Here I am with friends (Emily and Ryan) and family (Angela and Randy) who also ran the race. A lot of my training was done with Emily and I totally appreciated her encouragment. Thanks!
She was truly enjoying it!
*Dave Ramsey's 13 week Financial Peace University Class led by Ryan and Emily. We decided it was time for us to keep track of our financial spendings and be debt free. Yep it takes sacrifices, but what a feeling. We were already somewhat good at it, but wanted to get better and start living a life like no one else. What a fun and encouraging class it was. I would encourage everyone to take this if you want to get out of debt and live at peace. We're done with credit card debt! Yay! Now we're tackling student loans. The opportunties for me being a stay at home mommy are right around the corner! Yay!
*DC trip! This was so fun. What drove us to go, was Glenbecks "Restoring Hope" rally. He listens to him ALL the time. We made it a long weekend and went without the girls. We had so much fun yet didn't see everything. I got to see some friends from the area and do what tourists do best! We can't wait to go again in September.
Here we are at the mall in front of the capitol. What a fun place to be!
*Robert gets a job as an Auditor for Crosslin & Associates. After his contract expired with Rural Development back in May when he graduated, he didn't have a job. He took the summer to study for 3 parts of his CPA. Looking back now, I'm so grateful he did this. It would have been really tough for him to work the hours he does now and study at the same time.
1st week of school
*Mom turns 50! My wonderful mom deserved a BIG party. So us girls planned a nice birthday surprise for her. She enjoyed every minute of it. We even did a slide show of her from when she was little until now. It was hard trying to sneak these pictures from her house without her knowing. We did a fall theme since her favorite season is fall too. We invited all her close friends and had a big dinner feast for her. It was awesome.
*Susan Komen's 5k race for the cure. This was something I participated in just to honor my moms victory of breast cancer. This meant a lot to me and I will be running it again. This year my goal is to have her do it with me.
*Mercy Ministries 5k race. Another wonderful experience with meaning behind it! Not only is Mercy Ministries a great organization to help young women with dibilitating circumstances, but I ran with friends, and my dear husband.
*My birthday-29! Yikes, I'm almost 30. My birthday weekend was great! I seriously did something every night! It was so much fun. Friday night I celebrated at yummy Chuey's with these wonderful girlfriends.
Here is the hubs and me ending the new year! Happy New Years!
Overall 2010 was a great year. It was filled with happiness and sadness that have helped us move forward. God bless you in this new year. Looking forward to seeing what 2011 will bring.
