Year End Review 2015 - Q/A

Yes, I have already done a similar post yesterday. But I saw this post and wanted to go along with it. 

What did you do in 2015 that you’d never done before? Oh Gosh... Hmmm.. Oh I went to Gibbs Gardens with Nanny, my Cousins and My Aunt. I have never been before and I figured getting to spend time with my family that I do not see very often was great. It was beautiful though. 

Did you keep your new years’ resolutions? Does anybody really keep their New Years Resolutions? I don't even think I made any last year. Because I am so bad at that. I like to make Goals. 

Will you make more for next year? Probably not. I will set goals for myself in 2016. But not resolutions. 

Did anyone close to you give birth? What a weird question... BUT... one of my old childhood friends who I just caught back up with recently gave birth to her Daughter. Oh and one of my Work Friends gave birth to her daughter. 


Did anyone close to you die? No, thankfully but today my Granddaddy passed away 6 years ago. 

What countries did you visit? Ummm.. None.. At All... We can't afford that... #adultproblems. I do want to go somewhere soon though.. Probably not in 2016 either. 


What would you like to have in 2016 that you lacked in 2015? I would like to have more stability, I would like to do better at saving money, I want to keep my blog a priority, actually lose weight. It is getting to that point where I need to take care of myself health-wise. I am almost 30 people. 

What date from 2016 will remain etched upon your memory? I am going to say when we bought my New 2016 Ford Escape and we got rid of the Volkswagen Passat.. Ya'll please do not ever buy a VW.. I have had the worst luck with those cars. I had 2. Both were money pits. 

What was your biggest achievement of the year? Honestly, and  this is going to sound silly.  But Matt and I actually took time and went to visit my Dad, Step-Mom, Brothers and Sister in October. We have been planning to go to Ohio for quite some time. In the 5 years Matt and I have been together he had never been to Ohio. That was fun. 


What was your biggest failure? I wouldn't say Failure. But something I could have done better, is blog consistently. Matt had set up my new domain and I did not blog for a minute. So I am going to be better at that. 

 
Did you suffer illness or injury? No, I did not actually thankfully. 

What was the best thing you bought? My Ford Escape it was the biggest purchase I made this year. 

Whose behavior merited celebration?  Matt most definitely. He started a new job and loves it. Me, I was so negative at times this year, because of my current job it is just not a good one and it really took a beating on me. 

Where did most of your money go? Ugh... Rent...Bills...Few Splurges..Some short trips to Nashville...  You know the typical adult things. 

What did you get really, really, really excited about? Um... I think I would have to say when we bought the car, few other things.. Short Trips with my Best Friend to Nashville, going to the Braves game just to see Sam Hunt play after. 

Are You:

Happier or Sadder: Happier in a way. 

Thinner or Fatter: Fatter...Gross..

Richer or Poorer: Uhhh.. about the same.. average.. 

What do you wish you’d done more of? Umm... I think... Going out more with friends.. or Traveling.. even it was for a weekend. 

What do you wish you’d done less of? Worrying about Money. It always works out.. But I think money will always be a worry thing... 

How did you spend Christmas? We actually Spent Christmas Eve with Matt's Parents and we spent Christmas Day with my Parents. It was good. 

Did you fall in love in 2015? 1 1/2 of Marriage and I fall more in love with my Husband every day. I am very lucky to have him in my life. 


How many one-night stands? Hah... Seriously... Do people still do that crap?! NONE! Thank you very much! 

Who were your best friends? Stephanie for 17 years. 

What thing did you do that was meaningful to others? Our Church Group Adopted a Family this Christmas. That was awesome. 

What were your favorite TV programs? Oh gosh.. My TV is my favorite thing.. I binge watch a lot. But I would say.. I have been loving the ID Channel, Gotham, Jessica Jones, Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, The Voice, Heartland, gosh I could go on and on. 

Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year? No. Hate is a strong word ya'll.. I don't really hate anyone. 

What was the best book you read in 2015? I have not read very many books this year... Yea that is terrible I know. Because I love reading. But I would have to say The Girl on the Train. 

What was your greatest musical discovery? Honestly, Sam Hunt, Thomas Rhett, Chase Rice, Pentatonix, Justin Bieber (yep I am a Belieber... Judge me...). I am obsessed with all of these.

What did you want and get? I wanted a Tory Burch bag, and yes I got it for my Birthday. My mama took me shopping. I actually got quite a few things that I wanted. 

What did you want but did NOT get? Apple Watch or a New Laptop. That's okay though. Matt fixed my Laptop for now.. Oh and my other Wedding band.. Maybe I can talk my husband into going to get the wedding band. 

What were your favorite films this year? The Longest Ride, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Man of. U.N.C.L.E. We saw quite a few good movies this year. 

What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you? My mama took me to brunch, took me shopping, got my nails and toes done, and we went to dinner. I turned 29. 

What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying? Not hating my job. I wish it would have gone smoother. 

What kept you sane? Matt. God. Friends. Faith.

Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most? Hmmm... that is a tough one.. Sam Hunt and Ruby Rose.

What political issue stirred you the most? Lots. I don't get into that stuff. I am not a huge fan of Politics. 

Who do you miss? My Dad. He lives in Ohio and I do not see him that much. So when I do get to see him it is a lot of fun. 

Who are the best new people you met this year? Did I meet anybody new this year? I don't think I did.. Hmm.. Lame.. 

Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2015? Live Life to the Fullest and do not ever give up, because it will always work out. For me.. Give it to God. He knows what to do. 

Quote that sums up your year:
