1-1-11 or Happy New Year…

We welcomed in the New Year Texas styled… we had a plate of homemade tamales (the ones we made), black eyed peas with jalapenos and homemade cornbread… and all I can say is mmmmmm mmmmmmm good! We even chased it down with a bit of bubbly…

2011 foodSo out with 2010 and welcome to 2011. The year 2010 was an interesting year with the changes in my job and the realizations that we were ready to depart the place we called home for the last 25 years. The good news for us in 2010 was that the stock market rebounded and empowered us to be able to retire when we had hoped for in March 2011.  So no changes to our retirement date were made which makes us really happy and we are enjoying the fact that 2011 is finally here.

I never have had much luck making New Year’s resolutions… only made one in my life that I was able to stick to.  What was it – you may ask? To Never Make Another New Year’s Resolution!!! I will stick to this resolution for 2011 as well.

Now that we made it to the year 2011 we are going to have a very busy time as we find our future home on wheels…

Hope that everyone out there in blog land will have a great 2011!
