If we were having coffee, you’d likely find me still in my pajamas, curled up on the sofa with a large cup of coffee and stifling a yawn. The last few days have been a lot of fun, but they’ve also been incredibly busy, and things are just getting busier as I enter 2016. This month will bring my mother-in-law’s wedding as well as the nonprofit’s annual sale, an event that provides all of our funding for the coming year. It’s also the start of Mardi Gras events and parades, as the holiday falls early this year, so we’ll be trying to attend some of those, too.
This past week, though, was all about getting ready to ring in the new year. Sam and I rarely venture out on the holiday–we tend to favor spending the night relaxing at home together–but this year we wanted to do something different…And that’s how we ended up at a table for 4 with my best friend and her wife at a Gatsby/20’s themed New Year’s burlesque party. The evening turned out to be a blast, and of course we made a late night of it. New Year’s day was spent sleeping and reading and getting ready for the night, when we had friends over for drinks and a movie. Several of our friends came over, and some of them even brought their pups, so we had a full house–and another late night.
Today, Little Jedi comes home from a week at his dad’s, and we’ll be getting ready for the return to school this week. Meanwhile, I’ll be spending the week working on grant proposals and catching up on the blogging things I haven’t been quite as good about recently.
But for now, I’m off to read coffee posts.❤ Happy 2016, all.
