Happy New Year 2019

It's 2019! I want that year to sound like something special, but it really sounds so ordinary, no different than 2018, or 2017....one of those years that just blends. I think 2020 will feel more monumental. 

But still, we had a great new year. Just like we did last year, we went to a party at our local bowling alley. I guess that doesn't sound too exciting, but it's such a blast. There's unlimited food, drinks, chocolate fountain, bowling, and a DJ playing awesome music. Between friends and neighbors, Shannon ended up booking four lanes for all of us--21 people total. Our first game or two of bowling was taken more seriously, but toward 1:00 a.m., our bowling devolved to singing and dancing and gutter balls and total ridiculousness. Pretty sure the human body wasn't designed to bowl for more than two hours.

My pictures came out dark and blurry, so here are a few of Shan's:

 Shan & Jeremy (he's such a goofball!)

Me and Cass (my awesome niece), with Elijah & Dylan sort of in there too.

Trinity face-painting her boyfriend, Caleb

 Me, like, "Will you put the damn camera away?"

 Trinity & Caleb (they are so darn cute)

I have more but I don't want to violate friends'/neighbors' privacy by posting them. 

Happy New Year to you and yours!


  1. I love bowling!! So fun! ^_^

    Maybe it's because I like odd numbers, but I'm way too excited about this year. And I can't wait for a certain book to come out. :D (cough, cough)

    1. Pinewood Falls? I can't wait either!

      (Okay, okay) :P

      Happy 2019 Krystal! It's gonna be a great and odd year. <3

  2. Happy New Year!

    Your NYE looks like so much fun. I was in bed around 7:30pm, since I had to work at 4am on New Year's Day. I'm like old folks about needing enough sleep!!

    On another note, I wish I could get Matt to go bowling. He's terrible at it and so he hates it, so we don't go. As an aside, I found out that while he was in Missouri on a business trip this summer, he went bowling with some of his co-workers/employees. Not going to lie, I was kind of ticked.

    1. 4 a.m on New Year's Day? That's insane! One of these days you're gonna have to tell me what the heck your job is now. Right now I'm leaning toward secret agent. ;)

      Clint is good at EVERY thing requiring aim, except for bowling. I can tell it wounds his pride a little. But he still enjoys it, and luckily most of us sucked so it's not like his lack of talent for it stood out. Bummer that Matt finally went bowling without you! I like bowling because it's one of those relaxing sports. Between rolling balls, you get to hang out, chat, snack, etc.

      Happy New Year!
