So this is the new year

I hope you all had a fantastic New Year's! I sure did. So much, in fact, that I neglected to take very many pictures. Whoops. At least you can tell how awesome and sparkly my tights are.

So this is the new year
Urban Outfitters dress; JC Penney tights.

We spent the night drinking the stuff below, and made pretzels and enchiladas instead of the fondue. And we didn't have confetti, but sometime after midnight people started throwing popcorn. I don't know why.
So this is the new year

When I stop and think about it, 2010 was a pretty big year for me.

I received a Bachelor of Accountancy

I started grad school (and got my first 4.0 since high school)

I turned 21

I went to Las Vegas, Orlando, Seattle, and San Francisco

I went through what seemed like countless amounts of interviews....and then landed my dream job

I also started a blog--and successfully completed the 30 for 30 challenge

2011 is going to be another big year for me.

I'll be receiving a Master of Accountancy

I'll be starting said dream job in the fall, in a new city

I'll also be taking the CPA exam

I'm so excited to see what else this year will have in store for me.

I was also thinking about resolutions, and I honestly couldn't have put it into any better words than when Kristen talked about The Beautiful Project. I can get really hard on myself sometimes, and this year I'm going to remind myself that while I can't always be perfect, I'm more than good enough just the way that I am.

I'd also like to stop eating candy for breakfast and clean my room once in a while, but let's take one thing at a time, shall we?


  1. So cute! I love those tights! You gotta bring the sparkle on NYE, and I think it's sucha cute way to do it. Sounds like you had a great year. I look forward to seeing what 2011 brings you, I am so glad I found your blog!

  2. I wish you all the best in 2011!!


    Happy, Happy New Year!


  3. Aww, Lydia, thanks for the mention in your post. That is so sweet, and I'm really glad that you want to be a part of the The Beautiful Project with me. It was a bit scary for me to put that out there, but seeing a positive response makes me glad I did.

  13. You aren't SUPPOSED to eat candy for breakfast? Some people have mochas - and that's just a grown up way to have candy. So I say, candy is just fine!
