My Perfect New Years Eve

This blog and my LIFE LIST are about creating my personal idea of my perfect life, so I thought it would be a good idea to add MY PERFECT HOLIDAYS. I have never had a good New Year’s Eve and I’ve always desperately wanted one! This year will be no different than last year, I will be watching Andy Cohen’s ‘Watch what happens live New Year’s party’ being terribly jealous of everyone who is out at the bar and parties while my husband is at work and the little one is asleep. So these are some of the components to what I think would make for a fabulous New Year’s Eve! Hopefully next year will be my year! 
Happy New Year everyone- have a wonderful evening!

Have to get a limo-NO DUI'S!!

New Year's Eve Toasts

"Stir the eggnog, lift the toddy-Happy New Year everybody!"

"Another year is dawning, let it be-for better or worse, another year with thee."

"As we start the New Year, let's get down on our knees, to thank God we're on our feet."


"Here's to the bright New Year, and a fond farewell to the old; here's to the things that are yet to come and to the memories that we hold."

"May the New Year help to make us old."

"May the best of this year be the worst of next."

"The object of the new year, is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul."

"Then sing, young hearts that are full of cheer, with never a thought of sorrow; the old goes out but the glad young year comes merrily in tomorrow."

"He who breaks a resolution is a weakling. He who makes one is a fool."

"Here's to a long life and a merry one
-a quick death and an easy one-
-a pretty girl and an honest one-
-a cold beer and another one."

"As you slide down the banisters of life, may the splinters never point the wrong way."

Holidays at Home 2011

Here are some highlights from how we celebrated Christmas in Michigan, we actually went to Maryland for the Holiday and spent Christmas Day in Washington D.C.

Much better than Thanksgiving 2010

O my gosh, Mom never lets me play with this kind of stuff!
Sorry I forgot to get you buy yourself something nice.
It's not wrapped but let's see what we got anyways...
Gotta own up to my "best hugger" title!
Let's get to know each other better.

My sister's 24th Birthday 12.27.11
She went nuts for her new coat.
Now I know why my Mom loves Christmas so much-it's invigorating. 

The term 'decorating the tree' means to 'put the ornaments ON the tree NOT take them off---apparently something got lost in translation.

My Sister's Birthday

Today is my little Sister’s 24th Birthday, so I wanted to post some of these pictures of us through the years. I know this itself has nothing to do with my actual LIFE LIST but my LIST is about celebrating life and being better.  So as we celebrate her today I am also making it a goal to become much closer to Helena, I haven’t been the best big sister or the best role model but I am going to make an effort to be better from now on. I am sorry to you dear little sister from another mister for all my bitchy moments, dirty looks and judgmental words. We will always drive each other nuts given the nature of our relationship but maybe now we can do it with more grace. I know this year will be amazing for you, I love you and cannot wait for tonight…it’s going to get wild.
