Time to do another year in review! As cliche as it sounds, time sure does fly!
All-in-all, it’s been a good year full of changes, blessings, and lessons.
No need to unpack it all here, let’s take a look!
Started off with a New Year’s Day lunch at The Cheesecake Factory and a Sooners loss in the playoffs.
Had a few play dates with Layla
Found out my company would be having a mass layoff due to the drop in oil.
Watched the Super Bowl
Made an impromptu trip to Ponca City to eat at Perkins. Breakfast, pie, and muffins to go.
Walked the dogs a bunch
Visited an RV show with Will’s parents
Celebrated 12 years of marriage
Survived the company layoffs. Completely thankful but wrecked by the whole process.
Took a trip to Colorado with my parents and Layla, and visited my grandparents. ❤️
Did terribly on my bracket (as usual)
Visited Will’s grandparents and admired their creeping flock
Took lots of walks
Interviewed for a new job, and it ended up with a conversation with my previous boss about possibly returning to my old company.
Turned 33, ate lots of cake
Went to the Red and White game
Attended a baby shower for one of my dearest friends
Took Layla to the park
Saw Nick Vijiucic speak at church
Left my “dream” company after much prayer
and went back to my previous job and picked up right where I left off (how sweet were they!?) and now work close to home and for the best boss ever.
Made another trip to Perkins. More breakfast, pie, and muffins to go.
Walked the dogs a bunch
Went to a wedding in Tulsa and saw Will’s cousin get hitched
Took a ton of family photos at the birthday party. The theme for pics was red, white, and blue but apparently based on the below it was only blue. Haha
Had dinner with Marisa and family!
Went to Fairfax for work
Celebrated Layla’s 4th birthday
Top Golf work/family outing
Attended the Hillsong concert

Coffee with a former coworker and friend
More pup walking
Welcomed new neighbors (said goodbye to my parents who moved 😩)
A trip to Iowa for the OU-ISU game
A weekend with my dear Gran and time with family
Voted- and yes, there’s a toilet in the background. As dirty as the election got, it felt appropriate.
Thanksgiving with Will’s family
My work Christmas party!
A rainy and super fun win at Bedlam
Made Christmas crafts
It’s been a year of ups and downs and God’s blessing and provision. I’m so thankful for all He’s doing. I’m praying 2017 brings more of Him in our lives and wisdom in all we do.
Thanks for sticking around here. May you and yours enjoy this last day of the year and soak up lots of good memories.
Check in soon for more! Until then, Happy New Year!
