2010 in Review

I borrowed this from Stefanie, I thought it was a good survey, kind of sums up the whole year of here goes!!

1. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before?:
Went to Maui, somewhere I had never been, and went on a submarine ride
Spent each other's birthday's together, first time EVER, he left for Oklahoma right before my birthday when we were dating, and we started dating after his birthday.
Celebrating 1 year of marriage, in the same place.
Had our first Thanksgiving together(in the same place, last Thanksgiving we were on opposite sides of the country, sorda - he was in Hawaii, I was in Georgia)
I made my first Ham and Cornish Hen for Christmas, and we spent Christmas in the same place, again, which if you're a military family, you know it is quite rare to spend multiple holidays/special occasions together.

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?:
I didn't make any last year, and didn't this year...

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
Airplanes by B.o.B. 
"Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now 

(wish right now, wish right now)"

Dear John by Taylor Swift
"Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone
Don't you think I was too young to be messed with
The girl in the dress cried the whole way home
I see it all now that you're gone
Don't you think I was too young to be messed with
The girl in the dress wrote you a song
You should've known
You should've known
Don't you think I was too young
You should've known"

Firework by Katy Perry
"Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y
Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gunna leave 'em goin "Oh, oh, oh!"
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon"
