New Years Eve!

Coming to you live from my favorite place in the house, the sofa. As I type, I'm almost comatose from sinus medicine. I've been well since Friday, why am I taking meds??? BECAUSE MY THROAT STARTED HURTING TONIGHT!! I have sinus pain & pressure as well. Dean is feeling better. I didn't think sinus was contagious? All this sickness & the fact that the majority of our friends are out of town leads to a boring New Years Eve. We're just watching LSU.

Yesterday, I went to brunch with Allison. We went to Tallulah. It's the restaurant in a new hotel in town.
We had a glass of champagne. So good! I had the crab & shrimp frittata. It was really good. I didn't get a picture because it took forever. Our waitress told us that "the fritatta had to be re-made". Hmmmm. OK. Anyway, I was starving when it came & forgot about pictures.

I LOVED the Christmas trees in the lobby.
Of course these are iPhone pics but the trees below were my faves! The tree was actually gold.
The pictures don't do them justice. Gold tree with silver, gold & bronze ornaments. So, so pretty.
The close up doesn't do it justice either. There was more gold than silver but the combo was so pretty.
Another one.
Loved this ornament.

We did a little shopping after brunch. I picked up the Urban Decay eyeshadow primer. I was told it was a must. I'll let you know.

Today I was back at work but I only had to work until noon. I met friends for lunch.
Lane is our Godchild. We exchanged Christmas gifts. I got a very cute necklace & earrings.
Me, Vicki & Lane. My hair was in a ponytail. I don't like the way it looks but I didn't feel like doing anything more to it this morning.
Me & Lane. Vicki's niece Simone joined us too. I just realized we didn't get a pic. I can't believe how grown she is. Time flies.

A bunch of our friends are spending NYE in Pass Christian at our friends house. Since we had to work &  Dean still isn't well, we stayed home. I got a text message from one of our friends this afternoon telling me to stop by on my way home because they had something for me.
I was very excited to see this! Dave makes this appetizer a lot & I love it. It's assorted cheeses, olives, artichokes, mushrooms, red peppers & some sort of salami or sausage or something. I don't generally like salami or sausage but I love this stuff.  He said since we couldn't be with them he made us our own. I was very excited. We snacked on it while watching the LSU game. I'm wondering if I'll make it to the end.........



  1. Hope you are feeling better and that you went to sleep before you saw the end of the game!! We had so much fun at the game but man was Brandon upset. All the way back to our hotel Brandon was giving Les Miles heck!! ;)

  2. Sometimes a quiet night is noce. Glad you got to go to brunch anyway. We went to a party and had a great time, as you know. Wishing you all the best in 2013. Xo, Pinky

  5. I hope you feel better soon.

    I love those trees - I've always loved those aluminum trees from the 60s that you could shine the colored lights on!

    Mmmm...the antipasto looks yummy yummy! One of my favorites!

    Wishing you and yours a wonderful 2013!!!

  6. That antipasto looks delicious! Hope you're feeling better...lots of illness around these parts too! Happy New Year!!

  7. Hope you start to feel better, I have something coming on, hope I can fight it off. Your lunch sounds amazing, don't you hate it when it takes so long. Happy New Year to you.

  8. Umm O LORD that looks good!! Right up my taste bud alley too!

    Hope you are well - again! I got it bad over the last week. My sinuses were clogged and it started draining from MY EYE. It was DISGUSTING. This hot cold hot cold heater no heater etc. is torture on my body.
