Happy New Year everyone! This one is one for the books. Great friends, great food and booze, I mean what else is there to ask for. This is the first year that I have not been with my high school friends, I thought it was going to be weird, but it was great. Ames is full of surprises though. No power (for about an hour), ice everywhere and fantastic mudslides.
The night started out a little rough, when Jake couldn't tell time. Thanks for making me carry down part of your dinner alone, in heals and from the third floor. It was good times. Then getting 2 Four Locos later Jake was another fun task that I completed before going out to Julianne's. I have never had a Four Loco, but I am pretty sure starting the night out with 2 was a rock star choice. Dinner and mudslides were to follow. Ahh what a great decision. Middle of King's Cup, power goes bye bye. We all pack up and head to Weemsy's, as Jake calls him. Pretty sure that is the point of the evening when the limes went flying. Thus the start of an even better evening. As the night progressed, beers were drank, wine was finished and Andre (can't be New Year's without it) was popped. Shots were taken and more limes were scattered about. I am pretty sure this is why when I got out of bed in the morning I stepped on one, whatever it was New Year's.
The high point of the evening was taking to Jake's mom. Great times, but Jake we are still waiting on those peanut clusters. Don't make me call your mom and tell her they never made the party. Or it could have been just having his phone all night. Sorry if it got you in trouble, but we do these things out of love.
The low point to New Year's was working on the 1st. I am sorry, it is not my fault that Christmas vomited all over Aunt Maude's. First week there and I had to clean the over abundance of Christmas decorations with people I had never met. And let's not even talk about the white elephant gift exchange. You know, bring random things that you no longer want, or things that are to be joke gifts. No no no, not how that goes at Maude's, I guess I didn't get the memo that I was to bring, let me see here a bottle of Grey Goose, Twilight board games, wine, shot glass sets and who knows what else kinds of gifts. I don't know where you all grew up, but where I come from you bring the shit that you don't want anymore. I must add though, I enjoyed the dino that I brought to the party. I thought he was pretty fun.
New Year's is over and the resolutions have started. This year I am going to save money, I need to be able to get an apartment and furnish it when I become a big girl and graduate in May, do things for me and oh yeah the ever popular, lose weight and get healthy, however I am not big on this whole thing that everyone calls exercise, so I guess I will just have to see how that one goes. That's all for now. Happy New Year once again and let this be a great 2011!!!
