Here's to 2009 ...

It's hard to believe today is 2010. What a year the last one has been! I like to do my years in review so I can look back on them. I can only hope 2010 is a wonderful year! 


A & I went skiing. This is something he really enjoys, where I am still learning. We like to go a couple times a year. It is a fun hobby for the both of us to do together. I am looking forward to doing the same thing thing year! 


My cousin and his wife brought little Ava into this world. It has been fun to see her grow up! It's hard to believe her 1st birthday is right around the corner!

I also was approached by my wedding photographer to do some bpics for promotion. I also did this as A's Valentines Day gift. I am so glad I did this! I think every women should get these done! It was a blast.


My step-mom arraigned for family pictures done at her  house. I remember my baby brother wanted nothing to do with the photographer! I can't believe how long my hair is in these pictures!


The start of kickball season! I look forward to this every year! Our team name is Jimny Kick-It
(clever right!?) Kickball is always a good time. We play all the way through the end of July!


Andy's brother Cody graduated from Marine's bootcamp. It was nice to get away for a weekend (which was also my birthday :) weekend) My favorite part was going to see the beach. We were only 20 minutes from Hilton Head Island and A's parents drove over to let me see the beach for my birthday! I teased them because my actual birthday was spent on an airplane. 

This was also the month I decided to chop my hair off! I am so glad I did it! I still am in love with the cut. I really thought I'd miss my long hair but, surprisingly I don't!


This might of been my favorite month of the year! I went for a girls long weekend to Nashville, TN. My friend (on the right) moved down there two years ago. She asked Megan and I to come down for the CMA Music Fest. I am so glad we did this. Not only did we see some awesome bands (Darrius Rucker, Brad Paisley, Brooks & Dunn, Dierks Bentley,  & Reba) , but Heather got to show us around the city. I think this is something that we will do every year. I can not wait for this year!

The next place I got to go to was Vegas! A had been before but it was my first time. I really think he enjoyed showing me around the city and all the casinos (on his first trip there he played poker at the MGM for 8 hours!). While I didn't come back a big winner, A won back all the money that paid for the trip! I loved this city and would go back in a heart beat!


A's cousin Stacey came back in for a visit from Denver. We all went to a grill out followed by catching a Red's game. I love going to the ball games in the summer.


My step-mom had a mini photo shoot. Looking at these make me miss the summer. I was so tan!

This is also the month we got Carson a friend. Here is Nala.


A and I celebrated our one year anniversary. It's funny how one year till the wedding feels like it takes forever, but the first year of marriage flies by! I am looking to many more years celebrated!

We also lost A's grandma Apple on the 22nd. I loved Apple like my own grandma and we both still miss her very much.


This month we celebrated my bff Lauren's 24th birthday!

It's also the month I got my new camera that I still am falling in love with!


Thanksgiving at my house. I LOVE hosting things at my house. I get into the whole thing. Every year my brother and I switch off so Thanksgiving '10 will be at his house.


Going to cut down our Christmas tree is one of my favorite things about this time of year. We look forward to the first weekend in December every year!

Christmas day. This was our 8th Christmas spent together, 2nd married.

And to finish off the year..

After the Bengals game on 12/27 I got to hang out with Chad Ochocinco. I follow him a twitter and got an invite to party with him after the game. So Lauren, David, and I went down to celebrate the Bengals AFC-North victory. Chad in under the Budweiser sign, Lauren and I are right below him (we were close enough to reach back and could of touched his leg) David is in the front to the right. We were holding up the 15 for the late Chris Henry. Awesome way to end the year! (Lauren and I also saw him the day before at the Gap and chatted in line with him!)

So that was my 2009! Of course there were things I left out but I remembered the highlights. I can't wait to see what 2010 has in store!
