Happy New Years!

Happy New Years!

Nope, no year in review post for me....that's a little more time and thought intensive than I want to do.
And no 2012 goals...yet.

Just a simple recap from last night.  We went with 3 other couples to the Lincoln Restaurant.


It was a speakeasy themed event, so we dressed the part. It was a great time!  They had 20's style drinks and a good band.  We had a blast, it was a perfect way to ring in the new year.


The boys also looked equally fabulous, but I'm still waiting for the group shot.




The restaurant was also had beautiful decor, full of pin-worthy decor.   Have you seen the penny floor on pintrest?  Well, this place actually used 1 million pennys to create their floor.  Fitting of the namesake of course.

There was also an awesome multi-sized mason jar light fixture.  It was very very cool...too bad I forgot to take a photo.


This morning (well into the) afternoon, we toasted the new year with some fresh homemade bagel.  (get it??! toasted... bagel- I'm very funny) I made them Friday using Annie's recipe.  It was surprisingly easy. I liked have control of the size and toppings (we made sesame, poppy, everything and parm).  New York bagels they aren't but they are better than store bought...if I do say so myself (John ate two today, so I think he likes them too).

How did you usher out 2011?  Hope your 2012 is off to a nice start!

Looks like a fun evening! We went out in Old Town with several friends- there are always so many good options to chose from for New Year's Eve!

Those bagels look delicious! I've always wanted to try making my own, and now I just may have to...

Happy New Year! My roomies at JMU were from NY and NJ and they would always bring back bagels - and they were SO good. I totally know what you mean when you say they aren't the same. I'll have to pin her recipe for the future!

We spend NYE at home - relaxing and drinking champagne.

Wow, that looks like a ton of fun. I've never heard of Lincoln Restaurant but will definitely put it on the list to try.
