Happy New Year (almost)! Today is the last day of the year and I can’t believe it. When 2010 started, I was so overwhelmed with excitement, more than almost any other year. I knew God had big things in store for me and my family.
I ended up starting a blog. Who knew? I celebrated my 5 year wedding anniversary. I turned 30. I fought battles. Won some and lost some.
I have so much to be thankful for this year, including all of you. I have the most rockinest readers around. I’d love to know what were some of the highlights of 2010 for you, as well as some of your low points.
Here are mine…
Biggest achievement. Starting Modern Reject and keeping with it.
Biggest failure. Making Modern Reject an idol, until the Spirit convicted me and kicked me promptly in the behind.
Biggest surprise. How badly I want a third baby. We’re still praying… I’ll keep you posted.
Worst day. A couple of weeks ago when my son decided to crack his head open on a cement block. Horrifying and terrible.
Best day. I think I had a lot this year, but a few stand out. My husband’s first day at SoChurch, the business he started with some other talented folks. My 5 year wedding anniversary (my husband spoils me). And, as much as I hate to admit it, my 30th birthday.
Biggest lesson learned. Hmm… Well, unfortunately it was a lesson I had to learn again. God really is on my team. He really does love me and, not just love me, but adores me even. I don’t have it all wrapped up and nailed down, but He is bringing me there. Also, lots of lessons have been learned in regards to finishing what you start and making an investment, thanks to this here blog.
Also, here are the Top 10 Modern Reject posts. These are the most-read posts since I moved over from my Tumblr blog to the blog you see here.

Which of these posts did you dig? I think The Trouble with My Mouth (#7) is still one of my favorites. Top 10 Phrases I Never Want to Hear Again (#3) has the best comments of any other Modern Reject post in terms of hilarity. You guys are stinkin’ funny. Is There Really a War on Christmas (#4) was me (and some others… thanks) debating a few atheists. Read the comments for the real juicy bits.
Care to answer any of the questions I posed? What did you love about 2010? What could you have done without? Biggest success? Biggest failure? What are you looking forward to in 2011?
