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!
