2009 in Review

So, since I didn't really write much in here in 2009, I thought I'd do Fat Bridesmaid's 2009 survey. Plus, one of my goals for this year is to post here at least once per week, so I figure I better get started! (More on my goals in a future entry!)

Was 2009 good for you? 2009 was very good. I'm sad to see it go, but I know there are other great things in store for me. I got a new job, bought a house, got married, and got a dog. Big things this year!
What was your favorite moment of the year? Walking down the aisle and seeing Eddie's face, then saying our vows. Our wedding was as perfect for us as it could have been!
What was your worst moment of the year? Probably when my mom's health had some scary spots. She had a fall in October & had to go to the nursing home. I was worried it would be long-term, cuz at first it wasn't looking so good for her to be able to come home. But after a few weeks, she did get to come home! Within a week though, she had a diabetic scare & they thought she'd lapsed into a coma. Thankfully she was OK, and it turned out it was just a diabetic-induced seizure. Those health scares were definately not a highlight of the year!
Where were you when 2009 began? With Eddie & his family at his mom's house, drinking champagne & kissing at midnight
Who were you with? See above
Where were you when 2009 ended? At the same place, with the same people!
Did you keep your new years resolution of 2009? I don't make resolutions, I make goals. I made a list of 20 items, and I'd say I accomplished at least half of them. I think my last entry was about this, actually!
Do you have a new years resolution for 2010? I have a new list of 20 goals, and I'll write about this in the future!
Did you fall in love in 2009? Even more in love with Eddie than I thought possible. And in love with our pooch, Dora.
Did you make any new friends in 2009? New people at work
What was your favorite month of 2009? August-we got married & honeymooned!
Why this month? See above
Did you travel outside of the US in 2009? No, never have been.
How many different places did you travel to in 2009? Let's see... Indiana in February & October to go to a nice restaurant that we like; Louisiana in May to visit my sister-and I travelled through Missouri & Arkansas on the way there & visited Texas while I was down there; then Florida on our honeymoon-and technically TN, since we had a layover there while flying home... so that's 7 states in a year! Wow!
Did you miss anybody in the past year? I thought a lot about my dad. This was the 10th anniversary of his death, on 12/31, so I thought of him a lot that day. But I also thought a lot about him around our wedding, as that was a milestone I knew he wouldn't get to see.
What was your favorite movie that you saw in 2009? The Hangover & Up
What was your favorite song from 2009? The song isn't from 2009, but it was probably the most special song for us this year--our wedding song, "This Kind of Love" by Sister Hazel.
How many concerts or plays did you see in 2009? We went to 1 concert-Zac Brown Band in October.
Did you have a favorite concert in 2009? ZBB!
What was your favorite book in 2009? I just deleted my book list from the year, so I can't even remember what I read! I know I read 19 books though!
Did you do anything you are ashamed of this year? Not that I can remember.
What was the biggest lie you told in 2009? I don't really make it a habit of lying... so I have no idea! LOL I told the people at TX Roadhouse on my bday that I was 21, instead of 26. LOL. That's about all I can think of!
Did you treat somebody badly in 2009? Not badly, but I could have been a more patient person.
Did somebody treat you badly in 2009? Not particularly, no.
What was your proudest moment of 2009? Purchasing our house & getting married
What was your most embarrassing moment of 2009? LOL hands down, it was when we were camping with Eddie's family. I always seem to have tummy trouble when we camp, and I could feel gas rumbling in my tummy. I was sitting straddled on a picnic bench & knew I had to fart. I tried to hold it in & could hear & feel the gurgling going on in my intestines. Eddie, his mom, and I were all sitting together talking when this was happening, and out of the blue, the gas just snuck out! And it WOULD NOT STOP. And did I mention I was on a wooden picnic table?! It was the loudest, longest, most embarrassing toot of my life! The more I tried to hold it in & get it to stop, the worse it was!
If you could go back to any moment of 2009 and change something, what would it be? I really don't know that I would change anything! Maybe getting our house in order after moving... we're still kind of in that in-between place where not everything is put away.
Where did you work in 2009? I started working at Carle Hospital as a Case Assistant, and I ended working at a local mental health center as a Prevention Specialist.
Favorite TV shows(s) of 2009? Biggest Loser, Paranormal State, Jon & Kate, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kendra...
Favorite Band(s) of 2009? I can't think of bands that were popular in 09 that I loved... my fave band has and always will be Counting Crows though.
Favorite Food in 2009? a local pizza place
Favorite Drink in 2009? Cherry Coke
Favorite Place in 2009? Our home, or our honeymoon location-St. Augustine, FL.
Favorite person(s) to be with in 2009? Eddie. Always.
Favorite person(s) to talk to in 2009? Ditto.
Favorite trip in 2009? Our honeymoon (though my solo trip to LA was also memorable!)
Favorite stores in 2009? Hobby Lobby
Hardest thing you had to go through in 2009? Not having my dad around for our wedding and my mom's health scares
Most exciting moment(s) in 2009? Walking down the aisle & getting the keys to our home!
Funniest moment(s) in 2009? LOL probably also the most embarrassing one from above! It's hard to pick a funniest one though, because Eddie and I always laugh so much together that we're often in tears because we've laughed so hard!

Happy 2010 everyone!

Reading about your embarrassing moment nearly made me spit milk all over the screen. So thanks for that! :-)
