Happy New Year!
Yesterday we tidied up house a bit, watched some TV, and had a generally nice/relaxed day. We both showered, dressed, and then met Steven & Thad to drive through the holiday light show in the park. It was cute, and while geared toward kids, it was a fun Christmasy thing to do.
Then the 4 of us went to Bethany Blues to ring in the new year. We typically go to Dos Locos but this year decided to do something different. Thad had learned that a local band he likes a lot was playing at Bethany Blues so we decided to switch it up and go there. We started out in the bar for drinks but quickly realized it would be WAY too loud once the band began to play.
So we moved to a table at the edge of the dining room which turned out to be perfect. We couldn't see the band from our table, but its location allowed us to hear them well and still be able to talk amongst ourselves. We all enjoyed our food and drinks, and then shortly before midnight the staff passed out hats, horns, and glasses of champagne.
We toasted the new year, then headed out into the frigid cold (13 degrees) and went home. Spouse & I stayed up until shortly after 1am watching Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.
Today we just relaxed and watched TV nearly all day. The dogs loved napping under the fleece throws on our laps. That evening we went to The Pond with Steven & Thad for their 1/2 price specials for dinner. We returned home and watched TV until bedtime.
