Honey, you’re sick! I’m not sure what great ideas I can give you when what you need is rest!

But I hear you. We’re staying in as well because we’re broke. I’m going ot have to get off my lazy butt in a minute and go find some cheap bubbly. We also stashed away a bag of doritos and somd salso for our Posh Snack. I know that sounds crazy, but we live in Prague and Doritos are NOT usual.

WE’re going to watch movies and make popcorn, and hopefully watch stellar fireworks from our giant windows. Though looking at the totally overcast sky….. maybe not so much. But I do plan on getting dressed up for FI.

Can you guys have a private dance party? 😀

My plans:

New Year’s Eve – work, then go to bed at 9 because…

New Year’s Day – I have to get up at 5 to go to work again.

Here, here!  We have my kids this new years eve. We usually travel to a friends for the night to their party. It’s about 45 mintues away.  We spend the night.  As much as I love my kids, I just don’t want to drag them over there, (there will be other kids there), and I don’t want them stuck sleeping there.  AND I want to sleep in my OWN bed. I probably wouldn’t drink anyways, and end up tempting to drive everyone home if we do go.  So I’d be LAME.  Ugh….

Just brought in the new year here in Australia, by drinking vodka and cranberry juice, while snooping wedding bee posts, and watching Star Trek Voyager (worst star trek series ever, cannot stand Janeway) Must say one of the most uneventful new years to date.

DH and I are having a handful of people over, but definitely not going out to do anything crazy! The roads are scary with drunk drivers and I have no interest in using public transit to get around on NYE! We’ll stay in, drink in the comfort of our own house, and pig out on yummy food!

We’re staying in and making special pizzas – carmelized onions, bacon and pineapple, tomato and parmesean cheese. We also picked up hummus and pita chips.
We also picked up a bottle of champagne and a six-pack of beer.

This is going to sound a bit lame, but we’re going to clean our apartment while we cook – it’s a pig sty and Chinese culture dictates no cleaning on New Year’s Day. FI is half Chinese and REALLY sticks to that one. It’s also a superstition that the whole house should be clean on New Year’s day, so at least I won’t wake up to a mess in 2014. Maybe.

I figure we’ll wear something totally fun (a going-out out fit? something sexy?) while we clean and cook – just for the hell of it. (you BET I will be wearing/breaking in my wedding shoes haha)

I’m so excited! It’s going to be so fun staying in and goofing off with him. 🙂

PS – I was recently sniffly/sore throat sick but ate (ok this is kind of weird) a grated clove of raw garlic in a cup of rice (I was hungry, wanted to test a new gadget, and lazy – excellent combo) yesterday and felt SO MUCH better after all that burning hahaha

PPS – I JUST TURNED 26 LAST WEEK TOO!! Happy Holiday b-days!! 😀

I’m 22, which is supposed to mean that I go out and rage on NYE, right? WRONG. FI and I are not all that into this holiday (read: really, really not into it). To many drunks on the road, and alcohol becomes entirely too expensive where we are tonight. Plus, having a pup with severe separation anxiety means leaving it not as easy as it used to be (great excuse, too). So we are going to have a few like-minded friends over, drink some shots from our undergrad when we became friends, and ring in the new year in a mellow, and to me, super enjoyable, way. Also, after all the Christmas parties, I’m in need of a good, quiet night in. I’m truly an old lady in a young woman’s body. Happy New Year everybody!

I am sick as well with no voice. I may be going over DH’s family’s house for NYE, but I doubt I will stay awake. Oh not to mention I can’t drink due to being preggers. I would much rather stay at home and go to bed early, but DH wants to go out…

@LuluInLove:  Neither of us see the appeal in going out on NYE and getting drunk and all that. Never have done that and probably never will. But if it’s not too cold, we’re going skating outdoors since the rinks will be open. It’s also supposed to snow a bit. Skating outdoors in the snow with FH sounds pretty awesome to me and not lame at all!
