Hello 2012!

I can honestly say that this was one of the best NYE I have ever had. 
I spent the day surrounded by people I love so much cheering on the team I love so much and closing one chapter and opening another! 

 We started off the day in Reliant Stadium watching my beloved Aggies BTHO Northwestern in the Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas.

Our seats were in the Directors Club which is now my favorite way to watch a football game. Open bar, brunch buffet, leather couches YES this makes watching football MUCH more fun!


If you went to A&M you know how hard it is to find maroon clothes that are not just aggie t-shirts. This group ROCKED the maroon. Impressed. We even got a rebel and a tiger to join in on the maroon madness! 


After MUCH needed rest and a delicious fajita dinner we got ready to ring in the New Year! To ring in the new year we headed to a SUPER fun party where we counted down to 2012! 

This picture says it ALL.

 We coordinated. We're cute. We know.
 I would not have wanted to spend my last moments of 2011 and first moments on 2012 with any one else.
Thanks Catherine for being such a wonderful hostess!

NYE Outfit of the Day!
I was determined to find a dress to wear to the A&M game which as I mentioned before is a feat! I loved this cut out dress I found at my favorite online boutique Ruche! Such unique and vintage flair clothing.
For my NYE dress I wanted something with some color. I just happened to be browsing Old Navy on a whim and found this beauty. I love both the cut and color of this dress it almost reminded me of something Christina Hendrix would wear in Mad Men! We were going to a "country" bar so I wanted something that I could throw boots on with but also dress up for another occasion! 
game day:
Dress: Ruche
Boots: Cavenders 

NYE:
Dress: Old Navy.. yes you read that correctly 
Belt: Fabulous Vintage find 
Necklace: Vintage Grandma!
Lace Tights (that you cant see but I am wearing): Loft 


Thanks to Kate at The Small Things Blog for the inspiration for my NYE hair! I loved it. I knew we would be a party with a TON of people and I didn't want to deal with my hair down attempting to keep curl in in Houston humidity! I loved the results! 

Hope your fist few days of 2012 have been as great and relaxing as mine!
