After a night filled with champagne, signature cocktails, friends, an accidental fire, and more champagne, 2010 has arrived. We've got some plans for this year; some big, some small. I don't want to share everything right now (because what is life without a few surprises?) so I'll just give you some teasers of our plans/ my resolutions.
1. Put our condo on the market. 1a. Sell said condo. 1b. Buy our first house. Yes, we own a condo, which really feels like home to us, but it's time to expand. Time for a front yard and a back yard (though in Chicago, that means a strip of grass in the front and another strip in the back with room for a few chairs and a grill). Time for a basement that we can play in, entertain in, and debate about whether it should become a movie theater or an ultimate football room. Time for enough kitchen cabinets that will actually hold all of our kitchen stuff without having to store half of it in the furnace room. Mostly though, time for us to make a real house into a home where we can have enough room for both our (eventual) kids and visitors.
2. Every Tuesday night, to accompany Lost, I will make a dinner from Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Why? Well why not? Sounds fun, no?
3. Get back on a work out schedule that is doable for me. Not "I'm getting married so I have to work out 6 days a week and only eat chicken" type of workouts, but normal human type of workouts. Like 3 days a week so I can eat the Julia Child meals I plan on making weekly.
4. Listen more, talk less. Sometimes I just don't know when to shut the fuck up and I am a master interupter. It's incredibly rude. It needs to be curbed.
Ok, getting boring. Let's see some more fun stuff, shall we?
Obviously we all had to pile into the bathroom so we could sing monster ballads with the great acoustics.
Singing "Party in the USA" for about the 14th time.
Just a kazoo, folks, just a kazoo.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
