Happy New Year!!
I am so excited about a new year! WOO HOO!
Dale has been wanting for years to go downtown to celebrate the New Year...just the 2 of us. So, we finally did it! He got us a package ( we didnt stay downtown..rooms were $400 for that night) that included 4 bands, a comedian & fantasy Vegas. When we got down there we found out all the restaurants had been by reservation, but they found room for us! YAY! It was a lovely buffer...pretty pricey, but they had seafood & prime rib & cheesecakes, so that's probably why!
We started out with the gaming tables. He didnt understand @ first that the tables were free & I think he was worried about money! lol When I said " Oh, honey, if it's not free, I"m not playing" he relaxed! lol
The comdedian had great comedic timing..his show was about 40 min..the last 20 min or so the jokes got pretty bad.
We ran into someone that Dale works with so that was fun.
About 11 we got hungry and found a place to grab pizza. Then we got our coats ready & stood on the near outskirts of the crow waiting for the new year to come in. Then thousands of balloons dropped on us! It was a weird feeling to see all these balloons coming @ you from us so high! The noise when they landed was phenomenla...Dale thought they were popping from all the noise. It looked to me like people were going around popping them. Employees were there trying to pick balloons up as fast as they could.
It was an experience that I"m glad we did, especially since Dale had wanted to for so long. He doesnt think he wants to do it again though. It got hot upstairs & it was so noisy downstairs that you couldnt talk.
What things have you been wanting to do that you haven't? Take your opportunity in 2009! I'm trying to see what else we can do that Dale has been wanting to do.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
