My husband is part of a band, and he played a show last night, so that means I was at home with my kiddies for the evening.. Honestly, no other place I’d rather be 🙂 My five year old son, Christian, told me he wanted to stay up all night. I wasn’t too hip to the thought at first, because my baby girl still gets up at least twice a night to eat and I look forward to as much sleep as possible; BUT I figured it’s only one night, and he was really excited when I told him he could stay up with me to watch the ball drop! Once we put the baby to bed, we watched a DVR’d Chronicles of Narnia, interesting movie, that was the first time I’d seen any of those. Then we played a little Monopoly 🙂 Around 11:45 p.m., I felt like my eyes were about to cross, this is how I know I’m getting old (lol), we watched the countdown to the New Year, Christian counting down the 60 seconds, the ball drops, I give him kisses, we say HAPPY NEW YEAR!!, and he says, ” so when’s the ball gonna drop?” Poor guy… haha I love it! Being a Mommy is such fun, I love the things my kids say/do! Needless to say, I didn’t have to ask him if he was ready for bed, he told me he was going to bed and went with no hesitation!
Tomorrow is the last day of 2013! Where has time gone, my goodness!

Can you believe the new year is just a few days away?
Are you doing anything special to ring in the new year?
Well, this week’s inspiration is all about New Years and some really fabulous ideas!!
1. What better way to ring in the New Year in an absolute style? I love this look, it’s perfect for New Years! It’s sexy and sophisticated and ultra feminine!! I have been crazy about tulle skirts, though I don’t own one I think they’re just precious! This gorgeous high-waste metallic skirt pairs perfectly with this plain cotton black shirt. The only thing I would add would maybe be a sparkly necklace like this one here!
2. Oh my goodness these are lovely! These double-stacked, gold dipped macarons would be the talk of the party! They create a statement all on their own, don’t you think? I’m also quite partial to the light blush color of the icing! It’s one of my favorite colors paired with gold! Head over and check out the entire Gold and Glitter Party!!
3. I’m obsessed with tissue paper garland ♥ It so easily dresses up any space and makes the perfect party decor! I made one for my sons birthday back in June and the only downside to it is, it is time consuming! But, it’s worth the wait!! You can pick up metallic tissue paper at places like Hobby Lobby, Target and other mass retailers.
4. Oh, pink champagne! A New Years must-have! These gold-dipped champagne flutes are gaw-geous. Such a simple idea that is super eye-catching! I’m just in love with these! These are an absolute must-have for your New Years celebration, but before your go, be sure to check out the incredible Rose and Gold Wedding here!
