Hi!!! Happy New Year's Eve!!
It has been such a FULL, wonderful week since we celebrated Christmas!
We just got back from a super fun visit at my parents' house yesterday and we watched our friends' kids last night (they have QUADS!!) and Aaron had to be at work at 5 am this morning. Needless to say, I have been looking forward to nap time and a piping hot cup of coffee since I woke up this morning- HA!
I am linking up with Andrea, Erika and Narci today and sharing some of my favorite posts from this past year!!
I started this blog just little under a year ago and it has been such a FUN, creative outlet for me!! I had absolutely NO expectations (and still don't- HA!) going into starting this blog and I think that is why it is has brought me so much joy and allowed me to truly enjoy this blogging adventure!!
Thank you SO much for all of the sweet comments you have left and the emails you have sent me! And to my new, special "blog" friends- you know who you are- thank you for your support and always leaving me the nicest, most encouraging comments!!
Okay- now time for the fun part! Here are my FAVORITE posts from this past year!
Back in February, I linked up with Andrea for her Show and Tell Tuesday Series and shared how I met my husband! I LOVE our love story and it was SO fun getting to share it!!
In February, I shared one of my favorite cookie recipes!! Cowboy cookies are SO yummy and the dough is actually super versatile and easy to "mix and match!"
In March, I shared my "new momma must haves" and I can tell you- now that I am expecting baby #5 in a little over 4 months- that list is still spot on for me!
In April, I had so much fun talking about what Peter Cottontail was bringing to our house for Easter!
I also shared some wacky facts about me- if you know nothing else about me- you can rest assured I totally "own" my weirdness! HA!
In May, as part of Andrea's Show and Tell Tuesday Series, I shared my most classic "Momfessionals" moments. I had so much fun writing that post!! You would never know from this picture, but about 5 minutes prior to taking this sweet photo, our precious baby Cora had a huge blowout all over Aaron's white shirt!!
In June, I shared about a simple, touching moment I witnessed at the gym.
I also wrote about how we approach meal time at our house, with 4 very young children, who all have VERY different likes and dislikes when it come to food!
In July, I gave a little tour of our house! Since we are renting and will only be living here for another year and a half, I am so glad I took some pictures and will have a memory of this special house during this season of our life!
In August, I wrote a post about budget beauty products, all found at Walmart!
I have gotten into a routine of writing a "Weekly Walmart Finds" post every Wednesday and they are some of my favorite posts to write!!
In September, I shared about a fun little shopping trip I took with my two older daughters. We had such a great time!!
In October, I wrote about some super fun "splurges vs. steals" at Walmart- I had a BLAST writing that post!!
And I finally got to share our super exciting news about expecting Baby #5!!!
In November, I shared about my deep feelings of gratitude for our Veterans.
And in the earlier portion of December, I wrote a post about our favorite Christmas traditions we do with our kids!
It has been a wonderful year and I am so thankful I got to share it with all of you who have been so kind and supportive to read my little blog.
I am so excited for 2016 and all of the wonderful moments, big and small, that are in store for us in the upcoming year!!
Wishing you the Happiest New Year!!!
