New Year's Eve

I was invited to a New Year's Eve reception at PM, given $50 to spend, and had a good time. I say a good time, not great, because I didn't win the big bucks.

There was champagne and a whole slew of hordourves (sp) to eat free. I grabbed an egg roll which I didn't eat more than one bite (cause it was cold, yuck), some carrots, a breadstick, and some spinach dip which was fantastic. Steve tried a little bit of everything. I couldn't even look at the fried foods as my nausea doesn't take much to start up.

After eating, we went downstairs to the slots and played a little. Wish we could have one, but that wasn't in the cards, no pun intended.

We left there at 10:30 with intentions of going to Josh's where almost the whole family was (minus Pato and Abby's family). I told Steve I'd rather go home and watch DVDs mainly because I didn't want to get in and out of the car in the frigid weather.

I've lost 1 1/2 lbs finally. Steve and I both really want to lose weight. We're seriously looking for recipes that are more nutritious but still tasty. I probably would have gained more weight if we'd gone to Jay's, I heard Shelley put on a wonderful spread!

I have this dream of getting a new ranch house with a swimming pool (warm water), hot tub, steam room, fitness equipment, and room for sewing and computer rooms. Wish we'd hit the lottery!

What did you do for New Year's Eve? Let me know!
