Enjoying the Holidays

    Long time no write…..well that’s what happens when it’s the Holidays. I’m soo busy! :) if I haven’t told you yet; I’m a total Holiday nerd. I get into every Holiday you can imagine, but Christmas is #1 on my list. I love to decorate and make you feel like your walking into Santa’s village. I love going out and seeing all the lights and holiday decorations. I thrive on all the treats and drinks that go with the season. Seeing how happy people are from Thanksgiving to New Years. Its the best energy! Going to parties and seeing family. Oh, it’s the greatest time of the year. Us Bellas make the most of the season, we get sooo into it. I forget about sleep and embrace every second.

      Our December went fast! We started as you know in Afghanistan. When we got back we enjoyed a trip to the wine country; Beautiful Sonoma County! The weather was perfect, the wine was delicious, and Tony Bennett was amazing! Couldn’t ask for a better trip. From the wine country we headed into Colache Country. My legal last name is Garcia-Colace, the colace is my Italian side and we call ourselves The Colaches. We make it fun ;) we headed to Brawley, CA where a majority of our family live and we had our 19th annual Drummer Boy dinner. The most special dinner to me. It’s a dinner in memory of my grandfather, Pop-Pop. He was the most amazing, beautiful soul, happiest person you could ever meet. Since we were little kids he would take us around his house in a march to the drummer boy and point out all of his nativity sets. It was a precious moment for me. That moment continues ever year. I marched to the drummer boy, enjoyed homemade Italian meat balls then headed to NYC to see the tree at Rockefeller Center, meet my girls at the Plaza for Christmas cocktails then enjoyed a fabulous jazz show by Steve Tyrell. Hello Chi Town! I met Nikki and Mama Bella in Chicago to top off our Christmas. We spoiled ourselves with massages, great dinners, a little  shopping and of coarse the Nutcracker. After tv in Chicago we headed on our way to the Holiday Tour….enjoyed the garden, the burg, DC and Hartford to only end this magnificent month and year in good ole’ New York City. I threw the classic black dress, diamond necklace and fur jacket on, then celebrated the new year with friends, Nikki and a great bottle of Champagne. Did I have a New Year’s Kiss……….NO!! Can you believe it! Maybe I’ll have better luck next year!

I hope you all had a great Holiday season the way I enjoyed mine and I hope the New Year is good to you. Remember as Mama Bella would say, "No Regrets!" Live it up, you only have one life to live :)

If your wondering what my new year’s resolutions are…. well it’s a long list….

        1. Get Healthier….eat better and work out more (typical I know, but I truly enjoyed the holidays if you know what I mean lol)

        2. Paint more…I’ve been so busy that I just don’t do it, I’ll be better this year.

        3. Not to always rush, take more breaths, enjoy more moments and not let life go by so quickly.

        4. Pray more. I wasn’t as good as I wanted to be this year.

         5. Lastly, Save! Lol I’m good, but I could use a plan ;)

Send in your New Year’s Resolution so I can check out yours!

Also Nikki says for number 6. I need to write: We will be better at fan questions!! Yes we will!

Happy New Year to our Bella Army,

Brie

    Yet again, another fantastic blog, Brie! I definitely enjoyed the holidays this year. I think it was one of the best I’ve had in my 20 years of life. The year went by so fast though, but I made a lot of great memories that I will keep with me forever. One of those memories is meeting you guys 5 times. Yes, 5 times and hopefully more to come in 2012. Another is traveling to New York for SSeries. Some of my New Year’s Resolutions were 1. Eat healthier 2. Stay active (exercise more) 3. Be better at saving my money 4. Stay strong and positive. Glad to hear you enjoyed your holidays. 2012 is the year of The Bellas!

    I’m the same way with holidays. I love the time spent with family, and I’m very sentimental and traditional, so the holidays are a must! I also love to decorate and to travel around and see everyone else’s decorations. The RiverWalk in San Antonio, Tx was beautifully decorated this year. As was the city park in Fredericksburg, TX. Loved it.

