I’m jumping on the bandwagon and doing a 2011 recap.

So many good things happened this year! Here are just a few of them (starting in January and ending in December):

Jonathan and Jessie got married

I discovered the MAGIC that is a top knot (and basically stopped washing my hair)
I finished my 2nd year of law school!!
I celebrated being done with another year of law school
I moved to a trailer park on an Indian reservation in the middle of nowhere Oregon
I had my first ever grown up lawyer-ish job doing estate planning for Umatilla Tribal members
I went camping (for the first time in years) for my brother’s 22nd birthday
I had the BEST 4th of July [weekend] (brunch party, TREW party, camping with Dustin)
I also went to lake billie chinook with my brother and cousins that weekend

I spent three weeks in White Salmon/Hood River in August and partied it up with my besties every day
and generally just had good Beth and Marissa time which I loved

I turned 25
My baby tot cousin was born the day after my birthday
Dustin and I celebrated the 1 year anniversary of our first date
I spent my first ever Christmas away from home

And some of the music that will always remind me of 2011 (probably not in any order):

The Foster the People CD
Party Rock Anthem – LMFAO
So many Rihanna songs (we found love, cheers, you da one, what’s my name, etc.)
& so many Lady Gaga songs (born this way, you and I, the edge of glory, etc.)
Buzzin – Mann
Drop it Low – Ester Dean
Hello – Martin Solveig
Ce jeu – Yelle
Just can’t get enough – Blackeyed Peas
ET – Katie Perry
Buttons – The Weeks
Shake it out – Florence and the Machine
Tongue Tied – Grouplove
Your Song & also Lights by Ellie Goulding
The Jay Z & Kanye CD (mostly Monster & Otis & N***** in Paris)
the Hood Internet
Black and Yellow – Wiz Khalifia
that Better with the Lights off & also that kick it in the back seat song
& also Stereo Hearts and Moves like Jagger and Adele because that’s ALL that’s ever on the radio

Also some of my favorite fashion trends of 2011 (because you know, things like that are cool):

top knots
stripes every day
fur vests
everything Native American print
cropped-ish shirts

Last of all, some awesome 2011 pictures, because what’s a blog without pictures? (again, in no particular order):

So here’s to hoping 2012 is as good as (or better than) 2011 has been. I hope you all have a happy New Year (and a happy time celebrating New Year’s Eve – p.s. I finally got a sparkly dress to wear)! Catch you all next year!!
