What happened in 2010???
#1. I got engaged! - of course this has to be on the top of the list. And it's hard to believe that it happened almost a year ago! While normal people don't stay engaged for a long time, Andy and I don't mind it. Sure... we want to get married. But weddings cost money. And when we're ready, and financially stable... there will be a phenomenal wedding, don't you worry.
|Zappa: Help me mommy, there is a crazy man behind me|
Yup... I'm marrying him (and no, I do not mean the dog). =)
#2. I'm still blogging! - I can't believe it. Almost a year and a half and I'm still at it! I couldn't do it without you guys! So hopefully I continue well into 2011 and beyond.
#3. I made the decision to go to culinary school. After I finish my bachelor's in Biology. I've been in school long enough, and I'm so so close to being finished, that I owe it to myself to not just let it go by the way side. And science plays a big role in cooking, so it may prove to be beneficial in culinary school!
#4. I bought a new car! Yep, a 2009 Ford Focus. Great gas mileage, practical, and gets me from point A to point B. All I could ask for in a vehicle. We'll save the shiny sports cars for a later life.
#5. We went to Savannah, GA. Although it was a cheap vacation (my brother lived there, so hello? no hotel fees!, but now he lives near West Palm Beach - so you can probably guess what this summer's vacation will be), it was exciting and an absolute beautiful place!
So what do I want out of 2011?
And although they're numbered, these aren't in any particular order...
#1. Do more (or at least 1!) Daring Cook's Challenge. I joined the site over a year ago, but have actually never participated. I don't know if it was lack of time, confidence, or what... but I'm telling myself that I'm going to challenge myself and do a challenge or two, or three... you get the point.
#2. Make a cooking video for the blog. Yeah, me... on the blog... in a video. It's gonna happen. I hope.
#3. Actually make wedding plans. I want to at least finalize a venue. We keep going back and forth (mainly because we keep seeing amazing venues) on where to get married.
#4. Cover more Louisville Food Events. Louisville has so many food-related events that I'm surprised I haven't attended more of them. I'm really hoping my sister can pull through and get me tickets to Desserts First (she's working on an internship with a Louisville social magazine that covers charitable events, and this is the first event she's writing an article on!).
#5. Plan a group vacation. My group of friends has already discussed this. We really want to head out to Vegas. Whether Vegas or somewhere else, we'll have a ball... and probably end up in some sort of trouble.... but that's half the fun, right?
So yeah, simple, achievable goals... right? Right.
What about you guys? What do you love most out of your 2010? And what are your goals for 2011??
