2015 Highlights + 2016 Goals

Hi friends!
VERY long time no see. Sorry about that…life got crazy and blogging was put on the back burner.

I promised you a giveaway, which will be posted tomorrow morning. It is already written, so no flaking out this time 😉

2015 was a BIG year for me!

2 half marathons

1 trip to Montana for Kyle’s childhood BFF’s wedding

1 trip to Kauai

Getting tossed around in the ocean 😉

My first duathlon (run bike run)! And came in 3rd place in my AG

1 kitty adoption

My guys 🙂 Meet Jax!

AND for the big news (which you already know if you follow me on Instagram), we’re ENGAGED!! I’ll write a full post on this later 😉

After he proposed, this was taken at his parents’ house where he surprised me by having his family and my family waiting 🙂

2016 goals (in no particular order)

Blog more regularly…
Unfortunately because of my new job, grad school, and now planning a wedding :), I have very little free time. But I really miss blogging and would like to stay on top of it. I’m hoping to post a minimum of 1 post/week.

Set a new PR in the half marathon!
1:57 has been my PR (personal record) for so long and it’s driving me crazy. To be fair, I haven’t deserved a new PR since setting that one. I haven’t properly trained for a half marathon since I set that PR, so I can’t expect to improve. Right? I haven’t picked a race yet, but Kyle said he would help me train. (He isn’t a runner but I think having someone there to motivate you during speed work makes a huge difference).

Plan a wedding!
This one is the most exciting for me! Kyle and I decided on a spring 2017 wedding, so we need to get movin’!

House projects
As you will see tomorrow, Kyle and I have done some minimal (i.e. decoration/painting changes) since moving in to the house we bought in 2014. I would like to continue our house projects in baby stages, as the more we do this, the more our house feels like OUR home!

Our living room this past Fall, which is mostly complete (minus some art work for the walls).

Alright! Stay tuned! Tomorrow I will have an awesome giveaway related to home decor 🙂

What was the biggest thing that happened to you in 2015?

What are your goals for 2016?
