Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, Everyone! I hope your respective festivities we're fabulous and that you rung in the new year with those you love most--we sure did, minus my entire family. Last night we went over to our friends the Goodwins for their annual party. There were three age groups--the parents, the college kids, and the kids. Us college kids spent the night playing hardcore rock band, Scene It, and Nerts. Adam had a great time reuniting with his childhood friends and you could tell we were all enjoying our time off from school. I have to say that one of the greatest perks of marriage is always having someone to kiss for New Years--it's a totally new occurrence in my life. Favorite quote of the night: "It's a whole new year for me to love you." Who said it?--Duh...Adam. Even though he said it in his "I know I'm being corny, but please think I'm cute anyway" face, it still gave me butterflies.
Last night basically marked the end of vacation. Although it's been a great break, I'm nowhere NEAR ready to start the next semester--especially when these nursing classes start exactly where I left off = no mercy. (Three more semesters, three more semesters...) 
Also, yesterday morning we went to Voodoo Doughnuts--a really yummy shop famous for their voodoo doll shaped doughnuts. Pics are below!
Oh, and I've decided that with each post I'm going to also state something I learned that day--as is most appropriate for our electronic journal. 
Lesson of the Day:
I learned the importance of people. Although Adam's family and I are only family by law, I truly felt apart of them from the beginning. With my family all the way on the east coast, it is important, especially for me, to open my heart and life to those around me. We all need somebody--why not have everyone you can? 
As always, we send our love and best wishes to everyone as we start this new year. May everything you wish and hope for in 2010 be yours. 

p.s. I really like the mild shoulder pads on this blouse. It gives a little lift to an otherwise basic outfit. Also, these pictures were taken at three in the morning. Nuff said. 
skinny jeans: unknown tj maxx brand. ruffled blouse: Target. Flowy cardigan: forever 21. black flats: apt. 1. pearl necklace: forever 21.

It's cool to see others that know about Nertz. You should definitely check out , the site for the National Nertz Association. There is a bunch of interesting Nertz information, videos, and photos there AND you can play Nertz on-line for free. I recommend it to all Nertz players! So cool. =)

So, I realize I don't know you that well (I found your posts on hopscotch and then I kinda blog stalked you...yup, I'm not afraid to say it!), but I'm in your ward. I noticed that Phil Goodwin is in one of these pictures. How do you know him? He is married to my cousin Jessica. Anyway, I've been meaning to talk to you at church because i'm working on getting into the nursing program and because I need to take lessons in style from you (my wardrobe consists of ill fiting mommy clothes...UGH).
