That’s basically all I can remember – 2010 in a nutshell.
I think I can honestly say that my favorite memory of the year was from the night we bought stick-on mustaches from a little kids bubble gum machine in the front of KMart. Shannon, Madison and my girls and I all laughed til I literally thought I was going to wet my britches. It was so stinkin funny! We all walked in to Mr. Lucky’s clinic with these hysterical mustaches on our faces and trying desperately to maintain a nonchalant expression – waiting to see if he’d notice them. bwaaahaaahaaaa As if he wasn’t going to notice his wife suddenly had facial hair!!
