Happy 2012! I hope you had a great time ringing in the new year. Kevin and I started out New Year’s Eve day by going to downtown Orlando for the Citrus Bowl parade with his brother’s family, including his adorable nephew who is about 17 months old. It was so fun to see his nephew get excited over all the parade floats.
Then we capped off New Year’s Eve by getting together with friends and heading to a party. I can’t believe this is my third New Year’s Eve with Kevin. Time flies.
Kevin and I have also been fully utilizing some of our Christmas presents. I love that we received so many food-related presents. My parents bought us some massive gourmet bone-in steaks, and my sister bought us a grill basket so we could cook veggies on the grill. Both were put to use in a delicious dinner.
Kevin seasoned and grilled up the steaks and also roasted potatoes, onions and garlic in the grill basket both over hickory chips, which gave everything a nice, smoky flavor.
To wash it all down? Oh yeah, my parents also got us a Beertender, which is a kegerator for Heineken and Newcastle kegs. It’s actually almost the same model we bought Kevin’s brother for Christmas.
Here’s to a great 2012! Do you make new year’s resolutions? I don’t usually get too into them, but I do like to have some sort of self-improvement goals that I keep in mind to start off the new year on the right foot.
- Kick butt on the GMAT
- Get in ideal wedding shape
- Learn to relax better
What are your resolutions? How did you ring in the new year?
