2015: A Year In Review

I've said it before and I'll say it again...these are my
least favorite blog posts to write because they take forever, but my most favorite ones to read. I hope you enjoy a look back on the year 2015.

-We rang in the New Year with our friends, Nick & Paige, Kortney & Josh and Emily & Zac. At the time, I had only hung out with these girls once before, but I knew their boys because Aaron has been friends with them since high school. It's so funny because since then we have hung out with them numerous times and made lots of FUN memories and I'm so glad we all became friends! We will be ringing in the New Year with them again and I can't wait.

New Year's Day we went on an epic duck hunting trip with our men. We may have almost sat in a skunk nest.

 I also got to experience the Dallas Market for the first time and got to spend the day with these sweet friends from Mammoth. It was so much fun and I'm so glad I got to go with them! Miss you both.

At the end of January, I started a new job working as the Outside Sales Rep for State Beauty Supply and I still absolutely love it! Thankful to have a job that I love in the beauty industry.

In January, I also got the bright idea to open up an Etsy shop. I have put my shop on vacation for the past few months so I could catch up on life and relax during the holidays, but I have plans to open it back up in the next few weeks so check back here if you're in the market for a baby/toddler gift or any kind of personalized gift:

-We spent Valentine's Day with my best friend and her husband in Dallas at Top Golf. It was our first time to go and we had a blast.
 -We also made our first big purchase and bought a new (new to us) SUV.

-We celebrated my Grandpa's 90th Birthday with a fun weekend trip with the whole family at Camp Canyon.

-We celebrated my birthday with a super fun camping trip with some of my favorite people!

-I received the greatest birthday gift and found out my best friend was expecting a bundle of joy!

-We moved from the tiny "Love Shack" into a nice, spacious rent house. That made 3 moves in 3 years for me. I never want to move again!

-Took a weekend trip to visit Aaron's friends from college and hunt turkey. Of course, I didn't hunt, I just hung out with the girls :)
-Spent a weekend in Galveston with my mom, celebrating the anniversary/vow renewal of my sweet friend Robbin.

-Went on a kayak fishing trip with my brother and his wife on Memorial Day.

-Went to the Blackhawk concert and got WAY too excited about it! We've been jamming out to their CD on all our road trips ever since. Aaron is now hooked and has requested to see them in concert again.

-Celebrated our 2nd Anniversary

-Took a trip back to Mammoth Spring to visit friends and help with the fishing derby. It was so great to see everyone and it made us really really miss that place and all the wonderful people in it.

-Had a blast at our 4th Annual Family Reunion at Fin and Feather Resort in Tahlequah. Can't wait until the next one.

-Aaron spent a week in Canada fishing with my brother, dad, and a group of guys.

-Attended the Turnpike Troubadours concert with my brother and his wife.

-Spent a nice relaxing weekend in a cabin in Broken Bow with a group of couple friends.
-Took a girl's trip to Ft. Worth to celebrate my aunt's birthday. It was SO much fun!

Met this precious baby boy for the first time and took his newborn pictures. I haven't seen him since and I'm having withdrawals :(

- Went on the hottest Labor Day camping trip in the history of ever, but it was still a blast!

-Celebrated Aaron's 28th birthday with a fun date night and family dinner.

-Attended our first wedding of 2015....and it was the most fun wedding EVER!

-Hosted my best friend's baby shower.

-Girls shopping trip to Canton! We had so much fun and found lots of goodies!

-Saw The Band Perry in concert and loved every minute of it!

-Watched the Memphis Tigers beat Tulsa University and got to visit with my cousin, Brad!

-Found out that I'm going to be an aunt!! Cannot wait to meet this baby.

-Took our 2nd trip to Canton in one month and came home with even more goodies.

And a huge thanks to all my photography clients in 2015! I loved getting to capture your special moments. I decided to take a break from photography towards the end of this year, and it has been so nice, but I definitely miss it so I may just take on a little more in 2016...we'll see!

And in case you are interested in previous year in review posts, you can find them here:

2015, you were a great year filled with lots of blessings. Thank you, Lord for our amazing families, the best friends we could ask for, for your precious gift of life and all the sweet babies that were born and soon to be born, and for all the wonderful memories we made and fun times we had this past year. I pray that 2016 will be just as good, if not better!

Whew, that was a long one. Thanks for reading, you guys are the best! I hope you all have a happy and safe New Year!! Cheers to 2016! I can't wait to see what's in store.
