My 2010

So I'm inspired by ebonlock's post-2010 post and I thought I'd try to sum up my own 2010.

In 2010:
Shows: I saw Avenue Q and Eddie Izzard again. Saw Kathy Griffin for the first time. I am my own sundae.

Travel: Went back to Maui with the Homer-Smith clan. This time with a tsunami scare! We went to the Mayan Riviera for our honeymoon. We went to So Cal for my Dad's wedding, my niece's wedding and for a Christmas party. And we went to Phoenix for a week to check out our cousin's new restaurant, Beckett's Table.

Politics: "Watched" the Prop 8 trial closely online. Laughed, cried and donated money to the cause. We hosted a March for Sanity/Fear party.

Fitness: Ha ha ha. I gained a lot of weight this year and have yet to lose any of it, despite trying a few different methods/activities. Looking for something that sticks....

Reading: Tried to start a classic lit book club online with some friends and failed to get anyone to actually talk about the book! Ha! I loved reading Feed by Mira Grant and the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and can't recommend either enough. I will be reading a LOT more this coming year, all YA or Middle-Grade books (I welcome any suggestions).

Writing: Joined the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. I am working on my novel adaptation of The Paranormals.

Major Purchases: Got an iPhone and I wonder how I ever lived without one. Bought a Toyota Matrix (named her Luce, aka "Crafty") when my dear old Passat was dying. Bought a TempurPedic mattress and now I can almost never sleep when I go on vacation! Got a new laptop (named her Nessie).

Major changes: Got "downsized" for the first time in my life. Moved into our house. Um... and it seems like there was something else... Oh yeah, I got married! Well, not if 7 million Californians have a say in the matter, but in my heart I am married.

Food & Drink Fun: Had dinner at Thomas Keller's Ad Hoc thanks to The Mortons. Went to Millennium followed by Bourbon & Branch for our anniversary (of dating). Tried out Singlebarrel with Jon. Was wowed by Wolfgang Puck's in the MGM Grand for my bachelorette party dinner. And of course, ate at Beckett's Table twice (YUM!)

Other: Participated in our first Shinteki Decathalon and LOVED it. Turned 40 and didn't hate it, especially since my friends threw me the most awesomely geeky costume party. Got to welcome our new nephew into the world just an hour after he was born. Threw my very first NYE party.

So welcome 2011. You have some VERY big shoes to fill!

Sounds like a busy year filled with a mix of good and bad. Congrats on both your marriage and the birth of your nephew. I hope that 2011 is wonderful to you and yours.

I didn't quite get a chance to say CONGRATULATIONS!!! to you and your new wife on getting married and your honeymoon and such. :) Stupid prop 8 - we'll knock that sucker down!

Now you are making me want to get an iPhone...

Thanks! We are fabulously happy.

And the iPhone has become my address book, dayplanner, alarm clock, kitchen timer, book, game console, radio/mp3 player, reference material, you name it! The only hard thing to swallow is the $90/month bill. But I was already paying $75/month, so it wasn't a huge leap for me.

The one upside...
...is that when Prop 8 gets dumped on the ashheap of history, we get to have another bachelorette party before the civil ceremony!

Right?

Re: The one upside...
Um... no. But I will let you come over and make us all Bunny & Birdies to drink!
