The blog about the life of Doan

Now that 2009 is here I want to take some time to reflect on 2008. I always knew 2008 was going to be a good year. I remember looking forward to it because it was 08 and 8 is just a good fucking number. It was only a year ago Ray and I were living the good o life in the rainbow state, Honolulu Hawaii.

It was almost a year ago that I started my first post on this blog, January 9th 2008. Since then I’ve written 121 post. I don’t really know who’s all reading it, but it sure has made my hand written journaling take back seat.

I cut my hair super short for the first time ever. It was kinda cute wasn’t it?

Ray got a new iPhone.

Ray and I ran in The Annual Great Aloha Run, just a little over 8 miles, and we all know eight is a good number to start with.

We voted for our first time for the Democratic Party. But just for the record, once Hillary was out of the election Ray and I voted again for our first time for President for Obama of course.

Ray bought me my first brand new computer. Mac 4 life baby!

MyBabyOurBaby Launched.

We finally found the dock where Lost, our favorite television series, was filmed at. We searched the island for it forever.

We went camping at Melekahana, our first time camping in Hawaii and Ray’s first time ever. He’s not a fan.

Rocked out at the Kokua Festival, a festival Jack Johnson puts on every year in Hawaii., my blog had become a major hit and one of Hawaii’s most popular food blog websites.

I called some lady a cunt on my last day of work, because she was.

We got to swim with dolphins.

We moved back to the main land, California first.

Ray got to meet some of my extended family.

Tried wake boarding for the first time.

Got to ride dirk bikes again.

Where we met the Semmlers, Shane’s older brother and his family and now mine.

Kidnapped Kuya Ben’s dogs.

Found the Agave Homes and fell in love.

Ray introduced me to Marcos. He works for NASA.

Went to our first roller derby.

Spent Bachelorette week in Florida with my best bud Jack Mother Fucking Dogg with a double G.

Got married, 080808.

Got my first tattoo with my old crew from V-Town.

Traveled to New York, but just for a couple of months.

I stopped eating meat.

Met Guav Mom and the Roses and I have to tell you I’m a fan. Hope we get to see them again soon.

I got to freelanced at Jimmy Z’s, thanks to Bea.

We got to be extras in Friday Night Lights.

I almost died from pneumonia.

I met the Semmler’s, the rest of Shane’s family, and now mine as well and went to my first professional basketball game. Go Mavericks!

As you can see I love recording my life and 2008 was a year worth recording. There was a lot of cherry popping going on and I got to meet a lot of people that will be in my life for the long haul. We also moved around a lot, Hawaii, California, Austin, New York, Dallas. Things are just never boring with us. I’m looking forward to a healthy, happy and prosperous year for 2009. I know great things are to come.

So I’m talking to Jackie on the phone and she suggest that I head east to Florida for a pre-wedding/bachelorette event. All my sisters and friends are broke asses and already had their tickets and date locked in for the wedding so a bachelorette party didn’t even cross my mind, that is until I talked to Jackie. Florida, for a week and a half, four days before the wedding? I got to be nuts. Why, yes I am. It didn’t take much to convince me or Ray for that matter. Ray booked the ticket and next thing I know I’m in Florida with my best bud, Jack Mother Fucking Dogg, with a double G. I was hoping Bea would be able to make it but she was in New York sealing the deal on her new home. Anyhow, if you know Jackie, then you’ll know she’s all any party needs.

The first weekend I got there I met Jack’s friend Autumn. She’s a super cool chick and I have to admit I’m a bit jealous of her for getting to live so close to Jackie , but I guess Jackie’s got to spend her time with someone else besides Dirk so I’m glad she’s in good hands.

Of course Jackie made her jungle juice.  Watch out, it’s a lot stronger than it taste.

And before you know it you’ll be giving hula classes in the ocean . . .

And doing a music video on the boat.

This is Jackie’s dog.  I forgot his name but he adopted me as his master, which is fine with me because I like having the role as a master.  He followed me around everywhere I went, slept with me in the bed and growled like a little demon straight from hell.

During the rest of the week we did a lot of shopping and wedding planning stuff.  I found my vail at David’s Bridal.  It was a lot more than what I wanted to pay for but it just felt like the one and considering that Bea bought my wedding dress for me, I figured I could splurge on this.

We went to Jackie’s favorite sushi bar and had a shit ton of sushi.  Even the guys next to us were like, “I can’t believe you girls ate all that sushi.”  And Jackie was like, “uh, she’s getting married next week.”

Blow jobs are amazing.

I will not to be a bride-zilla.

“Uhh, can you call me back?  My hands are full at the moment.”

Dress #1 . . .

Dress #2 . . .

Or dress #3?  Turns out it was dress #3, had to be the most expensive one, complements of Dirk.  Thanks Dirk.

I even got my ears pierced.  Sorry Ray and Bea.  I know you guys would never encourage me to get my ears pierced at Claire’s but I just don’t give a shit.  You could stick my ear with a safety pin for all I care.  Oh, and no Autumn is not cold.

The following weekend we took our happy asses out on the boat once again.  Doesn’t Jackie look pretty?

Jackie decided to be a paparazzi today and took a shit ton of modeling photos of me.

Oh and Dirk brought his new Wachiova friends.  Wachiova for life!

Jackie made more jungle juice.

And Jackie took more modeling photos.  I could get use to this.

Jackie your my best bud and I love you.
