New Years Eve Anniversary: Walt and I were married 14 years ago on New Years Eve/ New Years Day

Celebrating a New Years Eve / New Years Day Wedding Anniversary

When your Wedding Anniversary takes place on a holiday, like New Years Eve or New Years Day, one event or the other can easily become overshadowed.  The trick is to weave them both together for a perfect blend of both events.  Walt and I have often had parties on this day, or returned to our wedding venue for a special New Years dinner, or hung out by ourselves at home with a special dinner.  This year, we opted for a special dinner at home for our New Years Eve Anniversary this year.

 ALDI for your New YEAR 2013

As you might be aware, last year we shopped ALDI’s  for New Years Eve Budget Party Ideas–  $50 Menu Planning where we featured all the great party food available at ALDI’s for great prices.  We also highlighted the wonderful beer and wine selection available for a New Years Party.  So this year, we checked out ALDI’s for special holiday foods with an emphasis on HEALTHY.  We also looked to the New Year of 2013 and what ALDI had available with for New Years Day and beyond for emphasizing “Good for You” foods.

    We do not have an Aldi here, but there is one near where my dad lives. He shops there whenever he can get out. When I go up for a visit, I usually get him a gift card for there.

    After learning that our local food pantry shelves were bare after their Christmas giveaway, my husband and I went to Aldi where I thought we could get MORE BANG FOR OUR BUCK (which we did!) and spent $50 on groceries for the Niles Center Food Pantry in Skokie, IL.

    Happy New Year and Happy Anniversary!
