Some of 2008 in pictures

I give you 2008 in pictures (an idea I have totally stolen from Jacqui and Clint).

January 2008

I drank a Mexican Pepsi (Love it!)

I got impatient

I went to Macworld 2008 and saw MacBook Airs on a string.

People flocked to them

February 2008

I turned 31.


My TV (and me) moved into Marisa’s apartment.

Our new media center

May 2008

Becky and Eric got married (and not much happened in March or April).

We retreated to a lovely cabin in the woods, with neighbors across the river who really liked classic rock.

The cabin is pretty

July 2008

I visited my Mom and we went to Mount Vernon.


August 2008

I got a Kodak Zi6 (which I like more than my Flip Mino HD, no matter what certain tech pundits will have you believe).

The Box

September 2008

I had my first article published in a real, live magazine.

Look mom, I'm in a magazine

Off to Las Vegas for VMworld (and it’ll probably be my last VMworld ever!).

I heart VMworld

Marisa and I went to Hoover Dam whilst in Las Vegas.

Up shot

And then we got all fancy and spent the weekend at the Ritz Carlton at Lake Las Vegas (it was really quite nice, and it has turned Marisa into a hotel snob).

November 2008

I got a Flip Mino HD and made a silly movie with it.

I saw my book in print for the first time (and it looked awesome).

Building a WordPress blog people want to read

My mom visited for Thanksgiving, met some of Marisa’s family, and met with Marisa in her role as my girlfriend for the first time.

Mom is suspicious

We went to City Hall and looked cute.

Aww, ain't we cute?

December 2008

I got engaged to Marisa.

Engagement ring(s) on hand

Spent Christmas with my mom and bro, as is McNulty tradition (and no one fought!).

Merry Christmas, Flickr peeps!

  1. hiya! I know this is an older post, but beautiful pictures all over this blog, for sure. I’m wondering, where you got the engagement/wedding band rings for marisa? They are awesome!
    You can email me at

  2. Hey Sarah, I replied to you on Twitter… but in case anyone else is wondering… we had the engagement rings custom made based on a design by Marisa (and the diamonds were her grandmother’s).
