January 2010…Happy New Year…recovering from the holidays and a lot of visitors…wedding planning begins…Jackson is SGA Representative for his class…Philadelphia and Battleship New Jersey trip with Cub Scouts…incredibly early morning drive from NJ to MD because Jackson got sick on the ship – not seasick, some kind of stomach bug from hell…I got it a few days later and thought I was going to die…the month ended with all of us well, me ten pounds thinner (thanks to the stomach virus), and some snow on the ground

February 2010…preparing for more snow…snow projections say “paralyzing” over our region…bought a treadmill…SnOMG…snowmageddon…over 2 feet of snow and a lot of cabin fever…Cub Scout bake sale was well-timed though…while stuck in the house I baked 4 cakes, 6 loaves of bread, and 26 cupcakes…as long as Selby’s had eggs, I was going to keep baking!…Happy Valentine’s Day!!…bought our wedding rings 🙂

March 2010…shopping for a wedding dress with my mom…ended up buying the first one I tried on after an entire day of shopping and telling myself there was no way I could fall in love with the first one…Pinewood Derby and Jackson placed third!…got wedding shoes…fabulous pink Kate Spade strappy heels…wedding plans changed…originally planned for May 22nd in Virginia but changed to April 13th in Maryland with a trip to Disney World with our kids!…Bob ran in the Shamrock Marathon along with his brother Bill and his nephew Greg while my soon-to-be sister-in-law Susan and I cheered them on and got sunburnt…Jackson was George W. Bush in a wax museum project at school

April 2010…Jackson spent a week with his dad in Virginia…Bob spent some time in Virginia while his dad was in the hospital (doing well now)…I became Mrs. Swanson 🙂 …we went to Disney World for 6 magical days…Heidi was able to join us for 3 of them and Brian for only 2 but it was great for all of us to be together!!…recovering from the trip and beginning our Happily Ever After 🙂

May 2010…Bob ran in the Frederick Half Marathon…Happy Mother’s Day!…Work Picnic…our debut as Mr. and Mrs. Swanson…slow month but a happy first month of wedded bliss

June 2010…AC went out 😦 but it was under a kick ass warranty :)…yard sale…Jackson spent another week with his dad and saying good-bye isn’t any easier than it was when we started doing this 7 years ago…Topsy Turvy…bell peppers a success…tomatoes were late bloomers…Happy Father’s Day!…I turned 34…my parents visited for a week…Jackson started karate…Jackson attended Cub Scout day camp

July 2010…Induction Day for Bob’s daughter Heidi at the Naval Academy…an emotional day for all…Happy 4th of July…Bob’s brother and his family came for a visit…we had an earthquake, really? an earthquake!!…we were awake and we did feel it and I did drop the F bomb as in WTF was that…I got a potter’s wheel…it’s been a dream of mine for a long time…Cub Scout rocket launch…100 days of marriage…Bob sent me flowers and everyone at worked gagged :)…severe thunderstorm…biggest understatement since they said we got “some” snow…nearly 7o mph winds and a lot of limbs from our neighbors’ trees in our yard…but we didn’t have any damage and never lost power…some folks had severe damage and were without power for a week
