and finally, got engaged at Christmas!

What a wonderful year 2010 has been to me. I hope it has been as good to you as it has to me and that 2011 is even better! Tonight I am spending the final hours of 2010 with my fiance (still can't quite get used to that, think I will still call him boyfriend or maybe 'hubs-to-be') and friends. I will attempt to eat 12 grapes as the clock strikes 12 and wear red underwear (Spanish tradition). See you all in 2011!

  6. I know exactly what you mean, I try not to use 'Fiance' too often because I always feel like it comes across as showing off.
