Here are some of my favorites from 2011...
Favorite TV Show of 2011: Parenthood and Homeland were definitely my all around favorites this year. I couldn't get enough of either of them, but could easily name 5 (or 10) more shows that I never miss.
Best Summer Project of 2011: This might not seem like a project, but watching the entire series of Friday Night Lights was by far one of my favorite things of the year. I loved this show!
Favorite Reality Show of 2011: I'm still big into all of my Bravo shows, but The Bachelor sucked me in this year like it never has before.
Biggest Accomplishment of 2011: The fact that I started exercising regularly again this year was huge for me. I joined the gym in February and have been going to spin, using the elliptical, and lifting weights regularly ever since. I'm so proud of myself for actually sticking with it, because I feel so much better.
Favorite Getaway of 2011: All of our getaways were wonderful this year! Our DC trip to visit Charlie and VABelle for the 4th of July was perfect. We always love time with them and it was wonderful to see their new house. We also had an amazing and relaxing week in Glen Arbor, MI with CAhusband's family this year and a fun trip to Louisville, KY for my sister's wedding in September.
Favorite Book of 2011: I loved so many of the books I read this year, but Bossypants by Tina Fey was definitely by favorite!
Saddest Moment of 2011: My parents moving to Virginia was definitely the hardest for me. I know it's for the best for them, and that we will likely end up closer to them someday, but I miss them a lot.
Best Purchase of 2011: This was the year I finally made the switch to an iPhone, and I'll never look back. I honestly don't know how I survived without it. Our iPad2 comes in a very close second though, I can't get enough of that thing!
Favorite Weekly Pastime of 2011: One of the highlights of each week is the Friday happy hour I have with my co-workers. I truly love the people I work with, and our Friday afternoon happy hour at the wine bar is the perfect way to start each weekend.
Favorite Beauty Purchase of 2011: I bought the Naked eyeshadow palette in June, and haven't worn any other eyeshadow since. It's wonderful! I also love my Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face wash. I highly recommend both of these products.
Most Popular Blog Post of 2011: My Erin Condren Life Planner review was by far my most read blog post of the year. My Life Planner also has to be one of my favorite things of the year. I know you've heard it all already, but it's the best planner ever.
Favorite New Recipe of 2011: These yummy lemon cookies I found on Pinterest are heavenly!
Favorite Moment of 2011: Our anniversary dinner in Laguna Beach was ideal. We has such a wonderful night together and shared the most delicious meal. It was just an all around perfect night together.
So there you have it, some of my favorites from 2011!
I hope you have a wonderful New Year's Eve! We plan to lay low and enjoy a yummy dinner at home with lots of champagne and some games.
Happy New Year, I'll see you back here in 2012!
