Well here we are everyone, ready to ring in 2013. I’m spending tonight with a group of friends at a club in the city – hope it’s fun. You never know with these NYE deals. But I do know that I had a blast last NYE so I am hoping this one is the same!
I’ve decided to do a little StephSnacks ’2012 Year in Review’. Sometimes I like to reflect on what I have been doing or what I’ve accomplished rather than what I haven’t done. Sounds a lot better to me Let’s get started.
Last January I rung in the New Year with a group of friends — including one of my best friends Alexis — at the Hoboken Beer Garden. We had such a good time and I am happy to spend this New Years Eve with Alexis again!
In February I went to Boston with my friend Rebecca. Even though I was over-coming a nasty virus, we were still able to walk basically the entire city and stop by the infamous Mike’s Pastry Shop!
In March, my friend Jenn and her sister came to visit NYC and we all had a really nice night out. I love seeing friends who I haven’t been able to hang out with in a while. It’s such a treat
(Jenn, my friend Analessa, a very dark-haired me, and Jenn’s sister Christina)
In April I tried and failed the Cooler Cleanse after a day and a half. I love juices, in fact I made one in my VitaMix yesterday, but there’s nothing like solid food people.
In May, I spent a long weekend at the beach with my friends Eva and Rebecca. We had such a nice time eating ,drinking, and laying in the sun. I hope we do this again in May! Trips to the beach are my favorite.
In June I went on one of the best vacation’s ever — to Aruba with five of my friends from college. Oh my gosh I can’t even get into how much I wish that trip never ended. Tropical drinks, amazing dinners, long beach days, nights out, and plenty of girl talk. WAHHHH!
In July, my room mate Britt and I held a 4th of July party on our porch filled with burgers, beers, and games and then a few of us went to see fire works.
In August I spent a weekend with Britt and her family and we went tubing! I hadn’t been tubing in so long so it was really nice to be on the water and get the shit scared out of me.
In September, I was lucky enough to be able to do the makeup for a long time family friend’s wedding. Marielle was a beaming bride and I was so happy to be able to partake in the day.
October brought a nice long weekend in Cape Cod with my friends John and Britt. We ate soooooo much food and I was basically in a food coma the entire trip.
In November I wrote one of the most important posts’ of my life. See here. It was an honest look into how an eating disorder can effect someones life during the disorder and what takes place post-disorder. I wanted to shed some light on how painful this can be.
In December, I finally took the plunge and cut my hair! I absolutely love it and am so glad I decided to cut it.
So tonight, as I ring in 2013 with friends I have a lot of hopes for the new year. As for resolutions? I’m not sure. My top two are volunteering (I still haven’t found the exact place I want to volunteer yet) and to seriously consider getting my certification in Personal Training. I’ve flirted with the idea here and there but I need to think about it more seriously.
I hope you all have a beautiful, fun, relaxing, safe New Years Eve and I hope all of your wishes come true in 2013!
