Old and New Top 10

Here is my synopsis of the past year and a look ahead to the year to come!

Top 10 Memories of 2008
1: Stewart graduating from college and commissioning into the US Army.
This was so awesome and I was so proud of my sexy hubby. It felt like we could FINALLY move on to the next phase of life.
2: Quitting my job.
This was so nice because, again, it was a milestone to our next phase in life. Plus it really sucked.
3: Moving to Fort Knox.
It was so nice to be together with Stewart again. I was ready for a little adventure in my life too.
4: Eli learning to read and write.
This is the funnest thing about having a child. Watching them learn is so exciting.
5: Our Capitol Reef trip.
We had the best time on this family trip I think that it will go down in history as one of the best we ever had.
6: Danny and Mike's weddings.
Having all of my siblings married is so great! Now if they will just start having children...
7: My sewing projects.
I have loved having a sewing machine. It's so nice to be able to have a craft to do.
8: A fun summer.
We sure missed Stewart a lot but we were able to have a lot of fun too. I loved not being tied down to the apartment.
9: My discovery of new favorite things: Rock Band and Jones cream soda, and gelato.
'nuff said.
10: The movie Mamma Mia.
Sorry, but I LOVE it. If I even mention it in front of Eli he says "you're out of control about Mamma Mia."

Top 10 things to come in 2009:
1: My new baby. (This is just positive thinking! No announcement or anything.)
Keep your fingers crossed for us!
2: Being there for Stacy's delivery.
She better wait until I get home or else!
3: Disneyland.
We are planning to take Eli there before the deployment.
4: Stewart's deployment.
This obviously isn't a fun thing but it is to come. Boo hoo.
5: Living with my parents.
I'm so happy that we have this option available to us! I would be too lonely with Stewart gone to live on my own.
6: Some sort of vacation with Stewart.
We can't decided what to do though!
7: Learning to roller skate well.
8: Attaining my goal weight.
I know. It's about time right.
9: My 7th wedding anniversary.
uh oh! The 7 year itch! ;)
10: Becoming a 30 year old!
I'm freaking out a little bit but my friends who have done it seem to have survived.

I love the top ten concept - you should do MORE! :-)

Lamb Fam said...

I love that you copied Alicia (ha ha) and did the top 10! I love it! I'm glad you had a good 2008 and here's to a better and more fertile 2009!
When you're back and living with your parentals we need to get the boys together!

Allison said...

You are not turning 30. There is no way you are going to be that old.

Mickael said...

Oooops I said that not Ally. She probably can't believe it either!

Becca Jo said...

I thought that Ally was just rubbing it in my face! but you were just amazed to realize how OLD you are! ;)

The Bollinger Family said...

I can see it now: you and Stewart roller skating on the beach with a big pregnant belly......
When will he get deployed?

The Haights said...

I don't know how I missed this post. I never saw it for some reason. It must not have updated my list.

I think you guys should go somewhere really warm.

Bobbie said...

You can't really be coming up on 30, can you?
