Favorites of 2017

I’m still over here thinking about 2017. Before we get too far into 2018, let me share some of my favorite things from last year. Although this comes with a huge asterisk, since most of these are favorites from the last few months, as my memory is a little foggy before then!

Favorite Things of 2017

My favorite thing to do in 2017 was to go on adventures. Any adventure.

Here are some of my favorite things from 2017!

(Favorite) Things I shopped for:

+ My slippers
+ My leather tote (big enough for my laptop and can also be used as a “diaper bag” now that my kids are older and don’t need quite as much)
+ The backpack I use instead of a diaper bag (I bought it a while ago but have used it nonstop this year. Can I just go ahead and say this is one of the top 5 things I own?! I use it every single day.)

(Favorite) Trips we took:

+ Park City, UT
+ Whistler, BC
+ Lake Cushman (in WA)
+ Winthrop & North Cascades (in WA)
+ Wenatchee (in WA)
+ Portland (OR)
+ Camping!! (in general)
** We stayed very local these past 12 months, and I kind of loved it! But I’m ready to go a bit further this year.

(Favorite) Recipes I made:

+ This quinoa enchilada crockpot recipe
+ The Pioneer Woman’s cinnamon rolls
+ Joy The Baker’s peas and goat cheese tortilla

(Favorite) Journals I’ve written in:

+ This weekly planner (I’ve been using it for 2 years and love it!)
+ The goal setting guide from Lara Casey(sold out, but sign up to receive emails!)
+ The ‘Write the Word’ journal, which is how I stay accountable to read and reflect on the Bible daily

(Favorite) Shows I watched via Netflix:

+ Parenthood
+ The Crown

(Favorite) Podcasts I listened to:

+ True Crime Obsessed
+ For the Love with Jen Hatmaker
+ (and 23 other ones…)

(Favorite) Services I signed up for:

Amazon Fresh
Imperfect Produce (use the referral link to get $10 off!)
Evereve
Le Tote (use the referral link to get a free tote!)

(Favorite) Apps I use:

+ Aaptiv (I prefer going to the gym, but when I only have time for a quick jog or yoga/stretching/strength session in my living room, I love this app!)
+ 1SE (I made a video recap of 2017 and am doing the same for 2018!)
+ Tinybeans (I try to take daily pics of the girls to share with friends/family)
+ Marco Polo (Basically a video voicemail… at least that’s how I use it! This is great for grandparents and long distance family/friends!)

I’m doing another post over the weekend or early next week with a list of favorite books I read, since there were quite a few!

Do you have any favorites from 2017?! Per usual, I love your recommendations!

  1. Oh, this was SO FUN to read! My best friend loves TinyBeans! I get an email with her updates every day. 🙂 I’ve heard such good things about Jen Hatmaker’s podcast, so I don’t know why I always forget about it as an option when looking for new podcasts. This is a fun way to do a year-end summary post! I feel like I learned so much about you rather quickly. 🙂

  2. I need to start watching The Crown. Also, I looove The Pioneer Woman’s recipes (and her)! Cleveland has an imperfect produce company, too, and I think we’re too far away to receive it and it makes me SO sad.

    I own all of the Pioneer Woman’s cookbooks, and I made a recipe of hers for the first time last month. I really want to try the cinnamon rolls, but I don’t have 80 close friends in this area, haha.
