The last day of 2018—> HOW IN THE WORLD DID THIS YEAR GO BY SO FAST?
The best picture we got before church:
Our Sunday started how it usually does with the lack of any personal bubbles followed by chocolate chip pancakes. Both girls slept in until 8 and it felt glorious to sleep until then too.
And then we were off to church! I start teaching the 8 year olds next Sunday but Andrew and I were with the 3 year and under crowd yesterday so we came home exhausted but Skye had the time of her life ha.
The most important event from after church was making a birthday cake for my brother-in-law. Brooke always surprises me with how good she is at frosting a cake.
Is it just my eyeballs or are they twins?!
We got some more snow again yesterday…
Which meant that a soup night was the best option. We had this soup and my sister-in-law brought chili too!
So much partying.
It’s always fun for me to go through and see what posts were viewed the most each year. I thought I would share them here too in case you want to check any of them out. It’s been an amazing year with many highs and of course some lows (because that is just how life goes and it makes the highs that much better;). Thanks for joining me and I can’t wait to get to know each other even better in 2019!
Here are the top 10 posts of 2018:
*A Post on my Religion and Beliefs! The comments of this post were the absolute best. It was so fun to read about everyone’s beliefs and thoughts on things that are so important to us.
*St George Marathon Race Recap! —> After 8 years of listening to me talking about my dream for a sub 3 marathon, it finally happened. It was a dream race day for me and my mental/nutritional/training game finally all came together. I may or may not reread this post every week or so to remember it all and relive the day:).
*A Very Awful Day but We are Okay—> This post was about me and Skye getting in a car accident. We were stopped and my car was rear-ended and totaled. It was the scariest moment of my life when it happened and not knowing for a few minutes if Skye was okay. Thank goodness for carseats.
*Skye’s 6 Week Update! This post was up there in views… how did Skye get so big so fast?!
*We Moved + A Bun Tutorial! We sure weren’t planning on moving when we did but it all kind of happened suddenly and I’ve loved sharing more with you! You can see a bit of our house in this post and this post.
*7 Months and Why I Stopped Breastfeeding. I am pretty sure I did it all wrong but we are all just trying our best, right? Maybe by our 5th kid I’ll figure it out… either way Brooke and Skye have both turned out amazing:)
*Sissy’s New Workout Room… Her Before and After is Amazing! My sister is very talented with remodeling and her workout room is awesome now.
*My Blogging 8 YEAR ANNIVERSARY. It feels like just yesterday that I started blogging and sharing with you three times a day my funny teaching stories and pictures of very unappetizing oatmeal creations that I thought were cool. Time flies!
*Hungry Runner Brother Guest Post (about his journey to losing over 120 lbs and running his first 1/2 marathon)! He is now training for a marathon and able to run around chasing his kids all of the time. He feels so much better and I LOVE his love for running now:)
*What’s My Plan Now and One Regret. After I finally got my big goal, just chatting about my goals for the future with my running!
And I’ll include the 11th most viewed post too because I liked this one;).
*What Was Different This Time Vs The Other Times! I talk a lot about what I did different during my last marathon training cycle to help me get to the sub 3 compared to all of my previous marathon training cycles!
And as of midnight we are in 2019 and I’m really excited for the year ahead. I can’t wait for our ultra and doing something I’ve always wondered about… this is getting us out of our comfort zones big time. Hopefully, I’ll be getting back into some speed in the summer and doing some of my favorite local races. I’m excited for all of the training, lots of time with the family, seeing where Andrew ends up with work once he graduates, continuing to do the job I love and all of the random day to day stuff in between.
I hope your 2019 is amazing and that if 2018 was a hard one that you are able to look forward to this next year with hope. I remember when things were really rough for me I changed all of my passwords to 2015WILLROCK when the new year rolled around because I decided the self-fulfilling prophesies are real for me.
What are you looking forward to in 2019?
What are your New Year’s Eve plans? Will you be staying up until Midnight?
-We have no idea and my goal is to make it until 11.
What was your favorite race in 2018?
Do you look like anyone in your family a lot?
