The end of 2013

I wasn't planning to write a post today, but I can't stand to look at that picture of myself as Michelle Duggar any longer. Ha!

Some of my friends and I went to Festival After a Dark benefitting CARTI. We had a blast!

They had a photo booth there and we had fun with that!  Photo booths definitely bring out the kid in you. 

I went to Iowa to visit my friend Catherine. We took a tour of the state capital. 

We went to the mall and there was a photo area in Crate and Barrel. 

My great great aunt turned 90 so we had a big party in Kansas City. 

For Thanksgiving I made these rolls that I found on Pinterest. They were easy and so cute!

One day as I was driving to the post office on my lunch hour, a deer ran into the side of my car. Everyone in the car was ok, but it was scary.  And the deer (which luckily was small) did $1800 worth of damage to my car. My car has been in the shop for almost 3 weeks, so hopefully I will get it back soon. 

Christmas came and went. Those two big green gifts are dog beds. It figures that the dogs in my family would get the biggest gifts. 

See this black sweater? It seriously cost like $7 and they accidentally left the security tag on it at Old Navy. I don't know why they feel the need to put a security tag on such a cheap item. Luckily I found a YouTube video for how to remove it. I think you can find anything on the internet. Ha. 

My mom gave me this medal hanger for Christmas. Now all my medals are on the wall instead of thrown in the closet. Hopefully in March, there will be another LR Half Marathon medal on there. 

After the LR half, I am going to switch to shorter races and try to work on my speed. I am tired of every Saturday being dominated by long runs. I need to get faster anyway, so I figured this was a good time. Hopefully one day I will go back to distance running, but I just need a break for a little while.
