The Quiz of the Year

quiz-of-the-yearI’ve been tagged by two awesome mommy bloggers, Some Kind of Beautiful Chaos and Mummy 123, to answer some end of the year questions. :) If you haven’t visited their blogs before, you should!

So, here we go…

What was your highlight of 2016?

Our fourth child, Elizabeth Marie, was born. She has been such a blessing and wonderful addition to our family. There have been many other highlights to the year, though! I did an alphabetical year in review, if you want to see what those highlights were. ^_^

Name one thing you are likely to remember about 2016 if asked in five years time?

My sweet little girl’s birth. My first c-section!

Sum up 2016 in one word.

No doubt about it, it’s gotta be BABY. From being pregnant for six months to the birth and watching her grow for the next six months – baby, baby!

Name one pearl of wisdom from 2016 that you will carry through 2017.

Things don’t always go how we expect (needing a c-section after three natural births came as quite a shock!) but everything’s gonna be alright. So relax.

My sixteen year old took this photo of me and her two week old sister. I was falling asleep holding her, which is very unlike me. My body had been through so much!

Do you have any new year resolutions?

Sort of. I’ve made a list of things I want to do over and over again in 2017. I’m going to be dating them and giving a brief commentary on each as I do them.

How did you ring in the new year?

I was in bed by 11pm! I know better than to stay up too late when my five year old certainly isn’t going to let me sleep in the next day!

What would you most like to do in 2017?

Everything on my list mentioned earlier! Oh, and maybe go on a trip. It’d be nice to drive somewhere, take a little road trip. ^_^

What are your main goals for 2017?

Be kinder to myself and stop stressing about getting every little thing done.

I’m tagging the following bloggers:

Camie’s Cozy Corner

Invisible-No-More

Confessions of a Struggling Mom

Lowcountry Hippie

Kathy Knull

Plan B Chronicles

Frugal Health for Life

Happy New Year, guys!

  1. I’m going to check out the two blogs you mentioned and also the ones you nominated that I don’t already follow. Your list is great and I’m stealing some of your ideas. And if you need a place to stop in when you do your road trip keep Michigan in mind! I’m always home!

    1. That would be amazing!! We actually drove to Michigan in 2004 to see my grandparents and I would love to go back. I’m not sure little baby Elizabeth would be up for it yet but someday, for sure! ^_^

  2. Oh boy, as I talked about in my “I thought I was waving” Post, this has been my worst year, ever. So, I am going to try to answer these questions as positive as possible, what a challenge!

    1. :( I started to read that post at the time you wrote it and something called me away from the computer (probably one of my twenty – I mean four – kids) so I saved it in my favorites bar and I’ve yet to get back to it! I’m sorry. ((hugs)) Off to read it now!
