2009: Year in Review

Instead of posting regularly in 2009, why not skip the whole year and write one post to sum up the entire year?

Needless to say, 2009 felt like a whirlwind. We can't believe 2010 is here already! In case you were wondering, here is what we were up to in 2009...

We worked from home when we received a foot of snow overnight:

We finished up our bathroom remodel (more pics):

We spent a fun weekend in Las Vegas (more pics):

We became "Aunt Justine and Uncle Nick" as our good friends welcomed their son:

We closed up our outside cellar entrance (more pics):

I went to Portland for the AIGA Leadership Retreat:

I played softball with my co-ed company team (not always in the rain):

We went to beautiful Colorado (more pics):

And almost immediately headed to Chicago for Lollapalooza (more pics):

We got certified as Open Water Divers:

Nick went to Los Gatos, CA for the annual carwash Enhancement Group:

We threw a crazy Halloween party (more pics):

I was promoted to Manager of Design Solutions at ExactTarget:

Posing at our holiday gift exchange and lunch.

We went to Hawaii and got Advanced Open Water certified (more pics):

We celebrated our 5th Wedding Anniversary:

We drove to North Carolina to spend Christmas with the Parsons:

What a great 2009! We're excited to see what 2010 brings.

Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on
blogs I stumbleupon every day. It will always be useful to read content from other
writers and use something from their sites.

Hey there terrific blog! Does running a blog like this require a large amount of
work? I have virtually no expertise in computer programming
however I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, should you have any ideas
or tips for new blog owners please share. I know this
is off topic but I simply had to ask. Appreciate it!

I believe everything said made a lot of sense.
However, think on this, what if you typed a
catchier post title? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added something that makes people desire more? I mean "2009: Year in Review" is kinda vanilla. You could peek at Yahoo's front page and note how they write article titles
to get people interested. You might add a related video or a pic or two to get
people interested about what you've got to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
