And We Started the New Year Running

Morning and Happy FIRST MONDAY of 2015, ladies! I know it's cliche, but I'm stoked for the fresh slate of a new year. If the first week and weekend is any indication, 2015 is going to be pretty flipping awesome. We've hit the ground running [of course] and it's not going to slow down anytime soon.

This week and weekend I…

Cooked rack of lamb at home for our New Year's Eve celebration. #anightinwasneeded #soyummy
Searing
Roasting in the oven
Our New Year's Eve dinner = DELICIOUS!
Drank some bubbly and watched the ball drop. #HOORAY FOR THE NEW YEAR!

Slept in and enjoyed the start of 2015 with a lazy coffee morning with Le Husband.

Showered and FINALLY MET MY MUFFIN, Ashley! It only took us three years, right? She was up here to ring in the new year with Rissy and I was soooo thrilled we were able to make a blate happen.

Ate a delicious and super fun brunch with Ashely and Rissy. We shared an [extra long] meal of yummy food, girlie drinks, stories and of course lots of laugher. I love blates, they are the best :)! Can't wait for our next one, hopefully soonish.
Y'ALL BOTH look great in this picture, ladies!
Spent the rest of New Year's Day watching lots of football. #somanygoodgames

Stayed up till 1am watching the buckeyes win the SUGAR BOWL. #WAYTOGOBUCKEYES!

Worked a two day work week since we flew up to Columbus on Friday for a family wedding.

Enjoyed a delicious dinner with our super cute nephew and bar fun with the rest of the family.

Ate an amazing breakfast at SuperChef's. If you are ever in the area, eat THERE!!! #thehulk.


Worked off the sugar at the gym and rocked out some pull-ups. #gettothe2015goal

Dressed up and witnessed a truly beautiful wedding. #ilovelove
Mama needs a new phone…all my photos are blurry :(
Posed for pictures, because it's fun!

Swooned at the beautiful reception venue. #candlesforthewin


Made Le Husband pose for pictures, because, le Duh!

Danced to the SNOOPY song aka the OHIO STATE song ;)!

Drank, partied and shook my booty on the dance for during an awesome reception. #weddingsaresofun.

Passed out and enjoyed sleeping in, Sunday morning.

Said our goodbyes to family, which we won't seen until later in the year. #sadface

Toured Ohio State's campus, which was beautiful. Can't wait for my first game.

Flew home on one of the scariest and most turbulent flights I've been on in a long time. So thankful for kind flight attendants and a loving husband who let me squeeze his fingers off during the plane's descent.

Watched my Cowboys WIN a nail biting playoff game against Detroit. #wedemboyz #finishthefight

How was your New Years and weekend?

Sounds like an amazing weekend. YYYEEESSS - the Cowboys win was so stressful in our house. For a moment, I seriously thought my husband was going to have a heart attack. He was so stressed, I think he stood the entire second half of the game. Thank goodness they pulled out the W.
