How I Spent My 2007

Honestly ... I have no idea where this year went. While I feel that a lot of stuff went down this year it seemed very much blink-and-you-missed it over all. It doesn't seem like an entire year ago that David and I were in Las Vegas for New Year's Eve and yet ... here we are, a full year later. I find myself feeling very thankful for making it thru another amazing year. I managed to make some really great new friends this year and also managed to spend a lot of time with my dear friends that I've had for years. I also got to celebrate my first full year with David ... all in all, it was a pretty kickass year.

Back on January 1, David and I were the first two folks to skydive with as it was part of my Xmas gift for him. I had ZERO intention on jumping out of that airplane but a funny thing happened on the van drive to the airport ... I somehow found the courage to suit up and jump out of that plane. It isn't something I'm ever likely to do again but it was really nice doing it with David:

In February, David and I celebrated our first year anniversary together ...

... and to celebrate, we spent 10 days in Barcelona, Spain:

I managed to survive the first of a few major fires that broke out in LA:

And I spent another Passover with the Hauslaib family in Connecticut:

I was fortunate enough to be invited to attend the cd release party for Tori Amos in Times Square in the Spring and then was EXTREMELY fortunate to spend some one-on-one time with her backstage at the Fox Theater with my best friend Sarah in the Fall:

I got to see Legally Blonde on Broadway and got to meet stars Laura Bell Bundy and Orfeh backstage (thanks to my new friend Brett):

Knocked Up, starring Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogan, opened in June ... and David and I ended up having cameos in the movie:

I celebrated another birthday, my first in LA ... and I got to party with an amazing new group of LA friends at The Abbey:

In July, I was very fortunate enough to attend David Beckham's first game with the LA Galaxy at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA ... and I got to hang out with Pink reader Sara who won my PITNB/LA Galaxy ticket giveaway contest:

I got to attend the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards which were held at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV:

I was able to see Lance Bass take on the role of Corny Collins in Hairspray on Broadway ... and Hairspray cast member Lori Eve Marinacci brought David and me backstage to meet the cast, including Lance Bass:

Alex O'Loughlin, the star of the hit CBS show Moonlight, showed Pink is the new Blog some lurve:

The GangTM and I took in our first LA Dodgers game:

I got to be the meat in a Reichen Lehmkuhl and Ryan Barry sandwich:

David and I caught E.T. at a DRIV-IN movie in Manhattan:

Kitson showed Pink is the new Blog and Jossip some lurve in their holiday window display:

And, Woot!, one of my most favoritest words ever (and a word that I have been using on the blog for years now) was chosen as the Word of the Year:

Not too shabby a year, I think. And so ... this is my last post of the year ... I am putting my computer away and I won't be touching it again until 2008. I'll be back to posting tomorrow, natch, but the integrity of the post will depend heavily on how much champagne I have to drink tonight.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, Y'ALL! I <3 U ALL!!! Have fun, be safe ... I'll see y'all next year.
