2008...the unofficial recap

At the end of the year, everyone generally sits back and reflects on what they did or how great the year was for them.
I’d like to take this opportunity to do things my way (like always) and go a completely different route.
I’m going to let you in on a little insight...the things I DID NOT DO or SAY in 2008.
You can draw your own conclusions at the end as to which ones will make the TO DO list for 2009.

Let’s start with the things LL didn’t SAY in 2008:
"No thank you, I don’t feel like going to happy hour after work on Friday"

"Go ahead and tie that bow for me"
“This doesn’t match. Oh well"
“I’m so over wearing my leggings”
“Of course it doesn’t have to be perfect”
“Ok. Let’s go with your idea instead of mine”
“No thank you, I don’t want any wine”
“Ugh. I hate reality shows”
“Aren’t Spencer and Heidi the cutest couple?”
“You had me at Hello”
“A quarterback? I’m not interested”
“I think I’ll go in to work this weekend”
“I’m using my vote for that Archuletta kid”

"I really wish Brangelina would have some more kids"
"My word! Pam Anderson looks stunning"
"Has anyone see my false teeth lying around?"
"Amy Winehouse is truly and inspiration to todays youth"
"Yuck. Guacamole"

And on to the amazing list of things LL didn’t DO in 2008:
Adopt a child from Malawi
Give birth to twins

Ive got a long year of not accomplishing things ahead of me. Here goes nothing. Or everything. I cant be certain what you would say in the situation.

Wishing everyone the best in 2009!

I don't think I've ever been more proud of everything you [didn't] accomplish this year! It's a wonder you had time to do anything with all the items on this list!

You're an inspiration to us all.

Hey boo! Happy New Year! You always make me laugh. Especially when you talk about leggings. haha
I cant believe how big Kara has gotten. Has it really already been two years?! I love that you had a football party for her.
