New Year's Eve Day, Cora and I woke up at the crack of 10:00 and ran out to run a few errands in preparation for having some folks over later in the day.
Our first destination was Target. We needed to pick up a few items, and also there's also a nice view of down town from the top of the parking garage. But, it was overcast and you couldn't see down town. (**FAIL**).
But we did a little shopping, and saw something very confusing:
After getting home from shopping, doing a little cleaning, and party prep, some friends / neighbors came over. People came. People left. Glasses were filled. Glasses were emptied. One glass met an ignoble end. We played a little with the "Would You Rather…" cards. Played a lot of 80's music on the cable TV.
Cora & I counted down to midnight.
And we share the first of many, many New Year's kiss.
We were having such a good time, that I only managed to take this one picture of my co-worker and her husband. People left around 2:00 and we crashed out around 2:30.
It was then time to head downtown for a little shopping. The sole on one of my pair of work shoes blew out, and Nordstrom's was having a sale. (I saved about $50 on the shoes.) Kitty-Korner from Nordstrom's is P.F. Chang's. It is one of my favorite restaurants, and Cora had never been.
And I was Jonsing for some of their lettuce wraps and Mongolian beef.
The funniest part? My fortune cookie fortune. Seriously? That's my fortune? Here I am, sitting in a nice restaurant, sharing a nice meal on a very domestic day with my fabo fiancée and I get "The love of your life will appear in front of you unexpectedly!"
So, I played Peek-A-Boo!
(And I have never even been to New York City.)
