All the TV channels over the next few days will be playing their lists of the "Top Craziest/ Wackiest/ Scariest/ Memorable Moments of 2010". Which makes me think, what would be on my "Top Memories" list? Just thinking about how much I have done this year makes my head spin. I don't think I have ever done so much in 365 days. Although it was sometimes stressful, and I remember just wanting a weekend to relax, I wouldn't trade any of it for the world.
So here is my Top 12 Memories from 2010! (Why 12? because it is my list and I have more than 10 :o) )
Lindsay and I then realized that our kitchen was missing a chalkboard. So again, we braved the elements in my little Honda Civic to make our way to Home Depot for chalkboard paint. Best cabin-fever decision ever made.
Derby Party and Preakness: Two of my favorite weekends by far! We threw a Kentucky Derby party. Complete with crazy hats, mint juleps, corn hole and many many games of beer pong. I don't think we even saw the race. I know my roommate didn't. (Love you!) :o)
Preakness was great. My first time ever going. I had no idea what to expect but I definitely had an amazing time. Day full of laughing, drinking, acting like horses... can't get much better than that.
Boston with Teeny: This was my first big conference trip I had taken since starting my job. I was so excited to go 1) because I had never been to Boston before and 2) because I was going with Krissy! We had such an amazing time. Our first day there we walked the entire freedom trail. Round trip 5 miles. Plus 294 steps to the top of the Bunker Hill monument. It was so worth it. We saw all of the historical monuments, where the Boston Massacre took place, Paul Revere's house, and most importantly Sam Adam's gravestone. That was all in the first day. We did a ghost tour, saw Harvard University and did a tour of the Sam Adam's Brewery. Needless to say, we got everything out of Boston that we possibly could have.
Tour of the White House: Growing up in the suburbs of DC, I have always wanted to do two things: Go to the top of the Washington Monument (see bucket list) and tour the White House. I got to tour the White House this year at Christmas time. So beautiful! Every room was decorated differently depending on the theme. Definitely something I will always remember. Thanks Jake! :o)
What were your favorite memories of this year?
