I just rang in the New Year with some of my best friends, but before I gush about our evening, I wanted to post about my absolute favorite (photographed) moments of 2012. I’ll admit, I got a little nostalgic after reading some great 2012 recaps and wanted to join the fun. I’ll keep it short and only mention things before November :)

HELICOPTERING THE BAY!!!!! lesson: Kyle is the best at choosing adventure surprises.


Vegas trip with my old company…. lesson: sometimes, let a company spoil you.


SLO trip in February…. lesson: wine tasting picnics with best friends will never get old.


Blogging with this one….. lesson: she’s the best blogger buddy


Convinced Kyle to join the Oakland relay team with Matt and Miranda….. lesson: we make a good team! 3rd place mixed!


Winefest with sorority sisters….. lesson: avoid typhoon weather while at an outdoor wine tasting event.


Lots of Giants games! lesson: the Giants are freaking amazing


Hollywood Half Marathon with Nicole (her first!)… lesson: Nicole has colorful language at mile 12 ;)


COSTA RICA WITH MY BEST FRIENDS! lesson: we need to go on more trips together!


Many rafting trips…. lesson: dig your toes in to the side of the raft, and you’ll be fine through almost any rapids

And despite Costa Rica, Portland, Seattle, Vegas, I think the TRIP OF THE YEAR award goes to the Eurotrip Kyle and I went on for the Olympics. This post includes links to all the related posts if you want to read about it for some reason.









Women’s Marathon…. nuts.


Vegas for Megan’s bachelorette party…. lesson: go big or go home

Broken wrist because of said roller discoing… lesson: don’t let a cast stop you from doing anything


Three amazing weddings. Steve and Amy, Matt and Miranda, and Paul and Megan! lesson: more people need to invite me to their weddings, I had so much fun at all of them!


Kinda fell in love with watching sports and rooting for my favorite teams (Cal Poly football, USC football and basketball, SF 49ers, SF Giants….) lesson: life goes on without NHL and the Sharks :(
