Default New Year's Eve

This year, DH and I are traveling with another couple to Key West to ring in the new year. It will be our second time doing this and it's a blast! We're staying on Duval so we'll be right in the middle of the fun. What is everyone else doing to welcome 2011?

That's what we're doing, too. Taking advantage of our empty nest for some peace and quiet. Our daughter is having a baby in Apirl and we've already committed to baby-sitting next year.
