A recap of 2010 & hopes for the new year

As I sit here at home on this 2010 New Years Eve, I look back at what a truly amazing year this has been. I honestly told Mr. C tonight that this has by far been the biggest year of my life and I don't know how another year could top this one.
Here's a little recap...
Had a baby April 27th, 2010. His name is Landon Oliver Cotton and he is the greatest gift God could ever give me. I am so proud to be a mother. It is the greatest job I could ever have.

He is now 8 months old and I can't believe how fast the time is going by. He will be walking soon!! Every day he looks into my eyes, gives me a smile, reaches for me to hold him, and everything in my world makes sense.

On August 13th, 2010 I married the most amazing man that I have ever met. We have been together for several years now, and each year gets better. I am looking forward to the next 60 years with this man.

And lastly in big news from this year, we are in the process of buying our first house! We were suppose to close yesterday, but as I am finding out.. "home buying" is going to kill me! a very stressful process. Thanks to the big snowstorm in the north, it delayed the closing, so I am crossing my fingers that we will close next week. Which I guess makes that a "2011" achievement, but oh well.. I am adding it here tonight too!
So now.. what do I want to look for in this next year?
1. I would like to grow closer to my husband, making each moment count. I want to listen to him more, and put him first in my list of busy duties.
2. I want to be the best mommy that I can for L. He is changing every second and I really want to capture as much as I can to remember as he gets older.
3. I would like to become the best teacher that I can for my class. I hope to learn a lot from this first year, to know what to do and not to do next school year in August.
4. I would like to become a better granddaughter, spending time with my grandparents more. I know that time is precious with them and I want them to get to see L has he is growing.
5. Of course the cliche' of losing weight is a given... I am still holding onto my pregnancy weight and I am ready to be in better shape than I was pre-pregnancy. OH BOY>>>Here's to making that big change!!
6. I want to improve my skills as an interior decorator.. HAHA.. I hope to make my new home a beautiful and comfortable place where my family will live.. I am very excited about the possibilities!
7. I also look forward to really being a pro at saving money, putting some away for a rainy day!
8. I hope to be a better blogger this year. I have been very slack, but since creating this new page, I hope to write more posts!

THese are a few of my goals for '11.. what are some things you hope to accomplish or see?

  1. Great goals! And all of them are obtainable (that's the important part!). My goals are similar - work out more regularly, save money (duh!), pay off some debt, and get our finances in shape to buy a house in 2011/2012. Oh, and climb a 14-er since we live in CO now!

    love the blog - keep up the good work - and love baby L - he's adorable.
