General facts about my year so far:

  • I haven’t eaten fast-food once this year, although I may have started eating out at restaurants more than I used to 🙂 But I don’t eat out nearly as often as I used to eat fast food, so health-wise it’s better, but it probably hasn’t made a big difference, finance-wise.
  • Nick and I bought a house in February 2012 and we are “almost” done fixing it up (biggest/most time-consuming project so far has been putting on a new roof)
  • In March 2012, I went to see Hunger Games at midnight with friends
  • I started to run in April 2012 after years of vowing I’d never be one of those people 🙂
  • My younger sister got married in May 2012
  • We bought Nick a truck in May 2012
  • I ran my first 5K in June 2012–I also hit 6 miles as my farthest distance of continual running in June 2012
  • My maternal grandpa died in June 2012 😦
  • Nick and I had our 9th anniversary in June 2012 (that’s 9 years together, not married)
