Happy Holidays, A-holes!!!

Ah, it's the holiday season -- that magical time of the year when you wanna sip hot cocoa by the fire and shove people outta the way for a deal on a flat-screened t.v.  Cause let's be real, y'all.  December tends to turn the very best of us into giant assholes.

The New Year's Guinea Pig Attack

The older I get, the more I realize that New Year's Eve is totally overrated.  I mean, seriously, what's the point of getting all dolled up to spend a shit-ton of money to fight a bunch of annoying crowds to risk being hit by a drunk driver and to then be disappointed that the night wasn't nearly as fabulous as you'd hoped it would be?  That's why my husband and I made the executive decision many moons ago to just stay home and have our own little family party to ring in the new…

Halloween 2011 Recap

 

Once again one of my very favorite holidays has passed me by faster than I could say, "Boo!"  Yes, Halloween has come and gone and left me with a massive candy overdose.  I seriously don't think I'll be able to look at a Twix bar the same without puking ever again (at least not until next week anyway).  The festive weekend was certainly chalked full of all kinds of fun while it lasted though.
