Well here it is! 2012!!! 2012 is definitely going to have some competition because 2011 has been such an amazing year filled with lots of exciting adventures! Just a little recap of 2011 before we move into another exciting and fun-filled year! In 2011:
* I graduated College!
* I went out of the country for the first time and traveled Australia for two weeks
* My sister got married which led to me getting a brother :)
* I started my career as an educator
* I competed in my last cheerleading competition ever :(
* I became a Varsity Cheerleading coach
Those are just a few of the MAJORS, but through all the ups and downs, I am very happy to say that I had a great 2011.
New years always make me reflect on the past year and it really is a time to see how blessed I am. I am so thankful to be at this place in my life, surrounded by everyone that surrounds me. Sometimes I wonder if I am growing up too fast or experiencing too many things at once but I wouldn't change anything about the path I am on because I know that it is the right one :) I look forward to what 2012 has in store for me!!! 12 is my favorite number, so I am expecting big things!!
New Year's Resolution: To blog more. I picked this because it is one I have never done before, (I don't know how many times i've said I will work out more, I should know by now that never lasts) it is a very positive resolution, and it is also a very achievable resolution. Win, win right?! Why not record and share all the exciting things going on? I will be glad I did this one day!
Tomorrow is my last day of break and I am very upset about it. Now don't get me wrong, I am still very much in love with my Job but this break has just been TOO wonderful! I got to spend a lot of time with my family! On Christmas Eve, My sister and Jordan (Brother-in-law) had my family and Jordan's whole family over for christmas eve dinner! It was so fun to be able to share their first ever Christmas eve together with them! After, I stayed with them and we had a little Christmas Eve sleepover! Ya see, Sister and I have NEVER been apart on a Christmas eve so Bruhder (That is what I call Jordan) said I could stay! So the three of us snuggled up, watched the Santa Clause 2 (Katie and I's favorite christmas movie ever) and waited for Santa! It was perfect!
Another good thing about my break was my high school friends. I have been blessed with a wonderful group of friends from high school. A lot of people dread coming home and seeing their high school friends but our group is still all best friends and we make a point to get together every chance we can! I love all of my friends I met in college and all along the way, but there is just somethin' about my high school group that just makes me so happy! This year, along with a few other outings, we had a bonfire the night after Christmas and it was wonderful!
Also, this break has been good for relaxing, something I don't get to do very often! I have been taking full advantage just laying around and not doing much of anything. The most exciting part of this is that I finally had time to catch up on my reading! I usually read every night but when I am teaching, I usually only fit one page in until I am fast asleep so I finally got to read the series "The Hunger Games". Let me tell you, if you haven't read these books yet, they are AWESOME. I read all three of the books in two days! The first movie comes out in March and I am very much looking forward to that!!
Happy New Year!!!!
