Taco Bell and Sparkling Cider

New Year's eve last year was spent with friends in Cheney, watching movies and playing Settlers of Catan.

This year? We spiced things up...

We went to Target after Carson got off work. If you ever want to spend a quiet evening in Target, 9:30pm on New Year's Eve is the time.
And yes, we went to Taco Bell:
Carson: "Let's go get tacos"
Lindsay: "Are you serious?"
Carson: "We can make a resolution NOT to eat it in the new year"
Lindsay: "Sounds fantastic!"
So there we were, off to the drive thru...

And oddly enough, we weren't alone. Others had the idea for pre-resolution fast food. 
So we took pictures while we waited.

Target and Taco Bell. Jealous yet?
And then we returned home with our Target purchases: sparkling cider, The Blind Side, and candy. 
Carson LOVES candy.
We poured the cider, opened the candy, popped the DVD in and played Scrabble. 

At five to midnight, we were doing this:

 We were about to take a "Yay, it's midnight" picture
When we heard a sound. It confused us.
(We were mid-picture and this is an actual candid)

Until we realized that our clocks were one minute off and it was 2011
And there were fireworks going off downtown.
So we did what any normal people would do: we ran to the other end of the building, grabbed Heidi's spare key, and watched the fireworks from her window!

Happy New Year!


  1. y'all are the best and I love you! :-)

  2. I would have liked to see this. Your sitting there wondering why you hear fireworks...OH crap! We missed the strike of midnight! LOL [totally something we would do]

    Sounds like it was a great New Year!
