I've Watched It 287 Times

Hiya! I hope everyone had a fabulouso holiday. I did, and have cute pictures to post but until then.....

Feast your eyes on this. Just to preface, my auntie recommended this book to me a couple years ago and it is fantastic. I read it twice. The fact that they cast Robert 'Edward' Pattinson in the role is a pure koinkidink. But greatly appreciated.

It's called 'Water for Elephants' by Sara Gruen. Read. It.

The Gift that Keeps on Giving

So we were having the 'time of our life' at our Ugly Christmas Sweater Party
See picture for proof

and then some spiked Eggnog entered our lives,

and then we thought it would be a good idea to pass around the Eggnog,

and then instead of getting up to go get cups for the Eggnog, we thought it would be better to take a swig from the bottle and pass it around,

and then we continued having the time of our lives,

and then we recovered on Sunday from the 'Time of Our Life Ugly Christmas Sweater Party',

and then on Monday morning half the party woke up with chills, aches, and vomiting...

Ah, the gift that keeps on giving..

Christmas Crack

If you don't know already, I have a serious sweet tooth.

Like scary serious, seriously.

I have heard sugar is like a drug, and I have come to terms with the fact that I, am indeed addicted.

With that said, here is a delicious holiday candy recipe that is super easy and super delicious! It coined the name because once you start eating it, you cannot stop.

( I actually don't have any factual evidence that this is what happens when you do crack, but I'm just assuming and let's be honest it has a cute ring to it, so let's go with it)


6 Cups of Corn Chex

2 Cups of Pretzels

2 Cups of Dry Roasted Peanuts

1lb of Plain M&M's

1lb of White Candy Coating

Mix first 4 ingredients in a large bowl

Melt candy coating and then stir into ingredients in bowl

Spread mixture on wax paper to cool

So if sugar is a drug and I am giving you my 'Christmas Crack' recipe, does that make me a drug dealer?

I will ponder this and get back to you.

Ugly Christmas Sweater

Ladies and Gents,

As of today, I am the proud owner of one ugly Christmas sweater. (Thanks Ebay!) I was actually nervous as I was counting down the last two minutes of the auction. Then I shouted, "I WON!" even though it shouldn't really be called winning something, if you have to pay up at the end...

Here are some things to ponder.

Why did I purchase this ugly Christmas sweater? For the 'Ugly Christmas Sweater Party' I'm attending of course.

A few more, and you are on your own on these.

Why does Rudolph only have one hoof?

Why does Rudolph have so much 'junk in the trunk'?

What's with the flag? Are they one a golf course?

Is that tree smiling at me?

So many questions from such a simple little sweater.

Also, I can't guarantee I won't wear this sweater more than once, like on actual Christmas Day.

Just sayin'.

To My Favoritest Brother In The Whole World!!!!

You've come a long way, baby.

And P.S.

(And if you say it again, I'm not afraid to twist your arm behind your back and stuff socks in your mouth...just like the old days)
