Happy New Year

I'm going to follow suite with Girl's Gone Child and do a recap of the year.

In 2008...

I started off the year being pregnant.
Gave birth to my beautiful son 6 wks early.
Made it through the 2 longest weeks of my life while he was in the NICU.
Learned that my life will never be the same.
And am thankful for that.
Survived on less than 3 hours of sleep a night for over 2 month.
Became a blogger.
Cried every night for over a week.
Yearned for a job change.
And now have a new career.
Had my 29th birthday, stressed over the next one.
Lost respect of my 2 best friends.
Came to terms that I may never lose the baby weight.
Decided marriage counseling is a necessary and good thing.

What a year, right?!

In 2009...

Tell Grady that I love him every day.
Will pay off at least 1 credit card.
Lose at least 15 pounds.
I'm hopeful that I'll strive in my new job.
Learn more about my husband.
Find a great circle of friends to surround myself with.
Spend more time with my mother.
And maybe just be happy with I am.

"Rear" did Christmas go?

**Look at the last picture to get the heading!

Man, Christmas came and went so quickly! I can't believe it's over :( But we had an amazing time!
We opened presents with my parents on Christmas eve, spent Thurs & Fri just us, and Saturday Jason's parents came in from Comanche.
Grady has more toys than he knows what to do with!!

Here's some amazing photos I took Christmas morning!

Super Exciting Weekend!

It's official...
I'm finally working in IT! My new title is Help Desk Analysis...sounds important doesn't it!?
I got my Blackjack II and laptop of Friday, moved all my stuff over to the IT department. I'll be the only girl on the Infrastructure Team. I'll make sure to put all my frou frou stuff out. Potpourri, scented candles, pictures of flowers and whatnot! :P

It's Christmas party time!!! Jason and I went to my company X-mas party last night. I can't believe they scheduled the party on a Friday at 7, knowing everyone gets off at 5?? It was ok, not as fun as last year. We all went out for drinks before and after the party. It's just not the same now that I'm a momma! My ass was exhausted by 10pm. LAME!!

Tonight is the Focke's 3rd annual X-mas party. Our friends Scott and Jenn have a Xmas party out in Lewisville every year. So we're taking Grady to his 1st party!! Hope he doesn't drink too much eggnog. (Yes I know not to feed a 10 month old eggnog!) We probably won't stay too long but it will be nice to get out and see everyone :)

As for Christmas...I've already purchased all Grady's gifts but I came across these two chairs that I can't stop thinking about :)
I know he doesn't really need one, but I just got to have it. Which do you think is cuter? The Mickey chair or the Pottery Barn with Grady's name?

Santa...please bring Grady a cute lil' chair so he can watch his Mickey Mouse Clubhouse in comfort.
Thank you...I'll make sure we put out chocolate chip cookies and a big glass of milk for ya. :)
