All that Glitters….

 

How fast did Christmas go by?!? I can’t believe it’s over! I am still enjoying my tree and house decorations, but sadly I will have to work on getting them all down soon. It’s just been so hectic getting the house cleaned up after Christmas Eve and Christmas dinners. It’s amazing how much disarray two meals can bring to a house. I am sure the wrapping paper and toy boxes strewn about the living room didn’t help. The meals were delicious though and everyone enjoyed themselves so I would call that a successful holiday!

On to New Years! I wish there was a little more time between Christmas and New Years – I feel like I can never fully prepare or make appropriate plans to celebrate within a week. In years past, it seemed as though it was a requirement to have a fancy dinner and party it up all hours of the night. Since having a baby, our partying days have definitely come to a stop. It’s just not worth losing any more sleep than I already do and I have learned to appreciate parties that occur before 10pm. Our New Years plan this year includes a grill, lobster tails, champagne and loungewear. My 21 year old self would cringe at this thought, but I can’t wait. If this year is anything like last year, no one in our house will be awake at midnight – well no adult anyway.

While I am completely ecstatic about spending a relaxing evening on the couch with my husband for New Years, I do miss getting dressed up in glitzy outfits and getting sparklers out at midnight. While I was going through my closet this week looking for anything with sequins on it to include in this post, I realized I only had one embellished tank top! I did put in on, but I couldn’t stand outside for long without a coat today. It was actually that cold in Florida! I don’t even know how I don’t have any other sparkly items in my closet. Such a tragedy. Too many years of being an adult have made my wardrobe so much less exciting. If anyone else has this problem, I found some cute items to help! I found so many pieces on sale that would be great for any party, but especially New Years!
