Unfortunately the Harts were under the weather the last few days of 2012. Jon came down with a fever/throat thing and so I automatically caught it too (only without the fever and adding a wicked cough). We were happy to ring in the New Year with our bff's, Justin and Leah. The night was perfect and low key. Leah served us a delicious dinner and we spent the last few hours of 2012 playing all sorts of games- Minute to Win It (hysterical! See Leah's previous blog post about it here), Taboo, Scattergories, and Ghetto-opoly. Midnight came and went and we ended up staying up until 3am, we totally got a second wind! Oh and I can't forget to mention we devoured a few wanna-be Butterfingers and a whole sugar free chocolate pudding pie.
(champagne and Fresca was my drink of choice)
Check out the chops
Ernie was invited to the sleepover shindig and had a blast...he was up as late as we were.
New Years Day started late and it was one of the most relaxing days I've had in a while. After breakfast, we cuddled up on the sofa to watch Cedar Rapids and although it was quite hysterical, I enjoyed a little snoozer-oo. The 4 of us had been talking about doing an Iron Chef- Hot Dog edition for over a year now and finally got around to doing it! We had a late lunch of: mac N cheese cups with hot dogs, hot dog corn chowder and hot dog enchiladas. I was mildly grossed out at the end but the guys were all over it!
We played more games, watched 30 Minutes Or Less and finally called it a night at 8pm. Jon and I drove home and plopped ourselves on the couch and watched football for the next 4 hours.
Yesterday we slept in, almost until noon and ran a few errands. It was such a gorgeous day (60 and sunny) so we took Ernie to the lake park that wraps around downtown Austin. As we were walking in I asked Jon "do you think we will see any other Frenchies today?" and we ended up seeing 4! One was the cutest 4 month old chunk, I was in heaven! Ernie had a blast and was completely tanked for the rest of the night.
I finally got around to making something with the silouettes I made of Ernie a while back. I bought an old shadowbox for $1 at Salvation Army and painted it, added some rosettes and scrapbook paper and boom...
While I was crafting, Jon was creating this....
No more beard or stache!
As much as I loved both (and I did! I thought they were hysterical), I was ready for my clean shaven hubby. He's getting a haircut today and I can't wait to see him after work! I love that baby face!
So far, 2012 has been nothing but relaxing and enjoyable for us! I hope you can say the same. Happy New Year!
