Adventures this month:
  • Made it to year 2 in the house (and added a new chesterfield couch from Wier's as an anniversary gift)
  • Enjoyed a great weekend with my Chisholm family - Prestonwood Baptist spectacular, dinner with cousins, and mini-reunion with sweet Grandma Evelyn
  • Our first trip to the Arlington Christkindl Market (and a German windmill has made it to my wish list)
  • Extra fun at work for the holidays - ugly sweaters, caroling with coworkers, sing-along assembly, painting party, and more. December at elementary school can't be beat!
  • Celebrated Christmas with gumbo at our house Christmas Eve, big family gathering at my Aunt Jenny's, small family in Carrollton, and lasagna night with Matt's mom
  • Plus lots of fun with friends - Snug w/Cheri, Pub with the Sielings and Motts, football at Shandy's, winning trivia at 903 Brewers (free beer!) with Sherman friends, and more.
  • Bonus: Matt won his big fantasy football draft for the 2nd time in 14 years, woo hoo....

Goal Wrap Up

Giving 35 Challenge = 35/35

Donating time or money 35 times before my 35th birthday in September.
Done and awesome!

Hike 35 Miles = 26/35

Kind of fizzed out on this one but still enjoyed 26 miles of new trails.
4 miles - 1/24/15 - Towne Lake Park Trail + Disc Golf Course, McKinney
6 miles - 2/7/15 - Oak Point Nature Preserve Trail, Plano
2 miles - 5/14/15 - Bonnie Wenk Park Trails, McKinney
3 miles - 6/29/15 - Towne Lake Park Trail + Disc Golf Course, McKinney
11 miles of wilderness hiking at Colorado Bend State Park - Spicewood Spring Canyon Trail, Cedar Chopper Loop to Old Gorman Road/Gorman Falls, back via Tinaja Trail

Swim 35 Times = 28/35
28 by Amanda, Matt definitely swam over 35 times when you add in every time he jumped in after mowing the yard. Too bad the spa heater went out or we could have smashed this goal since by mid-September it was already too cold to swim. Lots of May rain and the days we didn't use the pool because of the exterior renovation made it tricky too. Still a fun one!

Adios 2015!
