2014 Recap

Published January 6, 2015 by thisprincesswillrun

Oh hey.
Did you remember I have a blog?
Because apparently I just did.

Anyway, 2015 is here! But real quick
lets take a look back at 2014, because it was pretty rad year!

John and I went to quite a few concerts together! It’s one of our favorite things to do, but some years we get the opportunity to go more often. 2014 we saw: Tyrone Wells, Tony Lucca, Matt Nathanson, and OAR twice!

We weaseled our way right up front for the first OAR show over the summer and I even left with the set list! (Which now hangs above my side of the bed) we also made it into 2 of the crowd pictures the band took on stage, one at each show! Nothing makes me happier than being at an OAR concert.

2014 also marked the last full year in my 20’s! I will be turning 30 this august, so I came up with my 30 Things To Do Before 30. Most were pretty realistic and doable, and a few I knew would be a stretch. But I think I did a damn good job knocking a few off the list before 2015 started!

John and I went to the Philly Comicon last year and it was a lot of fun! We’re waiting to see who will be there this year so we can plan accordingly. Couples that need out together stay together. That’s a thing right?
In October when we went to Disney I somehow built up the courage, and I RODE MY FIRST ROLLER COASTER IN OVER 10 YEARS!! See? Up there? That blurry selfie? That’s me ON A COASTER!! Granted, it’s the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, and it’s a baby coaster. But I did it! Twice!
And the day after we got home from Disney, I “somehow” ended up on Petfinder. And the dog I had been crying over in the spring WAS STILL UP FOR ADOPTION. So I pulled the crying wife card and I set up a meeting to go see him. And not only did I fall in love instantly, but John did too. And so a month later, we became dog-parents to Apollo Bacardi Anselmo. And I don’t know how we lived so long without him.
And lastly, when Kim came home for the holidays we went to Painting With A Twist! It was lots of fun, and I want to do it again with my sisters-in-law in the spring.

And lastly, to wrap up 2014, this year will forever and always be the year that changed my life. I started running. I had one goal: sign up and complete the Walt Disney World Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10 mile race in October. And with the help of SO many people, I did. Not only did I survive, I wasn’t the last one to finish-not even close!-but I also found out that I LIKE to run! Imagine that? I did 4 races in 2014:

And lastly, the ToT 10 miler! One of the best nights of my life, and I was so proud to have my husband run with me and we finished hand in hand with big smiles! 💖

2014 really was an incredible year, and 2015 is already shaping up to be just a great if not better! Hopefully I can keep up with the blog much more then I did last year. 😘
