Can you believe its 2014 in two days?!

I sure cannot but I am SOOO over 2013, the majority of people I know had a bad year and mine was not anything special but I feel an overwhelming amount of good when I think of 2014 so I am super excited!!

New Years Eve is a crazy day for me, it is the busiest day of the year at work for us. But being a British Pub we celebrate British New Years Eve so that means at 4pm our time a bagpiper goes through the restaurant and bar and everyone is pretty shall we say tipsy by that time.

It’s crazy people come in as soon as we open to secure a spot, so they sit and wait for 11am- 4pm for that moment. It is pretty spectacular though and for me, as the manager, it will be a big sigh of relief, it’s over.

The busiest two weeks of the year are over and I have survived. Even with two people quitting with no notice. I won’t dive into that but lets just say its added some more stress!

So these cooke cups were made in the height of my stress during Christmas. I really didn’t have the time to make these but I made the time cuz baking is my de-stresser and sugar is another thing that makes me less stressed and so happy. Probably not the healthiest de stresser but whateves! These came together so easily and I was pleasantly surprise how much me and my co workers loved them!

New Years Eve night I usually don’t do anything too crazy as I am usually pretty tired from the day, last year I got drunk ended up ringing in the new year on top of a couch signing New York New York, entertaining at least.

I didn’t start throwing up till about 2 am.. LOL

The only bad thing about new years? Everyone gets on this health kick so I am the only one still stuffing my face, heck maybe this year I will. I can’t wait. Maybe I will make a vision board this year. I love me some goals and I love checking off lists so to see a vision and to achieve it and see that I have achieved it sounds right up my alley!

Do you make a vision board?

Hope you all have a happy and safe new year!!ย

  1. Haha, British New Year? I didn’t know there was such a thing! Sounds like a pretty exhausting day at your pub though, I don’t blame you for just wanting to take some time out and bake, eat then sleep for a while. Don’t worry, I’m not on a health kick so I’d happily scoff these little wonders in minutes. Love the pretzel crust and the salted caramel, yum! Happy new year Elizabeth, hope that 2014 is wonderful for you! x
