Happy New Year's Eve

I am so ready to boot 2009 OUT the door! Buh- bye now.

I want to see what fun things 2010 has in store for us...

Tonight we'll meet up with my horse trainer and friend, Rex, her very German and curmudgeon-y husband, Glen, and my previous horse trainer, Rex's Mom - whom we fondly call "The General".

Furry Husband has some bubbly Prosecco chilled and ready for toasting (sorry France.. we're ringing in the new year with Italy's charming bubbles...) and then we all head to the local Wellington, CO restaurant, Beauregards... named after the owner's ancient yellow lab complete with a giant picture of Beau on one wall. (because truly it IS all about the ani-mules isn't it?)

There we eat, drink and make merry to ring in the new year.

I bring party favors. Last year I brought little 2009 strobe light pins and we all joked about how they were going to send people into seizing fits.

Maybe I won't do the strobe light pins this year?

I'll find something fun. We like to give away whatever I find to the hard working wait staff and other people we know and happen to see out and about...

Last year I think I actually made it to midnight... we'll see if I konk out before this year. I am ONE year older ya know... us morning person oldies need our sleep. ZZZZZZZZ

Be safe tonight in whatever adventures you'll be having - Happy New Year everyone!

We had prosecco last night too! Yum...

I barely made it past midnight myself- I think I fell asleep on the couch (yes, such a rockstar, I know) by 12:15. Woo!

Happy New Year!

Sounds like a really fun New Years. Hope you did the strobe light pins. Mine started out great (spend the day in the Metropolitan Museum of Art) then the rest of the evening and night bickering off and on with L. Cold and fatigue getting the best of us, I guess.

Presocco yum!!

I did make it to midnight... 1am in fact! And can I say Dick Clark looks bad. Really bad. Too much botox does not with a stroke mix.
