We spent New Year's Eve at a hotel with four of our besties. It was great fun! We shared our table with some other hotel guests - I think they were thoroughly entertained...or embarrassed. A New Orleans style buffet (for the non-gluten intolerant) and chicken, steamed veggies and rice for me. A live band from 9pm-1am. After dinner and a few drinks (pinapple-7up for me) we got up and danced. I made it through 2.5 songs, then I was tuckered out and the belly was asking for a sit. But it was still a blast! Time went by quickly and soon we were watching the countdown with drinks in hand. Husband and I clinked glasses and kissed at the stroke of midnight! It was lovely. I love ringing in the new year with him. It's always special.
My girlfriend C got the best picture of my belly yet! I love this one! I felt so sexy in my Isabella Oliver dress. (Thanks to Marionberry Style for an awesome giveaway!) Every time I turned around people were commenting on my baby bump. I definitely wasn't hiding it and it sticks way out there so I was bound to get a few comments. This outfit is a real head turner. Husband was even blown away!
I added silver and glitter nails for a fun touch. And this little bolero that I got in a swap from Megan Mae doesn't come out often enough, but it's something I'll keep just for nights like this. I also layered a short necklace and pendant necklace, which I've haven't done before. Cocktail rings on both hands, one of my full, curly, hairpieces and a sequined hair clip topped off my look. I use holidays like this to bring out all my bling and be extra sparkly. We should have more parties like this during the year. Once a year is not nearly often enough to sparkle!
How did you ring in the New Year?
