Happy, HAPPY New Year!

2006 went out with a BANG.....literally! While driving to our friend's house for their New Year's Eve party, we had thunderstorms! THUNDERSTORMS! In Michigan in December! Talk about some wacky weather we've been having lately! And here I thought I only had to worry about thunderstorms in the summer! WRONG!

We had a GREAT time at the party! Played cards, ate, laughed, ate, toasted at midnight & ate some more :) I made over 200 Jello Shots & sadly, I still have over 100 left.....anyone want some? :) I also took a Peanut Butter Pie like the one pictured above.......LOVE these things! So creamy & yummy & extremely fattening! Oh well, time to make yet another new year's resolution to lose some weight :(

We left the party around 3:30 a.m. & took our time driving home since we knew there would be drunk drivers on the roads. I wasn't drunk, though.....I'm not really much of a drinker anyway & when I do drink, I never get drunk. Even with all the jello shots I ate, I still didn't get drunk :) We were sad to see the party end, but we knew we had to get home so that we could get some sleep before we had to pick Cassie up on New Year's Day.

Now it's time to get back into our routines, which is always hard to do at first after the holidays. The Christmas Tree is already down & most of the decorations are put away.....still have to take the stockings down off the staircase which I'll be doing today. Jim had to go back to work today & it was hard to wake up without him next to me this morning :( I got spoiled while he was home! And so did he! We would stay up till 1 or 2 in the morning & then sleep in until the dogs woke us up needing to go out. Cassie goes back to school tomorrow, but she's glad that she has an extra day off.

I'm hoping to start a new 'business' of sorts in the next few weeks. Once I get all the details worked out, I'll be sure to let you know.

Hope you have a fantastic New Year,
