New Year’s Eve 2009 Recap

in All Posts

3… 2… 1 – HAPPY NEW YEAR!


About 1/3 of our wedding guests came in early to celebrate New Year’s with us, and we had a total blasty!


Before we left to meet up with everyone, I ate a filling dinner of mashed potatoes, BBQ chicken, and broc.  I knew I needed to stabilize my tummy!


We ended up going to a place in downtown Orlando called Wall Street Plaza, which is a huge outdoor plaza with 8 bars for 1 entry fee. 


We danced under the stars and had a lot to drink. 🙂

Me and my college girlfriends/some of the bridesmaids.


The boys, including dads.


Meghann and I…


Our friend Katie, Future Husband, my sister-in-law and her boyfriend.


My mother with one of my bridesmaids…


We were dancing and having fun…. until I dropped Meghann’s camera on the brick floor.  It’s dead!


I think she’s going to get it fixed under warrantee, so if not, I will be replacing it! She’ll be blogging with her mom’s in the meantime, though. I felt realllllllllllly bad.


When we got home, I ate some Santa Fe Casserole (sorry, no picture) and fought over mashed potatoes with Future Husband. 🙂


I woke up at 8 AM to talk to a freakishly awake Meghann (she stayed the night) and had two slices of PB and jam toast.


And then I went back to sleep for TWO hours.  Future Husband served me a bowl of Grape Nuts + sliced banana around 11:30 and suddenly I feel MUCH better!


I hope you guys had a Happy New Year’s, too!  Can you believe it’s 2009? I can’t believe my wedding is in TWO DAYS! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. SO excited.

    Looks like quite an evening. I love your outfit, too. Is it a dress or a skirt and top? It’s fabulous whatever it is.

    Oh and I think it’s super fun to have your wedding near New Year’s – you had almost all your favorite people with you to celebrate twice!

    Have a wonderful fist day of the year Miss (soon to be Mrs.) Caitlin!

    Caitlin, Happy 2009! Looks like you guys had a great time, and I’m glad you’re having so much fun in the days leading up to your wedding. A lot of girls seem to get so stressed out that they don’t enjoy any of the festivities. So, keep calm and continue to have fun.
    PS – I love a good nap after b’fast 🙂

  • Marissa January 1, 2009, 1:35 pm

  • Mags January 1, 2009, 2:30 pm

    Ha. Seriously, anon? Comments like that are so ridiculously immature that no one, especially the beautiful bride, could ever be offended. Grow up!

  • Mica January 1, 2009, 2:33 pm

    You and FH look so cute in your New Year’s getups.

    happy new year!!!

    okay crazy question – but did sarah go to dr phillips high school?

  • Meghann January 1, 2009, 8:39 pm

    I dropped my camera off at Best Buy today. He said that if the damage isn’t covered under the warrenty then they will send it back, otherwise he said it should be fixed in 2 weeks. So here’s crossing our fingers!!!

    By the way I am having random memories from last night coming back to me. I’m a teeny bit embarrassed, but I really did have a great time. Thanks for inviting me out for New Years! I can’t wait to party it up at your wedding! 🙂

  • Bridget January 1, 2009, 8:59 pm

    Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!! 2 Days!!! I can’t believe it!! Your NYE looked SO fun!! Mine was fun, but so LAME compared to yours…that’s it, no more lame-o new years for me next year!

  • Caitlin (see bride run) January 2, 2009, 6:12 am

    mandy – hahah no she didnt! she’s from pennsylvania. but she’s one of those people who look like a lot of other people i think, because people always ask me if they know her from such and such.

  • seeleelive (for the love of peanut butter) January 5, 2009, 6:15 am

    congratulations caitlin. Sorry I’ve been MIA, I just returned back from break. You are a truly beautiful bride!! I wish you the best!
