Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a safe and happy new year and that your livers are in the process of forgiving you.

Last night, hubs and I attended a masquerade party thrown by the good folk at Adventure Martial Arts (that’s where we take our martial arts fitness class). It was held at a country club in Casselberry, but first we met up at our friend Carrie’s house before heading over.

Our friend’s Ale and Jason were already there and we had to get pictures with them when we realized that hubs matched Ale and I matched Jason.

After about an hour, we drove over to the country club where I immediately sensed danger across a crowded room.

Those are cupcakes from Sweet. And they’re not the mini ones either. Those are the big boys. Speaking of those cupcakes, I’d like to take this time to make a public apology to my thighs and ass for last night.

Hubs and I shared a plate that included our first cupcake.

I think all the food was from Jason’s Deli. I’ve never been there before but man, it was all so good. I might have to put that into my permanent restaurant rotation.

While we were getting a drink at the bar, I noticed they had “Dude” flavored vodka.

I was equally worried and intrigued about the flavor. Particularly since it was yellow. So I got it.

I’m happy to report that it tastes like Mountain Dew and not urine.

Toward the end of the night, the cupcakes looked lonely. I couldn’t let them spend the new year alone, so I adopted another one and gave it a home.        In my belly.

Throughout the night, we hung out with friends.

Met Kung Fu Panda.

Watched a magic show.

And waited till midnight to ring in the new year.

These are Sheila’s awesome masks (she teaches our fitness class). She bought them in Italy. Incidentally, the only way it’s possible to look as good as Sheila in a picture is to have her wear a full face mask.

Of course, hubs was a hit with all the ladies. I can’t leave him alone for one second.

At midnight, we all went outside and lit floating lanterns. It was really cool and reminded me of the movie Tangled.

Then I got a new year’s smooch.

After midnight, we all went back to Carrie’s house where I proceeded to molest the hummus she brought back from the party. Have you had hummus from Jason’s Deli? I wasn’t even hungry, but I could.not.stop eating it. So delicious.

My holidays haven’t been the best this year so I gotta say I was pretty grumpy at the beginning of the night but had an unexpectedly great time and a great new year. Now I’m going back to watching The Twilight Zone marathon on SyFy and making a new year’s butt-print in the couch.

What did you do last night?

  1. I love masks. Last year I had a Mardi Gras birthday, and my sister and I spent forever making like 20 masks to force other people to wear. Jealous.

    As for my NYE, we chillaxed in PJs and shoved fondue into our faces. (:

    The food and party looks awesome… and you look fantastic in that dress. Killed it.

  3. Loving you in that dress!!! You look gorgeous! I’m so glad you had an awesome night. I just went to dinner with my parents and their friends and was in bed by midnight. Lame.

    Your dress is pretty fab….

    Jason’s Deli= Amazing.
    Pro tip-Get salad bar to go (It’s like $8 and has a ton of bean salads, pasta salad, cottage cheese and mini corn muffins). In your ‘Ice cream to go cup’ get a pound of red pepper hummus and hard boiled eggs. Finally, eat it for lunch for two days.
    PS: don’t forget the pumpkin seed crackers. Delish.

  6. We’re so glad you guys came! It made our night!!

    Jason’s Deli has that hummus on their salad bar. I like to get a salad and dump the hummus all over it. Plus, the also have free ice cream. Now I’m craving Jason’s Deli.

    Sweet and Jason’s Deli are two of my favorite things. Holy yum. Happy New Year! Looks like such a fun night!

    The lanterns are so cool! I want one!*

  10. I went to a bar on base with some friends to ring in the New Year. And I thought of you! Why? Because there were so many people dressed slutty and just trashy in general and I couldn’t help but think you would have taken pictures of their outfits and did a “what people wore” post for New Year’s Eve. Hah!

    It will be my 2012 goal to light a floating lantern.

  12. I’m so glad I don’t live close to Sweet because I’d be in some majorly serious trouble. Their hi-hat cupcake is to die for.

    We didn’t do much. Cooked dinner at home and watched New Years Rockin’ Eve. Yep, pretty lame-o.

    i love jasons deli. we were in houston over christmas and had to go there right away.
    and on another “things you didn’t need to know or care to” note, that quote about the fondest memories are made around the cupcake table/kitchen/whatever, my mother in law has in her house. arent you glad you now know that?

  14. Looks like you had a blast! I might be alllll bruised up from my night, but it was still so much fun. I’m glad we decided to actually go out this time and do something. Here’s to a fun 2012!

  15. Those lanterns are gorgeous! Did you use real candles in them? I was watching the Hangover 2 yesterday with my boyfriend and we both thought that those would be illegal to do in the US because they could start fires.
    I love the masquerade idea for New Years!

  16. Jason’s deli is my favorite. They have salad bar and soft serve, which balances out perfectly as a healthy meal. The couple swap is too funny. I’m really happy that you cleared up the mystery of Dude flavored vodka because I saw it at the liquor store on Christmas eve and have been puzzled every since. Thank you.
