2013 is upon us! What??

IMG_62992012 is done, bitches.

I think this rather unflattering photo of me sums this year up nicely. I came, I saw, I dealt with some BS. I still kept my smile on. Overall it was a good year. And I got to wear a necklace of my friend Derrick wearing a Peter Pan outfit and riding a purple unicorn.

IMG_6314This December flew by. My husband and I spent an evening decorating sugar cookies with our awesome niece Sierra. She is a funny kid. After a while we all got a bit bored of the task, and took to decorating our faces with royal icing mustaches.

Speaking of stealing, I got to choose my ornament last, so I decided to steal. I stole a bizarre glass “can” of Chicken Chow Mein, which I gloated about drunkenly since my friend Ezra really wanted to keep it.

IMG_6265See how sad he was? Well don’t worry, I promptly dropped that strange gorgeous ornament on the floor and smashed it in my fuzzy, unsteady state.

IMG_6260A week before Christmas we got the whole family together for my mother-in-law’s birthday. Here she is force-feeding my husband some flan. Which he is not a fan of.

Which ended up being a good thing. We had tons of fun just watching lights and eating those cookies we all had worked so hard on.

The next day we went to my inlaws’ house for christmas dinner, and I guess I haven’t uploaded my photos of that yet so the picture tour stops here.

Overall it was a great month, and I’m going to be sad to take all my christmas stuff down this week.

Happy New Year, everyone. I hope your entire 2013 is merry and bright.
