My Deeply Superficial Thoughts

I am Hot Pants McGee, and I have interesting things to say.

All of the Apologies! December 13, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — TeritaBonita @ 12:21 pm


So, this beautiful, yet COLD Monday is being brought to you by the letter “A” for “Apologies”. 

I normally tend to stick to the humorous on this blog, but I have had somewhat of a heavy load of emotional baggage as of late, and figured here was a good a place as any to vent…

I have doled out and dealt with a RIDICULOUS amount of apologies over the past few weeks… tons, I swear.  And for once, it’s not just me.  I don’t know what it is about the holidays that makes us all do and say so many hurtful and regretful things!  Is it the cold?  The overconsumption of holiday cocktails? Just generally merriment turned malice in a split second?  I have yelled at friends, been yelled at, confused, annoyed, spiteful, and generally tragic for almost three weeks now… it seems nearly every morning, there is an apology – via text, via IM, via phone call and all bringing with them that empty feeling of anxious apprehension… each person wondering if this has been the final dramatic blow to a relationship that a mere “I’m Sorry” won’t fix.  I’ve cried and been a shoulder to cry on, and all of these scenarios have generally been wine-fueled and lead to the same destination – The Morning Apology…  Hunter S. Thompson meets Norman Rockwell meets Coppola Wineries.  

With that being said, I am turning over a new leaf on this beautiful, cold and sunny morning… this is a season for happiness and fellowship and friends and family.  I will not dwell on the nonsense and will focus on the awesomeness that is the holiday season.   With a Pinot Noir in my hand, of course.

At least my baggage is LV,

Terita B.

I have had great stuff in my ears all day, but decided this would be today’s song:

I heart me some Andrew Bird.  The man is a talent to be reckoned with.

Ready to get some Friday Pinot Noir in mah face,

So, one of my fave people on Earth (and also my neighbor)celebrated her birthday this past Monday. We decided to give her a super fun party in the courtyard of our ecclectic little apartment complex. The decor turned out great, and made for a lovely evening of friends, old and new, and shenanigans.

Table set up, complete with wine and cheese and grapes and roses and Lone Star. There was even a signature birthday cocktail with a base of grapefruit juice and vodka. Super yum!

Caroline even made an appearance! Yay!

LB was extra saucy in her super cute birthday outfit!!

We listened to a lot of funk and good times were had by all.

Sister Love to the B-Day Gal,

So, Thanksgiving at Mom and Matt’s was AMAZING, as usual. We had enough yummy Southern goodness to feed a small country, and a good time was had by all!

Thanksgiving Day Breakfast! Yum! Pigs in a Blanket by the dozen!

Mom having her coffee (a handmade mocha, whipped up by yours truly on Mom’s new espresso machine) whilst cooking up some goodness!

Matt sampling the wares…

This is what 8 lbs of potatoes looks like. All peeled by me. I couldn’t feel my index finger for a day.

Hoping everyone enjoyed fam and friends and food,
