Sayonara 2011

I had planned to do a "Christmas wrap-up" post but honestly I've been lazy and feeling every bit the 7.5 months pregnant this week.
And I've been really enjoying having my people out of school and off work to just hang around the house with.
We've been sleeping in and staying up late and working around the house a bit and it's just been fun.
I can't believe that tomorrow is the last day of 2011.
It seems this year has gone by so fast!
There have been so many ups and downs but I am thankful for it all.
It was a pretty good year.
I can't say that I'm oh so sad to see it go but 2012 means we are that much closer to meeting our new baby ninja!!
Can't wait.

So thank you 2011 you've brought us so much:

Sweet Pea turned 9
Our first trip to the Jazz Festival
We celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary
We lost a dear friend
We found out we were pregnant with Baby Ninja
We found out Baby Ninja was a BOY!!
My brother got into grad school
My god-sisters got engaged
I joined and became addicted to Pinterest (follow me!!)
I've pushed myself when it came to my crafting adventures
I had to take a leave of absence from work
Growing my makeup business into something I'm really proud of
We've made this house more of a home than we thought possible
I read approximately 45+ books
I bought about 10 pairs of shoes (thanks Hautelook and Sole Society)
I cherished my new friendships and cultivated existing ones
I began to explore other avenues for my writing and became a featured writer at The Smartly
The birth of several friends babies.......the list goes on.....

All in all it has been a good year.
There are no complaints in the Dorsey household and we can't wait to see what 2012 has in store!!

We will be celebrating at home with a few friends and our Sweet Pea and by midnight I will be sipping on Sparkling Cider and wearing a very large grin remembering where we were last year and how very different this NYE is from those past......and I wouldn't change a thing.

So from my family to yours.....

Happy New Year!!!

See you in 2012!!!


  1. Happy New Year to you and your family! Can't wait to read about your journeys in 2012...and for the arrival of Baby Ninja!!! :)
