2012, what up!

Lots of good things happened in 2011, but I'm so excited to see what 2012 will bring! I really hope the world doesn't end.

Some fun things that happened in 2011 (in random order):

*Bought my first car: "Liv," my 2011 Pepper White Mini Cooper (and sadly, that meant selling my 2000 White Honda Accord EX V6... lots of good memories in that car
*The week when Texas got snow: SO MUCH of it. Was stuck in the house for 5 days! It got pretty boring but was definitely something different!
*Texas meets Germany in NYC: siblings and I went to NYC to meet up with cousins from Germany on a random cold weekend and just ate our hearts out!
*LVJ Jersey Shore birthday bash: My 2 April baby friends and my CRAZY AWESOME birthday celebration. Crawfish boil, flip cup of 20+ people, straight partying & fist pumping for 12+ hours! It was pretty legendary, IMHO. That will be pretty hard to top, I must admit.
*First cruise: Group of 40+ friends and I went on a cruise to Cozumel, Mexico... 5 days on a boat turned out more fun than it initially sounded!
*Dallas Mavericks won the 2011 championship: We went to some games this season... I don't remember much of it... But at least we won!
*Girls trip to San Francisco and Los Angeles: 8 girls in SF and 10+ girls in LA = SO MUCH FREE ALCOHOL

*2nd trip to NYC in one year: A group of some of my closest friends gather to go to NYC, again, to eat and drink our hearts out. Every night was a drunk night.
*3rd annual Fashion for a Passion: Non profit organization ATG pulls off another amazing event to raise money for the needy in Asia! It's so nice to be a part of such a meaningful organization. Please like us on FB!
*Closed on our first home! My fiance and I, after months of searching, finally found a home that we loved. Some months later, after everything we custom picked was put in and the house was finished, we moved in and now it's officially ours!

*Family reunion in Seattle: My cousin got married and we made a family reunion out of it (as usual). So good to see almost ALL my cousins (on mom's side)! 2 more reunions in 2012 bc there are 2 weddings (and one is mine)! :D
*I got engaged! Now, after 3.5 awesome years together, I can officially say I have a "frikkin' ball n chain" at home and mean it! :-)
*Las Vegas trip: Another series of drinking and partying with close friends and cousins from LA! Never a dull moment!

Ahh, so much writing and no pictures! Let's start off the new year with some fun photos!

Forever 21 top, BCBG bandage skirt, Amrita Singh and Forever 21 bangles, Jessica Simpson studded peeptoe pumps, Forever 21 burgundy bow clutch

I don't know what it is with me and black and/or gold for New Year's Eve in the recent years (last year's, and last last year's, and last last last year's at least). Maybe I'll change it up next time. Cheers to big things for 2012!
