Like any year 2012 had its ups as well as its downs, but all in all when the tidbits are added up it was a great year. As the year draws to a close I started thinking of how fast this year has gone by. I’m not sure if I am just getting older or if life has just been so busy, but in a blink of an eye we went from January to December.
In no particular order tidbits that stand out are as follows:
Trip to Mexico to celebrate our 30th birthdays. Being only 11 days apart and having Valentine’s Day smack in the middle makes for a very busy February. Sipping piña coladas on the beach, reading and relaxing was the perfect way to begin our thirties.
Buying a condo was a HUGE highlight. I cannot believe we are home owners!
My first rodeo! And I think the highlight of the rodeo was the mutton busting.
Passing the PMP exam. This test had been on the to-do list for years. It was nice to not only check it off the list, but to have passed the first time taking the exam … Plus my dad will finally stop bugging me about when I am going to take the test!! :)
Thanksgiving – As my favorite holiday it is no surprise that Thanksgiving is one of the highlights from this year. Like every year the week/end was jam packed with food, wine, family, friends and laughter.
First Christmas Eve alone with my husband in our new place. I’ve always spent Xmas Eve with my friends/family or with the in-laws. This year we flew out to Kansas City on Christmas Day. We went back and forth about sending the evening with friends, but in the end decided to keep it low key. I loved staying home and celebrating just the three of us (the husband, me and of course Sophi).
2012 was a very fun year! But now there is much to look forward to in 2013 and it isn’t even here yet!
So far there are a few fun things on the docket for 2013 …
- My sister is coming to visit for a few days. I am even taking a day off so we can have a sister day! It isn’t often we get time just the two of us anymore so I’m super excited for her visit.
- Throwing a baby shower for my girlfriend and then arrival of her son!
- A trip to Seattle to see my friend (HOPEFULLY)
And then of course there is … Surprises! No matter how much of a planner I am life always throws in big and little surprises.
What were your favorite parts of 2012? Any exciting plans for 2013?
Happy New Year!!
