Happy New Year!

This post is about 18 days late, and my blogging in general is about 2 months overdue!
Eek! Sorry, guys! Life and the holidays got busy.
But, I hope you are all having a wonderful January!

I don't really make New Year's resolutions, but I do tend to purge and organize my house when I am packing up the Christmas decorations. I filled about 6 grocery bags for Goodwill these past couple weeks, and am feeling good about my organized house...although I do miss my festive Christmas stuff.
Ah well. Until next year, Christmasy friends.

I stayed in this New Year's Eve, and actually had an awesome time.
New Year's Eve is actually my favorite holiday. I find it romantic, full of excitement, and i love fireworks! But I find this usually leads to my being let down by whatever plans I make, sadly.
So, this year I planned on staying in alone, made fun snacks, had some wine, watched a couple movies and watched the ball drop on TV. And all in PJs from the comfort and warmth of my couch. And promptly in bed by 12:15am. Sounds amazing to me!

I totally went overboard on the snacks, as per always. I should have had people over, because I made snacks to feed a crowd!
They made for good lunch foods to last the rest of the long weekend though, so all good!

...this post really ought to be sponsored by Trader Joe's, ha! Their cheese + caramel corn is amazing! As is the caramelized onion cheddar cheese. And I put some cranberry spice marmalade I had over warm brie cheese and drizzled it with honey. Yes, please.
And olives. Because...always olives.
I made brownies, too!

I hope you all are having a good January! And I hope I will have time to start blogging more soon!
What is your favorite part of a New Year?
