Mom Life Mondays: Blog Link Up #17 (Happy New Year!)

Happy, Happy New Year!

I know everyone feels it, but I still can’t believe that it’s 2017! Last year flew by in the blink of an eye. To be honest, we had a few happenings over the last few weeks of the year that weren’t so great. From a car accident (everyone is okay) to a fall that led to leg surgery (all went well), we had some minor bumps that made it easier to say good-bye to 2016. We’re all looking forward to the fresh start! And I’m hoping to make the resolve and inspiration of the start of 2017 last as long as possible.

How was your NYE celebration? D and I decided to chill at home, ate a delicious meal of panko fried perch and homemade fries! We had our champs (sparkling cider for me!) and we stayed up to watch the countdown! Our boys go to bed around 8pm, so it was just us, laughing about events of the past year and sharing our joy and excitement for this year. (In particular, we can’t wait to meet our newest bundle of joy!)

Tell me about your NYE celebration! Any NY resolutions? Don’t forget to link up! It’s our 17th one! How fitting for the start of this new year! I can’t wait to dive into the first posts of 2017!

What is a blog link-up you ask? It’s a regular post that I’ll have here on Mondays (not sure if it’ll be weekly or monthly or bimonthly yet), but a place you can come to find the latest and greatest blog posts about all things motherhood.

If you’re a blogger, please feel free to drop a link to a current motherhood-related blog post. I just ask that you follow the instructions detailed below!

We also have a chat loop on Instagram! Please follow JeeYoung (me!) @simplyeveryblog & Shannon @memoirsofaworkingmom for our weekly #IGMOMSCHAT (usually on Thursday nights @ 9pm EST!)

    Happy New Year Jee Young! Glad to hear everyone is ok after eventful times 🙂 I find these things are always scarier when I’m preggers.
