Happy New Year — 2012

January 5, 2012Devon No Comments »

Happy New Year! For New Year’s Eve, a group of use went to Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck. If you know Dallas, that’s the big rotating ball restaurant at the top of Reunion Tower. The meal was a fabulous 7 course prefix with Kobe beef and lobster as the main entree. We started eating at 10:30 pm and finished with dessert and a glass of champagne at midnight — just in time to watch the fireworks off in the distance. It truly was an enchanting evening. I have now been in Dallas for over two years — so much has happened. According to my 2011’s blog entries, here are the highlights:

I was looking back at my New Year’s 2011 post — my New Year’s resolution for 2011 was to finish my 2010 resolutions. Lets see how I did:

  • Lose 10 pounds (Nope, maybe this year)
  • Try and reduce self-inflicted stress in my life (Yes and no, but I still need to work on it)
  • Stop relying on spellcheck/Google (I did good for a few, but still relying)
  • Pay off all credit cards (YES! By June 2011 I had all credit cards payed off)
  • Establish an emergency fund (Not so much — because of the above, HAHA)

Looks like I still have some work to do. But this year is already shaping up. I have plans to see Kathy Griffin live on stage in January, a mini-vacation to Austin in January, a mini-vacation to San Antonio in February, Passing section D of the LARE in March, my 27th Birthday in April, and a full 8-day vacation to Disney World in June. That takes us to the half way point of 2012. The rest of the year is still up in the air. Happy New Year!
