2016 Challenges Wrap Up

Now that 2016 is over, it’s time for me to let everyone know how I did with all my challenges over the last year. Overall, I think I did fairly well. The overarching theme this year was that I did pretty well READING the books, but not so great on REVIEWING the books. Some of the challenges required reviewing as part of the challenge, and those are the ones I […]

There was double XP and stardust event going on and we tried to take advantage of it as much as possible. We even dubbed it “Operation Level 30” for me because I was level 27 at […]

A group of people from my work decided to do a Harry Potter themed one for some bonding and asked if I was interested. Of course I said YES, and I’m so glad I did! […]

Life Busy worklife – This month my work life has been kind of hectic. We had some trainings going on in different departments. I was busy socializing with people who I don’t get to see very often. It was all very fun but tiring! I even got to go to an Angels game with some of my coworkers – which was a fun night. The last week of the month, […]

August Wrap Up

Life Miranda Lambert Concert – I went to a Miranda Lambert concert early in the month and it was so fun! I don’t go to concerts often so this was a fun and different thing for me to do. “J” isn’t a huge fan of her, but he came with me anyway for a fun date night. Miranda Lambert sounds the same live as she does on her albums and […]

We love our new place and it already feels like home! I got my braces off in July, which I was SO excited about! This was my second time around with braces and […]

May and June Wrap Up

Blog I went to Hawaii in June for a family reunion and I had such a blast! First of all, it was fantastic to see so many of my family members in one place, at one time. I hadn’t seen some of my cousins in years so I loved having a chance to catch up with them. Second of all, it was me and my husband’s first time visiting Hawaii […]