    Glad you had a lot of fun. As for my Resolutions, these are mine:

    1.) Same as yours, get fit and eat healthy.
    2.) Read the entire Bible in a year.
    3.) Meet you and Nikki (again, and not to be so shy around you. :-/)
    4.) Enjoy the little things.
    5.) Finish this semester with all A’s in college.

    Good luck on your Resolutions. :-)

    Awuh! Brie your blog was so cute! Your family traditions seem so amazing! Me & my family have a few traditions which really make me love the holidays! Christmas is also my #1 favorite too! It’s something about the decorations, the spirit and the feel of the Christmas all around, it’s just so special! I also lost my Grandad and we always have a glass of champagne in the morning, put his favorite Christmas movie on. We always used to start Christmas off like that and also each open a small pressie on Christmas Eve! We love to keep up traditions like you! :) Your New Years Resolutions are awesome! I actually have some resolutions! 1, Keep healthy and do more exercise. 2, Save more money, especially incase you have a signing! Already saved up loads of money and put in it a box especially for the cost of meeting you & Nikki! 3, Be a nicer person and try not to let people get to me as much, you & Nikki have helped me so much, you’re drive of passion and how you stand up to people inspired me! I’m a much stronger person now thanks to you two girlies! 4, Give more stuff to charity! 5, Make the most of life, i’ve realized you never know when it’ll all be over so this year i’m gonna make the most of everything i see, do and plan on doing (:

    I hope you keep up with your Fan Questions, i miss them so much! But you two are very busy and us #BellaArmy understand! (:

    Love you Brizee!
    - P.S thankyou for making this Christmas the best ever! When i saw your DM i actually burst out crying, it was the best Christmas present i could ever of asked for! I love you & Nikki so much :’) Love You! <33

    Brie, I really appreciate how genuine you and your blogs are. I know it means a lot to us fans for you to write blogs like this and give us a little bit of an insider’s perspective. I’m jealous (in a good way ;) ) of all your traveling! It must be so amazing to be able to go to city to city just in a couple of days! What a life. I’m sure you both have so many amazing experiences that you will hold with you forever. I’m thrilled your holidays were wonderful. You two deserve it; you both work really hard! It was so special to hear about the tradition you all have for your grandfather. I’m sure he is smiling down on you both all the time, reveling in all the successes you have achieved.
    As for my holidays, I’m Jewish so as Adam Sandler says “put on your yamulkah because it’s Chanukah.” ;) Actually, my family does celebrate Christmas as well because it’s one of those universal things that is so special to everyone. The lights, the gifts, the overall meaning…Christmas is magical. To you and your family, I wish you a wonderful new year.

    My resolutions:
    1) As with everyone…get healthier, exercise. Get MOTIVATED!
    2) Save money, but also make more money! ;)
    3) Be nice to everyone I encounter, even if they’re not nice to me. Kill ‘em with kindness!
    4) Go to more shows and represent the Bellas! ;) ;)

    Hello Brie, you’ve made another awesome blog! This blog made me this night just more beautiful then it already is. It’s really neat that you’re making these blogs for us, your fans, it’s like getting another New Year’s present! For me, holidays mean alot, aswell as for you. It’s a time when my whole family spends some time together.

    I’m happy to hear that you have enjoyed your Holiday season! My New Year’s resolutions are:
    1 – Eat healthy and continue training football and going to the gym
    2 – Study more for school, since I barely do that
    3 – Meet Nikki and you some day, hopefully
    4 – Not get pissed because of some non-important things
    5 – Save money longer then I usually do

    I hope that your New Year’s resolutions become true, and that Nikki and you enjoy this year even more then the last one!

  9. Jame$ January 3, 2012 at 10:17 pm #

    I am glad to hear you had an amazing holiday. Food, Family, Music. Does not get much better than that. Yeah, I was stuck kissing my hand on New Years too. xD I am not one for New Years Resolutions but if I had to have one I would say it would be to kick butt at my job so I can compile enough money to come meet you and the rest of the hard working WWE superstars some day in the near future.

