I can't decide how I feel about 2012. It was great for many reasons, but it was also a challenging year. Regardless, here are some of the highlights:
I started out the year with a lil trip to Arizona. My cousin Sarah got married down there. It was a beautiful wedding, and it was nice getting together with family that I don't get to see often. This picture is freaking ugly because I forgot to bring a brush/hair products so focus on Annie and Brooke....
Throughout the post I'll throw in a couple of superlatives.
Worst picture of 2012 goes to....
ME! Raccoon eyes after having to deliver some bad news. This picture is hilarious/hideous for many reasons. I love it. Also, mirror pic means that the ring is really on my right hand. I wear it every day (or I try to), and it is from my grandma. Just clarifying that I was never engaged in 2012.
Vegas/St. George trip. This is where I met Trev, Chet and Kiersten.
Valentine's party at my house.
Elysse's birthday bash. I associate with mega hotties.
Trip to Logan to stay at Brooke's. I got to ride horses twice in 2012. Bliss...
Cutest Human 2012:
Honorable Mention: Jayne (The only reason she didn't tie with Violet is because Violet is a baby. You can't compete with a baby) Next year Jayne, next year.
Park City trip with the girls in my family before Lauren moved to Michigan.
I GOT TO GO HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hadn't been there since 2008
Idaho trip with ma boyzz
Blythe and Brooke's birthday party at the cabin
Brooke moved in in August. Conference weekend at Mark's and Mags' cabins
Camille's wedding in California
Hunger Games date.
Best Dressed 2012:
Went to Michigan to meet baby girl who was born in October.
Ask me how many of my best friends got their mission calls in 2012. Including my pseudo sister? 7
Don't believe me? Let me list them for you:
And as of a few days ago my "sister":
And guess what. 2013 is bringing more. My friends are amazing.
Beautiful Elysse was the most recent home girl to leave.
Some reasons why 2012 was goooooood:
-I made tons of new friends. I don't want that to sound like I think I'm miss popular. I just made a lot of really close friends in 2012, which I wasn't anticipating.
-New baby in the fam/Announcement of another one to come in 2013
-Royal baby announcement. Bummer.... they probably won't name their baby Kate if it's a girl.
-I grew up a lot
-Applied for graduation
-Made decisions that have changed my life for the better
-Weddings of close friends. I LOVE when my friends find love. It makes me so so happy
-Vincent. I love him. He is the sweetest little guy. He turns two soon. Not allowed!
-Ellen Degeneres. This is going to sound ridiculous. I had some really rough experiences in 2012. During those times the only thing that got me through was watching Ellen Degeneres on Youtube. I love her. She does so many good things. She's incredibly generous. Also, she cracks me up (Hey Ellen! Read this so you can bring me on your show to meet you. K thanks. While I'm there could you bring Emma Stone too? Or Justin Timberlake? I know you and T-Swift are besties too so she's totally welcome. K, awesome.)
-Music. I branched out to some new tunes, but lez be honest I mostly listened to Billy and Elton.
-Sports. Not professional sports though. Ask me about the NBA, and I will say "Don't know. Don't care." Ask me about BYU basketball, and I can give you random trivia from seasons past. The conversation will be even better if Emilee Crowder is around ;)
-I got married. Wait, that was my roommate. Ran a marathon. Oh, my other roommates did that. Got my mission call. Different roommate huh? Wait guys, but I like made a quilt...
-When I went home to Maryland the giant statues of the mom and the fire fighter running with the kid that look like tinfoil people were still outside of the fire station. Creepy, but I love everything from my childhood.
- Didn't have to move into a new apartment
-Taylor Swift came out with the song 22. I'm 22.
-My house didn't burn down
2013 be cool.
