i shouldn't get as much pleasure out of this as i do

On Monday I started taking down the Christmas decorations. Man does it feel good. The only things I feel sad about taking down are the trees but everything else I'm okay with putting away, borderline ecstatic about removing all evidence of that wonderful/awful time of year. Also with it being a new year I'm taking advantage of my no-mercy feeling of tossing things into the donation pile. I've never regretted or remembered donating anything and it's so cathartic.
Today Matt & I and his family are going to Disneyland and we'll be annual passholders once again. Good thing Disneyland has a hard time taking down it's Christmas decorations too 'cause I missed being able to go around the holidays.

new year's resolutions

This latest Christmas party was about 5 seconds away from being called off. I have had a rough couple of days/weeks/months and a whole lot of things came to head and I just didn't have it in me to throw a party and be a host once again. But it went along and it was great. We had a lot of fun with this photo booth idea I found on this gal's blog about a chalkboard we hold with our new year's resolutions. Obviously my mind was still in a certain state when I posed for this photo.
But you realize how much things don't seem to be so big a deal with a cocktail in hand.
This is a serious resolution but the photo itself is just hilarious.
Well here we are: 2012. I know it's gonna be better than the last one. I just know it.

Gong Hei Fard Choy

A party was had. Confetti and dirty champagne flutes are all over my house. Worth it.
