I hope you are all enjoying this year of the Rabbit. Dan and I thought it would be fun to celebrate the Chinese New Year on the 3rd of this month. These are the invites I sent out (with stuff blacked out...of course)
It was a lot of fun. Dan made coconut shrimp (which I don't know if it was good or not because I didn't eat any) and I made orange chicken. Dan also made fried rice.
Here are some of our friends that came. The ones I got a picture of anyway. Like my little lanterns in the background? A little cheesy, but there you have it. We ate with chopsticks, wore red and/or gold for luck and opened our fortune cookies that I had fun making. They didn't work out so well, but they were fun to try to make. Then we went downstairs and as a joke I suggested we play Dance Dance Revolution. And that is what we ended up playing. It was really funny to watch everyone play it. Dan and I discovered that according to our astrology we aren 't compatible. I'm a boar and I'm not really compatible with many other types.
It was a lot of fun, and I hope we make a tradition of celebrating the Chinese New Year every year. Maybe next time it would be more authentic, but for this time it was a lot of fun. Any excuse to party, eh?
