Excuse me for my absence. My office closed for a week and a half and I used that time to watch 5 seasons of Parenthood. I'm a week late, but in this world, that's rather typical of me so lets take a look back at what 2014 had in store for me.
I went to Cabo on a girls vacation. We made friends with pirates, saw lots of whales, went snorkeling and made new friends every night in the hot tub. It just the trip we all needed as the Polar Vortex hit Minnesota.
I felt the need to cook a whole lot this month. I assume it was because of the Polar Vortex and being stuck inside and needing to add an extra layer of blubber so I wouldn't freeze to death. Creamy Garlic Pasta, Homemade Beef Stew, Real Potato 'Chips', Baked Ziti.
I gave up blogging 'regularly' and started my Weekly Review posts.
I started a new job! I also made Easter brunch for my family and friends all by myself. I probably over did it on the amount of food, but I loved setting up the table, cooking the food and most importantly, eating the food.
I had my very first Giveaway on this here blog and enjoyed a nice, warm Memorial weekend at the cabin.
I attended a POPSugar event at the Minneapolis Farmers Market.
I moved in to my little apartment, enjoyed a long weekend at the cabin for the 4th. We also had our second annual cousins weekend which turned out to be even more crazy than the year before.
I turned 30 which was way less life changing than I had expected.
I became debt free and my cousin Erin got married!
I went to my first ever Gopher football game.
I decided to coach a club volleyball team and I got to go to the Garth Brooks concert!
Well...December has proven to be a lot busy but with not much excitement. We had Christmas, which was lovely as always, volleyball went in to full swing and my free time has been occupied by spending it with a person of the opposite sex.
2015...because I can see in to the future...Is going to be a busy first few months. Volleyball tournaments begin, vacation is just 33 days away, and...well, I guess that's really all there is, BUT those tournaments take up a lot of time, two will be out of town, a couple are three days long and then there will be make up practices. 2015, I say to you Bring. It. On.
