In order to get this (and more goodies from the Cheesecake Factory)
we had to brave New Year's Eve traffic here:
It's generally a place associated with images like this
but did you know that it also offers views like this?
Ugh! I totally meant to take this photo of the bicycles leaning against the tree. I came home to discover this on my memory card. Yipes. That's what I get for snapping photos as I drive.
Anyway, it's New Year's Eve here, and we're all about the new.
New shirt (Gap). The daughter is a must-have accessory.
New shoes (Simple). Did you know that these are made out of hemp, recycled water bottles, and discarded tires? For $55, you too can wear your global conscience on your feet!
New challenges. Check 'em out here.
New explosives. Yep. Rob and Z loaded up on firecrackers and other loud and sparkly flammables and are outside right now adding pollution to the already pink -- nope, make that red -- air. My inhaler and I are spending New Year's Eve indoors, thank you very much.
Here's to breathing easily in the new year! Have a good one.
