Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone! 

I hope that everyone had a wonderful time ringing out 2012 and bringing in 2013.
My mom kept the kids for us on New Years Eve, so the hubby and I went out to eat.  Neither one of us could decide what we wanted to eat....but here we are before our date night:

We finally decided to get pizza from our favorite pizza place.  J always has to have this pizza before he leaves for any period of time and he has to have it as soon as he returns.  The picture does not do this pizza any justice:

After dinner we came back home and watched the fireworks our neighbors were shooting.  It was a fun low-key evening.

This morning we slept in....probably the first time we have slept this late since oh, um, college?  ha!  I made one of our new favorite breakfast dishes - Cinnamon Butter Crescents.  I found the recipe on Pinterest, but I have tweaked it some.  I will share the recipe soon, promise.  Anyway, I made the crescents then we ate breakfast in bed. 

This afternoon, we went over to my mom's house for a traditional new year's meal.  We ate...a lot...black eyed peas (for good luck), greens (for money), mashed potatoes, corn, breaded pork chops, cornbread, and finished the meal with brownies and ice cream...hello I need some elastic pants. 

Happy 2013!
