Happy New Year!



Today is the start of Chinese New Year. It's an extra special year for me since it is the year of The Ox. It'll be another 12 years before it comes around again. Here is my lucky outfit day...

Red wrap top-Charlotte Russe, white tank-Gap, Converse One Jeans-Target, Unisa tan pumps-Off Fifth Saks, Gold medallion necklace-NY&Co.

Yesterday we had a big celebration with my family. Tonight Will and I are going to see some lion dancers at a local restaurant. Although my family is very "Americanized", this is the one celebration we have always cherished. I'm too old and now married to receive the lucky money envelopes, but I look forward to passing these traditions on to my future family.

Gung hei faat choi (Happy New Year) or as my family likes to say "Don't hate fat boys". Yeah, I told you we were Americanized...

That is such a cute blouse on you; very attractive. I love orange and paired w/blue jeans, it's a great look.
