On December 31, 2011, at 11:59 p.m exactly., I kissed my husband and wished him a happy new year.
Tomorrow (or tonight), I will do the exact same thing, but wish him happy anniversary!
I am one lucky lady!
In the past, New Year’s Eve was another night of work. I always had to work because I was a server or bartender. I do not actually remember the last time I celebrated the New Year without also serving someone shots…
For 2011, I did not have to serve any shots, carry any food, take any order! No! For 2011, I spent New Year’s Eve with my husband eating tacos, going for ice cream and debating whether or not we should find the DUI checkpoints in Wichita and continuously drive through them to wish the officers happy new year and laugh because we didn’t drink a drop.
Well, we did have some hot cocoa, which we made with our NEW TEAPOT.
And we didn’t do that… Although it sounded like LOADS of fun.
Do I feel like an old fuddy-duddy? Yes… of course I do! But we didn’t have any parties planned, and I decided early on in the day that I wanted to spend the night with my Husband for once.
(Last year, I spend New Year’s shivering my butt off because the power went out.)
All in all I had a lovely New Year’s Eve. Today, I am having a lovely New Year’s Day (doing laundry – it is Sunday, after all). Tomorrow, I will have a lovely anniversary – if we can only figure out what we’re going to do!
And, now, 2011 in review!
Husband and I celebrated our first anniversary!
I turned 23 (and my mother got older*).
I lost 10 pounds. (I am fluctuating unhappily between 130 and 133 every other day or so.)
I made friends.
I started my career. A big girl job :)
What’s in store for next year?
I know for sure that Husband and I will celebrate another year married. I know for sure that I will turn 24 (sorry mom). I know for sure that I will take a long walk across a well-decorated stage decked out in a pretty black cap and gown with a few great people.
I know for sure 2012 will be just as good or better than 2011 with the same problems and the same blessings.
And then everything’s going to end in December ;)
How was your New Year’s Eve/Day celebration?
Did you make any resolutions? I completely forgot to do that! Coming soon!
What did that * mean? Well, my mother asked me not to turn 23 this summer. I looked at her and said, “Mom. I already turned 23. I’ll be 24 next year.” She sighed.
It was hilarious.
