I do a lot of stuff. When you do a lot of stuff, sometimes you forget some of the stuff. So here’s my look back at the stuff of 2012 that really stands out:
We kicked off the year in Orlando for the Disney Marathon.
Waving to my fans coming out of Cinderella’s Castle with my sis.
One of the coolest experiences of the trip though, was getting to go to a “secret” meeting with the rodents of the house.
Not only that, but our toddler got to run in his first race!
I’m assuming those are moisture wicking jeans.
Then, unlike most years, I had a birthday. I was lucky enough to spend it with friends on a patio.
Around the same time I ran two Rock n Roll 1/2 Marathons. One in New Orleans, one in Dallas.
The Ferris Bueler Wheel was closed.
Hey Mister! I like your “throw”.
Then I went to a bunch of spring/summer concerts. DMB, Edward Sharpe, Flaming Lips, etc. etc. etc. But Buffett is an annual must!
I also changed my mailing address to Margaritaville.
What else happened? Oh yeah, we had a baby girl.
Who says you never get to sleep after you have a baby?
I got to act in another movie (still in post-production at the time of this posting.)
Acting like I know what I’m doing.
Speaking of making film & television magic, I was lucky enough to win several more awards for my productions…Including my 4th Emmy!
Don’t be fooled by the fancy photo, I’m actually not wearing pants.
Then three generations of Evanseses got to dust off our Cleveland Browns gear and watch them play in person at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium. It was a rare treat for us Dallasite Browns fans!
All aboard the Browns Bus!
Speaking of rooting for teams, I’m a big fan of FC Dallas, and I was fortunate enough to briefly be a part of their dance team.
Guess which one of us forgot to shave their legs.
Speaking of hanging with famous folks…I get to meet them in my line of business, and one of this year’s highlights was getting to interview The Bangles. Cool ladies.
I taught them how to walk like an East Texan.
Afterwards I was briefly employed as the official guard of the Alamo.
Yosemite Sam would be proud of my moves. He would then be sad that they no longer serve “Pie Alamode.”
As the year wound down, the elves got to meet the big guy, St. Santa himself.
Finally, Santa granted our Xmas wish, as we were able to go to Shreveport, LA to see the mighty Ohio Bobcat Football Team win the Independence Bowl! This is a big deal. After watching the team struggle for decades, they are finally good! This was their 2nd ever bowl win and their 2nd bowl win in consecutive years.
So there’s some of the stuff from 2012. In between was a lot of other stuff – races, friends, shows, good times, adventures, etc. but these are some highlights. Looking back it was a pretty dag nab good year. Here’s hoping that 2013 is even better! And here’s hoping your year was also happy and next year even happier.
Peace and love!
