ringing in 2010...

For the first time since I have known my husband we will be actually stepping out into the land of the living on New Years Eve..........yes I know this is totally unheard of, we have been the king and queen of the quiet.... once quaint New Years Eve's.........

It all started about 6 years ago, the first time we rang in the new year together, when we did a big fancy dinner....surf and turf....and a romantic movie......I will admit, it has sort of gone down hill from there...not the company, just how grand the event has been.......one reason is because of my own little tradition consisting of, me... a bottle of red wine... and a big huge bag of plain Lay's potato chips, something that I don't let myself have any other time of the year...that's right a lays potato chip doesn't enter this body other than on New Years Eve...why you ask......well because I would weigh 500 pounds if I kept those lying around......yes just to give you a visual....... there have been occasions that "T" has sat down to a big gourmet swanky steak dinner and I have had a basket of Lays, some chip dip and a glass of wine in front of me..........and never been happier!!!! lol

So last week a friend and I were emailing back and forth and of course New Years Eve came up....you know the conversation........"what are you guy's doing"... "nothing what are you guy's doing".......so after a few emails back and forth we had decided that a group of us would go to Fellini's a great restaurant downtown........so fun.......about 5 couples.....lots of wine, some great Italian fair and some good laughs........now I must admit that before I checked the yes box...I did have a fleeting thought about Mr Lay....Frito Lay that is.....and the fact that we will not be having our usual rendezvous.......oh well better for my thighs I suppose....however sad all the same.......breaking tradition......I guess change is always good....right?????

I wish all my blogging friends the most wonderful New Year.......may all our hopes and dreams come true in 2010!!

You are hilarious about the Frito Lays. Can you imagine that I eat them EVERY day? Just at lunch mind you, but pretty much every single day. It's my addiction and I'd give anything to break it.
Enjoy your night.

Very cute tradition. :) I love chips and nachos A LOT, and have been known to have little binges from time to time, but I, like you, can't have them in the house normally.
Enjoy your evening, and here's to a bright and beautiful 2010!!! xo

I really like Fellini's. Enjoy!

You have amazing willpower! Once a year?! Wow! It won't kill you to buy them a handful of times a year ;)
