2010 Fades into 2011

Happy Monday! I say that with completely fake enthusiasm as I am having the hardest time saying goodbye to the holidays and facing....."routine" again. Eeek. I shudder at the thought. So before I face all the work emails and the post-Christmas cleaning and, oh yeah those resolutions that were supposed to start three days ago, I thought I'd share a few pictures of my New Years Eve and revel in my holidays one last time.

Stopped off at my parents on my way out of town: Me and Dad 

Kristin and I went to Charleston for the weekend and grabbed a late dinner at Taco Boy. This place is a popular Charleston hot-spot and it's not hard to see why. It's multi-colored glass globes hanging from the ceiling and permanently-strung, old-fashioned bulb Christmas lights create the perfect, whimsical setting. And their fresh Mexican food is to die for! Seriously.

Amazingly enough, I happened to find the four people in the entire world who didn't know how to take a picture! You know you're in trouble when they try "looking through" the digital screen. Yikes! Sadly, these are the best two pictures from the night...told ya, I found the worst pictures takers ever!

After dinner, we spent the rest of the evening at the Vendue Rooftop where we rung in the New Year watching fireworks on the Charleston skyline. Oh, and all the cute, sparkly dresses I blogged about? Totally got nixed when I learned of our rooftop plans - Hence the jean ensem. Since I was still doing battle with the world's worst cold ever known, I chose warmth and health over freezing and possible death....Luckily there were plenty of heaters and tons of coffee and I found the perfect bag with just enough room for an entire Kleenex box in the bottom. Sexxxxy!


Soooo, anyone else out there having a case of the mondays? If so, how are you getting through it? I'm hoping some time spent at the gym will get me psyched geared up (let's be honest!) for the rest of the week!

I've been totally MIA the past few weeks with the holidays being in full swing! I was definitely NOT ready to come back to work today... I think I hit the snooze button like 7 times!

Glad you had a good holiday break! :)

New follower...and totally know what you mean with a major case of the Mondays....especially since the husband had today off. Though I have tons to get done today and am keeping busy at work, I keep looking at the clock and the minutes are going by in slow-motion. I asked for a pause button in life...but for the good things in life:)

I feel the exact same way you do, dreading going back to work and the routine of "life". I'm having my tall americano from Starbucks and reading through my favorite blogs...yours included :)Then I'm off for a long run, that always helps me clear my mind.

Mandy said...

Taco Boy sounds great!

Cute blog too - I can't wait to catch up on everything I've missed.
