Good Bye 2013, Hello 2014

I have absolutely no idea where the last 365 days went. Here's where at least 12 of them disappeared off to.

I got a juicer for Christmas and thought it would be a fun idea to juice for a month. You can check out how far I made it on that here.
I ditched the juice cleanse and finally realized it was 2013. The year fro-yo was invented and shops popped up all over the universe. B.T.Dubbs, who eats fro-yo in February in Minnesota? A true Minnesotan, that's who.

Mom, Pop and I took a vaca to Nuevo Vallarta and had a grand ol time. I would love to go back again some day.

I completed my first and last (so far) half marathon. I finished in 2:29:00. It wasn't my best effort, but I did it and I completed all 13.1 miles.

The whole family went to Lutsen for Pat and Summers wedding. Everyone took an extra day off and we made a mini vaca out of it.

Kayla, Kari and I continued on with our sister dinners and went to Fat Lorenzo's for pizza. I highly suggest going there in the summer for pizza, gelato and a walk around the lake.

The McNeally cousins all gathered up at Big Sand Lake for a cousin weekend. #Yolo turned into the theme of the weekend and everyone had a great time...until I couldn't go 30 minutes without getting sick, and my cousin had an emergency at home with her son. Next year will go a tad more smooth, I hope.

I volunteered with Twin Cities in Motion for the first time at the Twins 5K. I got to work on the field which was such a neat experience. I had to guard the home dugout and got to say 'hey' to a few players that came in! I think I'd definitely volunteer for this run again in the future. To any fellow runners, I suggest volunteering at a race. It's a great way to give back and say thanks to all the volunteers that pull these races together.

I road tripped it up to Fargo for Laura and Ben's wedding! The bride was absolutely stunning.

October brought on another road trip and wedding in Milwaukee for Bridget and Andrew. One of the best weddings I have ever attended.

Kari had a bunch of her friends up at the cabin for a Fall weekend getaway. We played a lot of giant Jenga, watched plenty of football and drank copious amounts of Zap!

The month flew by in the blink of an eye. So many holiday celebrations and family gatherings. A time to reflect on the past year and be thankful for everything that I have, good or bad.

 Happy New Year!
