This song made think of my friend, Grace….she jokes about drinking in order to put up with her family. Now let’s hope she doesn’t kill me for this…LOL
Christmas is a time, a special time of year With peace and joy and happiness and, wonderment and cheer Opening your presents underneath the tree And spending countless hours with your family
That’s why I’m drinking drinking drinking I’m gonna drink all day I’m coming home for Christmas and my family’s insane Just got to make it through the day And there’s no other way I’m gonna get drunk, drunk, drunk on Christmas

Ok, I’ve stuffed myself with food the way you stuff a plushie at Build-a-Bear! Now, I’m ready for Christmas. No, I don’t mean the dinner, I mean the decorations. I think the delicious food makes me so complacent that I can embrace my belly and laugh right along with jolly ol’ Santa!!! In fact, I might just waddle around behind him and embrace feeling small in his shadow. *laughs* Seriously though, its always been a tradition at my house to decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. I’ve never been one to decorate every room in the house. I keep the decor in the living room and dining room, maybe a little ceramic tree in the guest bathroom provided there’s room. Once upon a time, I did the whole yard and lights on the building, but I’m too old and lazy to be climbing on ladders nowadays. Okay, mostly scared and lazy, ok? I’m not the most graceful person on the planet.
I don’t want a lot for Christmas There is just one thing I need I don’t care about the presents Underneath the Christmas tree I just want you for my own More than you could ever know Make my wish come true oh All I want for Christmas is you

Every night I wanna live in color through a white-blue screen I got a technicolor vision going vivid in my white-blue jeans I know it’s complicated ’cause everyone that I’ve dated Says they hate it ’cause they don’t know what to do with me, do with me Know that my identity’s always gettin’ the best of me I’m the worst of my enemies and I don’t really know what to do with me Yeah, I don’t really know what to do with me
I recently broke down and got the Audible app. While I do enjoy the soothing tone of certain voices reading to me, I know how to listen to a sample of the narrator to know whether or not I should listen to a book or actually read it. There’s just nothing quite like the actual reading of a book while enjoying a cup of coffee or tea, along with the occasion petting of an insistent cat. I adore books. Not just the reading of them, but the possession of them as well. The distinct smell of an old library, a used book store…even a new book store with a built in coffee chain offering overpriced drinks and stale pastries…each place holds its own nuance. Well, I could ramble about this all day. What I really want to tell the ladies reading my blog today is to check out this outfit from Seniha. OMG, I love it so much, I’ve worn it for three days. Get the fatpack and have fun with it. I’m pretty sure you won’t want to take it off either.♥

You can take everything I have You can break everything I am Like I’m made of glass Like I’m made of paper Go on and try to tear me down I will be rising from the ground Like a skyscraper, like a skyscraper
Life is messy. There’s no doubt about that. Anyone with pets or children will attest to stepping in something questionable in the middle of the night. Nothing will throw off your day faster than cleaning up a mess like that first thing in the morning. Clearly, life isn’t perfect, but rather than compare our lives to those we see on our lovely screens…I think its better to embrace it. I know my life isn’t what I had hoped it would be and I changed my ideas about my life several times over the course of my life. Not once did I envision my life to be what it is now. I jokingly said I’d be a fat old woman who hates kids and has a bunch of cats. I don’t even have that! I mean, I don’t LOVE kids, but I surely don’t hate them. Ok, I am fat, so I got that goal down easy enough. Wait, was that a goal….oh god, I manifested that shit! Fuck me. Well, ok, so what. I’m fat, I got a grocery list of health problems and no insurance. I’m still here. I have rather decent roof over my head. *looks down at my fat body* Uhm, clearly, I have plenty to eat. *laughs* I have two running cars. I have one tiny feline terrorist and the most perfect smartest dog in all da world. And I still have my wonderful, albeit crazy, Mom. I am freaking blessed! Sure, I struggle financially, but it sure could be worse. My condo and my cars are paid in full. That’s a true blessing. As Thanksgiving (yes, its a U.S. holiday) comes sliding around the corner, I have a lot to be thankful for and I’m thankful that I do. Whether you celebrate this holiday or not, I think its a nice reminder to take some honest inventory of the blessings in our lives. It’s easy to forget those blessings as we go about our mundane daily routines. If you’re blessed enough to be reading this, it means you’ve been blessed with a little bit of time and the luxury of internet. While, I’m not so sure you need to be grateful for reading my ramblings, I’m pretty sure you’ve got your own plethora of blessings to behold. Oh…and don’t think I forgot you. I am very very grateful that you have taken that little bit of time from your life to read my words. More grateful than I can properly express, but Thank You.♥
I got ahead of myself when taking this picture. I totally meant to change my hair. In editing it dawned on me that this scene was looking like one of those from a movie where the girl always looks on point. As people magically wake up with perfect hair and make up. Let’s not even talk about how pristine they are while working out, barely sweating at all, just a glistening…as if they have been sprayed with light iridescent oils. Well, this picture is in between and instead of reshooting, I figured I’d just have a laugh at my own mistake. I’ve gotten used to laughing at myself over the years, so this is nothing new.
This week has been insanely busy and crazy. This weekend will be more of the same. I’ve been all over the place emotionally and mentally. However, today I was squealing with delight when I saw that my sim, Curiosity Lake, was featured in the official Destination Guide. I have to say that I’m rather chuffed. (Not an American term, but I like it.) Gonna keep this post short and sweet, cuz I got a heap of work to do today. I hope you all have a great weekend and if you’re looking for something to do tonight, I’ll be hosting the Bonfire Bash part over at Burrow tonight and would love to see you!
One of the many brands that I’m blesssed to work for and with is Apple Blossom. Dulce36, or I know her, Reyhan is one of the most beautiful souls I’ve had the pleasure to work with on the grid. Not only is she incredibly talented, but she is still learning! I’ll admit that not all of her designs are suited to my personal taste, but one thing is for sure. The fit like a glove! I’m super excited about this Amarantha dress that she did for the Bonfire Bash edition of The Liaison Collaborative. It’s simple and plain, yet is just slightly hiked up on one side to give you a bit more sex appeal, plus the trim is incredibly detailed. I love dresses like this, because they provide the perfect opportunity to personalize the look by adding a few accessories. This is especially great for me, as I am an accessories fiend. I highly recommend you drop by the event before it closes on the 26th and try the demo. I’m sure you’ll fall in love.
