A Look Back at 2010

What a year we have had!! I know it is cliche to say that time really flies, but seriously, it FLEW by this year! Here is a short recap of the Baileys' 2010:
  • January: We got Sonny on January 2nd! Later that week, it SNOWED, I turned 26, and Alabama won the National Championship! I hosted a joint bday/football party despite the icy conditions!
  • February: Forrest and I traveled to Costa Rica with CMMA (Christian Medical Ministries of Alabama) and the dental school. I pulled a tooth! Forrest had a great time serving others and the Lord with his talents! ALSO there was an earthquake while we were there but luckily no one was hurt.
  • March: Forrest and I participated in the Red Cross HEROES program and were able to help raise over $43,000 for our local red cross!
  • April: We went with Justin and Farrah to cheer on the Tide at A-Day. Then we went home to the Humane Society of Etowah County's annual charity auction and we went home with Ruffles!!
  • May: I started the blog!!! Forrest also completed his 2nd year of dental school. 2 down, 2 to go!
  • June: We celebrated our 1st anniversary with a trip to ATL. Our car was wrecked by a valet on the first night, but we had a great time nonetheless! We also celebrated Forrest's cousin Leslie's wedding the next day! We also got to spend a quick weekend at the beach, despite the oil spill.
  • July: We went to CA to celebrate our anniversary. We were there for a week and saw some great friends and great sights! We also celebrated Sonny's 1st bday and officially adopted Ruffles. Forrest also bought me a piano!
  • August: Back to school for Forrest! I went to Tuscaloosa to RUSH WEEK with my girlfriends Deborah and Randi. It was great to have the gang together! We also finished our living room and I was able to host book club.
  • September: Bama football was back! We went to every home game this season and in Sept we went with Justin and Farrah to the Duke game in NC! We also tried our hand at SCUBA!
  • October: More football for the Baileys! We stayed in Gatlinburg and went to the UA v. TN game in Knoxville. We also met Angie Harmon from Law and Order! Ruffles was in the Howl-o-Weenie parade and we carved our first pumpkin!
  • November: Again, we were rolling with the Tide. We went with Justin and Farrah to NOLA for the Bama LSU game. We met Anderson Cooper and saw the Hoff! We also had a wonderful Thanksgiving and we hosted and after Thanksgiving dinner for our friends.
  • December: Forrest turned 26!! I went to the Biltmore with Deborah. We also went to the Santa Claus dance and Forrest was inducted as a new Santa. We had a WHITE Christmas and celebrated with great family and friends and lots of food and presents. We also went to Orlando for New Years with Justin and Farrah to see the Tide destroy Michigan State in the Capital One Bowl!
Wow--what a fun year! We are so thankful for all of the opportunities that we had this year. I can't wait to see what 2011 has in store for us!
