The Busy Giffs: Oh What A Night! New Years Eve at Foxwoods!

January 7, 2017

Oh What A Night! New Years Eve at Foxwoods!

Disclaimer: We were invited as guests to the event, however all thoughts and opinions are my own. 

I can not believe it's already the 7th! A full week of 2017 has already gone by!

I posted my goals for the year and I'm already working towards them! One of my big ones is to go out with David, just us,at least once a month.  It doesn't need to be anything fancy or crazy, just the two of us.  Our schedules are so crazy that we literally go months without having time for just us.  We've only spent 2 nights together away from our children and Emma is closer to 6 than 5 now!

Knowing how much we're both going to be trying to make time together a priority, we were thrilled when Foxwoods Resort Casinos invited us to their Red Carpet Hollywood New Years Eve Party! Foxwoods is only about an hour drive from us so it's an easy destination.  Far enough away that we are away, but close enough that we can get home quickly if needed.  I love Foxwoods Resort Casino anyways (check out my Holiday shopping day on Instagram!) so I figured it was the perfect place to kick off the New Year, focusing on time with just David and I.

We walked into the most gorgeous setting-- perfect Old Hollywood Glamour. Pretty much everyone who knows me, knows my obsession with the Great Gatsby, and I even looked at David and said "I think we stepped into one of Gatsby's parties!" Huge chandelier, large white plume feathers, red roses, movie reels... it was breathtaking...

The live band was absolute perfection...

And dinner... oh my gosh...

I honestly expected a very "wedding/function" type of meal, seeing how many people they were serving, but again, Foxwoods Resort Casino blew me away. I mean, check out our gorgeous four course dinner...

The shrimp was delicious and the filet was cooked so well, I used a fork to cut it. Perfectly medium rare... seriously, I could have taken a nap after eating it!

Thankfully, Foxwoods had some amazing dinner entertainment for us, so falling asleep really wasn't an option! A Frank Sinatra impersonator, Marilyn Monroe (again, a perfect impersonator), and a slightly burlesque performance!

They were amazing and just what we needed to get out on the dance floor too!

As always, I was wowed by Foxwoods Resort Casino.  Their event was gorgeous, and over the top, and so much more than I ever could have expected! It was such an amazing way to ring in the new year and really the perfect way to start a year focused on each other.

xo, Heather
