It Was the Best of Times...It Was the Worst of Times 2016

It's that time again - let's recap all my favorites {and a few not-so-favorites} of the year! I love looking back at the year and remembering the details. Hopefully you do too!

Best Movie

Bad Moms - I know this wasn't a 'great' movie, but I sure loved it!

Worst Movie

45 Years - this movie was so boring. zzzzzzz

Best Book

The Nightingale
not only did I love this book, but it got me on a WW2 kick of great books!

Worst Book

A Shade of Vampire - I still can't believe I wasted time on this! 

Best New Author

Taylor Jenkins Reid - I read 3 of her books {After I Do, Forever, Interrupted, Maybe in Another Life} and LOVED them all. Can't wait for more from her!

Best TV Show

This Is Us - I mean you aren't human if you don't love this show!

Best Trip

San Diego - it was a very different trip than the one B and I took to NOLA, but you have to love when the whole family is together!
{Recaps HERE and HERE}

Best Album

Trolls - we downloaded this as soon as we left the theater and we all LOVE it!
{Is it bad that I liked this more than Adele's 25?}

Best Experience

Welcoming Paige into our family! Kind of a no brainer, huh?
Birth photos to come soon!

Favorite Family Picture

We took Paige's newborn pics on Friday and I was hoping to have our first picture as a family of 5 to put here, but I don't have them yet. So this will work as Paige is sort of in this picture too. {grin}

I still haven't had a chance to read Paige's birth story but congrats and I love this little recap. I am surprised at Bad Moms because I hated the movie (not all of it, but the husband drama I felt was unnecessary and really killed it for me). I loved nightingale and all the Taylor Jenkins Reid books (which I have you to thank for those!). And I will never read that vampire book haha
