2013: A Year in Review

This girl's brain can hardly remember what I did yesterday so thankfully for FB, I was able to go through each month's events and photos to compile this post. 2013 has been a great year filled with travel, a promotion at work, and fun celebrations with friends. I think you can call that a good year!


Rang in the new year with friends at a Masquerade party.



Traveled to Trinidad for Carnival (the most amazing street parade you will ever experience). You get to dress in beautiful costumes and dance on the streets for two days. Lots of drinking, musical performances, and crazy shenanigans with friends.
Celebrated St. Patrick's Day with friends.



Went to see Taylor Swift in concert. More about the concert here and how we got scammed from someone selling tickets on StubHub.



We went to the Slightly Stoopid concert in St Pete, FL with friends and stayed out there for the weekend. More about this trip here.



 K and I traveled to NYC to celebrate our anniversary. It was my first time visiting the city and I fell in love!



 Celebrated 4th of July with friends.
Weekend trip with friends to St Pete Beach to celebrate two birthdays on the beach.

Celebrated Kate's 30th birthday at a pool party & BBQ at their house.



 Rented a beach condo with friends in Treasure Island, FL to spend Memorial long weekend and celebrate K's birthday



My parents came to visit us for two weeks and we rented a beach condo in Cocoa beach for a couple days.



 We celebrated Thanksgiving with family and had a Friendsgiving dinner with friends.

We also went to a company event at the Gaylord Palms and got to stay the night at the hotel for free.



December is always the busiest month and lots of celebrations. We went to several holiday parties at friends houses and my work company party at Epcot & Disney.

Visited Savannah, GA for my 30th Birthday.
Dirty Thirty birthday dinner and celebrations with friends.

And lastly, Christmas & NYE was spent with family.

Looking forward to what 2014 has in store!

Happy New Year!

The Sunday Social: Valentine's Day

Hi everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. I'm joining Ashley and Neely today for The Sunday Social.
Sunday Social
1. What is the best Valentine's Day you've ever had?
When K and I spent the weekend in Ft Lauderdale. He decorated the room with roses and had a bottle of champagne waiting for us. 

2. What is the worst Valentine's Day you've ever had?
I honestly can't remember a bad Valentine's Day. I know when I was single I would always joke that it was "valium-times" day because of all the hype.

3. What did you do for Valentine's this year?
I was in Trinidad away from K on Valentine's day so we celebrated last night instead. We went to the movies to see Identity Theft and then had dinner at my favorite Spanish Tapas restaurant, where we enjoyed sangria, live music & dancing, and different dishes from Spain.

4. What is your best Valentine's idea if you're single?
A ladies night with wine and sushi would be perfect :-)

5. What is your favorite Valentine's candy?
Any kind of Chocolate... or cheesecake, if you consider that candy.

6. Favorite Valentine's memory from your childhood?
When I had my first "boyfriend" at 11 years old, he gave me a heart shaped box of chocolates and a card. It was quite cute, now looking back.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Vacation Trip Countdown

3 more days until my trip home to Trinidad!

I'm looking forward to Boat parties on the ocean in 90 degree weather.

I'm excited about wine nights with my girl friends.

I 'm well overdue for all the different local food that I miss so much.
The Trinidad Bake and Shark was rated the best fish sandwich in the world by Andrew Zimmerman and I have to agree. ;-)

And of course I'm looking forward to the main purpose of the trip - Carnival!!

Tell Me About It Tuesday: NYE Fun

Today feels like a Sunday (Meh!) but I'm welcoming 2013 with open arms... and some curiosity. 2012 treated me good and since 13 is my lucky number, I think this will also be a great year.
I bought these 2013 champagne glasses for K and I to use when we pop the champagne at midnight.
K and I started off NYE night by going out for Sushi dinner.

We then went to a friend's house party to ring in 2013. 
I wore my sparkly skirt, black blazer and boots.
We had a great time celebrating with friends and several jello shots were enjoyed!

I'm curious to see what 2013 has in store for me. According to a cheesy horoscope I read, my new year will be marked by: FRIENDS, SUCCESS & INTELLIGENCE. That's alright with me!!
