Michael and I usually spend New Year's Eve in Orlando riding roller coasters at Universal Studios. This year we decided to stay home and have a mini-'stay'cation instead since we have both been working so much. So far we have planned to go to a trampoline park, new vegan restaurant and a few arcades, so nothing too crazy. I've been off work this week so it's been so nice to have my mornings to myself to drink coffee and do yoga.
For New Year's Eve this year we will probably go have a few drinks, and then hopefully light off some fireworks. I don't even care about the big fireworks...I mostly just like to play with sparklers. It's definitely going to be a pretty laid back night. As far as my outfit, this dress was originally white (it was the dress I was married in!), but I knew I'd never wear it again if it was white so I dyed it blue. I'm super happy with the blue color, and it still maintained it's sparkles. While I was taking these pictures I totally had an epiphany and realized I looked like Cinderella. Blue dress? Check. Glass Slipper?...sorta, do Glittery jelly shoes count?

I had a few days off for Christmas and, since civil defense attorneys are notorious workaholics, was back in the office this week. But, now I'll be off few a few days again... which I'm stoked about! Last year, Collin + I along with Michael + Amelia, went to Wizarding World and it was one of the best trips of my life, because it was my first trip to Wizarding World (blogged about here) and our first big trip as a group! Our dudes work in F+B so it's really hard for them both to get enough of a weekend off to go anywhere for too long, which is ultimately what happened this year.
This had Collin + I scrambling trying to decide what we wanted do to for NYE until we got a text from Collin's coworkers about a "low energy hang with high energy fire"... and I mean... how do you pass that up? The last campfire we hit up had a s'mores bar y'all... A S'MORES BAR. Since we'll be sitting on blankets in someone's backyard, I'll probably wear something a little more casual but thought it'd be fun to dress up in what I'd wear if I was going somewhere fancier. Bring on the LBD's and sparkles.
