A New Year!

Well hello everyone!!

Wow, I cannot believe it is already another brand new year! I can't believe how fast last year went, but I am definitely looking forward to this year and what all it has in store for Jon and me. Of course the most exciting thing this year will be the arrival of our precious little girl! But I can't get ahead of myself, we still have several months to go ;) I love a fresh new start and look forward to tweaking some of my daily life to make more time for a healthy lifestyle! Less stress, less work, and more time to concentrate on the important things in my life! GOOD PLAN!

I hope you all had a FANTASTIC Christmas and a HAPPY NEW YEAR! I can't believe it has been since before Christmas that I've taken the time to blog. The holidays are always a busy time, and I didn't make enough to sit down and update y'all on our adventures. I'll give you a quick run-through...

Since we weren't able to be home for Christmas this year, we took the opportunity to get out of town and see one of Germany's famous little walled cities, Rothenburg. It was absolutely beautiful, quaint, and like a little fairytale town. (and did I mention 16 degrees and snowing!!!!) Minus the fact that it was unbelievably cold, we still had a wonderful time exploring the city. Instead of posting a gagillion pictures (like I always do), you can head over to our photo website to see the pictures of our Adventure to Rothenburg, if you'd like. Just click on the picture below.

Our New Year was VERY laid back! You know you're getting old (or you're pregnant) when you can't stay up until midnight! SO SAD!! But I did set an alarm... does that count?!? I wanted to at least give Jon a smooch to bring in the new year, even if I did turn back over and immediately fall back to sleep... Ya, It's an exciting life we lead!!

New Years Day we spent the ENTIRE day painting little Sophie's room! It was a lot of fun, but definitely a lot of work... (with our 12 foot ceilings!) We have one main large wall in her bedroom that we've decided to paint brown and green. We've ordered some really neat wall decals to put on the main brown wall and I think it is going to look fantastic! I just have to wait patiently for them to arrive................. I should have added patience to my list of resolutions!

Here are a few pictures of us bringing in the new year, hard at work!

The Before

I figured I'd stop with the picture overload and post more pictures later.

Sunday we spent the day putting more furniture together and doing more touch up painting. And of course I made us a huge pot of blackeye peas and cornbread for dinner. Gotta have that good luck rolling in for 2011! It's been a tradition in my family ever since I can remember, and I want to keep it going. Good luck is always welcome in this household!

Tomorrow, I will post pictures of what we've accomplished in Sophie's room so far!!

Until tomorrow, Tchuss!
And, I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!
