2010 in Review: Celebrations

2009 was a huge year for Steak and Legs. We took our first vacation, graduated from our respected colleges, moved in together in a new city, started new jobs, and had a lot of firsts as recent college graduates. Although 2010 wasn't quite as action-packed, Steak and I still love to celebrate all of our little milestones. Here's a quick look at this year's celebrations before we celebrate 2010 one last time and ring in the new year!

2/14: We celebrated our 3rd Valentine's Day together in NYC. We shopped in Soho, had pizza at Lombardi's in Little Italy, toured MoMa, had a very romantic dinner at the Glass Door Tavern and saw In the Heights on Broadway.

4/4: Steak and I woke up really early to exchange Easter gifts and have an Easter egg hunt. Then we went to a big brunch and had chocolate, meat and alcohol for the first time since Lent started.

4/10: We had a wonderful party to celebrate Steak's 23rd birthday!

5/29: We celebrated 1 year of happiness under the same roof.

7/17: Steak and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary. Time sure flies by.

9/25: Steak and I went to an Oktoberfest celebration on the National Harbor.

10/29-10/31: We celebrated Halloween at Sister CJ's place and then at our 2nd annual costume party and then we went to Two If By DC's Halloween brunch.

12/4 & 12/6: Steak and I celebrated my 24th birthday with a party and a romantic dinner.

12/23: Steak and I had our very own mini Christmas celebration!

Hope everyone has a very happy NYE celebration! I can't wait to see what 2011 has in store for us!
