Reflections On 2016

Hey everyone!

What a year 2016 was for us.  At Christmas 2015 we had no idea that we would be celebrating the following year with a new baby.  I fell pregnant in November but didn’t actually know until January so we got through Christmas having no idea we were growing a tiny human.

2016 was a year of many firsts:

  • First time in America
  • First time going abroad with a friend
  • First time using face primer – I know!!
  • First blood test
  • First stay in hospital
  • First operation
  • First baby
  • First time actually losing weight with Slimming World and sticking to the plan for more than a couple of weeks
  • First time as an adult having my hair cut short


In March, I went to Utah as a reward when I worked for the cosmetics company Younique.  I went with my best friend, Christine, who had also achieved the same. Whilst we were there we decided to make a little trip to Vegas before coming home 😉

Here’s some pics of our adventures:



And here’s some of my favourite pictures of Poppy from the last 4 months 🙂



Can’t wait for all the adventures of 2017!

What was your favourite part of 2016?
