In the words of Madeline, are you even a blogger if you don't do a end of year wrap up? I have been doing these for many years on my various blogs. It's always fun for me to write these and to remember how blessed I really was in the last year. 

January
First New Years Eve kiss!
And I scared everyone in my life since apparently this looks like an engagement picture? Whatever, guys.
February
First Valentines with Mark and a weekend at Island Park
A non-bearded Mark is one I do NOT appreciate.

Also, I sent Sister Prescott off to Canada.


March
Spring Break/ Couples Retreat 2013
Along with this trip came "The Toilet Incident of 2013" which is only talked about in hushed, reverent tones now.
April
My Active Greek Life came to a close...
Right as I won the Greek Ambassador award. 
May
Started working at Aquaholics and sent three roommates off on missions and two roommates off to get married. I am the lone ranger who made no life progress, apparently. 
June 
Welcomed Joshua to our family and learned I am so not ready to be a Mom.
My parents left me alone with Taylor (9) Maddie (7) and Brooklyn (2) for an entire week. While they were gone our air conditioner broke, our bathroom flooded, my aunt had a heart attack and I had my most severe anxiety attack to date which is really saying something. So this is my selfie when my parents called saying they were staying on vacation a few extra days. Worst week of my entire life. 

July
BBY Camp
It was a FANTASTIC experience but I have also never been so exhausted in my entire life. 
August
MY BIRTHDAY! 
Yuba Lake Vacation
The birth of this blog!
Josh got blessed on my birthday. Thunder stealer. Sheesh.
Mark went ahead and got a freaking concussion on my birthday. It was terrifying so I called 911. 


So I bought these for myself...so what? 
We have purposely hid these pictures from social media because we were pretttty grotesque. But if 2013 taught me anything, it's YOLO...or something.









I didn't shower for a week. It was glorious. 

September
True Aggie'd!
And apparently (well according to social media and that's all that matters right) that's all I did besides suffer through an entire month of waking up at 5:45 AM.
October
Went to Boston! Stayed in a hostel! Oh man!


November
Mark and I celebrated one year, one year! Wowza wowza.
I know, cutest couple of the year.
December
Passed A Praxis, Failed a Praxis.
You win some, you lose some.


There is a couple things I had hoped I would accomplish in 2013 but alas, they did not happen but I can say with absolute assurance they will be happening this year whether it kills me or not.
