What a night!

New Years Eve definitely proved to be an adventure!

The actual adventure part was trying to GET to our hotel downtown. The lot was full where we were staying, causing us to pay for parking a street away and carry our luggage around, then when we finally arrived in the hotel...there were at least 30 people in front of us checking in. Needless to say, we completely missed dinner with our friends. It was fine though, the group was VERY large! So, Caleb and I ate a corn dog and funnel cake in the cold...and rather enjoyed ourselves.

Finally, our friends all came out and we could get the night started with them. We headed to a fun restaurant down by the river and grabbed some appetizers, then hit up fountain square where we'd end our night in a countdown ringing in the new year. Little did one of my best friends know, she was getting proposed to as the clock began to countdown at 3...2...1...


She was beside herself. She was so shocked and just kept screaming "IS THIS REAL?!?!", then of course, said yes. Angie is one beautiful lady, and I'm beyond thankful I've met her. We've been friends for only a few years now, but it feels like a lifetime. She is one of the greatest friends I've ever made, and I'm so excited for this new journey she and her FIANCE' are on together!!

The four ladies. The gorgeous gal next to me is ALSO getting married soon, and we're in her wedding on February 1st! Can't wait!


All in all, it was one fantastic night. I very much enjoyed our first holiday season together...and can't wait for many many more!! I hope you all had a safe new years! Lets make 2014 the best yet.
