Happy New Year’s Eve! The Pinterest Interpretation

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……
I moved.
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!
throwing glitter
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

    Congrats on getting moved! I’m sure having that part done is a HUGE relief!! Now you can spend MORE time procrastinating unpacking those boxes, etc with Pinterest. This post made me laugh. Pinterest is both the best and the worst thing for so many topics. Everything looks amazing until you go to replicate it and you’re like “wait, how much is that gonna cost???” Your Pinterest NYE party looks awesome tho! I’m with you–there’s something about NYE that makes me a homebody–maybe it’s all the crazies out. But I’m glad to have plans with friends, too! Hope you have a great NYE!!

  2. Hahahahaha I am laughing so hard because all of that is oh so realistic, right?!?! Sounds like fabulous night, sign me up and I will bring my own bow for my hair :) In all honesty, I hate going out for New Years too! Normally Chris and I are in Gatlinburg TN around this time and spend the night in a beautiful chalet in the mountains with his family staying in and watching TV and eating all of the foods but we didn’t make it this year. I hate all the crowds, the drunk people and the overpriced shitty drinks of the evening and I really hope we stay in tonight!

    I am glad to hear that you got moved despite the rain and the paint. You know that wasn’t going to go down smooth, right? Cheers to a happy 2015!!!

  3. Sounds like the perfect night- as long as it was planned by someone else LOL!! Hope you have a wonderful night and so excited to see what 2015 has in store for you!!! xoxoxo, Biana – BlovedBoston

  4. Haha I love this post and your sense of humor. We are doing dinner with my family and honestly will probably be in bed by ten..babies don’t sleep in after a late night out I have learned.
    In all honesty though, those sequin pants..LOVE THEM. If only Pinterest life was real life!

  5. im glad you moved…despite the rain and paint :( at least its over right?! im staying in this NYE and sooo excited about it. have fun at your party! xo jillian – cornflake dreams

  6. Yay for moving being done! Yes that Pinterest party looks so very realistic and affordable. Ha!

    HOOOOOOOORAY FOR BEING MOVED OUT!!! That’s so stinking awesome, lady! Especially that you did it in the rain. WAY TO GO, YOU ROCKSTAR YOU!!!!

    Love your fun pinterest NYE…I’ll bring the pink glitter, mmmmkay!

  8. This is a genius post – Pinterest should pay you to use this for branding, ha! Congrats on the move, lady and I hope you have a great New Years! Xo

  9. Haha so accurate! If only my NYE looked like this!

  10. Looks like a picture perfect NYE eve to me- too bad mine are never that glam! I actually saw a friend rocking similar glitter pants the other day- some people can pull rocking them in the grocery store. Incredible.

  11. I do love me some Pinterest, and I am seriously looking into some sequin leggings! Happy New Year!

  12. Oh my gosh, I totally just laughed my butt off. It does sound like a fancy, fun and over the top party but in real life….idk about all that. Anyways, I’m glad you moved & a Very Happy New Year to you :)

  13. Oh my gosh, I’m dying over here. You crack me up, this is some NYE perfection ;)

  14. Joey says:

    This is hilarious!! I’ll be in my onesie eating cheese and drinking cheap wine on the living room floor with my husband. Cheers!

  15. Omg this is the funniest post ever. I love the part about Mark staring at your ginormous bun and you hopping on his shoulders!!!! Pinterest does make me feel my life is woefully inadequate but God Dammit I love that shit! Happy New Year pretty!

  16. Yay for moving – though boo for rain, lol. We always go out for NYE, but we’ve been so busy that we’re going to dinner at 6pm (like old people – but really so we can have dinner with my sister who lives in St. Pete, and has a baby who goes to bed at 8) and then come home and veg! Happy 2015! xo

  17. Yay for getting moved even if it was in the rain! For real though, can I have that NYE party? Ha ha! I bought a sequined top last year to ring in the New Year and it was so itchy and uncomfortable. I have only worn it once and it shall forever sit in my closet.

  18. Carly says:

    My NYE has never looked like any of those pictures. Shoot, my NYE pictures rarely get published – no one wants to see what really happens.

  19. Yay for moving! And hooray for it almost being the year of your wedding! I feel you on Pinterest! I love it, but I spend so much time pining things and then rarely remember to go back and look at any of the pins!

  20. Bahahaha if only New Years looked like that! In my head it does, but in reality it looks more like a train wreck oops!

  21. Hahaha I loved this! I feel the same way about Pinterest, but I still can’t help myself. I have to say I would love one of those glitter skirts, or maybe even the glitter pants ;) Happy New Year to you!

