My one new year's resolution for 2012 was to see Steph more, since she is only an hour and a half away in Dallas. Sadly, I can't report a huge ton of success for this one. Just a little bit. We made a good start at the beginning of the year but then I guess my tax season, her case load, my...eh, excuses, excuses. We saw each other three times in 2012.
January - While in Dallas for three days of tax CPE, I met up with Steph and Tammy at a cute pizza place called Dough for dinner and what turned into about 2.5 hours of great conversation!
February - I trekked up to Dallas for a slumber party at Steph's apartment. We did some crafty projects and stayed up past my bedtime.
November - Another CPE trip to Dallas this time and I got to have dinner with Steph on her birthday actually. It took me an hour and 15 minutes to drive about 8 miles from my hotel to the restaurant and it took Steph about 2 hours to drive from the location south of the metroplex she was working from that day, but we were finally united over wine and delicious food at Maggiano's. And I forgot to take a picture...
Steph just bought and moved into a house, so I think that calls for a trip up to see her and get a tour of her new digs before tax season kicks in. We decided seeing each other shouldn't just be a new year's resolution but rather a long standing policy.
