Can you believe that Monday is New Years eve?! What do you have planned?
I think we’re going to spend the day relaxing and then head to a family/friend party later that night. Since little miss will be a pumpkin by about 8pm or so (even though she stayed awake until 9 on Christmas Eve), I’ll probably come to home to put her to bed and watch the ball drop with one eye open. Party animal, for sure.
I’ve never been a huge fan of staying up until midnight on New Years Eve. My most memorable ones have been the more low-key nights spent with family or friends, usually at someone’s house. Of course there was the NYE we went up to Phoenix with a bunch of squadron friends and danced the night away, or that one time we made Jolly Rancher-infused vodka….um, yeah- but for the most part, I’m happy with Indian takeout, a comfy couch and a movie 😉
I like the idea of New Year’s Eve, but it’s mostly a reminder for me to take down Christmas decorations and jot some goals down for the next year. Speaking of goals, I’m doing a switch-up on the usual inspiration board this year! I hope you’ll join me… all the details will be up on New Years day
For all of my party people out there, here are some fun ideas for any NYE celebrations:
Red and Green Quinoa Lentil Salad (this is one of my all-time faves)- just serve in little bowls or cups
Roasted veggie soup– same, just serve in little bowls or cups, garnished with a drizzle of olive oil, pepper and chopped parsley
Chocolate milkshake cocktail (omg. Would be so easy to make with chocolate almond milk, too!)

So what are you doing New Years Eve? Any fun traditions that you and your family share?
