2007....the best is yet to come!

I will have to say that this was a good year, and i think (well, i know!) that 2008 will be better.

What did 2007 bring?
  • I started a new job, and kind of a new beginning. I had struggled with the choice to leave my previous job, and I finally decided to take the leap. I love my job, while i wish it paid better, I'm definitely content for now!
  • We got engaged-Valentines Day! I have never cared for that stupid, hallmark holiday, which is why he proposed on that day! I kind of laugh sometimes when i think about it but now i will look forward to it each year! He is so funny-I posted a while back about his lack of ability to keep a surprise or gift for very long....he ALMOST woke me up at midnight the night before to give me the ring. He kept getting it out of the box, and staring at it. He's too cute!
  • We bought our house! We could not be any happier about our choice, and one day when we are done with more updates i will post some pics! It will be a labor of love, but its our beginning!

Wow....2008 will be awesome! I am sure of that....mostly because we are getting married! I cannot wait, and i know as soon as Jan 1st rolls around, time will fly and the next four months will be here before we know it! EEEK!

This New Years Eve, we decided to go low key...very low key and i am excited. Good friends of ours and us will be heading to Remy's for a nice, relaxing meal before we celebrate the new year! The menu looks delicious! You can choose from 3-4 courses! Now, decisions, decisions, decisions.
