twenty-ten, part 3

There's a reason I blog about Ike and Y more than I do myself: they are much more interesting than I am. But, as, promised, here is 2010 recap part 3: my year.

In January I started this blog because I could not keep my whining to myself for another second.

In February, I went on my first business trip by myself and spent far too long sitting in the windowsill taking pictures (I was in New Orleans. It wasn't that exciting).

In March I sang karaoke for the first time ever at the First Annual Carol Convention. My song of choice - Fancy by Reba McEntire - a guilty pleasure song that's on my karaoke bucket list. Also on my list: Kiss From a Rose by Seal. Seriously. How can you not be a fan of that song?

In April I ran my first (and only, so far) 5k. Maybe at the end of this year I'll report back on my first half marathon. (Highly unlikely.)

I met a super famous celebrity at my gym, and channeled my inner sixteen year old and saw Taylor Swift.

I finished three semesters of grad school this semester, and made tons of friends.

I went to DC, visited Julia Child's kitchen, and left still hating to cook. (Sorry, Y)

In September, I joined Miss B's Souvenir Foto School.

I also took a spontaneous trip to Chicago with two friends, the kind of friends who will gladly lay on the ground with you for a photo op.

I drove to Texas to drink tea with some American Girl dolls (and my sister and nieces, I guess), and drove to Texas again to laugh my face off at Aziz Ansari.

I got a new toy: a camera. My first three pictures:

Y and I took a trip to Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

And I fulfilled my goal of getting Ike to wear a sparkly New Year's Eve hat.

(Sort of.)

Also, I read these books.

(Does anyone else use Goodreads?)

Here's to making 2011 much more noteworthy (and photogenic)!


  1. First, I'm so glad you stumbled upon my blog! Everyones experience is different with the medical spouse stuff but I try to tell it as it is. (Apparently that trait makes me weird according my friend this past week.)

    Second, I told J that you found and commented on my blog and he laughed for a good minute which is a huge success since he had just gotten off a crappy shift.

    Third, on my own super creepy note, I had a class with you and Yoni in college. I think it was American Judaism with Isbell. Also, Bekah Goldman has a blog if you were friends with her.

    Yeah, so now you're not the only one with super creepy observations.


    Look forward to reading more and if you ever have questions or anything, feel free to e-mail!

  2. I love the sparkly hat on Ike! Looks like it was a super fun year! I hope 2011 tops it. :)

  3. I just signed up for GoodReads and added you. I love this!
