Another Year Has Passed

Tomorrow is my birthday and like everyone else does (please tell me this is normal), I am sitting on the eve of the 27th anniversary of my birth wondering what I’ve accomplished with the past year of my life. 

While this one wasn’t quite as big as 25, I still think I had a pretty good year being 26.  I passed my Enrolled Agent exams, thereby getting me a promotion at work.  I even have an assistant now and my boss writes things like “Fantastic! Great month!” on my paychecks.  (That was today so it’s fresh in my mind.  I’m not one of those people that remembers everything.) I feel like I’ve stepped up into my new positon quite well.

We also moved into a house.  Still renting but at least we have a yard for the dogs and don’t share a wall with anyone.  It’s great. 

I was also lucky enough to be able to have Christmas with both my family in Texas and Jeff’s family here in Colorado.  I had a very blessed Christmas. I’ve been able to get some great exercise with the bike the hubby gave me and oh my gosh, how did I ever live without a mixer?!

My Aggies had an AMAZING football season and even won the Heisman… go Johnny Football!!! National Champs 2014! (That’s how it’s playing out in my head at least.)

Everyone is happy and healthy.

Unfortunately there have been some not so wonderful times too. My husband’s great-grandmother passed away last year and my grandfather just passed away on Sunday. I know it happens when you start to get older but it sucks. I wish they could be around forever.

Overall we have been very fortunate. I started working on our taxes for this year and we are probably not getting a very big refund… because we made too much money. There could be worse things for sure.

I cannot wait to see what 27 brings me… besides s’mores cakes that is currently cooling on the counter. 🙂

Thinking about starting a “things to do before I turn 30” list… any suggestions?? What is/was on yours?
