Year in Review {April, May, June}


Hello and happy seven days until Christmas. Golly goodness, it's truly right around the corner. One measly week away, I can hardly stand the excitement. Today I'm sharing round two of my year end recaps. The middle of the year lots of things were happening and we continued our multiple trips a month for kickball and family fun.

Re-posted my engagement pictures as a throw back.

Shared a heartbreaking post about my grandmother's death anniversary.

After years of patiently waiting, I finally met my BOFF! She flew in from Dallas for the weekend and it was EPIC! We celebrated my bday, had dinners, went to church and had a blast together. It was so wonderful meeting her and it solidified our soul-mate status.The weekend was too short, but it was AMAZING and one for the books!!!

CELEBRATED MY THIRTY FIRST BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!

Rejoiced in the rising of our Savior, on Easter weekend.

Finally dropped a huge stressful and negative weight in my life. #neverfeltbetter #youcantryandspinit #buteveryoneknowsthetruth #copycatsthattalksmackmakemelaugh

Flew to Austin for our third kickball tournament of the year. This time the sissys joined us and we had a blast in the city. Unfortunately, the tournament ended badly and started a big of a spiral on our team. However, the trip was fantastic!

Started the month feeling inferior about my body and weight. #dumbIknow

Was saddened to learn that Super Teddy lost his fight with Menkes and went to be with God. Even though I never knew him or his family, I bawled when I heard the news. Fly HIGH, Super Teddy!

Traveled to Kent State for Le Husband's baseball reunion weekend. It was super cold, even the native Ohioans thought it was chilly for May. I bought two sweatshirts from the book store to stay warm and a hat to support the flashes. We toured the campus, saw the May 4th shooting memorial, watched a lot of baseball and had a great time with his teammates.

There was a huge shake-up at work that left me a lil nervous. It was something I kind of felt was coming, but when it happened it was a shock. Things are okay now, but it was a bit nerve racking at the time.

I confessed my thoughts on marriage and it was hilarious.

We traveled to Cincinnati to celebrate Memorial weekend with Le Husband's family.

Posted about lifting, because I saw too many women just doing cardio! WEIGHTS ARE YOUR FRIENDS!

Played in and WON our first Women's tournament as a team. It was an eye opening weekend, for sure.
 

Traveled to PA for a kickball tournament. It went realy poorly and there was a lot of drama because of people's lack of drive. Le Husband and I almost walked away from the team. 

Got GEEKED about the World CUP!

Seven days after our horrific defeat, the team traveled to VA Beach and stomped the competition. We managed to get back to our roots and WON the tournament. #anythingcanchangeinsevendays

Watched the USA BEAT GHANA IN THE WORLD CUP! It was one of the greatest sports moments of my life when we scored both goals and then celebrated at the end of the game. EPIC BAR MOMENT!

Ventured down to SOMD to play in a kickball tournament with my BFFER and watched the USA play again.

Posted my first coffee date.

Secretly started our Alaskan vacation, without giving blog land the heads up!

Come back next week for July, August and September!!!!

    My lil bit of cheer was finally watching The Holiday this season. It's become one of my favorite movies and I fall in love with the cast every time I watch it. Jude Law is perfection, isn't he?

Jessica said...

SO crazy how many good things you guys crammed into those short few months - especially that amazing trip to Alaska! I love going back through all of your most amazing posts and remembering the fun, along with the not so fun. I still cry when I think about sweet Teddy. He and Caleb were so close in age - less than a month apart - and my heart still breaks for that sweet Mama when I think about her loss. I still check her website periodically to read journal entries she posts. Fly high Teddy, indeed.

I freaking LOVE The Holiday. I'm really not a huge fan of Jude Law but he is pretty fabulous in that movie.

You guys get to see so many fun places thanks to kickball! Still praying for sweet Teddy's family daily. Did you see they had a healthy baby girl a couple of months ago? She's adorable!

Oh my goodness what a good hunk of man meat he is! I love that movie but always forget about it. Isn't that weird? You had another 3 busy months, holy cow!

Kenzie Smith said...

Sounds like you had a lot of ups and downs in these few months. Glad that you and your team were able to win a few championships! I bet that upped the morale :D I love your Easter dress!

Emmy said...

Loved your marriage confessions post- my husband is a twitcher when he first falls asleep, so yeah, no cuddling when it is sleeping time. Okay I read the post quickly about meeting your friend, but what does BOFF stand for? So glad you hit it off in and had such a great time.

Thanks for linking up!
