real life in review meme

I know we’re a week into 2008 but I have to do another one of these 2007 year in review memes. Real life, this time. 😀 Stolen from Christie

Where did you begin 2007?
Rob and I were at my friend Jason’s place. We had pizza (Zachary’s! YUM!) for dinner and we almost fell asleep waiting for midnight. 😛
What was your status by Valentine’s Day?
Was still single but attached. (Is that even what this question is asking?)
Were you in school (anytime this year)?
No, just working. ARGH. Haven’t been in school since 2001.
Did you have to go to the hospital?
Nope.
Did you have any encounters with the police?
Nope. I’m a good girl.
Where did you go on vacation?
Rob and I took a weekend trip this year to Monterey/Carmel in May for our anniversary. And that’s where we got engaged! 😀 I also went to Palm Springs with my best friends for our 2nd annual Girls Weekend. Good times.
What did you purchase that was over $500?
My wedding dress. And various other wedding “stuff” like our venue and the deposits for our vendors.
Did you know anybody who got married?
Yup, Rob’s friend Daniel got hitched in April.
Did you know anybody who passed away?
No.
Did you move anywhere?
No.
What sporting events did you attend?
None. I’m not really a sports person. I like to watch games from the comfort of my couch.
What concerts/shows did you go to?
Justin Timberlake in January!!!
Where do you live now?
Northern CA
Describe your birthday:
Very low-key. Went to work, left early and then went to dinner with Rob. Then my cousin arrived that night for a weekend visit and we had a great time hanging out.
What’s the one thing you thought you would never do but did in 2007?
Get a dog. Well, it’s not that I thought I would NEVER get one… I just didn’t think Rob and I would get one so soon.
What has been your favorite moment(s)?
Getting engaged. Definitely. I seriously felt like I was floating; I was ridiculously happy.
What’s something you learned about yourself?
I realized that I have a tendency to sit back and let things happen to me… and if I want things to end up a certain way, I need to be the one to initiate the resolution/change.
Any new additions to your family?
Just our little furry monster Diesel.
What was your best month?
May. Rob and I got engaged on the 12th and we brought Diesel home on the 26th. It was a good month.
What music will you remember 2007 by?
I really only listen to pop music so I’ll probably remember Rihanna’s Umbrella and Fergie’s Big Girls Don’t Cry. Also anything from Timbaland’s Shock Value album.
Favorite Night out?
The night I stood in line to get the last Harry Potter book. SQUEE. What can I say? I’m a total geek at heart.
Any regrets?
I’m sure I have some but none come to mind right now.
What do you want to change in 2008?
I want to be happy instead of wishing I could be happy. I want to get in shape and lose a little weight. And I want to start preparing for the future (ie. save money for a home, etc).
How would you rate this year?
One of the best.
What would you change about 2007?
Honestly? Nothing.
What did you like most about 2007?
Wedding planning. It’s actually so much more fun that I ever would have thought.
Other than home, where did you spend most of your time?
Work. BOO.
Change your hairstyle?
My hair’s still pretty short (it hits a few inches above my shoulders) but I started to grow out my bangs. I got sick of them. I’m still a little self-conscious about my forehead, though. Cause it’s huge.
Have any car accidents?
No. I barely drove in 2007.
Buy a new car?
Heh.
Get a new job?
No.
How old did you turn this year?
28
Do you have any New Year’s resolutions?
I kinda touched on this in a previous question, but here they are officially:
1. Be happy.
2. Get into shape and lose weight.
3. Save money
These are my resolutions every year. :/ This time, I mean it! (Though I do have to say that I am much, much better at #3 due to the wedding planning).
Do anything embarrassing?
I’m sure I did. But I erased it from my memory.
Buy anything new from eBay?
Yup! I like to buy stamp pads from eBay. They’re far cheaper than buying them at Michaels or the scrapbook stores.
What was your favorite purchase?
Wedding dress! 😛 I’m such a girl.
Get married or divorced?
No.
Get arrested?
No.
Be honest – did you watch American Idol?
I watched the auditions but I didn’t finish the season — I wasn’t engaged by any of the contestants. I’ll probably watch it this year since most of my shows are done for the year.
Did you get sick this year?
Maybe 2 or 3 times… nothing major. I did call-in sick one day that I wasn’t sick. Hee.
Start a new hobby?
Scrapbooking!
Been snowboarding?
No.
Are you happy to see 2007 go?
Only in the sense that I like the idea of a new year, fresh start…
Drank Starbucks in 2007?
OF COURSE. I have a mocha or a latte at least once a week. EEK. It’s scary to think of how much I’ve spent there.
Been naughty or nice?
Nice! See my halo?
What are you wishing for in 2008?
Happiness.
😀
