2008 started off with Mark heading to China, Thailand, and Australia for 3 weeks with his brother. It was the longest 3 weeks of my life. At the end of January, Mark and I attended the wedding of my friends Colin and Karen. It was the first of 3 weddings we attended this year.
It was a lovely wedding.
Going into the spring it was pretty quiet. I was busy spending my tax return on my Peacock feather tattoo, and paying off my credit cards, only to use them again.
During the summer Mark and I went to Deep Creek, MD with some friends of his. During the weekend trip I thought I had a cold, but as the weekend went on I discovered it was actually Strep Throat. My older brother was already living with by this time with his cats, and I have reason to believe I got it from them.
As August approached, Mark and I attended another wedding. This one was for my friends Jessica and Tommy. Their wedding was actually just the reception, but was lovely regardless.
Let's not forget the baby shower I attended for my friend Gillian who had a bouncing baby boy in October!! It's safe to say that I was the one friend who did not buy baby clothes and bought baby blankets, bath toys, and a bottle brush. Frankly, kids grow fast and I wanted her to be able to actually use the items.
November came in the land of the weddings and Mark and I were once again in attendance of our friends Ashleigh and Leo's wedding.
Talk about a lovely wedding! They spent thousands of dollars on this wedding which was solely a celebration of the two of them. Too bad it was held on a Sunday, or else Mark and i would have been there all night partying!
Then of course Mark and I took our Bahamian cruise, which was great.
This year was all about the weddings! I had little money problems, but my budget was pretty tight. I only had one real big car problem, and I'm thankful Peanut only had pink eye.
I'm looking forward to 2009.... and hopefully I can attain my goal of a new job. I applied at XM recently and today I called to see if I could pester someone into interviewing me... unfortunately they are on vacation until Jan 5th, 2009. Another part of 2009 I am looking forward to is my best friend's wedding. I know it will be a blast and I look forward to sharing everything with you through pictures and more as the 2009 year developes.
