Auld Lang Syne...Happy 2012!!

Tuesday, January 3, 2012

It's the first post of the new year! I cannot believe it's 2012--I swear last year moved at warp speed, but I can't help get excited at so many things coming up in twenty twelve.
We had the most fantastic 3-day weekend and it was a blessing to be at home celebrating the new year. Friday night, we went to Zanie's to see John Caparulo's comedy show. I had never been before, but we had so much adult evening for sure and he was hilarious, just like when he's on Chelsea Lately.
Saturday, we had my parents and Jeff's cousin Eddie over--we grilled for lunch and enjoyed the gorgeous 60 degree weather and ate ourselves into a coma before doing it all over again for dinner that night. Jeff wanted to try something new so he made BBQ which was great...I feel lucky I have a guy who can cook so well {when he wants to!}. We played games and watched the ball drop and talked all about our new year's resolutions, and I successfully made it until 1:45AM so I felt like a sober rockstar.

Sunday morning, I got up to make monkey bread and a sausage and egg casserole for brunch. Then we said our goodbyes and hubby and I worked to get our Christmas decorations down. That night, we met up with Lauren and Andy for dinner and to see The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which was one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. The story followed the book really closely and I cannot wait to dive into the 2nd installment of the trilogy.
For my last day off, I went to the gym to get my first 2012 workout in and then did some shopping for the nursery...I PROMISE a progress post is coming this week! We spent the night watching mindless television and catching up on RHOBH and my other junk shows including The Bachelor--I gave it an entire hour before saying hasta la vista to Ben...I just can't handle him.
Happy New Year friends--may this be your best year yet!! OXOX

  8. Yea, I'm not a huge fan of Ben either....I watched the full episode and it seems like this season is just gonna be really dumb. Lots of drama...etc.
