And a Happy New Year

12.28.2012



This year has been a lot of fun. Even though I only got used to writing 2012 as the year last week, bring on 2013. LET'S DO THIS.

Does anyone remember being small and thinking of the year 2000 and how old you would be? I would squeeze my eyes shut and imagine the glamorous and mature 14-year-old I would be in the year of a new millenium. Obviously I had watched Zenon, Girl of the 21st Century too many times.

But seriously - ZETUS LAPETUS! (<---YOU'RE WELCOME) Where has the time gone?

Here are my favorites from this year.

Feel free to peruse the former days, or DON'T - BUT MAKE SURE YOU WATCH THOSE ZENON CLIPS.


LIFE:

An Engagement
A Wedding (Part I, Part II)

TRAVEL:

Ireland (Part I, Part II, & SHEEP)

ADVENTURES:

A Hurricane (Part I, Part II)
What YOU Need to Know If You Want This Job.


HONORABLE MENTIONS:

For Whitney.
Oh, the Embarrassment.
Fifty Shades of NO, DON'T.

  1. woo for 2012 being the year of engagements & weddings!

    also, I like the way you laid out this post. I'm writing mine now and it's kind of a jumbled, word overload mess.

    1. I started out the same way and I thought, "Shoot, I totally would not even want to read this if I saw it." SO I had to simplify and not include EVERY POST I'VE EVER WRITTEN IN 2012 like a narcissistic butthead.

    2. Being a blogger is the epitome of being a narcissistic butthead, but I agree that we have to tone it down for the general viewing public.

  2. I am going to read all of these today. You are presh and I love reading anything you write. Also, did you have a crush on Protozoa like I did? It was rekindled when he was on 24. So fly.

      YOU ARE MY SUPERNOVA GIRL, JESS.

      Doesn't he kind of have a Newsboys sound going on?

      Of COURSE I had a crush on him. Who didn't?

  3. Lo @ Our Crazy Ever After turned me on to your blog and I've been a follower ever since. Especially after my guilty pleasure "Pan Am" (tv show about flight attendants in the 60s) went off the air. Definitely looking forward to going back and reading these features posts!

    P.S. great creative layout for a new yr's recap post - totally borrowing it, hope that's okay, will be linking to you/your blog in my post, because i know some of my readers will love your blog. :)

  4. I'm a little younger than you - I was too young to remember ringing in the new millennium (although I do remember from stories that while my parents were at a family friends' party, the other kids and I were upstairs watching Birds). ButI do remember Zenon.... I miss that show.
    And it sounds like you've had an wonderful and eventful year! Can't wait to see what 2013 brings :)

  5. MY LOVE IS AUTOMATIC ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM! You just changed my life. I definitely spent the past decade thinking it was zetus SApetus.

    I request you write a post devoted to Disney Channel Original Movies. Start with the one where Lindsay Lohan's doll turns into Tyra Banks, then move on to that one where the kid whose dad is Uncle Joey turns into a fish, don't forget about Brink! (how could you forget Erik von Detten?!) and you can wrap it all up with the one where the baby Lawrence brother is a deaf wrestler (I think). No High School Musical, though. Way too obvious.

    Maybe I should just write the post. Or maybe the blogosphere needs a Disney Channel Original Movie link.

    I would go re-read all of your blog posts but I'm too busy falling down the YouTube rabbit hole of Zenon clips.

  6. SUPERNOVA GIRL!

    My love for Zenon has no end.

    You had a pretty awesome year!

    I'm with the girl above me.....I'm trying to think of something else to say but all I can think about is Zenon. And Brink. And Smart House. And Johnny Tsunami.

  7. Last year I won "Elevated Friend Status" from Jordan Fouts at our White Elephant gift exchange. Much to my delight, the first perk I received was an email with youtube links to all the best Zenon moments. Best. Email. Ever.

    And that pink miniskirt she wore! P E R F E C T I O N.
