Happy New Year!!!

I hope ya'll had a great New Year's Eve/3 day weekend!!
Mine flew by, of course ;)

Thursday/NYE
My brother, Dominic and sister came over for some apps.
I made some really random appetizers, buffalo chicken dip served w/celery sticks.
Stuffing balls (baked in the oven and rolled with sausage, very yummy!)

mini pigs in a blanket w/ketchup....Dominic and Billy were also being silly eating cheetos ;)
Billy and I had a few drinks after they left.
We ended up talking until 5 in the morning.
Ate some little piggies in a blanket, for breakfast & finally got to bed at 6.
Billy had to be to work by 8 the next day, poor B :(

Friday
I slept until 3:00, ha!
Billy and I had plans to take out 2 managers that work for him and the 2 lead supervisors, as their Christmas gift. He didn't want to do gifts this year and thought that us all going out for a fun dinner together was a better idea. There was 8 of us total, 2 of the ladies brought their husbands. We went to a hibachi restaurant, Osaka and it was so much fun!!

The guys were doing saké shots and we were all cheering them on.
Here is Billy...I guess they thought it was Billy's birthday so we got to wear some awesome masks, and the entire resturant sang happy birthday....ha! I should also mention our dinner was delicious!! After, we ended up going out with one of the couples to another bar, it was a great night!! I don't think we got home until 1 in the morning, once again poor Billy had to be to work at 8 in the morning. I don't know how he survives on hardly any sleep.

Saturday
I slept in late again.
Then my sis and I took Dominic to see the new Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel movie. Poor Dom fell asleep during the very first minute of the movie. He was so cute during the previews, we told him the movie was finally starting after 30 minutes of commercials and previews and he yelled "YAY" super loud, the theater was quiet but it got a few laughs.
We lifted the arm rests and Dom laid down on the seats between my sis and I.


After that we met Billy at Best Buy, him and I had plans to make a purchase or two.

B got a monster TV for the living room...
I got a new pink laptop:
I'm so excited to finally have my very first laptop!! I've wanted one for so long!
Merry Christmas to us :)
I'm glad we waited to buy these items, we got great deals on them!!

After Best Buy we all went back to our house and my brother came over to watch the WILD hockey game with us. We ordered some dinner and had a low key hang out night, we even made it to bed by 10:30 and finally watched The Hangover. Which was a hilarious movie!

Sunday
I woke up early and took down all the Christmas decor...
cleaned the entire house....
did all the laundry....
and got it all put away!
I was proud of myself for finally having a productive day ;)
Our house feels so empty to me now with all our Christmas decor put away! I think I'm going to have to do a little home decor shopping ;)
Once Billy was home from work we went to my parents for dinner. We stayed until Desperate Housewives was over. Love that show!

Now back to the real world of working full weeks....

I hope everyone had a great weekend!! :)
Best wishes for everyone in 2010
