2015 was a big and busy year for us. Below are a wrap up and highlights of the year. Keep an eye our for my Looking Ahead to 2016 post for goals, ideas, and plans for the new year!
Number of books read: 39
Favorite book: Still Alice by Lisa Genova
I never got around to posting about the other books I read throughout the rest of the year, and honestly, so much time has gone by now that I don’t think I’d do a good job, so there won’t be any posts for the books after July.. whoops.
Number of sewing projects completed: 2
Number of sewing projects still in progress: 0 (or 4; I have all the materials ready for 4 diaper pouch changing pads but have not started any of them)

Number of knitting projects still in progress: 1
Favorite craft: N/A
30 by 30
Number of items completed: 4 (13%)
Favorite: having a baby! (though it wasn’t technically on the posted list, it was on my personal list!) — favorite official, on-the-list item was buying a house.
Items achieved after birthday: 1 — I got a new tattoo shortly before Christmas. My husband and I had been talking about getting tattoos together and we decided on King and Queen chess pieces. I have the King and he has the Queen (so we always have each other — awww; or some of you may find that corny)
Bought a House – so proud of us for getting this done! My husband is someone who, when he sets his mind to doing something, will make sure it happens. So when we started talking about a house seriously, he was all in. It’s one of the things I love about him. I love our house. From the first night it felt natural for us to be here. I can’t wait for all of the memories we’ll create in this house: holidays, birthday parties, family time, etc.
We Celebrated Our 1 Year Wedding Anniversary – we had a great dinner at Del Frisco’s steakhouse, one of our favorite places to eat!
Had a Baby – I won’t gush here as I’ve done some of that in my birth announcement post, but it’s still amazing that we have a baby. I’m so excited to discover his personality and watch him grow and develop, though I know the time is going to fly by. At time of posting, he is 1 day shy of 12 weeks. I seriously cannot believe how quickly the time has gone by. I’ll be returning to work in the new year, and while I’m excited to get back to work, I’m also going to miss being around my bug all the time! (He’ll be attending our on-site daycare 2 days/week, so at least I can visit him on those days!)
I Turned 30! – I had a nice dinner out with the hubs, and my first glass of wine since January. 🙂
