Well ladies and gents, it looks like we’ve got another year on the books!
After reading some year-end wrap-ups of some of my favorite bloggers, I couldn’t resist jumping on the bandwagon and sharing some of the highlights of my year!
January was a rather light month in the world of Lauren, as I recovered from the holiday season and prepared to get settled in for a bunch of cold weather. But the Ravens were doing well, so my office put on our fierce faces, and since my mom’s birthday was that month, I took her to Crepe du Jour for a delectable dinner.
Boyfriend and I always wait until at least February 15th to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but when we did, we celebrated with yummy sushi from Chopstix. Oh yeah, and I totally won the Super Bowl pool 🙂
March was quite snowy, but that didn’t stop my mom and two of our friends from celebrating Pi Day by making mini delicious pies!
In April, I finished my first 5k! It was finished in a red-faced and sweaty manner, but I still finished!
May was a ridiculously busy month, but that turned it into a ridiculously entertaining month as well. Boyfriend and I traveled to Crystal City, VA for a work trip, we cheered on Maryland (well, I did–Boyfriend cheered on Towson) at Ripkin Stadium, my mom and I met my brother in Philly for Mother’s Day, I took my first trip to Boston, I walked in the March of Dimes March for Babies and I started writing theatre reviews again!
In June, I said good-bye to my contract position at one company and headed back to another company, where I had worked a few years earlier. This also meant working with my mom and one of my BFFs again! Speaking of that BFF, the same week that I started back to work, Macy
got married! I may have cried…a lot.
In July, we celebrated Independence Day with the usual fanfare, I kept working on my culinary skills, and we learned that Linus’s world ends whenever Boyfriend goes to take a shower lol.
August brought about more theatre reviews (I even took my college best friend along with me to one, as seen above) and my beginning with Weight Watchers. I actually like this picture because it works as a “before face” for me.
September is birthday month, which meant my annual birthday photo collage from Macy 🙂 Boyfriend took me out for sushi, I had my annual taco dinner and since my birthday fell on the day of the Labor Day Barbecue, Boyfriend’s family sang happy birthday at the celebration and my mom brought me a cake 🙂
In October, I was able to celebrate the impending arrival of baby Lochlyn, which meant being a part of one of the funniest pictures of all time!
Typically my favorite part of November is Thanksgiving (as pictured above), but this year I was able to travel to my new favorite city, Asheville, NC! I can’t wait to go again in the spring!
December brought about a weird virus which was unfortunate, but other than that, it was all Christmas and holiday goodness–and the celebration of losing 24 pounds!!
Alright, 2016–the bar has been set. Are you ready for the Year of Lauren???
