Looking forward, looking back

Welcome, welcome 2010! We are ready and excited that you are here, since you are the year we will welcome our daughter into the world!

Casey and I had a wonderful New Year celebrating with our dear friends. 2009 was an absolutely awesome year, with so many things to be grateful for. Here is my top 10 list of favorite moments from 2009:

10. The Columbine 10 year anniversary, which was healing in its own way.

9. Watching the US Olympic curling trials. Seriously, it was fun - and soooo random!!! We'll be watching this February (probably at like 3 in the morning, but that's what DVR is for!). GO TEAM USA!!!

8. Hosting Jessica's bridal shower.

7. Going to Lake Dillon on the 4th of July. Awesome!

6. The Thursday morning gym-and-coffee routine Jessica and I managed to keep up for most of the year. (I don't think we ever once thought to take a picture of this. It probably wouldn't have been pretty anyway! Instead, here's the payoff of our hard work: running the Bolder Boulder)

5. Watching our friends pledge their lives to one another. This was truly the year of weddings. I went to something like 10 weddings this year, and although it was absolutely wonderful, I'm also glad we don't have to do this again for a while. Frankly, that's just too many!!!

4. Jessica's bachelorette party.

3. Valentines day!

2. Breakfast after our wedding at Blue Moose Pizza, where the friends indulged in the perfect hang-over food: pizza and calzones! We also watched as some weirdos tried to create a pully system from one hotel room to another - across the plaza - so that they could pass each other items without having to walk them through the hotel. I laughed so hard that morning!!

1. Without a doubt, finding out the big news was the highlight of our year!

As the perfect way to cap-off a wonderful holiday season, Casey and I also had a date last night to celebrate our 7 year anniversary. I can't believe we've been together for seven years! It is amazing to see how far we both have come, individually and together as a couple. Seven years ago, we were both just shy college students who bumbled into dating. Now, we have a house, a life and careers, a wonderful marriage, and a baby on the way. We've seen each other through quite a lot, and I am always amazed by how lucky we both are.

And, it was especially nice, considering it will probably be one of the very last dates we are able to have, considering we are about to become a family of three!

Welcome, 2010!!!
