With Christmas only a few short weeks away, our holiday excitement seems to build every single day. Honestly, how can you not be totally stoked over the idea of presents and Santa and tons of hot chocolate with marshmallows? It's impossible. That's why we love to express this crazy anticipation in our favorite way-- through festive clothing. We're huge fans of giving our cat's reindeer antlers and making our pups wear Santa hats, but what does that mean for us?
Santa Claus rules. Unless his beard gets stuck mid-mall stunt, then his cool status gets a little iffy. But otherwise, good ol' St. Nick is really awesome. Why? For starters, he has reindeer as pets, gives out presents for a living and gets thousands of free homemade cookies on Christmas Eve. Basically, the guy's livin' the life. It's no wonder he's survived to be like, hundreds of years old!
Not that we're counting or anything, but Christmas is only 27 days and a few hours away, which means it's time to get into the spirit ASAP. Now, this doesn't mean going 'Gangnam Style' crazy with house lights. You also don't have to go buying the 12 days of Christmas to prep for the holidays either, although that would be super awesome. It can require very little to no effort to feel all tingly with Christmas excitement, like making obnoxiously long gift lists or dressing up our cats like reindeer. Come on, you know we can't get through the holidays without embarrassing our pets.
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it's time to get into full-on turkey mode. After all, it's never too early to loosen up the ol' belt buckle to ready ourselves for Thursday's feasting. While we're getting totally hyped about eating tons of stuffing and gravy and pumpkin pie, we still feel like the holiday prep could use a little extra oomph, and that's where Turkey Day music comes in.
Veteran's Day is one of the greatest American holiday, because we get to celebrate those who have and are still serving our country. It's one of the greatest sacrifices; these men and women are leaving their loved ones to risk their lives for us. For that, we give them a sincere thank you.
After months and months of being bombarded with political buzz, Election Day is finally upon us. It's a little exhausting to deal with Bayonets and amusing autotuning and everything in between, so it's about darn time society gets back to business and resumes normality.
A few weeks back, a tiny baby burrito kicked off our craving for kids dressed in food costumes. (Not for actual baby. We're not zombies or anything.) It’s such a simple concept, yet it yields such hilarious results. Talk about Halloween genius at its finest. Luckily, we can continue laughing and aww-ing over miniature tasty attire, thanks to the ‘Babies in Food Costumes’ Tumblr.
America’s obsession with ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ is one of those weird things we just have to accept and (willingly) join in witnessing the ridiculous hilarity. Luckily for us, Alana and Mama June Thompson have been on a slew of news-related shows recently, and in true sassy fashion, the six-year-old has always brought crazy antics along with her.
There's one thing we know for sure about little kids-- they can make practically anything seem adorable. Scrunched-up, twisted sour faces? Check. A boppin' on a bed rendition of Michael Jackson's 'Thriller'? You betcha! Although we're a little dumbfounded as to how this "everything is ridiculously adorable" thing actually happens, we can't help but be sucked into the cuteness every darn time. This is especially true when it comes to Halloween.
A few weeks ago, we discovered some of the most hilarious ‘Pitch Perfect’ memes and GIFs, starring our comedy crush, Rebel Wilson. We didn’t think it was possible for our love of the actress to get any bigger, but incredibly enough, it has skyrocketed.
