Happy 2014!


I still have so many posts to share about our holiday vacation in Texas, but I can’t help but share our New Year’s Eve in the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee first. We drove up yesterday to stay in a cabin with 13 friends and ring in the new year. I think this may be the best way to celebrate New Year’s…no need to dress super fancy, pay a huge cover charge or need to drive home. It’s especially nice since I’m about 8 months pregnant!

We made and brought way too much food and of course too many beverages, we watched Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve and played a myriad of card/drinking/pool/random type games. At midnight we got distracted and had one of those “Oh crap, I think the ball dropped!” moments, so we “cheers”ed quickly, kissed our loves and ran out the door with sparklers!

glow sticks cheers soexcited woohoo

Our cabin is right at the top of the hill so we were lucky enough to catch all the fireworks being shot in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

The first few hours of 2014 were spent hot tubbing (not me…sadly), playing many more games and staying up way past our bedtimes.


It’s hard to believe that it’s already 2014 and next New Year’s we will be parents doing who knows what on New Year’s Eve! Now, it’s time to figure out my resolutions…(uh…drink more coffee once Luna arrives and do not become a super competitive Mom are topping the list right now) and start this year off right. However, we have 2 more days left in the mountains, so resolutions and what not are on hold!
