I actually accomplished a lot

I'm currently enjoying our New Year's Day tradition of Egg Dish and horror movies with good friends. Since I don't love horror movies, I thought I'd get caught up on the past year at the same time. To say 2008 was busy would be a ridiculous understatement. I actually accomplished a lot of the stuff I wanted to do, including:
  • Run a mile.
  • Visit the San Diego Zoo
  • Take the dogs for walks in Runyon Canyon and Fryman Canyon
  • Plant a tree in our front yard
  • Present a full-on summer season of Tiki Theater
  • Grow my hair past my shoulders
Not too many bullets off my ambitious list, but let's see what else I did, and what else happened, shall we?

Threw our most kick-ass Oscar party yet in February.

Saw the dogs get cuter, and eat the eyes out of a bee.

Rocked St. Pat's with my favorite Scorpios.

Hiked up Runyon Canyon with Amy & Chip on Easter Morning.

Went to Medieval Times for the first time.

Bought my first bike in many, many years.

Went on a fabulous Hawaiian vacation; swam laps in this body of water.

Watched the dogs get even cuter.

Celebrated the one-year anniversary of Click.

Became a triathlete.

Enjoyed Minnesota in summertime, visiting Amy & Chip over 4th of July weekend.

Celebrated nephew Rusty's 1st birthday in Santa Barbara with the entire McLean clan.

Watched my little family get even cuter.

Met Mia Michaels.

Went to San Diego Comic Con for the first time, followed by a trip to the San Diego Zoo. (Got Nerd Flu.)

Celebrated Kristin & Mark's marriage with good friends outside of Boston.

Reunited with my UNC Crew in Greeley Colorado; danced and danced.

Ate a delicious peach from Mom's tree in her backyard. (Also went to my first water aerobics class.)

Threw a Valley Girl Slumber Party Bridal Shower for Amanda, and had attendees do 80's makeovers for fabulous prizes.

Bridesmaided for my dear friends, once in September, once in October. Thanked God my friends have lovely taste in bridesmaid dresses.

Worked my ass off, rubbed shoulders with celebs, and pissed off Victor Garber at the Runway for Life event.

Threw the Halloween Cocktail Party I've wanted to throw, oh, forever; discovered black vodka.

Met one of the funniest women alive, Amy Sedaris.

Voted in one of the most important elections of our lifetime; wept with joy on Election Night.

Gardened! I finally populated the little garden in front of our house with herbs and flowers, I planted three rose bushes, and we had a tree planted in the front yard.

Learned how to weave a lattice pie crust and baked the world's most beautiful (and delicious) apple pie for Thanksgiving.

Bought the prettiest white winter coat just before our trip to Seattle, where we got to see some fabulous friends, and got a truckload of great business accomplished. (Also, note how long hair has gotten!)

Took formal family portraits with the McLeans at Sears.

Sent out beautiful Click holiday cards to our clients and press.

Enjoyed a lovely, low-key Christmas in Santa Barbara.

And, finally, watched the dogs get even cuter.

Two unforgivable things about this post:

1. You pissed off SpyDaddy.
2. You left out the details of how you pissed off SpyDaddy.

Dude, your first task of 2009 is to rectify item 2.

Happy new year!
