Christmas Traditions Link Up!

button
We don’t really have Christmas traditions in our family…we just kinda wing it as we go.

When I first had kids I had these grand plans of all the wonderful traditions we would carry out every season….like decorate cookies for Santa in our newly unwrapped matching pajamas on Christmas Eve.

Then life happened & I’m like…oh just forget it. The first few years we were always going to a family gathering on Christmas Eve and by the time we got home…Daynie was asleep!

Christmas-Light-ecard

Seriously..we are always running everywhere all the time around the holidays it doesn’t feel like we have time to just enjoy it….or even just enjoy it with our little family.

& especially on Christmas Eve. We usually either have a Christmas to go to or host it at our house…by the time everything is cleaned up we are rushing the kids to bed because we know we (and by we I totally mean ME) have hours of putting shit together & setting up.

Where is that fat man anyway & why am I always stuck doing his job?

Why does this remind me of Danny? It's prob the one sock half off.

I guess you can say I’m a little over the Christmas thing.  It sucks me dry physically, mentally, & financially.

Danny’s family does have one MAJOR Christmas tradition though…BINGO.

Yes…his WHOLE family gets together…and brings a buttload of food & a buttload of Bingo prizes & then they stuff their faces and get their Bingo on. And Bingo in his family is quite the serious deal….for about 20 min.

Butterfinger Jingles.

Reese’s Bells.

Why do they have to be sooooo flippin good?

I prob shouldn’t have included them in my office deco…they call my name ALL DAMN DAY. And by call my name..it’s not…Nina eat me.

IT’S….NINA DON’T EAT ME! You’ve already ate all my friends! (as I devour it)

She might be a little bored 😉

It’s keeping her busy & keeping me from eating them all…so win/win.

Tuesday night she was stung by we are guessing a yellow jacket. She said it was “really long & really yellow”  Well..Wednesday the redness & swelling overtook half her thigh & by yesterday it covered her whole thigh. It’s also hot & hard.

So to the doc she went today.

Ugh! I feel like I live at the dr’s office. Any dr. mine, theirs, the dentist, eye dr, ortho… Doesn’t matter I’m always at one of them.

On the bright side..she did allow me to MAKE her sport this cute holiday attire PLUS a bow today! Oh happy day!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE big layered bows! Daynie has over 100 made to match bows & she won’t hardly wear them anymore 🙁  I’m contemplating having another baby just to get more bow use.

One good thing about doctor days though:

Tacos from my fav place evaaaa.

I had to miss G man’s field trip today b/c of Daynie’s dr appt… booooo. But I’m thankful for good friends that are picture whores like me!

FIVE…

Check out my new site..www.FrugaLatte.com….it’s a total knock off of the crazy white  trash bitch that wronged me’s site. I let her do all the work & then just copy it. Ya know..just using her own game against her to try and make back some of the money she stole from me. I don’t copy everything b/c a lot of her stuff is pretty lame. So I add cooler better stuff to mine. If you noticed Gnomie Not My Homie in the ad and on the website…it’s bc he is the spokesman for my new site. He dumped that B  & decided to get on board with the cool crowd when he found out all the stuff that cold hearted crazy bitch did. I know I said before that he was dead…what I meant was… dead to me but I’ve since had a change in heart b/c  apparently he is #aliveandwell.

yes, yes he is.

Yes. Yes he is. #andmakingme$$$

I know this might all seem a little cray..but hey…sometimes we all need a little cray in our life! An eye for an eye. Bible style.

Dirty Girl Mud Run!

Back on October 4th…Muh Girls & I  hit the road with Hippie Santa and headed to Dallas for the Dirty Girl Mud Run!

 

 

Hollie was super excited about the bridges in tha big ol city!

We got to our hotel Friday night & promptly got busy on taking our IG selfies!

1440 1441 1443 1444 1445 1446

We finally got the perfect one! You’re obvi welcome IG.

Then we headed to get some yummayyy Tex Mex & Margaritas! (both staples for the #RoadtrippityTribe)

Great girl talk & great company!

We even found some sweet deco for Uncle Babe.

We grabbed our To Go cups & took our party on the road!

Errr..or to the back parking lot for some drunk cartwheel fun.

Luckily Walmart was also in the same parking lot & we were able to hang there for a bit to let our buzz fizzle do some shopping.

1479

Hippie Santa was a great DD!

