Oh wait, that was, like, a week ago. Lets start over.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
I really hope that everybody had a FANTASTIC Christmas. Our was awesome. Five days of sitting on our asses being as lazy as humanly possible. One morning I ate chocolate ice cream for breakfast AND dinner. Not having a child around you have to set an example for is SO TOTALLY AWESOME.
We are having a few friends over but I wanted to take a few seconds to get a blog post out there before 2008 comes to an end forever. I’ve spent some time today in google reader reading all your wonderful 2008 recaps. Some are doing memes and some are listing important things that happened month by month but I kinda hate memes passionately and I’m blond so you can’t reasonably expect me to remember what I did last January. For serious.
So I’ll just leave you by saying that 2008 was one of the most awesome so far. I got married to my soul mate and we bought a house. Two things I’ve been dreaming about for years and years. And two things that totally made me not feel bad at all about not being able to buy Christmas gifts for each other because we are BROKE. Every day at least once I look down at my ring finger and get that little rush of adrenaline knowing that he’s MINE. FOREVER. And every day we come home from a long day at work and an even longer commute home and we pull up to our house and I think, “We are home. This is OUR HOUSE! We have a house!”
Everybody be safe tonight. Surround yourself with good friends and the ones you love the most and make sure you get a kiss at midnight. I’ll raise my glass of champagne to all my online friends. I love you all. Happy New Year!

Aw, sounds like 2008 was a pretty great year for you! I hope that 2009 is even better!! 😀
Happy New Year, hun!
YAY! I like 2008. And chocolate ice cream.
That’s the best part of a new year. It’s a new beginning, starting over, wiping the slate clean.
When the previous year was a good one, it just makes the new one that much better!
Here’s to a great 2009!
Aw! Happy New Year to you too!
Glad to hear your 2008 was wonderful, now lets hope 2009 is even more wonderful 🙂
