Merry CHRISTmas and Happy New Year

I hope all you readers had a marvelous Christmas and New Year! My family did, despite the flu that decided to sweep through our family. I was the only family member that was spared – God is good!

I very much enjoyed my gifts this year, I received: my sweatshirt pictured in the below post, The Privilege of Being a Woman by Alice von Hildebrand, candy, a sign with my name on it from my brother, a red flannel hoody, a cute mug filled with candy, cocoa packet, chocolate suckers, and biscotties from my sister, Thorn in my Heart by Liz Curtis Higgs, a new wallet, a scarf, and SOCKS! Lots and lots of wacky socks. Toe socks, striped socks, plaid socks, fuzzy socks, ect. In addition, my mom got a GPS but I claimed half of it. ;) It’s a Tomtom and we’ve already downloaded C3-PO and Billy Connolly’s voices on it. SOOOOOOO much fun!

Now for my year in a glance (I’m only going to put one or two things for each month):

January - Attended the Father Daughter Ball in IL and surprised Amanda/Rose, Megan/Kathleen, and Teresa/Yaviel. Ah. Happy memories.

February – Attended the vocation retreat at the DSMME and after much discernment, decided not to enter. Held the first annual Week in Feminine Hairstyles on my blog. Hmm – must consider doing this again.

March – Rachel and Emmy came for a week and attended the Regency Ball with us! A week of bliss.

April – Finally got to 50 followers (!!!!!!!!), and I went to IL for a weekend to attend a vocation conference of sorts, and spend some time with the Halburs – love you guys!

May – Decided I wasn’t meant to attend FUS yet, felt a renewed calling to marriage, and the Halbur’s stopped by my house and were finally able to meet my whole family.

June – Family came to visit.


August – Flew out to VA to spend a week with Rachel and Emmy. Missed you Hannah!

September – Turned 20 years old – I’m still getting used to that.

October – For Mom’s birthday we went to this amazing little peninsula that juts out into the middle of a lake and the fall colors were drop dead gorgeous! Therefore, we were actually able to take some updated family pictures with a God given background.

November – Nothing significant.

December – I was laid off or work until next season (I never realized how much I needed a paycheck), attempted not to go broke buying presents, went to see VotDT and Tangled, and once again decided to delay college until Fall 2011. (I am getting so sick of delaying college!)

2011 resolutions: To FINALLY graduate from high school! And lose at least 20 pounds.

Have a great 2011!
