2012 - A Year in Review

Miss last year’s Year in Review? Catch up on 2011 here.

Had fun turning 31 at Mosaic.

Got artsy at the first annual Arty Party at the Four Seasons St. Louis with artist Jeff Kapfer.

For the first time in years, I celebrated Soulard Mardi Gras by not celebrating. I stayed in, stayed warm, and “Laissez les bons temps rouler” by watching Whitney Houston’s funeral. And for the record Whitney, crack is whack. 

Flew south for a work conference in Orlando and met these two reality show cuties:
Tenley Molzahn, Kiptyn Locke, & me.
Surprised Laura with a birthday party at her new home in the ‘burbs.

Took in a fashion show with Sylvia benefitting the Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition at [RE]Fresh – A Fashion Coalition in Brentwood.

Organized our first ever book club with this steamy read:

Beat the heat to watch my oldest nephew graduate from high school.

Kicked off The Year of The Wedding with a St. Louis Shower for Stessie.

Ate, drank, and celebrated Jessica and John’s engagement with a shower at Montelle Winery.

Not every bride-to-be gets two St. Louis celebrations in one month – but Jessica did with a night out in Soulard.

Headed West for my first trip to Sin City. We ate here, drank a $36 cocktail here, and danced the night away here…all without gambling a penny!

Met sweet baby Charlotte for the first time.

Ate here and closed 360 down with a red and black themed Bachelorette Party for Jessica.

Celebrated one wedding shower and one wedding reception on the same day for these two cute cousins:

After a two year hiatus, I re-started my classes towards a MA in Marketing here and all social life came to a screeching halt.

With a Rehearsal Dinner here and their wedding festivities here, we celebrated Stessie & Brian’s wedding in true St. Louis style.

Welcomed Billy to St. Louis with drinks here and dinner here during Downtown Restaurant Week.  

Took in a free concert by the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra on Art Hill.

Said adios to our St. Louis senorita, Erin, with a Going Away Party here.

Celebrated Donna’s 30th birthday with a surprise party here.

Spent the weekend in Overland Park celebrating Lauren and Andrew’s wedding – Kansas style!

Ended The Year of The Wedding on the campus of West Point with the marriage of Jessica and John.

Headed to the Lone Star State twice this month for work and saw a Texas rodeo in San Antonio and one of the most haunted streets in America, Hell’s Half Mile, in Ft. Worth.

Took in a night of theatre with Les Mis at the Fabulous Fox.

Satisfied my inner Twihard by seeing this movie. After a year's wait, it did not disappoint!

Met with fellow social media gals at the STL Social Girls Holiday Happy Hour organized by Danni at Plush.

Celebrated the impending birth of the Royal baby here. Long live the King…or Queen!

Won the first annual Ugly Sweater Party hosted by Laura and Jacob. When I play, I play to win!
