2009 in Review

January - Jeremiah and I drove to Oklahoma to see the Flaming Lips New Years Show.

February - I turned 26 and had a yummy Hello Kitty Cake!

March - Jeremiah and I met up with Cameron in Denver for and Andrew Bird Show

April - Sweet baby Salem Delaney was born on April 26th

May - Moved in to my new casita! Adrianna and Addison turned 6 and three years old.

June - Not too much happened this month… Celebrated Father’s Day at my parents and played in the pool with my nieces, it was a nice relaxing day.

July - We celebrated our 1 year Anniversary! Jeremiah and I…and for my present were tickets to see Ra Ra Riot, Andrew Bird, And Death Cab for Cutie at Red Rocks! We stayed overnight in Denver had some great food and shopping the next day. What a sweet BF I have.
Later that month we also got to see Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, it was in dive bar in downtown Denver and the show was really really good and cheap! $10!!!

August - My bestie Adria and her baby belly came from Omaha for a little visit. We shopped, ate, and just hung out like the good ’ol days. We are low maintenance friends and need little to no entertainment when we hang out which is always nice.

September - My mom and sister’s birthday are just days apart so I thre them a little get-together for the fam. We had a nacho bar and it was delish!!! Jeremiah and I also went to the Balloon Glow which consisted of about 20 hot air balloons lit up at night, it was so beautiful. We ended the month with my last show of the year and saw Matt & Kim! It was such a blast and I even got to meet them both and get my shirt signed.

October - My favorite month of the year! Almost this whole month I decorated and got ready for my “Monster Mash!” My house looked so cool and everyone had a great time including me. I dressed as a killer clown for the party and then again on Halloween since I had my party the week before.

November - I took a mini vacation to Omaha for about 5 days to visit Adria and help out with her baby shower. I made her décor and favors. We shopped again, ate some yummy food and decorated her nursery. I already miss her L

December - This month just flew by can I can’t seem to get over it. Well I guess the whole year did. I made tons of cookies, Christmas cards, and ornaments. I filled some orders and had some sales in my shop!! It didn’t feel like a normal Christmas I think because I am getting older maybe?? It was good anyway just seemed like a really short holiday season.

All in all it was a good year with all the good and the sometimes not so good things that happened I think they make me a stronger and wiser person.

Cheers to a safe New Year and New Beginnings! I can’t wait to see what 2010 has in store for me.

I can't believe it's already over...

It's seems like this year flew by without me even noticing! It kinda freaks me out. Not too much has really happened this year or that I think is a big deal. It was a good year none the less. This Christmas was nice, calm and relaxing. Now the days up until Christmas were not relaxing. Trying to get gifts on a super tight budget and make stuff for gifts and fill orders for other people gifts, it got a little overwhelming but I made it through with out having a melt down! YAY! :) Here are a few pictures from my Christmas. Tomorrow I will post my 2009 highlights and pictures.

Bright lights make me happy...

One of my most favorite things about this time of year is the Chritmas lights. I wish everyone decorated their houses so when you drove down the street all you would see is twinkling lights. It would be soo bright they could turn the street lights off until January!! That would be amazing :) I can't even believe Christmas is next week, this month seriously flew by without me even noticing. I've had so many projects and orders I've been trying to get done I guess I just didn't realize it. Well here are some photos that warm my heart. Enjoy and goodnight.
