New Year's Celebrations


Happy New Year! I hope you had a great time celebrating. Whether you stayed up late, went out for some fun or went to bed at 9pm - however you celebrated, I hope you enjoyed bringing in 2014. 

After being gone over a week for the Christmas break Dave and I decided to stay home for NYE. We played games, watched movies, ate cookies, ate guacamole (not at the same time we ate cookies, ew!) cooked and of course took some fun pictures. I picked the above picture because I think Dave's smile looks like a million bucks in it and our cat was beyond agitated that he had to take a picture lots of pictures with us (which is funny to me). He couldn't even sit still so that is why he is blurry in it. Don't worry - he his happy now because I gave him treats. What better way to start the year for that big 18 lb. cat, eh?

Between NYE and NY day I tried 4 new recipes I found on Pinterest. I figured I need to start using all the wonderful things I pinned. I'm going to write a post soon and share the recipes I've tried that are simple and delicious. 

Dave and I also picked up some confetti poppers for NYE and Dave had to show his ID before he was allowed to purchase them. When we got home we read the label and it said you need 33ft. of space to shoot off all the confetti. We decided shooting that off in an apartment at midnight wasn't the best of ideas. So, today, Dave suggested walking to the woods near our house and having a confetti fight. Guys, it was so much fun! I never knew a confetti fight would be fun (or even existed). I think some of the best memories are the spontaneous and random ones. That 33ft. popper of confetti filled the trees with color and it was amazing! 


 confetti time!

How did you celebrate NYE? Did you go out? Stay home? Sleep? Hope it was great for you as you celebrated a new year that God has given to us. Blessings on you in 2014!!!

  8. I know, right? My husband kept debating about whether or not he should shoot it off. I had the whole scenario in my head of the cops coming ....

  13. I don't think that is stalking. I'm honored that you would come read about our lives. I hope you find the perfect person for you too. I can't honestly say I did much in pursuing Dave but God put him in my life and worked out miracle after miracle. Start praying now about your future husband and God will do wonders!


    Thanks again for stopping by and for reading our story.

  16. Visiting from Katie's blog and I thought I'd say hi! :) Looks like you guys had a wonderful NYE! So much fun! :) We went to a party with some of our friends and stayed until 11pm our time (midnight in NYC when the ball dropped on TV). We spent the last hour of 2013 together at our house and fell asleep just a little after midnight after the traditional NYE kiss. :)
