Ringing in the new year as a wifey

I am so excited for New Years. In past years, New Years always appears to be a bust.

Let me recap:

NY 2005: New Years at the Frankford Legion. This was my first new years with Jer. Jer was playing in his family band, to a crowd of ... maybe 30? Jer was in a mood and yelling at his brother's, I made the mistake of stepping in and telling him to stop being such an ass, that he didn't have to come down and play. Well, let's just say when the ball dropped, I had no kiss. NY 2005 SUCKED!!

NY 2006: This was a pretty good one. We went to Belleville with Tara and went out with Jillian and friends. We went to a house party followed by a visit to the bar. Nothing to crazy, but it was fun.

NY 2007: We hosted a New Year's party at our place. Jer had his toe-fecto and spent the night upstairs in bed. I had a blast, drank a whole lot of Sangria, but dear Jeri had a bummer New Years.

NY 2008: Jer has a gig with this disco band he plays with the odd time. It was in Ajax at some old person bar. The lead singer didn't show up so one of the girlfriends (not me) had to step in. I was dateless watching my boy sing. Not a bad New Years, but not a great one.

NY 2009: I CAN'T WAIT!!! 8 of us are getting dressed up and going for dinner at Coco Lezonne in Little Italy. After that, we are going dancing at the Orbit Room. My outfit will consist of my revamped wedding dress (shortened to cocktail length), hot purple Mary Jane pumps, a hot purple clutch, and a fun purple hair band to match.
(note, these are not my pumps .. I WISH!!)

Why am I so excited? I get to spend time with my friends, enjoy great food and drinks, look uber fun, and best off, spend it with my husband :) And you know what? Who knows what next year will bring so this may be my last chance at a killer new years.
