I realize I'm a few days late, but I think I'm recovered enough to put thoughts together and create a post you can understand!
We were busy all day New Years Eve. First I did the family stuff with the kids, which you can read about here if you want. After the kids stuff was done, it was time to go to the store to get supplies so the husband and I could get our drinks on!
I would just like to throw it out there that I don't' drink anywhere near as much as I used to. But when the opportunity presents itself for me to get drunk, I jump on it like white on rice! And when it can be done at home and I don't have to drive, it's on like Donkey Kong!
Ok, enough stupid phrases. All we wanted to for was get to the liquor store, then to the grocery store. A typical 45 minute trip took us 2 hours. Where the hell were people going?!? We sat at the entrance of the parking lot for a half hour before I could even fathom where the hell I was going to park? What the hell people? I needed to buy my drinks!
We finally made it in. The husband bought his $50 bottle of scotch and me, my $10 bottle of wine. What can I say, I'm a cheap date! Then it off to the craziness that was our grocery store.
We made it out of there with some awesome filet mignon, potatoes, and veggies. It was freakishly warm here for New Years, so we decided to grill outside. The steaks were so good it was almost orgasmic! Topping those off with roasted marshmallows just made the night perfect.
We both had a few drinks in us at this point so naturally it was a great idea to make a little bonfire in our grill. Surprisingly the fire department wasn't called, but it did occupy the kids and helped them make it to the ball drop.
Sorry about the quality of the pictures. Using my phone to take pictures outside at night is not an easy thing to begin with. Add many celebratory drinks to that and you just have to take what you can get!
I hope everyone had a great New Years. I hope for many great things in 2011. Both for me and you!
