Happy New Year!!!
A new record? Post-Halloween to Post-New Year's Eve without...posts?
So, what's up, everyone??
I'm excited to report I actually went out this New Year's Eve. Yay! My friends/ neighbors were kind enough to host the Monkey for a sleepover, in exchange for which I hosted their munchkin, Alana's BFF Ashley, for a playdate/makeover party earlier in the evening so they could go out for dinner. On the grown-up entertainment roster for me was a fancy-ish house party with some friends over on the East side (hey, any excuse to ditch the GAP denim - bonus for silly hats!), swigging Prosecco (although the food was really my over-indulgence...shhh), and seeing a friend's band for a bit before zipping back home around a respectable 2:30am.
Today of course is the Monkey's first day back at school after Christmas Vacation, and let's face it, she's the star of this blog. :-) About vacation, it was actually pretty cool! Monkey's become quite the entertaining little buddy (I'll post some fresh 'ism's' later), and didn't make me much nuttier than anyone else might've, if stapled to me virtually 24/7. (HUGE contrast to last year...yikes!). So let's see.... we went to the Big Apple Circus, went ice skating on Wollman rink, swimming with some friends at a great rooftop pool, saw Tangled (tho' didn't make it thru the whole thing....too scary?), enjoyed the usual playdates with friends large and small, she went to "camp"...and let's not forget the spectacular snow that fell, aka "nature's playground"!
Okay, things to do, so over n' out for now....may add pics later...enjoy!
