New Years Eve: Part 2

The second part of our New Year's Eve was spent with the Self's. 

These guys are two of our very best friends. Brillante and I met on our very first day of college and we've been bosom buddies ever since. I was so happy when she married Darin! He really is her perfect match.  

We are one wild and crazy bunch so we got all dolled up and hit up all the hottest clubs...haha...just kidding. I'm pretty sure we're all like, 25 going on 50 so we spent the night eating lots of yummy food and playing Sequence. And you know what? I wouldn't have had it any other way. 
 Everybody got their game face on...especially Darin.
Of course the Self's beat us. They are pretty much game experts. I'm not exactly terrible at games...but let's just say it takes me a while to get a hang of the rules. I'm not sure we ever stood a chance. 

Around 11:30 we turned on New Year's Rockin Eve and watched the ball drop with Ryan Seacrest, Dick Clark, and my personal favorite - Lady Gaga. 

And of course there was lots of kissing at midnight :)
Somehow I didn't catch these two kissing on camera...

Then it was time for a little sparkling cider. 

I think the cider is my favorite part of New Year's. I'm pretty sure I could drink a whole bottle myself. De-lish. 

As if our night wasn't wild enough we decided to brave the cold and go outside for to pop some poppers. 
  I was cracking up looking at all of these pictures on my IPhoto. Erik's faces were priceless. I just wish that second photo hadn't gotten cut off! You can catch just a glimpse of his pure joy as he let those streamers fly. 
Brillante's faces were pretty great too.  

I am proud to call that happy man my husband. I do feel sorry for Brillante standing next to him though...she looks a bit terrified. 

Darin will probably kill me for posting this picture, but I couldn't resist. It was the only one I had of him and I couldn't bear to leave him out. 

Once the driveway was thoroughly covered in streamers we went back inside and promptly went to bed. I told you we're senior citizens.

First of all, Darin says that he looks like a 40 year old drunk man in that picture. haha! I think it's funny. You got some super cute pictures!! I love them! I love that my "popper face" is the same in every single picture... haha. Fun night. Thanks for letting us come over! We'll have to do it again sometime.
