23rd Birthday and End of the Year

Yesterday was my 23rd birthday! I can't believe I am already 23 and finished with college. I feel like I'm still 16 and in high school, ha!

 I had a great day that included lots of relaxing and running some errands to exchange christmas gifts and unpacking from all the Christmas traveling. Only downside about my December birthday is having it 4 days after Christmas. Oh well, at least I have a spa appointment tomorrow for a facial and massage! So excited. 

In 2 years, I want this for 25th birthday cake! So so so cute.

I can't believe it's already the end of 2010.... This year FLEW by! I wish I had more pictures to recap the year, maybe that can be a goal for 2011-to take more pictures!

I think a few highlights from 2010 would definitely be graduating from University of Kentucky! I walked and did the whole graduation ceremony in May but still had to do my student teaching semester this fall.

Officially an alumni of the University of Kentucky
 My family - Wendy, Dad, me, Mom and Karie

I am so happy I was able to graduate AND find a job!!! I don't know many people who were able to find a job right after graduation, and especially starting in January for a teaching job as in my case. I am so blessed and lucky to have a reliable job in my field and at an age that I was able to choose. I am so excited to meet all of my students next Monday, but it hasn't really hit me so far that I start in 5 days.... Ahhh!!

Can't wait to go from this: 

Classes and papers every week, to........

Having my own classroom to decorate and organize!!! I have a gift card to the Parent Teacher store that is literally burning a hole in my pocket. I can't wait to buy lots of fun things for my classroom!

2010 has been a packed and fun year. I can't wait to see what all 2011 brings and how different it's going to be having a full-time job. 

I can't wait to bring in the new year with lots of drinks, dancing and some champagne toasting!

I hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Years!
