Oh is the holiday break already over?! It went by entirely too fast, am I right?

Today it's back to work, back to regular routine. I guess I'm a little settled knowing that I am going to be back on a regular schedule again. I just had way too much fun staying out late every night, sleeping in late and being able to see people whom I haven't seen in a long time!

My New Years was without a doubt the absolute best! We went downtown to hear
The GILLS play at Hopjacks and take part in Pensacola's new tradition..."The Pelican Drop". Strange, I know. The name and mascot of Pensacola's baseball team is "The Pelicans". So, this year they began a new tradition of dropping a light up Pelican to bring in the New Year. It was a little chessy but we had a blast downtown! They blocked off the main street downtown and there had to have been 20,000-25,000 people! It was absolutely insane! We were among the sober ones, which were few and far between. But i assure you, we had just as much, if not more fun than all the people who were completely wasted.

It was just good fun with people whom I love dearly, The Gills who are amazing and such great friends and my family as well! My parents and grandparents came down for a bit and enjoyed the music. It was great.

Now for a few pictures...
















Allison and I! I was so happy to be ale to spend time with her while she was home from Cali! I miss her already :(

The Mighty Pelican in all it's glory! (Pretty cheesy, huh?)















And we exit 2008 with a bang!

So, as you can see it was undoubtedly a ton of fun! And we didn't even have to get drunk to have a good time! Pretty awesome.

Hope you all had a wonderful New Years and I know I am late in posting this but better late than never, right?
