Survey: 2010 In Review

This I'm stealing this from my friend...she's done it several years in a row so I'm going to join in this year. Kind of sums up the past year and lets you see, overall, how great (or not so great) it was. Goodbye 2010! You've been great (for the most part) and I KNOW I'll never forget a single minute...

1. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before? Got pregnant (and all the fun new first that go with that), swam in the ocean, became a step-mom
2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year? I don't think I kept my resolution from last year but I don't remember exactly what it was either. This year my new year's resolution is to become a MILF - Hahaha!!
3. Did anyone close to you give birth? Yep, my sister-in-law had my newest little nephew, and one of my very best friends had her little boy both in November.
4. Did anyone close to you die? Thank goodness, no.
5. What countries did you visit? Got close to Mexico but didn't visit any other countries.
6. What would you like to have in 2011 that you lacked in 2010? My baby boy to finally be here, an "adult" float trip/mini-vacation this summer, a beach body!
7. What dates from 2010 will remain etched upon your memory, and why? February 14th - wonderful Valentine's Day and I got a dozen peaches - LOL, May 24th - day I found out I was pregnant, June 11th - first time I heard my baby's heartbeat, June 20th - day Jason proposed, July 17th - day I married my best friend, August 16th - bad day, don't want to remember but always will, October 2nd - my little brother got married
8. What was your biggest achievement of the year? Growing a human life - doesn't get much bigger than that!
9. What was your biggest failure? Letting someone I love more than anything in the world feel insecure and unsure of how I felt about them
10. Did you suffer illness or injury? Fortunately, No! :) Not sure I even went to the doctor other than for prenatal stuff. Did have a stint of poison ivy at our house but that's about it.
11. What was the best thing you bought? Baby crib and the awesome baby bedding I wanted
12. Whose behavior merited celebration? My friend Lindsey - she's been an amazing friend this year, always there for me and when my sister couldn't be there to stand beside me at my wedding, she made sure she could be there so she could stand in her place. :)
13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed? Someone whom I thought was my friend, whom Jason and I had spent a lot of time with. Sad when you find out the reason someone's being so nice is because they want something of yours or that they feel guilty.
14. Where did most of your money go? Kyoto...WAY TOO MUCH Sushi! HAHA
15. What did you get really, really, really excited about? Becoming a mom and marrying Jason
16. What song will always remind you of 2010? Stuck Like Glue - Sugarland and If He's Anything Like Me - Brad Paisley
17. Compared to this time last year are you: a) happier or sadder? b) thinner or fatter? c) richer or poorer? Not sadder but I was pretty darned happy last year so its hard to say I'm happier. Definitely FATTER, but I'm blaming it ALL on the little man :). And actually richer, Jason has a better clientele than last year and we are actually able to save some money...too bad that's about to change in a couple weeks.
18. What do you wish you'd done more of? Wish I would have been more productive and been less lazy - that will probably always be a wish of mine HAHA And I wish I could have/would have enjoyed this pregnancy more.
19. What do you wish you'd done less of? Being insecure.
20. How did you spend Christmas? Jason and I opened our gifts to each other on Tuesday night the 21st, went to my parents on Friday (24th) and had Christmas with our whole fam, hung out with my parents Saturday and went to the movies and ate chinese food, then had Christmas with Jake on the following Wednesday the 29th.
21. Did you fall in love in 2010? Fell MORE in love and found out a new love (although I haven't officially met him yet)
22. What was your favorite TV program? Sons of Anarchy and Biggest Loser
23. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year? I don't hate anyone, but there's a new person on my "very seriously dislike" list that wasn't on there before.
24. What was the best book you read? My MacKayla Lane novels my hubby got me for Christmas, I'm already on the last one!
25. What was your greatest musical discovery? Karaoke at The Red Balloon :)

30. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying? There's only one thing that would have made it more satisfying and that was beyond my control - other than the one thing, I don't think someone could have a more satisfying year :)
31. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2010? Maternity clothes: lots of dresses, leggings, boots, and changing my hair do a TON this year.

As Seen on Pinterest: Paper Towel Curls

I pinned this and put it under "Must Try" because seriously -- her hair looks SO CUTE and I want my hair to look like this:

And I can TOTALLY do that ya'll. So, I tried it.

Step 1: Start with wet hair. Me post workout shower [disregard the red face -- I look like my blood pressure is that of a 300 lb man in his late 40s really high after a run] with wet hair.

Step 2: Put mousse in hair, tie hair up in paper towel "curlers" rrrrreeeeaaaalllly tight. Sleep uncomfortably on back all night because said paper towel curlers are too tight. Wake up the next morning really excited -- you gonna be FABULOUS dah-ling [or so I thought].
I know I don't look excited but this is at 5:30 in the morning -- this is as excited as it gets.
Step 3: Take "curlers" out of hair and FREAK THE F OUT when you realize the curls are WWW***AAA***YYY too tight... worked a little TOO well. Maybe I need to just run my fingers through it. Yeah, I'll run my fingers …

Jason's Graduation: Part II

Dr. Allen, DC
4/5 of our marriage has been spent working towards this day. To say we are excited would be a great understatement. I can't even put into words how excited/happy/scared/proud/relieved, etc, etc, etc we are. There just are no words. Jason has worked tirelessly towards this goal. Countless hours of studying. Sacrificing time with me and the kids. And all the work he put in advertising and recruiting patients into the clinic. Personal training early mornings and late nights to help makes ends meet.  And I think of all the sacrifice we've made as a family. Living in a townhouse and then a tiny apartment. I've been the primary provider and a mostly single parent during some stages. And a constant cheerleader and standing behind pushing. We've both been pushing uphill for what seems like forever towards this goal. And we've made it. Not to discount his hard work, because he was the one who really accomplished this goal but I like to think we accomplished this …

Ramblings of a Panic Attack

I’m having a panic attack. These stupid meds are killing me. I hate them. Stick with it, stick with it, stick with it. I know it’s the meds. I just have to get through this and relax for a couple weeks. I hate this job. It’s not even that bad it’s just HORRIBLY boring. I don’t want to do this every day. I appreciate learning the process and gaining experience but it’s not what I like to do. I don’t even like accounting that much to begin with but there are aspects I like and I know it. The pay is killing me. I need money. I can’t continue to be completely broke before the first week of the month is over. Collections calls ringing all day. I’m applying to jobs like crazy. I’m trying so hard. I’m just going to keep pushing forward. Keep. Pushing. Forward. I hate that I wanted a life with Jason. That I was too blind to realize what he was. That I was ok with him even from the very beginning when I knew better. Why didn’t I want better things for myself? Seeing him makes me want to vomit.…
