Where have I been you ask?

Oh my, once again I have lost tough with this blog.  Maybe this year will be different?  Hopefully I will post more than ONCE A YEAR!  {how embarrassing}  Since last April, Matt and I have visited Maui, Hawaii.  We had such a great time - first vacation just for ourselves since our wedding.  We miss it every day!!

After we came back, we traveled to Montana to see family and friends.  The reason for our trip was to attend a graduation party for my dear friend, Rachel.  She {finally} graduated college and  that was a great reason to visit/celebrate!!  She is now going to grad school at George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

In between then and November we had lots of visitors, my family, Matt's family, our friend Katelyn and also earlier in the year we had our friends Hillary and Bobby visit.  It is always fun having familiar faces around us and having a great time!!  

I have also been working out and trying to get into better shape.  It's been fun cooking with Matt and trying new recipes.  We started the Paleo diet in November.  I love it, but Matt doesn't like to work we have to put into every meal.  Men.  Instant gratification  :)  I am down a few #'s and my muscles are getting stronger, so I will try to be as Paleo as possible, I love it!

At the beginning of December I took a trip to Washington, D.C to visit Rachel.  It was such an epic adventure.  I had never flown alone - but it went just fine.  {Had to calm my nerves a few times}  Our list of activities were as follows: shop, eat, National Christmas Tree Lighting {Yes!!  We won the lottery}, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals concert {best ever!!}, monument sight seeing, shop in Georgetown, eat at Georgetown Cupcakes {yum!!}, ride the metro {that was fun to do}, and try out a "Diners, Drive-in's, and Dives" restaurant.  We had so much fun, I would love to go back and do it all again.  Christmas is both our favorite time of year, it was so cool to see the town decorated in Christmas!! 

After I got back from D.C.  -  it was time to head to Montana for Christmas.  {My Favorite Time of Year}  Yippee!!  It was a great trip - just like every year.  Spent time with friends, family, and of course hitting up out favorite restaurants that we miss so much!!

Now it's 2013 - just in time for my birthday month!!  I had such a fun birthday weekend...had some great friends over for dinner, Seahawks played {and lost} and went to a friends house to watch the game, and purchased some ski boots {I'm in for it now...}

Matt and I did go skiing the next weekend and I had such a great time!!  I hadn't been since before we were married {6.5 years ago!} I was so nervous I would be bad...turns out I got my groove back right away!!  I was so tired by the end of the day...and sore the next couple of days.  Haha!!  Totally worth it.

Now to the end of January.  What will be next?  Stay tuned....

{Promise I will be better at this...}
