Y2K + 10.


gosh, was that whole Y2K mayhem really ten years ago?


where were you new year's eve 1999?

and more importantly, did you party like it was 1999?

i did.

i think.

i was much younger then.

and dumber.

but at least i could stay up until midnight.

not so much now.


regardless of how you decide to celebrate...

happy 2010!


and although i know only a handful of people will get this long-standing inside joke {you know who you are}...what would new year's eve be without this classic line:

"are you serious? okay, happy new year!"

yep, still funny.

Wow Jill, you and your family are just so adorable! And yes I did party it up in 99, not so much now. It is going to be a chore to stay up that late tonight! Happy New Year!

ooooo thanks for this post! You made me remember back to B4Y2K.

I was with a bunch of YSA and my fiance (my now hubby) watching the fireworks.

Thanks for bringing back the memories! ;)

Happy New Year!

I had a new baby freshly home from the NICU, and I was in bed by 8:30 as I was so exhausted. Everyone else stayed up to see if the world would fall apart at the stroke of 12, but all I wanted was to sleep! I got up to tinkle in the middle of the night, and the toilet still had water, so I figured we must be okay!

Best of luck staying awake!

Ohhhh Jill,
I'm so sad I didn't read your email before New Year's but that just made my night. I needed it! I'm up late right now not because I'm partying but because I'm up with a sick child. Yes, how 10 years changes things.
For the record, I was able to stay up with the kids New Years Eve! We managed to keep the party going until 1:00AM-and yes, I am serious!!!!!!!! Okay, hope you had a Happy New Year's Eve!!!!!!!!!!
Love ya! Thanks for the memories!!!!!!!!!
