Raise up your Goodnight Kiss: Buh-Bye to 2009

Yes, a Goodnight Kiss is a champagne cocktail. It's for our last Bougie Cocktail moment of the year… New Year's Eve. 2009 had it's ups and down but for some reason, in my mind it will always be a roller coaster year for me. Obama's Inauguration: Yippee! Michael Jackson's death: Booo! Sold my book: Woo-hoo! My HR Consulting company went on the rocks and I had to learn to survive on writer's salary: Booo! Started a blog, discovered Twitter: Hurray! People I never wanted to hear from again found me on Facebook: Booo! And so went the year.

At any rate, I'm back from vacation and recuperating from a little sinus flare-up (not digging the 6.5 hour wait in frigid Miami airport). But we'll get back to full-time blogging on Monday. Sunday night (8:00pm est), come through Blog Talk radio and listen in while me, Max Reddick, RiPPa and some special guests talk about this B*tch is the New Black bullshiggity and how to get it in for 2010. Two great posts I read on New Year's and resolutions:

BougieMom is downstairs rattling pots with her annual black eyed pea contribution (at which point she announces that she is done cooking for the new year… yes, the entire year. She means it). I have something sparkly chilling in the fridge. In case you're feeling festive, here's the recipe for A Goodnight Kiss:

  • 4 oz Champagne
  • 1 splash Campari® bitters
  • 1 sugar cube
  • 1 drop Angostura® bitters

Those of you heading out for New Year's Eve – be careful out there! To all of you, I wish you all the best and Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you, your family, and all your readers! I just bought a copy of your book Ms. Author :-) I almost went the way of an ebook so I could read it today, but I have other things to do today so I'm waiting for the hard copy to show up next week. I checked Borders and Barnes and Noble and neither of the stores here had it in stock. What is wrong with these people? Maybe by book two :-)
