I am finally getting around to posting about our happenings for NYE. We had a really good time and I kept forgetting that this was our first NY together as a married couple! How could I forget that, right?? Anyways, my aunt and cousin were in town so we spent the evening over at my parents house, eating, sipping some wonderful vino and talking. We had a blast. My cousin cooked us some yummy food (from her Top Chef cookbook in her Top Chef jacket) and we had plenty of fireworks to go around. My dad uses the excuse that we do this for my little 8 yr old sis ("G"), but honestly, I'm convinced that even when she's all grown up and out of the house he will still be out there shooting off bottle rockets. The man loves fireworks. Cracks me up!
I'll start off with some pre-New Years pics. I had to get some shots of G in her new Christmas outfit. My mom bought her some new 7's and they were ridiculously cute on her little tush! Now, I don't know about you, but I certainly didn't have designer jeans in elementary school, nor did I have them in junior high or even high school! I got my first pair when I turned 19!! Did I mention she's 8?? OK, well my mom explained to me that "I got a really good deal on them." Whatever makes you feel better momma! :) I have actually been dying to get her some too for a while now...ha! Now, when I put together this precious outfit for miss G...cashmere J.Crew sweater from yours truly, 7's and silver glitter sneakers....she thought she looked like a "nerd." I think her exact words were "Why do you always dress me like a nerd?!?" She just needed some coercing. Once I told her that all the girls at school would think that she looked like Miley Cyrus she was all for it!She's so humiliated! Poor G!! Can you see the fabulousness of her funky sparkly sneakers?? I love those!Mimi, me, beautiful cousin Tay and GDaisy getting some love from my momma! I'm sure she was doing what she does best...online shopping :)
I've completely digressed from my New Years post here. Whoops! OK, so onto our night.Me and Beau!Cousin Tay and me in her chef jacket
Our exciting gift from my aunt, J.Lo. It's an electric wine bottle opener. We already had one, but the way we use it, it's bound to go out soon so now we have a backup!!
Pops, J.Lo and Momma - How many Okies does it take to light some Blackcats?? HA
Hope everyone had a fabulous New Years! Sorry this is so late. My boss was away today so it gave me a chance to get caught up on blogging!! Yay for no boss Fridays!
