The promised New Years pics. Told you I was a photowhore.
Friends of ours have a pretty little piece of property tucked away by the river and every year they build a huge bonfire for New Years Eve. I so wish I would have taken a picture of this monster. The pre-lit bonfire was easily 20 ft wide and 20 ft tall. Though it seems like we were alone in the photos, there's always a big group of us. We talk, laugh, throw poppers at the feet of the unsuspecting, knock back a few.
Will ya look at that? Babers is SMILING.
Mini had all the freedom to roam that night, leash free, but don't you know she stayed right underneath our feet the entire night? She's not too keen on the fireworks but if you picked her up and held her, she'd actually look in the sky at them going off. I swear it felt like she was our child that night. Good practice?
Yep, we start 'em out young in the country. Rednecks much? Check out the Hooters Edition Bud Light bottle. I jokingly told someone to save all their bottles because I was going to make a chandelier out of them. One of the women in the group actually believed me.
And yes - *sigh* - that's a fish mouth coozie. So what?
She is HUMAN I tell ya. Posing for the picture, that's my girl!
And this is my I've-had-one-too-many-glasses smile.
Did ya think there'd only be one midnight kiss? Psht!
I'm going to scrapbook one of those kissie shots like I did last year, try to start a little tradition of my own. Help me decide which one is better - the top one or this last one.
I know I said my resolution would be to lose 10 lbs, but I think I also want to add one more: To live one day at a time. I'm such a natural worry-wart and I've really got to stop thinking so damn much about the future. What ifs run through my mind constantly. I'm going to give myself a brain wrinkle if I don't get ahold of it. I'm sure I'll tack on a few more resolutions by the time one of those photos gets scrapped.
Wanted to share a pretty fire shot from earlier in the weekend:
So, I've got one question before I wrap this post up: How long can I keep my Christmas tree up before it becomes obnoxious?
