2016: the worst/best

2016

January:

We celebrated Dallin’s 27th Birthday with friends at our favorite – David’s Kitchen

I had the opportunity to walk through the new Provo Temple open house. It was beautiful!

Carlie Loyd was named Player of the Year!

February:

Jamberry launched some new product babies and I got to get up on stage with one of my all time favorite people to announce them. V Steve Jobs of us! #girlbossmoment

My grandparents celebrated 56 years since their first date on Valentines day.

I went to St George with my parents over President’s Day weekend. We saw Deadpool – no one warned me!! Not a movie you want to watch with your parents.

March:

My cousin Keara returned from her Mission in South Korea. You can see a video from her return {here}.

I went on an amazing girls trip to Laguna Beach with my MAMS.

April:

Oh! I MOVED TO BROOKLYN!!

May:

I fell in love with Brooklyn

I ate NYC Pizza everyday because I could

Dallin started a new job

June:

I celebrated my 24th Birthday… alone, in LA. #thanksjamberry

I ran into Bernie Sanders, Fred Armisen, John Stamos and Paula Abdul while participating in an event for Jamberry.

I spent some time in Utah (couldn’t keep away for too long). While I was there I was able to listen to my Grandma Lena receive her patriarchal blessing. One of the most profound experiences of my life. She died later that month which made this experience even more special.

July:

Spent 4th of July weekend in Colorado for our new niece, Coco’s blessing day. I love being an aunt. You can see a video from our trip {here}

I started a new job, I love it! #girlbossmoment

We spent a weekend on the north shore of Long Island with some friends. I love living so close to the beach.

August:

I spent a week in Florida for Jamberry (I couldn’t let go of them either). It was a great way to end my time there. I love the Jamberry team. They kick started my career and my confidence *you know who you are! #girlbossmoment #becauseofjamberry

We visited Coney Island for the first time and Dallin finally got to try Nathan’s!

September:

We went to Washington DC! See a video from that trip {here}

We said goodbye to Oscar, our family Bulldog. He was the sweetest, ugliest, most adorable puppy and we miss him.

I went through a friend breakup/reevaluation and it was really hard.

We have season tickets to NYCFC games!! Watch a fun video from a game {here}

October:

We welcomed our baby nephew, Remy, to the world. See pic {here}.

Dallin and I celebrated 4 years of marriage

I attended a networking workshop at Refinery29 which made me feel like ‘I made it’! This big city is mine for the taking! #girlbossmoment

November:

My parents came to visit!!!! You can see pics from their visit here

Witnessed the most depressing election of my lifetime. I feel like America finally let me believe that anything is possible and then gut punched me back into reality. I’m over it now. I’ll keep fighting for equality, religious freedom, freedom of speech and of the press, and for women’s jeans that actually have pockets!

To all the little girls watching…never doubt that you are valuable and powerful & deserving of every chance & opportunity in the world. – Hillz

I went to Toronto for Commodity to tour the coolest manufacturing facility of my life. I also was able to attend an event at Hearst tower for Commodity, another ‘I made it’ moment. #girlbossmoment

December:

This season in NYC is unlike any other. You can see pics from our festivities {here}

Commodity launched a new line of premium fragrances – so yummy! #girlbossmoment

And… I’m ending this worst/best year on the highest note possible… I get to see my sister in 4 days. We are going to pick her up in the DR. I am so excited I’ve had a tummy ache for weeks. I’m sure there will blog posts of the trip so stay tuned.

 

 

This year was the hardest and most rewarding year of my life. I’m really excited for 2017! I can’t wait for Donald to be impeached 😉 All jokes aside, I’m not joking (sorry grandpa), I am so hopeful for 2017.

I’ve decided not to set any New Years Resolutions this year because they always set me up to fail. However, I will be using this {goal planner} (Yes, this is a shameless plug for my friend Amanda’s new business #girlbossmoment).

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years!!
