Sorry for the delayed post… it’s been a crazy day in Meghann World!
I was sooo excited to go out last night, it was my first time actually going out for New Years so I wanted to live it up the best I could!
Here were my 10 steps to a successful New Years Celebration:
Step 1: Start out with a Healthy Balance Meal before the crunkfest begins
I had Blacked Seared Tuna, Pecan Rice and Steamed Green Beans. I knew there would be a little drinking involved so I wanted to make sure I had a nice healthy meal in my stomach to start with.
Step 2: Eat Chocolate!
Step 3: Wear a Sparkley dress!
I LOVED wearing this dress last night! I got so many compliments on it last night, I want to wear it out every night!
Step 4: Meet up with Friends.
My Twin Bro and I met up at Caitlin’s before hand and rode down town with her Future Husband and Mother.
Step 5: Make New Friends
Many of Caitlin’s wedding party were in town and we all headed out. Even though I barely new any of them, they were very welcoming and I was so happy to bring in the New Year with all of them. All of the girls and guys were just as warm and welcoming as Caitlin, which makes for truly great friends.
Step 6: Drinks for everyone!
Let’s just say I had a quite a bit to drink last night.
You know it’s bad when I’m the one suggesting a round of shots….lol….
Step 7: A Midnight Kiss
Yes, I did get one. 🙂 Even though it was very quick and meant nothing I still got a kiss!
Step 8: Have a DD!
Caitlin’s wonderful Mom drove us back to Caitlin’s apartment where my brother and I crashed for the night.
Step 9: Thank God Burger King is closed at 2am!
The little fat girl inside of me was screaming for greasy Burger King last night. Thankfully it was closed otherwise I would have happily started off 2009 with a Whopper. When we got back to the apartment and everyone else pigged out, I decided the bed was calling my name louder then my stomach and I passed out before the fridge was even opened.
Step 10: Do Not Give Drunk Caitlin you Camera!
This is the last photo I have on my camera before the dropping incident.
Let me start by saying I had the WORST luck with cameras in 2008!
I got a beautiful brand new Nikon for my 23rd birthday back in February. Two weeks later there was a leak in my boyfriend’s apartment and the camera got a little shower and died. I did not have a warranty and was leaving for Ireland the next week, so my parents bought me another camera.
I went to Ireland, had a fabulous time and took a zillion photos. When I sat on the plane on the way back to America, I went to review all the photos and could not find my camera. Someone had stolen my camera in the Dublin airport!
I bought camera #3 with my own money a couple of days later. I purchased the warranty with that camera which came in handy when a few months later the camera died mysteriously out of no where! The Geek Squad were unable to revive the camera, which led me to camera #4!
Camera #4 bit the dust last night when it hit the brick! LUCKILY my warranty still covers the new camera so I shipped it off today for repair and in the meantime will be using my Mom’s gigantic camera. I don’t know what it is but cameras and me just did not get along in 2008. Hopefully 2009 will be a better year for that! 🙂
Surprisingly, I woke up at 7am this morning, WIDE AWAKE! I could not go back to sleep for the life of me. Caitlin must have heard me stirring because she woke up and had some toast and cantaloupe with me.
My brother and I left after that and met my parents at Universal.
All in all it was a great New Years, probably the best yet. I celebrated with great friends, in a great atmosphere with lots of future stories to tell. I did not want the night to end and would love to repeat it! I hope everyone else had a fabulous New Year and I wish everyone a happy and healthy 2009! 🙂
