2009 has come to a close and I am hopeful for a bright and exciting 2010. I'm not exactly sure what the new year will have in store for me, but I am open to the possibilities.
I have spent the better part of December fighting off various viruses and mystery illnesses, which have in turn resulted in the neglect my blog has suffered from. So, my solemn pledge for my blog world friends is to be more attentive in 2010 and provide you with lots of entertaining reading/viewing material.
However you spend your New Year's Eve, have a fun filled magical time (because you know it is going to be a blue moon tonight, which won't happen again until 2028).
...and be sure to have a designated driver if you plan on drinking some bubbly.

After a fun filled Halloween, the BF and I attended the Day of the Dead event at The California Center for the Arts. A huge interactive installation was set up and everyone from the community was encouraged to bring objects in memory of their loved ones to leave and in turn, become a part of the installation.
They also had arts and crafts projects for kids and the museum was also open for the evening. We had a fantastic time and will be attending every year from now on.
Of course we took a million pictures...

It is one of my most favorite holidays. Not only because it gives you free license to run around like a crazy person, but also because you are encouraged to channel your inner kid.
The BF and I went to an amazing, epic Luchador themed Halloween party on Saturday night where there was a photo booth for all the party goers. We had a super spooky time and have the pictures to prove it too!

and lived to blog about it.
My sweet BF and I have been doing a lot of hiking this year. I seem to be quite content with hikes that don't test my will to live, but (thankfully) my better half likes to make sure we are always challenged.
Our newest conquest was the big Mt Woodsen and it proved to be the challenge we were looking for.
About a little less than a quarter of the way up we passed this huge water tank.
Okay, my legs are already tired. That water tank is getter smaller though...
By this point I have considered laying down and letting a wild animal make me his lunch.
That water tank is really small now and I kind of feel like I'm on top of the world.
And as soon as I think I can't take another step - I reach the huge 2600 foot payoff.
Yes, I may have shed a tear or two. I also may have threatened to turn back before reaching the top of the mountain, but I didn't. I was exhilarated and exhausted all at the same time once I reached the summit.
We took a few minutes to feel what it was like to stand on top of the world and then turned around to make the trek back down.

This just screams joy and happiness. I love that they don't take themselves too seriously and dive into celebrating the occasion. I'll admit that I've watched this several times in the few days I've known about it. It is beyond sweet and makes me smile.
