It’s here!

The annual Kardashian Kristmas kard is here, and it’s filled with the kiddos of the klan!

Okay, I’ll stop with the ‘k’ thing.

But really, the card is here, and it’s probably the most adorable and least self-centered card they have put out to date.  From left to right the card features North West, Penelope, Mason, and Reign Disick (Scott and Kourtney’s kids), who Mason is holding.  The only little one missing is Saint West.  And I’m loving the all-black attire.  I approve!

And happy Christmas Eve Eve!

Happy birthday, Kiki!

I can only imagine how many eye rolls I’m getting right now.  This post is dedicated to Ms. Kim Kardashian West’s birthday!  It also happens to be my roommate Rachel’s birthday – happy birthday, Rach!

I can’t tell you how many times people question my fascination for her or the whole Kardashian/Jenner clan, but that’s the thing.  I’m fascinated by them and especially Kim.  Someone who can monetize just about anything they put their name and/or face on and with one of the biggest social media fanbases EVER, major props to you.  Kim Kardashian or not, that’s quite a feat.  Wouldn’t you want to get rich by putting your name on stuff that people want to buy?  I would.  Duh.

I’ll save my ‘Why I’ll Never Be Able to Keep Up With the Kardashians but Love Them Anyway’ post for another day.  This post is to celebrate Kim!

During a recent Q&A on her website, she was asked what she wanted for her 35th birthday.  Her birthday wishes include:  “Expanding the family, having a son, and getting skinny!”  Again, I’m probably getting a decent amount of eye rolls about the ‘getting skinny’ comment, but come on.  At least she didn’t ask for anything materialistic!  Can she liiiiive, people? 🙂

I thought it’d be best to celebrate her by showing you some of my favorite outfits she’s worn over the past few years – primarily in 2015 since I really like her updated style since being married to Kanye, as well as pictures with North West.

The most basic month of them all!

Happy October 1!  Holy smokes.  I really can’t believe it’s already October.  Seriously.

In today’s post, I am going to tell you all why I love this month.  And it has absolutely nothing to do with Halloween.  Well, except for the candy.  But the dressing up part.  Not so much.  Two years ago I dressed up as an Avatar – the full blue leotard, tail and all – but didn’t paint my face blue, and to this day I still get crap for not doing that.  *cough Chad cough*  Sorry we can’t all be Halloween costume rock stars.  See below – @chadgmcbee on Instagram.


Anyways… why I love October:

Let’s get the most basic stuff out of the way.  Tis the season for Ugg boots, pumpkin spice lattes, and fall time – yay!  Oh wait.  I live in Southern California, and it’s still 80 degrees at 7:00pm.  Regardless, when I do decide to stray away from my normal grande iced vanilla coffee (just a coffee because it’s cheaper) with soy milk and extra (because I’m extra) pump of vanilla, I will go for a pumpkin spice latte but probably get it iced.  I get overheated way too easily so can you imagine what a hot drink does?  I’ll spare you.  But in all honesty, this is my favorite season, and I am bummed it’s not the same as it is back east.  Maybe I’ll have to plan a trip back…

Speaking of a trip back, another reason why I love October is because it’s my alma mater’s homecoming.  I flew back for it once after I graduated, and I had just as much fun then as I did when I was still an undergrad.  There’s just something about being back at Westminster College with your best friends, watching a subpar football team, drinking beer, and reminiscing on all of the good times you remember (or don’t.).

Now that we’re on the topic of Westminster, two of my greatest friends from WC are getting married this month!  This reason is an added bonus as to why I love October. 🙂  And I thank them for getting married during Halloween weekend because I don’t have to dress up.  I can’t wait to celebrate Jamie and Ande’s big day!  It will truly be a mixer on steroids, and I can’t wait for it.

SPORTS!  While I couldn’t care less about the sport of baseball, I must give props to my Pittsburgh Pirates for making the playoffs aka #Buctober for the third straight year.  For those of you reading who are asking ‘what the heck is Buctober,’ well let me explain.  Another name for a pirate is a BUCcanneer.  BUCtober.  Get it?  Good.  And it is also the month of hockey season starting!  Although I’m 3,000 miles away, I always make it a point to go see the Pens play both the Kings and the Ducks when they come out here.  Let’s go Pens!

Okay, now to the real reasons of why I love October.  My three all-time favorite celebrities have birthdays this month.

Usher | October 14, 1978  Okay.  This man has been my idol since way before Kim or Drizzy.  Hard to believe, I know, but from Usher’s My Way album back in 1997, I mean I was only six years old, but when I was old enough to listen to his music, it hit me like a ton of bricks. And his dancing!  There really are no words.  Michael Jackson (RIP) was a major influence of his dancing style.  Need I say more.  Have I seen Usher live?  Yes.  Once in 2011 at his tour stop in Pittsburgh and then twice out here in LA at two different tapings of The Voice.  The next step is to take a dance class with him.  If anyone reading this can make that happen, I’d be eternally grateful.

Kim Kardashian | October 21, 1980  I know what you are ALL thinking.  Why do you like her?  She’s a stupid KarTRASHian.  She doesn’t do anything.  She shouldn’t be famous.  Blah blah.  I don’t care what anyone says.  I will always continue to be fascinated by her and her family’s lavish lifestyle.  And if you are able to monetize off of what you are passionate about, which is what she does, then have at it!  Don’t hate the player, hate the game.  But in all honesty.

Drake | October 24, 1986  The man of the dang hour.  Since I 100% know I will be dedicating an entire post to him on his actual birthday, I don’t want to bore you now with random facts and thoughts.  So, I will leave it at this – the man is passionate, talented (can rap and sing – no his singing is not just auto-tune), and easy on the eye.

That is all for today – thank yinz for reading, and happy October!  Oh, and go Steelers!  Tonight they play the Rat Birds, and I sincerely hope we crush them.
