new friends, new year!

So I know this is long overdue, but before the new year, I went to a get-together with some lovely bloggers, held by Blythe, called Dressember. I'd heard of it off of Beatrice's blog, Dear Beatrice, and Ashley (my blog bestie) and I decided to go. I'm glad we did, too. I'm a really shy person, but I try to not be, and this was as good an opportunity as any. We met up at the Gypsy Den in Santa Ana on Thursday, and just sat and ate and chatted. It was nice, and you all should check out the Gypsy Den. (The one in Santa Ana is much bigger and cuter than the one in Costa Mesa, by the by. J and I have gone previously to see our roommates' wonderful and talented band Swiss Alps play. One of them, Alyssa, has a cute little blog called Love & Space. Check it out!)

Ashley and me. We finally meet in person! :)

Afterwards, we went to J's family's to spend New Years Eve. Pretty uneventful, but nice. We played Kinect sports and dance games, which are fun and hilarious. Other that that, there was lots and lots of eating. I'm not big on crazy New Year's Eve parties. Gimme board games and food and a fireplace, and I'm good.

Outfit for Dressember.

HAPPY 2011! I don't have any grand new year's resolutions. I'm hoping to just be more open, and outgoing. Put myself out there more. Also, I want to go on adventures! Let's travel, please!
