Goodbye, 2022!

It’s hard to believe that 2022 is almost over! I have been thinking a lot lately how fast this year went by, and how crazy it is that it’s almost a new year!

I’ve never really been a fan of New Year’s. I hate staying up late, and I often feel sad, because I think of all the things I wanted to do that year and didn’t.

But, what I’ve learned lately is that life just keeps going, and most of life is the mundane, the boring, the day to day things, but when you look back that is sometimes the most memorable.

Here is a recap of my 2022!

January started with my two best friends! I miss them so much!

Then we celebrated Jackson’s birthday! I don’t actually know if this is his birthday since I adopted him, but let’s be real, he doesn’t know either!

February I had the best time skiing at Sun Valley. I had a day off in the middle of the week and decided to ski by myself! I felt so free!

In March, my favorite Bruce’s came to visit and we also went skiing at Sun Valley!! I love my two favorite Bruce’s!

I also turned 25 in March! We took this picture on my birthday!

In April, my mom came to visit and we had a great time shopping and doing all the things we love to do together! I love my Mom so much!

In May, I spent a lot of time outside with Jackson!! We went on lots of walks, read lots of books, and enjoyed the beautiful weather before it got too hot!

In June, I found out I was going to be competing at International Junior Miss as Miss Idaho! This was a goal I set for myself back in 2019! Just goes to show that sometimes your goals take a while to accomplish, but that doesn’t mean you should give up on it!

July was super fun! I started my new role at KMVT as the morning show co-anchor!

My grandfather also passed away in July, I miss you Papa!

In August, Trevor and I went to DisneyLand and California Adventure! I am sharing this picture because I was so proud of myself for not letting my fears stop me and I went on the Incredicoaster!

In September we celebrated Trevor’s birthday with these great friends!! I’m lucky to have so many great friends!

October was exciting! We bought a house! I love this house and it’s finally starting to feel like home!

November was so busy! I flew back to MA for one weekend to surprise my mom for her birthday!! We pulled off the surprise!!

Then, it was time for Internationals in Florida! What an amazing week with new friends and my family!

December was full of Christmas cheer!!

Now, these are just some highlights of the year. Most of my days were just full of work, taking care of my dog, cooking, cleaning, food shopping, and just doing daily things.

There were also a lot of sad days, and a lot of happy days. And right now as I’m ending this year, I am very sick.

But, I choose to look on the positive side and hope that 2023 will be a year full of accomplishing goals, growing, and happiness.

Happy 2023!

Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019

It’s hard to believe that 2018 is almost over, it seems like just yesterday it was the end of 2017, and now here we are, the end of 2018. I don’t like endings or beginnings, maybe that’s why I hate the end of the year. I actually love the middle of things, I love a good Wednesday. I really don’t like to see things end, or start. But, nevertheless, here we are, so I figured I’d give a little recap of my year, mostly for me, I won’t have any hard feelings if you never read this.

In January, I traveled to Mont Tremblant, Canada with my brother and Dad to go skiing. I love skiing on new mountains and this was a great way to kick off the new year!

Also in January, I started my internship at Channel 7 WHDH, as an assignment desk intern.

In March, I went to Gulfport Mississippi to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity with my school’s Alternative Spring Break program! (BEST WEEK EVER) I have so many other blog post’s about this week, it was just that good!

I turned 21 in March, and celebrated with my best friends!

In May, I finished junior year of college and resumed my summer position of working at Target! Hello 6 a.m. shifts!

I went to Philadelphia right before July 4th, which was super fun!

I hiked Mount Washington!

The end of July was sad, when I crowned my successor, and am now forever a has been! Thank you National American Miss!

I went to Martha’s Vineyard in August, and while I was there, I got the call that I would be interning at Channel 4 WBZ for fall semester!

I started senior year of college!!

I had the best long weekend in Wilmington, North Carolina at the One Tree Hill Convention in October!

I finished fall semester of college, and…


That’s right! I will be a script writer at Channel 7 WHDH starting on January 14th! I am excited that my 3 internships and lots of hard work helped me get this position! I know I will learn so much from this job!

Get ready world, I am coming for you this year, I’m graduating, I’m coming into the real world, and be warned, I’m going to make a splash!

I never make new year’s resolutions because no one ever sticks to them. But this year, I have one.

Here’s to happiness and love in 2019, for each and every person in the entire world!


My Brother Bruce

You guys must be getting sick of reading about me right? I mean, it seems like every post on here is all about me. So, for this one, I thought I would write a post all about my very awesome brother, Bruce Jonathan Hadley.


Bruce is 20 months younger than me. Almost to the day, I’m born on March 19th 1997, and he was born on November 22nd, 1998. At first when I was a little girl, I would get mad that we were so close in age, because I wanted to be older, I wanted to know more, and get to do things first. But, I realize it’s actually pretty cool that we are so close in age, because he’s a sophomore in college right now and I’m a senior in college right now, so in a way we are going through some of the same stuff. It’s cool to have someone to talk to and hang out with and relate to things with.


Bruce is so tall. He’s 6 feet 4 inches. I realize that tall isn’t a really a defining trait about a person, but it’s weird sometimes when I think how tall he is, because he’s younger than me, so I just remember all the time I was taller, and now, here we are.


Bruce is so nice, one of the nicest, most understanding people in the world. He is always there to listen, and he will usually turn the situation around to something that makes you laugh. That isn’t to say Bruce isn’t serious, he’s very serious, he is just the type of person who always likes to take the lighter side of things. If I’m having a bad day, he’s definitely the one I want to talk to, he always makes me laugh.


Bruce is going to be very successful. I can see Bruce living in a small little town with a lot of woods, and a lot to do outside, he is always outside. I can see him working every day at some national park, and working on the trails, or working on the park, or maybe being a park ranger. I can see Bruce enjoying everything that nature has to offer, because he always has been like that.


Bruce can do whatever he sets his mind to do, he’s very smart, and very clever in finding out ways to do things, and ways to succeed. I know he will do whatever he wants in life, and be great at it.

If you think I love George, you haven’t seen Bruce love George, it might even be more than me! Maybe!

Baby Bruce and Liz, and yes he still looks at me this way! 

It’s weird not seeing Bruce every day, but I know he is killing it up at the University of Maine, and I can’t wait to see where his life takes him, because it could be anywhere.


I love you Brucey!
