My year in review --- and whatever other else ramblings I'll come up with....
2010 has probably been one of the best years of my life --- and here's why starting from the top ---
Cold weather, nothing terribly exciting, the usual celebration at Longhorns - pretty boring. Jan. 28, 2010 -- One of the last Kyle Bennett Band concerts at Longhorns.
Josh & I - Our first picture of 2010
More cold weather --- My 5 year class reunion; Feb. 4, 2010 - the LAST Fat Dixie concert at Longhorns. I saw these guys for three years. I've seen them change drummers three times - it was always fun when they were around.
Our last picture with Mr. Jared Sutton - friends, if you're in Oklahoma and he's playing - go see him.
Josh & I had our two year "dating" anniversary on Feb. 23, - we had a nice dinner at Old Chicago before he had to go to work.
Another favorite concert - Mr. Aaron Watson & the boys were back in town.
March --- fairly boring this year....
I did get to see Clay Walker - not a terrible show, except he sang "Lonely too long" twice, and then they played it as his exit.
Fake Patty's Day -- not my favorite, ever.. too many drunks that smell --- but Lindsay did come see me at the bar
St. Patrick's Day -- trip to Oklahoma -- why? To buy a truck :)
Josh & his new beautiful diesel Dodge truck :)
April --- The start of weddings & baseball. I was honored to photograph, our friends, Jess & Cade's wedding - BEAUTIFUL!
Here's my favorite image --
and of course, BASEBALL ----
One more month until our wedding - holy cow! Those were my thoughts every month until our wedding. So much planning, showers, and events - it was amazing!
My maid of honor, Jennifer & I at my shower in Wichita.
Cason's first t-ball game - he was awesome!
My favorite month of course :) So many events, I'll try not to bore you --
My 23rd Birthday - Dinner at Olive Garden with Josh, Jess, Cade, & Coy - it was small and great :)
My bachelorette party in Kansas City - it was so much fun (minus power & light - I will never willingly go there unless an event is going on and it's for someone I love dearly).
I'm so thankful for each and every one of you that helped make this event so special.
THE WEDDING :) June 26, 2010 - the day I married my best friend, Mr. Josh Olsen (if you're bored, check out the other blogs about the wedding). I'll just post some of my favorite moments of this day ---

November -- Thanksgiving - family time, football - lots of football.
December -- Christmas! It was so hard to get in the spirit this year for Christmas. I still have no idea why. Best part of Christmas, like always, is family. Poor Cason was sick with the stomach flu, so activities were limited. It was nice and quiet.
Our first Christmas as Mr. & Mrs.
I hope you all have had a wonderful year - these are just brief moments of the many wonderful events that have happened. Happy End of 2010 and Happy New 2011! xoxoxo
