Default NYE Land Lovers

Well, I guess if you are reading this post, you are like me; land lovers this New Years Eve. We have cruised 2 NYE cruises and enjoyed them. But due to family get togethers, I am a land lover. My plans are to sit in our hot tub around mid-night and watch the numerous neighbors' fireworks over the golf course as they light up the new year sky. What are your plans this non-cruise NYE?

Nothing better than New Years Eve . . .

Truly wish I had some interesting plans, but still recovering from the flu.

Having some family over so no one has to drive.
A friend brought a really nice bottle of sparkling wine to our 4th of July bbq which we have saved for NYE.

Really wish I was going to be on a Caribbean cruise for NYE, but it's not happening. Instead, I will spend a nice evening on the couch with my beautiful DD, and a few glasses of wine. Ahhhhhhh..... The weather here in New England is supposed to get really nasty. Really makes me wish I were on a cruise, but it wasn't meant to be. Grrrrrrrr!!!!!! lol

It's supposed to snow here so I'm thinking movies and wine at home.
