And just like that 2012 has come to an end

I hope everyone had fun filled festivities with loved ones over the holidays. We ran off to Laughlin for a night and then to Phoenix for a few days and returned home in time for a Christmas staycation at the South Point.Good times! As usual I have pics and details to share and no time to share them, but I'm going to make time in the new year.

I'm looking to shift focus on more things that bring me joy. In 2013 I want to strive to improve my days by doing something for my mind, my body, my spirit, my relationships, my creativity and my passion. It seems like good stuff for the soul.

With any luck it will stick. So, bear with me. I am determined to bring the blog back to life.

May 2013 be filled with wonderful adventure and endless possibilities. Happy New Year!

It's a Trailer Trash Christmas!

I'm likely on Santa's naughty list for my lack of updates. There's much to share, but I've had no time to share it. Here we are nearly mid-December. How did that happen?

In any case, let me tell you about the party we threw this weekend. We invited our friends over for a Trailer Trash Holiday Bash. We asked everyone to dress up and bring a gift for a dirty santa exchange. Reminding them you're not classy if you're not trashy.

They got-R-done!

I've never had more fun planning a party, costumes were great and all in attendance had a blast. Hilarity ensued all night long!

Pabst Blue Ribbon was theme throughout. I know y'all are envious of my glorious tree.

We had plenty of trashy eats and drinks!

Baloney and cheese skewers

Redneck sushi - dill pickles wrapped in cream cheese and deli meat

Sloppy jo's, pigs in a blanket, tater tots, variety of chips and cheese in a can. Dessert was white trash and christmas crack.

Our array of beverages included generic soda, boxed wine, boonsfarm, 40oz, apple moonshine and candy cane vodka. And a pool of beer.

Yes, that's me. Trixie-Lynn. Bubba is around somewhere...

Everyone else kept it classy! We were the envy of all trailer parks.

Happy Holla-Daze!
