So I think Fiance and I are really boring?? haha. The last two years we’ve been together, both years we just made a nice dinner, watched movies, watched the ball drop, and went to bed early.
The problem is that neither of us like bars on an average night— make it 10x as crowded and you couldn’t pay us to go. (we are lame? lol). Pretty much all of our friends either spend the holiday home with their families OR want to go wild n’ crazy at a bar.
So, are we the only ones that are boring on NYE?

Haha, don’t feel bad. My fiance and I do the same thing. He comes over, we watch the ball drop and that’s pretty much it! Lol if it makes you feel any better, I have to work new years eve :[

LOL.. we’ll probably be pretty boring this year. Everything is just so expensive on NYE and the stuff that isn’t is such a hassle… we’re usually happiest at a friend’s houseparty, but no one is throwing one this year and we don’t really want to, either. 🙂

I think we’re going to have an open house late afternoon or early evening. And who ever wants to stay til midnight-great! Last year we both fell asleep before midnight!

For the last two years we have gotten together with a group of close friends and had a fun time at home with a big adult sleepover added to it. This year we are doing the same thing and it’s being hosted by my best friend. This has turned into a tradition with 4 of our close friends. It’s fun, we have a good new years eve at home and then eat cinnamon rolls hungover the next day, haha

Depending on the year, but hubby works, but we usually hang out with family somewhere. The past few years, his cousins have hat a fun party where you dress up according to the theme (70s, Cowboys, funny hats, etc.). We’re boring, we don’t really do the bar/club scene so you’ll never see us there on NYE!

Hubby’s 5-year-old son will be visiting us over new year’s, so we’ll be boring as well! The biggest question is whether to let him stay up, or to put him to bed…

VEGAS!!! sooooo excited. We got a suite at the new property on the strip – vdara at city center. fun fun fun!! Hubby loves to party, so its pretty much a given that we wont be spending NYE at home watching TV.
i found the perfect sequin skirt to wear (haute hippe) but damn i dont want to pay $400 for a skirt I will likely never wear again…when else but new years could i wear sequins?

Normally we’re boring on NYE too. Except this year we’re GETTING MARRIED!!!! Haha… I know you wanted boring responses, so last year we went to a bar with a few friends, and the year before I spent at my brother’s house in Orlando (away from the FH!!!) with my fam.

We’re hoping to be in Lake Tahoe for New Year’s Eve. It all depends on whether or not I’ll be able to get Wednesday, Dec. 30th off. I am pushing to get things squared away so I can take it off and head to Lake Tahoe. Generally, I’m a home body and usually very boring. This will be our first New Year’s Eve together. We’ve only known each other for 9 months.

We do what we always do–party at my place! We have a collection of about fifty pounds of homemade confetti that we add to every year. We invite all our friends, watch movies, play games like Apples to Apples and Rock Band, and when midnight rolls around, we have an epic confetti battle in the garage. LOVE it. Absolutely my favorite holiday. It just feels so fantastic to start a new year right and fresh and fun. 🙂

Usually we’re pretty boring, I’ve only been to a NYE party once and that was a family friend’s.
But this year we’ll be in Hawaii being boring, so it’ll be 10x better! 😀
@otb – getting married on NYE is probably the least boring thing you could ever do, and your NYE’s will never be boring again since it’ll be your anniversary! how fun and congrats!

@ otb.. that’s pretty cool! Is it an early wedding/reception, or will you and your guests bring in the new year together?
IDK what we’ll do this year.. we want to do something

Nothing that I know of. Unless a friend has a party or get together, we will likely stay home and relax.
We don’t like to drive around with all the drunks either. It makes me VERY nervous =

@mimosa & penga – Thanks! The ceremony is the middle of the day 2:00 pm. And reception starts at 6:00 with dinner at 7:45 and a champagne toast at midnight!!! So excited, less than a month away!
