The year I graduated high school

So yesterday I was listening to my Backstreet Boys pandora station and one of my ALL-TIME favorite songs (and yes I said one of my favorites) started playing. Wondering what song that was? Well, obviously it was this!

 Yes, I admit, I am a Hanson fan. Now before you go running away thinking that this post is all about boybands (although there might be a little more of that...IDK yet), bear with me for a minute. I need to tell you this little story. A few years ago my baby cousin Megan and I were going somewhere and I had my ipod jamming over the radio. MMMBop came on and I was dancing and singing like a fool while Megan sat there staring at me (which is normal haha). What she said next SHOCKED me! She said "Brittany, what IS this song???" I seriously flipped. How could she NOT KNOW what MMMBop was! Now, Megan is 5 years younger than me, so of course she didn't really know who Hanson was.

So, what is my point? Well my little cousin Megan is graduating high school tomorrow and this means it's been 5 years since I graduated high school!!! Insane! So here are some interesting things that happened the year I graduated in 2006.

 Blu-Ray Discs were introduced
Lady Antebellum formed!

ABC hosted it's last NFL game with the Super Bowl XL

Katie Couric became the first female solo anchor of the CBS Evening News

Hannah Montana phenomenon started

Italy won the Fifa World Cup

Sadam Hussein was hanged.
(He's not worthy of a picture)

Bad Day by Daniel Powter was the top song in 2006.
SexyBack was number 9 :)
Grillz was number 12. Who remembers that one?

Pirates of the Caribbean 2 was the top movie.
The top celebrity was Tom Cruise.

George Clooney was voted Sexiest Man Alive

Angelina Jolie was Most Beautiful Person

Taylor Hicks (wait, he was famous for how long??) was voted Hottest Bachelor...
My pick was Jake Gyllenhaal.

And just because I love my bloggy readers,
here is another Jake pic.
You're welcome.

 I'm pretty sure he know's he is SMOKIN HOT in this one.

Now that I have regained my composure (why is Jake so hot???), what are some things you guys remember about the year you graduated???

Has it really been a year?

Last year on May 26 I started this blog so my then boyfriend would be able to stay up with everything going on since he was in New Orleans and I was here in SC. I can't believe it's been that long!! I've been TERRIBLE at keeping up with my blog, but I am just going to keep trying! So, what has happened in the past year? I went to NOLA for a second trip in the beginning of June. I thought it was great. But, then there was the giant breakup I had with Chip. That wasn't fun. A year later and I still occasionally get upset about it. It's a big change when you think you'll spend the rest of your life with someone and then they suddenly change their mind... It was hard! But, I have incredible family and friends that helped me through it. PLUS, because of him I  met some of the most amazing people ever! I absolutely consider them some of my best friends! SO, what else? I had a Twilight birthday party, one of my best friends since I was itty bitty got married, had my keys stolen at work, dressed up as Snooks for halloween, saw another friend (and Murray's godfather) get married, got to see Danielle and her sweet family before Christmas, Murray turned 2 which I never blogged about, we went to Universal Studios in Orlando and had SOO much fun and now here we are in May! My sweet little cousin is graduating from high school this week (It's been 5 years since I graduated!!), we're going to DC this weekend, and I already have my next New Orleans trip planned for August!

So, hopefully I can get this blog to be a regular thing for me again!! I miss blogging!!!
