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?
