Crazy wonderful start to 2012

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

I had the BEST New years EVER! At first we really didn't have any plans, maybe stop out for a drink or two at a local place we like and just have a pretty relaxed evening. No more wild times like in my early 20's. A friend of ours invited us over for dinner and games. There was a small group of us and it was very nice to get together. They ended up playing some Dance game on the Kinect that was absolutely hilarious to watch. Yes watch.
It is disappointing to me that in some ways I'm fearless and in some ways I'm crippled by self consciousness. They kept trying to get me up there to dance but I just can't follow routines well and was so afraid of just looking like a total loser. Dancing and singing are two things that I'm just... stunted by. I can't break out of that self conscious shell. If I'm feeling good I can dance at a dance club with a big group... but not just me dancing infront of a group of friends. It looked like they burned many calories LOL! And there I sat on the couch storing mine for winter. Anyway after that we decided to go out to ring in the new year.
We went to a bar and it SUCKED. No one was into the New Years thing, it was totally lame. Usually New Years is a happy excited vibe... this was like just another night at the bar for these people!
At about 12:30 our friend suggested one last place. We were pretty much ready to go home but figured what the heck. We go to this last place get a round a drinks and a little raffle ticket thing. Well each drink you buy you get a ticket to win their big prize. We had 2 drinks each (so 4 total tickets between my husband and I) and decided to stick around for the 2am drawing. Behind us was a table of drunkedy drunkards with a whole mountain of tickets!!!! We just sorta looked at their pile... looked at our 4 and shrugged. 2 am finally comes (yawn, sure am getting old) and they call out the winning ticket number........................
....................... and it was one of ours!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOLY CRAP WE WON THE BIG PRIZE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What was the big prize?????? Well this is the crazy part! My whole motivation to lose weight... going to Vegas?!?! WE got a trip to VEGAS!!!!! BEST NEW YEARS EVAH!!!!!!! Can you tell I'm a little stoked????????? TOTALLY!!!!!! I can't really say this is bad... but the one downside is that we have to use it by the end of March... which means I won't be able to really look like I want... but I'm totally not going to let that deter me from my exuberance about it!!!
2012 is looking FANTASTIC!

    There's nothing stopping you from going again in the future when you're more in the shape you want to be too. ^_~

    And with those dancing games? Very few people I've known expect to do well at them. The goofs are part of the fun and often hilarity ensues with laughing at ourselves. Not to mention ... stepping with the wrong foot or making the wrong move doesn't burn any less calories - if you're up and doing, you're being active. I hope you give one of those games a try sometime.

    Congratulations! I hope you have an amazing time!

    P.S. It's funny to watch because people mess up and it's silly! Try it next time! :)
