Top 10 things I did in 2010...

I wanted to post my top 10 photos from 2010, but with my boys there was no way to narrow that down to just ten photos! So, I'm taking a different route and posting the top ten things I did in 2010. This post is all about me. Throughout the year I have already shared nearly every milestone I've shared with Blake and Kevin.

Instead of posting these ten in order of importance, I'm posting them chronologically...

1. In May I attended my sister Kaitlin's graduation from the University of Louisville. I am SO PROUD of her. (For her graduation gift, I took her to see Wicked the next week. I so enjoyed spending time with her.)2. This summer, we took a few days to head up to Cincinnati. It was fun seeing a Reds game and spending time at Great Wolf Lodge. All four of us loved the indoor waterpark. I could have spent more time out by the pool though - that was so nice! (And with our boys getting older, that means they are offering to take photos of me and Tom together now.) 3. In September, thanks to my sister Kaitlin, Tom and I attended a concert in Cincinnati. I got to see three of my favorite bands perform in one show - The Whigs, The Black Keys and Kings of Leon. I had a lot more fun than Tom did, but I'm so glad he went with me.
4. At the end of September, I had thyroid surgery. About 3/4 of my thyroid was removed. I am amazed by what a positive experience that has turned out to be. I'm also thankful I had such a great surgeon.5. In October, I went out with Kaitlin once again. This time she went with me to see Band of Horses in concert. It was wonderful! I hope in 2011 that we can find a couple things to do together again. :)6. 2011 turned into my year of the concert! The night before Thanksgiving I went to Louisville to see The Whigs play at a local bar. I was right up against the stage with my sisters Adriane, Ashley and Molly and our cousin Kimberly. What a great night. We even met the band! 7. I have always wanted to go to New York City. This year I finally got to go to celebrate my 36th birthday and my 13th anniversary with Tom. It was amazing to see Rockefeller Center at Christmastime.8. And I walked ACROSS THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE!!! (This is really something for a girl afraid of both heights and water!) I saw the Statue of Liberty for the first time from the bridge. I think Tom got a kick out of hearing me scream when I saw it. 9. I had lunch on my birthday at Carnegie Deli. Yes, the Reuben was worth the 30+ minute wait in line to even get inside the door. Om nom, nom...10. On my birthday, I also went to the top of the Empire State Building. I tried to talk Tom out of going. (Remember, I'm afraid of heights.) I am so glad he convinced me to go. The view was something else. It was freezing cold up there, but I didn't want to leave.

That's my year in review. 2010 is going to be hard to top!

Happy 2011!
