My Top 11 of '11


It's 11-11-11. 
I'm sure this hasn't escaped notice. 

So, in honor of this once-in-a-lifetime day, I present to you:

My Top 11 Moments of 2011

#11: Winning 3rd place in a tennis tournament and getting my first trophy 
(an anatomically correct pig)! Booya.

#10: When my pretty, red Kitchen Aid mixer came in the mail. 
This just proves that you always should go big on a wedding registry. 
(And I definitely have used it a lot over the past 6 months. Totally worth it.)

I know this is a weird thing to have on my list, but it was so random and funny and unexpected. 
And my case was fine, so that's probably the main reason why I can think back on that incident with amusement. 

#8: Turning 25
It was a Sunday. I woke up to get ready for church, and Jordan had left my gift (a pair of earrings) sitting by the sink where he knew I'd see them along with a card. 
It was very sweet and a great way to start the day!

#7: Watching Andy Roddick and Mardy Fish play an exhibition tennis match. 
It totally made my bucket list goal of going to the US Open in New York that much more serious. 

#6: Finishing my second half marathon.

#5: Taking engagement pictures
Jordan doesn't like taking pictures as a general rule, but we had a great day driving around the city with two of our friends, taking pictures and having a fun!

#4: Watching one of my best friends get married... 
and being a bridesmaid for the first time!

#3: All the marriage stuff made my list, 
but since I didn't want the entire list to be all wedding stuff, I'll just include them all in one: Going wedding dress shopping. (My mom really did cry when I put on "the one.") Bridal showers, picking up our marriage license, and all that jazz.

#2: Our honeymoon
Seriously, if you want a great place to vacation for the weekend, 
stay at a B&B in Fredericksburg, TX.

#1--Getting married, obviously. You had to know that was coming. 
But seriously. 
I can't pick a favorite moment of the whole thing, but I really think waking up and thinking, "oh my gosh it's today," sort of set the stage for the awesomeness that was to come.

There's still more of 2011 to go, but those are the moments that have made my highlight list so far! What are yours?

Don't know if you did this on purpose, but it was a cool idea to choose things you have blogged about before (and then provide the links) so that people could catch up on stories they missed. Like it.

@AudraHey thanks! I didn't really do that on purpose; it sort of just worked out that way. But I'm glad you noticed :)
