What Are You Doing For NYE?

Thursday, December 31, 2009

What I won't be doing is:
  1. Getting dressed up (to be honest I am already in my PJs and it's only 3:30pm).
  2. Wearing any type of high heel.
  3. Leaving the house.
  4. Standing outside in any line.
  5. Freezing my butt off in the snow.
  6. Watching the clock strike midnight.
  7. Watching Dick Clark (is he still alive?)
  8. Waking up tomorrow with a massive hangover.

What I will be doing is the exact same thing I have done almost every year for the past decade:
  1. Snuggle up with my little man in our PJs.
  2. Have a New Year's toast (his sippy and mom's champagne) at about 7:30pm.
  3. Have a nice relaxing dinner with my hubby (spicy shrimp and white bean stew, asparagus, and arugula salad.)
  4. Watch something that we have been saving on the DVR (this year it will likely be a 30 Rock marathon)
  5. Drink one too many glasses of champagne.
  6. Be in bed by 10 at the latest.
  7. Wake up tomorrow sans hangover and hit up a 12:00 yoga class with my favorite yoga instructor.
For me this is the perfect New Year's Eve! Whatever your plans are I hope all of you have a happy and SAFE evening! For those of you who are going to be out hitting the town, I salute you. Please have a drink for me!

See you all in 2010... I have a feeling this is going to be one great decade!

No alcohol, because I'm pregnant.

No kissing, because I am enduring 24/7 morning sickness.

And no Dick Clark, because Ryan Seacrest (brrrr!) is has assumed co-hosting duties.

So, a glass of lemonade, and a DVD copy of Planes, Trains and Automobiles for me. Perfect. :-)

Oh, the dinner sounds great! Where is the white bean and shrimp recipe from?

Adrienne: I posted it on the blog here:


It is super easy and delish!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year. We celebrated by attending the wedding of the most perfectly suited couple you could ever meet. So lovely to spend NYE this way.

Happy New Year to you! May this year bring all you have dreamed of. Sounds like you started it off on a great note! Dick Clark is still alive and was on ABC last night for a brief couple shots. He had a stroke years back (I think) and is still struggling with his speech. Anyway, I still need to watch.

Happy New Year to you and your family.

Happy New Year! And FYI, I did 1-8 on your list of what you were not going to do. Can barely type with the hangover. Except I watched the ball drop with Snooki on MTV(although I do not remember it)
