2013 Roundup

Out of boredom and a severe lack of creativity, I decided to do one of these awful questionnaires that float around tumblr. I thought it had some good questions that helped me look back throughout the year. If you feel like doing this yourself, feel free to copy and paste it!
  • 1:What did you do in 2013 that you’d never done before? Visited Portland!
  • 2:Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year? I think so, and no. I’m going to constantly try to better myself and do good.
  • 3:Did anyone close to you give birth? A friend did, yes. And her baby is the cutest ever.
  • 4:Did anyone close to you die? Nope. No one close to me ever dies. I never get the chance to put a cute funeral look together!
  • 5:What countries did you visit? Canada. You don’t need to remind me how lame that is.
  • 6:What would you like to have in 2014 that you lacked in 2013? A puppy and more self confidence.
  • 7:What dates from 2013 will remain etched upon your memory, and why? October 5th only because it was my birthday and I had an extremely fun bash. Also May 4th because that’s when I took my husband to Disney World πŸ™‚

    • Awesome! Do it! Lol I keep forgetting that most of my readers are Canadian. Whoopsie! Nah, it just feels like home now so it’s not as exciting as it used to be! Happy New Year Bree! πŸ˜€

    • Hah I know. I’m being all nice and stuff. I need to remind people that I also have a sweet side…buried very deep beneath my ice cold heart.

      And yes! I need a puppy!

  1. Sounds like you had a full year! Did you love Portland? I’m an Oregonian and LOVE it here, so my heart skipped a beat when I read that. πŸ™‚

    I hope you get that puppy and a dose of confidence…. I think those two things make awesome accessories because puppies are awesome and with the right amount of confidence, it doesn’t matter what you wear, people just want to be near you. πŸ™‚

    Happiest 2014

    • I really liked Portland! I wouldn’t mind living in Lake Oswego some day…! It’s tough for me to choose between Portland and Seattle though! πŸ˜‰

      I think I’m pretty good in the confidence area, but sometimes I doubt myself–and that needs to stop! Thanks for your wise words! You’re too kind. I think having a puppy aka a permanent best friend would boost my self confidence though!
      Hope you had a very happy New Year Lindsey! πŸ˜€

  3. I love these things. I’m glad the internet exists otherwise I’d probably be like a real-life stalker type. I’m just so dang nosy. Anyway, loved the list and your answers… and ending with que sera sera is the best. It’s the answer to everything. Happy 2014!

    • Haha me too! I’ve always loved reading people’s responses to questions. I’m just glad this one wasn’t too long. They can be exhausting sometimes! Thanks lady! So glad you liked my answers! I love que sera sera πŸ˜€ Happy New Year Rara!

    • Ahh why thank you. Not as washed out, not as shocked. I figured I should change it for the new year. Good thing it’s a 5 year old picture. Happy New Year!

    • Hmm that is a good question. Something tells me he’s sitting alone in a dark corner, rocking back and forth because he misses blogging so much. He’s probably off enjoying life. But I do miss him. Kinda. πŸ™‚
