Three years ago ...

I was so excited while waiting in the bridal room at the church that I could barely sit still.

We had an awesome time with our guests during cocktail hour.
I spent a very important day in my life with my best girls,
the best co-workers I could ever have in my life,
and the best brothers a Deltasig could ask for.
Kids at weddings are a hot topic of debate, but our reception wouldn't have been the same without all the kids who hit the dance floor.
And we ate the yummiest cake I have ever had in my life. nomnomnom :-)

Three years later and I haven't changed the locks yet ...... haven't even contemplated it ...... I love you Eddie!

The Book Challenge: December Recap

I missed my revised goal of 65 books, but that was out of sheer laziness on my part. I can't complain at all though. I finished out the book challenge with some great stories, especially the last book I read. Before going any further, I have to give a shout-out to Jessica, who has been an endless source of fantastic recommendations & reviews. Whenever I got stuck trying to decide what to read next, I always found an answer within her blog.

The final books of 2009:
58. The Luxe by Anna Godberson
59. Rumors by Anna Godberson
60. Envy by Anna Godberson
61. Splendor by Anna Godberson
62. The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak

My reading goals for 2010? To read at least 50 books again, but with a focus on some big books and classics that I've been meaning to tackle for a while.

Why Hello There 2010 ...

... you certainly seemed to sneak up on me. I guess that's what happens when you never quite get into the holiday season. It all passes by before your eyes and all of a sudden it's a new decade. Then you start to reflect on the past ten years and realize how much has happened in your life. I have to admit that the last decade brought a lot of change and upheaval to my life, but overall it was good to me.

So I am trying to be good to the new decade by starting off on a positive foot. I'd like to say that it was an easy day, but I hit a rough patch in the morning that had the potential to entirely derail my day. I'm a big believer in setting the tone for the year by your actions and attitude on January 1st though, so I forced myself to turn the day around rather than wallowing. I made a yummy brunch . I took a chance on an interesting-sounding sparkling shiraz instead of my usual champagne (verdict --- thumbs up). I called my parents & my brother. I went to the gym and did a solid 30 minutes of cardio (gasp! --- like literally dude; I'm way out of shape). Then I came home and made Eddie one of his favorite meals. And now I'm actually blogging again, about something other than books or skating.

So bring it on 2010. You might have startled me a bit, but I think I'm ready for you.
