Our night out was fun. We had a delicious dinner and cocktails with friends. We listened to some fun live music of our friends' band. And we left for home around 12:30 this morning.
I don't have much in the way of 'nightlife clothes', but I do like to dress for special occasions. Normally, I'm a jeans and t-shirt girl, but sometimes I get the urge to 'show a little leg'. I also have my cute fuzzy jacket that has a small window in which I can wear it. This year, I have worn it often, but it's so damn cute, I can't help it. So I just wore my same ol' black dress with the pink swirly flowers over my new 3/4 sleeve black tee with ruffled collar that my mother-in-law sent me for Hanuka this year, my fuzzy jacket and my ass-kickin' boots. And here's how sad my wardrobe really is: the jacket I snagged when we were getting rid of a bunch of my grandmother's things and I was the only one narrow enough in the shoulders to wear it; the dress I bought at a discount clothing store so long ago, I can even remember the occasion for which I got it; and the boots were a 'gift' from Hubby that he bought for me I think before we were married (9 years??) after I said how badly I wanted them but did not want to spend $65. I have certainly gotten my money's worth of those bits!!
Anyway, as I said, dinner with friends was fun, but I had planned on having more 'fun'. It ended up me and 'the boys' while our friend Terri danced with her daughter. I wasn't feelin' the groove thing last night. I didn't have nearly enough to drink, or for some reason it wasn't having it's usual affect, and it wasn't really a 'dance floor' type venue. I even had a couple pre-outing cocktails at home! There was one woman who I'm pretty sure would've just hit me eventually anyway, the way she was spinning and flailing. I did see a girl I used to work with and Hubby saw some of his co-workers from the job he just left, so it was nice to be a part of the community while ringing in the new year.
My one major complaint...by the time midnight rolled around, Hubby and I were drinking coffee. We toasted the new year with coffee...I just feel like there wasn't enough of the 'celebration' aspect of a year end party. Today: I look for a bottle of champagne!
I am EAGER to get this year going, now. I want to start my class, start working on the car (maybe I can even figure out how to fix my own!), make some more paper, and really focus on doing more to make me happy.
