2015 Top 10 Highlights

9:00 AM

Happy hump day! The last day of 2015 is tomorrow so I figured that it would be fitting to go through my top 10 highlights of 2015! 2015 was a pretty exciting year, so here are my top 10 from this year!

One | Dallas: For my birthday, Matt took my to Dallas so we could eat Freebirds. That was the only reason we went to Dallas. We took a repo {reposition} flight, meaning it wasn't an actual flight with passengers. It was just two pilots and us on a CRJ-900. It felt really weird being the only two people on a plane but it was so cool! Even though we were only in Texas for an afternoon, it was great to see a different state.

Two | Getting a Job: This year, I got my very first job! I got my job in June and I'm so happy and proud of myself! I have met some wonderful people at this job and, even though it can be rough sometimes, the people I get to work with make it very worthwhile!

Three | Barrett: This year I got accepted into Barrett, The Honors College at ASU! This is definitely one thing I'm very proud of, even though thinking about what I have to do is very daunting!

Four | 2Cellos: For our two year anniversary, Matt and I went to see 2Cellos at the Mesa Arts Center. Their concert was amazing! You can check out 2Cellos' YouTube channel here!

Five | One Year of Blogging: In July I hit my one year birthday of this blog! I hosted a giveaway and explained why I wanted to blog in the first place! Thank you all for helping me make it to a year {and beyond!}

Six | My Cousin's Wedding: In March, my cousin got married in Palm Springs and it was such a beautiful ceremony. It was at the Renaissance Esmerelda, a hotel I hadn't stayed at since I was little. {I also hadn't been to Palm Springs in years!} It took me down memory lane and it was so much fun to see my family! Sadly, we had to leave the next day because Matt had to go back to work, but it was fun nonetheless!

Seven | Started YouTube: I started my YouTube channel this year! I was so excited to start it, and right now I do videos once a month {usually}! I'm still trying to get the hang of it and comfortable doing it!

Eight | Joined Her Campus ASU: Her Campus ASU is our school's chapter of Her Campus! I've met some great girls through HCASU!

Nine | Lake Tahoe: In July Matt and I were able to go to Tahoe for a couple of days! It was really nice to be able to see the lake again and just get away from work for a few days! {plus take some pictures!}

Ten | Etsy Shop: Yes, I opened my very own Etsy shop in October! I'm very excited to see where it goes from here! I hope to add more planner printable stickers and some more printables for bloggers and college students! You can check out my shop here!
