Thank you to all of my loyal readers who have helped make my blog what it is today. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for you all.
So here is my year in review!
I ran the 2013 runDisney Half Marathon with my Best Friend Keri and former roomate, Tara.
5 day cruise.
Gabe and I ran the 2013 Rock n Roll St. Pete Half Marathon
Rock n Roll New Orleans Half Marathon.
We took a weekend trip over to Sarasota and ran the Sarasota Half Marathon. Due to an injury, I had to back down to a relay but still enjoyed every moment.
I met Taylor Swift thanks to Darlynn :)
Speaking of Darlynn, she got married!
ING NYC Marathon via lottery
I got engaged, on my Birthday!
I bought two wedding dresses, yes two. We decided to say I Do in New Orleans and I didn't want to wear a long gown afterwords on Bourbon St. I cannot show you my long gown, but here is the short one.
Back to New Orleans we go! Wedding dress shown above was worn during our engagement shoot at Oak Alley Plantation outside of New Orleans. While there, we signed a contract for our reception venue at Hotel Mazarin.
Thanks to Bethenny Frankel, Darlynn and I were able to go to NYC to see her show filmed live. It was a huge surprise which we are both very grateful for.
2013 IFBC (International Food Bloggers Conference) with a group of friends. My highlight of that trip was catching a flying fish at the World Famous Pike Place Fish Market.
We had a second engagement shoot at Busch Gardens at one of their haunted houses for Howl-o-Scream. Zombies, Voodoo Queens and all.
Our friends Lauren and Joe announced they are expecting a baby!
I became a Marathoner!
2013 runDisney Wine and Dine Half Marathon.
Women's Running Series Half Marathon with Keri.
We went back to New Orleans with Gabe's parents which I have not blogged a bit about. We found someone to marry us and went wedding cake tasting. We selected a cake from Haydel's Bakery which I will be sharing in the next few weeks on Wedding Wednesday. In the meantime, here is a new friend I met on a swamp tour.
Leslie and Chris became engaged!
So yes, it was one heck of a year. Three trips to NOLA, two trips to NYC, one trip to Savannah, one trip to Seattle and multiple trips to Disney. Here's to hoping 2014 will be half this great!
