(Yes, this is late. Better late than never I suppose.) This year we ended up seeing so many of the best picture nominations, that we thought we should throw a party. We only invited true movie buffs. Everyone chose a best picture nominee to gear their food after. We had Academy Awards bingo, and turned in ballots on who we thought would win. There was a lot of food. A lot of prizes, and a lot of laughter. Especially when my DVR cut off right before they announced the best picture winner. All in all it was a lot of fun. Thanks to everyone who came, and we missed those who couldn't be there.

We're so lucky that Tom and Celeste let us come and hang out and stay with them in beautiful Ashton. This time there were snow dog races going on and a cute little street fair on main street in Ashton.
We had a blast hanging out and enjoying the snow. We went sledding, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. Did I mention there was snow? Like a ton of snow. Like just in the weekend we were there our cars disappeared under the snow. It was gorgeous, and made for such a fun holiday.

These three little girls belong to some of my dearest friends. They are close in age, and I feel like they all used to be tiny little babies such a short time ago. At my party they were all running around together and I couldn't believe how much they had grown and turned into big girls.
28 was a hard one for me this year. Not because of anything specific, but I think because 28 was the age. The age where I thought I would have my own little one running around. Or if not that, I thought I would be running around in my size six jeans. In shape and running marathons. Or perhaps I thought I would have my very own house.
All these things sprang into my head when I realized I hit an age that I had put expectations on myself. Now let me just say, that I am extremely blessed to be where I am right now, and it's not that I don't love my life how it is, but I think I had to adjust my thinking this year.
And as much as I would love to have my own little peanut, bean, or bug right now, it's just not the right time. I have accepted that. We're working towards it, and I think we're really close, but for right now I am happy to live with my best friend who makes me laugh every single day. Especially tonight when he acted out a 2 minute version of Black Swan that had me laughing until I was crying.
Yep, I think it's safe to say that even though I didn't know I would be here at 28, I am content. And I'm determined to make this my year.
