The Best of 2017

Oh my gosh. You guys. How is it already the last day of 2017?! I can’t believe how quickly this year flew by! And honestly… I’m kind of glad. 2017 was SO NOT my year. Like seriously. I read my Best of 2016 post just before I started writing this and realized my year last year was SO much cooler.

Every year, I get a little bit nervous to leave the year behind us and jump into a new year filled with uncertainties, unknowns and new challenges. But this year? I’m ready to leave 2017 behind. 2018 is going to be our year. I can just feel it.

On a side note, before I get to recapping my year, today is a super special day for me and my hubby! SEVEN years ago today (how has it been that long?!) we went on our very first date. Little did we know way back then, it would be our very last first date ever. Kind of crazy to think about! We went out with our friends to ring in 2011. And even though he got us kicked out of the bar (long story!) we’ve been inseparable since that night.  So cheers to seven years of laughs, adventures and love, Babe. I’m so happy I get to do life with you!

Thank you all for joining me for 2017!  I’m so happy that you’re here, and that we’re going to be ringing in 2018 together. I hope that 2018 brings you 12 months of success, 52 weeks of laughter, 365 days of good luck, 8760 hours of fun, 525600 minutes of joy, 31536000 seconds of love and 1 whole year of happiness!

I’ll talk to you next year 😉

And we did a DIY that we’re still crazy proud of!

We’re still so proud of this DIY! Check out our Ikea Rast Hack here!

February 

February started out so good. Why? Because Tom Brady and The Patriots WON THE FREAKIN’ SUPER BOWL and I’m still so stoked about it! (Highlight of my year, maybe.)

In March, I made a drastic decision and chopped off my hair. (I loved it for a few weeks, then went right back to missing my long locks!)

April 

April was hands down our laziest month! I was in a weird mood all month because I had just finished a long term sub job I really loved, and Trev was super busy with work. So all our weekends looked like this…

May brought us beautiful weather, and better spirits! We started May celebrating our favorite Veterans with Tight Lines for Troops. If you’re not sure what Tight Lines is, click here! It’s definitely worth the read!

December

And December? Well December was giant mush of Christmas fun. While I still feel like I didn’t get to do everything I love to do at Christmas time, and Christmas didn’t feel like it even came this year, we still had a pretty awesome December. Trev FINALLY made it to her first Sleighbell Parade! (I’ve only been trying to get him to go for 7 years HAHA)
