    FI and I got engaged at Buckingham Fountain on NYE last year so I think I am going to try and convince him to go downtown for the fireworks again. I hate going to bars this night because the cover and drinks are ridiculous. None of our friends are hosting parties this year.

    For the past three years FI and I have gone on vacation to somewhere warm for NYE, but we couldn't justify spending the money since we just bought  a condo and need to save for our wedding/honeymoon. So, we're just going out to eat and spending the night at home, celebrating our engagement-anniversary haha which is Jan. 5th!

    We're still debating on doing a bar-package or not...any suggestions?

    We typically don't do anything crazy or exciting for NYE b/c it always gets so hyped up and then is usually a let down.

    We are not doing anything this year....a couple of years ago we did a candlelight bowling thing with a few other friends of ours ( I think it was $50 per couple for bowling, eating and open bar)..i would like to do that again, but we need to save some money after the wedding in July, honeymoon, and of course, moving into a new house in November !!!

    We don't have any plans yet and none of our friends are hosting anything this year. We can't afford to go to a big bar thing because of the wedding/honeymoon costs. Maybe we will just go to dinner?

    My fiance's best man and his wife are hosting the 3rd annual 'random t-shirt contest' party at their house.  Always fun and hoping to win this year, I tied last year!

    I love Mike and Joe...totally reminds me of my college days!!!

    We are probably just staying in. I think I might go to costco and get some giant crab legs and make a nice candlelit dinner for the future hubby since he will have to work that day :(
