First I just want to thank you for your support on my first blog entry! I look forward to getting to know you throughout this year!
I love the New Year celebration. It’s the celebration of a fresh start, a way of pursuing new goals. As I mentioned in my first post, I have made resolutions for the past two years that had something to do with blogging. First, I blogged every day, then no blogging at all. I think this year I will take a break from the new year’s resolutions all together, just to change things up. 🙂
Another reason I love the New Year celebration is the time we spend with friends. This year, we went to our friends’ house. It was so much fun!
First, we had a Taco buffet for dinner. It was so good! For dessert, our other friends brought an apple caramel pie and ice cream. Seriously, I have some talented friends!
Then we played games until midnight. First, we played a dice game called Farkle. This is a neat game because you can be on a losing streak, and it just takes one roll of the dice to change your luck. Lisa, who started out in the bottom bracket at the beginning of the game, was our champion of the night!
The next game played was “Ticket to Ride” which is a strategy game involving trains. It can last a couple hours if you have some real strategists in your midst. Basically, you are trying to get from one part of the country to the other using all of your trains. The trick is to not get blocked by the other trains and not giving away your destinations. Lisa’s husband won that game.
At midnight, we filled our glasses, watched the ball drop and got a smooch from my sweetie. 🙂 Perfect end to the evening…er…morning?
What did you do to celebrate? Do you have any special traditions?
