The Friday Faves | 2019 Edition

Happy 2020 Friends!
I had thought about getting my act together and getting this post up before the new year, but that just didn't happen.
I just was living in the moment. 
Nothing really crazy or busy was going on honestly.
Just trying to enjoy the couple of weeks away from the office, at home with X, etc.

Today is a combination post for you ;)
Today I am sharing my favorite moments from 2019, as well as my favorites from this past week!

Linking up with Andrea, Narci & Erika for


I kicked off 2019 with some new workout clothes and a new lifestyle program and fell in love with it!
It was truly the best decision I made for myself!

X also tried out indoor soccer and he loved it!


X had a blast at his first Cleveland Cavaliers game!

We joined some friends for glow tubing!
X was not a fan of the height of the hill, but all in all we had a great time!

Valentine's Day at school!
Love getting to join him for his classroom parties!

I can't share my favorites of 2019 without sharing this Revlon Hair Dryer!
It seriously is a game changer!

Mic and I had a great date night at the Kane Brown concert!


We enjoyed watching X and the rest of the 1st graders perform their doggy program.

Demo began on our home 🙌🙌🙌


Spring soccer began for X's U8 team.
They played so well!

It was also time for baseball practices to begin.


Spring soccer came to an end mid May and the kiddos celebrated with ice cream :)

I also celebrated Mother's Day with my favorite guys with a day in Columbus, and some super cute homemade gifts from X :)

The end of May had us visiting X's class for their presentation of the book they all made together :)

And just like that 1st grade was over!

The last weekend of May officially kicked off Baseball season.


School was out and it was time for all the camps!
X kicked off the month attending basketball camp.

And then we headed north to Cleveland for football camp with the Cleveland Browns!

I headed south to Columbus for some quality time with some of the best friends at the NKOTB concert!

And after 5 weeks of 3 games a week, baseball season ended right before the end of the month.

We also got to celebrate my sweet niece turning 3 years old!


The MLB All - Star break was in Cleveland this year!
X had so much fun attending some of the festivities with my dad and his cousin Kellen :)

Then it was time for the three of us to head south for a much needed family beach vacation!

Such a great week just relaxing and recharging together :)

We got back home and headed right back into it all with soccer and science camps!

We ended the month attending the DudePerfect Tour in Columbus.
We all loved it!


We hit up Cleveland Browns training camp and sweated like crazy, but loved watching our guys get ready for the new season.

And because we can't get enough, we headed to the stadium for the Brown and Orange scrimmage :)

We helped my step brother and his wife celebrate 10 years of marriage along Lake Erie.

And we finished off the month with X starting 2nd grade with one of our very favorite teachers :)


We jumped right back into all the sports after Labor Day!
X played in his first season of flag football and LOVED it!

Fall soccer began with X on a new team and moving up to U10.
He did SO GOOD this season!

I had a lot of fun with my dad at Sunday Night Football despite the Browns losing.


It was Oktoberfest time!
We love our annual trip to Minster, Ohio :)

This cutie was the Star Student!

The end of October came so fast!
These boys ended the fall soccer season in 2nd place playing the most intense game I have ever seen!
We can't wait to see how they do in the spring!

Mic and I also had another fun date night attending the Carrie Underwood concert!

And flag football came to an end as well.
This time X's team came away with the championship trophy!

We had so much fun cheering on our local high school boys soccer team as they won the District and Regional titles!

And we celebrated Halloween at school!


We kicked off the month with trick-or-treat (ours was rained out on the 31st) with lots of friends :)

We celebrated my grandma's 85th birthday with her :)

Basketball season began with lots of practices!

I celebrated a sweet friend and her soon to be baby boy :)

We attended our first Friendsgiving and loved every minute of it!

And then headed north to have Thanksgiving at my dad's house :)


Basketball games have begun!

We celebrated the cutest guy I know turning 8 years old at the local trampoline park!

It was once again time for the annual Father/Daughter Browns game for my birthday :)

FriendsMas was super cozy and super fun!

And just like that I turned 41!

X's school Christmas party was the perfect ending before we headed into Christmas break!

X and I enjoyed a fun slumber party by the Christmas tree :)
Let me be honest...X enjoyed it.
This 41 year old was hurting after sleeping on the floor!

X had so much fun helping a friend celebrate his 8th birthday right before Christmas :)

Christmas Eve I decided to try making Christmas Crack.
It was a huge hit!!

These Christmas dishes might just be my favorite thing my MIL owns!

Due to our living situation, we surprised X with his big Christmas gift at my in-laws house on Christmas Eve.

A ping-pong table!

This sweet boy accompanied me to church for a candlelight service :)

 I woke up on Christmas morning and used my favorite mug for my coffee :)

Love these two guys :)

And then we ended the year with some of our best friends!

And that my friends was 2019!
Looking forward to what 2020 brings!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

XOXO ~ Vanessa
