happy new year!
Wishing everyone a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!
Tonight I am going to celebrate New Year’s Eve with St. Elmo and his parents. This will be the first meeting of the ‘in-loves’ (In-loves is a term coined by a co-worker to describe your boyfriend’s/girlfriend’s parents).
St. Elmo is adorably more nervous than I am. His parents have been bombarding him with questions about me as of late and extended an offer to ‘come by’ on NYE. They want to meet me. He also wants me to meet them. It’s been a long time since I’ve met the parents. I’m not really worried, as parents generally love me. I come across as super cute and sweet, with all sarcasm and devilish ways safely hidden away 😉
I’m actually looking forward to this. Dinner will be at 8PM. I’m bringing dessert and champagne. I baked two kinds of cheesecake bars – blueberry crumble and cherry chocolate chip. I have a bottle of Charles Heidsieck chilling in the fridge, ready to go. I’ve done muted, natural looking makeup. I’ll wear jeans with a cute flowy, flower patterned top.
I will report back tomorrow how meeting the in-loves went.
P.S. when I was at my mom’s she wanted me to bake cookies. I didn’t want to bake cookies. She then said, “How do you think St. Elmo will feel knowing that his wife won’t bake cookies?” I cocked my head at her and asked her when did I get married. She gave a small laugh and told me she meant ‘girlfriend’… yeah… right… sure you did. Wishful thinking, my mother.
UPDATE, Jan 2: Meeting the “in-loves” went very well. They are darling people. Welcomed me with open arms into their home. We had a nice dinner and laughed a lot. Drank lots, though didn’t get drunk (just a bit giggly and happy). Lots of pictures were taken. My desserts were a hit – Yay. I adored them and hope the feeling was mutual. St. Elmo will get the low down later today. Meanwhile, yesterday was the Outback Bowl. St. Elmo and I watched Penn State lose in ugly fashion to Florida, but at least the game wasn’t a complete embarrassing blow out like the other Big Ten games – Yikes.
