The Best Post of 2012

Well, another year has transpired.  I had a fabulous 2011 and I thought I should summarize some of the greatest happenings.  Those of you who follow this blog will have seen some of them already.  But worry not, there will be a few items I haven't talked about as well.

Here are the things I remember being awesome about 2011:

1. Saw Yosemite National Park for the first time

It became necessary to swallow Yosemite Falls

2. Ate at a buffet in Las Vegas until it hurt.  (Not a recommended strategy, but it was so good.)
3. Tried a genuine Chicago Hot Dog
One of the best hot dogs I've ever had.  
4. Saw the Blue Man Group perform and later dressed as a Blue Man myself

5. Read 29 books for a total of 9,195 pages
6. Stood in one of the Great Lakes (Lake Michigan)
7. Visited Carthage Jail and saw the room where Joseph Smith was martyred
Jared and I look just like Joseph and Hyrum

8. Picked up several new computer languages/skill sets
9. Got 365 days older (this means I survived the entire year)
10. Accomplished 12 items on my bucket list
11. Had a root canal (awesome things aren't always good things)
12. Visited the temple at least once a month and went inside 9 temples I had never visited before
This is the San Diego temple.  It looks like a castle where a princess would live.

13. Stood in the Ocean (Pacific)
14. Lifted a Million Pounds
15. Tried Chocolate Covered Bacon
16. Bought a new house
17. Turned 30 (became old)

As you can see, 2011 was an incredible year.  I hope 2012 will be just as good.  I'm not quite sure exactly what adventures will be included.  I'm not sure if it will be able to measure up.  I'm going to Hawaii in June, so that will be exciting.  But I'm probably not buying a new house so things may not be as crazy.

Either way, I'm sure that the coming year will be amazing.  What did you do in the past year that was exciting?  What are you looking forward to this year?

P.S.  I know this post wasn't amazing but it is the best I've done this year.  I'll try to make sure it isn't the best post for long.


  1. Your year looked pretty great, besides the whole root canal part! Love the Yosemite picture!

  2. It was a good year, but there's reason to believe maybe this year will be better than the last. We are going to have some amazing adventures this year.

  3. Thanks for spending the year with me. I promise to take you on some more trips and I will try to be entertaining.

  4. Yup you had am amazing year. Here's to making the new one just as amazing!

  5. I can't believe I never commented on this! 2011 really was great. Best year ever.
