New Years Eve, Chris and I had a busy day. I woke up early to get started on a birthday cake for my dad. We spent the day with my parents celebrating, eating cake, fish and chips, candy, chocolate and so much more. Our game plan was to make it back early enough to grab some lobster, beer and a bottle of champagne to celebrate New Years just the two of us. We weren’t entirely sure we could do it. Surprisingly, there was lobster left at the market. NO LINE!! at the beer store and lucky for us, a couple sweet friends had given us a bottle of champagne earlier in the week as a Christmas gift (which we had still stashed away in the fridge). The only thing we were missing was some lobster cracking tools. We made a couple quick stops and no luck. However this was our private New Years party and if we had to use our hands and a hammer…well, that was ok too.
Our night was amazing. We didn’t get the big lobster pot boiling until maybe 10??. We looked up boiling times on google. Neither of us had ever made lobster ourselves, and it could not have been better! As we drank, we took lots of pictures, laughed and prepared an awesome late night lobster feast. We drank our chilled champagne at midnight and discussed endlessly how we were too old to recognise any of the young performers at Times Square. This was my very first New Years not going out…and although I was bummed I didn’t get to see everyone I loved that night. I did get to spend it with my favorite loved one and it was awesome. By tummy and cheeks still hurt the next day from laughing. We were cozy and warm and honestly, I have never felt happier.
