The best laid plans...

...of mice and men often go astray.

Yup, that pretty much sums up our New Years Eve.

I did have best laid plans:

  • Make some yummy snacks
  • Watch New Years eve TV
  • Play games
  • I even had a neat thing I found on Pinterest where you have a new activity for each hour
  • Watch the ball drop
  • Bring in 2012 with a kiss from my hubby
But boy did those plans go astray...

I got sick!!

We spent Saturday morning enjoying family at my parent's house(my brother-in-law's parents, my grandparents, my parents, my sister, my brother-in-law, and my nephews). My Mom, as always, had an amazing spread. Breakfast burritos, fruit, donuts, juice - all of my favorites!!


I was not hungry at all!! So we went to lunch after and I ordered a salad but I was still not hungry! We got home and I took a 2 1/2 hour nap - Ryan pretty much had to pull me out of bed. I should have seen it coming.

We hung out a bit and I made two snacky foods. 'Lil smokies wrapped in bacon and taco cupcakes (recipe to follow - not for the smokies though, we decided they were awful!!)

But I hardly ate anything... (um hello me! get the hint right?)

9:30 rolled around and I got sick - maybe the flu, maybe something I ate? Still not sure. I will spare you the details but by 11:30 my belly was beyond empty and I was asleep.

No ball drop, no celebration, no kiss.

But I'm still excited for 2012 and actually am feeling very good today! I got my 2nd annual New Years Day massage (thanks Ryan for my Christmas present!) and have enjoyed spending a relaxing day with my hubby!

And as an added bonus I'm taking tomorrow off to watch Nebraska play in the Capital One Bowl! Go Huskers!

Happy 2012!!
