Happenings

a picture that Amy and I took on the first day of 2008!!


I think that it is absolutely ridiculous that a flight to Hawai'i ($1,017) cost more than double the cost of a flight to Dublin. ($450) I'm not even asking to leave to the country!! Just let me get to Dorothy....


Also, I think a New Year's resolution for me can be to always mentally run through what day it is and why I'm leaving a message before the magic lady finishes saying "...after the tone..." I'm tired of worrying about he awkward silence in my message before I complete my thought:

"This is Annie and I'm calling on... (let's have another set of ellipses just for sarcastic -and unnecessary- emphasis) ...Friday"
Sorry, Chloe and all the Brennts who are subjected to my sad pause before I figured out it was Friday.


***
On New Year's Day, my family threw me a party. Amy is so good to me - she remembered me drooling over Glorie's party (well, I wasn't actually drooling. Admiring with a wish might be a better way to put it); she and Suzy rallied together a pretty party for me with snowflakes hanging from the ceiling and decorations and a beautious matching cake...

the ring my parents gave me







had to get around to the candles on the other side of the cake topper...


Judah really liked the "i[ce] cw[r]eam". Such fwams of cuteness, I can't.even.stand.it.

We had Chicago pizza for dinner and the cake was chocolate, if you cared for the details. =) Did I mention that I feel celebrated?

Oh, and, Amy and I watched Shadowlands. It is physically impossible to not cry when you watch that movie (in its entirety...my dad didn't cry, but he didn't see the whole thing).

In closing, let's have a new countdown:

Driving Permit: 3 days

Birthday: 7 days

Graduation: many days...but not too many, which is a nice thing. :)
