One of my bad habits that I have been trying to get rid of is thinking that my life will follow in the path of one of my elders. My Mom, my Grandma, my Auntie. It's like I can't just have my own life. So, when I was younger, tales of my parents getting engaged on New Year's Eve led me to believe that this should happen to me as well.
As far as I know, this is not going to happen to me. But I was raised with a love of the holiday. I always thought of New Year's Eve as a time to dress up as fancy as possible, go out with lots of other people dressed up fancy, drink a lot, eat a lot and be sure that balloons or confetti are dropped on your head at midnight where you stand kissing someone.
This year I decided to do something different. I decided to go to bed early. I also ate this.
In this bowl there is pistachio almond ice cream, caramel, sunflower butter, bananas, brownie and whipped cream. I should have added salt, but it was pretty good.
I don't mind that I went to bed early because that's just my style, but next NYE I'm going to dress up fancy, go out and celebrate!
