The Start of 2010

by Meghann on January 1, 2010

Happy New Year! And welcome to 2010!

I spent the last moments of 2009 ringing in the New Years with those I love the most.



(Mom and Dad didn’t even make it to 9:00)

We discovered CNN was reporting live from times square and were able to watch the ball drop with Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffen.


We rang in the New Year with all our east coast peeps (10:00pm local time) then all said our good nights. I mean technically since we are FROM the east coast it was like New Years to us anyways. πŸ˜‰

This morning I awoke to the lovely aroma of bacon frying on the stove top


and homemade biscuits baking in the oven.


Men hard at work in the kitchen


My plate


Homemade biscuit with grape jelly


scrambled eggs




and, of course, a piece of bacon


It was the perfect meal to start 2010


I <3 Snow!





We’re taking the day off from skiing and doing some tubing and ice skating today! Should be fun!

P.S. the worst part about going skiing/ tubing? Getting dressed! Ughh… I hate layering up in uncomfortable clothes!

Looks like an awesome start to the new year!

What is tubing?? To me, tubing means sitting in a tube and floating down a river, but I know that is not the case for you today! lol

Have a great time tubing, SO MUCH FUN. Hope y’all are getting some sun. I like that your dad is sporting a Breck. Brew shirt, awesome :)

Happy New Year Meghann! Have fun today! It’s cold here, not sure I’ll even go outside – it’s 8 degrees and feels like -6!

We watched kathy and anderson, too. Never know what you’re going to get with her! Lol

oh you made it! And is it just me or is that the weirdest duo ever . . . Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper?!?!?

Wow, that breakfast looks heavenly! There’s nothing better than the smell of bacon in the AM. Hope you guys have a great time skiing/tubing today, I’ve heard nothing but great things about the snow up there since we’ve been gone!

I’m definitely from up north — dressing in tons of warm layers is my favorite part of fall and winter!

happy new year meghann!! your family trips and holidays always look so fun and full of love and laughter :) and GOOD FOOD of course πŸ˜‰ i love that you never skimp on dessert hehe. 3 potatoes for 7 hangry skiers does seem a bit small considering there were a lot of guys haha


20 Emily January 1, 2010 at 3:21 pm

I’m with you on winter, we’ve saved money not going out this year becausee the thought of getting dressed was just too exhausting! :)



21 Vanessa (Last Night's Leftovers) January 1, 2010 at 4:57 pm

Happy New Year! Looks like 2010 is off to a great start for you. πŸ˜€

24 Heather (The Single Dish) January 1, 2010 at 8:40 pm

Happy New Year! 2010 is going to be great!


25 jenngirl January 1, 2010 at 10:00 pm

Gosh, I always forget that the west coast is a whole 2 hours behind us east coasters! I would have fallen asleep at 10pm too :)

Cozy, relaxed new year’s eves are my new favorite way to celebrate.
