For the past 5 years J and I have celebrated the New Year by going to Downtown Seattle to watch the firework show at the Space Needle. We have celebrated in years past with fancy dinners and nice hotel rooms with views of the firework show. This year we both were not feeling in the mood to deal with the crowds, spend the money and both agreed a low key night was what we needed.
We tried to book reservations at our favorite Italian Restaurant but they were already booked so we settled with The Spaghetti Factory (I really wanted pasta - as it will be cut out of my New Years diet). As always, the food was delicious and put me in a carb coma the rest of the evening!
We came home and enjoyed some drinks and played a few games of Yahtzee with my family. It was fun, relaxing and I was able to be in my sweats as comfy as can be!
I cannot believe another year has gone by.
While John and I were at dinner last night we discussed New Years Resolutions. He said that he had thought about it and thought it was best to have three resolutions - a resolution for your marriage, resolution for yourself and a resolution for yourself professionally. I loved this.
My resolution for my marriage: To work out more together. To buy a house. We communicate well but I always think I can work on being a better listener - I tend to interrupt often.
My resolution for myself: This is the year for me to work on me. I want to continue to loose weight and build my confidence while doing so. I also want to start swimming again.
My resolution for myself professionally: Finish school. I have been working at getting my paralegal degree for quite some time now and I just need to get myself motivated and finish it!
