2010 Year in Review

I am not going to be able to do any blogging for the next couple of days, so I thought I would do my year end post today at work.  It's maintenance week here, and I don't have anything better to do!  Warning: Lots of pictures ahead.  :)

So here is a list of the main things that I did during this year (in mostly chronological order):
- I bought a house.  (and emptied my savings account...)
- Went to Oaklawn twice.  pretty sure I didn't win, but the point is to have fun right?  See the man in the purple had and fur coat that Lyndsey is pointing at?  I think he looks like Flava Flav. haha.  The people watching there is the best.
- Went to Guadalajara for 9 days with the IBUS class.  Got sick in Mexico- who hasn't??  This picture is of me and a giant agave plant, which is used to make tequila.  This was my favorite field trip.  After this, we went to the Jose Cuervo plant.  It was awesome.
- Joined jasmere- which I love and I am a "SuperFan."
- Baby brother was born.
- Went to a few Travelers baseball games.  Got several sunburns.  :)
- Went to 2 Razorback football games.  Woo pig!  Wish I was going to the Sugar Bowl to cheer them on!
- Donated my hair for the 3rd time.  This is an after pic.  See how long it is in the Mexico picture??
- Went to the Greek Food Festival.  Bought more cookies and baklava than I should have.
- Liza and Lisa threw me a house warming party.
- Went to Elizabeth and Adam's wedding.  This is me and Desi at the wedding.  p.s. It was hot!!
- Went to Memphis with some friends.
- Went to the Lake of the Ozarks with the family.
- Started volunteering with Stone Soup.
- Started doing the EDGE for the 5th and 6th graders on Wednesday nights at church.  Here we are playing a game.
- Went to Nashville for the first time for Laura's bachelorette party.
- Went to Kansas City and stayed at the Great Wolf Lodge.
- Had an overhead light put in my living room.  yay!  we can finally see!
- Went to Laura and Hal's wedding.
- Did Race for the Cure with my mom, who is a survivor!
- Hosted the Sunday School class Halloween Party at my house.  Here we have a nerd, Little Red Riding Hood, and a pirate.
- Went to Branson with some of the girls.
- Went to see Wicked!
- Started job hunting.
- Went to that dreaded speed mixer.
- Went to the Christmas Frolic at the Historic Arkansas Museum.
- Attended my first ever ugly sweater party.
- Was Mother Mary in the Living Nativity.
- I graduated!
- Got my sorority pin made into a ring- almost 4 years later.  :)
- Went to Mississippi to see some relatives.

That's my year in review.  I am looking forward to the good things to come in 2011!

  1. Seems like quite the year. Thanks for putting me on your blogroll, too!

    I must say that when I read about the baklava, my mouth watered. There's a diner near where I work that serves baklava cheesecake. Holy cow-- it's good. :-)

    Wasn't Wicked awesome??

    Happy New Year!
