2014 is here!

I hope you all had a great time celebrating the beginning of 2014!
We spent our evening with some of our best friends playing board games, having dance parties, and of course enjoying a few adult beverages & snacks :)
One of the best parts of the evening was that we didn't have to worry about in-laws graciously kept him overnight so we could relax :)
It was perfect!

Blurry, but they were attempting to do the "High 85" lol!

NYE snacks :)

Almost midnight, time for some champagne!

We even had some time to ourselves on New Year's Day to watch a movie together! If you like the Batman movies, you must watch "The Dark Knight Rises"! So good!

We headed over to my in-laws to have the traditional new year's meal of pork and sauerkraut for dinner. I enjoyed mashed potatoes instead of the sauerkraut :)
We ended our meal with some delicious cupcakes I picked up at the grocery store :)
It was a great day!

The boy loves a good cupcake! Just like his mommy :)

Today we are back at it!
Work, handling X, social life, etc.
I can't wait to see what 2014 has in store for us :)

How did you ring in the new year?
Any big plans for 2014?

Two more things for you today...

I received an adorable ornament from a blog friend the other day in the mail
Thank you so much Cari!
It is crazy how someone can really know you and you have never met before :)
Check out Cari's blog at Adventures of the Roberts!
And no, we are not related, but she sure does know me pretty well :)

Final subject...
The month of December I participated in a daily photo challenge on Instagram under #klrphotoaday.
It was so much fun finding something to fit the theme of each day!

Between that challenge and Shay over at Mix and Match Family taking a photo a day in 2013, I have been inspired to take a photo a day in 2014 :)
