I did a post like this last year on NYE and thought it was a fun way to document the day!


8:00 AM- Wake Up and Breakfast while catching up with my BFF over the phone





9:30 AM- Finally feeling well enough to make it to Hot Yoga





11:11 AM- Post yoga Green Purple Smoothie





1:00 PM- Leftovers for Lunch





1:45 PM- Shopping Trip (leaving the BOY at home happily watching Big Ten Basketball)





3:35 PM- Return Home 35 Minutes after the start of the Indiana Game

Guess where the BOY is?  Exactly where I left him!





3:52 PM- Half Time!

Grandma’s Brownies (recipe to come) go into the oven




5:06 PM- Indiana Wins!


5:07 PM- We Nap!


7:00 PM- Awake…the BOY comes to inspect dessert as I get the tunes bumping!

Yes, I dance alone in the kitchen while working on the stuffed mushrooms





7:45 PM- The BOY googles how to steam lobster


7:49 PM- We meet the lobster!





8:14 PM- The lobster and crab go into the pot and the BOY joins me in dancing





8:26 PM- We sit down to eat dinner





9:30 PM- Let the games begin!





10:26PM- I go PRO in Wii bowling earning a new pink shiny ball!





10:42PM- Turn on the NYC count down and dig into the brownies…yum!





11:36PM- The mocking of the Chicago Countdown begins (much laughter follows)

Awesome city, but a terrible countdown!





11:40 PM- We switch to Fox for the Las Vegas Countdown…much better!


11:48- The champagne is poured!





12:02 AM- Happy 2013!

This is the BOY and my 7th NYE together and we always bust out these glasses on New Years!





Wishing everyone a happy and healthy new year!

  1. What a fun day!! The lobster is making my mouth water! 🙂

    We had a low-key NYE–grabbed some sushi and brought it home to eat with a few side dishes. Then we watched the Dick Clark tribute countdown while sipping on some margaritas. Aaaaannd, I was in bed at 10 pm. Yeah. I’m old–couldn’t cut it. But that’s okay–I’m hosting a good luck dinner tonight, so I have lots to do today!

  2. My “boy” read this over my shoulder. He is not too happy with you since I am now insisting that we have to find some lobster tails to steam. It looks yummy in the picture. Happy New Year!

    • Ha ha! That is too funny! We picked them up at Costco and have a little homemade connection to steam them (although I suggested grilling the lobster). It wasn’t pretty but it worked out well, and the crab legs were the most flavorful I’ve ever tasted!

    • What did you think?
      You can tell that picture was taken after the class. Since I’ve been sick, it was super tough but I’m so happy that I went. It was a great way to start the day. I love yoga!!!

  3. What a fun last day of 2012! Love that you documented it with pictures! Any day filled with hot yoga, lobster and my boy would be fabulous, too 🙂

    • Please help me in tennis! I suck sooo bad and will take any tips that you have! The BOY deserves some better competition. Luckily I can beat him bowling, so it’s a little more fair : )
