How did you all see in the New Year?
New Year’s Eve is one of those nights that I always enjoy for its sentiment but don’t always feel the need to actually go out and celebrate. In general I dislike holidays that ‘force’ you into celebrating, like Halloween or New Year’s Eve – if I want to go out, I’ll go out, and not on a night when everything is overpriced and everywhere is crowded full of people that might not be who I want to party with!
So I was all set for spending New Year’s in, but then we got an invitation from some friends to attend a Cirque du Soleil-themed gala dinner. Celebrating with people we like and in an environment that’s glamorous and fun and full of good food and music and dancing – it was perfect!
Here are some photos from the night (and a couple of videos too – the circus performers were amazing!). A lot of them are blurry, partly because we’re still getting used to the iPhone camera and partly because there were a few drinks imbibed ;).
So Happy New Year to everyone! I’ll be back tomorrow with a post on goals for this year, and my vision board for 2012 :).
What did you do on New Year’s Eve?
The New Year’s outfit:
An amazing juggler (see below for a video of her performance that I posted on my YouTube account):
Awesome decor – check out those mask centrepieces!
The contortionist was mind-blowing – two videos below (the second one is craziest!) – I think it would take a LOT of yoga for me to be able to do any of this!:
I was pretty excited about the chocolate fountains:
Notice anything funny about this picture? Perhaps the abnormally tall person on STILTS in the background??
I think I win the “craziest expression of the night” award while that Cirque du Soleil statue behind me wins “creepiest expression of the night” – we’re a great pair :).
And the Conga line got everyone dancing, so the night of course ended well 😉
