We did something different this year. Instead of staying home like we always do, we booked a room at Embassy Suites to ring in the new year. The kids got to swim, drink Shirley temples while adults drank adults drinks and have the best night ever.
My friend Kasey who works in HR for embassy, did the sweetest thing. I had asked her if there was any way she could make sure we got on a higher floor for Jacob. I knew he would appreciate that. Well, she got us on the top floor, a hospitality suite and even sent up a fruit a cheese plate and beer. It was a great surprise.
I spent two hours in the spa and that made me feel like a new person. I got a pedicure and a facial. All the appointments for massages were booked but it was still great:)
All in all it was a perfect way to ring in a new year. Counting my three precious blessings for sure!
After we checked out we went to see the new Star Wars movie. It was good and I'm not a Star Wars fan at all. Sawyer was so exhausted from all the swimming and staying up late at the hotel that he didn't make it through the movie but the big kids enjoyed it!
All in all a good way to ring in the new year. I'm looking forward to a fresh start for 2016!
