As has been the tradition over the past few years, I thought I’d document the day in time.  Also a big tradition around here, the BOY and I enjoying a quiet NYE night in with seafood and champagne (and Indiana basketball).



7:09AM-Alarm Goes Off…Hit Snooze


7:45AM-Hearty First Meal of Breakfast Stirfry




9:00AM-Work Day Begins


12:25PM-Still Working…


3:42-Arrive Home after a Snowy Drive




4:23PM-The BOY Takes a Nap

So does Cooper!




5:45PM-The BOY Wakes Up

Cooper does not!


6:15PM-Cooper Wakes Up (there is food involved)




6:35PM-We Watch the PreRecorded Indiana Basketball Game


7:45PM-Lobster Goes into the Oven (and wine is poured)


8:17PM-Dinner is Served!  This year’s menu includes, lobster, scallops, and broccoli

9:43PM-Let the (Wii) Games Begin

I actually beat the BOY in Mario Cart!


10:28PM-Turning on the TV and flipping through countdowns (because some of them were SO bad, we just couldn’t watch…Miley I might be talking about you!)




10:52PM-Cooper Gives Us the ‘Let’s Go to Bed Face’

11:38PM-Family Selfies are Taken!


11:57PM-The Champagne is Popped!

Yup…it’s those 2007 glasses again : )  8th year in a row!




At one point during dinner, the BOY and I went through and named all 8 of the NYE’s that we’ve spent together.  It really is a beautiful and fun tradition!





Happy Hump Day New Years!

  1. Love this!! Fun day!! That is so awesome that you are still using the same glasses since 2007!! What a great tradition!! Happy NYE!!!

  2. Happy New Year! Love the day, and love your tradition to recall the NYEs spent together!
    Scallops are hands down my favourite seafood. They look divine!
    I got let out of work early yesterday and took a three hour nap- oops!

  3. Happy New Year! Sounds like a great evening. You go girl (winning at Mario). I am so bad at those games! We have been using the Wii Fit a lot more lately.

    Perfect way to ring in 2014! And, lobster + scallops?! Even better :) happy new year, friend!

  5. Happy New Year, Jen!! Your night in looks fabulous. NYE sneaks up on me and I usually scramble for last minute plans. It’d be a lot less stressful if I took your lead and enjoyed the night at home (including lobster and scallops :))
