Happy New Year! Whether you kept it low-key or went out and donned your most fabulous glitterlicious outfit, I hope that you had a wonderful evening celebrating!
Ryan and I debated staying in or going out, but we ultimately decided to stay local since he’s still hobbling around on crutches. Our celebration started with seeing The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Ben Stiller was fabulous, the scenery was beautiful, and the story kept our attention – definitely a movie worth seeing in the theater!
After the movie we drove over to Wegmans to pick-up dinner fixings. Ever since we moved into our new apartment I’ve been eying the lobster tank at Wegmans and what better occasion to enjoy a fancy lobster dinner than New Year’s Eve? Fun fact: Wegmans will steam the lobsters in the store for you!
While our lobsters were getting their steam bath, we perused the aisles for whatever else we thought we may need and within 10 minutes the lobsters were waiting for us in a brown paper bag, wrapped in tinfoil. When we got home all we had to do was steam the broccoli, cook the potatoes (a la microwave), set the table, unwrap the lobster, and pop the bubbly.
Around 10 p.m. I slowly started drifting so I asked Ryan to wake me up just before the ball dropped… But he fell asleep too! We both woke up at 12:12 a.m., shared a belated New Year’s kiss, and crawled into bed. Wild and crazy New Year’s Eve celebrations may be behind us (or there may be a few more in our future?), but one thing will always remain the same… I will be asleep before midnight.
Rumor has it that pickle juice is a good hangover cure?! Thankfully neither Ryan nor I woke up with a hangover so we weren’t taking pickle shots this morning. As much as I love pickles, I’m not sure that I could stomach them much before noon.
Question: Do you have any New Year’s traditions?
