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:
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.
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?!
