Happy New Year! It’s 1-1-11!

Welcome to 2011! I hope today has been a good one for you and your family! My 2011 was supposed to start with a 6 mile run…my LAST long run of marathon training! But the weather had other plans. It rained and thundered all morning, so we have to run tomorrow instead. We spent a lazy morning with my parents instead, had lunch with them then drove to our house in Mississippi to spend a few days taking care of some things. We are Mexican for dinner and went to the grocery store (where they have EASTER CANDY OUT! NO JOKE!) and now we are at home trying to stay warm. Let’s backup to our very exciting New Year’s Eve…

Partying like us crazy kids do…sitting by the fire with the dogs. This is humorous because Sassy HATES Bella. Sassy had the good seat closest to the fire, then Bella comes and starts leaning over toward her, but Sassy stood her ground and refused to budge. It. was. hilarious.


Last night of Christmas decorations. I love my parents house decorated for Christmas!


Look at our fun New Year’s hats!



Dad was asleep by 8:30

Mom was asleep by 9:30

We were out at 11:30. Woo. hoo.

People in my parents neighborhood were going crazy with fireworks. It sounded like they were blowing up the street from about 7:00 till well past midnight. Bella was not a fan and kept barking and growling!

The girls love when Grandpa eats because they usually get some food. This picture was cute. They are sitting watching him eat and he dropped a piece and they both looked down, but it is too far of a jump, so they didn’t know what to do or how to get to it!


Regardless of if you stayed home or partied all day and night, I hope you had a safe and Happy New Year! Now, it will take me until March to remember to write “2011” and not “2010”…..

QOTD: What did you do last night to ring in the new year?

    For the first time in a few years I acted my age and stayed up until about 2am. Go me! Large amounts of coffee and many board/card games were involved. I don’t think I’ve laughed so hard in a VERY long time! It was a great night!
