Goodbye 2009... Hello 2010!

So, I know we are 20 days into 2010, but I have had all these thoughts bouncing around in my head that I figured I should get down on paper.

First off, I want to state why 2009 was such and AMAZING year, like one for the record books! 2009 started off with quite the bang, I was freshly engaged, woohoo! Sometimes I still have to pinch myself about this one, I mean if you had told me 3 years ago I would getting married to a cowboy boot wearing, pickup truck driving, why yes I do have the Texas flag tattooed on me man I probably would of laughed in your face! Oh, how time changes a person, and I am so happy I changed with the help of my cowboy boot wearing husband.

After tossing around wedding ideas, looking at venues, getting pricing from various vendors and freaking out over how we were going to pay for a wedding we pushed wedding planning off for a while. While not wedding planning, we started house hunting! (I know what you are thinking, "if you are freaking out over paying for a wedding, how are you going to pay for a house!?") But somehow buying our amazing house lead to our amazing wedding.

Now I get to drive through these gates everyday, and it's great.

In between the house buying and wedding we took a trip to Las Vegas, the first for both of us! It was a lot of fun! The one thing I would do different when we go again is to not be so tight with our money. Well, I will still probably be hitting that "print ticket" button anytime Robert doubles his money! But I mean I will loosen up to go out to a nice dinner (although we ate lunch at the Harley Davidson restaurant one day and it was amaaazing) and go to a nice show. I really wanted to see a show with showgirls while we were there and missed that.

Then there was the amazing wedding. Can I just take a moment and tell you all that it was all worth it. Every time I wanted to throw in the towel and just head down to the JP, every time I almost cried over a project not going the way I wanted it to, every time I got frustrated with Robert, every time I had to write a check, it was all worth it!

On that note, I am going to be recapping our wedding over the next several posts. I really want to do this so I have some place to look back on later on in life and go over everything that happened that day, because, honestly, it's still a blur!
