This evening we met Stephanie, Mike, and their two kids Stephen and Emma for dinner in Chippewa at this Mexican restaurant called El Paso. I was so excited to see them. It has been so long since we hung out. I want to say since March, when it was Mike’s birthday!
El Paso was good, but I think Plaza Azteca is better. I had the fajita burrito. I could only eat half. I was so full.
After dinner, we stopped back at our house, got changed and into some comfy clothes. I put on some glitter sweats and top with a sweater. It was mild outside. When we arrived at Mike and Stephanie’s I put my Truly Rose Seltzer water. I also brought a bottle of champagne.
We watched a New Year’s countdown for the kids. They are like 5 mins long and they each end with the countdown. It was cute. They went to sleep and the adults partied. We found a stream of the New Years special with Ryan Seacrest. We played crabs adjust humidity a card game like cards against humanity but worse!
Once the ball dropped, 4 of us drank 3 bottles of champagne. Drew was the designated drive. We toasted to 2019 with some awesome friends and great pictures.
This afternoon I did some cooking and cleaning. We got the house ready for Anthony and Dylan to come over. At about 6:30pm, I got a text that said we are on our way over. Dylan last told me 7:30pm. Okay, no problem, right? I instantly felt so rushed. Thankfully I had the kielbasa and sauerkraut in the crockpot already, along with the pork tenderloins and the sauerkraut. I put out the snacks. Drew helped the entire time, which I was glad about.
Once they arrived, they brought more snacks, and games. They decorated the snack table. The dinner table was already set. I brought out my wedding china. I was excited to be able to use it again. When dinner was ready, we sat down at the table and said a prayer. Then we ate. Everything turned out amazing. I was so proud of us. Drew and I make quite a team.
After dinner, I cleaned up, and then we went into the living room to drink some wine and play games. We watched Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Years Eve. We patiently waited for Britney Spears to perform. Her last performance in Vegas was taking place tonight. They were going to broadcast live from Planet Hollywood. She was going to perform Toxic and Work Bitch.
When Britney came on, she first performed Work Bitch. She has aged a bit, but she still has it. I love her. Anthony, Dylan, and I were screaming. Anthony snap chatted. Then Mariah Carey performed. She redeemed herself last year. Except she complained about not being able to have hot tea, so she was going to do the best she could without it. Anthony and I cracked up laughing. She is always complaining.
After the ball dropped, Andrew and I kissed and opened champagne. Anthony set off this giant confetti tube. He always knows how to get in the spirit. It was fun. I am so glad we got to ring in the New Year with them.
When we woke up, we went to the gym, and got a little work out in, then I came home, and did some more laundry. We made a nice dinner, and had a few drank together. We had a great New Year’s Eve, but I was so hormonal.
On top of the fact, that New Year’s Eve, makes me uneasy already. It always has. In the blink of the moment, 2016 will be over, and it will be on to another year, whether we are ready for it or not. I hate not knowing what is around the corner, but I was ready for 2017..sort of?
