New Year's Recap

New Year's was wonderful! For the first time in our relationship, M and I spent the evening with just each other. Usually we hang out with a group and go out the bars or a party. This year, he surprised me with a romantic dinner at an amazing Italian restaurant in the city! I didn't know where we were going until we got there. He really has been too sweet :)

When we arrived at the restaurant

The bottle of wine we ordered. It was delicious.
The name is hilarious though - The Ratbag - haha!

Our dinner was delicious - M ordered Penne with vodka sauce and grilled chicken and I ordered Fettuccine Alfredo with grilled chicken. It also came with house salads and warm bread. Yum!

After dinner, we came back to my house to watch the fireworks on TV and celebrate with some more wine and noise makers :)


 I am in love with this picture :)

looking a little glossy eyed huh Britt? haha

first kiss of the New Year!

The next day, Jan 1st, was my dad's 50th birthday. My stepmom invited family over for dinner and cake. My dad didn't want anything big because he didn't want to turn 50 haha. But who would!?
getting ready to blow out the candles

Happy birthday dad!!
notice his age isn't on there? lol

I think I look a lot like him?

I hope everyone celebrated the new year in a fun way!
What are some of your resolutions?

Some of mine include:
- Get healthy and stick to it!! I turn the big 2-5 this year so it's time.
- Continue to stay on the Dean's List
- Blog more! (as much as school allows)
- Continue to have a close relationship with friends & family
- Continue to have a fun and healthy relationship with M

P.S - I have had this blog for one year on 1/1/11!! I never thought that would happen. Thank you ALL for following and becoming friends of mine. I appreciate you all and think you're great! I can't wait for another year :)
