Another year is about to end and I have to say, I’m sad to see it go. Here are some of my top  memories from each month of 2010.

In January, I celebrated Elvis’ birthday with my man at Lee’s, went to the Best New Bands showcase at First Avenue (never miss this show!) and started early a.m. bootcamp with this girl. As it turned out, our trainer was a pathological liar/crazy person, but we didn’t know this until mid-February.

In February, Curan took me to see Mavis Staples at the Dakota, my brother and I went to Rhymesayers’ Benefit for Haiti fund-raiser and I ate insanely good pork rinds at Publican. (Go Bears!)

In March, my dearest friend in the entire world came to visit. (I miss you, Jessi!) Other things that happened in March: I started this blog & ate a damn good burger at House of Coates.

In April, I got really sick, but got better in time to see Charley Pride at Treasure Island. I also saw the Twins play at Target Field for the first time and hosted a clothing swap.

In May, I went to Canterbury to see the Derby and started hosting a weekly nacho night with my best girl friends. I. Love. Nachos.

June was a month full of music. P-Funk, Black Keys, Booker T & the MGs & last but not least, Tom Petty. I also started writing for Beauty Bets, inherited two vintage cameras and planted some veggies.

In July, Mary and I had a blast up north at my family’s cabin and then my sweetie’s beautiful daughter came to visit. On Bastille Day, we saw Chooglin’ play at Barbette and then bussed it down to Orchestra Hall to see America. The next week, Mary and I saw Neil Young. July was amazing.

In August, Jamie got hitched. It was a gorgeous wedding and a super fun night. Another big thing to happen in August? Rae and I started a business. Later in the month, my honey and I took our first vacation together. We went to Chicago to see The Stooges and honest to God, it was the most perfect weekend ever.

In September, I started working a ton on Mighty Swell. I went to Hank’s birthday party, saw Best Coast and Ludacris and went on a thrifting trip through Wisconsin. Curan and I also caught the tail end of the State Fair.

In October, Rae and I had our first pop-up sale! I judged the Drunken Spelling Bee with Mary and I started living on my own for the first time in goodness knows how long. We saw the Vaselines and I went thrifting a lot. This navy and red dress is a favorite Savers find from that month.

In November, I turned 28. I also saw Rev. Horton Heat with this awesome girl and went to a swanky fashion show with Mary. My man and I celebrated two years together with brunch here and drinks at Jimmy’s. We seem to wind up there whenever there’s a special occasion.

And last but not least, December! Rae and I put on our second pop-up, and it blizzard-ed. Jamie had her baby, and she is precious.

All in all, it’s been a pretty good year. I can’t wait for the adventures that 2011 is sure to bring!

I hope you all have wonderful nights!

  1. This was a fun year-end reflection to read. Loving the summer pics! It’s hard to believe that it’s January now and 6 degrees outside. It makes me want to BE YOU in that picture with sunnies, sunshine and blue sundress!
