Dec 26, 2014

 With my big holiday Open-House behind me, I am ready to breathe and think about some of the other things that I wanted to accomplish this break.  A reflection of 2014, of course!


14. A Favorite Quote

My grandma passed away very unexpectedly this holiday season.  This quote has been very helpful to me.

13. Favorite Article of Clothing

I think it has to be thick, thick tights or leggings.  If they have fleece in them...even better!

12. Favorite Movie I Watched

Hands down favorite!!


 11. Favorite TV Series

I have become seriously hooked on "Once Upon A Time."  I just can't seem to get enough of it this season.  This may be because Anna and Elsa were on the show this season!


 10. Favorite Restaurant 

 My Ben and I got a little hooked on having lunch at the Honey Baked Ham store.  It.is.just.tooooo.tasty!


 9. Favorite New Thing I Tried

 This is....YUM!!


8. Favorite Gift You Received

 My husband gave me the gift of new glasses this year.  THANK YOU! I am not a contacts girl and wear glasses everyday.  And my current glasses are oooolllldddd!  I can't wait to get the phone call that my new glasses are ready for pick up!

7. Favorite Thing You Pinned

 Completely not school related (because there are too many of those pins) but I really love looking at pretty clothes.


6. Favorite Blog Post

 Back in January I wrote about a fluency idea that came to me "in the moment."  And it was a success.  I loved this post!


5. Favorite Accomplishment

This is actually not my accomplishment, but we are a team so it counts for this reflection.  This year my husband finally started to put himself out there in the "art world."  It has been so much to take our girls to his art shows.  They are so proud of him.  I am so proud of him.  And I can't wait to see what 2015 brings for him.

 4. Favorite Photo

 I could not pick one.

The first roller coaster ride

A family vacation

3. Favorite Memory

 First time at the ocean with a four and five year old. Magical.

 2. 2015 Goal

 The goal that keeps coming to my mind is balance.  Working towards a healthy balance between all parts of my life.

1. One Little Word

CALM.  I want to keep working towards that balance and having calm in my life.


  1. Looks like 2014 was a busy year for you and your family. Hope 2015 is wonderful!


  2. So fun to read! I wasn't going to join this party, but now it looks fun, perhaps I'll give it a go. Have a wonderful 2015!!!

  3. I'm sorry to hear about your grandmother. I hope 2015 is filled with many memories to smile about.
