We celebrated last night by getting dressed up and eating a delicious dinner at Wink, the restaurant that we became engaged at.
I even had my hair and make up done at Blast Blow Dry with the same stylist and make up artist that did my hair and make up on our wedding day.
I also completed a big personal goal of mine yesterday when I attended my 100th ever barre class. I did this with 6 months of barre studio membership, the last 5 months being consecutive. I attended 98 of the classes at Define (both Midland and Austin locations) and 2 of the classes at Barre3 in Austin. When I got home, Brendan and my mom surprised me by putting these candles on a cake we had leftover.
On Tuesday, Brendan had a great time at the Longhorns vs. Huskies game, especially since UConn won. I felt conflicted about who to root for, but I was happy he was happy.
2015 was also (unofficially) the year of the baby. Friends Peggy and Eric welcomed daughter, Audrey, in January. After a bit of a lull, there was a baby boom: friends Will and Missy welcomed daughter Lyla in August, while friends Jennifer and Michael welcomed son, Sidney, in September. My cousin Stephen and his wife Casey welcomed son, Callen, in October, and 3 weeks later, friends Julie and Dave welcomed daughter, Ellie. Just 2 days later, friends Lauren and Steve welcomed son, Alex. In November, friends Justin and Lauren welcomed daughter Morgan, and in December friends Bill and Megen welcomed son, William. If you lost count, that is 8 babies in 2015 and 7 of them in a span of 4 months. The fun continues next year, as friends Curtis and Katie are expecting a baby in March and Brendan's cousin Jack and his wife Becky are expecting a baby in June. We are very happy about all the new additions and thrilled for our friends.
I'm not making resolutions for 2016, except for resolving to draft a list of 6 specific and reasonable goals on the first day of each month of the year. So far, I have 3 goals for January: Organize my closet, attend 17 barre classes, and cook 3 recipes from my new cookbook, Inspiralized. Tonight, my dear friend Corley is coming over for dinner. 2016 is off to a great start.
We hope for health and happiness for each and every one of you, friends. Happy 2016!
