Grandmothers Don’t Mind Nudity On Special Occasions.

Looking for a dress for Christmas Eve is always fun. By the way, my idea of fun is BodyPump, kickboxing, and running for 11 miles at a stretch. Obviously, my fun must involve torture and special wardrobe-and sweat. I have done MOST of this online, so if I don’t find something today-I’m going to have to attend in the nude. I can’t wait to see my MawMaw’s face. It’s going to be just precious. Bless her heart.

Whilst looking, I think I found the PERFECT dress. It really screams “holidays with the family”, what do you think?

Nothing says “Let’s Celebrate the birth of our savior and the love of our family” quite like a vagina high, cleavage low, dress. It’s sold out. Sorry, MawMaw. It’s all T&A for you.

Maybe I’ll just get some Christmas lights and pin them to my red sweater. I am going to look.awesome.

I know what I’m bringing, though!!! SHORTBREAD.

I don’t know about you, but I always got peeved when Lorna Doone cookies were all that was left in the holiday pile. They just weren’t good enough. That was until I had REAL shortbread. Delicious and crumbly with more butter than Paula Deen’s hands after eating breakfast.
