Our 2014

2014 was another good year for our little Tappana family. It had its ups and downs, but really, what doesn't?


Nothing too exciting happend in January. I started my last semester at USU for the time being. I didn't know it was my last semester at the time. Somebody can't make up her mind about her big life plans!


February was a fantastic month. Sam turned 28 and Madalyn turned 6 months. 
We had a much needed and very fun vacation with my family in St. George. 
Later that month we went on our traditional Valetines date to Joe Morleys and Ice skating.


The biggest thing that happened in March was we put the girls in the same room. It worked wonders for a while, until it didn't. 


April was the month that after 14 years in the choir, my mom had to retire. It was pretty bittersweet!
I also ran my first 5k in a while and finished in 33:33, a time I was really proud of!!


In May, Sam and I celebrated our big 5 year anniversary! We had our first night away with just each other since having kids. We went to Midway and stayed at the Zermatt Resort, spent time in the Crater, eating dinner, and enjoying just us. We also had fun going to a Bees Game later that week!


I started training for a half marathon! 
Tim and Ashely came home for the summer.
We went to Taylorsville Dayzz of course.
Brigham and Kari came at the very for a vacation!!


I turned 28
I got my first Iphone. And I love it.
We had a fun staycation with the Tappana clan. We went to the temple, the mountains, parks, and had a fun 4th!
Abbigale Mae turned 3, and had a fun, small party to celebrate
We ate at Ruths Diner for the first time with Tim and Ashley on the 24th, we went bowling that afternoon, and had a fun BBQ and movie outside with my family that night.


The most important thing that happened in August was Madalyn Marie turned 1. We had family over to celebrate, and she hated her cupcake.
I also started work at Zions Bank on her birthday. 


I hit my 10 mile mark in running
Abby started preschool and had her first field trip to Wheeler Farm
We spent Labor Day freezing our bums off at Mirror Lake


October was a big month!! I ran my first ever half! I made a goal, worked out a plan, and finished! One of the highlights of 2014 for sure.
I also made the jump and became a Beachbody coach, and it seriously has helped me so much!


November wasn't a big month. I continued on with my fitness journey by starting Turbo Fire.
I had almost a whole week off of work and it has made it hard to keep going every. single. day. since.
We enjoyed Thanksgiving with my family.


We had our yearly progressive dinner
We thought we wouldn't be able to attend the Tabernacle Choir Christmas concert, but lucky for us my mom got some tickets!
My girls sat on Santas lap. Abby was ok about it. Madalyn wanted off.
We had a fun Chrismas with family, food, and fun.

I hope everyone had a wonderful 2014, and I hope you all have an even better 2015. For us, I think 2015 is going to be awesome. I just have a good feeling about it.
