NYE PLans?

Was this posted already?

What are your NYE and NYD plans?

For the first time in like 20 years, I have no plans tonight.  We're just going to sit at home, drinking champagne.

Tomorrow, we're going to start the "great cleaning of 2010" in our mess of a house.  I swear, we must have 30 loads of laundry to do...!

Re: NYE PLans?

  • we are having dinner with friends at Brabo in Old Town. there are fireworks over the masonic temple in alexandria and tomas <3 s fireworks, so we are debating whether to wake him up and take him to see them. otherwise, we'll just toast at home. and then i'll probably pass out, since midnight is like 2 whole hours past my usefullness time!

  • Tomorrow is DD's 3rd birthday (sniff sniff) so tonight after she's in bed we'll cook a nice dinner and then start cleaning for her birthday party tomorrow. 

  • We'll be having tacos for dinner tonight and we're having 5 house guests. Then tomorrow I'm taking them to NYC and I might take the girls to the Today Show, so they can get on TV and wave furiously at their friends and family.

  • Tonight we are going over our pastor's apt. for a party/game night. Should be pretty low key, which is fine, but I wish they drank! (I'm just assuming they don't, and don't have the nerve to bring a bottle of bubbly). Tom. we are just staying home, and I'm making a nice pork tenderloin meal with glazed apple rings. And I will be drinking to make up for my soberness tonight! Big Smile
  • BIL and SIL are having a party so we're going over there tonight. I've been super sleepy this week, so I'm afraid I might have trouble staying up until midnight!

    Tomorrow will be lots of football watching at home. Most importantly is the Penn State game at 1. We invited friends over but nobody has said for sure if they're coming yet, so it might just be us. We might make a beer run in the late morning as well. Tough day planned!

  • Tonight we're repeating a few year old tradition and going to our next door neighbor's (they are also good friends) house for dinner and low key company.

    New year's day we have a tradition with a group of DH's friends from college/former roommates of "New Year's Steak".... we get the gang together and hit up an Outback. Still need to figure out which one we are going to based on when they open which was supposed to be DH's chore but now I guess I'm doing it since he's ignored that all week!

  • Pretty much the same as crazy.  We'll be drinking champagne at home, and then cleaning/packing tomorrow.

    I'll just throw it out there b/c it has made my life so much easier.... you can get your laundry cleaned, dried, and folded (FOLDED!!! Big Smile)  for less than $1/lb.  When I take a heaping laundry basket, it's usually around 17lbs.  It's a great way to tackle a bunch of laundry.

    Wow--she'll be 3?  How time flies!  Happy birthday E!

  • Today is Ben's birthday, he is two! No celebrating though - we did that Sunday with the family. 

    Tonight is the CFA bowl so my husband will be glued to the TV for those Hokies.

    Tomorrow is the PSU/LSU game and the battle of the cats. lol

  • As of this moment, absolutely nothing. 

    DH's cousin is here, he came out for the holidays so their grandma would have someone to travel with her (she won't fly alone, she's 90, who can blame her?).  The cousin has been basically stuck with the older generation the whole time, since he doesn't have a car, and we were away in NC for a few days.  Anyway, we kind of feel sorry for him, and he mentioned he'd like to go out tonight.  I'm not sure I'm up for a night of big crowds and loud music, so if they decide to go, I will probably stay home by myself.  

    As for tomorrow, again, no specific plans.  I always like to watch the Rose Bowl parade on HGTV, since it's commercial-free and they talk a lot about the plants (yes, I'm a dork Geeked).  DH will surely want to watch football, but I have no idea what games.

  • We're having steak and champagne (well, prosecco, actually) after C is tucked in. I'm super tired and getting over a cold, so I hope I make it till 10 pm at least.

  • We're having a party at our house for about 15-20 friends. If anyone doesn't have plans and wants to come, let me know!

    Tomorrow I plan on sleeping in, cleaning up from the party, and catching up on Netflix.  DH is heading to DE for the weekend once we finish cleaning up, and I am kind of looking forward to having the house to myself for a few days.

  • Steak and crabcakes and crazy-expensive beer and movies at home. We're old and boring, but we've done this the last couple of years and it's always been fun.

  • Nothing, and probably not making it until midnight, though I will try!  DH texted some friends to see if they're doing anything and if not, if they want to come over, but I'm kinda hoping to be headed to L&D :)  J and my mom have 4 day weekends, and I don't want to work on Monday, even if it is from my couch.
  • I forgot to add my plans...

    stopping at TJs for frozen apps for a night in.  It's too cold, and I'm too old ;-)

  • Tonight we'll be at a friends place in bethesda

     

    Tomorrow we have a wedding. I dont like spending a holiday at a wedding.  

  • Tonight- home, b/c we're old.

    Tommorrow- cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning.

  • Happy New Year everyone!

    DH and I are going to dinner at Co Co Sala and then heading home to watch the ball drop from the couch.

    This is a big departure for us - for the past 10+ years, my good friend from college and her DH have held the NYE party.  But this year far too many of my pals have young babies to make it to midnight, so we changed the party to brunch tomorrow.  We're not going to know what to do with ourselves tonight!!

  • We are having friends over for a low-key hang out time.  We are making a Bacon Explosion.  Clog those arteries for 2010!

  • We're going over to a friend's place for a potluck tonight. It's only 8 people going. Guess who got roped into making the main dish? That's right, this girl. Thank goodness for an early dismissal today.

  • We're seeing a movie with my family this afternoon. Tonight we were supposed to go to a friend's cocktail party, but friend's roommate basically turned the small, classy gathering into a frat party so she doesn't even want to be in the house. We invited her over for dinner and to stay the night and we're hoping she takes us up on our offer. ?Either way, we have a low-key evening planned. Making lasagna for dinner, pop open a bottle of vino and ring in 2010. :)

    Tomorrow I'm meeting friends for lunch, and double dating with dinner/movie or bowling.?

  • We are having a few people over (10ish) for the Virginia Tech game....wings, beer, and a champagne toast at midnight.
  • we were supposed to have several friends over for dinner but DH got hit with the flu in the middle of the night. He feels terrible so dinner has been cancelled. So, I think it is going to be a very quiet day/evening around here.

    What in the world is this?  I may need it.

    My DH is traveling (still) so I'll be ringing in the New Year an hour earlier than him, at home, with my fairthful companion, Kiah Jane.  I do have a nice beef roulade to cook and plenty of champagne to keep me company. 

    Tomorrow I'll be helping SSW celebrate her birthday Party!!! We are thinking about hitting Union Jack's in Bethesda at some point in the afternoon/evening --- if anyone is looking for a little hair of the dog, feel free to come and celebrate with us... the more the merrier!!

    Happy New Year & best wishes for amazing things to come in 2010!!!

  • I still don't know what we're doing. We might meet up with some friends at a bar in Manassas or stay home. It all depends on how my ear is doing. Tomorrow I'll be glued to the TV for the Rose Parade and then at 4:30 for the Rose Bowl. Go Bucks!

  • We're heading to a friend of a friend's house to watch the Tech bowl game and eat Chick-Fil-A. Surely drinking will ensue ... we're planning to spend the night. Very low-key, but with enjoyable friends. Yay!
