To begin 2010 I took a trip to Detroit with Mike to stay in the most awesome hotel (RenCen) and sit rink-side at a Red Wings game. This was one of the best Christmas gifts I've ever received. (tickets to the game were from Mike of course)
In spring of 2010 I graduated from Grand Rapids Community College with an Associates Degree. It only took about six months for me to get my diploma in the mail...
-In May Mike and I took the Lake Express Fairy across Lake Michigan to Milwaukee to see the Tigers play and to explore the city. (I got a cold while we were there and was a grump.)
-In June I went to Cedar Point with my brother and Mike. Rode some roller coasters...thought I was going to die...watched Mike and my brother ride the bigger roller coasters...
-In July Mike and I took a long 4th of July weekend to Detroit and stayed in the Hilton. We attended two Tigers games, shouted at Ichiro, sported our homemade signs and risked heat stroke.
-In August we were off to Toronto for more Tigers plus a visit to the Hockey Hall of Fame and some wandering around a strange city. (Highlight of the trip was the authentic Irish breakfast!)
-September included a visit to Chicago for Mike's birthday. We met up with friend Gabe and headed to yet another Tigers game. Also walked to Navy Pier and took a water taxi.
Also during the summer I headed to Grand Rapids Festival of the Arts for my traditional Eat-as-Many-Things-Fried-or-on-a-Stick-P
After taking the summer off from classes I started back up in the fall at Davenport University working towards my Bachelor's of business majoring in marketing.
October was possibly my favorite month as it was the month that Mike and I passed our 3 year anniversary and we bought the most awesome, comfortable arm chairs ever built. Two of my favorite things! <3
November had Thanksgiving.
December saw the triumphant return of TMS as well as the triumphant debut of Party Dad #1. Mike played his first show in 3 years at Louie's Bar downtown and booked two consequent gigs as a result. (Plug: Don't forget to come check TMS out at Juke's on January 20th and Louie's Bar on January 26th!) Mike also performed in a rendition of the Nutcracker put on by Caledonia Dance Center (my alma mater!) He was very excited to be on stage and did a splendid job. This also gave me the chance to teach him how to do his make-up. And then there was Christmas! Mike bested me once again by getting me the most awesome gift...a Coach purse! It is beautiful and he picked it out with no help from me. It was a total surprise.
Some other things that happened, but I can't remember when: I attended a GWAR concert for the first time at the behest of Mike (and I liked it!) I attended Star Wars in concert at the behest of Mike (and I liked it!) I slipped on the floor at work while dancing like a jackass and hit my head on the floor. Mike and I bought a new bed (I think that was this year) Mike got me a watch for my birthday. Actually I know when this happened...my birthday, I just didn't want to go back up to August to add it in :)
I think some bad stuff might have happened too...but I don't really remember it.
