Cheers to a New Year

At 10am I started my NYE day with a solo cup of wine while doing the dishes.  Do you know how much wine actually fits in a solo cup?  It’s a lot.  I later would regret this decision.  A group of friends and I were going to a Purdue vs. Ohio State game, which is about an hour and a half away so I wanted to pregame before the game.  Had I known we were going to be in the nose bleed section I probably would have passed on the whole thing all together but oh well.  It still ended up being a fun time even though Purdue lost.  I have become a Purdue fan because the bf went to school there and it just makes me feel more like a Hoosier. 

It wasn’t until the ride home that the wine had started to hit my brain with a giant pounding.  I was not pleased.  My mistake in all this was not continuing drinking but because hours had passed and the headache had already formed it was too late.  So I spend the remaining of the ride fast asleep in the backseat. 

Philly couldn’t make it to the game because he had to work.  So when I got home he was ready to start the NYE.  All I could think was why are the lights on and shhhhhh.  I crawled into bed with an ice pack on my head and went back to sleep.  Headaches ruin lives!  The bf went off to the party while I slept away my headache. 

I woke up about an hour later, got dressed, put on some makeup and felt like a million bucks.  The bf came back to get me and we headed over to a friend’s house, which is right down the street.  It was a perfect NYE with friends.  We played some board games, Ticket To Ride to be exact which is my all time fav, ate a lot, drank Champaign, and danced the night away.  Really it couldn’t have been better.  No it wasn’t some crazy Chicago or Times Square NYE but I’m not about that sort of thing these days.  I enjoy the simple things and laughing with friends at home.

The best part was kissing my man at midnight!  Go ahead and barf.  But it just all seams symbolic and I wouldn’t have wanted to spend the first minute of 2014 any other way.  I have a feeling that this year is going to bring many great things and lots of changes.  Cheers to everyone and lets all have a kickass 2014!
