Open up your plans and damn you're free

Sometimes, I'm kind of amazed at the things that make me happy and bring me joy, but you'll have to ask me more about.

So, occasionally I get down on myself for allowing myself to be a college graduate who waits tables as a living, but all in all, the lifestyle has some perks. Here's a list of my best 2008 moments to help remind myself.

-Disneyland! (Obviously this is first. My first trip to the happiest place on earth)
-California Adventure
-ESPN zone (my new favorite restaurant... of course only during Bball season)
-UNC Tarheels rocking season 07-08 and going to the final four
-UNC Tarheels having the potential for an even better season thus far in 2008-2009
-Climbing to the top of Mt. Timp
-Just jo and I in the apartment for the first couple months
-Midnight Bonfires on some mountain up provo canyon
-San Francisco
-Reno Rodeo (my first and probably last rodeo ;)
-Getting lost and driving around all of Lake Tahoe
-Chicago with my sisters
-Bongo Room in Chicago (best breakfast I've had in the U.S.)
-Seeing Shamu
-Four Wheeling all over the mountains in Idaho
-One song dance parties
-hot tub rendevous
-snowshoeing in cottonwood canyon
-riding a tandem bike
-amazing friends at work, and when they leave finding new friends that fit too
-buckle jeans with jo
-a birthday without finals
-mac grill dinner parties (that would be the one's i threw, not other people's parties coming in to work)
-rock climbing adventures
-Rachel, Jo and I's grey's anatomy marathon on 2008! It was absurd and ridiculous, but once in a blue moon it's hilarious to spend an entire day watching tv
-Church Bingo
-Slurpees in the hot tub. Slurpees after football games. Slurpees.
-Trying 4 times to gas up Cassie's VW and finally giving her the keys
-Dancing around the apartment to "sexy can I", "forever", "bleeding love", "untouched", "out here grindin'", angry i hate boy music, and various other things
-So You Think You Can Dance and the associated parties
-7 Eleven hot chocolate runs

Ok, well that's all I could think of right now, but if I've forgotten major events be sure and let me know.

I'd say that's a pretty good list for one year.

How about Christmas in NC with the family - that's pretty good too, right? And it's got to be a lot warmer there than in Utah. Double bonus.

I'm excited to see that the one song dance parties made your list of adventures! Hopefully we can resurrect them for 2009.
