As we close out the 2015 chapter of our lives, I thought it’d be a fine time to reflect back on the past year of this little blog by highlighting a few posts throughout each month of the year.
In January I shared what Maddie’s closet looks like as well as a few key pieces to any kids’ wardrobe and kicked off the Mini Fashionista with this post. Also in January, we lost our little Sadie Bug to the great outdoors.
February brought us some more of the Mini Fashionista, my go-to iced coffee recipe (along with thoughts of a stay at home mom), a blogger event with Graco in Atlanta, as well as how to throw a Valentine’s Day party without breaking the bank.
In March, we continued the Mini Fashionista and this time the boys were a part of it as well. March was also the month that I realized I was too short for normal people jeans & the month that Owen started part day prek in Georgia.
April brought in the Avengers, more of the Mini Fashionista showing off her new haircut. I talked about why I put myself in a mommy time out, and I just talked about life in general – car troubles, food I’ve eaten in Columbus, Georgia. April was also the month that I used Band-Aids inappropriately. Ha!
In May we started the moving to Colorado process! I also shared some super easy body scrub, a gift guide for golf lovers, a Mother’s day wrap up, and we spent lots of time at the pool! Oh, and the kids moved up to 1st & 3rd grade! Yay!
We spent June lounging around at the pool and watching all of our stuff be moved across the United States. We finally made it to Oklahoma in the end of June after more car troubles. *sigh* I also put together a Baby shower care package for my friends, Lisa & Ken.
August was a BUSY month for us! The kids started a new school. Maddie cried on the 1st day. I shared my obsession with my JORD watch. Fin encountered a bully. Oh, and we bought a house! Hooray! Oh, oh! We put on a mini school clothes fashion show!
September was a month of exploring Colorado! We visited Garden of the Gods, Garden of the Gods. I shared some easy DIY bird feeders as well as some tips for a stress free morning! Oh, I also shared photos of the updated living room (Spoiler alert: we painted that gross yellow color). Oh, and I stepped totally out of my comfort zone & shared some makeup looks with you guys!
In October I shared some thrifting hauls with you guys, as well as talked about the night that my kids all lied to me! Yikes, right?! I also shared some yummy milkshakes and some tasty pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies! Oh, we also had parent teacher conferences and Fin won an award for having a positive attitude!
That brings us all the way up to December! I shared our Christmas wrap up with you guys! I’m actually using this mug again today as I type this up. I talked about how my kids have their own little lives amongst themselves and how cool it is to see them having what I used to have with my siblings. own little lives. I shared with you how to put together a manly man’s stocking as well as how to make some Minion playdough. Oh! And I shared an EASY costume idea for your Elf-on-the-Shelf.
It’s been so fun putting this post together and looking back through a year of posts. I hope you guys have enjoyed it too and I hope you guys have a fabulous 2016!
Thanks for sticking around!
