HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Hope your 2015 is off to a great start. I worked today but had a good looking guy deliver this lunch to me!
My NYE outfit looked quite similar to my workout clothes from yesterday morning…
This is one of my favorite workout tops (I have it in 3 colors now) and just got this one on sale for $29!! I completed the Post-Christmas Calorie Burner workout from Muncher Cruncher (<– her workouts are so tough! please move to Nashville and be my trainer/BFF!!). It involved traveling burpees and tuck jumps… So I felt the 4 champagnes were justified :)
Top 14 of ’14
2014 was a great year that brought a lot of changes. I’m so lucky to have 14 favorite memories to share with you tonight! These highlights occurred before I started blogging (starting a blog was a highlight, too!), so pour a glass of wine and hop into the Pensieve with me.
1. Grizzlies Games
2. Suzi’s Engagement
My sister getting engaged was such a special time for my whole family. Her fiancé surprised her with a trip to DC (where they met), and we were able to FaceTime with them right after it happened!
3. Charleston Trip
I visited Charleston, SC for the first time in May. I’ve always wanted to go.. Such a beautiful city!
4. New Orleans Wedding
My friends Aimee and Matt got married in her hometown of New Orleans in June.
I used to live with Aimee, and Matt is a good friend from high school. Their wedding was absolutely perfect! It was also a good weekend to spend some time with some of my closest friends before moving to Nashville!
5. Phone Calls with Brent
Brent and I had met several years ago (like, 10, wow), but it wasn’t until this past June that we got reacquainted. A mutual friend reconnected us, and while I was in Memphis and he was in Nashville, we talked on the phone several times before I found out I was moving. I was so nervous before the first phone call, but I started looking forward to our chats so much! And look what I got out of those phone calls…
6. Moving to Nashville
I had lived in Memphis my entire life until this past July when I took a huge leap of faith and moved! Although I get homesick from time to time, I am so happy with my decision and am proud of myself for branching out… I have definitely grown a lot through this experience!
7. Caitlin’s Wedding
I went back to Memphis for Caitlin and Hunter’s wedding in August. I was a bridesmaid and had a blast seeing all of my friends again!
8. Women’s Running Half Marathon
I decided to sign up for this race about a week in advance, and I’m so glad I did!
9. My 10 Year High School Reunion
10. Halloween in Birmingham
So…. Brent and I surprised my sister and her fiancé by showing up dressed like this on Halloween
11. Savannah Trip
Brent and I took a trip to Savannah (got to visit both sister cities this year!) for the Rock N Roll Half Marathon! Again, it was so nice having Brent there to support me and cheer me on… And we got to spend some time exploring the city too/eating and drinking a lot!
12. Dad’s 60th Birthday
My family and I got together and planned a surprise 60th birthday party for my dad! He does so much for all of us and is always the life of the party, so it was a lot of fun planning something special for him!
13. STARTING A BLOG
Here it is! I’ve really enjoyed blogging so far. I always look forward to posting, and I appreciate everyone who has read it and supported me so far! I’m looking forward to learning more and growing the blog this year.
This year’s Christmas was extra special, since it was my first time actually “going home” for a holiday. It was wonderful and relaxing spending time with my family!
I hope you enjoyed the recap as much I enjoyed writing it and recalling all of these fun memories (or maybe it was the wine??)
I hope in 2015 you’re as happy as a corgi doing a handstand!!
