where's the soft served ice cream?

was what B and I asked the super UN-friendly man at the Grifs game. 
he sent us all the way down to the end of the hall in search and it happened to be about 10 steps in front of us.

That did not ruin our night
or the fact the Grifs lost

because we still got the ice cream
and had a blast on a date night with Peter and Betsy
thanks for the invite yo!

BUT we still headed up north and had a really fun time away.
We even got to pop in and visit little man who was staying at the Great Wolf Lodge!
 Went to the outlets
downtown shopping
explored the beach, where is all the water?

Went to a new brewery
out to dinner at the Blue Tracker
aka pulled pork and delicious!

Woke up to a little snow

quest for...

holy grail
just more fruit and vegetables
healthier 2013

We are only 9 days into 2013 but I thought I would try something new
Very skeptical of it all I mean spinach and berries...hmmm
My review: GOOD.  have had it the last three mornings
Js review: SICK!  GROSS. MADE ME WANT TO VOMIT insert drama King
haha more for me I guess

Healthy sit down meal: Parmesan covered chicken and roasted tomatoes
My Review: GOOD..duhh I am the cook, but it was good just saying
Js Review: ALSO good.  Make again quality right there.

Here's to more of this goodness in the weeks to come
Nothing drastic just a bit of added extras of the Fruits and Vegetables for a healthier 2013 :)
off my promotion/two cents and still upset for the extra crazyyyysss at the gym

ringing in the new year

two days before the new year hit I wrapped out one more resolution/goal from 2012
Hit Dennys on Plainfield with B
nothing like cutting it close
and nothing like not needing to go back for about another 15 years
the company was GREAT.... the atmosphere now that is a different story

was brought in with lots of fun with the Bultemas
First stop Roses for dinner
then downtown to the GRAM and Jesse McCartney concert and ball drop

 Yup Jesse...still love your music

Happy New Year to this lovey
2012 was by far the most memorable year yet
First engaged, planned a wedding, and married this wonderful man
moved out of my house and into our home ;-)
Completed Navy Pier, Riverbank run, and Dennys from last years resolutions
enjoyed lots of family time and fun included Florida, Dougies 60th Birthday, Traverse City Weekends, and still the wonderful 'family dinner' night
Lots of great memories with friends.  Thursday nights are still going strong
lots lots lots more to be Thankful for when I reflect over the year

looking forward to what 2013 has to bring

So I shall state my 2013 Goals [again only a few]
1. Bake stuffed Chicken breast [didn't complete last year]
2.  Spend a winter wonderland weekend in Traverse City
3. Somehow convince the lovely to go to Lady Gaga in February
4. Read more books
5. Focus more on the positive side of life/things
6.  Complete a race of some sort [always a must!]

Happy Happy New Year
Wishing everyone a blessed 2013
