Kissing the old year out, kissing the new year in
When Hubby was still Boyfriend, and we were dating, we spend NYE just the two of us, watching a movie, and snuggling. Last year we went to a party some friends were throwing, but still, I just wanted to be home, and doing something more like what my family does. This year, I got my wish, thanks to some wonderful friends.
We had plans to get together for munchies and games, before heading out to watch the ball drop. Before I could leave the house, however, I had to engage in a long standing tradition my family has: putting out money.
After the money was out, off we went to "the farm" to hang with our friends. I took a tray of pirogies, and there was tons of other yummy things to eat as well. After everyone was there and had full tummies, it was game time. We played a game called Say Anything, which was amazingly fun!
Finally, at 11:30, we decided to head out. We went to the Eagles in Kittanning, since it was close. Once we got there, we were given hats and noisemakers.
Finally, the countdown began. 5.....4.....3.......2.......1 HAPPY NEW YEAR.
We then spent a few moments toasting to good friends, and well wishes for the new year.
Shortly after this, Hubby and I went home. We retrieved our hidden money, blew the vuvuzela, and found a much better use for Hubby's ill fitting NYE hat.
Then we settled in to watch an episode of Mad Men on the DVR.
I have heard it said that whatever you are doing when the new year comes in is how you will spend the majority of that year. If that is the case, I will happily spend lots of time with my wonderful friends and my awesome Hubby.
Here is to another year full of blessings.
