New Year’s Eve Recap

Just a quick little recap of NYE this year. πŸ™‚

Black Bean, Corn, and Red Pepper Salad with Lime Cilantro VinaigretteWe brought what I call the Ultimate Summer Salad (perfect NYE, right? Ha! Oh well). Have you guys had this before? It’s so good and simple to make!

madeleineMadeleine is such a cutie. Look how much she has filled out since she was born in September!

new year's eve girlsOkay for real now… all the ladies at the NYE party. πŸ™‚

It was a fun, laid back evening just hanging out with friends. Well, laid back for me since I didn’t play Nertz, haha! We watched the ball drop in NYC (which was 11pm for us) then Christopher and I headed home. At midnight we ended 2013 and began 2014 with a kiss. πŸ™‚ Happy 2014, friends.
Love Rach

  1. Gotta love a picture with a photobomber. Especially when they laugh/snort on you. πŸ™‚ Happy new year!

  2. Yay! I was waiting for your NYE recap! That salad SO MUCH resembles a divine version presented in Alicia Silverstone’s ‘The Kind Diet’, and I do think it’ll be on the menu very soon! Tony has cracked me up, too. Bahaha! Happy New Year from the 2 girls who were asleep before 10:30, never hearing fireworks despite happening just outside of our window. πŸ™‚

    • Ooh, nice! I’ll have to check out her recipe too. I hope when you make it, you really enjoy it too. It’s so delicious. πŸ™‚ And hey, being asleep before midnight is no biggie! That way you were sure to get a good night’s sleep for the beginning of your 2014! πŸ™‚

  3. This looks like such a fun evening! I fell asleep on the couch… Looks like I needed your game night!

  4. That summer salad looks delicious! I was in bed asleep at 10:30. I could not keep my eyes open on the car ride home from Birmingham. Trey came in and kissed me at 12 and I immediately passed out again. I felt bad he stayed up alone watching movies but I just could not make it! Next year though! We will have to play games to stay awake πŸ™‚

  5. What a fun NYE celebrations! Friends are always the best! πŸ™‚

  6. So weird to think that you watched the ball drop at the same time that I did, only it wasn’t the same time. haha Oh, time zones! πŸ™‚ Happy New Year!!!

    • Haha! That IS weird! Time zones are so strange. When I was living in China I always thought that it was so cool that I was already in another year and could talk to my friends who were still living in the previous year for half a day!

  7. that salad looks delicious!!! never had it, but might have to make it! πŸ™‚

    That salad (dip) looks so good!

  13. If your blog doesn’t make you famous someday, then you will most definitely be famous on Pinterest!! Ha, ha. Because I most definitely pinned that yummy recipe of yours! I’ve never made it, but I think that it would be perfect for a Superbowl party! (Or any party for that matter…). πŸ™‚ Happy New Year!

  14. Sounds like the perfect way to ring in the New Year…yummy snacks, friends, laughter and then a kiss. πŸ™‚ Happy 2014!!

  18. Yum! This looks so yummy! I am going to have to try it. I am surrounded by party poopers though who don’t like beans or corn in things. More for me I suppose!
