New Year's Eve 2014

Hey, hey.  Let's start out this New Year's Eve with a big ol' Hello from Heaven!!  I see it at least 5 days a week!  And I am NOT a psycho clock stalker.  I am intuitive and I listen to my instincts, and I am aware is all.  And then, BOOM.  I look at a clock and get a sign that I am on the right path. 
Enough of that.  Y'all might think I am about to start reading palms.  ha.
So, we had a very, very low key New Year's Eve shindig.  Below, we have Dakin (Tashia's husband, Angie, and a really good pic of Suzy... get used to it Suzy.  you're in my world now!  ha)
Brian and Keif, from MMPT, hung out with us in a very low key manner as well.
Todd played host, as he was in the man cave and captain of his ship.

Look at Abby back there.  See how CrayCray we were that night?!
Actually, we were playing a dice game called 6,5,4.  Anybody familiar?  It's pretty fun.  And very simple.
These two (Tashia and Paula) laid up like they were freezing.

I think I wore the single solitary New Year's decoration.  I'm slipping in the hostess department.
Sellllfiiiie.  We are getting LOTS of these nowadays!!
We DID; however, remember to go buy fireworks!
Oh yeah, Jessi and Jeff came over too, and their daughter, Kaitlyn, ended up staying with us that night.
What is it with boys and fireworks?  They LOVE them.  It's like they become kids again!
If I'd have known we were going to have this much man interest, I'd have gotten some big dog fireworks.  As it was, I got some of those little pyramid spray kinds, smoke bombs, and sparklers.  A little underwhelming for the guys, I'm sure.
That is Josh Vines and Ryan Pilcher.  They were all about the firework action.  (Ellie talked them into it really!)
Ooooohh.  AAAAAhhhh.
Paula, still cold, sporting the bear-style Snuggie I bought Johnnye for Christmas.
These are our frands, Angie and Mickey Lofton.
And here's my hottie date, Todd the Bod.

We were on a countdown right about here, and I had everyone pair up!!
10, 9, 8, 7, ...
assume to position.
Happppy New Year!!!
Looks like Ellie scored here too!  ha.  Man killer.
Ana and Ellie, above, celebrating the big moment.
and Meredith, below, also getting her 2015 cheer on.

We tried writing words with sparklers like we see in all those cool pictures.  Well, we got a "U" anyway.  It was supposed to say "2015".  Close!
Gabs was not a fan of the loud fireworks, but a sparkler she could handle.

I love this picture of these newlyweds.

And my cautious little Gabbi Girl.  She'll be cautious like her dad.  Ellie will be a wild buck like her mom.
All in all, a great night with great friends.
I am so excited about the new year.  I have my word.  I have my planner filled out about 75%.  I am ready to intentionally MAXIMIZE my time, my resources, and my gifts/talents.  You have your word?
Let's do this.

DEFINITELY played my fare share of 6,5,4 dice games. Our parts of Wisconsin call it Ship Captain Crew :-)

Looks like it was a fun New Years. Sometimes getting together with a few friends and hanging out is the best way to celebrate. I know this year (like the past few years) I've gotten so excited about the new year. A lot has to do with picking my word each year. I love entering the year setting goals not resolutions. I enjoy reflecting back on how I've lived my word each year. I've also enjoyed seeing how you live your word each year.

Happy New Year and enjoy Maximizing this year

Did you order a planner? This post makes me think you'd love one! We think alike!

Sadly no planner for me. I looked at both the teacher and the Lets Grow Planners. Just in the situation right now that all our money is directed towards the boys therapies and bills.
