Last night I reigned in 2011 the way it was meant to be reigned in – surrounded by close friends and family drinking champagne.
Lots and lots of champagne. 😉
Up until two days ago I had zero plans for New Years. Derek and I were playing it by ear on what everyone else was doing. Turns out no one else had plans either. Kelly and I were texting back and forth on whether we wanted to go out or not, but upon discovering cover charges for the 31st went anywhere from $25 to $60 dollars (not including parking and drinks), a house party seemed a little more economical.
Kelly took the lead role and offered up her and Anthony’s place for the party festivities. She rocks.
She also offered to feed Derek and I. Thanks again Kelly and Anthony!
Our friend Amber brought the chips and dip.
And we feasted on roasted potatoes, salads, and delicious kebabs that Anthony had grilled for the group.
Kebabs are so delicious and so easy to do. I’m not sure why I never make them at home? Definitely a crowd pleaser!
Dessert came in the form of cake.
And MegaNerd Snicker Doodles.
Oh, and more champagne.
Did I mention the champagne? 😉
Just before midnight we all settled around the TV and counted down with Dick Clark.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
Get ready 2011… it’s going to be one hell of a ride! 🙂
How did you celebrate the start of 2011?
