I had to flee Queens this morning because of the impending SnowLoko (thanks to BostonTweet for that gem of a phrase). I managed to beat the snow and then was faced with the decision between food shopping and hitting the liquor store. Can you guess what I chose? Yea, three bottles of wine, blueberry vodka, seltzer and some limes. Homegirl don't play. So I've decided that I'm going to get moderately drunk and try on every party dress I own in an effort to figure out what I'm going to wear for New Years Eve. It's a special occasion for a couple of reasons:
  1. I'm not going to black out and get kicked out of the bar before 11pm and 
  2. I'm going to have someone to kiss at midnight! And it's not one of my female friends! This is big news, folks. That's all I'm going to say about that but, yes, I am fairly pumped.
Also, I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season. I wanted to remind you that tomorrow is the start of the second Change Your Life Challenge. I am going to start sorting through my crap after I unpack the five loads of now-clean laundry that I brought home (beats the coin-op in my apartment building!) and watch Love Actually once or twice. It's not too late to sign up! More information can be found here.

So who is the very lucky guy? We love Love Actually and may watch it several times ourselves as we brace for the storm. Love ya J.

Are you hitting up a bar or what? You may not want to post about the guy, but at least post about the plans! :)

I still haven't seen Love Actually, hmm.

Also, getting drunk by yourself when you're snowed in: definitely classy. No matter what anyone else tells you.

Hooray for your NYE plans and impending New Years kiss <3!

Oh my awesome! That is big news, and great news J.

You know what you should do? Post a pic of yourself in each dress and we'll all vote.

But post them in mixed-up chronological order, so you don't get people just voting knee-jerk for you at your most progressively(-moderately)-drunkest!

I do realize this suggestion is probably a good day or two late for the fashion show. But even if so: happy happy new year's eve and new year to come to you!

if things continue with the guy, perhaps i'll write a little something about him. i try to be protective over people in my life since i'm the one who signed up for the blog, and not them!

stacey - i'm going to a couple of house parties and am looking forward to dressing up and feeling all pretty and girly!

monica - NEVER SAW LOVE ACTUALLY?! goodness woman, get on that.

dogimo - i didn't see this comment until today, that would have been a great idea. i think i may have to use that when my birthday rolls around.. happy new year, friend!
