I was trying to figure out out I wanted to sum up 2010. I was just going to make a boring list, but I realized I really don't want to do that and don't have the time to. Then I found this meme from a fellow blogger. So here's the mindless part 1 of my 2010 review:

Got married and moved away from my family.
2. Did you keep your New Year's Resolutions from last year and will you make any for 2011?
