2011=over. I cant believe it.
I had a great year! Most importantly, I got married and got a new job. Lots of good things to look forward to in 2012.
As I look back at 2011, I cant help but laugh at the outside world.
Here is my list of things I loved, and things that I am happy to see go.
If anyone is guilty of any of these things, I hope I am not offending anyone, but I too am guilty of some of these.
Things that made me sad:
The earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
I was glued to the TV for a week watching news updates and videos. I cant imagine anything more scary then a huge earthquake, followed by a wall of water swallowing a whole city. I think those are 2 of my most feared natural disasters and I felt terrible for all those people. There was hundreds of billions of damage done, lives lost, and thousands displaced. Very very sad.
Casey Anthony case also made me sad.
I followed the trial quite a bit and I know I couldnt believe it when I heard the verdict. May justice be served one day.
Things that I will not be sad to see go that was big in 2011:
Lady Gaga (Even though she will be here forever)
Russ's cute nephew Forrest, who is 4 years old, told a great Lady Gaga joke this Christmas Eve.
How do you wake up Lady Gaga?
You Poke Her Face.
Something else I would like to see calm down just a tich this coming year is mister Justin Bieber himself. I am very proud of him for all that he has accomplished at such a young age, but I need a Bieber Break.
Our adult soccer team was even named Bieber Fever.
Way to go Justin Bieber, congrats on all your success, now please go use all those millions of dollars you earned and hide out for awhile.
There are also a few sayings that really hit it big this year that make me cringe a bit, and I hope will stay in 2011. Lets hope we get some new sayings in the new year:
"Im not going to lie"
"Love, Love, Love"- suddenly you dont love something until you add 2 more "loves" But I am guilty of this one.
And the saying I want to stay in 2011 more then anything is......
"I miss your face" - just my face?
Things I loved!
Skinny Jeans! I know they were out years back, but I feel like they really came in with a bang this year, and in lots of fun colors.
I also loved Charlie Sheen this year!
I think my favorite Charlie quote I heard was, "The partying run I was on made Sinatra, Flynn, Jagger, Richards- all of them look like droopy eyed armless children". What the? What does that even mean? Thank you for entertaining me Charlie, and most of all for finally getting out of the lime light.
I also loved everyones obbsession with the Royal Wedding. No, I did not stay up to watch the wedding, nor did I follow it at all, but I loved everyones obsession for 2 stangers falling in love. It was a fun thought to think of an every day girl becoming a princess, but really? I saw homemade shirts, mugs, cakes..with Will & Kates engagemement photo. Funny, and I loved it. Oh, but I do love Kates style. She is the one who finally convinced me of nude colored heels.
I also loved Words with Friends.
Thank you to my cousin Merz for introducing me to the game. Im actually not very good at the game at all, but I have a great time playing.
I also love Hanging with Friends.
Alec Baldwin even got kicked off a plane for this addiction. I dont blame him for not wanting to turn off his game, but rules are rules Mr Baldwin, plus your not Lady Gaga, only she gets away with ridiculous things.
Thank you Words with Friends!
I loved that the war has FINALLY come to an end! I will be the first to admit that I dont like politics and really I dont follow any of it much. My "Gram" used to always tell me not to ever talk politics or religion with anyone and I would be fine. I was so excited to hear the war was to an end and all those soldiers would be home for the holidays with their families.
I can not thank all of those who fought everyday, died in action and all the families home supporting or left behind by those brave men and women. Thank you!
Also, I would love to hear what you loved, or are excited to see go from 2011.
I love year reviews.
