baby Jones and thoughts about 2010...

While I spent over 10 hours in a car in about a 30 hour period this weekend, I was so glad to be able to go spend some time with my family and go to Heather's baby shower in Gulfport (pics to come soon!). Heather still looks fantastic of course and she got so many adorable (and some very practical) gifts for Jones.
Heather's sweet friends Lindsey, Laura, Laurette, Amanda, Katelyn (who was missed), and Tricia hosted the shower and it was perfect. Seeing the nursery for the first time and watching Heather receive such sweet gifts makes me so excited about Jones' arrival!
And about the 10 hours...well... here's how that happened. Friday afternoon, Mom, Dad, Nana and I headed to Clinton (over a 2 hr. drive) to spend the night with Kristen and Rob. Kristen was on call Friday night, and when she got off work Saturday, she, Mom, Nana, and I drove to Gulfport (3 hours from Clinton) for the shower. Unfortunately, we had to leave pretty soon after the shower was over and drive back to Clinton (again...3 hours) to drop off Kristen and pick up my dad, who'd been hanging out with Rob and Henry for the day. It was about 8 pm at this point, and Dad, Mom, Nana, and I headed back to Vegas (+ 2 hours and some). Do the math and you'll see that it all adds up to over 10 hours. I was exhausted last night, but it was totally worth it. Wouldn't have missed it for the world.
Meanwhile, my friend Hope posted some 2010 (two thousand ten, or twenty-ten??? What do you think?) questions, and I thought I'd waste a few minutes answering them! Want to copy? Go ahead...knock yourself out.
2010 Questions:
Will you be looking for a new job?
Hopefully not! I'm pretty happy with the one I have now!
Will you be looking for a new relationship? Looking? Doesn't that make me sound a little desperate?
New house? Possibly! I'm looking to buy. We'll see what happens!
What will you do different in 2010? More contentment.
New Years resolutions? Thoughts, ideas, and goals maybe, but I don't like using the word "resolution". Too much pressure.
What will you not be doing in 2010? Getting married.
Any trips planned? Yep! I'm going to NY with Alexa during Spring Break and going to the beach with HEGS in May! So excited about BOTH!
Wedding plans? Not my own, but happy to help others!
What's on your calendar? important dates. Isn't that what most people include on their calendars?
What can't you wait for? My nephew to arrive in April and Kristen, Rob, and Henry to move here in June!
What about yourself will you be changing? Nothing. I'm practically perfect in every way. Just call me Mary Poppins.
Will you be nicer to the people you care about? I always try to be!
Will you dress differently this year than you did in 09? At school? It seems so since we're going to be wearing some sort of uniforms next year. Hopefully that means I'll have more money to spend on fun clothes.
Are you going to be in school in 10? As a teacher..yes. As a student...NO.
How will you make more money in 10? Teaching and working at MINT on the side!
Will you do charity work? Yes.
Will you be nice to people you don't know? I tend to start random conversations with people I don't know (ex. check out workers at the grocery store). Kristen and Heather get annoyed by this trait of mine.
Do you expect 2010 to be a worse year for you than 2009? Here's to hoping it's a better year! I'm not pessimist...
How much did you change from this time last year til now? Hmm....not sure I've changed that much. Just one year closer to 30.
Do you plan on having a child? One day hopefully, but I'm thinking most likely NOT this year! Ha!
Will you still be friends with the same people you are friends with now? Absolutely.
Major lifestyle changes? Who knows?!
Will you be moving? Possibly!
Is there anything you are not looking forward to this year? No! Kristen is moving to Starkville and Heather is having a baby! 2010 is going to be great!
What change would you like to make to your life? Life is good.
I hope your weekend was great and if you're lucky enough to have the day off tomorrow like me, then I hope you enjoy it! :)
