2011 Already...?

Wow. Here we are again. Another new year. Where in the hell did this one go? It wasn't especially amazing or especially bad, but man did it go by fast. A lot has happened, good and bad, as well as indifferent. I feel like if nothing else, I've grown a lot, as has my relationship with David and my family. I graduated with my Master's degree, and celebrated 4 years of marriage to my amazing husband. 

Rather than making the stereotypical new year's resolution, I've decided that I'm just going to commit to making this next year the best year that we can possibly make it. I am looking forward to trying to start a family with David, and see what this new year will bring for us. Happy New Year everyone!

So I've had Skype on my computer for a while, because with David always working so late, he and I used to Skype occasionally when he would work a double and do overnights, but that was a rare occasion, and I'd kind of just forgotten it on the back burner. However, with all this talk of David potentially trying to go into the Navy, it's bringing me a little closer to my military wife friends, that are in other places of the country right now, and making me want to bring it on out of the woodworks. I'm very grateful to have friends that are willing to discuss their lives with me and help me on my way should this become a reality for us. Unfortunately, because they are so far away, meeting up with them isn't really an option, so I figure Skype might be a nice addition to our generic letters back and forth or facebook.

Loving My Nook!

I am so happy and so thankful that I got my Nook for Christmas!

I am absolutely loving it! I picked up a hard case

and reading light

for it with my giftcards, and ordered Portia DeRossi's book, Unbearable Lightness.

Currently, I am reading Dead Until Dark, and loving it too!

In other news, I'm feeling a little anxious, and excited. Excited about Elizabeth's wedding coming up, getting to see friends along the way, and getting to see new places, and seeing her get married to someone who I think is great for her, and she definitely deserves to be happy! Anxious because I'm trying to think ahead of what is to come in our life. Where we will be in the next year. How my Dr.'s appointment with the lady-Dr. will go next week...If we'll be able to get pregnant...If we'll be living here...If David will go into the military. I'm definitely excited with anticipation as to what our new life will bring. Here's to a new year and a fresh start!

This has been a long, amazing day...

This was quite possibly the best Christmas ever! I got pretty much everything I wanted, has great food, great company, and just all in all a great day. I think that the only downfall was my stupid sickness and the non-stop coughing, but overall, very happy!

Merry Christmas!

It is officially Christmas! Have a great one! Happy holidays!

And the verdict is in...

He took a camera and put it up my nose and apparently the inside of my nose is completely enflamed. And apparently I have a deviated septum? Interesting. He wrote me a prescription for antibiotics, steroids, cough medicine, and two others. He said that if I take them, I should be good for Christmas, which is good. I'm about over all this mess. Bleh.

Sick and Tired...

So David and I have been sick for the past week or so and it's killing both my ability to sleep and to breathe. I've got all kinds of drainage and a cough that hurts. Going to the Dr. today finally because this was the earliest he could see me. I'm just anxious to get rid of this crap. :(

Simply Amazing:

Tuesday David and I got to go to Disney for free! We started at Magic Kingdom, then went to Hollywood Studios, and ended by watching Candlelight at Epcot. It was freezing outside, but it was a GREAT day! Here's a pic from in front of the Osbourne Family Spectacle of Lights!

What A Great Weekend..

Yesterday David, Renee and I went to Seaworld for their Christmas celebration before our tickets expire at the end of the month. It was really pretty! We had a lot of fun and rode Kracken a ton of times. There was a nice ice skating show and lit up trees, and we had chocolate covered deliciousness. :)

Then today, we got to go see Transiberian Orchestra with my parents and it was AMAZING! They had this awesome light show, lazers, pyrotechnics, flame throwers, and more! The electric guitars were awesome, as was the main violinist. Insane! I loved it!
