Wrapping it up

No, not like that:



I am way behind here. I don't think I ever posted about Mallory's birthday, and I had some thoughts about Christmas decorations which I guess I'll save until next year, and I should tell you about the fab time I had with my family last week, but instead I'll just sum up 2011.

Best Books Read:
There But For The by Ali Smith
Chime by Franny Billingsley
The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan
The Boy in the Moon by Ian Brown
Please Look After Mom by Kyung-Sook Shin

Worst Books Read:
Obedience by Will Lavender
The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown
Sister by Rosamund Lupton
The Sherlockian by Graham Moore

Best Movie:
Bridesmaids

Fave TV show:
Modern Family; also Prime Suspect but I think they're taking it off the air

Proud of myself for:
Teaching myself how to crochet
Losing 10 pounds between Thanksgiving and Christmas (now need new pants)

Best new experience:
Riding a Segway with Aimee through downtown Charlotte

New places traveled to:
Atlanta
Chicago (prefer Chicago)

Glad that I:
Took the girls on fun outings this fall, even though it ate up my weekends and wore me out

Not glad that I:
Spent too much time on the internet
"Prepared" so many unhealthy "dinners" for my family

Most fun had:
Trip to Chicago (except for getting there, and the heat)
Visiting my family at Christmas

Favorite picture:



Up next:
Painting/reorganizing the girls' bedrooms

Hope to:
See my whole family again soon
Crochet more
Exercise more
Get my children to eat vegetables and meat that isn't dipped in batter

Happy 2012!
