Obligatory 'WHERE HAS THIS YEAR GONE?' is needed to begin this post. It's hard to believe we are moving so quickly into a new year that will bring new hopes and dreams. Tonight I will be surrounded by family and my dog, drinking champagne, watching movies and enjoying a delicious dinner. It's going to be a laid back night, but I am alright with this. I think it's good to have a night to relax and just let other people have fun. I don't like to think like this, but I am perpetually single and so it's hard sometimes to go and celebrate on a night where a kiss is most often expected. Maybe next year, right?
 
I thought I would also reflect back on some of the major parts of 2013 that happened to me. It's hard to sometime remember every little detail, but these stand out.
  • Started working at I've Got Your Style, which is a local Personal Styling company here in Minneapolis, where I helped with social media outreach and updating the blog.
  • My lifelong friend, Tammy, married her sweetheart in Austin, Texas. It was the first time I had been in the state.
  • Visited my beautiful friend Lexi in California. I stayed there for four days and it was an absolute blast.
  • FINALLY got my driver's license after two failed attempts. I started crying in the car because I was so happy.
  • My beautiful second nephew, Riley, was born on August 30th. He was 7 lbs., 6 oz. I feel super blessed because I helped my sister during the two days while she was in the hospital. I got to see him grow just in those first few days. So special.
  • Began my first day of my last class of my college career in September.
  • Saw Mumford and Sons for the first time at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota. It was epic to say the least.
  • Attended my Portfolio Show where I presented my final product to faculty members, industry professionals and guests.
  • Attended my GRADUATION and am now officially a college graduate with a Bachelor's of Science in Fashion Retail & Management.
  • Ready to put on my big girl pants and find a job!
Here's hoping that 2014 will be just as epic. I have a lot of goals and hopes for this upcoming year, which I hope will come true. To start it off with a bang, look to Mostly Lisa tomorrow for a brand new theme and layout! I am very excited to show everyone and switch up the look and feel of this passion. Much love to you all and I all hope you have a fantastic NYE and 2014!
 
Always,
Mostly Lisa

  3. Your New Year's Eve sounds just like mine! I'm keeping it low key with the familia. Oh, Lisa I feel like I'm perpetually single too! It's okay we'll be single together;)! You've accomplished SOO much this year! I'm so proud of you Lisa. Keep up the amazing work! Hope next year is even better than the last! Wishing you endless love, happiness, and success in 2014:)!

    1. My plans changed actually! I ended up going out with one of my really good friends and drank and had a blast. I am glad that it changed though, it was much needed. I really hope that you had a great time though with your family. Yes, let's be single together! I think it's okay to be single right now, we can easily spoil ourselves and not worry about having to please another person. Thank you so much for your amazingly kind words, it means so much to me. I really hope 2014 turns out to be exactly what we both want. xoxo!

      Always,
