Wordful Wednesday - New Year's Eve

I looked way better in the beginning of the night than I did at the end.

Jason and I traveled to Iowa on New Year's Eve and gathered with a group of friends.  A party bus was rented to take us from place to place.  The bus itself wasn't bad.  The driver was cool and the party elements of the bus were pretty stellar.  But it hadn't been that cold since eighteen-hundred-and-froze-to-death.  The bus couldn't keep us with the freezing temps so we all huddled and snuggled in blankets.

The bus took us to four bars and we spent about an hour at each one.  All had a band playing.  I like to dance, even if it's as bad as hot fudge melting on ice cream.  There's no shame in my game.  

I lost pounds from dancing and shivering, but it was a perfect night to ring in the New Year!

Alaina's given me friends by proxy.  She moved to Iowa in July and I'm up there at least once a month, if not more.  Her people have become my people.

How did you celebrate the New Year?

What an awesome way to ring in the new year, even if it was super cold! I've never been on a party bus, but it looks like a real blast!
