2011: A Year in Review

In 2011, I was a horrible blogger. I slacked in the blog game, big time. But, as small of a resolution as it may be, being a better blogger is one of mine for 2012.  So here's a look over the past year - minus all the crappy moments. 


I spent NYE 2011 with a small get-together at my house. The first part of the evening anyway... after the ball dropped and half of the party goers had either gone home or passed out, a few of us went to Fat Tuesday's for the remainder of the evening.

Here's me and Veronica:

While preparing for the party, I also made cake pops for the first time!

At the end of January, me & B took a trip to Massachusetts to visit his sister and meet little Emily.


I won my first blog giveaway over at Shasta Anne's blog - a Clarisonic Mia! :)

Random night out on the town with some lovely ladies.


I attended my very first Carolina Cup in Camden, SC.

I celebrated the weekend before St Patty's Day in Charlotte with my friend, Tara, and we attended the largest St. Patrick's Day Pub Crawl in the world.

I celebrated the actual holiday here at the beach with some of my favorite girls.


April was definitely a month of pure shenanigans. I was newly UNemployed and went out way too much.


I went to Charleston, SC for Brooke's Bachelorette Party.

I found a new love in a little thing called PinterestAnd it inspired to make Paula Deen's 'Not Your Mama's Banana Pudding'

I was officially accepted into South Carolina's MSW program.


I turned 30 years old and celebrated with some friends on the beach.

This is how I spent the majority of my UNemployed time...


July was spent watching entirely too much TV, and cooking a lot of recipes I found on Pinterest. I spent a lot of time on the beach too.

And, a lot of time watching Casey Anthony coverage.

I traveled to Lake Gaston, VA with Rich and his family during the week of July 4th.


I went to Live Oak, Florida with Rich and two of his friends to a 311 Music Festival ---- in 115 degree heat index we were camping. It was quite the experience, to say the least.

I survived Hurricane Irene.
And, more importantly, CLEMSON FOOTBALL began again!


Clemson snapped Auburn's winning streak.


I went to Brooke's wedding celebration party (since she got married in the Dominican Republic).

Clemson became 8-0 and 5th in the nation!


Me and my friend Sam went to Clemson for the weekend to attend the Wake Forest game.


My first bloggy friend, Beth , came to visit!

2012 is going to be MY year! :)
