The highlights in January were that this blog celebrated it's 4th year. I cannot believe I have been writing nonsense and shenanigans for 4 years and now it will be 5 years this January. Oh my. Also in January, our house because a movie star. My favorite recipe from January is Pork Butt Two Ways.
This is my birthday month and I was at Disney on a press trip. It was one of the best birthdays I ever had! I also was retweeted on Twitter by Donna Brazille and David Corn and went a little fangirl.
Tom left me in March to go to China. I was so jealous because that was an amazing trip. Nothing much else happened that month. My favorite recipe in March was Disney Ohana Wings.
I met my new friend Lizzy who lives about an hour away. She found me online and we became fast friends. I started learning French but have forgotten everything I learned. My favorite recipe from April was Hasselback Potatoes.
We went to Europe and it was amazing. I loved London the most. I want to live there. I finally saw the Eiffel Tower so I can die happy. We also went to Spain. I ended up in the E.R. in Barcelona but that didn't spoil Madrid for me.
I went to Cincinnati to the Procter and Gamble Headquarters. It was amazing. We also started our garden and it was starting to grow.
Our garden was growing and we harvested goodies. We traveled to Atlanta! My favorite recipe was Spaghetti with Gremolata!
In August I headed to Costa Rica to visit the family. I also learned how to make pasta and visited the Cafe Britt coffee factory!
September was slow. I did travel to NYC as one of the Top Latina Bloggers. It was a lot of fun and I saw a lot of old friends. We visited the United Nations and I snick out to see the 9/11 memorial.
This month sucked balls. Our baby, Scout, died. We had her for about 17 years. She was our first baby and to this day, we miss her sooooooo much. It is lonely around here without her. We also headed to Charlotte for a football game. My favorite recipe: Potato and Onion Gratin.
Fall came to Western North Carolina. It was beautiful as Fall is. I love the Fall. We also headed to Las Vegas and ate some sinful food. We attended the Latin Grammy's and fired a gun and an uzi. My favorite recipe: Roasted Acorn Squash.
I am a huge nerd. I received a White House Christmas Card again this year and was thrilled. I love those Obamas! We headed to Cancun. I promise a recap post and pictures soon but I have been too lazy to do it. My favorite recipe: Potato, Garbanzo and Pork stew.
This was our year of travel. I think we would have traveled more but we spent our summer taking care of our little baby. I am hoping more travel opportunities come up for us in 2014. It was also a so-so year. We had some bad spots especially losing Scout. But it was overall a good year for us. I am hoping 2014 brings us bigger and better things and a Mega Money lottery jackpot.
Happy New Year.
