2011 in Review :)


So I am going to follow the trend and do a 2011 review on my blogging! I just put together some high lights of the year that were documented on the blog, it is fun to look back! :)

I wrote about our horrible first apartment, with the crazy smoke alarm! 

I also shared some cute and easy crafts you can do with jewllery  you already have!


Talked about being a San Diego girl in the land of ice, and running into problems like freezing my hair!


Shared some yummy recipes here and here and here. OH and we can't forget here.

 

Celebrated birthdays! &got my husband to sit still for some pictures :)


Had lunch with Senator Orrin Hatch and Mark Zuckerberg, the same day we were in line behind the Jimmer and his fiance... that was a crazy day!

Went on fun outings with the family. I love being with family.

Graduated from the University of Utah!


Moved to Provo and got glasses!


Made awesome and fun trips back home to San Diego and hung out with my best friends! &me and my best friends always have a good time!


Tried to celebrate all the little joys in life :)

Discovered the joys of dry shampoo, and even shared a my first vlog about curling your hair!


I also shared my inability to say the word Bumble Bee correctly... and then elaborated on that by doing an accent vlog!

Shared more about me in an ABC123 post! as well as some tips on this crazy world of blogging!

I talked about that time I ran into Shia Labeouf...

I started pinning on Pinterest! I also shared the news that I was a vampire.


Sliced my hands open like an Idiot! 



Spent a lot of girl time with my little sister :)


Tried to find the right balance and place for my blog in my life.

Had an amazing Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with my family :)


Looking back at all these different posts make me smile :) There are also so many things that were not documented on the blog. I am so thankful for so much joy, love and fun that I have in my life. I am also grateful for the hard times and trials that make me a stronger person.

I hope to continue to improve and grow, make new friend have and have new experiences in 2012! I can tell it is going to be a great year :) Looking forward to sharing some of it with you!
