Ringing in 2015

Happy New Year!

Crazy how another year has come and gone, and we are now in 2015. I remember celebrating the year 2000 very clearly, it's hard to believe it was so long ago!

Wednesday morning Harry and I went to a Noon Year's Eve party at our park district. Another great event! I was really impressed with how smoothly it all ran and there were more than enough staff members helping, which was really appreciated.

We made two crafts (both noise makers), played a game of BINGO, had a little dance party, ate a snack, and just before noon we did a big countdown complete with a balloon drop.

M&Ms were our BINGO pieces and he didn't eat a single one! Surprise of the year :)




We had a nice time! And it was great to get out of the house during the day, Harry's been missing school so much during Christmas break!

We didn't do much to celebrate the actual new year... we did the Netflix kid's countdown after dinner and then after Harry went to sleep Ant and I watched Gone Girl on DVD (one of this year's screeners for being in the Writer's Guild). That was a crazy movie! I haven't read the book, so I can't compare, but I think I liked it. It was definitely captivating, but I'm not so sure about the ending.

We switched the movie off halfway through to watch the midnight countdown and enjoy a glass of champagne.

I'm looking forward to this year! I sense some good things coming (knock on wood). As far as resolutions go? Wear makeup more often- I hate looking so sloppy all the time- and do Swagbucks more! I was really good with the site in 2013 and totally slacked last year. It's really worth it IMO! Plus the usual eat healthier, work out more, etc. ;)

  1. Happy New Year! Looks like you all had fun. I watched that movie last night. Yeah, I am not sure about that ending, and I did not read the book either. I kinda liked the movie though as it was different.
