Country Roads, Take Me Home!

Danny's Long Awaited Return to Cali

So finally after a year of being gone, boot camp, A school, deployment and work its time for danny to come back to California to visit his friends and family!
Of course everyone has been pestering me about when danny will be home, when he will be back and when he is gonna visit so now its here and the excitement is all very flattering.

I know Danny appreciated being missed while he was gone too! Unfortunately he was only able to be home about a week and a half before return to the sea but we managed to fit in so much fun stuff.

Family dinners and friends gatherings, wine tasting and even an 80's concert we love to go see when possible....

It seemed like we didn't stop moving the whole week and a half, but we managed to see everyone who made an effort to contact us. Overall I think it was a very productive home vacation trip.

I love you so much honey and Im glad that you got to come home!!

NYE 2011 VIP Style

VIP Section, Drinks and Food!

This year we decided to do things a little different than years past. Since it was a little more momentous than usual with Danny's homecoming just a week before we actually ended up getting VIP passes to one of the clubs around our hotel.

Even though it wasnt Vegas or New York for new years we felt pretty cool about our plans. Usually for new years we end up going to a local bar, party or street fair, so this was a nice change of plans.

We knew we wanted something close to the hotel (and who could ask for closer than one block away) and something fun and relaxing. That's exactly what we got this year with our choice of Peabody's.

Actually it was a pretty chill night, lots of fun with unlimited drinks, food and shots, our own section for the VIP members with tables for us to chill at with party favors and champagne, and of course the awesome dance floor that the club always has.

The night was all inclusive and we ended up watching the ball drop over time square for the countdown to the new year.

The champagne was corked and the screams rang out to bring in the 2011. Cheers all around and everyone was ecstatic.

We ended up closing down the bar and walking home to our hotel for some much need sleep before morning began.

I think it was a good kick to the new years and tribute to 2010.
