Five on Friday | Happy New Year

December was a whirlwind and I honestly haven't caught up with the fact that it's January and we have started a new year already!  I usually love to use this blog to sit down and reflect on the year, summarize the events from the past year, and set a few goals for the upcoming year.  I haven't done any of that yet.  I'm not ready for January 1st yet.  With that said, I'm going to enjoy my weekend and start fresh on Monday.  But I will use my weekend to clean, re-group, plan, and refresh.  I'm truly looking forward to get back into my weekly routine again.  

I also want to apologize to anyone that was looking to link-up yesterday for Thoughts for Thursday.  I'm sorry we weren't around to party with you.  We will be back in action next week for the first one of the year!  On that same note, I hate that I've been such a sorry blogger friend the last month.  I read and loved all of your sweet comments and apologize for not getting back to most of you.  I look forward to catching up on my favorite blogs this weekend and getting back to commenting to each of you.  Thank you again for continuing to come around this little space of mine and for all of your support! 

And now enough of my new year brain dump, here's my friday five:

New Year's Date Night Dinner with my Hubby :)

| OOTN |
I wore an old sequin skirt I had from J Crew and a little black top and my BB Dakota leather jacket.  I kept it pretty simple and honestly I didn't dress warm enough! It ended up being pretty cold outside.

I snuck over to New Orleans for 2 days this week before NYE and met some friends.  One of the girls has a precious little girl close to Brody's age that I just loved.  It gives me major girl baby fever when I'm around these sweet girly girls! 

This is my friend, Meredith, that lives in Nola with Brody on the first night we were in town.  I love this sweet picture and seeing Brody's big smile.  His dimples don't always show up that well and this picture captures that dimple perfectly!

We had friends over for New Year's Day football and a few little kiddies running around too.  I brought out Brody's new tent that he got for Christmas and they loved it!! I love watching the kids play in their little "forts." 

Lastly, has anyone seen these new pictures of Britney Spears???  Tell me she doesn't look like a new mix of Britney and Heidi Klum??  Her face has completely changed.  I'm not sure what plastic surgery she went in for, but I will say her body is rockin' again!
