My Favorite Things of 2011

I cannot believe it is almost 2012.  Wow!  This year FLEW by, didn't it?  I think the older I get, the faster it goes by.  So, I thought I would post a few of my favorite projects and recipes from the last twelve months. 

Hoot Hoot Tee

Chips Container

Burlap Hanging Carrots

Ruffled Flour Sack Towel

My Big Ole Stocking

Sew Easy Infinity Scarf

Waitress Apron Tutorial

Best Ever Cinammon Rolls

Lemon Cream Pasta with Chicken

PW Crash Hot Potatoes

Diners, Drive Ins and Dives Flappers

Buffalo Chip Cookies

Jimmy Crack Corn

Shrimp Quesadillas with Avacado Tomato Salsa

So, while I don't feel like I got much accomplished this year, at least I have a few projects that I enjoyed.  And, I obviously had my share of recipe success considering the five extra pounds I've put on this year.  UGH! 

It's been a great year.  We've lost loved ones and had some hard times, but we've also had more than our share of wonderful things too.  My baby girl started school and loves it. 

and we had a new addition to the family

Aren't they sweet?  That little girl on the right - she's ours.  The rest all went to their new homes.  That alone is reason for celebration.  Woo hoo!

So, tomorrow is a new year and a chance to start fresh, and hopefully take off a few pounds and get a lot done.  I'm excited to see what the new year brings. 

I hope you all have a fun and safe New Year's Eve!!!



  1. Happy New Year to one of my favorite blogging gals! I hope this is a wonderful year for you and your family.

  2. Looks like you got a lot done this year! Happy New Year!

  3. Seems like you've accomplished quite a bit this year! That picture of your little one starting Kindergarten is SO cute! My little one is starting Kinder this (coming) year and I hope to get a great picture, too.

  4. Happy New Year, Tanya! I remember many of those accomplishments. I guess that makes me a stalker.

    I'm actually looking forward to 2012... finally. I'm late to the party, but trying to party nonetheless.
