Merry Sweaters

There are many ways in which Christmas stresses us out....

This year for me I realized that tacky Christmas sweaters are a scarce commodity!!

I love any and all reasons to get together with my friends while eatin, drinkin, and bein merry but tacky Christmas sweaters cause me anxiety.

Whoever came up with this idea was a genius! It's a cute idea but since the trend has caught on so has the pressure! You can't find any damn sweaters now because every Tom, Dick, and Harry are attending a tacky Christmas sweater party. Some people find luck at thrift stores but of course not me.

And don't go on Ebay because people have the audacity to sell these things for like $200, who's got that sort of money?!

Luckily, I was able to borrow a tacky sweater, problem was it wasn't technically Christmas so I had to improvise accessories. In all fairness, I waited until the last minute. Also, I'm not sure what this says about me but I did go to Ross Dress for Less and buy a cheap sweater thinking it was tacky only to get home, try it on, and feel as though I could wear it on a daily basis......hmm

I'm challenging all retailers to provide more options! I'm also challenging all moms, grandmas, and aunts to stop hoarding these needed resources!

Despite the struggle, my friends threw a great party :)

Christmas Link-up!

1. My favorite Christmas was....
  • Oh geez that's hard so many great ones! Probably the the Christmas when I was 17, I was grounded but my sweet boyfriend at the time made me forget that. It was the first time he told me to loved me. He got me a Build-a-Bear and he oh so cleverly told me to squeeze the bear's paw when I did it said, "I love you", to which he replied "But I wanted to tell you first". Yes you may take time to take in all the cheesiness! 
2. The worst Christmas I had...
  • 4th grade, when I stopped believing in Santa, I did however get a purple inflatable chair.
3. That one gift that made me scratch my head and say, "Hmmmm" was...
  • Pretty much anything my mother has ever gifted to anyone as a "surprise". If she ventures off of the list you're in for a real treat.
4. One year I....
  • Received a training bra and underwear as a present in front of my humongous family majority of which were male cousins.......needless to say I didn't model around in my present that year.
5. I think the worst gift to give is....
  • Large tins of Wal-Mart popcorn
6. At Christmastime I typically....
  • Watch Christmas Vacation and recite every line.
7. Typically, family Christmas....
  • Means lots of craziness, it's fun though, oh and one side of my family likes to "pick-n-grin" and my mom dances...livin the dream
8. If I could change one thing about the Holiday season....
  • I would bring my family closer so there wasn't as much driving.
9. It is so hard to buy for....
  • My mom, she's getting brought up a awful lot today. Hi Mom!
10. My favorite Christmas tradition is...
  • Looking at Christmas lights and watching Dana Carvey impersonate George Bailey
11. Santa, baby, bring me a ....
  • More like Santa, baby, take away these extra pounds :)

The Price of Luxury

As a blogger I feel as though it is my duty to be helpful....

And inspiring....

Christmas is not getting any further away although my dad always throws out the saying "you're slow as Christmas" this year but that is farthest from the truth this year.

I haven't done any shopping, I don't have a whole lot of folks to buy for. My friends and I are so wonderful we don't get each other gifts. I'm in it for the conversations.

I figured that there are others that are walking in my shoes as well so I decided to give you a list of what to buy for those special people in your life.......

For the person who loves Scotch........a whole hellavu lot

Is it awesome? Yes. Is it practical? Of course. A tad bit on the pricier end for us non Columbian drug lord types. The downside.....LOTS of Ron Burgundy jokes

For that stripper friend......

For $500, again a practical gift because I mean you're set for at least a month before having to do any laundry.

For your Man-Friend

It's beautiful....Indulge yourself. Sell a kidney.

And last but not least.....

For a simple gift-swap

I can't tell if it's just perfume or if it's perfume and a music box or if it's perfume and a chandelier. Either way it can be yours for $35,000.

Now get to shopping!

Thankful Recap

I get excited about the holidays every year because it's the one of the rare times I get to see my extended family. I also hate referring to them as extended family because they are so close and special to me. I've always loved being the oldest cousin on my dad's side and close to the oldest on my mom's because I've always had "little cousins". I never realized how much I would love it when these babies started to grow up and become little adults who bring more joy to my life then I can even begin to explain.

One of my cousins J is seventeen and by far the most laid back person I know. And I of course love this about him! As usual he was the source of my entertainment. The story goes as follows:

J's parents and siblings are members of the Presbyterian denomination and my uncle serves as an Elder. The Sunday before Thanksgiving their minister wanted the congregation to write on a note card what they were thankful for this year. My uncle as well as another Church Elder were chosen to read the note cards aloud to everyone in what was going to be a heartwarming smaller service then the typical Sunday. My uncle said that they read so many cards with so many wonderful things written. People discussed how thankful they were for their families and their health and how they had conquered financial turmoil, and disease in 2013. My aunt and uncle said that it was hard to not get teary-eyed at all the gratitude. As I said this was a smaller service so my cousins were among the few "young people" in the congregation. The other elder besides my uncle read one card allowed and it said, "I'm thankful for toilet paper". And who was guilty of writing such heart felt words, non other than my cousin J!

Despite my aunt and uncle "never being embarrassed so much in their lives",I as well as the rest of our family were rolling in the floor over this story.

The best part was my cousin J's rebuttal, "I didn't realize it was such a serious event"

Here's hoping you and yours had a fabulous Thanksgiving full of shenanigans!

Bound 2 be Thanksgiving

I'm in, I'm out, I'm a so-so blogger. So with that being said...


