By the Numbers: 2013

I could pretend I waited until now to post this so it wouldn't get lost in all the other 2013 recaps in your blog feed, but let's face it: I just hadn't gotten around to compiling everything until now. :) My numerical summations of 2011 and 2012 were so fun, I thought I would do another one for 2013! Enjoy....

Best of December: A Month in Review

December: The end of 2013. The month of Christmas. My first NFL game. Rocking a sock bun on NYE in the city. Here's the best of last month in my life and on the blog:

December started off on a high note when I attended my first NFL game with Jonathan and his family. (But I'm definitely rooting for the Panthers tomorrow—sorry California friends!) We also visited a nearby Christmas tree farm to chop down our tree, which neither of us had ever done before. (And the tree is definitely still up in the living room, lights and all. Whoops!)

Other notable events of the month included two holiday parties with Jonathan's co-workers and a night out in San Francisco to celebrate the New Year. Jonathan and I went to a NYE party at a lounge near AT&T Park with his sister and cousin and their significant others. I even participated in a dance-off! He told me I was a "pretty good dancer." I admitted he was better. ;)

I think this challenge set the record for most finishers! Even though I did possibly the worst I've ever done (though I'm embarrassed to look back at the other challenges and confirm), we had SEVEN readers finish every category in the three-month challenge timeframe! Congrats to all these wonderful ladies, and thanks to everyone who participated! See the full scoreboard after the jump (and an announcement about the next challenge!).

Autumn 2013 Book Challenge: Month 3

Is it just me, or did this challenge finish way too quickly? I actually had to go back and read the challenge rules again to make sure the challenge ended yesterday and didn't last through the end of January. Sure enough, it did end last night at 11:59 p.m., and six people have already finished! So maybe I'm the only one who has been slacking. ;) Here is the current scoreboard:
