We might have been a couple of boring old folks hanging out at home for New Year's Eve, but we did everything you are supposed to do to celebrate the New Year. We sipped a little champagne, brought in the New Year with a bang (wink, wink), and ate for luck and money.

Cara had a special New Year's dress:
|The fabric reminds me a little of fireworks.|
|And she can dance in it.|
*Side note: I used this pattern for the dress, which was super easy. I made Cara a longer one to wear with leggings too.

In true New Year's fashion, I have given a lot of thought to my resolution for 2011. Do I make one big resolution, or should I make more than one? Should I just steal these from my friend Kimberly? I love her goals; we're thinking a lot of the same things. Maybe PJ and I should make one together, except that he said his resolution was to become even more of a man than he already is, which sort of excludes me...
In all seriousness, my resolution is to work more on my home and less on my work. Does that make any sense? I feel like I am always struggling with balancing my work and my home, and this year, I want to make a conscious effort to focus more on home. On my family. On my food. On my sewing. On creating an environment in my home that makes us all want to be here. On leaving work at work.
What's your resolution?
