Happy New Year, Welcome to 2012!

Two thousand and twelve.  That is insanity.  I mean, it isn't like I didn't think 2012 was on its way some day, but it just sounds so futuristic!  Though, I said the very same thing about 2010 and 2011.  It's blowing my mind, you guys.  Where is time going?!

My Sitcom Group of Friends and I had a fantastic New Years Weekend Extravaganza at Dr. McVet and her husband Rick's place.  We began with a wine and cheese night on Friday.

Yeah, there are 9 bottles of wine there.  Whee! (I... don't drink much wine, but the others do).
Dr. McVet and Rick got married in September, and went on a mini honeymoon to Niagara Falls following their wedding.  They went on a wine tour, and came back with the grand plan to do a wine and cheese night.  How married couple of them, amirite? ;-)  It was a delicious and fun time, though.

On Saturday, Mr. Lock got to go pick up his brand new car, which he actually picked out and ordered back in October.  It was a nice New Years surprise that it FINALLY came in to the dealership!  Look how adorbs this car is:

Super fun orange car!  YAY!
It's a Hyundai Veloster, and it is really cool, haha.  It's a 3-door car, and he got the tech package... so fun to drive.  It's got a sporty look, but is actually very fuel-efficient and all that.  It's so exciting, after his months of waiting, to finally have his car!

We then returned to Dr. McVet's place for our Annual Fancy Dress House Party.  The venue changes most years, but the rules are the same:  a house party, with house party type decorations ... with all guests dressed to the nines.  The girls wear dresses, the guys wear suits (or at least dress pants and dress shirts, we allow ties to be optional, haha).  It all began years ago when we wished we had money for a dinner and dance party somewhere fancy, we just decided that we can get fancy at least once a year and then save our money and have a house party instead.  It's become such a huge tradition for us that when Mr. Lock and I revealed our feelings for one another, one of the first things we literally said was "we'll already have a date for New Years!".  Our dating-from-within-the-group really worked out well for this tradition.  So, while I'm not posting a picture of myself (anonymous and all, hahaha), here are some photos of the pets who rang in 2012 with us.  Best wishes for the year ahead, everyone!  I know I'm looking forward to it, after such a great 2011.
