Tomorrow will make a month since my mom past. I cannot deny that 2015 had some great moments, and I made some wonderful memories, but the loss of my mom made 2015 the worst year ever! So I am focusing on this year, and these are the things I am looking forward to in 2016!


  • This month is pretty much over. But I saw Star Wars and that was awesome!
  • I started a Christmas gift for Neil, which is going to take me a year to complete! Every month I will contribute something to this present. It’s so exciting!


  • Double Valentines date with Jason and Devynn ❤
  • Taking my dad out to eat for his birthday. I have had to cook his birthday meal for the last 5 years because he was not been able to leave my mom, so this will be quite the treat for him!
  • Getting new eye glasses


  • I plan to start making improvements to our house, one small step at a time!
  • Hopefully some decent weather so I can start walking again with Devynn! Check out her blog https://beachedmanatees.wordpress.com
  • Easter
  • Batman vs. Superman


  • Attending Opening Day for the Baltimore Orioles!!!! Thanks to my awesome hubby, I can cross this item off my bucket list this year! I am so excited! I have a new passion for baseball. If you have never attended a game I strongly encourage you to go! Even if you are not a baseball or sports fan, there is a charm to baseball. The lights, the smells, the sounds, the food! It’s glorious!
  • Brit Floyd concert
  • Celebrating the end of what I already know will be a successful VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) season!

  • Hopefully getting to see Brandon, he turns 35 this year too!


  • Celebrating Neil’s birthday. Not a big one, but I’m hoping to take him to Fogo de Chao in Baltimore


  • As of right now, I don’t have anything planned for September. I am open to suggestions, or maybe planning an event with someone!

  • Hopefully attending an awesome Halloween party, or at least doing fun Halloween activities!
