Katrina's Best and Worst of 2007


So, here it is, again. The end of another year. For some reason, I'm really excited about the start of 2008. Maybe its all my great calendars that I get to put up. ~shrugs~ Well, who knows, but I thought I'd reminisce about the past year that was pretty much the best of times, and the not-so best of times for me.
(I was gonna say "worst", but that would be laying it on way too thick.)


Let's start with the worst and just get those over with:

5. Getting sick in in-laws basement in Utah not once, but twice.
4. Baby's broken arm.
3. Three months w/o a camera just to learn that we were using the wrong batteries!
2. Car rolling down Rochelle's driveway and street with all the kids still in it!
1. Hubby's wreck and subsequent replacement of car. Yuck.

OK, enough of that...

And onto Katrina's Top 5 Best Things of 2007

5. Visiting Julie and other friend in Boise for almost an entire week!
(I have no pictures, cause we were having too much fun!)
4. Visiting my sister and helping her daughter shop for and then alter her prom dress. It was a promise I made to my niece when she was 6, and I was happy to fulfill it!

3. Butchart Gardens

I don't think I'll ever get sick of looking at that picture!

2. Decorating the girls' new rooms!



And, drumroll please...

1. Of course, my trip to England!









So, here's to 2008! Let's hope it's heavy on the joy and light on the heartache! Happy New Year, y'all!

Happy New Year! Sounds like this one was pretty good with a few bumps. I'm sure next year will be even better!

Tee hee! Who is that fruit-cake on your shoulders? I laugh just thinking about that moment. And sort of shudder...

Great post! I loved reading about all those things. I can't believe it's been almost a year since you guys went to England. What a wonderful trip. I still can't get over the battery thing. I must say I've done things like that, too. Don't feel too bad. ;)

Thanks for stopping by my blog so I could find yours! I love the lists. It's good to look back on the both the good and bad! Your girls are darling.

Aren't you on Michelle's Goodreads friends list? She's the one who got me to join it.

I think I am on Michelle's list. Though, I'm not sure how exactly to use GoodReads...

Your trip to England looked so fun! What a great idea- best and worst of 2007- don't be surprised if you see a copycat list similar to yours somewhere else...

I love the girls' rooms! They look fabulous and so fun to hang out in!

Happy New Year!

love the list... Great idea!

My fav. is of course the "drumroll" ... I will never ever forget that trip. Magical doesn't even capture how absolutely, fabulously, fantastic that trip was.

Definately. It goes in the books as a fav. of 2007as well.

(OMGosh! "Flat Darcy" I'm dying again already!)
