2010 best

Are you having a nice Holiday over there? It's been so lovely here -- could use a bit more snow, but you'll have that. Also, we've been sick: fevers, croup (really), and some other gross stuff about which you'd rather have the details, but even so: Holly Jolly All Up In Here.

It's List Time! I'm wishing I would have written this post sooner than the middle of the night whilst being sick, but I've been busy cleaning up vomit (oops!), so I do what I can.

What kind of list? Best of . . . something. Somethings. In no particular order. And likely forgetting many. Lots of Bests:

~ Vegas with friends
~ BlogHer
~ Bloggy Boot Camp
~ SocialLuxe Lounge
~ just BEING in New York City
~ Dancing Single Ladies for an audience
~ Finishing a duathlon (substitution for a tri)
~ 5K for my boy at Thanksgiving Point
~ 5K in Central Park
~ Getting to know Rex & David
What greater gift dost thou bestow,
What greater goodness can we know
Than Christlike friends, whose gentle ways
Strengthen our faith, enrich our days.

Oh gravy, I forgot about that mustache picture. It is truly the best of the decade.

Being ill over Christmas is the worst, we've had it in our house too. What a packed year you've had though! I've had fun reading your adventures, all the best for the new year to you and your family x

So, I had croup last month and my oldest had it over Christmas - love the steroid they gave her (and me the month before).

I think I need to stick by you for 2011 - you know how to have a good time!

Would give my left arm to have seen the Single Ladies dance in person. ;)
