This year we met at our house. I made this loaded baked potato soup with fresh french bread and my sister in law brought a delicious green salad. Sometimes a simple meal and a good bottle of wine are all you need for a great time. Plus it had been a while since the four of us got together so there was plenty to talk and laugh about.
For what to wear for dinner with friends I went to my "My Style" pinterest board and found this cute black and white striped sweater combo as my inspiration.
I am actually getting a little more comfortable in skinny jeans tucked into riding boots every time I wear them.
I don't know if you noticed my new bob haircut. My young friend Emily just happens to be a talented hairdresser as well as a fellow creative soul with a cute Etsy shop, so when she offered to cut my hair in exchange for a couple of sewing lessons I happily took her up on it. It's quite a bit shorter than I'm used to but I am loving my sassy new do.
I think this would be a great look for a quiet New Years Eve at home or hanging out with friends. As for me, I'm sure I'll be tucked under a blanket on the sofa all toasty in my PJ's watching the ball drop in my living room. What about you? Anything special planned to ring in the new year?
