2015 In Review & What’s To Come

31 Dec

I have to say, that for a change, this year was pretty great.

We all stayed healthy, we had a lot of fun, we got a dog, and we accomplished a lot in 2015.

2015 in review

We started the year with a celebration of 10 years of marriage in San Fransisco. I continued on by celebrating my 35th birthday. We had a blast on Spring Break down in Maryland. Cameron turned nine. We finished the first year that both boys were in school full day. Our summer was spent enjoying time together in Maryland. The boys had a blast at four weeks of YMCA camp. The boys went back to school and this year they’re at the same school (which makes pickups so much easier). Logan turned seven (how did that happen?). We celebrated Thanksgiving in Maryland and the weather was simply perfect. Our Christmas was the, “best ever” and our Winter Break was fun.

As I sit here and look back on this year I feel like it was the best one in a while. But with that said, there is always room for improvement and that’s all I’m hoping for in 2016.

So what’s to come in 2016 here in Mommyland?

I’m excited to bring back A Week In Mommyland, my weekly photo update. I’m thinking about renaming it but it will be back in one form or another.

I will also be giving you some monthly fitness challenges, starting with a 30 Day Squat Challenge in January.

Other things to look forward to…More of my kid approved recipes and smoothie ideas, tales of running and of course crazy shit my kids (and dog) do and any other pearls of wisdom I can bestow on you.

If there is anything you’d like to see here please feel free to let me know.

Until then…HAPPY NEW YEAR from Mommyland!

So Long 2013

31 Dec


I’m sitting here scratching my head wondering where the hell 2013 has gone.

It feels like it wasn’t too long ago that we were ringing in the New Year and here we are about to do it again. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking over the past 24 hours on the year we are about to say goodbye to, and I have to say it was not only fast and furious but it was a real roller coaster ride as well.

This was the year Bill stopped working for other people and started to work for himself. I think we’re all still trying to adjust to our new normal.

I ran the Broad Street Run for the first time this year and for the first time I consider myself a “real” runner. I’ve made an effort to be healthier both in mind and body and I have to say that I feel better now than I did ten years ago. My goal is to take the things I learned in 2013 and continue the hard work into 2014.

In 2013 we began our last year of preschool. After five years at Calvary we will say our final goodbye this coming spring. Which leads me to something else that happened in 2013…I decided my two boys are enough for me. I had been flip flopping back and forth for so long and then I realized, I’m happy with my family just the way it is.

Alright, if I’m being honest I have to say that if I could be guaranteed a little girl I’d go for a third but there are no guarantees. Oh who am I kidding, what would I do with a teenage daughter?

But I digress.

I was lucky enough to spend 13 days on a cruise ship in 2013. I saw so many beautiful, tropical places and experienced things I have never experienced before. I went zip lining through the rainforest of Antigua! I ate some of the best meals I’ve ever had during my 13 days at sea. I’m hoping that 2014 brings more cruises my way.

It’s been a wild and wooly year of celebrations and frustrations and I have to say I’m ready for a fresh start. Even though the year flew by in the blink of an eye I’m ready to say so long to 2013 and see what new adventures 2014 has to offer us here in Mommyland.

How about you? Was 2013 so good that you’re not ready to see it go or are you looking to make a fresh start with 2014?
