It was a very BIG year...

2001 was a very big year for me. I started out as a Senior at SUU. I had great roommates and had finally decided on a major. I got my heart really broken for the first time. I graduated with Honors from SUU in Psychology. I met a really cute guy that drove a 99 Mustang and liked to waterski. I had a fabulously fun summer dating and falling in love. I got engaged and then married. September 11 happened 10 days before our wedding, but it still went off without a hitch. I worked three jobs putting my darling new husband through school. And I spent New Years Eve on Maui. It was the first time I actually had someone to give me a New Year's Eve kiss and we fell asleep early. Ha ha!

And the last ten years have flown by. We've moved to SLC, Logan and back to Cedar City. I worked for the Child and Family Services, Adrianna's, Applebee's and started my own business. Joey sold the mustang and graduated from USU. We went through a Mazda 626, a Jeep Grand Cherokee and now we own a really cool MiniVan and a beat up Prism. We've had three darling babies. We bought and sold our first house and bought another one.

And now it's 2011. I haven't even really blogged this year. Not because our lives haven't been interesting. They HAVE! Things are going fabulously!!! I think I haven't wanted to jinx it. But I do love blogging and having someplace to document our crazy little lives. 2011 is shaping up to be better than any before. We started it in a NEW HOME! We made kind of a crazy bet when we moved in 5 months ago. It was a short sale and so we put in an offer and rented it on hopes it would actually go through. We closed on it last week and are now the proud owners of TWO mortgages! Don't tell the kids, but we are planning a big Disneyland trip to celebrate. Unfortunately the big anniversary trip is not going to happen this year :( Not enough time and funds. But even so, we'll celebrate 10 fabulous years together in September. Baby number four will make his/her appearance about the same time. And after that....who knows! Our lives will probably be too insane at that point to count on anything!

Aaccck!! Congratulations on the baby! That was very sneaky, casually mentioning it like that. Sounds like a super fun year ahead of you, and a wonderful 10 years behind you. Here's to the next 10 being every bit as wondrous.

You're a freaking ROCK STAR. You have had a busy decade. We got married in '01 too and have the same trips planned as you this year. A visit to Disneyland and NOTHING for the anniversary. When are you guys going to Cali? We're going in May. Congrats on #4, I don't know how you do it all. I nominate you for Woman of the Year.

You're cute. I like the bit there at the end. Way to sneak that in and congratulations. I can't believe that it's been ten years since I met you, and I agree, a lot has happened since. May the next ten be even better.
