In a way for myself have come full circle. Growing up used to watch movies/tv then watch the ball drop and then go to bed. 

Then used to go out and party hardy…

Now it is back to watch movies/tv then watch the ball drop and then go to bed. The life of a mother of a 15 month old who likes to get up early in the morning…

For my NYE used to be about staying up to watch the ball drip and then drinking myself silly. Now I’ll probably stay home and watch the ball drop with FH, we’ll have a New Year’s kiss and go to bed. 

FH and I are probably the most boring people now that we’re in our 20’s. 

ETA: New Year’s Day we fix black eyed peas for good luck, and we don’t do laundry or sweep either to avoid washing away or sweeping out luck/money/friendship or whatever that tradition is. I just like to use it so I can have a lazy day ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t do any sort of traditions, but I heard it’s good luck to wear yellow underwear lol. So I googled it, and there’s a lot of different colors to wear that all mean something different. I’m not sure what color I’ll wear yet.

As a kid we always went to watch the midnight fireworks. I continued that tradition with DS until we moved away from the city a few years ago. There were a few years when I had a babysitter for DS and had some wild nights ringing in the new year, but they were not the norm. And now, I will probably be asleep at midnight. I just cannot stay up late anymore. It’s pathetic, and I am cool with that. ๐Ÿ™‚

@30somethingbee:  It’s sad, because we are 22 and 23. FH and I have always been homebodies, but we actually went out all the time when we were in high school and when I first started college. I know a lot of it has to do with priority changes, but our friends call us grandma and gramps because to us a good day is one where we got the house cleaned and paid all the bills. Oh, the exciting life.
