We had so much fun ringing in the new year last night at The Avett Brothers concert. This was definitely a NYE that we will remember! We had fun sending 2011 out in style!
Here we are before dinner and the concert...
A few cell phone shots from the show.
This 3 hours show was pretty darn awesome.
They are so so talented.
About a million balloons fell at midnight...
And then we came home today to eat our black eyed peas! I don't like collards, but I sure love black eyed peas. With the right recipe, they're pretty delicious.
I browned some sausage, threw in a can of rinsed black eyed peas and a can of rotel, and then ate it with fritos. I love this dish! My mom makes it more like a dip and buys the frito scoops, but I'm ok eating it with a fork. Such a healthy way to welcome 2012!
Now it's back to reality. We have to go back to school tomorrow, which makes me sad because this break has been wonderful, but not long enough! And just because I'm curious...if you're a teacher or have kids in school, is your school system going back on January 2? Or are they waiting to go back on the 3rd?
