Goodbye 2009!

Wow - where did the year go? Many websites are doing Best Of's which has inspired me do a Best Memories of 2009 for our family...

We were very blessed to have lots of opportunities to travel and spend time with family and friends this year. Many of my favorite memories came from the trips we took over the last 12 months. Here are some of the highlights...

February- a chilly visit to Chicago to visit friends and family. Despite the cold weather, we had a great time in the Windy City.

March - St. Patty's Day in Dallas with the College Crew. This weekend is always hilariously random. One highlight of the trip was when we went to house party that was apparently at capacity. We were told we could come in, IF we'd stand in the corner. Turns out that was fine by us - marg machine was in the corner too =)

April - a long weekend in Atlanta with all of the Chenault clan to celebrate Lee's cousin, Amy, and Matt's wedding. It was beautifully done and such a great way to catch up with family.

June - annual Port A trip with the college girls. This trip is always amazing - I've got my countdown on for 2010.

June - a very quick trip to Colorado to celebrate my grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary. It is amazing how they have loved and supported each other for so long. They are an inspiration to all.

June - celebrating Lindsay and Reid's engagement with the Chenault's and their family friends in Cabo San Lucas. Wedding magazines, banangrams, sunny weather and chi-chis - what else could be better!

July - Lake Tahoe with the Barry's. Lake Tahoe is absolutely gorgeous and the weather is perfect. My dad arranged the trip around a celebrity golf tourney, which made for a nice mix of celebs (for me) and sports (for Lee). We saw lots of famous athletes and spent our last night there gambling with Joe Buck, a sports announcer for Fox. The other exciting part of the trip is we learned our friends, the Lukefahr's welcomed their first baby to the world that weekend.

August - celebrating my brother's 21st birthday in Las Vegas. Unfortunately Lee had to sit this one out because of work, but the Barry's had a great time. We played blackjack at some of the shadier casinos with cheaper tables since Chris and I are newbies. Chris had a great time, and I became addicted to the eBay slots game. =)

September - long Labor Day weekend in

Dallas. We had a great time watching the first UT football game and having a rowdy game night! -->

November - Visit to my bff in NYC. This was another quick trip, but we saw lots of the City. Lee and I fell in love with Brooklyn and all its hipsterness. We had a great time catching up with Katie. She is not only the perfect hostess but kept us laughing 24/7.