The new Kanye West song and video is straight up disgusting. I'll be honest I like Kanye West's music, I don't like him all that much but I can get down to some "Runaway" and "Stronger". Plus there is all this buzz that Kim's in the video so I found it on Youtube and I kid you not I thought I found a messed up remix version the song is that bad. And if you haven't heard, Kim is topless but all you see are like shadows.... 

Is Kim some sort of mutant with no nipples?? I'm just confused, I didn't think her schedule would allow for breastfeeding anyways.

I think Chicagogurl via summed it up best:

    "This vid reminded me of those booths in the mall back in the 90′s. The ones where with a hit pop song and a blue screen you too coud make a music video on a island with your other 12 yr old friends"


I am happy to say that Dallas Buyers Club has finally made it's way to Knoxville, we have one theater that shows "independent" films. I'm a huge Matthew M. fan! But this puts me in a predicament because I also want to see Catching Fire. I waited probably two months to see the first Hunger Games movie and I loved it so I don't want to wait on this one but I'm also not in the mood to be trampled by the superfans

I'm incredibly excited about Thanksgiving!!

I'm a proud chihuahua mama! So when I came across Miss Sadie Tripawd, I fell in love :)

Sadie Tripawd is an amputee who has recently had some very unfortunate medical issues and she's needs our help! You can check her out on Vine and Instagram just search Sadie Tripawd below is her Go Fund Me to help with medical expenses. Remember, love your fur babies :)


I can't quit dancing to this song.

And the creepy dream fairy strikes again

There has been some weirdness happening in my life lately......

I'm being slightly dramatic but still....

For one, I had a dream two nights ago that a guy dressed and impersonating Abraham Lincoln exposed himself to me...I will take any suggestion from any dream interpreter out there as to what in H-E-double hockey sticks that is supposed to mean. Maybe it's my love of $5 bills and pennies, or my partiality to honesty and top hats....who knows! Don't even go there about the other half of my nightmare

BTW...they're cousins

I guess that dream is the only really crazy thing.

Did anybody watch The Mindy Project last night?!?! It was sooooo good, my favorite episode so far and I am dying to hang out with Mindy Kaling! I just love her.

Diabeetus, DeWitt, DW, darndest stuff

I find inspiration in the darndest of places....most entertainment websites but still so cray

I have found a story that I hope more than anything is true........

First of all I learned something his last name is Flajnik and I hope that's pronounced EXACTLY how I'm saying it Flaushznick. Also....

And people say that Kris resembles Joyce DeWitt of Three's Company fame (some say Michael Jackson) so I just think DW and Joyce should ride on into the reality TV sunset heaven. How ironic is it that they are both considered to resemble characters of actual legit television......

And DW and DeWitt.....scary

I'm starting to ramble.

Also, I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off and I've literally only eaten cookies and candy all day so bring on the Dia-bee-tus.......

The Thirst is Real

Hopelessly Ever After

Great giveaway happening at Hopelessly Ever After

For this Thirsty Thursday, I am going to share with you a concoction that was inspired by Pinterest

  • One gallon of apple cider (I bought mine at the grocery store)
  • About 1 liter of diet ginger ale
  • Smaller bottle size of Goldschlager or Fireball

Pour it all into a pitcher and stir, serve chilled

It's a big hit

False Advertisement

I've got irrational fears, I'm sure a lot of people do.

I'm afraid I'm going to go to prison for doing nothing wrong...

I'm afraid someone is going to stab me in the chest while sleeping on my back..

And I don't like heights...

Not a snowball's chance in hell.......

I could probably go on and on but then you would just think I was neurotic and you should at least read a few of my posts to think that.

But one fear I do have is that my picture is going to be used in a way that I don't want it to be. Like this past weekend my picture was snapped enjoying Fireball, so far I don't think it's online. It's not that I mind promoting a delicious beverage it's just that A. it is probably a very unflattering photo and B. not every future employer enjoys Fireball.

****I was not actually drinking Fireball in the picture :)

The reason this sort of thing concerns me is because I found this article.

In case you don't want to steer your eyes away from Reba K.'s majesty and click the above link, I'll sum it up. A girl let a photographer take her picture a few years ago, photographer turned around and sold it to a stock photo company and the picture was used for an HIV campaign.

The problem is, this girl is not HIV positive, and now she is outraged and suing because she had no idea the photographer sold her image.

I understand her concern, I mean it's like when Jerry Seinfeld couldn't handle going out with the girl who did hemorrhoid ointment commercials or something like that, no one wants to be thought of as the hemorrhoid girl.

It would be one thing if the ad just said "get tested" or "know your rights" but it says clearly insinuates that she is HIV positive.

What do you think? Is it always a risk having your picture taken?

Do Not Grind on Me Robin Thicke

The whole Miley Cyrus VMA thing is over and done with I know, and the fact that I even bring it up means she wins which really doesn't bother me I like her music I just hate her butt.

But, I have decided I don't like Robin Thicke, I think he's creepy. If he would have just kept his mouth shut and not said, "don't blame me, I was the twerkee". Robin Thicke is 36 years old, if I am making up what I think to be catchy little made up words on already made up words when I'm 36 please send me off to live like Nell.......

Then I saw him on some entertainment news outlet and he said with this smug pedo-smile, "We went out there to raise some eyebrows and provoke some energy, so we accomplished our goal."

In other news, I love Vine. There are some hilarious folks out there. A big trend on vine is #grindonme which is this.....

When I first witnessed this trend I was all.....

But as I continued to watch I realized that there are 11-year olds doing this!!!!

I've decided my children will have zero internet access until their 18!
