1. Attending friends' concerts. One was in Davenport, Iowa, where I had one of the greatest 24 hours of life ever, which just goes to show you that you truly can't judge a place until you have been there and danced around in an empty loft apartment above the
2. Getting the flu. Twice.
3. Celebrating my 25th. It was sensational. I have a loving husband and wonderful friends that I am truly truly grateful for. And I am coming to terms with being a quarter of a century old.
4. Having a lot of football parties. And then being hugely disappointed by the Bear's loss in the final week that pushed them out of the Super Bowl. You should have heard our living room. Or not heard it, I mean. 'Twas depressing.
5. Going to California. Visiting my sisters while avoiding one of the biggest blizzards ever to hit Chicago, going on walks everyday just to soak as much of that Vitamin D into my skin as possible, gaining at least 4 pounds. I think I was meant to have picnics at hilltop wineries. But then isn't everybody?
How has your 2011 been? Exciting events? Relaxing days? Can you believe it's February?
