I stole this from another blog and decided to join in on the fun! :)

1. What did you do in 2010 that you’d never done before?

Got married & co-habitated.

2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

I don't think I made none last year, I'm not big on resolutions. I did actually think of one for 2011, though. I have about 100 recipes I've printed out and I really need to organize them.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

Some friends have had babies, and my sister in law as well.

More confidence and happiness in myself.

January 8, the date we got married <3

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?

Not completely losing my mind while trying to learn how to be a good wife.

Cleaning. I hate cleaning and I need to really make some improvements in that area.
