new years eve

Have you got some hopping plans for New Year’s Eve?  I do.  Mine include: chamomile tea with honey, a book on my new Nook reader, a heating pad, and lots of painkillers.

I know, I know, I like it a little crazy.

If you’re in need of some tunes for a shindig you’re hosting tonight, here’s a New Year’s Eve playlist from last year:

  1. Lindsay :

    oh! great playlist. + happy new year to you!
    love, lindsay

    • Allison :

      Happy New Year to you too!

  2. Katelyn :

    Oh, hope you get better soon! Did you get a nook color? I got one for Christmas and you can lend to other nookcolor lovers :) I haven’t read Meg Calbot but if you have one, I’d borrow it for a few weeks.

    • Allison :

      Oh sweet, yes, let’s be friends! I got a nook color too. I’ve only bought one book so far, Outlander, but I’m more than happy to share as soon as I finish. I don’t know how to share, but tell me and let’s do it!

  3. Jamie S :

    What a great list!

    • Allison :

      Thanks Jamie, I hope you had a great New Year’s Eve!

  4. Beth :

    Ok – here is a thought on the make-up….how would you put make up on on a day you don’t want to wear make -up…like a house cleaning day….but you don’t want your husband to pass out when he walks in the door and see’s your real face! (I don’t want to put on a full face for the last few hours of the day)

  5. Camille :

    oh, great playlist! You’re definitely a romantic, and I love that you included HCJ. He’s a staple of mine. Here’s one you’ve missed: Michael Buble’s “Sway”. I’ll let you in on a secret: It’s the perfect beat for curling biceps ;)
