Happy New Year/Binary Day!

Hey everyone! Happy 2010! Happy New Year!

Happy 01-01-10, or as my husband, the techie, cleverly put it, Binary Day! (Since computers operate on 0’s and 1’s)

I won’t tell him if you’re rolling your eyes 😉

Did everyone have an awesome last day of 2009? Mine was great! Although I did have to work, I got off half day, and headed to the gym for my last workout of 2009, which was a 4 mile run in 39 minutes and then a quick leggy workout. Cheers to 2009 workouts, and may 2010’s be even bigger and better!


I was SO glad I made all the goodies/appies Thursday night, because I knew I would need to get in a nap if I was going to make it until midnight. So after lunch, I hit the sheets for about an hour and a half for a glorious and refreshing nappy.

Woke up, and then it was all about getting ready for the New Year’s Eve festivities:)



And as more friends showed up, more food magically appeared on the counter:


There were only three of us couples, but we had enough food to feed an army! Twas a feast, in deed.

After catching up and munching on the appetizers, it was time to go downstairs to the party room to start getting our celebration on!

The girls kicked off the celebration with a cinnamon applesauce shot:


Just a wee bit of a kick 😉

The rest of the night, I had one more shot and a couple vodka and orange juices:



My friend, Destiny, brought over her dachshund, Pocket, and while we partied downstairs, they played and played and played upstairs:



Around 10:00 we took a break from the festivities to eat an actual dinner. Destiny’s boyfriend, Steve, brought over all the fixings for tacos. We had chicken, shrimp, and veggie tacos for everyone. And before long, it was nearing midnight! You know what that means…time to put your party hat on! What what!


Thankfully, we actually did the count down to the right time zone this year! haha. And there’s no friends I’d want to ring it in with more! Love these people 🙂

We actually all made it to bed before 2:00, and woke up around 10 for breakfast, coffee, and the obligatory New Year’s Day mimosa:

While I did partake in a mimosa, my next drink wasn’t so fun. I don’t feel too hung over or anything, but to give myself a little perk me up, I made myself a drink that tasted worse than either of the shots I had last night: Amazing Grass + Water:


Blech!! It definitely needed a chaser…


Yes, I actually enjoy the taste kombucha enough for it to be a chaser 😉

Then Shane got around to making a delicious breakfast of scrambled eggs and toast. I’ve said it before, but the techie (hey I kinda like that name for him,) makes the best eggs evah.


To compliment the eggs, we had cinnamon raisin Ezekiel, and Millet toast:


What a delicious first meal of 2010 😀

All in all it was a fabulous night of friends, cards, dance parties, and blow horns to ring in the new year! Can’t wait to see what 2010 entails.

Here’s to 2010 being everything you hope for and more. Cheers!

The rest of the day is going to be spent getting my pictures from the cruise organized – everyone has been asking to see them, and I’ve been a lazy bum and have only uploaded them here on the bloggy –  and possibly hitting up a movie later. Hmm Up in the Air or It’s Complicated…


How did you reign in the new year? A relaxing night at home? A night out on the town? A little of both?

  1. I would totally recommend seeing “Up in the Air” I saw it with my mom last week and I totally loved it and so did she!! We are both VERY critical about movies and thought this was a VERY good choice!! I also didnt party last night, but we had a nice roast today for lunch!! 🙂

  2. We stayed in, too. We had a night array of appetizers and let the dogs play, too. Very similar to your evening! Happy 2010!

  3. We stayed in, watched The Hangover and played Wii. Looks like you guys had a great night in, too!

  4. Great way to kick off 2010–a hearty breakfast! I love those serving platters/bowls!!

  5. What a fun evening! I have to say that a relaxing evening is the perfect way to kick off the new year for me.

    Happy New Year Paige!


  6. happy new year to you! i had a very mellow new years, just the way i like ’em!

  7. We had a very similar night… saw Up in the Air. Three of us liked it, but my sister, Kim, was disturbed by it and couldn’t explain why. Then, food, drinks and card games, and did I say drinks? It’s so nice that they could stay over, and I cooked a big breakfast. No hangovers here either:-) Then, sadly we took all the inside decorations down…too cold out to take the outside ones down.
    Next year we should have a binary day too, right Shane?
    Have a great 2010.
