Goodbye cruel 2016, and hello marvelous, brand new 2017!
I hope everybody had a wonderful night ringing in the new year.
While I assume most of you were out with friends or family, I chose to spend it at home with my boy, taking ridiculous selfies and trying to stay awake until midnight.
I think the plan to stay in this year was made a few weeks ago.
Both of us aren’t the “party” type; we enjoy a quiet night in with Netflix or crocheting/blogging for me and video games for him. We probably saved a ton of money staying in, too.
Bars and clubs are always so crowded and overpriced.
$25 cover just because it’s December 31st? Gross.
I bought a $15 bottle of prosecco – partially because it was cheap, partially because the bottle was blue and pretty.
I’m not the biggest fan of champagne/prosecco, but it was pretty tasty. I just wanted to have the tradition of popping a cork at midnight. The cork on this bottle flew outta my hand, too. Almost broke a poster frame – happy new year, huh?
We ordered Chinese food for dinner, grabbed some snacks from the corner store and played some Grand Theft Auto V on the brand new XBox One.
We tuned into Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve (or whatever it’s called) for the ball drop, and it wasn’t long before…
Three, two, one..
Happy New Year!
Honestly, I wouldn’t have brought in the new year any other way.
It was simple and I didn’t have to bump elbows with people I don’t really know. There was no need to dress up; I stayed in PJ’s the whole time. My liver thanked me for not drinking my face off, and today will actually be somewhat productive knowing that I didn’t wake up hungover and hating my life. We’ve got leftovers for dinner, and I’ve already brewed two pots of coffee to keep us going considering we went to bed pretty late.
2017 is going to be a good year, I can feel it.
I have high hopes for 2017. I probably said the same thing about 2016, but.. well, we all know how that turned out.
Anyway, from me to every single one of you, Happy New Year!
Oh yeah, Bob Saget also wishes you all a Happy New Year!
And if you’re wondering, that’s a gold Superman action figure he’s knocked down; I don’t think he likes him very much. Silver Batman and bronze Wonder Woman are okay in his books.
Happy new year, friends and family!
All the best in 2017!
hugs and kisses,
