Here’s to writing 2013 on everything and having to cross it out for the next month.

Come on, I know I’m not the only one who does this. Here’s a recap of my life for the past few days.


Sunday was one of those, do-nothing-but-chill types of days. Went to see The Wolf of Wall Street with Kyle and his parents. Really good. Don’t watch it with your grandparents.

I wore my new favorite top from Victoria’s Secret that I got for Christmas. It’s now on sale if you’re interested. It’s a bit long for this short girl (5’1″) but I tucked the bottom under and it looks fine.

Monday, Kyle and I went for a hike on Mt. Diablo. They say on a clear day you can see the Sierra Nevada from it. It was pretty hazy when we went.

We pretended we were mountain goats and did some fake-parkour, and then did some actual hiking.

Kyle had decided to dress up very 90’s for our hike.

New Year’s Eve, I had no plans of running because I was pretty busy, but I decided I had to end the year with a short 5K.

After my run I quickly met up with Kyle and his family for pizza. Kyle also made me a drink, the Dutch Amy.

He was going to make me a Dutch Mule but he didn’t have any gin. So a Dutch Amy is a Dutch Mule with lime vodka instead of gin. Patent pending.

A guide to Amy’s facial expressions:
I hope it’s good cause that will be awkward if it sucks –> tasting –> oh wow. it’s really delicious!

The rest of our evening consisted of playing Loaded Questions (board game), and then Kyle and I watching Modern Family until 11:55 when we switched it over to Ryan Seacrest to watch the ball drop. A nap may have been thrown in there too.

Nothing wild and crazy for our NYE, but I loved napping chilling with my guy.


On New Year’s Day, I went on a nice, slow, and easy 8 mile run. I wanted to run more, but I had a family party to get to.

That’s my new running shirt from Target! I love it and might go back for another one in a different color. $12.99 yo.

My night ended with some TV watching and catching up on blogs. Oh and Skyler fell asleep while on hold with Petco.

I hope y’all had a wonderful start to 2014!

What’d you do for NYE?

Anyone run on 1/1/14?

  1. Good times had by all…great hiking spot!
    Since I do everything in KM, I had to calculate your 8 miles…. you sure can pump out a good run! I thought getting out for a quick 3k was good on New Year’s day πŸ™‚ My NYE was pretty quiet, hubby was away and well the girls don’t actually party in the middle of the night these days .. ha ha.

    1. Haha I do the same to your KM!! Nooo you should be proud of your 3K, especially since my weather was around 60F and sunny πŸ˜‰ Lol yeah I have a feeling keeping the girls up would result in an unpleasant Jan 1st…

  2. I felt like your kitty on NYE, but managed to stay awake at a friend’s house. I am anxiously waiting to get in my first run of the year-snowy trails and a vicious head cold are holding me back thus far.

  3. Great job on your run yesterday! I was completely lazy and spent the day on the couch :). I love Target running tops too. I have three of the pullovers and wear them all of the time!

    1. Aww you poor thing!! What a crappy way to spend the New Year! I hope you feel better soon!! On a related note, my boss told me they make Airborne gummies (instead of the drink tablets). He said they taste great! You could get some of those haha?

  4. Oh my gosh! Words cannot even express how jealous I am that you have such amazing hiking near by! I grew up in Fl, but spend my summers out west hiking and MAN do I long for it!

    What a way to kick off your new year, WANTING to run more πŸ™‚

  5. I will be writing 2013 on everything until about May (I also thought I was 26 for like 3 years). Takes awhile to sink in for me πŸ™‚ I love your new VS top! Oh course it’s on sale now. OFFREAKINGCOURSE!!! Damn them. You are so cute with all those facial expressions. I think I’d rather have a Dutch Amy, but I love lime and hate gin. I might get in the kitchen and try your signature drink… well, until the patent goes through. Then you guys will have to come down here and make them for me πŸ™‚

    1. LOL I know what you mean. I hate when your birthday just passes and then someone asks you how old you are and you pause for a long time, lookin like an idiot…and OMG I KNOW. I hate when things go on sale like that. Always happens. Always. Definitely have a Dutch Amy! Kyle’s mom kept messing up the name (Amy mule) and I was like no! I will not be part ass- biologically speaking of course πŸ˜‰
