Happy New Year!
Our new year’s eve was pretty fun with Catherine and David. Good times and good friends. We ended up keeping it low key which is always nice. We went to a great little local brew pub restaurant in Mt. Vernon, called the Brewer’s Art. It was nice and we all made a champaign toast at midnight. The food was amazing. Their rosemary garlic fries are to die for. And David’s sea bass was pretty tasty. I do remember the beer being much better, but it was still better than many. Maybe I’ll try a different brew next time. And somehow we ended up at Jimmy’s twice this weekend with Catherine and David. But someday we’ll make it in to the Blue Moon Cafe again! Damn their 9 tables! And the strange, yet rather funny thing that happened was when Catherine pulled the refrigerator door off. She’s friggin’ superwoman. Yes, there was a huge THUD and there it was on the kitchen floor. Amazing! Luckily it’s sorta back on now. Nothing better than electrical tape to fix things.
Other than that, our good friends Tolya & Otto in San Francisco are also pregnant. She’s about 5 weeks behind us. And in other good news, Mike & Laurie and Jessica & Scott got engaged! Congrats to all of them!
A great year is ahead of us all.
Oh yeah, and our 12 hour open house was a success. Other than us having a huge hangover the morning after with out ingesting any alcohol, it was a great time. I guess preparing and entertaining really wore us out, more than we had expected. But it literally lasted from 2:00pm to 2:05am, strangely as jokingly planned. There were some weird lulls, but it peaked, as I expected, after around 9pm. Seeing Annette, Billy and Elise was awesome. They are so cute and their baby is rocking like Dokken. I love how they bring the baby everywhere. We’re so excited they are moving back to Baltimore later in the year. Emily’s friend Morgan from NY brought her sister and a bunch of her friends from LA and they were totally funny. Morgan and her sister actually grew up like 5 blocks from where we live. LA people are awesome, but totally a different breed. And seeing Lara was awesome too as I can’t remember the last time I had seen her in person.
