Don't Let the Door Hit Ya...

Well, its time to say a fond farewell to 2008 and welcome the brand new, never been used model: 2009! All the possibilities are laid out before us, endless possibilities for our futures--but, I don't want to talk about the future today! Today, we are taking a look back into the year of two thousand and EIGHT!
Last night I couldn't go to sleep, what was keeping me up? 2008 was! I was thinking of all the different things that happened this past year and all of my favorite things. So you get the product of my sleepless night!
Here goes...

FAVORITE SONG OF 2008:
This is a tough one, I've really enjoyed itunes and listening to some great music! So you're getting more than one song:



1. Fall for you by Secondhand Serenade (has to be number one, I just love that song!)

2. It ends tonight by The All-American Rejects

3. Thunder by Boys Like Girls

4. Stranger by Secondhand Serenade

5. The Reason by Hoobastank

honorable mention: The Call by Regina Spektor


FAVORITE MOVIE OF 2008:

I loved IRONMAN! Followed closely by Dark Knight and Wall-E and Kung Fu Panda!



sort-of honorable mention: Twilight, it was just so low budget and there were so many things just off, but it was TOO FUN a night not to mention!


FAVORITE TV SHOW OF 2008:

The Office--hands down!




FAVORITE BOOK OF 2008:

This is also easy, I started the Twilight series this year, and I'm sorry but nothing else I read this year topped those books!




FAVORITE VACATION OF 2008:

This one is actually hard, since any vacation is awesome and amazing in its own way! I loved going to Moab as a family, that was fantastic! And I loved going to see my sister in Las Vegas, but not my whole family could be there with me....So I guess I would have to say our best trip was up to Washington in October!




FAVORITE OUTFIT OF 2008:

Oh yeah, this one!:


(OH how I love those nylons! bliss...)


FAVORITE PERSON OF 2008:



Hmmmm, how to pick a favorite person?! Over the last few months since my sister stopped working I've gotten to talk to her atleast a few times a DAY, and it just reaffirms to me how much I truly love her! She's one of my all- time favorites!

On a more "famous" level, (Kristie, you're famous in my world!) I love John Vesely (also known as Secondhand Serenade) for his music--amazing! I also love Patrick Dempsey! The cast of The Office! And of course Thomas S. Monson!


MOST DRASTIC CHANGE OF 2008:

I guess on a slightly less drastic level, I chopped all my hair off!



BEST MOMENTS OF 2008:

*trip to Moab


*the birth of Samuel Walker!


*taking the summer off work

*Walker Family Reunion


*Bryce & Tamsyn's wedding!



*Bethany starting kindergarten


*our 7th anniversary


*visit to Kristie's


*Christmas!


WORST MOMENTS OF 2008:

Aww, really? I can't think of any horrible things that have happened to us! Well, atleast I don't want to dwell on any thing I might could think of! Sorry, this is all warm fuzzies!


We feel so very very blessed and grateful for the blessings we've received this last year! So thank you to all of you that have contributed to our wonderful 2008, and we're looking forward to spending a great 2009 with you as well! BRING IT ON!

6 awesomeness!...and attractiveness!:

I love you with short hair. the outfit is to die for. I'm tempted to get it as well except I'm afraid I'd look horrible in it.

Great blog. It was fun to find out your favorites of the year. I wish we could have had you over for the new year but with Abigail being sick I have banned our family from other families until she is feeling better. We are no longer going to be sick. That is my new years res. We will see how it will work out.

But i am determined that our families get together and hang out. Since we always talk about it and it never happens. Our fault entirely.

Anywho, this is a whole blog in itself so I will end now.

Later gal.

You could TOTALLY pull off that outfit Shell! (It looks WAY better in person by the way, that isn't the best picture--don't I sound humble? haha) You should get it--SERIOUSLY!
Shanna, we WILL get together! I promise! You let me know when Abigail starts feeling better, and we will make it happen! :)
