Happy New Year: 2010!

Happy New Year! It's freakin 2010! I still remember when it was 1999 and how everyone was scared for the new millennium (I believe that was the same New Years that I jumped into our pool fully dressed with my 2 best friends to make my parents mad since I had to stay in for the night...).

Just wanted to say thanks for checking out my blog over the past year! In December I had an all time high of 1,214 readers in one day which amazes me since I just started this blog for fun, so THANK YOU!

Some resolutions for 2010:
1. Try to blog at least 5 times a week
2. Stay on the vegetarian band wagon
3. Continue to work out 4-6 days a week
4. Travel to a new place
5. Stop stressing the small stuff and enjoy each day as it comes!

What are some of your resolutions?

Stay Warm On NYE!

Hope everyone has a wonderful New Year's Eve wherever you are and whatever you do! I am about to hop on a red eye to New York to spend the rest of the week with the bf and the weather is soooo cold there- I have no idea how I am going to last!

My suitcase contains enough clothes to stay a whole month when in actuality I will only be there for 4 days. Oh well, I like to have options :) ! See you in 2010, I have a feeling it is going to be a wonderful year!

Just wanted to leave you with some inspirational pics on how to dress cute and with layers in the cold weather...I think the trick is the coffee cup in hand- great way to warm up!

All of these dresses are from my favorite site I check the "What's New" section every morning! This is my favorite time of year for shopping because all of the pretty Spring and Summer clothes start popping up online and if you haven't already noticed I'm a sucker for dresses! Obvi I put them in order from darkest to lightest to make it look pretty :)

Beautiful Blogger Award!

Amber over at Amber's Notebook nominated me for a "Beautiful Blogger" Award on her site yesterday! She is such a sweet girl and always has great posts on her outfits and fun "do it yourself" projects! We like to chat about fashion on Twitter too. Thanks again Amber!

So the rules of this award is that you have to post 7 random facts about yourself and then pass the award on to 7 other bloggers.... here it goes!

1. I've had 4 pets in my life: Boots (my current cat), Lucy (a Golden Retriever), Lily (a yellow Lab) and Mittens (a black and white cat).

2. I'm a night owl. Even if I have absolutely nothing to do or even if I am tired I stay up until at least 1 am every night... I love to watch tv shows on my computer and surf the web before I go to sleep and have a hard time accepting that it is time for bed :)

3. I went to college at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas and it was one of the best experiences of my life! I was a Kappa Kappa Gamma there and made the best of friends. My favorite Dallas spots are: Mi Cocina for the queso, JD's Chippery for peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and cherry diet cokes, Northpark mall for shopping and the Crescent Court hotel to relax and go to the spa!

4. I have been an Aunt since I was 13! I have 6 nieces (Rachel, Alexis, Samantha, Audrey, Hillary and Charlotte) and 2 nephews (Brandon and Luke). I have 2 older sisters and they both have 4 kids each- 3 girls and 1 boy!

5. I might possibly be Britney Spears' biggest fan and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I have seen her perform live about 7 times and they were all truly AMAZING! I even dressed up as her for Halloween one year...

6. I read a TON of magazines- all of my friends in college used to come borrow them from me because they knew I would have everything. I currently buy US Weekly, Life & Style and In Touch every week and then I buy Allure, InStyle, Vogue, Shape, Glamour, Bazaar, Marie Claire, Elle, Lucky, British Vogue and then sometimes British Elle or Bazaar.... expensive habit.

7. I travel all the time- in college I traveled from Dallas to LA a lot to visit my family and from Dallas to North Carolina to visit my boyfriend at Duke. Since I have graduated, I go to New York about every 6 weeks to see my boyfriend.... Some other places I went to this year were: Las Vegas in March, Hawaii in May, Dallas in June, Las Vegas again in October and Dallas again in November.

Now it is time to pass on the "Beautiful Blogger" award to 7 other ladies:

3. Shannon at Life After I Dew
4. Kara at Live Inspired
6. Lindsey at The New Mrs W
7. Maegan at Love Maegan

Thanks again for the award! Happy holidays everyone! Check back tomorrow for part 1 of my Christmas recap...
