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.

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

We got to swim with dolphins.

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.

I miss my family.

Alright just so ya’ll know, I’m not in New York anymore. Ray and I left just in time to fly to California for Thanksgiving. I’ve just been so busy that blogging had to take back seat. Anyhow, here’s a quick recap of my crazy life in New York from where I left off.

A lot of random events took place when we got back from Syracuse. Luke, from Poland came to visit for about a week. Cloe dropped in from Brooklyn one night and we all had game night.

Jenga, Jenga, Jenga . . .

Chinese checkers is boring.

I got to work at Jimmy Z’s as a free lancer.

I got this fortune on my first day of work. Crazy.

Kola was fucking adorable in his superman costume.

Cloe was a sickle cell, I was a slutty rag doll and Bea was a naughty nurse for Halloween.

The boys were stealth ninjas.

With some of Bea’s friends from work.

It was a fun Halloween.

Ray and I went to Wall Street.

I got to touch the balls of a bull and absolutely loved every second of it.

The next day Ray and I went to Bryant Park. They put up an ice skating ring there.
