2012 in Review

Pals, it’s that time of year again. For what you ask? Well, for a year-end recap of course!

Ohh ya you betcha! (oops, my Minnesotan’s showing… & we’ve only lived here 16 mo, this place is contagious)

Anyway, I like to write these because it’s fun to look back and see all can happen in just 365 days.

So, if you missed last year’s you can find it here (spoiler alert: we got married, moved to Mpls,+ other fun things!)

Otherwise, here’s our review of 2-0-1-2.

Picture 2




We moved from a studio in the city to a one-bedroom in the ‘burbs

We began to furnish our apartment thanks to Craigslist (scoring not once, but twice)

We celebrated 1 year of marriage and 9 years together

Welcomed 2 new babies to our extended family (a niece + a cousin joined our other nephew, niece, + cousin)

Mr.C got a promotion and became the 2nd Shift Shipping Lead

I turned 23, left my job at the BNW Comedy Theatre, and started working full time at a recruiting firm

We began to tackle our debt + decided to document it on the blog as a series



We explored a lot of Mpls & St. Paul when our friends from our hometown came to visit

checked out to some fun local festivals + hot spots

Went to the Minnesota State Fair for the first time

I went on a girlfriend getaway to New Orleans with my bestie E (Part 1, 2, 3, and 4)

and attended my first Minnesota Blogger Meet Up



That time when…

We tested our DNA

 I recorded my accent

thrifted and thrifted and thrifted more

We found the best easy dinner recipe ever

 KT the RD shared how to enjoy what you eat & get healthy

I partnered with Apartment Guide for their Blast From the Past project


Happy New Year everyone!!

    • Aw sorry to make you homesick – New Orleans was way cool though! Loved all the history. And you’ll get around to some hotspots in mpls/stpaul eventually. We’ve been taking our time too but we try to do one new thing every couple months. Gotta keep finding places to take visitors when they come aren’t the spoon + MOA!

    • it was definitely fun! loved the history too :)

      blog meet-ups are cool, esp. because you can nerd out about blogging stuff with other people who actually get it. you should definitely go to one (or create one even!) if you get the chance.

    • Right?! Fran at Being Fran(k) came up with a great format! And yes it’s been a great year – yours looked good too. Here’s hoping 2013 is rockin too. Thanks for stopping by!
