Happy New Year!!! I hope you all had a fantastic evening last night, whether at a party or spending it in with the ones you love. No matter how you rang the new year in as long as you were in a happy moment, I take that as a sign of how your year will be (Nathan and mine will be full of love).
So I know I said yesterday that I would have a great recipe for today's post, but with all the excitement last night, I am honestly a little tired, no a lot tired lol. I have literally fallen asleep probably 3 times since we got home, so I will do a full post with recipe tomorrow (pinky promise) and tonight's will be a recap of my first ever romantic New Years :)
In all my years I have never done a romantic New Years just for two. I've done the parties, bars, countdowns with crowds of people, and even just staying home, but nothing as romantic as what Nathan had planned. Nathan had planned a romantic New Years celebration for two and had an aspect that I love, it was almost a complete surprise. All I was told was to pack a bag for overnight. Nathan had bought me a beautiful dress from Victoria Secret and a killer pair of blue heels, so I was really excited. I threw a bag together, put on my comfy Lulu Lemon pants, grabbed my leather jacket and new Louis Vuitton, and headed out the door about 6pm. As we headed towards Dallas Nathan started to give me more clues of what our night would entail; a romantic hotel room at a very nice hotel, late dinner reservations, and finally ringing in the new year with fireworks and champagne, just the two of us (and it sounded like perfect night to me!). We pulled up to a huge beautiful hotel, the Hilton Anatole (check it out here!), with an Asian inspired decor, an endless art collection, beautiful lighting, and impeccable customer service. Nathan had reserved a beautiful room on the 17th floor with a view of downtown Dallas, perfect view to where the fireworks would be displayed. The room was also Asian inspired decor with one extra to it, a bottle of champagne already on ice with two glasses waiting for us to enjoy :) (not that we didn't bring some with us). Nathan popped the cork on the bottle as soon as we were settled so I could get ready for dinner while enjoying some bubbly, and considering it was complimentary it was quite delicious!
