the year so far...

For only having had 10 people over on New Years Eve we had a really good time.

We drank a lot. I mostly stuck to Pama & Sprite with lime, and Patron shots but I did have some champagne with blackberries.

We had all kinds of snacks including cheese fondue, pizza bagels, egg rolls, and buffalo chicken dip. Great drunk food for sure.

We mostly just sat around and talked. The girls naturally migrated to the kitchen where we ended up spending half the night sitting on the floor and the guys naturally hung out around the food.

We were in bed by 3am. I miss the days where I would drink with friends till the sun came up and then go to Ihop, I hope those days are not over, but it has been quite some time since I’ve been truly drunk.

The next morning we cleaned house and hung out until Russ’s mom and sister arrived. We took them to The Container Store and to dinner at Gordon Biersh. Both were amazing as usual.

Saturday we took Russ's sister to The Smithsonian to see the American History Museum and the Museum of Natural History it was fun as always. The best part by far was the Written in Bone Exhibit. I'm a sucker for Anthropology, i fell in love with it in college, but realized it was not a good career move.

when we came home i made seared scallops in tomato basil orzo with mushrooms. i cooked it all in white wine and seafood stock. it was very yummy.

Sunday was a day to clean and go shopping, we had several gift cards we wanted to use and found nothing we wanted at Pottery Barn or William Sonoma. Actually i found several things i wanted but we could not agree on any of it. I really want THIS pan, but i can't really justify an $180.00 roasting pan. maybe one day.
