NYE: My Plans for a Wild & Crazy Night (In)

Happy last Friday of 2016!  Can you believe how fast this year flew by? I am ready to conquer 2017 with some new goals to accomplish and dreams to make a reality. So since NYE is upon us… (tomorrow!!) I thought that I would share the gorgeous, classy outfit that I will be wearing this NYE and the exciting event that I will be attending.
Yeah, those are leggings, Star Wars socks, and my pup, Maverick, snuggling with me in bed. Be jealous. Haha okay, so maybe I’m not doing anything “fancy” for NYE but I’m fine with it. I have NYE traditions that I feel like I enjoy more than going out.  Maybe this is a sign of an old soul, but I believe I’ve only been out for NYE one time and it was enh, so I will stick with my NYE in. I imagine tomorrow night will consist of hot chocolate, popcorn, puppy snuggles, & TV show marathons! I will enjoy all of those in the comfort of my home in leggings (or sweats depending on how chilly are house is), some tall socks, an oversized sweater, not a single drop of makeup and completed with a messy bun. Is it bad that just thinking about it makes me want to leave work and drive home to start my celebration early?
One of my very favorite NYE traditions that I have since I can remember is watching The Twilight Zone marathon with my mother. Yes, I’m talking the cheesy 1950’s/60’s TV series. I’m not saying this is best show ever made and you should stay up for days binge watching, but for the time it was pretty innovative! Actually, no, you should binge watch it, it’s great! Part of my love for the show probably stems from the fun conversation that I would have with my mother either joking about the show or just talking about life.  I now live about 6 hours from my parents (the furthest I’ve been from them) and so now we just text about the show all night and watch it together apart.
The picture above is a shot of one of the most memorable episodes to me. I’m not going to ruin it by telling you what happens but the premise is essentially Murphy’s Law.  This is Season 1, episode 8 “Time Enough At Last” if you want to watch just one for a taste of the amazingness that is The Twilight Zone (dun dun duuunnnn)!

My most favorite thing about New Year’s Eve is it was the first time the mister said “I love you”. (AWWWW – I know right? He’s so super cute.) I am lucky to have found a homebody like myself to spend my NYE looking a hot mess. That makes it even more special to me. I’m not going to lie, I was so stunned when the words came out of his mouth that I just let out a nervous little giggle and walked away…… Can you believe he stuck around after that? Lol – I am blessed for sure.
No matter what your plans are for NYE, I hope you have a wonderful evening. I hope that 2016 was a great year for you and that 2017 is an even better year with new hopes, aspirations, and goals to accomplish! 
And with that, I finish my very last post of 2016 – wow.  Thanks everyone, I have thoroughly enjoyed beginning this new journey into blogging and have adored all of the support that I have been shown.  YOU are wonderful and I appreciate you! Happy New Year loves :)
