Looking Back At 2010!

Happy New Year

My year started out with a few things I would rather forget!  In February I dislocated my hip while getting into a shuttle van at the car dealer!  My husband and I dropped our truck off for some work. We were getting a ride home from their shuttle service.  When I put my foot on the running board of the van my body when one direction and my leg went another!  My husband said he heard a noise and thought I tore my pants.  I said no that was my hip! I would have been better off with torn pants. LOL The driver kept trying to make small talk with me all the way to our house.  All I could think of is when I try to get out of the van is my leg going to be dangling! I ended up with a bruise the size of a melon.  And if that wasn't enough in March stupid me decided to move a very large TV from my guest room out to my garage and ended up in misery with a pinched sciatic nerve.   Believe it or not that pain was worse than my hip coming out of it's socket!  :)  

In April I got the brilliant idea of  starting a blog!  I don't quite remember what motivated me but I am so glad something did!  I have enjoyed this more than I could have imagined.  Meeting all of you and following your blogs has been so rewarding.  I LOVE seeing your homes and all your very talented posts.  

In June we went to beautiful Lake Tahoe to watch our twin granddaughters play softball.  We had a great time.

On August 3rd we celebrated our sweet little Sophie's 15th birthday!

In August Mike and I went to Atlantic City for the first time. YES, YES it was to see Barry!  
On September 11th Mike and I celebrated our 39th anniversary.

October 1st we celebrated Mike's 60th Birthday.
He finally got the leather recliner he's been WHINING asking for!
On 10/10/10 our family went to San Francisco to United Airline's Family Day!  Our grandkids got to see where their Papa has worked for the last 42 yrs.
October 15th we went to Las Vegas to see Barry again!  

October 28th we celebrated my 60th birthday!
Birthday flowers from Mike!

November 2nd we celebrated the San Francisco Giants winning their first World Series!

I learned how to make mosaics to share on Mosaic Mondays! I remember being so nervous to share my first one but you all were so kind with your comments I came back again!
I loved participating in Tea Cup Tuesday.  It was fun to share my collection but even more fun to see all of yours!
Joining Pink Saturday was so much fun!  I met so many lovely ladies who share the same LOVE for pink!

I imagine if I stay out of shuttle vans and don't try to move any heavy furniture 2011 should start out much better!  Wishing you a very Happy New Year!  Thanks for sharing 2010 with me!  

Tonight is also the 42nd anniversary of our first date!
  A big thank you to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for hosting Pink Saturday!

  4. Happy New Year Denise Sweetie...
    What a beautiful stroll down memory lane. I love looking back at where we have traveled over the year. Sounds as though a couple of your views weren't to good, the hip and the sciatic nerve, you could do without. Of course all the Barry shows were wonderful. I have never gone to a live concert, it's on my Bucket List.

    Here is wishing you and your family the BEST New Year's ever sweet one. I can't wait to blog through 2011 with you. It has been such a joy. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  5. Oh Denise, so many pretty photos of family, friends and places. I loved this walk with you down memory lane. Happy Pink Saturday and I would love to wish you and yours a very Happy New Year, Char

  6. Hi Denise, isn't blogland marvelous!! I've met so many wonderful women and men through blogland! I can relate to your injury although mine was my left leg 4 years ago, 2 surgeries ago I can finally put weight on my leg. It's been a rough road, but a good one. I get to be home with my daughter now and I'm loving every minute of it. Have a wonderfully Happy New Year!
    Hugs, LisaKay

  7. Denise,
    I am so sorry about your hip but when you mentioned that your hubby said he thought you tore your pants, I roared!!! That would be something that mine would say. I am so glad that you started your blog!! Mine will soon ne a year old also and what a wonderful year it has been, hasn't it??
    Happy PS and Happy New Year!!


  8. You better stick to blogging. I do not think you can get hut doing that. It might make your bottom bigger tho. Sounds like even with all the mishaps, you had a fairly decent 2010.

  9. What a wonderful stroll down memory lane, thank you for sharing it with us! I agree, no more shuttle vans and heavy objects of any kind! Whooo that hip injury sounds unbelievably painfully! Happy New Year and Prayers for many blessings!


  10. Oh my goodness, what a year you've had! But you got to see Barry in person?!!! I'm sure that made everything all right!

    Wishing you a blessed New Year!
