{Flashback: New Years & The Orange Bowl 2013}

This year, Kevin and I got to have our very first Adult's Only NYE since Colton was born.  To say we were excited was an understatement.  I mean...last year, we watched the ball drop from bed.  And, I was barely hanging on for that!  We're OLD. 

We started off the night with James and Lauren Messing.  James is Kevin's best friend.  He was the best man in our wedding, and I am pretty sure the only reason Kevin survived college.  His wife, Lauren, is a dear friend of mine, and quite possibly the cutest pregnant woman I have ever seen!  They have the most precious and dainty little girl named Kate, and are expecting another in a few months.  It was so nice to see them, and spend some QT catching up...it's been way to long!  We ate dinner at Rebel House, a new restaurant in Boca Raton that is owned by their neighbor.  The food was AMAZING.  The portions were small, but the flavor made up for it in spades!

After we said good-bye to the Messings, we headed to Sandbar in Delray Beach to meet up with Ashley and Noah. 

 If you are ever in Delray (and I highly recommend you go), you MUST check this place out!  I honestly cannot think of a better place to have spent NYE.  We had our toes in the sand, a bon fire keeping us warm, great company, football playing on the tv's and even a corn hole tourney going on.  It was the PERFECT way to ring in 2013!

On New Year's Day, we ventured out with the boys to the Orange Bowl.  Florida State was playing and Kevin had been telling the boys for weeks that we were going...even though we did not have tickets yet.  You see...Kevin is "thrifty".  Even though the tickets were selling on StubHub for $6.00 each the day before, Kevin had convinced himself that we could get them cheaper on the day of the game from scalpers.  WRONG!  We wound up spending $40/ ticket.  What we didn;t expect was that the NIU fans would travel like an army!  Good for them for supporting their team.  I can't really blame them though, I'd want to get the heck out of IL in January too!  Not a fan of extreme cold!  Anyway, lesson learned.  We had a great time and the Noles won the game.  The boys had a blast and we made some pretty special memories!

Are you starting to notice a pattern?  The child can sleep anywhere!
