New Year’s Eve: The Most Overrated Night of the Year

Can I get an amen?

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always tried so hard to make New Year’s Eve special, and by special I mean, spending it with a group of people, planning a party, and trying to make it the best night of the year. But you know what, that’s just too much pressure, and honestly, it never has been the best night of the year. Of course we’ve made some wonderful memories with friends over the years, but the best nights are usually the most random and not necessarily a perfectly planned evening with fancy dresses, overpriced drinks and crowded bars.

So this year, we’re doing things a little different. But first, a look back at NYE pasts …



[2006/2007 – Bentonville]



[2007/2008 – Shogun, Fayetteville]



[2008/2009 – volunteer trip to Texas]


[2010/2011 – Shawn and Rhagen’s, Rogers]



[2011/2012 – Crabby’s; Eddie Haskell’s, Rogers]

So this year, we’re going to be an old married couple and do things quietly. We have a reservation for two at Petit Bistro, then we’ll be snuggling up with the pup to watch the ball drop at midnight.

As they say in The O.C., “The way you spend your New Year’s Eve is the way you’ll spend the rest of the year.” Well, if my 2013 is just as relaxing and content as my evening with husband and Olli, I’ll take it.

  1. Love this! I’m actually jealous that you will be having such a romantic night with your man and fur child. Good for you to be able to happily spend quality time together 🙂
