a friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.

Sometimes, it's nice to go out. For the most part, I am a stay in and watch TV kind of girl. But....I also love getting dressed up. That is why every so often it is fun to put on a cute dress, grab some drinks, and catch up with friends. Over the holidays, I was able to do that a little bit more!

I ended up going to a club with a couple of my friends on Saturday night. Then, I spent New Years Eve with my boyfriend. Since I have been able to actually go out lately, I thought that I would share some of my photos!

Let's start with clubbing on Saturday night. It was super last minute and unexpected. With a pile of work in front of me, I did my best to get everything submitted - and got ready in a flash. I straightened my hair, grabbed a cute strapless dress (with a peacock feather print!) and threw on some super smokey eye makeup. The result?


Then we went out to the club and danced the night away! It was really fun, even though I didn't stay out too late. (I'm not a kid anymore...) Here are some of the pictures from the rest of the evening. 


And then came New Year's Eve. As I mentioned in my last post, I was supposed to be going out with a friend and my boyfriend. Unfortunately, the plans didn't seem to come together. It ended up being a night in with some movies and my boyfriend. Even though I didn't end up having the exciting evening out I dreamed of, it was still nice. Here is our last picture together for 2013:


What did you do for New Years? Have you gone out recently?
