The First Post of 2015

I think it's funny because the last time I posted (on November 23rd, mind you) I made a reference to wanting to blog more habitually........and I haven't blogged since. Oopsie. I feel like that's been my life for the latter of 2014 - the blogging bug came and went often. So for now, I have the blogging bug and definitely want to have the blogging bug more often in 2015. But that's not an official "resolution" so don't put that on the record, cause I might fail - I can't really seem to control how often I get bugs. ...blogging bugs, not like bed bugs or tapeworms or anything like that. But anyway, let's catch up shall we?

End of November brought Thanksgiving, obvi...
 ...and Thanksgiving brought wine so, yes please.

It also brought Brianna to town from Tucson, which then brought Brianna and Kailey and I together for some quality BFF time.
 We did lunch at the Perch and watched the ASU/UofA game while drinking mimosas. ...Cause how else do you watch day-time football if not with Mimosas?

Gunther's birthday is also in November and you know what that means....doggie birthday party! This is how Gunther felt about his party hat...
 ...but then I was like, "Cheer up Gunther! It's your birthday! Today is all about YOU!" and then he was like, oh okay you're right!...

Then December came and we did all sorts of December things.
I decorated:
We baked:
 We got a Christmas tree:
 ...and we ran into my parents at the Christmas tree lot and I just so happen to be wearing  the same as my dad. So that was awesome. And I'm not even being sarcastic, that's  awesome.
 And then we decorated it:
We took Christmas pictures and I became obsessed with them:
Photo cred to the fantastic Amaes Photography
I wanted to put the above picture on our Christmas card but Gunther's backside and ahem, equipment, are like right there kind of in your to try and make it a little better I blurred out his butt hole. So then I asked Nate if I should use this picture for the card and the first thing he said was, "Where's Gunther's asshole?? Did you blur out his asshole?? Why would you do that?? I definitely wouldn't use it now cause he doesn't look right without an asshole." So you know, that's how that went down.

I saw Kailey and Brianna a couple more times before Brianna left us to go live in Montana for a year (rude):
I saw my dear friend Tyah and celebrated her graduating with her PhD before they left to go live back in South Carolina (rude):
I like this picture because it's blurry and we're all making weird faces and doing weird things, because that is the essence of "the quad" as I've dubbed us. It's just kind of a mess when the four of us get together but hey, we've been quadin' it up since high school so YOLO! people still say that?

We also spent some time out in the desert shooting guns which, isn't necessarily "December"-ish per say, but hey, shooting guns is for all seasons.

By then it was Christmas time so that's what we did, we Christmas'd. We Christmas'd with Nate's family:
...and we Christmas'd with my family. We even had extra family to Christmas with this year as my Aunt and Uncle and cousin and his wife all came in from out of town and it was all sorts of fun just like when we were kids before they moved away from Arizona (rude).
We then prolonged the Christmas spirit and went ice skating with said family in from out of town at the Scottsdale Princess Resort. Each year they do "Christmas at the Princess" and boy is it Christmas-y.

So then after Christmas I got to spend some Christmas money on a brand new shiny pair of roller blades. That's right, rollerblades. I'm bringin' 'em back, guys.

And I daresay that about catches us all up. Sorry, that was a really long post with not a lot of explanation and I'll probably kick myself later on when I'm 80 and rereading my blog to try and remember what I did between November 2014 and January 2015 and there's not a lot of detail, but I just really didn't want to have to break this up into two different posts. Can't win 'em all I suppose.

Happy New Year friends!
