It's time to bid adieu to 2011

I've had a rather boring year, so I won't bore you with every detail...

I started life post-college.

I went to Mexico with a guy who now hates my guts.

I held a crocodile/alligator.  
I have no idea what the difference is, and don't care.
I HATE reptiles. 

I rode in a submarine.

I took a mind numbingly boring job at a Bank, 
where I got paid to not use my brain.

I quit the job at the Bank, 
in hopes that I still had brain cells left.

A job at the Motorsports Dealership fell into my lap.
I fell in love with my job.

I FINALLY traded in my Taurus and got a Jeep.

I scored some amazing tickets to a baseball game 
(on my birthday).

I did a radio interview.

I started my MBA.

I went to New York City again. 

I joined a gym.

I went skydiving again.

I quit my job at the dealership.
I loved the job;
however, I didn't love the way I was treated.

I went to San Francisco for surgery.

We had seven foster kids come through our home this year
(and still have three of them).

Until next time, 
The Intelligent Blonde


  1. Told ya I would read it! booya!

    Anddd I have to say, NOT BORING at all... 7 foster kids?? Mexico, New York, skydiving, AND a submarine? Geeze... busy lady!

    Cheers to the New Year!! :)


  2. Wow, you have done so much this year! I think it's great that you quit the job at the bank. Why waste your talents?

  3. I think our definitions of boring are completely different. I can't believe you've gone skydiving...and more than once! That's one thing I could never do!!

    {And I'm definitely up for a button swap! Just let me know when :)}
    Happy New Year pretty girl!! xoxo

  4. If you think you had a boring year, I'd hate for you to see all the nothing I did this year!!!! Lol.

    Happy New Year!!!!

  5. I love your honesty. 'I went to Mexico with a guy that now hates me guts.' haha

    Love hearing that you had 7 foster kids come through your home this year. Making the world a better place, one child at a time :)

  6. "Rather boring year"? I'd like to see what an 'exciting year' looks like for you! Skydiving, trips to Mexico and New York, and providing a home for foster kids...I wouldn't say that's a boring year at all!! :)

    Happy New Year to you!! :)

  7. Aww thanks ladies! Just made my day :)
    I hope all of you have a great New Year's Eve!

  8. This post just made my 2011 seem very, very dull.

    I hope your 2012 is just as awesome!

  9. doesn't sound boring to me! sounds like you have done so much...i can't believe you went skydiving more than once...i couldn't/wouldn't do it even once!

  10. Your year sounds anything but boring to me! I hope my 2012 is as awesome as your 2011!

  11. Ok, I IMMEDIATELY clicked over - SO glad I did! We do have a lot in common though I have three pups, not kids - kudos to you for opening your house and your heart!! Looking so forward to reading more, darlin!!
