If you're reading this, you probably know that Mike and I are in Minnesota where we know very few people. And you probably also know that I love parties, events, and glitter.

So we had to figure out a way to make the two of these things work for New Year's Eve. 
The result? SUCCESS!

Two of Mike's buddies from high school [and their lovely wives] are still in the area, so we all decided to do a little something for New Year's Eve. We didn't really have much in the way of plans... and that just didn't fly with me! :)  So I did a little planning, prepared some snacks, drinks, activities [and glitter!], and we had ourselves a fabulous little New Year's Eve party!

Gotta have dip! 
[veggies with dip, and chips with 4 options]

Moscato, of course!
[and frozen grapes to fancy it up a little]

Snack station -- popcorn, m&m's, and chocolate chip cookies
[and glitter, noise makers, and poppers!]

My friends!!
[they were so much fun, and i feel fortunate that mike shared his friends with me!]

I may be biased, but the party turned out great. We had fun playing board games, chatting, and watching the typical NYE festivities on tv. 
[can i just add that j-woww for sure had plastic surgery, 
and snooki for sure has fake teeth?!

It was a wonderful end to 2012 and the perfect beginning of 2013. I can't wait to see what this year has in store for us!

Wishing you a very happy and healthy 2013!


  1. Looks like fun! I didn't recognize Jenny McCarthy. She's had a ton of work done, too!

  2. Kelly, Jenny McCarthy? What are you talking about? She may have had a lot of work done, but pretty sure she doesn't live in Minnesota!
