6 more months!

The other day I posted about the first 6 months of 2011 for me/my blog/life and now I am going to finish the last 6 months of 2011! This year has been spectacular and I want to reflect on it so here ya go:

July 2011

I went to the Pittsburgh Zoo and Kennywood with my mom, sis, and cousin.I was injured (still from June) but ran a little bit in the heat.I started swimming with a master’s team and went to a Pirate’s game. I worked a lot and also started doing workouts for Seton Hill’s cross country team. I had my first 5k open water race.Hannah got Lily!I made a cake for Hannah’s summer pool party.

August 2011Jimmy and I went to thePittsburgh Renissance Festival and I became a dragon slayer.

I moved into(and transferred from PSU) Seton Hill a week early for cross country campand moved out 1 week later due to some issues of the school not accepting credits. I transferred back to PSU and got a tough schedule. The end of August was really stressful :(.

September 2011Lola got a walk on a beautiful trail.

Starbucks brought back the pumpkin spice latte. HUZZAH. I also went to Market District and ate a lot of yummy food. My best friend and I went to hot yoga together. It was hot.

October 2011I admitted to my strange food obsession..Hannah and I ran a 10 mile race with Jimmy’s uncle. Twas cold.My church youth group had a blast at a local corn maze!Jimmy and I went to a fall festival and he bought me some awesome gloves. Jimmy and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary at Ohio Pyle. It rained all day but we still had a nice time. 

November 2011My family was out of town for Thanksgiving so I cooked dinner all by myself for Jimmy’s family. We had fun playing Twister and Just Dance 2 after dinner. My dad got stuck in a nasty tar spill accident but he was not injured, thankfully!I made nutella-frosted brownies, worked on the weekends, and ran a lot.

December 2011All the hard work I put into school paid off with good grades. My mom and I went to an ornament exchange.My family celebrated Christmas Eve at our church. Hannah and I sang with the youth group*December isn’t over though! I plan on: seeing a movie (TONIGHT!!!), going ice skating (tomorrow!!), visiting my grandparents (Thursday!), going to a youth group party (Friday), and i’m celebrating NYE with my church. Exciting times ahead.*


What a year it has been! I feel so blessed when I look back through this year. I have had so many great memories and I’m so happy that I have “met” all of my blogging friends 🙂


How has 2011 been for you?!


  1. I remember when I first started reading your blog! It was around the PSU fiasco. I felt SO bad because I know how much you have to go through with moving and school administrators. I feel for ya!

    You are brave for singing in front of people. Brave, brave girl!

  2. I love the idea behind these posts. It’s so neat to look back, and that’s what I think is the best thing about blogging.
