2013 at The Herron Nest, Not Too Shabby

I know that I’m publicly sharing this post but I have to admit that the reason I wrote it would be more self serving. Reminiscing about 2013 and thinking about all the great moments and happy memories that we created makes me well-up a little but also makes me proud of hubs, myself and Ab. There were a fair share of ups and downs (we’ll get to those) but an overall great year. Here are the highlights by month:

{January} NYE Spaghetti

  • Rang in the new year with our little girl at LaRosa’s, there was spaghetti sauce EVERYWHERE! I remember that we actually tried getting into a semi-nice restaurant first, which was a joke.
  • Celebrated George’s birthday
  • George lands a new position at Kroger and is uber happy
  • Ab started swimming lessons

{February}

  • The only thing I can think of was really training for the 1/2 marathon
  • And Valentine’s day
  • Does anything else happen during this month?

{March} 

  • I participated in the Cinciditarod which was one of the biggest mistakes of 2013 – it SUCKED!
  • George and I saw an awesome Beatles tribute band at Belterra Casino
  • I started a weight-loss transformation that changed my body, our family’s health and made me a different person (after the sucky Cinciditarod)
  • We started tearing up our kitchen which turned into THE major project of the year (or so I thought at the time).

{April} BeachBaby

  • Florida vacation
  • Our first trip to Disney
  • Visiting with Aunt Sue and Uncle Jack in Florida
  • Celebrated my parent’s 36th wedding anniversary.

{May} Pig Ladies

  • I made my 40 pound goal
  • George and I saw Willie Nelson in concert, 4 rows back!
  • George coached the Butler County Challenger Red Sox during the 2013 Butler County State Tournament – it was hot but he did a fantastic job.
  • and apparently got pregnant!
  • Celebrated my in-laws anniversary and started to share the news of my pregnancy with family
  • THEN found out my brother-in-law and sister-in-law were also pregnant and due 5 weeks before us

{August}
