New Year's Eve

So as I said in a previous post, New Year's eve was pretty low key, but we ended up having a great time! Adam and I met up with Derek and Andrea in Plano at Legacy Park (I think that's what it's called).

We started out at Naan, a Korean restaurant. I had never had "real" Korean food before, so I was excited to try something new. We ordered rice bowls first that had a bunch of veggies and beef on them. They were good, but nothing I would ever say that I HAD to have again. Then, we ordered 3 rolls of sushi. Adam and I have never been fans of the few pieces of sushi that we have tried, but we were with a skilled sushi picker-outer! Andrea LOVES sushi, so she knew exactly what to order. Adam and I ended up loving it too! I'm not saying that I'm going to go out and eat it all the time, but I will definitely eat it again!

We had 45 minutes after dinner, before our movie started, so we figured it was just enough time to go next door to Jasper's and get a drink. We ordered our little drinks, which Derek graciously offered to pay for, and they ended up being $10 a piece! RIDICULOUS!!! It made me feel very guilty that Derek bought my drink! Thanks Derek! I know mixed drinks can be expensive, but come on, $10 for a drink?!!? I guess that's why I'm a beer girl if I drink. You can't beat $3.00 and under for a drink!

After our drink, we went to The Angelica to see our movie. We saw Slumdog Millionaire. It was VERY good!! Definitely not a family movie, but a GREAT movie! It was my first Indian movie, so I wasn't aware of the dancing at the end their movies. I started cracking up when the credits started rolling, and ALL the cast members started dancing!

The movie let out at 11:45, so we had just enough time to go back to Naan and ring in the New Year. Every place that we went is on the same block. They were having a champagne toast at midnight, so they handed everyone a "glass" of champagne, along with hats and blow horns! We did the count down, kissed our significant other, hugged the rest of the group, and left. Adam was determined to be on the road before all the "crazies"!

We ended up seeing a couple of pretty intoxicated drivers, but luckily we were able to steer clear of them! It was a great night and a great way to bring in the New Year!

Me and Andrea when we first got to the restaurant
Decked out in our gear, waiting for the countdown
I definitely blew my horn MANY times before midnight
I don't know how, but I talked Adam in to putting on the silly hat. I even got a smile out of him, while he was wearing it!
Derek REFUSED to put on the hat!
