Anyone else love the holiday season?
We packed up the Nashville sleigh and headed to see the Iowa twins for their third visit from Santa.
Precious the chug came as my mascot and was voted most popular over the Christmas weekend.
She was squeezed, kissed, loved and given the new name Pweshy by the twins.
When the chug was napping, Auntie CBXB’s makeup bag was quite the exciting place to play.
Both twins obviously have a future in the beauty industry as I demonstrated their mad application skills.
After scrubbing my face for what felt like a solid eight hours, we moved on to matching manicures.
And then…it was Christmas eve Griswold family style.
Speaking of the Griswolds, Dada CBXB has been watching my adopted feline twins Clark and Cousin Eddie since my main squeeze Ted E. Bear has been adjusting to life with inflammatory bowel disease and pancreatitis (both treatable in cats!). Since he’s had them the past few months, Dad’s fallen in love and we made it official as I pretended to be the Griswold character Aunt Bethany and wrapped up my damn cats, gifting them to the big guy.
Santa delivered all kinds of festive fun but I decided to dress up as his sparkly girlfriend for the shits and giggles of merriment.
The biggest gift under the tree helped someone think they were hot shit taking their new power wheel out for a spin.
I was also not hating life as I bonded with my new dogphew, Spike. He is a six month old golden doodle who is already the size of a small polar bear and makes the best cuddle partner.
In not so merry news, I recently lost my job so it was only fitting that my favorite gift was a coffee mug with a well known slogan from the movie Bridesmaids that has become my personal motto.
But I’ve still got my sparkle with the help of my mini me.
Here’s hoping your holiday weekend was filled with lots of jingling bells and cocktails!
Buon Anno dear……… it’s maybe a long time that you didn’t hear from me but I’m back again !! Pweshy is such a cutie and the twins will definitely have a GR8 future in the makeup industry, who knows they will make a new famous look (just starting with you) 🙂 ! Compliments for your Christmas sweater, I thought it was awesome and you can be poor but you’re always the most sparkle fun-girl of town !! 🙂
Hello! Happy New Year my gorgeous friend! Sparkles always help a poor gal fun. 🙂
Happy New Year my sparkly friend!
Really lousy having to lose the job at the holidays, but I know something great will come along soon. Hope you and The Bear are having a great week. Looks like winter temps finally decided to park it’s ass here this week.
Hello! Happy Holidays to you! Hope you are feeling better. The Bear and I are ready for 2016 – I bet you are too. Happy New Year!
I miss my blog buddies! I am back. I think. My baby is 4.5 months old and I am emerging into the world again. Awesome makeup job – I think you have the makings of a professional there on your hands. 🙂
Hey girl! Welcome back! Your little one is beyond adorable. Happy New Year!
Good to see you bring your sparkle back here for all too see. Glad you had the usual Christmas merriment family style.
I left a comment late in the game on your last post so I will hit you with it here too. It seems we have a bit of a Rose Bowl Rivalry coming up, you and I. Stanford vs Iowa in the tournament of roses. Lets go Cardinal!! Let me know what you think. A little friendly smack talk can be so much fun. LOL
SMACK TALK IT UP SON! I think that a Hawkeye is a much more treacherous bird than a Cardinal. Just sayin!
LOL. That may be, but the Stanford Cardinal moniker is actually in reference to the color Cardinal red. Which is exactly the color of Hawkeye blood. So BLAM!!!!
Oh no, you lost your job?? It’s their loss.
Glad you had a great time for Christmas. Your posts always make me smile. I do have to admit that I have this thing where I dislike doodle related dogs. I don’t know why. I just do. Lol.
Ha! Doodle related dogs…that just sounds funny. Although Spike is more of doodle related horse due to his size! Losing the job bites the big one but onward and upward, right? I’m SO ready for 2016! Hope you are too! XOXO
I love your posts so much, you always make me laugh! It seems like you had a Merry Christmas, despite being poor. I’m SURE with your sparkle, you will find a new job in no time! Best wishes for a fabulous 2016!
Thanks for the positive comments! 🙂 I’m ringing in the new year with so much gusto, 2016 MUST be a better year! Hope you have a safe and fabulous New Year!
I wish you a wonderful 2016! Ring that new year in! 2015 is gone!!
