2011 Wrap Up

As I sit here on the couch contemplating 2011, I have an overwhelming sense of peace, tranquility and the strong urge to fart. Ummm wait, I meant the strong urge to reflect on all the blessings I have been given this year. (Although I do kind of need to fart, too)

MY Top Ten Moments of 2011:

1.) Finding out I was expecting after taking a pregnancy test in the bathroom of Target on my lunch break.

2.) Celebrating my one year Wedding anniversary to Buckethead in the Wine Country and eating enough cheese and drinking enough wine to get me through my upcoming 9 month pregnancy dry spell.

3.) Realizing my dreams were coming true when I found out we were having a little girl, surrounded by our family and friends.

4.) Spending Spring Break in Disney World.

5.) Having an excuse to gain 25 pounds.....and counting.

6.) My husband having to ice his balls and his knee due to two surgeries in one month-- (one of those surgeries resulting in Baby Reese).

7.) Trying to help out the economy by purchasing a new house and a new car.

8.) Starting my SAHM role early by pulling a crazy pregnant lady moment by storming out and quiting my job. (And having the kind of husband that's totally cool with that).

9.) Robert Griffin III winning the Heisman (okay, maybe that's not my top ten but I'll throw it in there for the husband)

10.) Realizing that life has turned out exactly how it should be. Thank you Jesus!

HERE'S to 2012!! Happy New Year!!
