Happy New Year from J&K

2 Jan

Happy New Year!

We are both so excited for this new year, and due to the extraordinary amount of excitment we both have; we skipped the long lines, the $100 entry fees, the gin and tonic spills, and the headache of having to flag a cab down home and stayed inside like little ol’ ladies. We know. What?

This is the first year in a long time, that we haven’t strutted our stuff on the dance floor as the clock runs down. Don’t think we’re getting comfortable, because we love a night out. Everything came down to just poor timing, and honestly?..$100+ to get into some okay club, when we would much rather spend that money at Zara (or Club Monaco, Sephora, J.Crew, etc., you get the picture) was just all we could think of when Dec.30th rolled around.

Julie was lovely enough to have me and one of our close girlfriends over for a home cooked dinner, some champagne, and good ol’ Ryan Seacrest hosting in Times Square. We sat down and felt grateful for another year and felt the anticipation of the year to come. A lot of change has come in 2012, and we look forward to sharing all of our experiences with you this 2013. Some of our resolutions include seeing friends and family more often, upgrading our wardrobes, posting and meeting other bloggers, saving up, and travelling. Of course, we can’t forget about the classic resolutions such as “eating better and being fit”, right? Haha, you can expect a bit of that from us as well. Do you have any resolutions?

Emily’s blog has been one of my very favorites, long before I started blogging myself. She is a big inspiration to not only me, but thousands of girls and women who love food, beauty, home decor and fashion. Her posts are always vibrant, colorful and full of life. And her witty and bubbly personality shines through her writing. You can always depend on Emily to have a trick up her sleeve when it comes to perfecting those decadent chocolate chocolate chip cookies, or some blueberry crumb bars for brunch with the girls on Sunday.
