The morning that we were going to leave for our NYE trip to Vegas, I was looking for a gift certificate for one of the restaurants we were going to eat at. I couldn’t find it where I thought it’d be, and then remembered that Jake sometimes takes the gift certificates I buy and keeps them in his briefcase, so since he was still asleep I checked there.

Hey everyone, so my sexy Vegas post is coming (ha! get it?) but since I am at work on my lunchbreak at the moment, you’re going to get a new year’s resolution-style posting for the moment. Like Lance, I am less into pure resolutions at this stage in my life, but there is something I have been noticing since I’ve been working full-time…
There’s an old saying that life is what happens while you’re making other plans. Well, to a certain extent that’s true, and even a good thing. OTOH, it’s easy to stop living a conscious life when that happens and lose track of your longer-term goals (or even your shorter-term goals). My goal, then (if you want to call it that) is to spend a year taking stock of my life. Here are the two main categories and questions I’m going to ask myself to get started: Continued
I thought that DD’s post on her year in review was a great way to review, encapsulate, and reflect on what had passed, so I decided to give it a go as well. It seems like the best way to set myself up for my New Year’s resolutions, which will be my next post. 2009 was kind of a wild ride, and I’m aiming for more stability in 2010.
January started off kind of rough, as I was battling a kidney infection, turning out not to be a great snowboarder (despite Jake’s attempts to get me to enjoy it), and financial woes (hey, what else is new, the recession was in full swing). The big highlight was the Dooney & Burke wallet that Jake’s mom got me in a failed attempt to manipulate me into getting him to make up with her. I loooove this wallet and still admire it on a practically daily basis. Continued
Ouch. It didn’t start out that way – I woke up the other morning with a sore neck. This happens periodically if I sleep funny (and I think I’d ended up in the spare bedroom for part of that night because Jake took the good sleeping pills and was snoring…and that bed’s not nearly as nice/comfortable). So I didn’t think too much of it.
But then the next day I went out for sushi and happy hour with a couple of friends and when I got back and saw Jake on the couch, I was overcome and we ended up having crazy sex on the bathroom floor (and P.S., why didn’t I ever realize before that if you have sex in a doorway, you can brace yourself at all sorts of angles that are otherwise impossible?). Continued
I have found myself wondering a lot recently why the majority of relationships end. I mean, at best you get one relationship that works out in a “forever” way. While I’m with Lance that just because a relationship ended doesn’t mean that it failed, why are they all ending in the first place? My relationship with Jake has lasted far longer than any other I’ve had, and it’s going great – what makes this one so different?
I think the answer lies in video games. Continued
Our Christmas 2009 was pretty awesome. The best part was hanging out with friends – one of Jake’s friends had us over for dinner on Wednesday night, with plenty of wine drinking and some board games, and last night we went over to one of my friend’s houses for Christmas dinner (and the hostess was Filipino so there was tons of amazing food). Not to mention that my friend’s dad is extremely wealthy and had some projects in mind that led to him asking for Jake’s business card, always a good thing.
On Christmas Eve, we had a sushi lunch and then headed over to Fascinations, where Jake bought me a sexy red Santa’s helper dress with white trim complete with jingle bells, a thong, and a Santa hat (sorry, I couldn’t right-click). Continued
