 ...i hereby resolutionize (yeah, it's a word.  deal.) to not gain a bajillionty pounds in 2010 because of my new friend.  I shall give away all baked goodies to friends and family.

a year in review

In 2009:
I gained 20 lbs
Got engaged
Planned a wedding
Spent a lot of time with the most awesome toddler on the planet
Lost 25 lbs
Got married
Gained every pound back a week after the wedding
went BACK to SCHOOL (eek)
Learned more medical terminology than I ever thought possible
Changed my name
Made some really awesome new friends
Learned a HUGE (and awesome) secret
Got devastating news
Reevaluated what's important to me
Lived well, loved much, and laughed often...

2009 was a TOUGH year for so many people--a lot of people (myself included) had to reconsider everything that's important and make some major life changes.  It was a year for friends and family.  Here's to many happy memories in 2010, and for surviving 2009!

I can't even think about going back to school.  The idea of forging headlong into spring semester gives me the heebie jeebies and I can't even begin to wrap my mind around the idea that break ends next Wednesday.  I'm somewhat enjoying the mind-numbing awesomeness from endless days spent babysitting and watching really (did I mention really) bad daytime television

I feel sort of like I'm back in high school again...

...And I love it :-)
