A Look Back At 2010

In January, I started my very first blog.  My very first post was a learning experience to say the least.  It took me a while to think of a name for my blog, but I finally came up with something perfectly fitting for me.  We shopped for antiques at the Renningers Antiques Extravaganza in Mount Dora, we celebrated National Chocolate Cake Day by making "Perfectly Chocolate" Chocolate Cake, and became addicted to old fashioned candy after a dinner out with  my parents.  We also had unseasonably cold temperatures for the Sunshine State so I wore my leather jacket with everything as I dreamt about summer.

In February, we tried out for Old Navy's Supermodelquin model search.  We didn't win, but I have some cute pics to show for it of my little superhero.  We also spent Valentine's Day weekend at the beach and my husband introduced me to the Gimlet.

In March, we celebrated my little superhero's 4th birthday in true superhero fashion.

In April, we celebrated Easter by baking and decorating cookies for my little superhero's teachers and took our annual trip to the happiest place on earth.

We started the month of May off by celebrating our 6 year wedding anniversary at our favorite restaurant and ended the month by kicking off the summer with a backyard pool party.

In June, I updated my living room with beach inspired finds.

In July, I did a lot of baking, like these cute little cupcakes and these pretzel sparklers.
We also spent some time at the beach, always a favorite in our house.

In August, I started a new position in a new school and had nothing to wear!  My little superhero also started soccer for the first time.  Our beach weekends quickly turned into soccer weekends.

In September, I finally got my new wood floors I have been dreaming about.

In October, my little superhero made halloween cupcakes all by himself!


In November, we spent Thanksgiving and a week long vacation in St. Augustine.  We fought the crowds and got some great bargains on Black Friday.


In December, we enjoyed decorating for the season with our little superhero.  He is such a big boy now that he helped us with the big tree and even decorated his very own little tree.  We attended his Christmas Pageant and went to see the beautiful light displays in Mount Dora.  We had a humongous meal at Maggianos on Christmas eve and enjoyed playing with all of the loot Santa brought our little one.  Best of all, was time spent with family and friends.

It was a great 2010 and I know 2011 will be even better!  Happy New Year to everyone and best wishes for lots of joy and happiness!

Hope your having a glorious holiday season and a wonderful ending to 2010.
