It's a NEW YEAR!

On New Year's Eve we, along with some of our good friends, were able to find child care at the last minute!! Amazing indeed and we jumped at the chance to get all dolled up and go out for a night on the town. We ate at this great little place in the city called "The Horse Inn" and to our surprise, we ate in a horse stall! It was such a creative place, filled with character, creativity and charm. We enjoyed our company immensely, talking and laughing the night away. Josh and Jessica Stoppard, Jake and I. After dinner we visited the majestic home of a man in the city, (a friend of our friends). His house was out of this world and I found myself just walking around staring at all his beautiful, luxurious things! I restrained from taking pictures!! The most hilarious part of the night happened as we were getting into the truck to head home. The four of us had driven together so as we approached our truck Jake realized he couldn't find his keys. After much digging into his pockets and searching the ground, he and Josh went back upstairs to see if perhaps they had fallen out on the bed, (where all the coats were placed). As he was searching he realized that his coat was STILL lying on the bed and that he had grabbed the wrong one. BUT, not just any wrong jacket, this was a young woman's brand new Christmas jacket from Banana Republic!!! He almost died of embarrassment, humbly removed her jacket and got into his real jacket! The guys were just cracking up when they came back out and told us the story! I, being the detailed person I am, didn't even notice he had another persons jacket on, they looked that similar. He did say later on that it felt a bit snug!! Oh, how we roared with laughter!!!

We came home around 10 because our babysitter, (thanks so much Paige!) had plans. It was a comfy night, just lounging on the couch, counting down the seconds to a New Year. I did consider going up to the square of our town, seeing as they were going to be releasing 2009 ping pongs from the 4th story building, but I decided to just stay put, it was soooooo cold outside!

We crawled into bed at 12:02 am on January 1st, 2009 and thus began our New Year!!
Hope you each had a memorable evening with the ones you love!

Haha, what a hysterical story! One time on Christmas Eve, a woman from church (Camille, I watched her baby girl in August for a few days...) took my dark purple coat by accident and I also took her black coat without realizing it because it was so dark in the church! We switched back the next Sunday and laughed at how she managed to fit into my size 12ish coat! Love ya!
