Happy New Year!

Just returned from our annual New Year's trip to New Buffalo, MI - as always, a fun trip!

Though it may seem strange to leave Chicago for a small Michigan town, we all quickly tired of the bar/party scene in the city... expensive all-you-can drink fete's where you spend all night bumping into strangers, screaming so your friends can hear you, and then can't get a cab home. Not my idea of fun. Plus the State Motto of Michigan is 'Great Lakes, Great Times' - what about that doesn't say fun!?

So every year we rent a vacation home in New Buffalo/ Union Pier and head out of town for a few days with friends. This year there were 8 of us & good times were had by all. The snow started during our New Year's Eve dinner & didn't let up even as we left on the 2nd, but that didn't hamper our plans much... especially since all we had on our schedule was some Wii tennis (I am one of the few people who seems to be as horrible at fake tennis as real tennis... sad...),
Cranium Pop 5 (sosososo much fun! If you haven't played, you must!), adult beverages, and football watching (go BLUE! Michigan actually won!).

Plus, the snow allowed us to frolic outside for a bit... I leave you with a trio of Snow Angels - a heck of a way to ring in the New Year!

Happy 2008!
