2012 Was a Good Year…

Posted Dec 31 2012 10:00am

Hello and Happy New Year’s Eve!

2012 was a fantastic, albeit crazy year. I hate that there are so many things left un-updated on here, so I thought it might be fun to do a little recap post. I recently read The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin,(a great book! You should definitely read it!) inspiring me to write LOTS of New Year’s Resolutions, some of which I will share with you next week. One of my 2013 resolutions is to blog more here, so I hope you will keep me to that promise!

Some of my 2012 highlights included…

* Moving out of our home of 3 years
*Turning 28
*Celebrating our 6 year “dating” anniversary.
* My Bridal Shower!
* Our Wedding <3
*Our honeymoon to Hawaii –> I still owe you a post for this one!
* with my Dad.
* Blue-Eyed Dad starts a blog !
*Running the Atlantic City Marathon with my Dad.
*Opening an Etsy Shop .
*Completing my special education certificate. – This was an old resolution I finally accomplished!

2012 Resolution Check In

I’ll admit I didn’t do as well with some of my resolutions this years as I would have liked. For example, I didn’t achieve any of my running goals. I did, however, make some major progress with some of my professional goals. Plus, I planned and executed the wedding and honeymoon of my dreams. Those memories will last a lifetime and there is plenty of time to “get certified in another specialty” or “break my marathon PR.”

Break 1:30 in the half marathon. Not Achieved.
Break 19 minutes in the 5K. Not Achieved.
Break 40 minutes in the 10k. Not Achieved.
PR in the marathon. Not Achieved.

Build East Coast Bride . Achieved! We recently celebrated our one year anniversary and expanded from wedding blog to blog + boutique with the exciting launch of our etsy shop !
Expand writing career. We will call this one achieved! I blogged about our wedding planning on Engaged & Inspired, built East Coast Bride and recently accepted a paying gig as a regular contributor to DIY Bride.
Get published in a major publication. Not {yet} Achieved.

Build my bootcamp/fitness career. Totally failed on this one. Oops.
Get certified in one more specialty (TRX, SPIN, etc.) Not {yet} Achieved
Tone Arms for Wedding! Achieved!

{Hopes & Dreams}
Wedding Day - YES!
Hawaiian Honeymoon – It was AMAZING!
