Welcome to Ye O 2011

I have to say that 2010 was a good, but hard year. The good kind of hard, the growing pains kind of hard, the wow I’m actually sleeping on theย floor of my boyfriend’s sister’s living room for months at a time kind of hard. The acknowledgment of mistakes on my part and then everything that goes into fixing those mistakes kind of hard. And I am satisfied with that.

2011 is the year (I hope) for new beginnings. I’ve always liked the number 11, so symmetrical, and in some ways – because I’m all about anthropomorphizing things – a feminine number, graceful like a ballerina.

The Wedding will be this year (THIS year. I’m getting married THIS year), and with that comes other fun activities (bachelorette? honey moon? Yes yes). I’m hoping (fingers crossed) to start a new, better, broader, relevant career this year and with that comes a whole slew of new experiences (possibly a move? definitely a new apartment) and new challenges.

I’m planning on knocking off some Life List goals in the upcoming months. Grand Canyon? For sure. Tattoo? I hope so. Finding boots that fit me? God willing. It’s going to be an adventure, one that I need buddies for, cheer squads and devil’s advocates. I’m looking to you to keep me motivated (when I struggle at motivating myself), inspired (when I’m floundering), and surprised (because ya’ll have a knack for knocking my socks off).

So 2011! Let’s have some adventures. I have some plans, let’s see where they take me.

    1. I do! It’s going to be a tree, olive-esque, on the right side of my torso kind of on my ribs about the size of my palm. I just need monies and guts. Kamel is not yet convinced this is a good idea. But I think it will be fabulous. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. My goals are a little lofty but whatevs, that’s what the promise of a new year brings, right?? Hope that we can accomplish anything!

    I want two more tattoos, to fit into my senior prom dress, go from 75% to 95% vegan, quit my job and work from home, buy a vespa and paint the exterior of my house.

    Talk to me on December 31, 2011 and ask how it all worked out.

  2. Love the tattoo idea ๐Ÿ™‚ As a matter of fact, I know of an amazing place in Seattle, where I got both of mine done, called Slave to the Needle. They’re truly amazing artists. There’s two locations, both are great. So! If you’re in town doing wedding planning or what have you, and you need something to take your mind off the stress, a tattoo is a great idea ๐Ÿ™‚ I whole heartedly recommend it! Good luck!

    1. Ooo I love recommendations like this!! The only real hangup (besides funds) I have about getting the tat, is the location and knowing that I’m going to have a hard time wearing a bra for a bit cuz it’s right where the band would be… Does anyone have thoughts on this?

    1. Ali!! I keep trying to leave you comments on your blog but the anti spam thingy keeps messing up. I’ve been trying for weeks!! Just so you know I adore you. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. haha, I adore you too! I will work on it and see if I can get it fixed…I kinda HATE blogger right now. POS does not function properly.
