Gutes Neues Jahr, Szczęśliwego Nowego Roku , Feliz año nuevo...

and a very Happy New Year....


Oh....Hasta La Vista 2008.....and luckily for you....I didn't send you packing with a swift kick in the ass like 2005 and 2006....I have to say...you were one of the best years so far...you introduced me to the very cool....uber hip Mr. Pooh....kept Juice safe on his trips to the Wild Brown Yonder...and brought his super sexy self back home for some much needed TLC....and allowed me to become a OMG can I say it...Stay At Home Mom....without me having heart palpatations from not being stuck in rush hour traffic...and dealing with buyers and customers alike....as well as keeping the monetary flow going....you can not imagine how happy I am that we are not one of the many who are putting a foreclosure sign up....I don't want to be one of THOSE Jones's....

So I drank an extra glass of champagne for you....and it had absolutely nothing to do with the fact that I'm a lush....nope....nothing....



And ate almost all of my most favorite dessert....of ALL Time....even the dogs were scared to come near me.....






Outta Control Dessert Recipe:

1 pkg Blueberries

1 pkg Blackberries

1 pkg Raspberries

1 pkg Creamcheese softened


1 jar Marshmellow fluff


Juice of one half lemon



Mix the Creamcheese, Marshmellow Fluff and lemon juice with mixer....till fluffy


Put a good amount of each fruit in wine or martini glasses...and top with dip.....sprinkle with sugar.....


Voila...




So Now...Welcome oh 2009.....so fresh and new....you still smell like the packaging you came in....(kind of smells like champagne)....hmmm....I think we are off to a pretty good start....Juices Family who missed his homecoming by 6 hours....making a surprise trip to spend New Years With us....(and no...that is not the reason for the extra glass for moi).....


But...can we have a little chat....as to WHY....I couldn't stay up to see you make your grand appearance...until the countdown when I was unceremoniously awoken by a blower in my ear....I'm OLD....well...not OLD....but old enough...and I'm a mom.....so....yeah....okay...whatever...


And I got to be a tour guide...sort of....by taking the fam to the BIG City....their first time...our oh...it's been a few....but this time....we actually got our pictures taken....Which...well lets just say I have a phobia of being a tourist....you know...the shorts with knee socks....with the camera plastered to your face....the WHOLE time....yeah....not so much....BUT....I have decided that this year.....since I don't have to go back to the corporate world....I want to smell the roses...AND take pictures of them.....

















I'm sure I'll need an interevention at some point....


So I've decided no Resolutions this year....we all know why...cause we all know what happens....they cease to exist after January 10th....and if we are hardcore...they may last to Valentines day...then all bets are off....so this year...I have New Years Goals....sounds better doesn't it....


To fit into my two Pair of Pre Baby Designer Jeans...cause I sure as hell ain't spending $160 on a pair now....

To actually finish decorating the house....I'm tired of being jealous of Martha....

To look smoking hot for Summer....I would really like to wear my new swimsuit WITHOUT a coverup on the whole time this year...

To really get out and explore this year.....get out of my comfort zone....



In conclusion...cause otherwise I"d talk all day....I've been going through withdrawls my peeps....2009 is gonna be TIGHT.....like my ass come July......that is all.....

That rocked! So glad 2008 was good for you, and I hope 2009 is even better!

I decided long ago to not worry about looking like a tourist even though I am one most of the time. I'm just going to take pics to my heart's content because I love taking pics.
