Another Year Bit the Dust

A belated Happy New Year to everyone from moi. I'm hacking up a lung, hence the late post, it's my bodies annual gift to itself: forced relaxation.

Time to get back on track with the blog. I thought I might have a sewing project to share but have yet to attend my free one hour lesson which means I don't have a clue of how to use the machine. I think I might play with her tomorrow - haven't named her yet because I don't think "Oh Shit" is appropriate, her name will come in time. Don't fret, you'll be the first to find out what she has been christened with.

Besides being forced to curl up on the couch for 5 days straight I did manage to pull myself together for New Years Eve and had a fun filled evening with our crew I nearly lost my voice which everyone thought was quite funny, no need to hunt for her batteries if she's worn them out herself and this is where my New Years resolution comes into play: I hope to spend more time thinking and listening rather than talking. I think the universe is telling me to shut up so I figure I may as well give it a shot. Hardy har har, pick yourself up off the ground and wipe the giggle spittle from your chin, I'm capable of being quiet dammit and I'll prove it.

I had planned to do this earlier, but didn't, so here goes somethin'.

Fabulousness from 2007

Dream wedding in Mexico, married the best man ever and partied with a fantastic group of people we love followed by two phenomenal weeks in Jamaica for our honeymoon - damn that was great.
Followed up by an at-home-reception that was out of this world - I fell on my ass twice, or was it three times, in my wedding dress and laughed hard each time. I'm a class act, that's for sure.
Met and partied with a pile of my new Irish family and can't wait for round two, hopefully in Ireland this time.
Trip to Vancouver for Cara & Herwig's wedding reception which meant being with three of my best girlfriends twice in less than 6 months for more than one day (this NEVER happens)
Started blogging - cheese? yes I know but whatever, it's good for my soul.
Less negative self-talk - you have no idea how good it feels to be able to say that. I'm not a put myself down in conversation sort of gal but I'm not so good in my head sometimes, getting better.
Pilates!! Love it
Week in Wasaga beach before the main strip was burnt to the ground - so happy we went and saw it one last time and had such a fabulous time
Finished the bulk of my degree this year - one course to go!! It was a hard year but so worth it.
Became even closer to my girl Tanya - so thankful to have her in my world.
Beth & James had a baby boy named Jordan James - can't wait to meet the little man!

Future Fabulousness for 2008
Trip to ?? two weeks from now! Not sure where we're going but it's going to be hot and hot is always good.
Cara's having a baby very soon! I'll meet him/her this year. YAY!
Graduating from University this spring
Starting teachers college - no clue where but I'm going
Another trip to Vancouver this summer to see my girls & visit Whistler
Ireland? maybe...
Become a fabulous sewing diva
Spend more time than ever with everyone I love!
Learn to use our camera WELL.
Become more organized - one can dream.

That's all for now ladies and gents. Please feel free to comment, tell me your deepest, darkest secrets please and thank you.

Sounds like you had a great year and I'm sure 2008 will be great as well. :) Don't give up on the machine, go take a class and then you should be able to figure it out. It does have to be threaded EXACTLY right or it doesn't sew right, so just keep that in mind.

Thanks mom for helping make my year so FANTASTIC! You're the best!

Stacy, my sewing lesson is on Thursday! Yay! I can't wait to figure out how to work this thing, I've held off to avoid frustrating myself. Thanks for the tip, all of my stitches looked the same when I tried out my machine so I'm guessing I haven't threaded it properly.
