Oh, What the Heck: 2011 Review

Friday, January 13, 2012

Alright, so both my SIL's did this on their blogs... why not?  I'll finish this then 2011 is DONEZO! For reals. 

1. What did you do in 2011 that you’d never done before?
Gave birth, breastfed a baby almost 24/7, moved across the country... oh wait, I've done that before.  Ok, moved across the country at 30 weeks pregnant on a red-eye flight with two cats in tow.  Never done that before.
2.  Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I don't remember making any last year.  And I didn't make any formal resolutions this year, but I'm committed to living in the moment and worshiping God with every action.
3.  Did anyone close to you give birth?
Do I count?  Yes!  And a lot of my friends did, too.  I really want to be in the room someday with someone who gives birth (other than myself).  I think that would be so cool!
4. Did anyone close to you die?
Yes, Sean's grandfather passed away in december after battling pancreatic cancer.
5. What countries did you visit?
Sadly, none.  womp womp.  I was knocked up half the year, and kissing G's face the other half!
6. What would you like to have in 2012 that you lacked in 2011?
A forgiving heart.

June 17th- When we visited our new church for the first time

8. What’s your biggest achievement of the year?
Having Gia!  It was a long tough labor.  I'll spare you the details, but it was quite an accomplishment.
9. What was your biggest failure?
I honestly don't feel like I had one.  Sure, I've fallen short in areas, but I wouldn't say anything was a failure.  I'm pretty damn proud of the way I handled myself this past year, given all that's happened.
