Happy New Year’s Eve!!!! I apologize for my absence yesterday I promise I will recap New York. I absolutely planed to have done it yesterday but instead……
In the rain…..of course it did.
On the exact same day my condo complex decided to paint all the interior walls of the walkways. I kid you not. So it became multiple trips instead of one but I am officially moved out! More to come on that. In the meantime I wanted to share a little funny of the Pinterest interpretation of New Year’s Eve. We actually have plans tonight to go to a friends house. Am I just totally weird that I really hate being out on New Years? I just feel like everyone is drunk and I don’t want to be on the roads with anyone else. Call it paranoid I guess.
Soooo……I have a love hate relationship with Pinterest. It all starts innocently with checking your feed from your friends, “Oh I like this Paleo recipe Stacy pinned….similar pins…don’t mind if I do“. Before you know it Pinterest has stolen 3 hours of your life usually when you are trying to go to sleep and your perfectly planned 7 hours of sleep now turns into 4. You have pinned your entire dream kitchen when in reality you know it isn’t going to happen and 5 DIY projects which also are never going to happen. This brings me to my next topic how unrealistic Pinterest makes holidays and planning parties. Like who has time for glittering every wine flute with rose champagne??? Humor me, let’s plan a Pinterest New Years Eve party together shall we?
Okay so first I’m just hanging out in my glitter pants that look oh so comfortable checking my facebook updates with a glass of champagne…..totally realistic right?
Then I’ll perfect the smokey glitter eye that wouldn’t at all look like a drag queen did my makeup and is completely appropriate for a house party.
More like I’m drinking a glass of wine in my bathroom while getting ready and drop dark eyeshadow down my face which I try to wipe it off and it ends up smearing and I now have raccoon eyes and Mark is watching football on the couch asking me if I’m ready yet……
Maybe I’ll do a huge bun on top of my head that Mark won’t stare at all night and want to say something to me but doesn’t dare question the hair (no joke though I do kinda love this one).
I decide to ditch the bun and finally pick the most perfect sequined mini and top it off with an ostentatious black bow that wouldn’t bother me all night long.
My best friend arrives! I am so glad we both decided to top off our outfits with perfect fur vests while drinking more champagne.
Let’s blow some glitter off our hands and get out of here!
Oh wait some of my girlfriends are on the porch….more glitter before we leave! I’m so glad we all choose glitter minis and skirts to head out in!
We get to the party but first we are having an intimate dinner outside before we head in for the countdown. Those lightbulbs are totally not a million dollars each or anything (as I’ve learned now from Wedding planning) and make sense for outdoor dining. What are they hanging from?
We venture inside and grab some more champagne that is clearly over poured and won’t drip all over our fabulous dresses.
While we admire all the gorgeous decor.
Then we party like rock stars…spraying champagne…lighting sparklers inside (tried it once wouldn’t recommend it) while wearing more fur coats and glitter falls from the sky.
Don’t forget to take your party favors!
Time to hop on Mark’s shoulders then grab your girlfriends and stumble home.
Wow that was a crazy night!
What an amazing New Years right? In all honesty wouldn’t that be an epic night? Don’t be fooled I really love Pinterest.
I hope everyone has a safe and fabulous holiday! I can’t wait to see all those gorgeous sequined dresses! Tell me your plans for tonight!!! xoxoxo
