HAPPY 2009!!!!

January 1, 2009

We were at a friend’s house last night for some obligatory champagne and good (and by good, I mean dirty and inappropriate) conversation, when everyone (but me) had a shot of tequila.  The toast was “to Jeff and Kerry’s little boys!” and while they were all shooting the delicious agave liquor, and I was holding the hostess’s 9 week old little boy (he didn’t want any tequila either), I couldn’t help but think about how different our lives would be this year.

In a little over three months (fingers crossed), we will be PARENTS to TWO BABY BOYS.  We won’t be the carefree, social butterflies whose weekends were always booked with parties and things to do – we will be the super busy, super tired “party of four” who after sooooo much heartache and sooooo much patience, are FINALLY getting what they want, need, and deserve.

This New Year’s Eve was most definitely different than the last 7 NYE celebrations Jeff and I have had together.  There was no driving around aimlessly, trying to find something to do when we got denied from a bar downtown because they were “at capacity” (our first NYE in 2001).  There was no drunken hanky panky in the downstairs bathroom and passing out in a random spare bedroom (like the last two NYE’s).  Instead, we had a really nice dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant, where I enjoyed sharing a glass of a really smooth Sangiovese (while trying to ignore the unapproving glares of several patrons) with my husband.  After dinner, we went to our friend’s house to celebrate with a small group of friends, and we were home by a little bit before 1:30, which is still SUPER late for this girl.

It was perfect.

And I just have to say, once again, that I cannot WAIT for what 2009 has in store for Jeff and I – and I hope that the rest of our readers, friends, and family have a fantastic new year as well!

    2009 is your year! I’m impressed you lasted until 1:30! lol..I was asleep on the couch at 9:45…my poor sweet husband, but with a house full of in-laws for the last week I was wiped out. Cheers to an adventure filled new year with more laughter than you can possibly imagine.
