New Years Weekend Recap


I hope everyone had a safe, happy, and fun NYE. I fell asleep (again) around 11ish, but was woken up (again) to what sounded like World War 3 outside, it was crazy! So. Many. Fireworks. New years day was pretty lazy, but I wanted to share a few photos from the weekend!

On Sunday we went to a party we go to every year with my family and good times were had by all.

Monday, (New Years eve) my mom had to work so I hung out with my dad and Bobby and then we went for a 1.5 mile walk around the neighborhood.

Wearing my SUPER comfy and long Running Skirts top (with thumbholes and pullover mittens!) It felt good to get out and stretch. (Enter code SKIRTSASS at for 15% off your order!)

That night we ordered our favorite pizza from Marcos, and played Disney Monopoly and drank pink champagne.


Of course, I was pretty obsessed with the awesome game board and had to own the properties of my favorite rides! We played until the Chic Fil A bowl started, which ended up very depressing for us die hard LSU fans. It’s pretty fitting for our football season as a whole though of you look a the Saints as well. ug. Oh well, I still love my teams.

On New Years day, we slept in and then went to the grocery store and realized it didn’t open until 11:00 so we sat in the car and waited…and took photos.

We lounged around and watched bowl games (go #SEC!) and the headed home. it’s gloomy, humid, and hot and I am wondering where winter went? We had a great weekend and now I am excited about a short work week before we have another one! Today I am going for my last double digit run before goofy, the countdown is on! Happy 2013!

    That Disney monopoly looks awesome!!! Our family hung out with my friend and her family on New Year’s Eve. We grilled out steaks and did fireworks in the driveway for the kids…at like 10:00 lol! Once the ball dropped at 11 our time on TV we headed home to put the kids to bed. But I was woken up at midnight to crazy fireworks here at home! Happy New Year Heather!

    I love fireworks so that’s a yes from me! Fortunately, Philly has fireworks at 6pm and midnight so it’s easy to catch them even if you don’t think you’ll make it to midnight. Happy New Year!

    OOOH that Disney Monopoly is a beauty!

    Since you are SO knowledgeable about Disney races, I was wondering if you had any insight on spectating the Family Fun Run during Disney World Marathon weekend?

    My boyfriend is running the 5k on Friday morning and the website is super sparse on details. Do you know if it’s possible to cheer him on in his first race?

      absolutely! my mom spectated the 5k at princess and just stood along the barricades/fencing in the home stretch before the finish line, she just walked right up through the parking lot it was super easy! Let me know if you need more details!
