I am going to keep this short because one of my resolutions is to simplify. I obviously didn't follow up with my previous plans for weight loss coverage on my blog over the holidays. All I can say is I am grateful for the New Year and a New Start.
In that light, here are some high points for 2010
-MOVING TO UTAH!!!! This has been the best thing we have ever done.
-I am healthy. (another biggie)
-Jeff and I have done more active things together in the 6 months we've lived here than we have in our previous 12 years of marriage.
-Reilly was baptized.
-My nephew got off of his mission and is now here at BYU
-Becoming close friends with my cousins who live 5 minutes away
-Taking piano lessons (thank you Leslie!)
-Having a private concert by my ever so talented opera singing friends. It was a thrilling experience for me.
-Having before mentioned talented singing friends become some of our closest and bestest friends.
-Sunday dinners at Jeff's parents house (we sure miss you guys!)
-our new ward
-Lunches with my parents and brother
-Hanging out with my brother and his family
-Reilly is doing so well in school and he loves it here
-working for Raw Melissa
-Having George Durrant as a neighbor (yes, my fellow ward members, I am still a bit star struck by that--I've been a Durrant fan ever since Devin played for BYU and later, after reading many of Brother Durrant's books)
-Reilly walking or riding his bike to his new school
-Catching up with old friends who lived with us back East but have also relocated to Utah (there are still a few we are trying to catch)
-Having lots and lots of company stay in our house
-Feeling happy the majority of the time
-Getting to know Stephanie "NieNie" Neilson a little bit
-Finding lost friends on facebook
-Seeing "The Scarlet Pimpernel" in the theatre
-Rooftop concerts in Provo
-our new house
-our new car
-Gardening with my mom
-Getting my family to dance to Just Dance on the wii (especially my parents, brother-in-law, etc.)
-starting to wear fun stripey socks
-Jeff designing and tailoring his Halloween costume to perfection
I could go on and on, but I have already passed the brief post that I intended. I really don't know how to be brief. I'm trying.
Here's to 2011 and the best year YET!!!
