Weekend Winks – Legally Blonde, Margaritas and Partying On

This was one of the best weekends I’ve had in a long, long while. And everything started off on Friday – which as of now, will go down in my world as the most outstanding, fabulous fucking last day of the work week in history.

It all started when I saw on the news that over 250,000 peeps across the pond were protesting the person with the highest position in this country.

I kinda wanted to be a Brit there for a second on Friday.

My fave thing was the spin POTUS put on it…”Many, many protests in my favor.”

Uh huh.

Then I realized via social media that it was just 50 days until the Iowa Hawkeyes first kick-off of the season.

Bring on the swarm!

This was all before 8am. So I was already practically skipping around the office.

THEN SOMETHING ELSE FABULOUS HAPPENED.

You know, I lost my baby girl Precious three weeks ago.

Partner in crime, upstairs now doing her time.

Well, Mama CBXB is in Iowa watching the twins.

Camp Gigi

While Mama was perusing Instagram, Princess B looked over her shoulder and said, “Aunt Juju got a new puppy?”

Wait for it…

I wonder how she got the impression?

Oh hi. It’s just me. Aunt Juju Spoon.

Regardless, if I could still do a cartwheel, I would have been doing them in my stilettos.

More fun after work took place at Avo, where they make avocado margaritas that are beyond.

When I posted my pic on Instagram, Avo reposted on theirs. Pretty sure this means I’m now considered an influencer, right?

Right?

And ending the FriYAY off right, I’ve started a side hustle, Animal Queendom, pet sitting pooches and pussies. So I made a stop at a clients house for a cuddle.

Side hustle doesn’t suck.

Saturday was a sun’s out, bun’s out pool party kinda day.

Three pool stooges.

Prince B and Princess B were very busy catching lightning bugs while I was playing Shamu in the blue water.

Bug catcher shenanigans in very professional attire.

I put on very unprofessional attire to attend a birthday soirée for my Cycling Queen.

Celebrating the birthday gal.

Sunday as I was scrolling through social media, my Facebook memories popped up. While I have a love/hate relationship with them, this one was a photo of Aunt Crazy Pants from a wild night at Robert’s Western World six years ago.

“Take my picture! Put it on Facebook.” Direct quote from ACP.

Funny enough, it was also National Ice Cream Day yesterday too – her favorite fucking indulgence.

Coincidence? I think not.

Rainy Sundays are the best for being lazy as fuck. So, I wallowed in bed, reading a new book finding enough energy to move my ass to the bath.

Who’s the fave gonna be?

I have a new cable system that lets you talk into your remote (which has been around quite a few years but I am slow to change because I hate it BUT this has been a TV watching game changer). With this system, it also suggests new shows I may like because of my previously watched history.

I got sucked into binging a show called The Affair on Showtime.

WHERE HAS BINGING BEEN ALL MY LIFE?

And then it became a family watching affair. I could not stop.

Neither could Fabio.

Neither could Rocky.

Princess Elsa Pants was only present for the chin rubs.

Ruby Sue was the most committed.

I finally had to make Sleepytime tea because even my sleeping pill wasn’t making me want to tear my eyes away from the screen.

It worked.

I found myself waking up at the time I’m due to work this morning but still beat my boss in…although my so-greasy-it-might-have-bugs-in-it hair that I was supposed to wash is in a bun (thank gawd for long hair). As I was scrambling around the mini manse to get my ass to work in 20 minutes, these three were beyond concerned.

Go earn us food money.

Here’s hoping your Monday is as chill as my pussies.

Cheers!

The Surprise Attack

Sometimes when you get a wild hair up your ass you just gotta go with it, which is how I ended up in Iowa for a long weekend.

Surprise kisses from Nashville!

Surprise kisses from Nashville!

I decided to road trip it in order to sneak attack my sister for her birthday and to also get in a twin fix as they just turned two last Saturday.

Hard to believe this was over 700 days ago.

Hard to believe this was over 700 days ago.

Even harder to believe that this feels like 70,000 days ago.

Even harder to believe that this was more than 7,000 days ago.

Suffice to say, it’s going to be a very fun weekend…

Suffice to say, it's going to be a very fun weekend.

Especially if these two have anything to do with it.

Here’s hoping you get a hair up your ass and do something a little wild this weekend, too.

Cheers!

Please Hand Me My Cocktail. NOW.

Ever have one of those weeks you can’t wait to put behind you?

Where, when the day is over you find yourself telling the past 10 hours to SUCK IT?

This picture says it all, doesn’t it?

Three cheers the weekend is here!

Drink up, my pretties (or I will do it for you – *cue evil witch laugh*)…

Now where’s my Skinny Pirate?

CBXB!

Kitty Cocktail Time!

It’s time for cattails!

Ted and I don’t want anyone to be drinking alone, so if you find yourself in that situation over the weekend, please pull up this photo and we’ll drink right along with you. I’d even put my head in your drink if you need me to (and yes, this is a ritual that Mr. Bear and I do extremely often. Way too often. But what can I say? He’s my bebe – that, and I’m a cray cray cat lady).

No one likes to drink alone.

No one likes to drink alone.

Cheers to a fabulous weekend!

Weekend Winks

Oh what fun a Nashville weekend can be…

Friday night chit-chat with my dogphew, Gunner all the way in Iowa.

Saturday morning college football season past time…catchting up on Lee Corso’s picks on ESPN’s College Gameday.

Instant stomach ache glancing at my dad’s choice of vodka…Taaka. The very fancy brand will set you back $11.99 per 1.75 mL. Instant rot gut. Thank God Dad got two bottles for Saturday’s game.

Tasty tailgating treats. Someone could hardly wait for a carrot, as he wanted to wash his rot gut vodka down with something. ANYTHING.

Cleaning off the ‘bib’ of a Hawkeye fan. Salsa missing one’s mouth will stain every time!

Football flag parade in very snazzy footwear. I just love a sandal with a sock, don’t you? Too bad this tradition didn’t help our team win.

Football Feline. Bebe, my mom’s cat, lovin’ up on his favorite cray cray cat lady’s leopard onesie.

What tailgate is complete without Jello shots? Prepping for the Tennessee Titans Sunday game, (while sampling the goods, of course).

Breakfast burritos for 9am party time. Very scary.

LP Field on a cloudy Sunday.

The dreary weather required a thermal and scarf.

This wolf was all kinds of lonely until he bumped into a new feline friend in the booze line before the game.

Proof that dogs and cats can get along.

The Titans taking the field.

Skinny Pirate halftime snack. A poor girl’s guide to getting cheap game day booze…stash the loot in your boot. Enter stadium. Purchase Diet Coke. Mix cocktail in bathroom stall. Classy, I’m aware.

A Halloween Miracle! Santa and Cat Woman shootin’ the breeze.

A beautiful day to lose a football game!

Drowning in our post game sorrows at Dick’s Last Resort. I don’t understand my hat…does that mean it’s true?

In some recovery today, as I’m already desperately anticipating the next two-day vacay at the end of this week. Football season can be so rough.
