I feel like the blogworld is exploding with glitter and party dresses and stories of how they spent their NYE, I'm just here... at work, with greasy hair and slippers on my feet. A lovely image, I know! This blog has been neglected lately, and even today I didn't feel like I had much to say but I still just felt like writing. It's amazing how much this blog has become part of my life and how a little part of me is missing when I can't post and read blogs. I want things to slow down, but then again, I don't want football season to end for another month... so I'm in a weird emotional state I'm right now that you'll just have to excuse.
New Year's Eve we went to dinner at our favorite Japanese steakhouse with my parents. A tradition that has been going on for over twenty years now in our family! It was nice to try to escape the football world for just an hour or two and enjoy some time with Jared and my parents. Although, our chef kept yelling "WHODEY" throughout the meal -LOL! I just can't get away from it, I guess!
Jared and I spent the last few hours of 2013 with our favorite winter candle lit and a puzzle out on the table. A puzzle that has been neglected again, because of football season, but we are finally almost done with it. We enjoyed good music, some late night snacks and just good conversation about what's in store for this coming year. All in our most comfy pajamas and my slippers that now seem to permanently be attached to my feet.
It was the most low-key NYE celebration we've had in a long while, and although it felt strange to not be making plans with all of our best buds, we really enjoyed that quiet time together. The hustle and bustle of holidays and football has been eating up a huge chunk of our lives, so any downtime is appreciated.
So here's to January, 2014. Whatever chaos it may bring!! And soaking in any downtime we can grab onto!
