Welcome 2014


Well it looks like the New Year has successfully been rung in 'round the globe! We celebrated New Year's Eve with a stack of my made-from-scratch blueberry pancakes and an everlasting game of Monopoly. Patrick and I survived the latter with the help of a bottle of vino. When the clock struck midnight the three of us made a hullabaloo to welcome in 2014.

So...I wanna know how you rang in the New Year? Leave a comment below and next Wednesday, January 8th, I'll draw a name and gift the winner this dancing clock collage. No worries if you live outside the USA....I'll ship it anywhere in the world ;)

Happy New Year my friends!

  1. Stayed awake to hear fireworks. Max (my 13 yr old dachshund) wore his party hat and barked! Today it's the traditional black-eyed peas, turnip greens and sweet potato meal! Happy New Year to all!

  3. We live in the country where fireworks are the norm. The show/display is always available...for free...just off of our upper story deck! Nana, my dogs don't like the pops AT ALL! Happy New Year Suzanna. Every time I see a lithograph childs dish, I remember reading one of my blogs...that you shared a ton of them with. Youre a Good One! Laura ...hastypearl

  5. Happy New Year Suzanna to you and yours! Your collage is so fun!!
    We were 5 adults and 5 kiddies for dinner and 'watching the ball drop' last night. They came with their dogs as well! The dogs stole the show- they were so comical. Featuring Louie the pug dominating two Weimaraner sisters six times his size. My cheeks hurt from laughing. Very fun evening.
    Wishing everyone all good things in 2014! Elizabeth

  9. I drank 1 and a half glasses of wine and watched former frat boys get hammered at a friend of a friend's huge house. It was...interesting, to say the very least. An experience, nonetheless.

  11. Suzanna, I was disappointed, but rather liked staying home for a change. (I can do without the cleaning though) :0

    I've read your blog from cover to cover, but is there a way that I can get notified by email of new posts? I try and check every couple of days, but it would be great if there was a way to automatically be notified.

    Sounds like everyone's holidays were great though! :)

    You're in MO, I imagine you're snowed in too?? We're in St. Louis and not pleased with the weather at all. I'm very worried about anyone (human or animal) that does not have shelter.

    Stay safe!
