Welcome to the new year, y'all! We survived the Mayan Apocalypse, went to our office holiday parties without going totally nuts and witnessed Kathy Griffin trying to get in Anderson Cooper's pants. We're still trying to get that image out of our brains. Regardless, we made it to January, and that's pretty impressive.
The hourly countdown to 2013 has officially begun, which means New Year's Eve preparations are in full swing. We're practicing our photobombing techniques, cranking up the tunes and bejeweling jean shorts, among other things. December 31st is the party of all parties, after all!
It's hard to believe the holidays have come and gone in a matter of weeks, which means all of a sudden our "binge eating" is going to be frowned upon. It also means it's time to think about taking down our festive decorations. This can be a bummer not only because it's like getting rid of all seasonal cheer, but we also haven't the slightest idea how to get rid of our Christmas trees. Luckily, we've discovered a step-by-step instructional guide that walks us through this process in a painless manner.
The holidays might be winding down, but that doesn't mean we can put our feet up and slip into a post-festivities food coma just yet. T-minus three days until New Year's Eve, and you know what that means-- it's time to get your party on!
You know that whole "trust fall" game where you fall backwards into someone's arms and he or she saves you from a bad fall that would bruise your behind for weeks to come? It's an exercise that's supposed to increase...well, trust. Recently though, we've discovered that this so-called game isn't all that fun anymore. In fact, we're beginning to question whether or not this "trust fall" fail thing is becoming a trend.
Attention everyone: we now officially have T-minus eight days until Christmas, and preparation time is running out faster than we can shove holiday cookies in our mouths. We still have to buy last-minute presents, dig out those stockings from the back of our closets and make time for that awful office party.
It's been one hell of a great beer week for us. We've learned which brews are awesome gifts (and apology presents for grabbing the wrong "Christmas hams" at the office party) and which ale we should choose to celebrate the impending end of the world. Now, we're stoked to bring you the so-called "world's best beer."
For most of us here in the good ol' USA, winter means cold, cold weather. While a lot of the time that can really stink, it can also mean the arrival of snow, and we all know that's the best part of the wintry months! Snow angels are possible, intense snowball fights happen and (probably most importantly) snowmen can be made.
The holiday season is easily the greatest time of year, mostly because good moods are abundant and we get to eat tons and tons of cookies. While we're huge fans of Christmastime, it does require a lot of prep. Between the endless cooking and gift shopping, stress can build up pretty quickly, and that brings nothing but bad moods and muddled minds.
Ladies and gentleman, we're back at it again -- it's another round of dogs in holiday costumes. This time, however, there's a huge difference-- we're not responsible in the least bit! See, these dogs did it all to themselves.
