FMM: Top 10 of 2010

Good Morning Friends!!!  I hope you are all doing well this fine Monday morning.  It finally feels like fall here in Texas - so what if "fall" is a brisk 50 degrees in the morning and 80 by noon, we'll take it!

My sweet friend Kenlie from All the Weigh has been hosting Friend Makin' Monday for a few months and asked me to host this week.  Just to give a little history, when I first began blogging, I found a little Monday fun through this bloggy carnival and met many of my bloggy friends through it.  I haven't participated as much any more (life gets in the way) but thought it would be fun to host.  Friend Makin Monday is a great way to visit new blogs, get to know your friends better  and make new ones along the way.  If you'd like to participate, simply answer the question below and add you post to the linky below.  Make sure you visit atleast 5 other blogs and leave comments...we all love the comment love!!!  So, thank you Kenlie for asking...and now, on to the question!

November is a great month to reflect on all we have to be Thankful for.  First to come to mind are my Faith, my Family, my Friends, our Health, and our Happiness.  I wanted to take it one step further and reflect on what I have been blessed with this year......what is it that I am specifically thankful for in 2010?

What is you Top 10 of 2010?

10.  Losing 56 pounds.  Yes I did.  

9.  Summering in Illinois.  Playing in tunnels with my kids, exhausting ourselves in Chicago, swimming all was wonderful.

8.  Skinny Girl Margaritas.  (yes, I am thankful to have my beloved margarita at a third of the calories - don't judge here if you want the recipe)

7.  Dedicating Ian to God.
6.  Pursuing my own company, Darling Memories.  Just a little business, but it's mine.  I have a very exciting Christmas Idea!!  Hop on over when you have some time!!

Darling Memories

5.  Running my first half-marathon. in 6 days...yikes!
4.  Reading 100 books as a family this summer.  It kick-started something with my family - we always have a book close by.

3. Becoming PTA President of my kid's school.  (yes, I am thankful for this opportunity to volunteer in my children's time consuming as it is.....)

2. Hunger Games.  Hands Down the BEST book I read all year.  Absolutely one of the best books I have ever read in my life.  I don't have time to explain how good it on over to Amazon and order it now.  Here is the link. You're welcome.

1.  Celebrating 15 years with the man I love.

That was so much harder than I thought. I really have so much to be thankful for that I found it difficult to narrow it down to just 10.  I hope you take the time to reflect on what God has blessed you with in 2010.  Join us!
