2010 Review Extravaganza - Part 2

I'm going to do this recap a little differently than last week.  I think last week's post got a little wordy.  So, this week I'm just going to post headlines, pics, and links...and don't forget about another giveaway at the end!

First up, Bon Jovi Concert!

Sing it with me "Shot through the heart and you're to blame.  Darlin' you give love a bad name"

I was taking LOTS of of new pictures and one of my favorite ones of the year came from Easter.

I was also exploring my camera and LOVING IT!

Breaking Ground!

12th Anniversary

Train Ride to Fort Worth

End of the year Field Trips

(more pics...if you're into that sort of thing.)


Relay for Life

Eclipse Party Planning
My two MOST viewed posts of the year came in the month of June while I was doing all of my Eclipse Party Planning.   free Eclipse Printables and Eclipse Party Pics
That pretty much wrapped up those three months.  They were BUSY, but they were fun!  I'm pretty sure after all of the Eclipse planning, party, and premiere I passed out!  Allison and I were running on two to three hours of sleep a night.  She flew in from AZ the day before and we decorated and picked up supplies for about 24 hours straight!  We saw Eclipse THREE TIMES before she left!  It was epic.

To read more reviews and to link up, visit one of these lovely ladies...Emmy, Mimi, Shortmama,

This week's giveaway is for one of my other FAVORITE things that I've mentioned here and there in blog posts throughout the year...the entire Hunger Games Trilogy.  If you haven't read it, you'll LOVE it!  This is your chance to own all three books!! 

You know the drill...follow and comment!  Tweet this or post it on your blog for more entries.  Be sure to come back here and tell me about it in the comments.

Just gave my brother the first hunger games bc it was finally in paperback. He refuses to read books until they are in paperback. It's annoying.

Thanks for stopping by today. I am your neighbor to the North , the state you beat in the Big 12 Championship at the beginning of the month :(. I saw that you are NKOTB and Joey fan and is that a black lab in your post below? We have a lot in common. Loved your second review I am heading back to read the first!
