- What did you do in 2010 that you’d never done before?
Something I did this year that I never have before was having a baby, but I'm sure that is pretty obvious! Makes you think about wanting to try new things especially when you can't think of anything else!
- Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Last year I didn't even have time or that frame of mind to make resolutions! I was just enjoying my honeymoon! But I guess that's alright cause even if I had I wouldn't have stuck with it, I have a short attention span and can't stick to things! I would like to say that this year I will exercise more and enjoy each day not sweat the small stuff but who sticks to half of what we want to do! So this year lets just say my goals are... Lose the last 18 lbs of baby weight, run a 5K with Matt, and enjoy time with family!

Can't say that I really bought anything exciting this year! Bills and food takes any extra!
- Whose behavior merited celebration?

Monday, December 27, 2010
Our busiest week of the year has started! Christmas was great! JJ got spoiled of course as did mom and dad :) We blessed JJ last night it was amazing. I am so grateful for this wonderful gospel and my eternal family! Tomorrow is Matt and I's one year anniversary, I can't believe everything that has happened in just one year! So in honor of the year ending we will do a year in review. We moved to Murray from Springville on March 1st. Got our puppy that week, and just a few weeks later found out we were expecting! We lost sweet Kim in April and we miss her so much! Having JJ with us we can really feel how close we really are to lost loved ones! Then months of contractions and not so fun pregnancy complications. We finally welcomed JJ to the world November 18! He was 6lbs 14oz and 21" long!
He has already grown so much! We had to find a new home for our dog, he thought it was ok to eat everything including baby socks and shoes! This Wednesday is my 22nd birthday! Matt and I will be spending the night at a hotel in Orem for New Years/Anniversary this Friday. I can't believe this year is ending when it feels like it just began. We are so excited for the new year and new milestones in our lives!
