Best of 2009

There is this Best of 2009 Challenge going on with 20 Something Bloggers. Each day you have to talk about the best ______ that happened this year. I think this idea is really cute. However there was no way I was going to be able to blog everyday and plus some of the topics I'm not a fan of. So here is my version. I'm going to talk about a few best ofs at a time and any of the one I didn't like I just skipped over.

Here's the first few!

What was your best trip in 2009?

Defiantly my trip to Jamaica! It was soo pretty there and it was just the break I needed. Plus I got to climb a waterfall! How many people can say that??

Restaurant moment.

This was really hard for me to come up with. I don’t go out to eat a lot and when I do go it’s usually to a place I’ve been to a million times. Finally I remembered that a few weeks I ago I finally went to this amazing place that I’ve never been before. It’s called Barnacle Bill's and it’s near where I live. It’s supposedly has the BEST burgers in NJ. The restaurant was fun, one of those places where there are peanut shells all over the floor, and the burgers were pretty good. Huge, but really tasty. Also their long island ice teas are insane! One and you’re done. lol


I’ve read soo many books this year I can’t even remember them all. I would say the best series I read was the True Blood series by Charlaine Harris. I devoured the whole series in just a few months and I cannot wait for the next book to come out in May! I also liked how they are so different from the TV Show. It allowed me to like both equally and now I can still expect some surprises with the next season. Plus book three was one of my favorites so I can’t wait for the show to come back!

Night out.

I think my trip to Atlantic City was one of my best nights out this year. It was so much fun being with my friends and my team dominated at Beer Pong that night! I usually suck at the game so I was thrilled when we won 4 games in a row! The only bad thing about the night out was the next morning! I had the worst hangover of my life. It lasted 2 days. Literally. Totally worth it though!

Moment of peace. An hour or a day or a week of solitude.

My moment of peace comes every Friday when I get home from work. I sit down with my dinner, get ready with my DVR shows and just decompress. After a crazy week of work this is what really helps me calm down and get re-energized.

What are you best moments from this year??

My best moment of the year was when a legal issue that was hanging over my head for 5 freaking years finally went away. No more appeals for the jackass to take against me.

Another moment was my cousin's wedding in October. It was so much fun and really proved to me how much my family loves one another.

I think I love this type idea and I will steal it soon!
