How was your weekend, lovebugs? I hope it was full of merriment! We’re practically bursting with Christmas spirit after an evening at the Dallas Symphony! And then Saturday night, Mr. SP had his own gig with some musician friends, so there was lots of swooning going on.
You all know he’s “entertaining”, but did you know he used to be a professional musician? He’s in a different profession now, but if you follow my IG Stories, you know there’s always music in our house. It never gets old watching him perform, either on a stage or at home.
In our early days, New Year’s Eve was a big deal because he’d always have shows. I’d get to dance and play with my friends while he performed, then at midnight he’d pause long enough for a big smooch. I think he knew how much that made me swoon, because one year he pulled me on-stage and proposed in front of the huge crowd (read more about it here)!
He teases that he figured I couldn’t say no in front of a riled-up crowd of people celebrating New Year’s Eve (Canadians, no less! #eh), but joke’s on him because I was waiting to marry him from the moment we met!
Almost 22 years later, our New Year’s Eves look a lot different, but they’re always a special night to us. We usually spend them at home with the kids and takeout, but we can still tear it up when given the opportunity!
This dress is great year-round, but especially fun for holiday parties and New Year’s Eve. It even comes in a stunning red if you like to make a bigger statement! I love that it’s one-part classic with the sheath fit and lace, and one-part sassy with the ruffles and neckline. The length is also short enough to be fun, but not so much you’ve slipped into the danger-zone!
Fit Tip: It’s true to Women’s sizing, and I’m wearing a regular 0. I think the petite sizing would be best left to those of you under 5’1″ or still in your 20s. #justsayin

Don’t let these pics fool you, the man drives me mad sometimes, and we are what you might call ‘passionate fighters,’ but the arguments are always short-lived because I know in my heart he’s the one for me. The confidence and security his unwavering love has brought to my life are truly a Godsend, and I wouldn’t want to walk this journey with anyone else. Okay, maybe some days I wish it were Ryan Gosling, but I’m sure Mr. SP has his dreams, too. 😉
It doesn’t hurt that he’s freaking hilarious, either! Remember kids…looks, swagger, money, and jobs can all fade and change…but funny is always funny! How do you ring in the New Year? What’s your best memory from New Year’s Eves of past?!?
