Ringing In A New Year


Happy Tuesday everyone!

I just wanted to finish off my holiday recap! I don’t really want to forget the 2012 holiday season!

Once we were all rested from Christmas, we spent boxing day relaxing! We put away presents and never got out of our pjs! It was glorious!

Ryan and I both actually had to head back to work on the 27th for a short work day. Boo!

On the 28th, I was lucky enough to have the day off so I headed to the city for some boxing week sales! I was in DESPERATE need of a new business suit and I found one for 50% off! Woo hoo! I also got some nice clothes and stuff for our winter trip for a steal!! Everything was 50% off and most was already on sale!


Got this shirt for 4$! Yes!

After spending the morning shopping, I had worked up an appetite! I was so excited that one of my best friends was free to join me for lunch! Bekk and I had a great time chatting about her upcoming nuptials!

On the 29th, Ryan and I got some things done around the house and then got ready for a fun night at friends Josh and Amanda’s. We had a fun night having a delicious pot lucky supper, gift exchange and playing Catch Phrase! I had a blast!

The next morning (30th) I was feeling pretty rough after all that fun and not to mention the 2 bottles of wine…:)

After recovering all morning, I got ready to head to the city with best friends Sharon and Jill for a movie day!

First, we went to see This Is 40 which I loved! It was a hilarious film with the characters of Knocked Up! My only complaint is that I thought Seth Rogan and Katherine Heigle would have made a small appearance.


We then headed to supper at Montana’s where we had the best waiter! I think him and I were kindred spirits! ha ha!

After a delicious meal and a quick stop at Starbucks, we headed to go see another movie, Breaking Dawn Part 2. Yes, you may remember that I have already seen it! But this Twi-head really didn’t mind!

It was back to work on New Years Eve day. In fact, the first 2 hours of my morning was spent at the police station clearing up an outstanding warrant for not appearing in court as a witness…woops. That afternoon, Mom and I headed up to the bank and then went for a LONG lunch! When we got back to work, everyone was gone for the afternoon!

After a quick nap, I got up and got ready to head to town to Elizabeth’s house who is Jill’s mom. We spent the night there having some food, drinks and playing Euchre and Trivial Pursuit! It was so fun and the nice low key night we wanted!


We rang in the New Year and then headed home, straight to bed! We are so not use to staying up late anymore! ha ha!

January 1st, marked 5 years since we began dating. Although we are no longer celebrating that anniversary, we did spend the day together! With an old gift card (saying Ryan would take me to any movie that I want) we headed to the movie theatre to see Les Miserable! I loved the musical but Ryan HATED it! ha ha! I guess it all depends on what you like! He was a great sport though and didn’t complain!

After a full 1-2 weeks of random days off and holiday activities it’s kind of nice to get back to normal schedule! The holidays were wonderful. So memorable and fun but very relaxing as well! It was a great time for Ryan and I to spend time together as well as with family and friends!



  1. I am DYING to see This is 40. Good to know it was funny! And you guys should always do a little something to celebrate your dating anniversary! I was told no presents, but I would still get dinner. Haha

  2. First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thank you!
