~ meeting the boy at a speed dating event which I was attending solely so that my attached friends could live vicariously through me- funny how life works sometimes!
~ moving to Westboro- I absolutely love this quirky Ottawa neighbourhood especially my most frequented hot spot- Sushi Umi.
~ graduating from Carleton University with my Bachelor of Social Work.
~ starting my blog- this little piece of craziness has provided me with an outlet as well as a great place to meet those with similar interests.
~ finding a good hairdresser- I know this seems materialistic but for a bottle blonde this is a miracle!
Here is some photographic evidence of my low key NYE last year spent with my sister and best friend in Nova Scotia. The frightening thing? I subconsciously wore the EXACT same headband this NYE and a very similar LBD. I guess some things never change!

|Sometimes the gals are better than a boy|
1) Live long and prosper...no really these were the first words that came out of my mouth at midnight...
2) Look at the glass half full and try to see positivity in the bleakest of situations (now that I think about it, this might be more shortlived than the health nut resolution as I am known to enjoy the occasional moaning and complaining session!)
3) Manage my finances in a responsible and adult manner. The boy has already suggested we lock up my credit card and get me a pre-paid card instead (oh boo hoo what's the fun in that?) But in all seriousness, this is a resolution I want to see make its way into 2012.
4) Take up a new hobby/learn a new skill. My top choices are learning how to play the guitar; cooking (the boy would really appreciate this!); becoming a Zen yoga type warrior and/or writing a book.

|Scones? No, these were actually my pathetic attempt at sugar cookies if you can believe it! (I blame it on the British to American conversions!)|
|HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!! What are your NY Resolutions?|
