One of my favorite New Year's Eve was celebrated December 31st 2009.  I was home in Pittsburgh with my family, found a really cute dress from H&M and spent it with my BFF Maggie! We did a real low-key (safe) celebration by staying at the Hilton Downtown Pittsburgh, shuttling over to the Casino, standing downtown to watch the Pgh countdown and going back to the hotel to chow down on Lincoln Bakery Cupcakes.  The only downer was the fire alarm that went off in the hotel at 3am!!! ha-ha

Happy New Years with my Best Friend Forever!

December is always fun for me. One it's my favorite month of the year and I get to celebrate the holidays in 2 locations.  The first half of December I spend wherever I'm living at the time (for the last 2 years its been Houston) and then around the 20th I leave for home to spend the big holidays with my family! Here are my looks from my time home in Pittsburgh!

Me visiting with my friend's puppy, too cute. I love wearing vests over button downs in the winter. Easy way to layer.

Meeting up with my High School friends for Dinner

Y'all remember Tara right? From all my fun posts in July? Anyway this was her and I shopping while I was home.
I attended a fair amount of holiday events in Houston before heading home to Pittsburgh. This first look here I wore to my work Christmas Party with the Cardigan and then to a going away dinner with friends without the cardigan.

My boyfriend Santa Tree and I at our Annual Kruse Elementary Christmas Party. My company's employees in the gulf coast sponsor a child in a low-income neighborhood and buy them a gift. Then we have a party for them and bring their presents! I love it!

I like taking pictures with the Christmas Decorations that the building I work in put up every year!! They are so pretty! I can't wait for holiday time again!

Have a Happy Thursday!
