2016 is slowly ticking down and as always, I’m reflecting on the year. The ups and the downs, because let’s face it, there were a lot of downs but personally, there were a lot of ups too. My family was blessed with a new addition in my nephew Rocky. My niece Chloe married her Prince Charming. Chance and RJ returned from their missions safe and with honor. The girls are all doing well in basketball. I turned 36 and this blog turned 1. I’m blessed and a huge part of the reason I’m blessed are these guys pictured to the left.
To close out the year, my niece Chach has put together a list of activities that she wants to do as a family before she leaves on her mission next month. First up, we went to see the temple Christmas lights and we watched some videos in the Visitors Center where Chach bore her testimony and made everyone cry. This week, we’re going to our town’s Candy Cane Lane where we’ll see more Christmas lights, drink more hot chocolate and take more pictures with Santa and just be together. The kids will love it and I’m sure us adults will too. It’s always a good time with Team Wilson Gang.
I’m looking forward to all of the family activities we’ll do to wrap up the year but here’s a list of things that I’m looking forward to in the new year.
Getting skinny from all the dieting and exercising I plan on doing in the new year. Ha! Don’t laugh, I’m for reals going to do it. Or, I’m like, 80% sure this is the year I actually do it. Haha.
Chach leaving for her Mission in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The people of Brazil are lucky to be getting one of my favorite kids. There is no one more genuine and likable than Chaylene and she’ll be leaving us to go and do work. I’m proud of that kid!
Brenna graduates from High School. I’m low key freaking out about June 2017 hitting me because my daughter will be graduating from high school and starting the rest of her life as an adult. She’s the same age I was when I had her. Someone hold me. But even with how much freaking out I’m doing, I’m looking forward to celebrating her hard work.
Becoming a Great Aunt. Chloe is pregnant and will be having her baby in March (I think) so I’m ready for a new baby to love and cherish!
There are quite a few movies coming out that I’m looking forward to but here’s a short glimpse into that madness…
My boo thangs
Jax Teller Charlie Hunnam and Dylan O’Brien (I know, Cougar Alert! Ha!) have movies coming out next year that I’m super excited about. My favorite Dylan O’Brien character will probably always be Stiles Stilinksy on Teen Wolf but after seeing the pictures coming out of him in American Assassins, I can really get behind supporting him and going to see this movie. You know, because the story looks so interesting. 😉
But I’m also looking forward to all of the other movies listed. Justice League, Logan, Table 19 looks really funny, the trailer for Gifted made me cry so I’m on board for that one and Beauty and the Beast, anybody??? Of COURSE I’m going to see that one.
And though I haven’t read the book for Before I Fall, that’s not going to stop me from seeing the movie. Looks good.
Taken (NBC): This one looks really good and holy cow, I just noticed that it’s Rolo from Vikings as the main character. Lovin’ it! I’m so going to watch this.
Chicago Justice (NBC): I adore the other Chicago shows so I’m really looking forward to watching this one. Especially because Antonio is now a part of this show. I can’t wait!
Sense8 (Netflix): I feel like we’ve been waiting such a long time for this show and umm..I’m right, we HAVE waited a long time for this damn second season but we only a little while longer to wait (fingers crossed) so woo freaking hoo!
Riverdale (The CW): With Vampire Diaries ending after this season, I’m going to need a new show to take its place. This one looks like it because…LUKE PERRY! Team Dylan McKay is back in the house! Yay!
Famous in Love (Freeform): This is a book and it’s being turned into a TV Show. This book nerd is definitely watching it. I hope it’s better than Pretty Little Liars and Shadowhunters. I wasn’t a fan of either of those shows.
Alright, there you have it…some of the stuff that I’m looking forward to in 2017. This post is already long enough so I’ll probably do a list of Books that I’m looking forward to on my book blog, Book Binge. I’ll let you guys know when that goes live.
What movies and TV shows are you looking forward to next year? Anything good that I’m missing?? Let me know!
