A Year in Structured Review

I borrowed this from Slynnro, who's waaayyyy more interesting, but I need to get back into the swing of blogging. What better way?

1. What did you do in 2010 that you’d never done before?
I had a homecoming with my Soldier. He was gone for 15 months, he came home in March!

I got my passport!

I got married!

I flew on an Airplane for the first time.

I went to Ireland!

I went on my first boat/cruise ship as well and saw my first Major League Baseball game.

I spent an amazing weekend in Charlotte

I drove 8 hrs each direction to Philadelphia to see my favorite band play, and stopped to see the Liberty Bell on the way home.

2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I didn't make any. My NYE was horrific and I actually lost friends over it.

HOWEVER, this year I am making one. I would like to learn to knit. My Mom taught me to crochet when I was really little, but knitting is a whole new ballgame! I already bought a pair of needles and have practiced. wooo?

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
My Sister-In-Law had a gorgeous little blue-eyed girl!

4. Did anyone close to you die?

Yes, Hawk's Aunt who we were both very close to. He couldn't come home for the funeral :(

Less stress

More time with my Dad, my brother and my step-daughter
Good books!

7. What dates from 2010 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
The date in March when my (then) Fiance came home from the war!

June 9th, we went to see the Tall Ships
which I've always been fascinated with.
My wedding day, the day we flew to Ireland, November 9th, we went on my fave road trip yet.

2010 was a wonderful year

My childhood best friend, who continues to make the worst decisions possible for herself and her sons. Her fiance.
(yeah they wrecked NYE)

(a) happier or sadder?
(b) thinner or fatter?
