2010 has been a year for the history books. As the clock winds down and I prepare for tonight’s festivities I take a moment and think back on all the things that made 2010 what it was. For me personally, this was a year of consistency as well as personal growth. Nothing changed drastically for me but I did start a few new endeavors (becoming a group fitness instructor and starting this blog) that I hope will continue to bring me happiness and success in 2011.
There were many events in 2010 that will never be forgotten, namely: the earthquake in Haiti, 2010 Winter Olympics, the release of the iPad, the Chilean earthquake and miner rescue, the first full face transplant, Obama and health care issues and the BP oil spill. I could continue on and on with events that marked our lives this year both positive and negative.
Not only were there events we will never forget but there we also events we can’t forget soon enough. If I never hear anything again about Lindsey Lohan, John & Kate and their poor eight children, Mel Gibson and his craziness, Tiger Woods and his lack of self control, Octomom or Heidi & Spencer it will be to soon.
So here’s to 2010! Let’s take with us all the great fashion and Alexander McQueen’s creative genius and make 2011 even better.

I’ve been feeling a bit lazy the past few days. I’m sure it has absolutely nothing to do with all the over indulging I did while I was at my parents place (wink, wink). My husband and I happened to both have a day off together and predicted rain was holding off; I thought what better than to go for a walk and do a little window shopping. In my cutest Rachel Zoe-esk top (I mean really, who doesn’t love a bow) and comfy heels, we were off. We checked out a few antique stores and I stumbled upon a kitchen store that I’m sure is going to become a favorite. Since I was recently spoiled rotten by my husband and family I thought it best to not make any purchases but there are a few things I saw that I think may need to be brought home in the near future.

Last night I participated in a class at the gym that was “Glitter/Bling-Bling” themed. We were celebrating a friends farewell from teaching and she loves things that shine. I really think most girls are attracted to the shiny things in life, aka, Diamonds! Anyways, I’m more of a get down to business and sweat kinda girl when I’m at the gym so my glitter was limited to my festive holiday socks. I think I scored extra points since they have faux fur around the top.
Planning for class tonight made me think how much I love things that glitter and shine and how my Holiday decorating is mostly based around it. I thought I would share all things that glitter and are currently making me smile this Holiday season. What makes you smile?

My husband and I went shopping the other day and happened to walk by a display of dog toys. We always like to get our Yorkie/Silky mix, Martini, a toy or two for Christmas each year, so we decided to pick up a few. When we got home I put our shopping bags in the guest room along with all the other presents waiting to be wrapped. Well, someone decided they couldn’t wait for Christmas and went snooping. Low and behold, Martini found his new toys and brought them downstairs like he was so proud of himself. Little stinker! I’m a big softy so I let him have his new toy and I guess I’ll just have to pick him up another one sometime. He is so spoiled.
