So stoked for this new "Hot Spot" blue nail polish.....

2010 Recap

January...
I was reintroduced to the joys of thrifting, got cabin-fever due to the snow (ice) and wished Tina & Latoya a happy birthday & went to Charlotte to celebrate.

February...
I dreamed of summertime as we got more snow/ice, saw the after effects of someone stealing copper from the empty house next door and wished my brother, Allen, a happy birthday.

March...
I stepped foot inside David's Bridal for the first time (bridesmaid), had to sit my mom down for a talkin-to for not calling the police after an elderly guy hit her car, participated in a walk for breast cancer awareness, and waited for Jaben to decide that he was ready to enter this world.

April...
I went through the ordeal of having work done on the house, was woken up by a text message at 5 in the morning announcing the birth of Jaben, wished my childhood friend, Marilyn, a happy birthday, and congratulated Orlando & Ana on the new baby & wished them a happy anniversary. 

May...
I wished my mom a Happy Mother's Day, visited Marazick Park for the 1st time in a couple of years, witnessed the dedication of Jaben, cruised to Pawleys Island, SC for Memorial Day Weekend, and started my new job.

June...
I wished my sister, Toby, & her daughter a happy birthday and visited Lu Mil vineyard, the site of Kevin & Latoya's wedding (wine-tasting, YES!)

July...
I celebrated my birthday with carrot cake & a weekend of doing nothing (YES!), said goodbye to Orlando as he left for Afghanistan, convoyed onto Ft Bragg to watch fireworks, and shut down my friend at the thought that I should get a tattoo for my birthday (Hi, have we met?!?!).

August...
I put together back-to-school bags, wished Willy and Ana happy birthday, took random candid pictures of just about everyone, overslept for the SOCK SALE but still made it and listened to my 4yr old niece describe her epic 1st Zoo adventure (about 100 times).

September...
I volunteered for the International Folk Festival, celebrated Latoya's upcoming wedding with a bridal shower & bachelorette party, wished my mom a happy birthday and became a totally fan of BMX Vert.

October...
I got dolled-up with my fellow bridesmaids for the wedding (10/10/10), headed to my alma mater UNCP for homecoming, and went to Myrtle Beach, SC for a self-invented holiday.

November...
I went to my sister's for Thanksgiving (She cooked for the family for the 1st time), enjoyed the changing of the leaves for the 1st time, wished my brother, J, a happy birthday and went to Hotdogs & S'mores (A lot of 1st this month).

December...
I went to the Pinehurst Resort for the company Christmas party, woke up extra early for the SOCK SALE, hide medicine into Jade's food, made some childhood favorites, had an almost white Christmas and realized just how great the people in my life are.
