Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012!

by - Tuesday, January 03, 2012

Happy new year, everyone! My flight landed on New Year's Eve, but I did manage to stay up to see the clock strike midnight. Shortly after that I slept for a good 12 hours. Jetlag, I'm over you.

I'll be honest, my 2011 resolutions were promptly forgotten after a few months *ducks head* and only resurrected because it's a new year.

How did I do?
(1) I did manage to stop buying useless dresses. All the ones I've bought in 2011 have been worn at least twice, I believe. Some were worn more than that (as they should).
(2) Fat to weight ratio have probably remained the same but redistributed throughout the rest of my body. Once a lazy bum, always a lazy bum.
(3) I did end up taking a vacation (at the end of the year, just barely). High five!
(4) I've surprised myself with heels this year. Not only have I been wearing them more, I've been easing into 4" territory. I'm still quite the wobbly-walker but slowly gaining more balance.
(5) I broke this one and it happened only 5 months into the year.

All in all, 3 out of 5 isn't horrible. I don't think I'll be setting any for myself this year, because well, I'll probably forget about them in mere weeks. Again.

  15. Thanks, everyone. I had an amazingly fun time on vacation and will definitely write up a post once I sort through my pictures.

    @Olyvia - Sorry to be so confusing! I meant that I broke my "no buying a bag" ban 5 months into the year because of the Longchamp. The bag is still looking good with the handles in tact and not looking like they're going to break anytime soon *knocks on wood*

  16. LOL I don't even want to look back at what I wanted to do for 2011. But I guess I should :P Happy New Year Cee!!!!

  17. Welcome back! Great you had good time on your vacation! I like your jacket too.

  18. Yay, so glad you're back!! Happy 2012! I was good about resolutions for about 3 months and then they went by the wayside. I've made some for this year that are hopefully more realistic :)

  19. Welcome back Cee! Happy New Year to you! And yes you did great - 3/5 is fantastic. Love your Zara jacket- looks so nice on you :)

  20. I didn't even go back and revisit my 2011 resolutions, because I'm pretty sure I stopped paying any attention to them in March. Here's hoping to better luck in 2012 :)

    Hope you had a fabulous, fabulous trip!
