Looking back on 2011

As we get closer and closer to the New Year...I figured I would do a little re-cap of all things 2011. Is it just me or did 2011 go by incredibly fast? Like lightening speed fast.

So, without further adieu...I give you 2011...Blonde Oklahoma girl style.

Ringing in 2011 with some of my favorite people in Ft. Worth, Texas. Billy Bob's...I love Ft. Worth,  I love Billy Bobs, and I love cowboys.



The day we flew back, Sara G...in the top picture found out she was pregnant with little Miss Mia.

Oh and before we end with January...we had a little thing I like to call a FREAKING BLIZZARD....where I was stuck inside for days, how many I don't remember. If I learned anything at all, it's to stock up on the wine.





February, Miss Football flew in for little linebackers first birthday and we all got to spend some best friend time together, with dinner, wine and a hockey game.






A wedding...at a hockey game?? Yes, it happened.The mascot was his best man and the cheerleaders were her bridal party.

March...I spent some good quality time with my favorite people, Nana and Papa and celebrated Papa's birthday.


April...baby brother turned the big 18


and we celebrated by taking him to his first Calf Fry in Stillwater.



May...baby brother graduated high school...so proud of him.







June was pretty low key...actually very hot...so my days were spent at the lake or pool.

July brought my momma's birthday and a camping trip for the girls over the Fourth of July....no pictures...but it was a blast!!

I also squeezed in a little NKOTBSB concert....my thirteen year old self was very happy that day.




At the end of July, the BFF's and I took a girls weekend trip to San Francisco...where we went wine tasting in Napa and ran in a little thing called the San Francisco Marathon. Three of us participated in the progressive 5K...but Miss Football ran her first Half-Marathon and we were all their to cheer her on.


I sang a little Karaoke



Our half-marathoner



Here's to my first half happening in 2012!!

August...I celebrated turning the big 27 in Kansas City with my mom, bestie and bestie's mom.






Little miss Mia was born in September...remember the friend who found out she was preggers on New Year's day...



Sporting her favorite school.

October..world's greatest homecoming celebration in my favorite town, at my favorite school, with some of my favorite people...





Oktoberfest party....





and just to add it in...not sure what month it was...but we had an EARTHQUAKE...several actually. Weirdest thing I have ever experienced.

November...Thanksgiving spent with the ones I love the most...my mom, nana and papa and baby brother. Fun times playing dominos. I seriously need to take more pictures....New Year's resolution...take more pictures.

December....Oklahoma State University beat the other school in Bedlam to become BIG XII CHAMPS FOR THE FIRST TIME!!!!!!!

The best friends who were at the game...sadly I was not...but that's ok because I was waving my wheat from the comfort of my home, where it wasn't freezing cold.



Christmas....spent with my family...once again I have no pictures...and NYE 2012 will be spent on the mountains snow skiing!!

Looking forward to all the amazing, wonderful things to come in 2012!!

It looks like you had a great year! Sounds crazy, but I WISH we would have snow like that sometimes...What better excuse to be lazy and sip wine and read all day? :)
