Seeing as how I am always a bit behind the times, I feel like now is a better time than ever to do a 2013 recap.
2013 was pretty darn great to us.
With both of us starting new jobs, we were able to travel way more than we expected.
We went to Chattanooga, The Cayman Islands, NYC, Seattle, Portland, and Disney World.
We both turned 26 and celebrated a whole year of marriage.
We celebrated Charlie's third birthday and watched him become a tad bit more spoiled along the way.
Catch up on all the high points of last year with these photos and links:
After years of daydreaming about it, we kayaked the Nantahala River in North Carolina.
One highlight for the both of us would probably be finding this beer in Dallas.
(Although finding our bill of $75 was a little bit of a lowlight.)
We fell in love with Wednesday night bingo at The Gingerman (and kinda dominated).
best friend's wedding.
We discovered our favorite food truck, Easy Slider, thanks to Deep Ellum Brewing Company's tour.
We celebrated this guy's 26th birthday.
We survived a 112 degree Texas summer (by letting Charlie play in fountains)
We spent a fantastic weekend in Nola with these guys (who also FINALLY got engaged!)
After attending multiple weekday concerts in Dallas with Josh, I realized I was finally experiencing what I had been dreaming about for two years prior to us getting married.
Is "bring your sister to work day" a thing?
Josh lost a bet, so I posted this video to YouTube.
Now it has over 7,000 views.
We went slightly overboard for Charlie's third birthday.
We overindulged in Sprinkles new Ice Cream shop, only a few times.
We built many a fort and played many a game of hide and go seek with this dog who we are fairly certain is a human.
I built an ACL all by myself at work!
I also went a real life business trip
all by myself with three of my not so young, male co-workers.
We discovered our all time favorite Dallas brewery, Peticolas.
We finally experienced the Texas State Fair (and all of it's fried food goodness)
We transformed Charlie into an Irish Settler for Halloween (meanwhile experiencing an epic Halloween costume fail on our part).
We celebrated my 26th birthday in a cabin in the Ozarks.
While there, we recreated this photo from 2010.
We spent an incredible weekend in Seattle and at The Gorge with four of our best friends (and Dave Matthews, The Head and The Heart, and Lord Huron).
We became Auntie Em and Uncle Josh for the first time!
We celebrated an entire year of marriage (success!) which could only be appropriately celebrated with pound cake.
An even more appropriate way to celebrate our one year anniversary was with a surprise trip to Portland.
In December, we survived the worst ice storm in the history of the world.
Ok maybe that was a tad dramatic.
It was brutal, and driving on 2 inches of ice sucked, but being "iced in" for a weekend with these two was pretty fun.
We capped off this incredible year with a trip to Disney with my family.
Hooray for surviving 2013.
Show us what ya got, 2014.
