My Kind of Celebration

I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a big fan of New Years Eve, and huge parties where you pay for a ticket to stand around a more than usual crowded bar.  I did that once, and it was more than enough for me.  So just like last year’s NYE, this year’s was perfect.

Dar and I woke up relatively late, and after I cooked us an awesome breakfast of home fries, and over easy eggs we were off to run errands.  These included tracking down some synthetic oil for my car (the garage that fixed it over Christmas sucked and didn’t fill up my washer fluid or oil), getting a link removed from my new watch, and trying to find something in J. Crew to spend my gift card on.  Shockingly, the only thing I left the store with that day was a new iPhone case, but don’t worry, I managed to spend the gift card yesterday shopping online.

NYE Outfit suitable for 57 degree weather

Leopard flats by Tory Burch, Downtown Skinny Jeans by J. Crew, Blythe Blouse by J. Crew, belt by Burberry.  Also known as, the preppiest outfit I’ve ever put together.  After relaxing with a couple of beers and an episode or 3 of Dexter, we got to work in the kitchen preparing our NYE feast.  I did ultimately  decide to go with Roasted Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, and what Darren referred to as the best asparagus he ever tasted.  Thanks boo.

After dinner, we both changed into sweats and settled in on the couch for the remainder of the evening.  We watched Dexter until about 7 minutes until 12 then turned on the NYE countdown.  We had a champagne toast (Strawberry Andre, only the finest) smooched, and then went right back to Dexter.  That is my version of a perfect NYE.

The next two days were pretty much spent in exactly the same manner, in fact, I never even got dressed.  We knocked out the first two seasons of Dexter, and Dar loves it just as much as I told him he would.  I can’t think of a better way to spend our last two days together than holed up in my bed watching TV in our pajamas.  Darren hit the road home to WI last night around 7 and it majorly sucked.  What sucks even more for him is all the snow he’s encountered during his drive, typical.  He should get back around 1 pm this afternoon.  1 month and 13 days until our next visit.

Obviously today is sucking a lot, not only because after almost a whole month together Darren is no longer here, but I’m back at work with no days off to look forward to until next month.  Lame.  Oh well, at least today is already Tuesday?  Now, if you’ll excuse me I have to go spend the rest of the day photoshopping bangs onto my face to decide if I want to get them Thursday.

  1. Cooking in a silk blouse? that’s way out of my comfort zone….you so wild and crazy! (love the shirt!)

  2. That sounds like my ideal New Years. I’m glad you guys had a good time.

  3. Such a cute outfit, you look like Charlotte from S&TC 🙂
    And I’m torn on the bangs. Half of me says do it, but the other half of me has been combing them off my face for the last month and semi-regretting the decision to get them…sooooo… nah, f it. Do it. If you hate them you can always pin em back.

  4. It’s my serious goal to spend the next new years eve in sweatpants. That is, if the world doesn’t end first.

  5. I love that outfit!!! I’m sorry you won’t get to see the man-friend for awhile, but hopefully time goes by fast!

  6. Sounds like my kind of night too!! And bangs…YES! Do it!

  7. I did practically the same thing on Saturday, sub tomato soup for the chicken and movies for the Dexter. But I caught some Dexter yesterday. Halfway through season 4 and it left me on such a cliff hanger!
    Good luck with the bangs! I think they’d look great.

  8. I spent Saturday/Sunday/Monday morning and afternoon cooking, running errands, do laundry…it was actually so relaxing. We went out twice, but didn’t party too hard.

    And the closet got cleaned out. Super accomplishment.

  9. I always regret bangs….but always want them again after they grow out. But I hate having hair on my face. But I hate having nothing interesting up front. Yeah, have fun with that decision, ha.

    Your super cute designer clothes are making my new frugal lifestyle very angry. Wish I could raid your closet.

  10. My best friend is in a long distance relationship (her man is in the military) and she sounds just like you. Meanwhile, I had no one to kiss on NYE. It’s ok though, I’m happy with that.
    But that meal looks fabulous!
