A Reflection on 2010...

 So two days ago I was listening to the Dave Ryan in the Morning Show, as I typically do.  Since it was the first show since New Years, they came up with a list that each member of the show answered.  They posted the list of questions online and I decided that there’s no better way to start a new year and new adventures than by reflecting on the previous.  So here it is, friends!

What is my favorite:
Day?  My wedding day of course  :)

Adventure?  Four-wheeling in the Black Hills…

Book?  “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” (mainly because I finally finished the series)

Event?  Wedding again… I mean how can you really beat that?

Exercise?  Running, mainly because I never thought that I would enjoy it or be able to do it

Experience?  Getting engaged and marrying the Hubz

Hobby?  Reading

Idea?  That I can do anything

Lesson?  If I want to be a better person, a better wife and a better friend I need to be less selfish

Love?  The Hubz  :)  and his sweet smile

Meal?  Four course dinner with wine at Grecco’s on the St. Croix. Oh man… I’m salivating just thinking about it

Memory?  Confessing my love to the Hubz in front of all of our family and friends

Movie?  “Julie and Julia”

Song?  “Dancing in the Minefields” by Andrew Peterson. (can you tell I’m a newlywed?)

TV Show?  “Chuck” when I’m snuggling with the Hubz.  “Law and Order: SVU” with Ahna or when I’m sick in bed.

The best thing that happened to me in 2010 was...  I married my best friend!

The worst thing that happened to me in 2010 was...  I gave up on myself one too many times.

Name three likes:  Avocadoes, Ingrid Michaelson, yoga

Name three dislikes:  Being broke, having a messy house, the Minnesota cold

What did I do for myself this year?  I realized that I deserve the best I can give myself

What did I do against myself this year?  I didn’t give myself the best I can have

If I could change one thing about myself, what would it be?  That I would be more confident… but I’ll get there

If I could change one thing about my life, what would it be?  My own house would be nice

If I could change one thing about the world, what would it be?  I wish the world knew Jesus

What are three things I've changed or done differently this year?  Believed in myself, went to bed earlier, followed more TV shows

What are three things I was reluctant to do, but did them anyway?  Ran a 5k, stood up for myself, settled in an apartment I wasn’t in love with

What are three things I was reluctant to do, but want to do this coming year?  Adapt a complete health and wellness lifestyle, become a blogger (oh hey, already started that!), become a runner
