Hi Everyone! WOW. It’s been SO long since I’ve blogged on my personal blog. A lot of things have happened since my half marathon! Instead of writing smaller posts to catch everyone up, I thought I would write my year in review blog post of all of 2014. I’ll try to make it short & sweet, but 2014 was a BIG year for me.
Started my LAST first day of school @ BYU!
I was a Bridesmaid for my best friend Devin’s wedding!! Also, Erich & I set them up on a blind date – so they are forever indebted to us. HAHAHA

April was definitely a BIG month for me. Lots of exciting things like winning the Redbull DJ contest!! HAHAHA Thanks to my fanz!!!
The next week, my friends – Emilee, Summer & Kim decided to join the Questival. Probably the BEST decision ever made. A 24 hour race (kinda like The Amazing Race) in Utah to win a Humanitarian Trip to Kilimanjaro. We did not take this seriously at all until we found out we were one of the top all-female teams in the event. Wanna know the best part? WE WON!!!!!!! I still can’t believe it & looking back, it was one of the best memories I’ll never forget.

Sorry for the LONG blog post. I needed to catch everyone up on everything! If you are still reading – good for you. & you are probably one of my best friend’s that actually cares. But really this post was mostly for me to keep track of everything. 2014 has been an AMAZING year. I definitely grew a ton and learned a lot about myself this year. I do miss the East Coast every day, but I’m glad to be in Utah with wonderful friends and with Steven. I can’t wait to see what 2015 brings!
P.S. Disneyland was technically beginning of 2015 – but, whatever. I love this pic and this guy 🙂
