2010 in Review

I can't believe it's the last day of 2010! For some reason 2010 went by a whole lot faster than any other year I remember. Today's post is going to be more of a reflection on the year gone by. Let's start with the things I wanted to see stay in 2009, shall we?

  1. Jon and Kate: Sigh, only Jon has seemed to really fade into the background. Kate was on Dancing with the Stars, got to be thisclose to Jon Hamm-alicious at the Emmys and formed one half of the axis of evil with the #5 thing I wanted to see disappear.
  2. The war on terror: Yeah, this isn't going anywhere anytime soon, is it?
  3. Swine Flu: I have no idea, is this gone? Or controlled? I haven't seen it on the news.
  4. 80's fashion: Um considering "jeggings" are in, I'm thinking the 80's are here for a little while longer (cue that song from Dirty Dancing "Ooooh won't you stayyyyyyyy just a little bit longerrrrrrrrrrr")
  5. A certain former governor that claims global warming, you know, isn't real: Ugh....she got a book deal, a job with Fox (I'm leaving this one alone), a reality show where she hunts and camps and learns how to kill a bear with Kate Gosselin (who maybe should have dressed up like a bear in that episode? Just sayin...) and her daughter was on Dancing with the Stars. Unfortunately, unless Russia, which she can see from her house, does us a favor, we're stuck with this one.
So those were kind of a bust, huh? I'm not making a list for 2011 because it seems my list for 2010 only seemed to increase the likelihood of these things continuing. 2010 was a pretty awesome year though, even if those 5 things were in it.

Instead of writing about my favorite memories from 2010, I've decided to...well...cheat and put up a list of links to some of my favorite posts. Here goes:

Everything I know I learned from Anderson Cooper
Staycation Vacation
It's a nice day for a White wedding
If my marriage can survive...
On this day in 2008...
And then I began to sweat...
Our anniversary
The Magical World of Disney
My real life Jerry Springer experience
The most epic of fails....
I got my toes in the water...
The day I lost my Mommy card
Why would your MOM send the kids an animal carcass?
The one where I called Poison Control
Hoop Dee Doo
Our Christmas

I truly hope 2010 has been an awesome year for you, and here's to 2011 being even better! Be safe tonight!

Oh Jon and Kate - so glad that Jon has disappeared. If I saw one more Ed Hardy shirt I was going to scream
Happy New Year!

Hands down, the best "best of" list I've read so far! :) Love the J&K and Sarah Palin references. I accidentally caught part of her TLC show, and decided I'd watch for a few minutes to see what it was about. After about 10 minutes, though, I couldn't take any more animal carcasses. HA!

Happy new year!
