Memory Lane Friday - New Year's

Memory Lane Friday is a weekly blog carnival where you can blog about your memories and link up.  All are welcome, and this week the topic is New Year's.

It's been a long time since I've done anything interesting for New Year's, because of the kid-factor.  So I had to wind back quite a bit on this one - ten years to be exact.  One of my favorite New Year's was when a large group of us bought tickets to go hear The Worx play.  They are a regional band that has some really fun music.  The tickets included snacks and champagne at midnight.  People from both my work and Paul's work were there, so it was a lot of fun.

This is me with my friend, Tiffany.  I had to crop out some random person to the left, since I can't remember her name and don't have permission to put her on my blog.  But Tiff has said before (granted it was 10 months ago...) she doesn't care!  Everyone needs a friend like Tiff.  She's vibrant, fun, geniune, and a true girly-girl who still manages to be down to earth.  I adore her.  Plus, she talks a lot.  I always like when I don't have to carry the conversation.  Tiffany has always been there when I needed a friend to lean on, and she also carries a very strong faith.  What more can I say?  Where there's Tiff, there's fun!
Note the date in the bottom corner.
Now I know this picture was taken before midnight.
Why?
Because the year that we hit 2000, I stayed at home all night refusing to go out and I watched a marathon of The Crocodile Hunter on television.  Ha!

Anyhow, we danced and drank our champagne at midnight and heard some great music.
And I vaguely remember stopping at IHOP on the way home, where I was practically starving because they took so long; I even saw stars.  I was so happy when my eggs and toast and bacon finally came!

Haha, it was so much easier to stay up, pre-kids!

Anyway, I'm glad you and your friend had a blast! That is, until you had to wait so long for your food. ;)

I don't even have kids (except for 4-legged ones) and I don't party at all any more! Hubby and I will toast to the New Year with some asti though. :)
