My 2012.

{ january }

Ummm... apparently I did absolutely nothing significant in January? Lets pretend I did something super cool and I just forgot to take any pictures. That's plausible right? Kinda? Moving on.

{ february }

Took a quick trip to Mexico with the fam. I hope everyone gets to experience true Mexico once in their lives. We're talking real, somewhat ghetto (but still safe!), random taco hut on the side of the road, you're not sure exactly what the meat is, getting churros from the side of the road while waiting at the border, MEXICO mexico. A quick tip for you: It's more fun with a big family all crammed into one giant van.

Had a bachelorette party for the fabulous KB (now Mrs. Newman) at Max Brenner

{ march }

The Kori and Stefan Wedding! So perfect. So romantic. So out of touch with my own personal reality for my future wedding! I live vicariously through these two. Anytime I can wear a full-length dress, count me in.

Followed up a few weeks later by the wedding of my sweet lifelong best friend Ally to her prince charming Steve. True love at its finest! And a rather dapper-looking wedding party, if I do say so myself!

{ april }

A fabulous last hurrah trip to Disneyland before Chase left on his mission. So many sweet memories from this trip!

{ may }

Once again, I have no proof that I was even alive in May 2012. If anyone finds any evidence proving otherwise, please pass it along.

{ june }

Said cheerio to our sweet Elder Yase for two years!

Saw the President of the United States at UNLV, which was an awesome experience regardless of whether or not I agree with his politics.

Took Hannah and her friends to the One Direction concert and secretly fell in love with them myself. I'm a Harry girl, in case you were wondering. Please let me know your preference as well.

Celebrated my 24th birthday (ugh) with an excellent donut cake from my best sister-in-law Shaylee, who basically fulfilled all my birthday wishes.

{ july }

Dixon family reunion at Brianhead and the bike ride of death!

Besties trip to San Diego. Sun, sand, and weinerschnitzel. What more could a girl ask for?

{ august }

Celebrated Padre's 50th birthday at Lawry's

Had lots of swimming parties with this cutest wittle guy!

Did baptisms with my littlest Bill

{ september }

Traded in the good ol Vue for baby Mini! I still think she's the cutest little ever.

Went to the Kellogs Gymnastics tour with your mom and Bill. We love the Fierce 5!

San Francisco! Painted Ladies! Golden Gate! Insanely gorgeous olympic swimmer Nathan Adrian! GIANTS CLINCH (and eventually win the World Series!)

{ october }

OMG still crying about this. Did I tell you guys that Justin Timberlake touched me? Because he did. Just look at that arm wrapped so warmly around me. His hand fits too perfectly on my shoulder, right? Ugh it's annoying how perfect we look together, isn't it?

Made my glorious return to P-town to see the golden child and shower her with massages, pedicures and costco trips

Met the precious Miss Harper May Mackay for the first time! Her name rhymes, isn't that just the sweetest thing ever?

Celebrated the wedding of one of my most favorite people ever, Jac Kerouac (yes, thats her new married name... she's famous) and reunited with the SUU bests

{ november }

Tortured Jessica by sending her pictures from Rebel games she's not at... it's my favorite hobby

Made your mom a birthday cake... clearly I have an enormous future in cake decorating, right?

{ december }

Went to Portland and the Employee Store

Set up the train and played with it for many hours with my favorite wittle

and celebrated his 2nd birthday with his very own Elmo cake! He's seriously the cutest thing on this earth. Trust.

Had our annual gingerbread festival with Bec, Jackie and Ally and their husbands. One day I'll have a husband to contribute, guys. I promise I won't be a 5th (7th?) wheel forevs.

Had a wonderful and spiritual Christmas Eve with my family, which included a very touching and special letter from Elder Yase. Something I will remember for a very long time.

Skyped with said Elder! Technology is amazing. He loves England and we love him. And he's lost 30 pounds in 6 months! How do I get on that plan?

Fell in love with everything Carolina blue on a quick trip to Chapel Hill

Spent New Year's Eve day at the church prepping for the big dance! Boots has the cutest friends and I try to make them my friends too. I'm such an embarrassing older sister. Don't worry, I spent my New Years Eve in my pajamas playing board games with my other sister's friends. I really should find some of my own one of these days.

2012 was an interesting year. Not terrible, but not terribly exciting. I have a lot of things I want to accomplish in 2013 and for the first time in a long time, I feel excited about the coming year. It's always nice to have a fresh start and a lot of things to look forward to. xoxo
