New Years Eve

This first picture is Kevin's hometown during the holidays.  It is so gorgeous and I love driving through it at night!

Onto New Years Eve.....I don't know about you all but I always feel like it's over-rated.  This year, I wanted to be in bed to watch the ball drop, or at least at home on my couch.  Mission accomplished.

Kevin and I walked over to Flemings for a nice dinner.  It was amazing as always and a very special treat (we used a gift card for part of it!). 

Then we walked next door to the Ritz Carlton's 15th floor bar called Urban Sip.  We got the best seat in the house (luckily) right by the window....look at the madhouse in uptown Charlotte.  I've never seen so many people and.... police officers, thankfully! 

We moved down to the lobby area where they have another bar and a band playing.  It was a great scene and we ended up seeing some of our Avenue friends - David, Kathryn, Sarah and Ryan.  They had also been at Flemings so we had the same plans that night, ha!

Kevin and I enjoying the tunes!

Then we walked home just after 11pm.  Glorious. 

The next day, we didn't feel ucky and we had the whole day ahead of us.  Yes, I hope this becomes a tradition!

I'm generally a low-key NYE person but since our friends got married on the weekend this year we went out.

Ringing in the new year in a relaxing way... and starting it off NOT hungover is my idea of the perfect celebration. Looks like a great night you had!!

Sounds like a wonderful new tradition! We drank some at a friend's house party, but I so enjoyed not feeling hungover New Year's Day! Cheers to 2012 :)

I'm with you--NYE can be so over-rated, sounds like you've found the right plan!
