It's New Year's Eve! See ya later, 2013. You were a hoot!
Jayme and Allie came over around 4 to set the place up for partying. Before they got there, Emily, Michael, and I stopped at Spec's to pick up the drinky drink. Part of the mod-themed party involved a make-your-own Old Fashioned bar. I made one, and the thing took me two hours to drink. SHEESH. Caramel Appletinis were a huge hit as well! I think we went through nearly an entire bottle of caramel vodka.
As we got closer and closer to midnight, I got more and more antsy. I kept thinking about the ring I've been hiding in my closet for the past week or so. I finally got it out and was instantly paranoid about the unusually large, very specific shape bulging from my back pocket, too small to be a wallet, too big to go unnoticed--at least that's what I was thinking.
We did the countdown to 2013 and all that goes with it, and while Emily gave Amanda a hug I snuck down onto my knee. It seems that the paranoia was all in my head after all! It was several minutes before most of the people at the party even knew what was going on, but in the end, she said yes! Even Amanda was surprised enough to cry. YES!
I'd write more, but I've already said too much! The rest of the party happened in 2014, so I'll see you there.
