2007 - A year in review meme

My good blogging friend, Dee at onthecurb, posted a great meme about the end of the year, Happy New Year!. As I look forward with much excitement about 2008, I thought I would follow her lead and answer the same questions:

1. Where did you begin 2007? At the same place I ended it, at home. NICE!!!

2. Did you have to go to the hospital? Um...yes...several times for me and for family. But I don't think I was commited, er "admitted" at all?? Don't remember.

3. Did you have any encounters with the police? It wasn't me...you can't prove it. Nope!! No encounters that count. ;)

4. Where did you go on vacation? 2007 I was blessed with multiple trips. We went to Oregon in July. I went to Vegas twice, once for "business". I went on a weekend cruise (Weekend Party Barge) with 30 women who don't drink...go figure. They were awesome ladies! Then...of course...the cous de gras...Mexico for Christmas.

5. What did you purchase that was over $500? Um...please see #3 & #4?

6. Did you know anyone who got married? My cousin...although no one knew about it til afterwards. GO ANG!!!

7. What sporting events did you attend? Football games, a couple pro baseball games, swim meets, a karate demonstration, supercross/motorcross/arenacross...something like that...and I think a soccer game??

8. What concerts/shows did you go to? Blue Man Group (Vegas), Penn & Teller (Vegas), Jersey Boys (on tour), On the cruise I saw the guy who originally sang the "Happy Days" song...don't ask me his name but yes, he's still alive.

9. Where do you live now? Northern Calif.

10. Describe your birthday. My hubby & son had to leave for a boy scout trip so they left my gifts for when I got home from work. New riding gear for my quad. Then I went out with friends. It was a good one!!

11. What's the one thing you thought you would never do, but did in 2007? Please see zipline photos from Back Safe & Sound. Enough said!

12. What's something you learned about yourself? Giving 110% of myself to my job is alright, if it's 110% of a reasonable number. I can still do a good job if I'm not giving 110% of 3,000,000.

13. Any new additions to your family? Regrettably, no.

14. What was your best month? I would have to say December...remember Mexico??

15. What music will you remember 2007 by? I bought my MP3 player in 2007. I will remember 2007 for this wonderful new addition! I use it when I work more than anything because it helps me focus and it tunes out noises around the office. :D

16. Made new friends? New blogging buddies, yes. There are some amazing people that blog...right Dee? ;) I've caught up with some old ones too.

17. Favorite Night Out - Christmas night. Spent it in central Puerto Vallarta with my boys and good friends.

18. Any regrets? No...just lessons.

19. What do you want to change in 2008? I want to keep the momentum going from 2007.

20. Overall, how would you rate this year? I would rate 2007 as a strong 8. There were issues, but nothing we couldn't get through.

21. Other than home, where did you spend most of your time? Work...work...work... Probably more time than at home??

22. Change your hairstyle? Yep! The color went darker.

23. Buy a new car?? Yep again!! My VW Bug!! Love my car!!!! Guess this goes under question #5.

24. Any car accidents? Whew...No Yep for this one.

25. How old did you turn this year?? 35 years young.

26. Do you have a New Years resolution? Yes...not to make one.

27. Do anything embarassing? Almost daily!! No wait...Don't Tell Anyone

28. Be honest - Did you watch American Idol? NO WAY!!

29. Start a new hobby? BLOGGING!!!!

30. Will you be happy to see 2007 go? I just did...and I'm still happy. I guess that's a yes??

31. Been Naughty or Nice? Both!!! What the heck is the fun of being just one or the other?

Happy New Year to you too dear! I love this year in review! Plus the links back in case we forgot! Isn't it great getting to know all these new e-friends from all over!? I'm looking forward to reading you in 2008!

I loved reading all your answers, but given the amount of time I've spent creating the last few days "review" type posts on my two blogs, methinks 31 questions would push me over the edge. The way I'm feeling at the moment, I'd be able to answer one or two questions per day ... so you might get all the answers in a month or so. More power to YOU (and your friends), however, for doing this thing. Happy New Year!
Hugs and blessings,

Good Morning Grandy,
I loved reading your Year in Review. I don't think I could remember that many things from 2007. LOL. It would take me a long while to just think of stuff. Oh well. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.
