We had a great time ringing in the New Year!! we changed our plans about 40 bazillion times before we finally figured out what we were going to do... go downtown, just the two of us. eat a fun/nice dinner and then head over to whatever bar we felt like, watch the rest of the Chicfila Bowl and then ring in the new year. That's exactly what we did.
We drove downtown having no clue where we were going to go. Just one look at the new Ale house and matt wanted to eat there. (We used to go to original Carolina Ale House in Raleigh all the time and we loved it, and have been so excited about Greenville getting one.) We walked in to a packed house and they said it'd be a 2 hour wait for a table and we were starving! So we went across the street and up the block a little to Takosushi which I have been wanting Matt to try for a while, because I ate there with Cindy and I knew matt would love it! We walked right in and had a seat immediately and the food was delicious!! Matt got The Crazy Roll and I got the baha fish taco plate. They are SO SO good!!!! So here's Matt at takosushi ..
Then we went back to Ale House and waited in line for about 15 minutes before finally making it upstairs. It was so fun. We scrounged up a table and happened to run into Devon and Michael so they sat with us, then Jordan, Samantha, and Brooks showed up. We just sat at our table, talking, watching New Years Eve in New York, and laughing. Before we knew it, people were counting down!! Happppppppppy New Year!!! Our first picture together in 2011...
We stayed for a while, still talking, and then I found this hat...
haha. We headed home to get in bed because we had to be up pretty early the next morning to head to my Nanny's house in Summerville, GA. We got to my mom's and loaded up the car with luggage and presents and SEVEN people in one tahoe. Trav, Mom, Matt, Me, Janey, Tyler, and Lindsey all piled into the Tahoe and were on our way to GA. We were even crazy enough to stop at Starbucks in Commerece and EVERYONE in the car got a drink... might at add they were all caffeinated (except for mine) and it was a very eventful car ride, to say they least! :) WE made it to Nanny's and had a WONDERFUL christmas dinner.... Ham, creamed corn, green beans, mashed potatoes, crockpot mac n cheese, dressing, collard greens, black eyed peas, biscuits, and rolls. my mouth is watering just thinking of it. Matt and I made sure to load up on collards for money and black eyed peas for luck and we were stuffed!!! We opened some presents and went back to the other house to play Trivial Pursuit steal! fun game.
Sunday morning we woke up and went back over to Nanny's for a huge breakfast. So yummy! Hung out for a while, and headed back home.
It was a very fun and eventful way to bring in the new year and i am so excited for all of the changes 2011 is going to bring!
I start with my personal trainer today at pivotal. yikes!! but i am going to get in shape. I have a meeting with the nutritionist tomorrow and I've only got one more medication to wean off of.
Basically, i hope to be a complaint-free, medicine-free, fat-free person by the end of this year!! :)
