My (and your) Favorite Posts in 2013

People. 2013 is nearly over.  I can’t believe it. I was scrolling through old posts and I was looking at posts in March that I felt I just barely blogged; crazy how time flies. 2013 was a good year!

Here are some of my favorite posts from the year and some of the most popular among my readers.

I hope you have a fun New Year’s Eve! I rarely make any plans on NYE and am in bed long before midnight but some friends invited John and me over for dinner and games. I’m so excited! I feel like such a party animal. 😉 I’ll probably drink some green tea before heading over; otherwise, I’ll never last til midnight! 

Do you love NYE or think it’s overrated? What are your plans this year?

    My husband & I just returned home today from visiting our families for Christmas, and we have (somewhat foolishly) agreed to host a small party tomorrow night — let the frantic cleaning & preparing begin! 🙂

    Happy New Year!

    No big plans here we are either going to stay in or maybe hang out with a few close friends. Nothing too crazy – but that is OK by me!

    I love the idea of ringing in the new year, but I hate the pressure to stay up until midnight. I love my sleep and I love starting of the New Year feeling awesome. I typically head out on a long cross country ski and it’s so peaceful.

    We are staying in and I’m cooking us a nice dinner. One of our best friends is in the area and will be joining us. Cheers to 2014!!

    I loved all those posts and loved being reminded of them.

    NYE – I have always thought it was overrated.

    This year I went to a house party, which was fun. But last year, I was the DD for my sister and her friends, and waking up without a hangover on January 1st was amazing. I think that may be my plan for next year! Maybe just one glass of champagne …

      I thought about that when I woke up yesterday – that I shouldn’t have drank. Or at least stuck to just one! Blech.
