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!
