As 2011 draws to a close, this blogger wishes to take a journey down memory lane. The following will involve the serious, the PPBH-pertinent and the utterly ridiculous. Will you join me?

Without further ado, here is the year in review…

January
Kim Kardashian posts about Kris Humphries for the first time. Um, we all know how that ended.

February
Two Utahns make the finals for the Doritos “Crash the Super Bowl” ad contest. And one of them walks away with the $1 million prize. Not too shabby.

March
As part of the team on the I-15 CORE project, PPBH participates in the “Super Bowl of bridge moves.” It was a magical, if not chilly, evening.

April
An estimated 2 billion people tune in to watch the marriage of Prince William and Catherine Middleton at Westminster Abbey. Too bad they didn’t sell any ad space.

May
PPBH keeps a “hairy upper lip” whilst celebrating Mustache May. “Pin the Mustache on the Partner” anyone?

June
UDOT encourages children to “Think Safety” around construction zones. Especially during the summer months.

July
Febreeze disgusts its way to the top of the most memorable new ads of July. View the top ten here.

August
There’s only one, one, one, one, onnnnnnnne Lagoon! Best. Day. Ever.

September
NBA lockout anyone? No? How about this?

October
RIP Steve Jobs. Plus, Sprint pays handsomely for rights to the iPhone 5.

November
We came. We saw. We smoothied. And maybe we bowled a little bit too.

December
Advertising Age names its Top 10 Viral Campaigns of 2011 (may the force be with you) and Top 10 Twitter Trends of 2011 (I guess everyone really does have that Bieber Fever). And PPBH presents its own 2011 picks, in tv, music, movies and books.

I think if I were to sum up this year in one word, it would be this: winning.

Happy New Year, everyone!
