2009 in Review - Part A

So, I've seen lots of people blogging about 2009 reflections...thought I'd share my own little memories from the past year...

Self Portrait

I don't really remember too much from this month...I'm thinking not anything to exciting happened..oh, we (my sister, BIL, brother, & SIL) decided to redo my parents living room for them while they were on their 30th wedding anniversary getaway to St. Croix! For 5 days straight, we all went over to there house and moved everything out of the living room and repainted/redecorated. We also bought three new pieces of furniture: sofa and two recliners....we all suprised them the night they got back and they were more than a little suprised :-) It was a good night. I also got REALLY sick twice this month - ended up in the ER one night...that was not so pleasant.

what do you see?

This month, the Mann and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary! And his 39th birthday! And Valentine's Day. Yeah - February 14th is kind of a big day around here ;-) I can't believe it has been almost 6 years now that we have been married! This is a shot of some roses he brought home for me....

March brought alot of photo taking opportunities...just being able to get out and practice. One of my favorite pastimes :-)

Slips (Troy would take me to lunch there & I also had lunch with my sister here a few times):

I couldn't find too many pictures for this month. This was the month I got notice that I was going to be laid off at the end of May. I was very upset by this news, because I had health insurance through my job, and the Mann and I had just started getting things rolling for some fertility treatment. Needless to say, that was put on hold. I did however find an AWESOME gynecologist!

oh my.

The Mann and I got new phones: Blackberry Storm!! I STILL adore that phone!

Weekend Creative

We went down to Pensacola Beach and I took some really nice photos! It was a beautiful day out ( I can still distinctly remember how pretty the sky was that day!)...

Weekend Creative

I had my last day of work with CCH on May 29th.

We went on a very long awaited vacation this month!! I thought for a quite a while that we were not going to be able to go (we had both requested vacation leave back in March) since I had lost my job...but, by some miracle we were still able to get away for a few days!! We went to Murphy, NC - my parents own a cabin up in the mountains up was SO beautiful and much needed. We also drove up to Pigeon Forge for a day and drove through the beautiful! I always forget how flat Florida is until I go out of state!

We celebrated Fourth of July, of course ;-) I also celebrated my 28th birthday! The Mann took me to have a dinner at our favorite place, Carrabba's...a yummy Italian place!

I also took a quick three day trip to South Carolina with my grandfather. His 85 year old sister had been involved in a car accident, and he couldn't make the trip by, I went along with him. It was a VERY long drive! We drove from Pensacola, FL to Myrtle Beach, SC, all in one day...I was very, very glad to get to a hotel that evening! This picture is of a couple of horses on his sister's property...

I'll be sure to post the second half of my 2009 Review tomorrow!
