I Hate Odd Numbers, but Happy 2013!

Hey there and Happy New Year! Yes, I’m aware that we’re 10 days in to January already, but I operate on my own schedule.  Did everyone have a lovely holiday season? I spent 8 days in PA at my mom and her fiance’s house, and it was a busy week full of family time.  I came home to VA just in time for New Year’s Eve, and then promptly came down with a plague that has kept me down and out for the past week. I’m not going to do a full holiday recap post, because let’s be honest no one really gives a shit, but I will share some of my favorite pics. No resolution post either, because I already have enough to focus on without adding something mundane like “stop saying fuck so much” to the agenda.  Also as you’ve probably noticed, posting here is super sporadic so you’ll have much more luck keeping up with me on Twitter and Instagram (kelster718 on both).

A lot of the East Coast was lucky enough to experience a white Christmas this year, and we were some of them! Not only did we get snow on Christmas Eve, but an even bigger snow storm the Saturday after Christmas. Since I am still six years-old at heart, I was incredibly excited by all of this and ran around in it like an idiot.


my sister and I on Christmas Eve in the snow. It ruined my hair, but whatevs.

We spent Christmas Eve meeting my mom’s fiance’s extended family and participating in a tradition Italian seven fishes dinner. I don’t eat fish, so I mostly drank champagne and played with my future step nephew. Not gonna lie, the amount of time I spent over Christmas with cute babies did nothing to quell my baby fevah. Gimme.


what you can’t see is his chubby little (candy cane covered) fingers tangled in the back of my hair.

“here aunt kelly, it’s yummy!”

We spent Christmas day with my mom’s family, played an epic game of Monopoly, and drank a lot. Epic because I lost in what might be the quickest amount of time in Monopoly history. My sister said it’s because I play Monopoly like I live my life, buying all the properties and not paying attention to money. Haha oh well, it is what it is.

Fam on Christmas. (Side note, doesn’t my mom’s fiance look like Jack Nicholson?)

Let’s see, what else what else. My sister and I got shit faced in the hot tub on Christmas night, she head butted me and gave me a fat lip, I was super hungover on the 26th. I got to have dinner with two of my buddies from my old job, got my hair did, and had an amazeballs family day in the city. We saw Jekyll and Hyde at the Forrest Theater, and then dinner at The Water Works, which has some of my favorite views of the city.

more snow!

Mom and her girls

Like I said, I made it back to VA just in time to ring in 2013 with some of my closest friends and it was wonderful. We spent it at one of our regular weekend bars, just slightly more dressed up than usual, and I stayed out later than I had in quite some time.

Yes, I wore the same dress. It was expensive. And fabulous.

In OTHER news, my sister and I just booked an amazinggggg trip for April. The two of us are heading to Ireland for 7 days and I am so flipping excited. I can’t think of anyone I’d rather spend a week exploring our homeland with. April is going to be a crazy month, because the day after we return from Ireland my mom is tying the knot! I expect to be completely jet lagged and barely functioning, but I’m so excited for her and Gabe to finally get married. Now… I just need to find a date.

Anywhoodle, I’m off to go slather Neosporin all over the inside of my nose so I can continue to blow it every 5 minutes without crying. Happy Thursday!
