Top TEN in 2010

2010 was an amazing year for us.

Here are our Top 10 moments.

Ben did amazing in school. He made Distinguished Honor Roll
(meaning he was in the top 10% of the whole school)
Julia started her first semester at SDSU and did great (4.0)

Julia finished a "ton" of races. like 5. I didn't keep count, and probably should have, but I was proud with how many I did. And they were all spontaneous.

This is the longest one I did, and decided to do it the day before. My first 10k and it was seriously hot outside!

I surprised Ben for his birthday with Disneyland tickets (that we got for free from volunteering, but he didn't know we got the tickets because we almost didn't...long story)

We went to Ridgecrest, CA to see Ben's hometown and his mom and brother.
We had a great time hiking and chatting!

I went to Champagne, Illinois with my Aunt Patricia. I got to see my dad's side of the family that I hardly know. It was so fun!!

Christmas in New York.
When my friend Blake called to tell me he was leaving New York in 6 months to a year, I knew we had to jump on that invitation of staying with him. So we decided that would be our Christmas gift.

We had so much fun and tried to fit everything we could into the trip. The (32 degree) weather was perfect. We never got snowed on, and missed all the rain in California.

And in the same trip we went to DC to visit some friends.

All the siblings together again for the first time in 3 years.
We had a lot of fun at Christmas telling stories.

Changing our eating habits
and learning how to cook yummy vegetarian meals.

Honeymoon in Mazatlan, MX!
We were truely blessed to have been given our honeymoon as a wedding gift
from a wonderful friend.
We had such a great time exploring the city, countless $13 massages, pool side drinks and meeting new people.

Number 1 thing of 2010:
our beautiful wedding!

We got married in the San Diego Harbor on a wonderful Sunday afternoon.
Our close friends and family joined us and everything was absolutely perfect!

And to close out 2010, on New Years Eve, we made our vision boards for 2011!
