Happy New Year!
The fiance and I are wishing you a very happy 2010! We have so much to look forward to this year and we can't wait to share it with all of our friends and family.
We rang in the new year together. First, we went to a concert at C.W. Post. My very generous parents gave us the tickets for Christmas. It was wonderful! The concert has become a tradition for us. Ever since our first New Year's Eve (12.31.05) in New York we have attended the concert. Since the concert ends fairly early we managed to get back to Astoria to count down to the new year in our "new" apartment. I was wonderful to be in our home for the new year.
Prior to both families visiting, we hung the new curtains that the fiance's mom made us. They are beautiful. Interestingly, a friend of mine gave me a give with some fun gift wrap. We were able to use the gift wrap to tie back the curtains to let light in during the day. I have to say that the cute apron that came in the wrapping also went to good use this weekend with all of the cooking.
New Year's Day was spent with my family. This was the first time many of them saw the apartment. We had lots of good food. My parents were kind enough to give us two chairs as a house warming gift. We purchased a table a few weeks ago but had no chairs. These chairs also made it possible for everyone to have a place to sit when my family was visiting. My parents also brought a ham to supplement the appetizers, baked ziti, and dessert. It was lots of fun to have everyone there. We even got a few rounds of Wii in before everyone went home.
Saturday, Maryland family came up. They are such troopers. I-95 North was closed but they made it here anyway. We were very grateful to be able to host them for dinner also. They got to see the lovely holiday table runner and centerpiece they gave us in use. They also brought up Chourico from Gaspar's for Chourico and eggs in the morning. It should be very yummy!
