hello, double digits. happy to see you. i still haven't decided how to say your name. my guess is that twenty ten will stick, but grant is rooting for oh-ten. we'll see.
we are home from nebraska now, and nearly ready for the plunge back into normalcy. as usual, christmas vacation has been a giant pause in our regular life. a pause that has spoiled me with the luxury of spending every waking moment alongside my husband. we're getting up all our guts to press play tomorrow morning, but i've a feeling i'll be homesick for grant by 8 am.
so far in 2010, i've done a few things in my life.
i said yes to being haley's maid of honor. woohoo!
i played the wii, for the first time ever.
i scored a 245 in wii bowling, which is better than i will ever do in real life.
i wore pearls.
i downloaded the newest john mayer album.
i bought some organic things at the grocery store and felt cool.
i listened to maroon 5 while sharing the bathroom with my sisters.
i signed up to bring something sweet to sunday school.
i learned about the nfl playoffs.
i read the pioneer woman cookbook. that sounds weird, but you really can read this cookbook.
i watched the movie that won best picture in 1934. it's a favorite.
i made a list of more books and movies to take in during 2010. tune in tomorrow to see.
well, here i go. off to get back into the swing of things. it's a school night, you know. i need to trim grant's neckline and make his lunch and set out my laundry baskets for the morning. see you soon.

I love when you talk about the simple things that you do as a wife (making Grant's lunch, doing the laundry)...seeing how excited you are about being a wife makes me more excited about my wedding.

Congrats on being a maid of honor (I guess for you, it would be matron), it's so wonderful being close to a sister on her big day.

And congrats on Wii bowling--my fiancee has a Wii and I never thought I would like it as much as I do.

Enjoy the last night of your holiday break:)

Happy Monday!

i'm hoping for oh-ten too. that seems the easiest to say. happy new year!

I think it would be matron of honor since you are married. :)

I agree with the oh ten.

Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
