Looking Back on 2012

As I look back on 2012, all I can say is 

"WOW, It's been a heck of a ride" and we're still going!!!!! 

Here's a month by month play of just how our year went! 

There was a lot of change, a lot of joy, a lot of HUGE accomplishments, HUGE disappointments and everything in between! 

I'm working on a post for my hopes and dreams for a beautiful 2013!!!! 

January 2012:

My husband has just lost his job and I had just dove into 60 hours of work a week on the graveyard shift! 

EEEKkkk...................gives me the heeby jeebies just thinking about it.

Ginger turns ONE!~ 

February 2012:

This month I got REALLY into running!!! I started training 6 days a week and L*O*V*E*D it. It was my release from all the stress at work and home.

My husband and I get our second date in 2 1/2 years:)

 March 2012:

We went on our first family vacation to New Orleans to visit friends and family and I ran my first ever half marathon

It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I want to do it over and over again! This is what began my obsession with running! 

April 2012:

As I said above, my full on obsession with running continues. This was me at 4am before a 20 mile run! 


I run another {HALF MARATHON}

May 2012:
My birthday month! I turned 34 this past year!!!! 

Mothers Day:)

June 2012:

June was a  big month!!!! Hubby and I got preggers with baby #3 after one month of trying luckily and after getting a stress fracture in my right tibia the month before from over training, I signed up for {JUNEATHON}. Yes, I worked out every single day it the month of June and blogged about it, pregnant. It was awesome!! 

July 2012: 

July rolls around I am starting to feel pretty sick, morning sick that is:( But I was till running 20-30 miles a week. Me above on a 6 mile run! 

{Father's Day}

August 2012:

By the time August rolls around I am in full swing morning sickness nightmare!!! nausea and vomiting daily and still working full time.
 Here I am still running too but you can see by the look on my face I'm not too happy!

September 2012:

Still sick as a dog. This was the end of my pregnancy running career right here. This was the Heart's for Honduras  10K I ran in September at 16 weeks pregnant. I stopped running after this. 

October 2012:

S*T*I*L*L sick as a dog........In fact things start to get worse ans I have to drop to part time at my job and my emotional status starts to get a little sketchy.


 Little Milton Turns 3! 

November 2012:

I finally go out on maternity leave due to multiple emotional and physical problems! I start decorating and baking for the holidays!!! YAY!


December 2012:

And finally beautiful, magical Christmas. I cannot express how grateful I am this year for all the amazing gifts our family was given. I really, truly experiences some pretty profound Christmas miracles this year!
