I will do the same thing as every year. Watching Dinner for One, and going to bed. Maybe waking up my daughter at midnight to see the fireworks.
That is cool you have a plan that you enjoy! Happy New Year Nicole!
There are lots of fun New Year’s Even events in Tucson, My husband and I often attend one at a resort that offers dinner, drinks, dancing and a band with a room for the night. Las Vegas would be a great place to spend New Year’s Eve too.
Sounds great! Vegas was a blast! Happy New Year!!:)
They sound like good nights. Personally I find NYE armature night. People go out, get hammered to early and there is generally a vibe of ‘organised fun’. Plus I hate that you have to pay to get into pubs that you generally don’t have to. Houseparties are the way forward! No queues for the toilet is always a bonus on NYE…
Haha..so much truth you speak here! These are great points you make! Vegas is always a crazy place..no amateurs there..It is always where I enjoy to go! 🙂 Happy New Year!
Parties look good…here in Croatia we don’t have so many choices:(
Croatia looks amazing! It is a place I really want to visit! Happy New Year!
Thats a lot of parties. I usually stay home as too many drunks are out there on New Years eve.
It can get very crazy out there! Happy New Year Tara! 🙂
I would love to see the Harbor Cruise NYE Fireworks Long Beach. I will be saving it for next year.
Sounds great! Hope you had a great NYE! Happy New Year!
I usually celebrate NYE at home. This year will probably be no different. Looks like there will be some fun happening
Hope you had a great NYE! Happy New Year Veronica!
