Photo Roundup :: Mega Edition 01.13

by Samantha ~ January 15th, 2013. Filed under: photo roundup.



This is a super-mega Photo Roundup! I had a million and ten photos to post, and cut it down to only a million and three. And, that photo above there, where I’m wearing the totally awesome sunglasses I found on eBay for around $4 (because I almost spent $400 on the designer pair and then totally came to my senses)? I’m not as pissy as I might look, honest.

I had thought about doing one of those awesome Year in Review posts that are all over the place this month, but then I started drafting one up and it was sorta overwhelming. Our first year in New Orleans was pretty amazing, and I can only see it getting better. If you’re curious about my 2012, check out the archives here, or any of the older Photo Roundups!

I’ve been making a smoothie almost every morning, having delicious saldas and juices, and keeping on track, but then, there was a praline ice cream sundae covered in salted caramel, whipped cream, and smoked bacon. Yeah … that happened. So did some burgers, pizza, beer, and some cheese plates. No guilt!
