I must say ( and I think this is the 1st time I have ever said this... ) that I am really enjoying this winter we are having. Usually, I hate the cold and it is so depressing..... but I have decided that this year I am going to enjoy each and every season....winter, spring, summer, and fall but also each season of my life! It probably is helping knowing that we are leaving in 2 days for our cruise!!! :)

We got to choose 2 different cheeses. We got the original and the spinach cheese dip. It came with bread, chips, veggies, and apples. Yummmm!!
Our dinner was really good. They bring you out a plate of raw meat & veggies and you use these skewers to dip it in either chicken broth or oil if you want it fried. It was pretty cool at first but I will admit that I was getting tired of dipping every single thing and you have to wait like 2 minutes for it to cook! After a few minutes I was just wishing it was all already cooked so I could just eat it! Ha! It was really good though....
......and then they brought out the dessert!!!!!! Oh my GOODness!!! They brought out plates full of brownies, cheesecake, pound cake, strawberries, bananas, rice crispy treats, and marshmallows! We also got 2 different kinds of chocolates to dip all of it in and we chose one that was 1/2 white chocolate and 1/2 dark chocolate.....the other one was my FAV :) it was milk chocolate with crunchy peanut butter all melted together! I am a sucker for anything with chocolate and peanut butter together! I definitely want to go back with my hubby just for dessert!
We had SOOO much fun and took so many pics! I am 100% positive that our waitress thought we were crazy because we took so many but we don't care :)

I have been unhappy with our bedroom ever since we have been here (until now!)..... Trust me, you can ask my husband how many times I have moved things around and moved things in and out! Unfortunately, the best place for our bed is in front of a window. I tried to resist it for a long time but nothing else was working out.....I wasn't happy with that.......I wasn't happy with the color of the walls because it just seemed soooo dark......I wasn't happy with the drapes or the quilt......or my nightstands......
The closet doors have been a major issue since we moved into this house. They originally were the kind that slide back & forth but those things drove me absolutely crazy so I took them down one day. We had a curtain up there for a while....but I got tired of that too so I took it down. So we went forever without anything. Getting new doors made a HUGE difference in this room and made me one happy lady!!!
Oh, and we cannot forget this! I got this at Target and it was love at first sight..... :)

Me & my hubby :)
After we ate, we went back to their house to play Mexican train dominoes and watch the ball drop. This picture is sooo funny! I had just fed Aiden and he fell asleep on my shoulder. He was very comfy!
Happy New Year!!
