2016 Highlights

We are half-way through December and that means the New Year is right around the corner. 2016 was REALLY good to me!

I started the year off with a new tradition that we are continuing this year, renting out a house with other couples with children. It’s an ideal setup. There’s a babysitter so the kids can play until they tire themselves out while the grownups enjoy food, drink and good times without having to be outside in the mayhem. We all spend the night so we don’t have to worry about travel plans after the ball drops, and we have breakfast in the morning. It’s a good time. I’m looking forward to it again this year.

New Year's Eve 2016

In January I had a lovely solo birthday excursion to see Hamilton the Musical! You can see that vlog HERE. I also got my driver's license, which was a big deal for me as I continue to get over my driving anxiety.

In May I had an awesome girl’s trip to San Diego. I also attended my friend Cheyenne’s Disney Themed birthday party as Ariel and it was a blast.

In the summer we joined the local swim club which was a GREAT idea. We had some wonderful weekend time at the pool. You have to disconnect when you're at the pool (because who wants their electronics next to water?) so it offered me some well needed relaxing time. Well, as relaxed as you can get when you have a toddler in the water lol.

In June I saw the queen herself Beyonce live in concert. We also went on my favorite family trip to date, to Sesame Place.

In August I had a great run of the summer theater festival I produce, Theatre in the X.

In October I carved my first pumpkin since being an adult.

In 2016 I transitioned from powder to liquid foundation. I feel like a real adult make-up wearer now lol. I live by Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation and (affiliate linkSetting Spray.

I also started therapy in 2016 and that has been really good for me. I’ll be posting more about that in the coming weeks.

I'm looking forward to a wonderful holiday season and entering 2017 with positivity. I've decided to make my New Year's Resolution to stop living beyond my means financially. Onward and upward!
