Fantasy XMAS List Vs Reality

If I were rich AF, I'd ask for nothing more but a Gucci bag & for my house to be designed ceiling to floor in Versace. Do you hear me, Fantasy Santa?

OK. Put down the bottle, Cringle. I know it's not realistic for me to ask. But I just thought that maybe since you didn't deliver on the Benz & the Louis Vuittons last year, you were gonna cut me a little slack. I mean, I have been good. I drink my morning coffee so I don't hurt anyone & I never forget lipstick so everyone knows I mean business. 

Really though, it's okay. I know you're busy & I'll settle for whatever you decide to throw under the trees. You know I like wine & shoes. I know you'll work with it.

I'm not rich AF, and if Santa decides he's had a few too many to drive the sleigh, I'll understand.

In case you'll be around though, Mr. Claus, here are a few of the basics that would be GREAT.
1. Could you sprinkle a little magic dust to prevent my legs from aching after playing hide and seek all day?
2. Fix traffic. If it wasn't for 2Chainz playing through the aux cord, I'd probably pay more attention for the upcoming meltdown due to a little hooligan kicking the back of my seat. 
3. The floors can vacuum themselves, right?
4. Those people that put reindeer decor on the front of their car, can they be put on the Naughty List? It's tacky. 
5. I'd like a new coffee maker. You know.. For obvious reasons.
6. Bedtime should come sooner. The house is a mess & I need to shower. 
7. I would like my nails to never break. 
8. It could be a little warmer.. I can't feel my hands. 
9. Why are there only 4 registers open at Wal-Mart? There are 1,000 people in here.
10. Dinner delivery, 3 times a week?
I think I'll just leave it short & sweet. Feel free to add your little touches, though. That Gucci bag still is ideal to me. 

I know, I know. Really all I want is for everyone to have a happy, healthy, and drunken Holiday Season this year.

Thanks for reading!

Betty White, My Spirit Animal

Betty effing White. 
94 years young. Beautiful, humble, and will bring you to tears with her humor. 

Her career in Hollywood has been an ongoing thing for seven decades and is still very strong. In 2013, the Guinness World Records recognized Ms. White as having the longest television career for a female entertainer. From the Mary Tyler Moore Show, the Golden Girls, and tons of movies, her spirit has never diminished and she's still young at heart. 

Not only has she had a great screen career, Betty is an animal rights activist, comedian, author, radio host, singer, and the pioneer of television personalities. 

She's an angel, right?

Betty says a little night cocktail keeps her relaxed. Same, girl. 

If you don't already love this lady, you're about to.
“I have no regrets at all. None. I consider myself to be the luckiest old broad on two feet.”
 “I’m a health nut. My favorite food is hot dogs with French fries. And my exercise: I have a two-story house and a very bad memory, so I’m up and down those stairs.”
 “I may be a senior, but so what? I’m still hot.”
"My only claim to fame is that I'm the only woman in the world who hasn't slept with Tiger Woods."
"My muffin hasn't had a cherry since 1939."
"Vodka is kind of a hobby."
Can I just be her? She's great.

DIY Marble Coffee Mugs

Want to customize your plain white coffee mug?
All you need is your favorite color(s) of nail polish, toothpicks, disposable pan, and nail polish remover. Hopefully you won't need the remover, but just in case you aren't happy with your marbled effect & want to try again.
The technique is a little difficult to get down, but it's well worth the patience. 

Using the disposable container makes clean up easier. Fill it with hot water. The nail polish dries very quickly, so the hotter the better.

Next, pour your nail polish closely on to the water, so it will stay on the surface instead of sinking to the bottom. To look more marble-y, (is that a word?), you want to use a toothpick and make swirls with the paint in the water. Do this covering most of the water.

Don't forget once the polish is in the water, you'll have to work a little faster, so it doesn't dry before you get the mug dipped. 

& now the easy part. Simply dip your mug into the paint, bottom half is best, and let it sit for a few second to let the paint grab on to the mug.

Take it out of the water, and set upside down on a paper towel to dry. Once dry, you can go over any spots you don't like with the nail polish remover and that's it! Now you have a unique coffee cup that you made on your own!

Enjoy! Happy Monday :)
