15 in 2015

It is New Year's Eve!
I can't wait to spend the evening with good friends ringing in 2016!
But first, let's take a look back at 15 of my favorite moments in 2015.
Of course, I wouldn't be doing that without the suggestion from the lovely ladies below :)

Way back in January I was able to attend a basketball game at my high school.
Mic and X had never been there before, so it was extra special to bring them back to a place that had a lot to do with who I am today.
A new school has now been built and opened, and the old high school has turned into a large elementary school for grades 3-6.
Of course my favorite moment of the evening was watching this guy run around on the gym floor that I spent many 4 years cheering on :)

This guy enjoyed some firsts and fun activities this year.
Like buying his very first baseball mitt,
rockin' his tumbling class,
coloring Easter eggs all by himself,
starting t-ball,
and winning his very own prize at the Blueberry Festival playing games!

We celebrated my little brother getting married this year!
I had a blast with Samantha and her friends for her bachelorette evening.
And then on May 16, 2015 this girl became my sister-in-law :)
Love these two!

After many, many, many years with my Jeep Grand Cherokee I upgraded to a Toyota Highlander.
My Jeep was so old school that I still can't figure out how to use this one!
But it is growing on me, and I love it!

Way back in February my in-laws made the decision to down size, and we made to the decision to move to Mic's childhood home.

After months of pulling my hair out moving my in-laws into their new place, we left the place we called home for the last nine years.

And officially put it on the market in late August,

and then moved!
And put up the first mailbox this 40 year old home in the country has ever had!
And at the beginning of December we handed over the keys to the new owners of Camden Court.

I had my very first Mommy/Son date with X this year!
Many more trips for ice cream and such followed :)

The three of us took a much needed vacation in June to one of our favorite spots - Savannah, Georgia!
We enjoyed the sun and sand at Tybee Island, and the beautiful sites and river in Historic Savannah.
It was a great getaway!

I live in a pretty small town with little to no shopping options.
So, I decided to give Stitch Fix a try!
I love it!
While I have only kept a couple things from the two boxes I have received so far,
I am sure it won't be long before I keep an entire box!

This guy and I celebrate 14 years of being together, and 9 years of being married.
While it isn't easy, I wouldn't want to do it with anyone else!

This goofball officially started preschool in August at a new school and it was truly the best decision we have ever made!
He loves it! We love it!
And I was able to accompany X on his very first school field trip!
So much fun!

We have some really great ones!
From cookouts & swimming, to Oktoberfest, to scarf exchanges, and more!
We just love spending time with our friends who are more like family :)

We also celebrated this guy turning 4 this year!
And after his check up, he is growing like a weed!
He may just be as tall as his daddy some day!

Every year around my birthday my dad and I go to a Cleveland Browns game together as our Father/Daughter tradition.
We have done this now for a good 30 years.
We have had some great times at those games together, and this year definitely ranks up there as one of the best!
I got to meet Hanford Dixon from the original Dawg Pound days!
As a die hard fan I was on cloud 9!

X participated in not one, but two Christmas programs at his school!
Both were adorable and he did amazing singing his songs loud and proud!

We just recently enjoyed our first (of what I hope to be many) Christmas Eve services at X's school.
I truly think I found my new home away from home :)

This guy, Mic and myself enjoyed a wonderful Christmas with friends and family!
We are truly blessed to have so many wonderful and generous people in our lives :)

And that my friends has been some of my favorite moments of 2015!
Looking forward to 2016!
Be safe!
