2011 in Review

At the end of every year I never think that the year was anything special and I usually end up telling someone, if they ask how my year was, that it was "alright."

I'm so stupid.

My year was kick-ass and it took this blog post to realize that. I don't lead a boring life, and although there are weekends when I do nothing but sit on my ass watching TV and drinking wine by myself (It's cool. I actually LOVE doing that.), there are other weekends I should probably not brush-off as mediocre.

So, here's my 2011....the short version....

I rang in the new year with three of my closest girlfriends and their boys. Also rang it in with a dude I was "seeing"....Disaster.

My girl Britney entertained me in March. I spent time with a good friend from college in Jacksonville, and we went to see Brit Brit in concert. Britney is my homegirl, y'all. 

 In April....I jumped out of an airplane for the first time. FIRST time...There will be more times in 2012.
  
In May, I went to New Orleans to celebrate the bachelorette-hood of my friend, Jamie. And yeah....I tried on her penis veil.

 Memorial Weekend at Grayton Beach...in a hammock...soaking up the sun- one of my favorite places ever. I'd live there for the rest of my life if I could....

 June- I was a bridesmaid in Jamie's wedding. :)

In October, my 28th birthday was spent with a night on the town with my favorite girls :)

I saw my husband, Dave, and his friends for the second time in concert. FOO FIGHTERS- ATLANTA, November 2011. 

My closest friend from college/sorority got married in November. She was a beautiful bride. I cried. I've determined that I'm a wedding crier. This after I always thought I wasn't. Damn. 

 I spent nights in Clarksville, at a small bar, dancing with my BFF Marion....and other random people. Sweaty= a successful night of dancing.

I did this to my hair in December......

....and got my second, long-awaited owl tattoo the next day.

My life doesn't suck. I may not always take fun vacations every single year, but I do enough. I'm thankful for all I have in my life, and the wonderful people I get to spend these moments with.
How was your 2011? Think really hard before you tell me it sucked....

Your life definitely doesn't suck! LOL Great times with great friends, and the nights at home wine-drinking alone sound nice, too. :)

Mine totally didn't suck! Even though I didn't really do anything, it still was not suck status worthy.

I LOVED this year-end recap Jenny! So so fun. And you're right...it's so important for us to have a positive outlook on our lives. And if someone says that their year "sucked," well then they probably need to go make some changes. We each control our own existence. :-)

And I want to go sky diving SOOOOOo badly!! I think I need to add this to my to-do list this year :-) Such a great picture of you.

Oh, and I more thing...I love your tattoo! Why an owl? (Just curious!)

XO - Marion
