Happy Holidays and a Year in Review.

Yes, I’m a bit late but the holidays were pretty damn hectic. Sure I did my Christmas shopping earlier but there was a matter of divvying up my time with errands, my family, and Mr.S’ family. December 24 especially. I really wanted to go to YC’s house to decorate his beer Christmas tree but alas, I’m hoping Yuki would do it for me? 🙂 Speaking of, do I need to re-wrap your gift so you can be surprised? LOL! Thanks for letting me use it. It drove Mr.S nuts I think after we left your house… haha!!

Hope everyone had a great Christmas or whatever you celebrate and that all your holiday wishes came true.

Thank you to all my friends who made this month amazing! Ok minus the fact that people who I sent cards to didn’t acknowledge that I sent them one but whatever…

I’ll be making use of my new Christmas presents soon – making icecream tonight. I got myself an icecream maker courtesy of my mother.

  1. Wow! You managed to accomplish a lot over the past year. This is such an excellent idea, that I may consider doing something similar at the end of 2012 if the world doesn’t end. LOL

    My favorite Christmas gift this year was a pair of Hello Kitty Slipper Boots from JCPenney. <3

  2. I’m jealous you got to visit Europe (even if only London and Paris) this year. I went to Orange County and Los Angeles for the first time this August!

    It sounds like you had a great year and I hope 2012 will be excellent for you as well.

  3. Oh gosh 2011 seemed so much fun for you!! Moving in with Mr. S (ooohhh hahaha!), TRAVELING (oh gosh I ENVY YOU TRAVELING EVERYWHERE), getting a job. WHOAH that’s a lot of happenings there! hahaha 🙂

    BEER CHRISTMAS TREE? SAY WHAT? LOL XD hahaha

  4. Happy New Year! Seems like you had a pretty eventful year, Anndrea 😀 So joyous and fruitful, I’m envious that you go to travel so much last year!

    My favourite present is my Leonardo da Vinci calendar~ can’t wait to put it up in my flat.

  5. It sounds like you had quite a good year! I thought about trying to do something like this, but it’s hard for me to remember all of the major things that happened because there weren’t too many huge things for me. It’s always interesting to be able to look back though!

    And yes, HIMYM is a great show! It was a little hard to get into at first, but once you get to know the characters and things develop more, it’s almost. I’m almost done season 6 now, and I think I might watch another episode in a bit before cleaning my room 🙂

  6. I’m glad you had a good December month this holiday! 🙂 I do always enjoy the holiday period, too. 😛

    Aw it sounds like you had a good year! You weren’t alone on Valentine’s Day 😛 Last year I really wasn’t bothered about being a lone on Valentine’s Day but I know that this year I will feel more bothered. xP Especially because my friends are always bothered too (if single).

    October sounds like it was a good year! I barely did any travelling this year that wasn’t just around England, haha, hopefully 2012 will be different. 😛

    Happy new year!! Here’s to a good 2012 xD
