My Year in Review - 2006!

I went back to Wild Waves this summer after not having gone there since I was a kid!

Now that we are into 2007 (can't believe we have hit that milestone, I remember 1987!), it's time to look back on all the fun times I had this last year. From my solo trip in January to Vancouver, to the holidays, seeing Madonna twice in concert, seeing Hall and Oates in concert, PM Dawn, Canada trips, Portland trips, family, friends and more! Just take a look...

The beginning of 2006 saw my solo trip to Vancouver, a makeover at Macy's, meeting my friend Josh on Valentine's Day, Jeremy's birthday and a trip to Portland for mom and me...By March, I celebrated St. Paddy's Day playing bingo, went to the women's conference, met Shelby, Nick and went out dancing with Josh! Early April sent me back to Canada to visit Brad and check out the sights, celebrate Easter and mom's birthday, and at the end of the month, see Madonna at the Coachella festival! May saw me preparing for ten days visiting my dad and family in Sacramento and seeing Madonna in concert, on the catwalk! In June I attended the Hall and Oates concert in the front row, started a job at Microsoft, celebrated Nick's birthday and our anniversary. July I met Barrie and saw local sights, then went to Wild Waves for some awesome fun, hit the zoo and Microsoft's company picnic! August was busy as I went to see the fireworks competition in Canada, took mom to Canada for some spaghetti, celebrated Jodi's birthday, and saw a couple of great concerts! September gave me some time to start a new job so I made use of it by going to Multnomah Falls in Portland, Bainbridge Island, Tacoma and of course the Puyallup Fair to meet Spongebob for the third time! I also went dancing some more! October hung out with Jim for karaoke, went to Victoria solo and took great pics! In November  got all dolled up for a model shoot, celebrated my birthday several times, and enjoyed Thanksgiving! December was busy with a very cool auction, Xmas, parties for my friends and the PM Dawn concert, and that was my year! Thank you for taking this trip alongside me! Let's see what 2007 brings!
