Looking back at 2011

Shew, 2011 flew by for me! 

It was a jam-packed year though!

In January, I started my new and first job since graduating college! I was so excited and it has turned out great. (And we had LOTS of snow days!)

I also made a New Years resolution to stay organized throughout the year, which I have definitely been able to do thanks to my MomAgenda planner! (And of course, my trusty iPhone calendars!)

However, I have not stuck to the "attend hot yoga or pure barre once a week..." OOPS! Must work on this more next year. Maybe if I say 3 times a month, it will be more do-able!!! However, I have been LOVING my at-home PB dvd. I need to invest in a package so that I have no excuse not to go to PB class!

In February, I got the BEST VALENTINE'S DAY GIFT EVER!!!!!

Flowers at work....


I cannot even tell you how excited I was to finally have a puppy.... and a Goldendoodle! Perry is the BEST dog!! He rarely barks, loves cuddling with me, calm, loves riding in the car.

In March, UK rocked it out in the NCAA bracket and made it to the final four game....

I purchased my first pair of revas and I'm obsessed with them!

(March was kind of a slow and boring month, ha!)

In April, we lost the final four game to Connecticut.... UGH!

My sister ran her first 5K race at the Kentucky Horse Park!

We went to Isle of Palms for Perry's first trip to the beach!

And of course, the Royal Wedding I watched while I was getting ready for work in the wee early hours and later that night on DVR!

Had a party bus for Keeneland

In May, the end of the school year was in sight and my first 1/2 year of teaching was under my belt. 

In June, Perry gave us a HUGE SCARE and had an emergency trip to the vet. I've never be so scared to leave my puppy. SO SCARY!

In July, Ben and I moved into a condo together. 

And I love having a quiet pool all to myself at the new place :)

We ran a 5K in Columbus in memory of my Gammy (my grandma)

And Ben turned 25!! We celebrated at Melting Pot. 

And I found a new obsession with my Silhouette SD machine!

In August, I prepared for the new school year and having my own classroom!

In September, I apparently didn't do much of anything according to my blog! Haha! (Must do a better job blogging more next year!)

On Labor day weekend, we went down to the Lake for one last weekend on the water!

In October, we did the Buddy Walk at the Thoroughbred Center to support the Down Syndrome Association of Central Kentucky. 

And celebrated my sister and brother-in-laws birthday at Malones! So happy to have them in Lexington for their b-day!

And of course, Keeneland with everyone!

Dressing up as Woody and Jessie from Toy Story for Halloween

In November, Perry had his 1st birthday! 

And enjoyed lots of treats. 

I registered for my FIRST half marathon!!! Eek, so nervous!

And finally, in December, I became obsessed with Pinterest and made some of the things I had pinned. 

Celebrated Christmas in Columbus and Glasgow

Celebrated my 24th birthday!!!

Whew, what a YEAR!!!!!!!!! If you made it this far, I give you props! Haha

I hope everyone has an AWESOME New Years Eve!!

See you in 2012.....
