Monday, January 4, 2010 we come!

So Ryan and I had a wonderful new years, with our families, but without each other. I know very sad, our first married new years and we are not together...BUT we will be together everyday for the rest of our lives, so we decided to go for it! Ryan went with his sweet dad on a father son trip to the Auburn game! War Eagle!! (I almost had a heart attack with that game!)

While he was off doing that, my sweet mom came to visit me! We had a mother/daughter NYE: went to dinner (with a new huntsville friend of mine Danielle and her mom) and then went out for drinks! It was so fun! Then, Friday my dad came to take us to lunch and took mom on a little vacay for the weekend. My best friend, Molly, came to visit for the was SO cold, so we didnt have too much going on, but I loved spending quality time with her!

Now, I decided I would post my New Years Resolution's so I could be held accountable. I can honestly say last year was the first year I have stuck to my goal for the WHOLE goal was to simplify and I indeed DID THAT! I resigned from my yearbook position at school, narrowed my bible studies down to ONE, started saying NO to some things, finished Grad. school, and really started to focus on what was important in my, friends, and the hubby! (hence the marriage :) So this year the top resolutions are:

#1 Let GO, & Let God...I tend to try to do all things on my own, & need to let God be my controller ALL the time & really MEAN it when I say it! :) I really REALLY am going to try to work on my OCDness, concentrate on whats important, and if something is not exactly how I want it, LET-IT-GO!

#2 Try to be a better listener, motivator, companion, helper, cooker, encourager, and wife to Ryan, my new husband. I want to focus on whats important in our marriage, and let go of what is not. We feel we are building a solid marriage already and know that our foundation is what is important from now and until the end of our lives.
