best of 2011




trip.
i never thought i would have the opportunity to travel to the maldives...
i'd only ever heard of the ritzy side with the expensive resorts and knew that was out of reach...
being able to live on a tiny island with the locals and volunteer in their schools was amazing...
the trips they take us on to totally deserted islands and the nights we got to spend at one of the most amazing resort islands were unforgettable!

restaurant moment.
a small dinner at my favourtie thai restaurant back home...
just my parents, my friend sarah, her mum and me...
obviously the food was excellent (it always is)...
and the company was great!

book.
i havent gotten round to much reading this year...
but i've just downloaded the nicholas sparks book 'the best of me' onto my smart phone...
im about a quarter of the way into the book and enjoying it so far!

night out.
oh what a night!
for someone who had been planning this night for YEARS, it sure did not disappoint!
i was so happy to be surrounded by my close family and friends...
such a special night.

blog find of the year.
i really just love reading blogs by people from other countries who have come to visit/live in australia...
the different takes they have on things...
and the way they appreciate the stuff i take for granted...
passports and prada is definately one of those blogs!

album of the year.
its not an album...
but...
the one song i have not been able to get out my head this year is...
tonight, tonight by hot chelle rae

new food.
discovering cooking vegan and vegetarian meals/snacks...
i made some really yummy frozen bannana chocolate snacks that were vegan and soooo yummy, though ive misplaced the receipe :(
also trying all the vegetarian foods on the menu at local restaurants, i'd never even thought to order them before i changed my eating habits earlier this year.

what's the best change you made to the place you live?
my black and white doona cover...
and black and white photos on the walls...
it gave my room a very different vibe to last year when everything was pink!

word or phrase.
"go mayhem"
cheering on my cheer team
:)

car ride.
driving to wollongong to stay with my sister before NSW state cheer...
i was soooo excited to see my sis and stay at her place and compete at my second cheer comp...
and i had plenty of glee music lined up to sing along with.

new person.
kahlia.
we met at the start of the year when she joined my cheer team...
and we've been friends since!

 BRING ON 2012!

don't forget to relive 2009 and 2010 aswell.

:)

I never tire of your partying pictures, ever. hahha. so funny- you look so great in that wig. Makes me long for college again! You had an exciting year, sounds like you took a lot in and really enjoyed many new things- and yay for new friends!!!

I agree about reading blogs from people who bring an outside perspective to your home, it's so interesting! I love doing that as well. And I remember much from your maldives trip- I want to go!!

happy new year :)
