Happy New Year!

A wonderful New Year's Eve. . .

Stacy came for a last minute surprise visit to Boston from Kentucky on her way back to London. So we started the day with mimosas and cinnamon rolls and laid around for hours just relaxing and catching up!

When we finally got up and moving we decided to treat ourselves to manicures. I went w/ my favorite winter color, OPIs "Lincoln Park After Dark" while Stacy said, "I'll have clear." No way my dear was my response. I figure if you are going to have someone else do your nails and pay for it you might as well get some color - especially on New Year's Eve. So she picked a fun light purple/gray type of color and it looked great!

We headed out to Newbury Street for our dinner at Tapeo. It was an unusual 50 degrees in Boston yesterday so we hung out for a few minutes before heading inside.

Jenny met us at the restaurant for dinner. Stacy and I enjoyed some delicious Cava Sangria which was yummy and then we all ate Tapas for dinner. We had a great table and it was a fun and relaxing dinner. We all enjoyed chatting and catching up after not being together since the summer before Stacy moved to London.

The newly single gals toasting to a happy and healthy 2011. They both faced many unexpected changes in 2010 but handled them with grace and humor. Here's to an amazing year for both of them with many new adventures to come!

After dinner we said our goodbyes to Jenny and Stacy and I took a walk down Newbury St toward the Boston Common. We thought about going to check out the ice sculptures and then watch the fireworks but we got sidetracked into Stepahnie's on Newbury. Surprisingly it was not very crowded and we scored some comfy seats near the fireplace. We enjoyed a delicious "Winter White" martini which was pear flavored. Neither of us thought we would make it until midnight (when talking about it earlier in the day) but we did and toasted the New Year along with everyone else at midnight (and with free champagne)!

HAPPY 2011!!!

May you always have work for your hands to do.

May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
