2012 in review

on December 31, 2012

I’ve been thinking about this blog post for several days… usually starting with the question “What the heck happened in 2012?” … honestly – nothing majorly sticks out at first glance…. and I’m okay with that! I’d say 2012 was a really good year — not superb, not terrible — and you know what, I’ll take it 🙂

2012 Moments:

  • The Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center Gala – Feb 2012 – I am on the Board of Directors for this non-profit, and I was a big part of the Gala committee (and my Dad was the chairman) – we pulled off an absolutely amazing and beautiful event at the Hall of Springs on Valentine’s Day weekend – and we raised about $40,000.



  • We finally bought our “real” dining room table after searching for … oh, I dont know … 18mos?
  • I finally turned in all my paperwork for my National Certification in March 2012, and added “NCSP (Nationally Certified School Psychologist) to my credentials
  • April 2012: Participated in the “Diamond Dash” in Albany — treasure hunt through Downtown Albany – pair that answered the most questions right ended up with a diamond ring from Frank Adams jewelers — and there were other prizes too… I think we came in 6th. Best date day EVER — we had so much fun and covered a whole bunch of miles
  • May 2012: My 30th birthday, and I ran my first race since high school with my co-workers — the 5K CDPHP workforce challenge — reignited my love of racing
  • June 2012: Zac Brown Band concert, Fiona’s 1st birthday, our family vacation to Willamsburg, VA with my parents, the Georgians, and us, our 4 year anniversary and our creation of our raised bed planter

  • July 2012 – father/daughter Yankee game
  • August: started this blog, ripped apart some of our deck, grew some veggies, signed up for my first Foodie PenPals
  • Sept: P’s birthday – traveled to his parent’s house in Cape Cod, saw Darius Rucker (best concert ever!)

  • Oct: searched for candy corn oreos, made candy corn vodka,  dressed Fiona as a bumble bee, and raked lots of leaves!
  • November: day trip to VT, participated in the LeanGreenBean Nov challenge, saw Wicked (again),  hosted our first ThanksgivingIMG_5112
  • December: did our activities advent calendar, decked the halls, got totally hooked on #Elf4Health

As I said at the start – definitely a successful year! In between all that, there were lots of laughs, new recipes, trips to Target, and yes, even some arguments, tears, and cursing — I’m happy with how the year panned out and all the changes I’ve made!! I’m so excited to see what 2013 has in store!

Wishing you a very happy 2013 from Read, Run, Repeat 😀
