Merry Moments

I’m baaaack!

Miss me? Because I missed you as I greeted 2015 with about ten extra holiday pounds and 40,401 less brain cells.

Hello 2015!

Hello 2015!

While on a blogging break, I hung with my two favorite pussies more than I care to admit in Christmas pajamas.

Cat time.

Yep. Still a crazy cat lady.

I played reindeer games in hopes that Saint Nicholas would soon make an appearance.

Reindeer games.

All dolled up with no Santa in sight.

Ted nestled down in his Juicy Couture Pussy Palace while visions of life without New Cat danced around in his furry head.

Nestled all snug in his Juicy Couture Pussy Palace.

Seriously contemplating how to get rid of NC. I raise sweet cats.

A key for Santa was accompanied by my favorite treat.

Santa's fave.

Who wants milk when you can have Captain?

Christmas morning found Princess B playing her kick ass guitar from Auntie CBXB that makes all kinds of loud, annoying noise.

Rockstar in the making.

Rock star in the making.

While Prince B got his very own puppy from me.

Prince B got a puppy.

I almost wrapped up New Cat but settled on this instead.

And Princess B was so upset that she didn’t receive a stuffed dog too, she taught my mom a less by punching her in the face.

BItch slapping Mama CBXB for not gifting her a stuffed puppy.


And so she stole Prince B’s gift.

Mine. All mine.

Mine. All mine.

While I stole all of the chips and AE French Onion dip in the house.

'Tis the season of overeating....

‘Tis the season of overeating….

Which came in handy as I was leaving for Miami the following day.

Toes in the sand with my chip and dip gut.

But I visited the local Jewish Community Center where I tried to work off my Christmas caloric intake but couldn’t figure out how to use the damn equipment.

What the who?

Workout fail.

Trying to shed ten pounds in one morning didn’t really work out in my favor but that was OK as I was too busy kissing 2014 goodbye to care.

Kissing 2014 away!

I love you Captain.

I also got to hang with some real hipsters who obviously got all dolled up for the big night.

Hot friends

He had chips and dip over the holiday too.

And as it came down to the final seconds of 2014, I celebrated in my normal subtle way.

Double horns for double NYE excitement!

Double horns for double NYE excitement!

There was much to anticipate in the early days of 2015 – like one more Iowa Hawkeye football game. And while I wasn’t with my family to celebrate in our traditional game day ways, we still ‘tailgated’ together.

Representing the Hawks on the beach, bitch.

Overalls on in Tennessee

Preparations for the game being made in Iowa by Prince B.

Princess B could care.

While Princess B could give two shits about the upcoming game, as she was still busy with her brother’s puppy.

When the ominous clouds rolled in over the beach, I shoulda known what was going to happen as the Hawks have had a piss poor season. Even though we were playing an equally dismal team, the University of Tennessee Volunteers, I just knew it would be a good game, forgetting the fact that I attended one of the top party schools in the nation (according to a 2013 report). So I suppose fun in the sun got the better of my team.

Clouds rolled in...

Lightning did not strike for my Hawkeyes.

After a 21-0 Vols lead in the first quarter I was suddenly thrilled that I didn’t make any bets with the Tennessee fans around me. Finally in the third quarter of the game Iowa scored but still managed to make the Tennessee Vols look like a Superbowl team.

FINALLY a touchdown shot!

A much needed celebration touchdown shot.

The Vols had not won a post season game since 2008 and I was less than thrilled that my Hawkeyes were able to grant them a big W with a final score of 45-28. And so I did what any fan would do after losing a hideously named Taxslayer Bowl…

Drowning in my sorrows.

Drowning in my salt water sorrows.

Upon my arrival back to Nashville, I was greeted with fuck you flowers from my buddy and Vols fan, Camo.

Greeted back to Nashville with Tennessee colored flowers compliments of my buddy and Vols fan Camo. So sweet.

A masked insult in a lovely bouquet.

And I thought maybe 2015 wasn’t starting off on the right foot…

Maybe we didn't start the new year off on the right foot afterall...

Um, I think I miss you 2014.

Until I ran into my best friend at Dalts, which made everything right in the world again.

Captain to the rescue!

Skinny Pirates to the rescue!

So now I am back in love with the idea of a new year and I plan to kick 2015’s ass.

I hope you do, too.

    Happy New Year, CBXB! You’re looking fab. Missed you on the break. Don’t feel all bad. My Terps sucked the big bowl banana, too, getting whupped by Stanford. Leave it to your Camo to find a Vol-colored bouquet for you. Sweet and sour flowers! Good work, dude. 🙂 Monday night we gotta root for Ohio State. Oregon is so damn fast all around, but I am a Big Ten dude all the way now. Go Buckeyes. What do you think?

  3. Happy 2015 girl. GET YOUR ASS OUT HERE before I’m too old to party like it’s 1999. 🙂

  4. Happy New Year sexy lady! Keep patying hard!

  5. Bill Hayes says:

    God, I’d love to stumble across one of your party nights. I haven’t got all unnecessary for a while now. Happy New Year!

  6. VivBlogs says:

    I gained 10 over the holidays but I’ve found that at least half of it comes off in a about a week. I think it must be booze weight. Easy come, easy go.

  7. VivBlogs says:

    Did you see my new fucking cat?!?!

  8. Sounds like a fun break! All the best for 2015 and I look forward to reading more adventures from CBXB!

    You are such an awesome ass kicker Jazz Hands. Wish I could party like a rock star the way you so skillfully do. Here is to a Stellar 2015. So glad I got to know ya here my friend.

    • Happy New Year! Hope your holidays were filled with nothing but fun (and lots and lots of writing). So happy taavhweq (that’s from fucking NC who just walked across my keyboard. Never ceases to be annoying!!!!!) that we’ve ‘met’ and become friends here, too. You’re one of my best! XO

    Well there’s good news and bad news.
    The good (actually great) news is that you are back! I was starting to worry. Also looks like you had a super New Year and fun in the sun. Excellent!
    The bad news is I wish I knew you were taking my photo sitting there at the slots with my backwards hat. I would have (tried) sucked in my gut a little.

    • Dammit Phil! If I’d have known that was you, I’d have told you to suck in your gut just a little bit! Did you happen to send me a calendar with your fabulous photos? They look awfully familiar but there was no note in the package it came in…

      • Phil Lanoue says:

        Heh heh, yes that was me that sent you the little desktop calander.
        I had it sent direct and there wasn’t any way to include a note so glad you figured it out.
        Nothing better than a dirty wife beater, backwards hat, and comfortable shoes to enjoy a crazy night out at the slots! 😀

      • Well thank you so much! I will think about my dirty wife beater, backwards hat wearing friend every time I enter my kitchen, which is where you calendar is displayed!

  11. Yes, we did miss you, just a little. 🙂 Looks like you partied enough for the two of us and then some. Love the pic of Ted in his new palace with the cat burglar on the roof. 🙂 Happy New Year to you, Megan.

    • Happy New Year to you my friend! Hope you had a lovely holiday season. I did party enough for the two of us but just enough for the first week of the year. So don’t worry, there will be more CBXB shenanigans to come! XOXO

  12. LifeOfBun says:

    Happy 2015! Is your hair pink?? In that shot where ur celebrating the Hawks? 😮

  13. Holy Puppy Love! And what about the grandma knockdown? Probably best you were away searching out palm trees and cocktails with umbrellas!
    Happy 2015 goddess of all things sequiny and pink!

  14. kellisamson says:
