The Best of 2014

2014 was an amazing, crazy year!  I crammed e-v-e-r-y adult thing a person could hope to check off their list (short of a baby) in one year.  Laying in bed, hopefully without a hangover from last night's festivities I wanted to share with you what I thought made 2014 one of the best yet!

  1. JAMS: By far the best new music of the year comes from Little Big Town.  I don't care if you're a Country music fan or not - you at least need to listen to Karen Fairchild's power vocals on Girl Crush.
  2. PRODUCT: This amazing product fell into my hands very late in the year thanks to my little sister Caitlin.  It's a one size fits all hair product that will not leave you disappointed no matter what type of locks you have.  TRY IT!  On sale at CVS now.
  3. DIY:  My favorite Pinterest success was a sweet 21st birthday crown.  So cute that I wanted to figure out a way to wear it for all my unbirthdays.
  4. BLOG LOVE:  Not a new blog and not even new to me, but I really dug all the fashion content from Shop Dandy this year.  She's a real chick wearing real clothes.  You can actually find pieces of her outfits at your local stores!
  5. CELEBRITY NEWS: Judge me, but my favorite celeb drama this year was Amanda Bynes.  Move over Kardashians!  This girl does NOT look good in cars (bad lighting) and is just trying to get herself back to New York City.  Sorry girl, I was really hoping fashion school would work out.
  6. APP:  If you're overwhelmed by which photo app to download I'll help you narrow it down -VSCO Cam is the best!  There's a bit of a learning curve, but it's like mini-photoshop and it will take your Instagram to the next level.
  7. PARTY THEME:  My girl friend Amber invited us to an 80's Ski Lodge Party this holiday season.  Ugly Sweater parties are out.  All 80's...all the time.
  8. COCKTAIL:  Raspberry Basil Limoncello Cocktail - a long name for a fancy pants drink.  I'm not going to lie to you, this drink is a lot of work.  The upside is that it's totally worth it, completely delicious and sneaks up on you.  It was just the right ingredient for a wild girls night in.  
  9. TV SHOW: If you're not watching How to Get Away With Murder then we can't be friends.  This is exactly what you need to do this weekend - catch up!
  10. LIFE:  As I said, a LOT when down in 2014 for me and the mister.  My top Instagram photo reflects just one of the many happy moments this year... Getting MARRIED to my best guy!

I cannot wait to see what 2015 brings for us this year, but I have a feeling it's going to keep getting better!

My Weekend According to My iPhone

No wi-fi at work today meant all work and no play.  So I'm just now taking a break from catching up on Nashville (great by the way) to share my weekend with y'all.  Sorry, I had to.  Fall is playing hide and go seek here in Sacramento so my brilliant walk idea on Saturday turned out to be quite toasty.  I can also still feel those three and a half miles in my calves... guess that means I need to hit it a little harder at the gym!  Mr. Goddard finally made it to his first hockey game and I was glad that his SIL was able to join us and cheer along with me.  On Sunday morning I woke up in the mood to BAKE - our oven issues seem to finally be resolved and so I celebrated with my second favorite cupcake.. mint chocolate chip!  Hopefully I can post the recipe this week because they were a big hit at work.  I also went to this very cool event in Sacramento that just recently started, but I'll share more on that later.  Commercial break is over.. back to Nashville!