Even though he did drive sooo slow he caused this!

We headed back to the hotel to rest up for the big race the next day!

1477

1478

1482

 

Or something like that.

There may or may not have been a lot of drinking, social media, & twerking involved.

Unfortunately, even though Hollie has exceptionally AMAZING twerking skills…she’s kinda not as awesome as me & wouldn’t let me share. BOOOO. That’s ok ya’ll…I’ll totally make you a spoof video and show you how it went down.

The next morning we were up and out the door to make the first time slot at the race!

I can’t EVEN explain to you HOW MUCH FREAKIN FUN the Dirty Girl Mud Run was & really the whole weekend! We had THE BEST TIME!

There are wayyyy too many photos from the race…so I made you an awesome vid to enjoy! Sorry there isn’t any fun upbeat music…I suck at making a decision on something cool. There is sound on the video parts so turn up the volume when your watch it. Pump up the jam Pump It up. Oh wait…no music…anyone have any fun song ideas I can add to this video after watching it LET ME KNOW & I will add them…and you will get mega street cred cool Nina points.

We walked a lot of it…but we also ran a lot of it. We completed every single obstacle like a badass! I can’t wait to do it again!

And what’s next for this #RoadTrippityTribe ???  Just more pure awesomeness.

 

Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for some InstaGreatness to brighten your day! You can search #Roadtrippity or #RoadtrippityTribe for my previous road trippin good times.

Thanks for the traffic…

The thing about people…they love drama and they love scandal…so to say you are playing right into my hands is an understatement. 😉

I’ve always loved that photo of me 🙂  Thanks for picking muh fav!

I was just sitting here with an old “friend” and we were discussing how you are a lying, stealing, piece of white trash shit. We decided to use your own game against you & will be profiting from it.  With my awesome new face/spokesman of this venture…. I should have no problem making back the money you STOLE from me.

Peace out bitch. And by bitch…I most definitely mean you Janie.

ps. You are but a mere form of entertainment for me now. I shall sit back and enjoy the show. Let your Carly shine!

 

 

Best Day Everrr…Worst Day Everrr…

It’s a sad sad day here at The Nina Show.

This morning the unthinkable happened.

And my heart is heavy.

I was rockin to muh jams on the way to the Post Office to check the three PO boxes just like everrr other day…and I hit the brakes to stop. Out of nowhere the front seat flew my stupid rude ass laptop and into the floorboard….

RIGHT. INTO….

Hippie Santa.

🙁

(insert super ugly Farrah cry face here)

The tragic accident severed his arm.

(insert super ugly KIM Kardashian cry face here)

And it was kinda his important arm.

uh yeah he's just chillin on top of muh Bible. uh...you couldn't protect him GOD? WTH?!

uh yeah he’s just chillin on top of muh Bible. uh…you couldn’t protect him GOD? WTH?!

 

Worst. Day. Everrrr.

I just really don’t know where to go from here.

Hippie Santa was muh BFF.

We had some good times together.

Road trips…. (aka #roadtrippity)

Late night Wally World trips…

He’s with me through the everrday rigamaroo. (yes that’s totally a word)

He’s right by my side on my binging days.

He’s my party partner.

Oh yeah.. Gnomie My Homie DiED.  Forgot to tell ya’ll.  It’s all good though…it was for the best. Blessing in disguise actually.  I think he died of being a lying, stealing, pathetic, piece of white trash shit..but not for sure. You should ask Janie.

(I know Gnomie looks sweet…but don’t let his face fool ya..wolf in sheep’s clothing.)

 

 

I’ve got pictchas of EVERRRbody I know peacin out with Hippie Santa.

He’s a pal like no other..Seriously the most awesome dude eva.

And now this…

photo (4)

 

How he’s still cheesin & peacin under the circtumstances…I just dunno. He’s got the best attitude. We could all learn something from him.

Right now we are meeting with surgeons and exploring our options.

So if anyone has any ideas of how we can help Hippie Santa make it through this heartbreaking time…let me know.

I’m thinking of organizing some kind of event. He needs a color, a slogan, and an emblem. I was thinking about Hope 4 Hippie Santa. 

Hope 4 Hippie Santa

in other news

Even though my morning started off rather cataclysmic…it also started out uber awesome!

What?! What?!

I mean really...how can you not be in love with her after reading that about me.
