However, I do have 1 honorary mentions. - Fashion Show! - Yes, that's right, I was in a fashion show with Ann Taylor that helped support the Junior League. It makes me giggle every time because I am not a model quality AT ALL. These photos were taken at the event, and as you can tell. I have no cat walk skill.
Thank goodness for my Junior League gal pal, Merri, otherwise I probably would have fallen on my butt!
Okay, onto the top 5!
#5 - I expanded my social network. Through the powers of blogging and tweeting, I have gained some amazing new friends. So amazing, I don't think I could have accomplished my #1 moment of the year. It's so nice to be able to expand your friends and have more perspectives and what not. I love my STL Ladies Lunch gals! Can't wait for 2012!
#4 - I became a raging Lilly Pulitzer Fiend! If I wasn't before, it pretty much went all down hill went I made my first trip to Under the Palm Tree over the summer. It only really solidified that I have a Lilly problem, and its okay!
#3 - Parties! I love throwing a good party, and so our annual 4th of July Party is always a hit as well as Gin & Juice for Jen & Jesus! Here are a few of my favorite photos
Jenn, Cece, Alyssa and I
Elena, Chelsea, Melissa and I
Marcy, me & Merri!
#2 - Going to my first Charity Gala with my bestie and hubs! It was so fun getting dresses up and looking fabulous and supporting such a wonderful cause like the Youth Learning Center!
AND NUMERO UNO!
#1 Completing my first half marathon. Not any half marathon - The Hospital Hill Run in Kansas City. The Granddaddy of all half marathons. I'm not a runner AT ALL, but let's just say finishing that race was quite an accomplishment. I have 3 amazing people to thank for that - Alyssa, Cecelia, and Cliff. While I'm not sure I'm ready to sign up to do another one next year, I will not count it out in the future.
So there you have it. My top highlights of the year! I'm super excited for 2012, and I know great things will happen. I just know it! So, stay tuned, follow me on the blogaroo and we'll go through this next year together!
