I have started about 5 new blog posts over the last while, and I never seem to finish them. Dude and I were talking about it last night, and I really do want to get back into it. Maybe I'll finish some of those that I started, but, for now, here is a "quick hit" update:
  • Life is FANTASTIC for me these days.
  • I am totally in love with Dude. Best feeling in the world!
  • Family is great - We are loving getting to know the Prince. He is such a smiley little man and quite a snuggler.
  • Friends are great - I don't get to see my girls as much as I would like, but we got together recently, and, as always, it was as if not a day had passed since we last saw each other. We have a girls' weekend coming up, so I can't wait for the hilarity that will surely ensue.
  • Glad college football is over for now. It was a fairly rough year for my Tigers, but this recruiting class (Signing Day is February 3rd!) is looking STELLAR!! I have no comment on the Heisman Trophy or the National Championship...not a nice comment anyway.
  • New interest #1: Tennis! Who knew?! Dude gave me a tennis racket for Christmas, and he's also given me my first lesson which was really fun. I really got into watching Melanie Oudin during the 2009 US Open, and I've been watching the Australian Open too. I feel like I learn something new every time I watch.
  • New interest #2: I've really gotten into the NFL and I'm becoming a legitimate Falcons fan. Woo hoo!
  • Work is great - I'm busier than ever, but that's a good thing. I am so thankful for my job and that I actually enjoy it (most of the time).
  • Looking forward to some great trips coming up:
  • Chicago in April - CAN'T WAIT to see my friends there (especially Shiksa and Dr. Bop) and introduce them to Dude! Hope it won't be too cold, but I can handle it! ;) Hopefully we'll catch a Cubs game while we're there.
  • CHINA in May - This will be the farthest I've EVER been from home. I'm a little anxious about it, because I don't speak a LICK of Chinese. The World Expo will just be opening when I'm there, so I'm really looking forward to checking that out. As I understand it, it will be like Epcot only bigger and more elaborate!
  • Boston in June - Another place I've never been, and the homeland of my beloved New Kids on the Block. Dude and I are planning to catch a Red Sox game while we're there so that should be awesome. Wrigley AND Fenway in one season?! COME OONNN!
So there's my nutshell update. I felt like it would be weird to just jump back in and start blogging about my random thoughts and ramblings without giving you an update first. There have been some things that have made me think, "Oh, I have got to write about that," but I needed to get this one in first. Hopefully I can get the blog juices flowing again.

China is for work. It is pretty much the same trip I took to Argentina a couple of years ago, just to a different place.
