HAPPY NEW YEAR: Highlights of 2012

Happy New Year everyone!
I hope you all enjoyed ringing in the new year with your loved ones. We enjoyed ringing in the new year wearing our yoga/pajama pants. It was lazy and perfect.

2012 was such an amazing year for me, so I really couldn't move forward into 2013 without looking back on the past year.

I married my strong and handsome Señor
      I know that I was supposed to write a post about my wedding, but I would just end up sitting in front of my computer thinking about the day and not writing about it. You see the day was so special to me that writing a post to share my special day wouldn't even be a close reflection of how amazing our wedding day was. I'm sure i'll still write a wedding post, but for now I'll just share a few photos. 

Shed Dog
In February we gained an unexpected new member of our family. The Señor and I had talked about owning a dog before, and we both felt it was a bad idea. We assumed that we would be bad parents and wouldn't be able to find enough time to spend with the dog. However, that all changed when Shed dog came into our lives and adopted us. For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you already know how obsessed I am with this dog. I'm pretty sure I take a photo of her everyday. She is such a ham. For the full story on Shed dog (click here).

Hiked the La Luz Trail
Since I started this blog it has been a goal of mine to hike up the La Luz trail. I would run in the foothills and just stare up at the point where the La Luz trail ends and contemplate hiking up the mountain. I always thought it was kind of sad that I had lived here so long and hadn't done it. After my bachelorette party in May, the Señor and I hiked up the mountain. Shed dog led the way and we were up the mountain in about 4 hours. Hiking up this trail sparked up my goal of running up the trail. When I will actually do this is yet to be determined, but the challenge has me excited. :) 

Nursing School
The start of the summer 2012 semester was the beginning of my journey into nursing school. It's been a roller coaster of emotions, frustration, and fun. Sounds crazy right? It really is.  However, the challenges and the long coffee driven nights will all be worth it in the end. Currently I'm 1/2 way to becoming a nurse and I can't wait to write RN at the end of my name. 

Running (I'm back in the game) 
Thanks to my friend Cassy, I got back into the running game. She convinced me to sign up for a Halloween fun run and I got hooked again. I dressed up in a Witch costume and ran a simple 5k. That was all the kick I needed to get back into running. I did attempt a running streak during the holiday season, but it wasn't that successful for me considering I got a little sick right after Christmas. Oh well, It was nice attempt. I'll most likely keep trying the running streaks until I complete one correctly. I'm not quite sure what running has in store for me this year, but I'm thinking a few more fun runs and maybe another half? My handsome husband just bought me some amazing new running shoes for Christmas. We shall see where these bright beauties take me! 

One of my best friends got married
2012 was the BEST year to get married! Okay, I'm a little bit bias, but still. It was so much fun having my good friend Amalia as a bridesmaid in my wedding, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. Last week we traveled to the rainy NW to take part in her beautiful Seattle wedding.  She looked absolutely classic and the ceremony was stunning! 

You sure were fabulous 2012!
Cheers to a LUCKY 2013!


  1. Maybe we should both commit to finally blogging about the actual wedding (rather than the prep!). I keep thinking I'm gonna come off as really sappy if I talk about what a great day it was an how thankful I am that so many people came out.

    Looks like it was a busy, but fun year. Here's to an awesome 2013.

  2. Hey Laura! I'm interested in featuring your wedding on the NM Wedding Blog! I just featured Teresa Romero today with a podcast interview and article and would love to feature one of "her" brides! Check it out!

    1. Hi Susana,
      I absolutely loved hearing the interview this morning. Your feelings on Teresa's shop were exactly how I felt when I walked into her beautiful space. The interview brought up such good memories of the dress making process for me and how personal and fun it was.

      I am so honored that you want to feature our wedding on your wonderful blog! Please let me know what information I can provide for you. We are so excited!!! :)
