2009 Highlights

2009 is almost over!  Here’s a recap of my year!

Early in 2009, I was a senior at UC Berkeley.  I was taking a few classes and writing an honors thesis on housing policy in Guatemala.

Title of thesis… Shacking Up: Latent Government Bias in Guatemalan Housing Policy (I thought it was kind of cute/pun-y…)

There was a little spring breaking… Vegas was involved, as was my sister’s dental school banquet.

May 2009: I graduated from Berkeley and my sister graduated from Dental School.  We had a joint party.

June 2009: India

July 2009: Home for a month before moving.

Garlic Festival in Gilroy

Wine Tasting in Temecula, CA

August 2009:

Aruba with Momma and Poppa!

Then I moved to Ithaca to go to Grad School at Cornell where I made a ton of new friends!

September 2009:

Went to the NY State Fair saw lots of tractors and MC Hammer

Fostered a dog! Marie the 9 year old (camera shy) German Shepard-Corgie mix with anxiety and a weight problem who I absolutely ADORE but now has a permanent home!

October 2009:

NYC with the Lovely Fella for 3 Yr Anniversary

Went to my first corn maize!

I was Rosie the Riveter for Halloween

November 2009:

Started this blog!  Woo Foodologie!

Went to the UN in NYC

There ARE field trips in Grad School!!

I spent Thanksgiving with the Lovely fella and his family.  Then he came to Ithaca for a week!!

We went to Moosewood!

December 2009:

I started the December recipe challenge and made a ton of recipes!  (click the tag on the side to see them all!)

I got to do the Foodbuzz 24, 24, 24 and made a 12 course vegetarian meal inspired by the 12 Day of Christmas!

Then came Christmas!

The lovely fella couldn’t be there because he had to work at 6:00am on Christmas Day in the Bay Area but it was still a great time!  My two friends, David and Talia, came to help celebrate and experience their first Christmas!

Somehow I just seem to attract tall people... tall boyfriend, tall roommate, tall friends...

2009 has been a great year!  I hope 2010 is even better with more friends and family around!

What’s the most exciting part of 2009 been for you?

    For some reason that picture of the garlic festival doesn’t illustrate how RIDICULOUSLY hot it was that day! Where’s the garlic ice cream!? Great photos!

      I forgot! It was ridiculously hot that day! But I think that’s the only real picture I had of us where we weren’t making ridiculous faces… I thought I’d spare the world for once…
