2013... We're only a month in and already I'm liking you better than 2012. It's not that 2012 was bad, it just couldn't quite live up to the expectations that I had for it, given how insanely awesome 2011 had been.

While I didn't make concrete resolutions this year, I do have a few things I'd like to improve on. And here they are:

  1. Eat healthier! I need to somehow make up for the insane amount of cheese, cupcakes, and snickers bars that I consumed the following year.
  2. Exercise more! (Or just exercise) Okay, so this one goes hand in hand with the healthy eating thing. Honestly, I don't know why exercise is such a blah thing for me. I love the outdoors, fresh air, and parks. Walking/jogging 30 minutes a day shouldn't be so bad.
  3. Find time to finally print out and frame/make albums for the 1000+ pictures I've had stored in my computer for an eternity.
  4. Take the dogs on more walks. This is a strong motivator for the whole exercise thing I've got to work on, plus, my doggies are getting chubby too.
  5. And finally, potty train my two-year old! This is proving to be the hardest one of all time. Potty training a kid whose determined to hang onto those diapers is about as difficult as trying to train a chihuahua to hold it's small and inefficient bladder.
Now that you know some of my resolution type self-improvements, let's take a stroll down memory lane and recap some of the better moments of last year.
