Stealing Tamara's Ideas Again

What the heck, I'll tell you some about me again, mainly to satisfy my ego. I stole Tamara's list, but I'm going to do in reverse order!

4 Things I'm Looking Forward to This Year

1. Moving out on our own- I can't say enough about how wonderful Tamara's parents are and have been in letting us stay here for the last half a year, but I think it's safe to say Tamara and I are eager to get our own place.
2. The second full year with the most wonderful woman in my life
3. Figuring out our future (maybe even as far as a 5- or 10-year plan)
4. Baseball season
