Perfect Balance

New Year's Eve used to mean buying tickets to the hottest party, scoring an invitation, going all out to have one of our own, or having a nice, long romantic dinner for two followed by drinking like a fish.

This year, we had an 18 month old and had no babysitter, so our New Year's eve was quiet and spent at a nearby Mexican restaurant. We were home by 7:00.

The salsa and margaritas were free flowing, but one hour is about Lucas' threshold for dining out.

I was able to capture these cute photos of him with a balloon using my new favorite iPhone app, Mobile Photobooth.
However...

If the first week of the 2011, is any indication to what the rest of the year has in store for me and my little family, I'm thrilled!

So far, Lucas and I have been to Pretend City Children's Musem, explored a new park, went to a friend's house for a fun play date and have made several successful trips to Target together in an effort to stock and organize our new home.

I've worked out four times, had lunch with a friend, a date night with Todd, have seen four awesome movies (The American, Inception, Rabbit Hole and The Town), one was even in the theater and spent a glorious hour in a spa chair!

It's been the perfect balance of family time, friend time, me time and exploring our new surroundings. What more could I ask for?

This post is for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop: Prompt 2.) If the way you spent your New Year’s Eve is any indication of how the rest of the year will go, how would you say your future is looking right about now?

Every year, my new years eve's end up being less and less crazy and intense. They become more about being with the people I care most about at least a glass or two of champagne at midnight. I think next new years eve, I'd like to stay home and just invite a few friends over for a VERY laid back night. We'll see if that actually happens cause I do enjoy getting dressed up all fancy. Maybe one year, I'll take Lucas out and we can have our own New Years Eve date! : )
