New Year, New Opportunities!

It's a new year. 2010 was a crazy, fun, emotional, hard, exciting, new, and sad time for myself and my family. A quick recap:
- Spent New Years in Orlando with thousands of other people - will never do that again. 
- Andrew and I tied the knot!
- We decided to sell our house (or talked about it)
- I made it to Harry Potter World. 
- My aunt and uncle passed away within 2 months of each other. 
- My grandfather passed away. 
- Our offices moved from Newington to Herndon - while we still live in Dumfries! BLAH
- My best friend had her first baby. 
- I made it to Harry Potter World again. 
- Andrew and I got scuba certified.
- We brought in the new year with close friends at our house playing board games and drinking wine. It was one of the best New Years I've ever had. 

2011 is looking to bring some exciting times for us as well. In about 14 days I will be heading to Orlando for  Girls Only trip with my cousin and my mom. I'm really excited to spend the weekend with my mom and enjoy Harry Potter World just one more time. In March we are headed on a week long Caribbean Cruise with the Moore family and my best friend is tagging along!  In April Andrew and I will celebrate our one year anniversary. I am thinking we may go back to the Homestead - this is where he proposed. He can golf and I can be pampered at the spa during the day, then fine dining at night. We are planning to try starting for a family at some point next year and look forward to adding a new addition one day. Andrew also turns the big 3-0 in November so I'll need to plan something special for that. 

After driving to and from work the last few weeks we decided we are going to definitely put the house on the market this year. Two nights ago Andrew ripped up all the flooring in the kitchen and his dad is coming over Saturday to lay down the new tile.  Andrew put the squares down in the laundry room and I LOVE the tile we picked.  It looks awesome and so much better than the ugly green that is down now. I can't believe we waited so long to do this. While Andrew and his dad do the flooring I'll be steam cleaning all of the carpets upstairs and doing some cleaning. I've been looking at houses and found one that I loved in Sterling but it is pointless to look until we sell what we have. So that is our goal. Wish us luck!
