My sincere wishes to you for a very happy and safe New Year's Eve! We will be on the road, but at noon and not midnight. It will be a very low-key day with the family. No fancy parties for us : )
If you're hanging around too, check out the Fusion Challenge blog site. We are announcing the new Design Team, and you will not believe the amount of talented ladies we have! It's really going to be a place you'll want to stop by, both for inspiration and to play.
Speaking of inspiration, how cool is this wall? We had lunch at Macy's Walnut Room downtown Chicago on Christmas Eve. The wait for a table was 2 hours, but it has definitely been worse (I've heard 4-5 hours on the weekends before Christmas). Since I had time to kill, we went back to this awesome wall I saw in the furniture department to take a few pictures. While I was fixing the settings on my camera, the kids got out their video games. Love this way better than a posed picture! State & Lake is the intersection of their store.
Here's the tree that you eat around. Very pretty, but it's decorated the same as last year. When it was Marshal Field's the decorations used to be themed, and they were different each year so it was something to look forward to. Sadly, the window decorations were also the same for the first time this year. It's tradition for us so we'll probably still keep going. I think I'm the only one in our family who notices these things : )
Anyway, Happy New Year!!
