I know it’s not Friday, but my friend, LouAnn is having a New Year’s party on her blog today and suggested that I do a New Year’s mystery photo and add it to the fun. So, hop on over to her blog here and join the party!!
I had two ideas for a New Year’s mystery photo, and both of them turned out awesome, so you get a treat today. Two photos to mess with your brains, and you’d better make your guesses before you get too tipsy. Or, maybe your guesses will be better when you’re tipsy :). Whatever the case, give it your best. Ok, ready, set, go….
By the way, Happy New Year to all of my wonderful blogging family. I hope 2014 brings you nothing but health, happiness, and prosperity, and thank you for being such wonderful friends :).
I’m going with the pully in a cracker and two bottles of something bubbly or alcoholic, say wine?
Happy New Years, Cindy! I hope 2014 brings you happiness. I think it will be touch and go whether I get my New Years post out on time, lol!
We just love to hear from you – it doesn’t matter if it’s on time :). Happy New Year to you my wonderful book buddy. May you fly through the rest of your school year with top marks and find lots of time in between for relaxing and reading!!
Hahaa, thank you Cindy and the same to you!
The first one is difficult but some kind of wheel, the second a couple of glasses of champagne or apple juice
One of your answers is close 🙂
Definitely two glasses of a nice wine in the second….no idea on the first! Loving your site! I’m loving your page! If you get the chance check out my blog at http://www.themontanaranchadventure.com.
Welcome to my blog Justine – I’m glad you’re enjoying it :). We have a lot of fun with the mystery photo, but you have to wait until tomorrow to find out the answers. Check it out regularly on Fridays. It can get pretty crazy! Off to check out your blog now.
As for th second one. Have you been naughty and stuffed your husband in a jar again. 🙂
LOL!!! It would have to be a pretty big jar :).

Many of you were on the right track for one or the other of the mystery photos, but Becky is the star of the New Year’s Eve mystery photos. She guessed them both exactly – the first one is looking in the end of a Christmas cracker and the second one is a closeup of two wine bottles laying on a shelf. Wahooooooo Becky!!!! Congrats my friend – I know how excited you will be :). And to everyone else, thanks for joining in the fun and hope you checked out LouAnn’s New Year’s party blog too.
Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, yaaaaayyyy!!! I do try ever so hard with my guesses, but people normally beat me to it. Huzzar. 🙂 Hope you enjoyed drinking that wine. 😉
I hope you had a great New Year!
I’m so proud of you!!! I knew you could do it :). We did have a nice New Year’s at home. My oldest son is home from college and his girlfriend is here, and they had a blast with my younger son playing an old Pokemon Monopoly game that the boys played when they were little. We had appetizers for dinner and watched the New Year’s coverage on the TV. I don’t really drink much, but I did have a beer with my son. We also went to see the movie, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, which was awesome! Today I am feeling very lazy, and we are just relaxing. How was your New Year’s?
Ohh my god, there’s Pokemon monopoly?! Who knew!
My New Years sounds very similar to yours. It was a quiet night in with the family with nibbles, alcohol, music and then a film after midnight (We watched Les Miserables). It may seem like a quiet New Years but I like it that way. 🙂 And yes, today I have been doing something very similar, sitting my butt on the sofa watching the BBC series Death Comes to Pemberly (a three part follow on from Pride and Prejudice).
My boys were Pokemon freaks when they were little and have awesome collections of the collector Pokemon trading cards, so they were very excited to find Pokemon Monopoly back then. It was so funny watching them play it again last night :).
How did you like Les Miserables? Was it the new one with Hugh Jackman? We saw that at the theatre, and although it was strange at first for me to watch a totally “sung” movie, I did enjoy it. I don’t think Mike really cared for it, but he did say he was glad he saw it.
I was pretty obsessed with them too, although not on the same level as a lot of people. I did collect the cards for a long time and watch the TV show. I think I used to have a Pokemon game of some sort as well. 🙂
Yes, it was the Hugh Jackman one (yummy, yummy). I thought overall the film was a bit hit and miss. Some parts were brilliant and other parts just missed the mark for me, same goes with the signers. Unfortunately I didn’t really think Hugh Jackman’s voice worked although his acting was perfect for the part. It wasn’t that he couldn’t sing because he obviously could…but his voice didn’t sound naturally musical if that makes sense? I know people that were big fans of the stage show and they said they were disappointed with the film, but overall I thought it was pretty good and made the perfect NYE film. 🙂
Wow, you and I are scary similar!! You could not have described my reaction to that movie any better. I totally agree about Jackman’s singing, and yes he is very very yummy LOL!! And yes, some parts were brilliant while other parts were ho hum. In fact, I bought the DVD, but I don’t know that I would watch the whole thing over again. I may just watch my favourite parts and fast forward through the others. The funny thing is that many people complained about Russell Crowe’s singing, and I actually really liked a couple of his solos. He seemed more believable to me while Jackman almost seemed like he was trying to hard. I’m not sure if that makes sense, but there were some scenes that almost moved me to tears.
Haha aren’t we always? 🙂 I’m glad you agree though because one of the family members I was watching it with said I was being a bit harsh on Jackman’s voice! Wow, really? I thought Crowe did a brilliant job, I had no idea he could sing, let alone how WELL he could sing! I was impressed. I agree with you, Jackman seemed like he was trying too hard.
I know what you mean about re-watching it, I’m not sure if I would consider watching it again, but there were some incredibly skilled and heart wrenching scenes, I thought Hathaway did a splendid job for example.
P.S. Tell Mike props from Becky for sitting through an entire musical film, most guys I know would weep at the prospect, haha!
I think you’re used to my hubby enough by now that you won’t be surprised by his reply LOL!! He says you’re so hot that he would sit through any movie with you :).
He’s a smooth one isn’t he? Don’t worry though – he’s harmless LOL!
He is indeed, no wonder you married him! 😛
Yes, plus he’s an awesome cook!! 🙂
Finally back in the world of signal, I’m guessing that it’s a Christmas cracker and some wines. Hope you had a fabulous party last night. I know my head was rather sore today.
Did you look at the answer I posted?? So did you partake a little too much last night Bunny? I haven’t heard from TBM today – I wonder how she fared :). So, what do you mean about your signal? Were you without internet last night? You missed LouAnn’s party!
I only looked after I commented. I was Internet free for over 24hours it was fabulous. Not heard from TBM either
Well then, you are just as smart as Becky and share the winner status. Congrats!!
having just got back from a party that lasted from mid day on 31 till lasdt night I’m a bit late for this,,, but from the party they do look familiar… it was a great party and being a non drinker I got to do most of the braaing etc… did a whole sheep on the spit and all… great party with looking into the end of the Christmas crakers to see what was inside them and all of those wine bottles on the shelf…
Wow, sounds like a great party! Glad you had fun Bulldog :).
How in the world did I get this far behind in your posts? I think the top one is the inside of a Christmas Cracker & the bottom one is jello & cream?
And no, I didn’t look before I posted my answers – hence the jello, hahahahahahaha
