Time flying

I have never been so excited to see Christmas stuff in the stores. I always used to roll my eyes and say.. "REALLY?... it's not even Thanksgiving yet" BUT this year, I have never been so happy for it. I just means we are THAT much closer to our time to try again.

Back in June I wrote a blog post about trying to plan things every month until December. It was planned so that we would have something to look forward to every month to help the time pass. But I just realized while trying to find a weekend to go visit Amy before we go on our cruise... I have NO free weekend until the cruise!

Lets see, we have Vegas next weekend, Oktoberfest after that. Val's sons surgery next, then an FSU game in Tallahassee the weekend after that, then off to Cincy for Dads surgery then back to leave for the cruise! Keep in mind I work every other weekend in between. But holy cow is time flying!

So I am crossing my fingers that 2010 is a better year for us. This year has proved to be a hard one. They always say your first year of marriage is the toughest, but I think we have managed quite well given our situation.

So I just have to say I am excited to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I pray every single night that we will be able to bring a baby home, to his/her crib.

So in 4 days, we board a plane to be in my Best Friend Noelle's wedding. I am so excited! It's the first wedding I will ever be in besides my own. I am excited for the dress and all! I love her fiance and I think they are so perfect for each other. I know we are going to have a great time and enjoy every second of it. I do wish that Nolan was coming with like we had planned since the day we found out we were pregnant, but I am going to have fun in his honor. I even got a nautical dress to wear to the rehearsal. I'm stoked!

Oh!.... and I put Nolan's solar light out at his grave. It looks so awesome! I can't wait until my next night off so I can go see it all lit up! I will post pictures as soon as I get them.

I forgot that this is your year of marriage. What an awful lot to handle :(

I'm excited for a wonderful rest of the year for you. I was so confused reading the beginning of your post, because last year (our first after our twins) I just *dreaded* Christmas! But you have a wonderful outlook.

Crossing my fingers with you for a wonderful 2010.
