New Year's Eve Recap

For the last 11 years we have gotten together with friends on New Years Eve.  Although I was trying to remember but I think we may have missed one year due to having a baby. The people that we have spent that evening with have also changed but for the most part we have spent every New Year's Eve with friends.  For the last few years we have had people over to our house.  The last few we have done nothing but drink wine & play games.  The games vary from year to year.  We have played everything from board games, to Super Mario Brothers on the Wii, and then last year (and this year too) we are playing a card game called BOHNANZA!  If you haven't heard of this game PLEASE go and buy it (here it is on amazon).  If you like card games and playing games with friend this is so  much fun.

The premise of the game is that you are a bean farmer.  YEP! I said bean farmer! And you farm different types of beans.  Chili, Green, Blue, coffee, soy, you get the idea.  And you help others with their fields while you farm yours and try to get the most coins.  Now that may not sound like the most fun game but when you start saying things like "I'll trade you a stink for a chili" and get into trading and helping, you will be laughing so hard.   I would HIGHLY recommend it!

The best part about this year? We decided that we wanted to have a super laid back night.  We promised to wear comfy clothes (aka Yoga pants) and just eat snacky food.  Now you know I love getting dressed up and putting on two tons of make up.  But there is something to be said for a relaxing evening at home with friends.  Love our yearly tradition!

And just for fun here is a group picture which is also a tradition!  

Happy New Years!!
