Happy New Year!
































And that, in a nutshell my friends, was our New Year's Eve :)

The first 3 and last 3 photos were taken with my new canon eos rebel xs (surprise xmas present from Lucas!) Still getting used to all that camera though. All the party pics in between were taken by our friend Julianne who did an amazing job documenting all the fun.

Thanks Julianne for capturing my first ever Karaoke performance! Aura and I, who are sort of known in our group of friends for being the shy quiet ones, rocked out to Joan Jett's "I Love Rock and Roll". I let Aura choose our song and didn't know what we would be singing until we got up there. She chose wisely and I think our audience was pleasantly surprised.

Also, just to clarify, the theme of dress was supposed to be monochromatic. Red was by far the most popular color. I struggled with this theme a bit, monochromatic does not fall easily from my closet!

I ended up cheating a little with my not completely green outfit (green silk dress with lace trim, matching bead necklace and green suede boots, all found a few days prior at Simply Chic, a local consignment shop).

Hope your 2011 is off to a good start!

I love Rock'n Roll?!?!?!? I love the last photo. Love her.
And is this proof that Lucas secretly approves of the all the support us pigeon-toed girls need? He better,
cos he's about to witness the magic and mayhem in person!

I can't wait to see you sweeties.

Great post! What a fun eve it was-- even if I missed the countdown AND your duet (sad). As usual, it was great to see you. Cheers! ...And for the record I think your 'cheaters' ensemble was fantastic. xo.

that looks like it was a big fun night. i admire your courage for doing karaoke (i guess i fall into the quiet shy category myself...).
happy new year!

p.s. monochromatic is just wrong ;) but your dress is really pretty!

p.p.s. please let us know how the camera works out. i would like to go bigger but learning a new "better" camera intimidates me.
