Happy New Year!! ♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪ ♪♫•*¨

Hey, you had to know it was coming! :)

Hope you had a great time and aren't nursing a hangover as you read this. Here's how our New Year's celebration played out.

Sandy always wanted to see what a goatee would look like on me so I started growing one a few days ago while I was on holidays. We weren't crazy about it. I didn't like the gray, it made me look like some guy in his forties (wink) and that simply would not do. Sandy didn't like the way it felt against her skin, so I shaved it off.  What do you think of the look?...

We stayed in for the night, just the two of us.  Ordered pizza for dinner, there's a small place up the street that makes the best pizza we've ever had. They're the only ones we go to when we're in the mood for it...

Washed it down with this...

Started watching a movie on TV...

While we munched on this...

And washed it down with some of this...

Stopped the movie to play with some of our toys...

Caught the final few seconds of the New Year's countdown. Either they set off fireworks here or City Hall just exploded....

Stayed up until about 3am and got up at 10:30.  Sandy did some cinnamon buns in the oven...

We had some fruit salad which she made earlier...

And her world-famous latte (this stuff's amazing!)...

Last night I dreamt I shot someone who took a hostage. I have very interesting dreams.

So...what did you do for New Year's?


  1. Sounds like a near-perfect way to ring in the New Year!

  2. perfect way to welcome the new year! happy new year to you both!

    the goatee makes you look "mature". wink wink!


  3. Rasha, Lola- it was!

    Joy- I'm glad I lost the goatee then, I don't want to look too mature before I have to. ;)

  4. Personally I love the goatee! I think it looks great on you :) But then I've always been partial to facial hair. Sounds like a perfect way to bring in the New Year! That pizza, the fruit, the latte - it all looks so amazing! Have a wonderful 2011!

  5. Sounds like you had a very interesting New Years Barry, lol! Looks like fun though. I think the facial hair works for you!

  6. Happy New Year, Barry, sounds like you and Sandy had an amazing one! Pizza and pop is the best way to do it, plus the other stuff too. :) And the goatee has its charm. Ooh, and the cinnamon buns and latte look delicious. :)

  7. Wow, what an amazing way to ring in the new year! I spent the evening with friends, which was nice since two of them will be moving out of town soon. We ate lots of yummy food, from dolmas to warmed brie with pears to sliders, and drank Lambrusco (an amazing sparkling red wine). I spent the next morning enjoying a Starbucks Americano & raspberry muffin & talking to my boyfriend, who has just had to move back to the UK. Happy New Year - I know it's going to be a great one!

  8. That has to be the cutest night EVER. Your last post, by the way, is very inspirational. I love it. Happy new year! I hope it becomes one of the best. I'm glad to have stumbled upon your blog in 2010. Lots of love!

  9. happy you enjoyed the start of a new year.
