Holy smokes this year flew by!!! Like woah….. But then again, doesn’t every year feel like that? I was so happy I went home to Boca Raton to see my family this past weekend for New Year’s Eve. It was a really nice time we were all able to spend together. Now let me just tell you this…the past 8 years I have spent this holiday either single or “as if I were single.” The boyfriend I was dating would always seem to be like unavailable on this night. Talk about really charming! LOL. I drove after the Cape Coral market ending around 1pm and arrived in Boca at 4:30pm. I picked the best day to travel too…. bumper to bumper traffic the entire ride there. But I wasn’t going to miss it.
Too bad I didn’t take a pic with my good friend Laura. She is such a doll. I stopped on over her parent’s place just after my arrival. It’s always so much fun catching up with her. It’s as if no time has past. I tried some delicious cheese dip Laura and offered me to bring on back to my parents home, and so I did. You can’t really say no to Laura. haha.
That night for dinner mom and dad brought in PF Changs- Zach and my favorite Chinese restaurant. As they know it’s like this on going joke every-time they mention Pf Changs because when we were living in Pensacola, Florida the closest PF Changs restaurant was in Destin, Florida about a good 2.5 hour drive. But this one day we were really craving some authentic Chinese food so we got in the car despite the long drive and went to get our food.
Thanks so much to Davina for bringing the fun to the NYE party! (see the photos below!) We all had a blast because of you. Harrison and Davina have been dating for a little over 2 years now and are going strong. Wanna know when Harrison and D became official? It’s pretty cute! The same day as Charlie Takes an Adventure launched, Nov. 30 2015.
A little blurry but still cute!
The girls! YAY!!!
Bae and I. I was so glad he came after a long day at the office and having to drive solo for 4 hours. But hey, he sure is a trouper and I really got a good one. <3
