The Top 14 of 2014!

I can NOT believe that 2014 is almost over! This year was so great and full of so many blessings! I'm linking up with Kristin, Traci, and Hadar for their fun linky party, 14 in 14. So here are 14 of my favorite memories of 2014!

In February, we went down to Folkston, Georgia to surprise the Mister's Grandmommy for her 85th birthday! It was the first time meeting my Mister's cousins and we just had a blast that weekend! We spent most of the weekend playing Shanghai Rummy until the middle of the night and just relaxing with each other! We are hoping to do it again this year!
 I just love these people!
The Mister and I got to go the UNC vs. Duke game this year and for those of you that live in North Carolina,  you know that this is probably the biggest sports event in the state! The Mister loves UNC and seeing how excited he was to be at the game, made it SO worth it!

BONUS! UNC won so I had a very happy husband! Go Heels!
So this year, we had a TON of snow days. In March, we had a big ice storm and knocked out a ton of electricity and damaged a lot of the school buildings. So we had several snow days while the damage was repaired. One of the snow days, the weather was gorgeous and so me and a few of my FAVE girlfriends went to a vineyard nearby and had the BEST SNOWDAY EVER!
We had so much fun that we went for my birthday too! I am so thankful for these ladies and their friendship!
My college besties and I got together for the first time in forevs this year and it was so wonderful! We now live in Alabama, Georgia, and North Carolina so the fact that we got all of our schedules to line up is amazing!
Chalkboard Charm went live this summer! Megan Farve designed my blog for me and I am still so in love! I haven't been the most faithful blogger but I am loving this journey! I have met so many blogging friends and I am so excited to see where Chalkboard Charm goes in 2015!
I became an Aunt this year and it is totally the greatest! My nephew Jude lives in Portland so I don't get to see him too often but he is by far the cutest thing on the planet!
Be still my heart! My Mother-in-law made this smocked outfit for my husband when he was a baby and Jude got to try it out when he visited in September!

Most of my family lives in Georgia or Texas but I am so blessed to have my cousin and his family living in Jacksonville, NC. I have gotten to see them several times this year and they are just my fave! Tanner is by far the most hilarious kid out there and Tatum is so precious!

Two of my bridesmaids got married this year and they both had amazing weddings and of course I loved getting to see them marry the loves of their lives!

The Mister and I went to Charleston with my in-laws during the summer and I just fell in love! In my dream life, I will live there and eat all the food, all the time.

Our trip to Greenville, SC was one of my favorite trips this year too. We only spent one night there but it is such an amazing little city. I love to visit every chance I get!

We celebrated our 1 year anniversary this year! Blessed to be with this guy!
The Niharts took a beach trip to Emerald Isle this year and we had a blast! It was my last hoorah before school started so the Mister helped me prepare. Also any trip to the beach is an all round good idea!

We bought a house this year which has been amazing! We've painted, we've got new carpet, and a new bedroom suite! Love our little house and cannot wait to make more memories in this home!
Sappy for sure, but any memory I get to have with my Mister is my favorite. He is by far my favorite  and my best friend!

Wow, you made it through the incredibly long post!
Cheers to the memories that will be made in 2015!
