Holiday Plans & NYE Get-ups

This year John and I will be spending Christmas in Albuquerque.  Although I have almost two weeks off from work, John hardly has any vacation time (the woes of a new attorney, I suppose).  Last year for Christmas we were able to squeeze in a trip to Minneapolis to see my parents and also spend week in DC to see John's Dad's side of the family.  It is a little sad that we won't be able to make rounds this year to see all of our family, but thankfully, John's mom lives in Rio Rancho (which is directly north of Albuquerque) so we will be able to spend Christmas with some family.

Since we will be staying local for Christmas, John and I decided to take a mini vacation over New Years.  We will fly into Dallas on the 27th and spend about five days exploring the Lone Star State.  (Speaking of Dallas, has anyone watched Courtney Loves Dallas on Bravo?  Can people please send me free clothes too?!).  And totally random, but it just so happens that my good friend Elizabeth (who was a bridesmaid in John and my wedding) will be in Texas the week before with her boyfriend... it is a shame that we will have just missed each other!!

Normally for New Years, John and I stick around home and watch the ball drop on TV (although last year John went to bed at 11:30 because he just could not stand staying awake 30 more minutes), but since we will likely be out and about, I am having fun thinking of cute NYE get-ups.  When it comes to dressing for the holidays, it doesn't matter how far in advance I plan, I always decide what I am going to wear 30 minutes before - ergo, I need options.

Here are some options that I am feeling for this year.
