New Year's Eve 2009

Sadly, the best outfit pic I’ve got is this classy bathroom shot taken at the party. I just wanted to show you the wacky/wonderful jacket, which in retrospect may have tipped the scales a touch more toward the wacky side.

My attempts to style it in a way that I was happy with, ended finally with me just layering it over this vintage black sweater that I thrifted on the same day, rolling up the sleeves, knotting it at the waist (making it more blousey than blazery), throwing on my tried-and-true skinny jeans/black lace-up boots combo, and calling it an outfit. Not very dressy, but plenty flashy enough for a casual New Year’s Eve party with close friends and family.

Oh, and look... there’s my new camera, and here are some of the images the little fella captured throughout the night:




I have to say that 2009 was not all that bad for me personally, but the party did have a theme. It was Goodbye To The Year From Hell. Horns were a popular accessory.




Ah, Karaoke… always entertaining, always hilarious.

Wain, mastering the art of the bacon-wrapped hot dog:

I know this looks disgusting… and in theory it is, but in reality… a tastier treat than you might think.

Laura Jane found these awesome vintage peep-show shot glasses at a nearby estate sale. The ladies are magnified when the beverage of choice is poured into the glass, so you only get a good look when it contains liquid... genius, no? I angled the camera to keep things PG (haha) this being a family blog and all ;)

Suspect kitchen loitering and remnants of the great cake-in-the-face-incident of New Year’s Eve 2008 on the door in the background.

My nephew Ryland, the fifth Beatle.

This little trooper actually stuck it out to ring in the new year…

… and then thankfully she was out.

Happy New Year everyone, hope you all had a fun night!

Happy New Wacky Jacket, I mean Year! Clover looks so cozy sleeping in Lucas' arms. What a little party-goer. You didn't seem to be doing so bad either. Don't however get me started on weenies wrapped in piggies. I wonder if those piggies came from the tump...
