Year in Review 2010

Well the time has come to do the standard year in review post. Despite a few challenges along the way 2010 definitely shaped up to be one of my best years to date by far. It wasn't all sunshine and roses but the ups definitely outnumbered and outweighed the downs. I must admit I'm a little sad to see this year end, I remember on NYE last year being so excited it was finally the year that I would be getting married but I know there are so many more exciting adventures in store for the next year, 2010 will always hold a special place in my heart.

Here's a little look back:

January-- Rang in the New Year with my now husband. Kristian went on his Bachelor Party trip. My company moved and I got my own office.

February- The D.C. area got hit with a massive snowstorm that left us housebound for a week. We celebrated our Engagiversary and I made Kristian contribute a post on the blog! I went down to ECU and got to see some of my favorite girls for our sorority's anniversary celebration.

March- I had the first of my two wedding showers and my bachelorette party in Raleigh.

April- Celebrated Easter with my in-laws. Went to Charlotte, NC to celebrate the baby shower of a very dear friend and got to meet another great friend.  I also had the second of my two wedding showers.

May- Well May was not only hands down the best month of the year for me but also the best month of my life so far. So many amazing, wonderful things happened. I said goodbye to my 20's and celebrated my 30th birthday. We welcomed our turtle Wedette into our home. Oh yeah I also went ahead and got MARRIED!! Followed by an incredible honeymoon to St. Lucia with my new husband.

June- We received our wedding photos back and I started recapping the wedding and honeymoon. I also did the post wedding chop. Umm I didn't realize until just now that it's been 6 months since I cut my hair! No wonder it's gotten so long and annoying.  Guess it's time for another trim!!

July- We celebrated the 4th of July at my in-laws beach house. We decided to sell our condo. We're still waiting for it to sell!

August- We took a fun day trip to the zoo. I attended my friend Kelli's baby shower. We celebrated our 2 year dating anniversary.

Sept- I decided to change my blog name. Our colleges played each other and my friend Kelli welcomed her son into the world.

Oct- We celebrated Kristian's birthday and took a weekend trip to OBX

Nov-Our turtle Herpe made a reappearance. Kristian went bear hunting! We celebrated Thanksgiving with my in-laws.

Dec- My mom's cat that had been missing for two months was found! Kristian got an awesome new job! I had a fun girls weekend with my mom. Had a wonderful Christmas with both of our families.

It's times like this when I'm so glad that I keep a blog. Going back through each month I was reminded of so many things that happened this year that I had already forgotten about. It really is a great way to record memories and have something to look back on, especially during such a huge event like planning my wedding.

I hope that everyone has a safe and happy New Year's Eve!

Sounds like you had an overall great year! 2010 has by far been the best year of my life, and I'm also a bit sad to see it end. I'm looking forward to the new year, though, and to seeing what's in store for us.
