I love this thread, and I love reading everybody's happy things! 2010 and 2011 have been stellar years for me, and I've been so overwhelmed by my good fortune.

*FINALLY FINISHED MY HUSBAND'S IMMIGRATION STUFF - and now he's here with me!!! :-D
*Husband got a job within a month of moving here

*Best friend had a beautiful baby, after trying for several years, various fertility treatments, and 2 miscarriages
*Won "rookie of the year" at work, and got $100 for it
