Happy New Year to Me!

Welcome to 2012 friends! Can't believe we're here! Don't you love new years? Fresh starts? Firsts? Resolutions? I do! I especially enjoyed this NYE... Last year was quite uneventful. Lovey and I went to my parents' house and right after dinner (about 7:30pm) Lovey passed out on the couch. Yup! 7:30PM!! He woke up the next day at 10. For real. So you can imagine my elation when I found out he wanted to do something different this year...Something fun...
Lovey and I met up with his brother's family and in laws for some night time fun under a canopy of twinklies. It was crowded and crazy! No lack of shoving, shivering, or shenanigans here! But we just pretty much went for the fireworks. As soon as they were over we went home. Which is cool... I'm not much of a post midnight crowd kinda gal anyway.
Happy New Year pretty ones!

Where were your first few seconds of the New Year spent?

I'm writing the following down per Lovey's request (recap of "one of the best weekends ever" in his opinion):
Friday: P&V came over after ministry to hang out and open up the Sabbath.
Sabbath: Slept in. Read pretty much all day. Relaxed. Napped. Relaxed. At sunset J&C came over for grilled cheese sandwiches,  BBQ chicken, and chocolate milk. P&V surprised us when they showed up after canceling earlier that day. (WOO!) At 10:45pm we left to the "First Night" event (see pictures above)in our hometown. Got home around 1AM and stayed up talking about life, love, and new years in general.
Sunday: Went to Mt. Baldy with Lovey's dad. After light hiking we went to Giuseppe's (best Persian/Italian food everrr) and had koobideh outside in the fresh air near some lovely foliage (lol). Lovey "drank tea and was happy with his woman by his side". After lunch Lovey took me to Fry's Electronics to buy me a new toy. (If you follow me on IG you know what it is.)
Monday: Had an amazzzzing breakfast, read, relaxed, sat on our patio set while the sun was setting and pretty much did absolutely NOTHING all day. 
What a terrific weekend!
