For New Year’s Eve we had a couple of our friends over for a pretty tame celebration. We had some appetizers and champagne and some confetti poppers. We aren’t ready to tell everyone yet about the pregnancy so I decided that in order to keep them in the dark about our news I would pretend to sip champagne all night. This involved me taking fake sips and saying “yum!” and then Zach taking a few swigs so the amount in the glass would actually decrease. I wasn’t sure if we had convinced them, but at least I didn’t have to explain why I wasn’t having even a sip of champagne at midnight.
***Update February 15, 2010*** We brought us this story this weekend with our friends and told them about our New Year’s deception. Apparently I was so convincing they when they found out we were expecting they thought I was hitting the champagne hard while pregnant and didn’t want to say anything! I’m glad we got that cleared up.
