Happy New Years Eve!

New Years Eve sure rolled around fast, didn't it? I personally am happy to welcome a new year ahead. We had many blessings in 2013 but we also had our share of some heart aches. I finally, finally am old enough to understand the promise of a new year and starting off with goals in mind. I've always done a few but they've never really meant much. So I'm excited about some things on the horizon! 

Let's get down to business- what are y'alls plans for the night? First things first, we will be opening up a bottle of Veuve. Can't wait! We decided to go out to dinner with Weeks and Stephen's parents, and then we are stopping by our good friends/neighbors house for an oyster roast. Stephen's parents will watch Weeks while we visit with our friends, but I want to be home to kiss my baby on the head before midnight! 

As for New Years Day, I would like to wake up sans hangover and lounge around, play with Weeks and munch on some good food. Last year we were travelling on New Years Day and I'm looking forward to relaxation and soaking up time with my two boys!

If you are looking for a last minute appetizer for the New Years festivities, this Roast Beef Crostini looks absolutely divine. We will be making it either today or tomorrow. And, I was cracking up reading this article on the 13 People You Always See on New Years Eve. Ok, I'm guilty of a few from time to time. I love putting on party hats. I can get carried away :) Which one are you....please share! The horn abuser? The time lord?! Haha!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Let's make 2014 wonderful!

This year FLEW. I will definitely be writing down my resolutions for 2014 (and most likely sharing them) :)

Tonight we will ring in the new year with friends at their home. We have so much to celebrate. And the girls have an extra reason - no pressure of cooking! Ian surprised me this morning by saying that we had a personal chef coming in tonight to cook for all of us.

Your day tomorrow sounds completely perfect. Enjoy!

PS: I am "The Ball Obsessed" from that list - hilarious!

I agree! This year has flown by - but I am so happy it has....we had too many downs for my liking, but did get to meet our adorable son!

I am definitely the Glitter Trail and the Drunk too soon from past NYE parties! :)
