First of all, I want to thank you all for your kind words yesterday. I really appreciated them and I know the Tech community appreciated your prayers and support. You all are awesome! For anyone that wants to make a donation to Officer Crouse's family for funeral arrangements or to help them celebrate Christmas this year, you can do that through paypal using this website: https://sites.google.com/site/hokiesforcrouse/.
Now, on to happier things because as much as I am keeping this family in my prayers, if I dwell on something that makes me upset or angry, it is not good for anyone!
I haven't had a chance to link up with Neely or Amber for their Holiday Blog Challenge yet, so why not join in on the last day :)
Today's is about New Years Eve, and Stuart and I have done the same thing every year that we have been dating.... this will be our third New Year's Eve together. However, before we started dating I spent a few NYE with him as well... but we didn't kiss at midnight ;).
We usually go over to one of his friend's (our friends?) parents houses where we eat and hang out and play board games, I know we are a raging crowd... we've been doing this since high school and it's a tradition! I think the over 21 year olds had champagne and beer last year so we are maturing a bit, haha!
Last year I had just had surgery three days before and it was my first outing. Because I had just had my tonsils out I couldn't eat anything and all I could drink was ice water. I got exhausted talking in the first hour and just sat there quietly watching everything happen...boring. Those of you that haven't had your tonsils removed probably don't know this but your breath is HORRIBLE for a week or so after the surgery because of the cauterization of the skin. Stuart was pretty apprehensive about giving me my kiss at midnight last year... nothing sexy here! Hopefully this year will be better, haha!
This year we are heading down to Atlanta for the Chick-fil-a Bowl that UVA is playing in against Auburn with some friends. We should be done with the game before midnight and are planning on heading down to some bars afterwards. Should be a fun change!!
Happy Friday Y'all!
