New Year’s Eve Celebration

On Friday, Ryan and I headed to P-Town, Indiana to hang with our friends Todd and Carrie.  It also happens to be his new place of residency since he FINISHED COLLEGE and all.  I think I forgot to mention that on my blog.. but I will!

So anyway, we went to get his room arranged and organized and to hang out for a New Year’s Eve celebration!  Little did he know that he would have to go back TODAY (after we just got back last night) for a job interview.  I’m so sad because I still have a week left of break and I hate when he has to leave.  :-(

We had a great time on our short trip though. I don’t usually like New Year’s Eve because it is SO overrated and there is so much pressure to have FUN FUN FUN bringing in the new year and the people on TV look like they’re having a blast at Times Square when I’m just at home in my PJ’s watching.

BUT it is what you make it!  This year was still simple, but it’s more fun when you spend it in a different environment and with fun people!  I was really tired by the time 2011 rolled around so I think I’m getting old.

After we set up Ryan’s room that day and got a few things at Target, we were ready to celebrate the New Year.

Then we went back to their house, had some wine, coffee, and cookies.. and watched the ball drop on Ryan’s iMac.  We were all too tired to do much else.  Ha, we’re big party animals, ya know!
