2012

Another year is about to end and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t sad to see it go. 2012’s been amazing. Here are a few of my favorite moments and memories.

In January, I starting volunteering for Free Arts, saw the Bears lose to the Vikings and spent a lot of free time playing baking and playing bingo.

In February, Rae and I hosted a lingerie sale at Mighty Swell. It was, by far, one of my favorite events we’ve ever put on.

In May, I saw Ronnie Spector at the Girls Got Rhythm Fest and my best broads and I paid a visit to Kansas City. We had a fabulous time thrifting, eating (barbecue), sitting by the pool and hitting the local honky tonks.

In June, the prettiest girl in the world moved in with me and together with my hon’s family, we road-tripped to Texas to celebrate his grandparents’ 65th wedding anniversary. I ate a lot of Whataburger, spent a dreamy day at the beach and found with my dream (trailer) house.

In July, Rae got hitched (prettiest wedding of all time), I saw a bunch of amazing shows and accidentally met this guy.

In September, we made our annual trek to the State Fair, took in a Willie Nelson show down in Mankato and kept on finding new ways to make nachos.

In October, my honey and I went to our favorite country music venue to see Moe Bandy and later in the month trekked to Fargo for a record show (and some thrifting).

In November, I saw George Jones, Bruce Springsteen and Loretta Lynn within a period of eight days (!!!) and I turned 30, a milestone I celebrated with, what else? Cookies.

And last but not least, December. It was definitely a busy month at work, but it ended on a lovely note with a full week-plus off.

All in all, it’s been a pretty good year! I sure can’t wait to see what 2013 brings! I hope you all have wonderfully relaxing New Year’s days.
