20 things about 2010

Since we are sick in our house...Michael has the flu, Caleb is getting over 2 ear infections (and I think the flu), and I sound like a man when I talk, we didn't have a very exciting New Year. I thought this might be fun! :) Happy New Year! I know 2011 will be one of the best yet!!!

1. What did you do in 2010 that you had never done before?

Had my first and my last chilidrens birthday party at our house, and got myself to the airport, parked, and to my plane by myself and on time (this might not sound like a big deal, but believe me, this is HUGE!!!). We also went to our first UGA game with a child -- SO MUCH FUN! I also earned a post-graduate degree while being a mommy and wife! :)

2. Did you keep your New Year's Resolutions and will you make more for next year?
Yea, I don't remember if I made one. If I did, I don't think I kept it. I am making one this year...and it kinda goes into 2012, too. My goal, after Abby is born, is to a) loose ALL my Caleb/Abby baby weight, b) work out on a routine, and c) run/walk the Peachtree in 2012...y'all help hold me accountable!

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
I had several friends and family members have babies...but no one in our immediate families -- not sure if Grant and Morgann read this, but this is your HINT!!! Grant is Michael's brother and we REALLY want them to have a baby soon!! :) This year will be different...a few of my very good friends are pregnant, and so am I!!! YAY!

4. Did anyone close to you die?
No...thank goodness

5. What places have you visited?
I went to Philadelphia, PA (remember the airport story in #1?), but as a family we went to Jekyll Island, Panama City, and Athens, GA.

6. What would you like to have in 2011 that you lacked in 2010?
I would like to have more time with my husband and family. We are constantly "going" that we rarely stop and just hang out the 3 1/2 of us. That is going to be one of my priorities in 2011.

7. What date from 2010 will remain etched in your memory and why?

July 25, 2011 - the day we found out baby #2 was on the way
November 3, 2011 - the day we found out that baby # 2 was a GIRL!

8. What was your biggest achievement this year?
Being the pregnant mother of a 2 year old. He is a great toddler (as great as they can be), but this pregnancy has NOT been easy. We are almost to 27 weeks, and for that I am proud of myself.

I also can not forget earning my Master's Degree!!!!!!

9. Did you suffer illness or injury?
Until last week, my answer would have been no, but sadly now, it is yes. The horrible flu bug has attacked my home and my family. It has been a rough 10 days around here. Other than that, we have been pretty healthy....ear infections, 1 stomach bug, and morning (all day) sickness is all I can report. :)

10. What was the best thing you bought?

Caleb's big boy furniture/room. He LOVES it, and that makes me happy! There will be a post on that soon...once we are well and it is finished. :)

11. Where did most of your money go?

do I really have to answer that?!?!

12. What song will always remind you of 2010?
Dora the Explorer...sad...I know.

13. What do you wish you would have done more of?
spend more QUALITY time with Michael and Caleb

14. What do you wish you would have done less of?
worrying about people/things that don't matter.

15. What was your favorite TV program?
Hmmm...I love Gossip Girl, Friday Night Lights and Grey's. Michael is loving Man vs. Food, and I have to say I am starting to enjoy it myself (please note the spending more time with him resolution!:) )

16. What was the best book you read this year?I
This was the year of books for me....I read and read and read this summer. I would have to say that Something Borrowed and Something Blue are up there, as are Dear John, and The Last Song.

17. What was your favorite film of the year?

I loved Dear John,. It was great, and even better if you read the book!

18. What did you do on your birthday and how old were you?
I don't remember; is that bad? I am sure we went out to dinner with my family...oh yes, now I remember...we went to Texas Roadhouse and my family thought it was hilarious to make me ride that d*%n horse. Funny people, I tell ya!

19. What political issue stirred you the most?
I am not a person who watches Fox News, but I do like to stay informed. I would have to say Healthcare got to me the most. Now, if you ask my husband you will get an earful. I don't recommend it. :)

20. Who was the best new person you met?
I think all of my friends news babies -- they are such a blessing, and it is so amazing to see all of them as mothers!
