Steppin’ (Not) Out: NYE

Maybe some day far in the future my pictures from New Years Eve will involve high heels and parties and sparkly dresses and champagne drunk from something fancier than a plastic cup. But yesterday we celebrated the end of 2011 by getting Little Evan a haircut, taking a trip to Target for 75% off wrapping paper and opening the champagne at 9 pm in case I fell asleep. I’ve always sort of hated New Years – it’s built up to be SO GLAMOROUS and SO SPECIAL and a HUGE TURNING POINT in your life, when really it’s just like any other night. Even when I was younger and DID go out for New Years I never felt like I was having as much fun as I was supposed to be having. And not even once did Billy Crystal declare he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me.

So instead of building it up and being let down, this year I just enjoyed having these two goofballs to hang out with all day and a husband to kiss at midnight any time I want to.

Whatchu lookin' at, fool?

Minding his own business

These aren’t the best SOS pictures I’ve ever taken, but there is no way to pose for photos at Target without feeling like a total idiot and we didn’t do anything else. But I DID put on real clothes after a full week of PJ pants and there is no way I’m letting that go undocumented.

Dance party!

On Evan:
Shirt – Old Navy
Jeans – Children’s Place

On Caroline:
Dress & leggings – Crazy 8 (dude, don’t even think about looking at their website unless you’re prepared to spend mucho bucks on adorableness)

On Suzanne:
Tank – ModCloth (bought on sale last week, now gone)
Sweater – Target
Jeggings – Nordstrom Rack (I’m not even ashamed, they’re SO comfortable)
Boots – Old Navy
Necklace – Lisa Leonard
Bracelet – Spiffing Jewelry (it says “I curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal” and rocks my socks)

  1. I pretty much love everything about your outfit, especially the shirt and the boots! I can hardly believe those boots came from Old Navy!

      They were twenty bucks!! I was supposed to be on a no-shopping diet but when I saw them on clearance…in my size…I couldn’t stop myself. And they have turned out to be SUCH a good purchase – insanely comfortable, easy to get on, and they go with everything.

    LOVE all the pics – and Crazy 8 is pretty much my favorite store :) Your NYE sounds way better than ours – Daddy went to a wedding, but Mommy couldn’t go because she’s still on bed rest so we spent the night at Grammy Boo & Coach’s house… which still would have been fine except I got a tummy virus and was sick ALL night. Belch.

    Here’s to a better 2012!

      I bought those clothes RIGHT after you tweeted about Crazy 8 – I think I even bought the onesie your Mommy was looking at for Squishy. I only wish we had one here in town!

    I have those boots in grey and black! I wear them far too often.

    Here is no denying they are siblings. Too much red headed cuteness. And Caroline makes some hilarious faces. Also Crazy 8 rocks and we have one at Lynnhaven, I heart it very much.