  22. Why the heck couldn’t I find those glitter pants at the Rack yesterday?! Choices were very limited so I ended up with 2 LBD’s. We’ll see which one I choose for tonight. We’re actually going out for the first time in forever. I don’t love going out either, but we’re making an exception this year. Praying it’s not a hot mess and we get home safely.
    Have fun tonight and happy new year!! xoxo

  23. Jess says:

    This post is so fun! I didnt want to go out tonight but now I kind of do….darn it!

  24. YAY for getting moved in!! I can’t believe it rained and they were painting the walls when you moved. But you got it all taken care of and now you can ring in the new year without worrying about it! All of your Pinterest comments made me laugh! You aren’t the only one not going out on NYE, I’m just going to a friends house too! Happy New Year love!

    Hahaha I love this! I am going out this year, but I’m not going to lie, I’m mostly excited for the pizza & ice cream that will be waiting for me when I get home & the bloody mary’s & ice skating on Jan 1st. I’m at the point where a get together with a few friends, or a relaxing night at home sounds a lot more appealing than a night out shoulder to shoulder at the bar. I figured I’m only in MN for 2 weeks so I might as well make the most of it though.

  26. lol this cracks me up. great post! also i am not a huge fan of NYE and NEVER drive because of the crazies. i’ll be hanging out w/ my gf and her kids tonight. wild i know :) glad your’e all moved in! now a resolution we have for next year is to finally meet – no excuses! :) happy new years chica xoxo


  27. Congrats on having the move done and over with. Its so nice to be moved in but I swear the few boxes that are still unpacked are just staring at me and I can’t bring myself to finish unpacking. I love this post! I mean pinterest really can be the devil with this kind of stuff. I’m also with you about not liking to be out on new years…I feel like its just a bit much.

  28. I often sit around in super comfortable glittery clothing in drag makeup. Come on you know you do too.

    Congrats on the move!

    I never go anywhere on NYE.

  29. Bahaha this is hilarious! What a fab party you’ve planned! Love the magic thousand dollar lightbulbs. It’s really a nice touch. :) In all seriousness, Happy New Year girl!! Hope you have a fab time. And know that you are not alone in not wanting to be out with the crazies tonight. :)

  30. Seriously that is way too much work! Don’t pretend either that those girls don’t walk home with lines of glittery eyeshadow running down their face and looking like a busted can of biscuits! ;)

  31. Miche says:

    Pinterest is so totally evil like that! Anyway, hope you have an awesome new year!!

  32. Haha love your take on all the Pinterest pins, I know I could never pull off that bun or eyeshadow. Plus I think my friends would look at me crazily if I suggested the glitter throwing picture :-P

    Have a fabulous NYE, cheers to 2015 :)

  33. Haha I would have died heading down the stairs at the house trying to make my way through all the hair spray and glitter. Thank god no one really wears those hair bows, right!? Happy New Year, love!

  34. Emily says:

    Love the sparkly pants and eyes! Congrats on being all moved out! Have a happy NYE!!

  35. Jen says:

    I’m seriously dying laughing at that image of the gal with the huge bun on her head. I just KNOW Steve would give me the side stare all night too if I decided to rock that. Happy NYE girl! Can’t wait to see what life has in store for us in 2015!

    xo, Jen

  36. Omg this post is like spot on! Pinterest definitely has an obscure view of reality! I don’t know anyone who has it together enough to pull off a Pinterest NYE party! Lol!! Hope you do your best to live up to Pinterets expectations tonight! I know I won’t! ;-) happy New Year!!

  37. Kay R. says:

    hahahahahah spot on!!! I cant with the pins I saw this week. Really though? Do people just blow glitter into the air like they just dont care? No. Just no.

  38. Haha oh my goodness, this is fantastic. If only, if only. Happy 2015, girl!

  39. Meghan says:

    Can’t stop laughing. This is how I felt about planning our wedding too. I actually stopped using Pinterest because I got way too overwhelmed and felt my day would never live up to my expectations if I compared it to that. So thank you! Happy New Year! xo

  40. HAHAHA….absolutely love this! Nailed it!

  41. Bahaha…time to hop on Mark’s shoulders! This is hilarious and I wish I had seen it before New Years. I’m glad my reality is not the only one that is so far off from most Pinterest pins!

  42. Kristen says:

    lol love this post – so true. i hate being out on NYE now, I did that shit when I was younger and now I want to be in bed at like 12:01. we actually stayed up pretty late (for us) because we were having fun playing board games. hashtag old people?

  43. Lol. You crack me up :) Hope you had a great New Year’s! I’m that same as you – avoid the roads and prefer to stay in. Especially this year being preggo and tired! Didn’t even make it until midnight, lame. Glad the move is all complete! That is terrible that you had to move in the rain AND avoid wet paint on the walls! What are the odds of that?! lol
