I still have stories & pictures from my holiday in Georgia to report, but that will come tomorrow . . . today, I want to talk about New Year's*! What did everyone do?? I have to admit that seeing everyone's pictures of glittery outfits and fingernails sorta made me want to go out on the town, but my instincts (and meager, post-Christmas bank account) took over and we (me, Matt, roomie Jen, & two friends) had an awesome, champagne-soaked, uproarious night in. See below:

Our evening involved vegan chili, beer bread, lots and lots of sparkling red wine and champagne, hilarious board games (my current faves: Loaded Questions and Say Anything), and end-of-the-night karaoke. And I wouldn't have had it any other way. :)
As for resolutions . . . I've learned (the hard way) that setting year-long goals isn't exactly for me. Ha! Last year, I saw that some bloggers were setting month-long goals, which seems waaaaaay more feasible to me, so that's what I'm doing this time around. My goals aren't exactly overly ambitious, but I think they're conquerable. The first one, however, is depressing.
January 2012 Goals:
1. no cheese
2. clean & organize closet
bonus: clean & organize car
And that, my friends, is it. Trust that abstaining from cheese for an excruciating 31 days will be hard enough! What are your goals?
see you in February . . . in lesser quantities
p.s. Did you have your black eyed peas and collard greens on New Year's Day? Gotta get that luck & money!
*Matt: I believe that New Year's, with a possessive apostrophe, uses the correct grammar, as there is an implied "Eve" after "Year's" that belongs to the preceding "New Year's." ;)
