Happy 2011!

Happy New Year!  Did you have a fun time last night ringing in the new year?

Honestly, I don’t really enjoy New Year’s Eve celebrations, mostly because I dislike staying up late.  I do enjoy dressing up, so celebrate we did by attending a dinner/dance at our club.

Before we left we took a few “prom pictures.”  I bought my dress on vacation in Vermont.  I hope I’ll have another occasion for wearing it soon.

Our club looked really pretty.  I think Mr. SP and I were probably the youngest couple there.

I loved the centerpieces.  A local gal who is trying to get a party planning business started did them for free. 

The buffet dinner was really good.

This self portrait was taken just before midnight.   I had a hard time staying awake but got a second wind around 11:15.  IMG_5366

Here’s to a great 2011!!


  1. You look gorgeous!!! Love that dress. How fun to be able to get all dolled up and go out like that. We stayed home and watched a movie with my sister. Not exactly exciting, but I was beat by midnight.

    Happy New Year! 🙂

  2. Wow Paula, I went to get hot dogs in my jeans and a sweatshirt. Y’all look wonderful together and very very happy.

  3. You and Mr. SP look stunning! I went to sleep in one year and woke up in the next…..so much for exciting New Years Eve!

  4. Ya’ll look really spiffy, Paula. I’m not one to stay out late either, but it looks like you had fun! Happy New Year! Carla

  5. Oh my word, girl, you look gorgeous! Looks like a lot of fun. Those centerpieces look great!

    My hubby was in bed by 10 on NYE – party pooper – ha!

    Happy 2011!

  6. Paula, that dress was totally worth going out for! You look amazing!!! So pretty! Food looks good too! Love the centerpieces – reminds me of the roaring 20’s or something. Glad y’all had a good time!
