Happy New Year!!!

"Ring in the New Year!"

Alright, these are the very first Mathews pictures of the year. We hope you all had a wonderful New Year!

Just before midnight... We watched "Horton Hears a Who" and "Space Chimps". They were both awesome and hilarious! Perfect "distraction" movies. :D
"Ian, Jas & Lisa."
Dinner tablescape
"Winter Flurry Swirls" place setting.
"Sierra Grape Fizzy".
"Nana Mac Bread".

At midnight and beyond (ok, a few minutes into it)...
"The Ladies of the apartment..."
"The Men of the apartment..."
"Here come the poppers!"
"...And of course, Confetti Boy!"

I just have to add that my "tablescape" were all 50% off finds at Kroger (Smith's or Fry's) yesterday afternoon. This year's theme is "Winter Flurry Swirls".
Yes, I finally gave in to BLUE, but as you notice, it wasn't just any blue, it was subdued by the white snowflakes and the navy blue bowls and blue glass chargers. I used my red/white "Snowflake Holiday" plates to break up the blue and brighten up the look. I thought it was perfect for the New Year since it is still Winter, we just enjoyed some Snow and we are in The US of A; red, white & blue! Pretty cool, thinking, huh?

Of course, it wouldn't be complete without my Asian heritage kicking in- we ate Angel Hair pasta with Shrimp for wishes of long life and cookies and fruits for another year of sweet life.

See you all next post!

Happy Birthday, Michelle Branch!!!

So was does it mean if you had junk food and baked potato bar? Your table scape was so pretty! We ate off Costco paper plates!

I love how you go all out for holidays even when it's just you and your little family. That's how my mom was and it really made things special for us and gave us lots of great memories.