    Much love!
    -James

  12. Max MF January 4, 2012 at 12:26 am #

    Brie, you are just incredible! I love reading your blog. I had a good Christmas, I got a beautiful 8 x 10 picture of you and Nikki, you look stunning… I display it on my TV unit, in a nice black photoframe. I just want you to know that I was over the moon with the DM you sent me saying Merry Christmas! The best present ever! (@BellaTwins128) that really topped off my Christmas and made me smile :) I am glad that you and Nikki had a nice Christmas and a new years night, you girls desrve it, I would have gave you a New Years kiss x. At home now my family always say that you and Nikki are my girlfriends, I always reply with “I really do wish” :D Just like you Brie, I got Into the holiday spirit and becuase of that reason I have 2 resolutions…

    1) Start doing some Stratusphere living and taking some advice off of Trish herself, maybe try some yoga to keep fit!!

    2) I wish I could meet you this year, that would be breathtaking… I am going to try and make that happen xx (Its hard when im only 15 and I live in the UK)

    Seeing you in action once again on Raw was sweet, I cant wait to see more Twin Magic moments from you in 2012… This year will be our year, I know it! Keep on making me and the rest of The BellaArmy proud to have such beautiful, butt kicking and most of all Magic heroes and inspirations in our lives. We love you and most inportant to me I love, care, amire and will always support you. – MaxMF Love Besos! xoxo

    P.S Please do more Q & A videos, I pour my heart out with questions everytime :) I would probably scream like a girl if you answered one of my questions and sent me some Bella Love ;)

  13. Danielle January 4, 2012 at 1:14 am #

    Awwuh, I always adore your blogs, and this once was real sweet. (; I really love that last picture – where you, Nikki, your mother, and Santa was there. ♥ So cute!
    Christmas is also the #1 for me. It’s always wonderful seeing the church packed. (“: Anyways, I love your Christmas spirit, or should I say BellaXmas spirit. ^^ teehee. C: The way you love the flashing lights & enjoy your time makes me feel so happy. <3
    Your mother's quote "No Regrets!" Live it up, you only have one life to live'' – aawuh, that's very real & true. It must be amazing to have such an inspiring mother, huh? (":
    Your resolutions, hope you'll be successful! Giving much love and support throughout the time. C: ♥ Hope you do the same, cause my resolutions are kind of the same. #1, I wanna spend more time with family & friends. #2, make every second of my life special. Life's temporary and I wanna live the best of it. ♥ #3, show more of my faith & love to God (pray, read the bible more) #4, complete what I've started. For some of my paintings and art, I've never really finished cause sometimes I get impatient. :p And finally, be more generous & donate money to charity. I've donated alot of my money for the floods in Philippines, so I'm really on a good start. (: Wish me luck!

    About your fan questions, I've been quite curious about that. NOT that I'm rushing you, cause I know you're very busy & hardworking. Anyways, can't wait to see them! You're always looking so beautiful in them. :" D ♥

    Love you always. <3
    Danielle.
    and oh, sad to hear about you not getting a New Years kiss! D:

  14. Danielle January 4, 2012 at 1:18 am #

    And I’d also like thank you for giving me one the best Christmas’ ever! That DM you sent was so sweet! I even made something about it; http://twitpic.com/7yorc1. Hope you tell me what you think. C; My truest inspirations always make my day/dream/wish/everything. ♥

    Anyways, I love you & Nikki for freaking much, Besos! Xxoo ♥

    Hello from an Italian fan, I’m happy to read your blog and see your happiness. The Holiday season in Italy ends in theese day, and due to job I haven’t much free time, but anyway I’m happy because I’ve spent the few free days with family and friends. I’m happy to know that both you have spent a great Christmas and New Year Eve and like me good time with your family and friends, so I can say that my wishes sent to you on Twitter have worked good. I’ve really appreciate what have you done in Afghanistan, at West Point and at Tribute to the Troops because I’m a boy so I can say you two are very beautiful girls, but following on Twitter and here I’ve been the possibility to say that both you have a great hart and soul, and that’s the most important thing. I’m happy to see that 2012 on Raw has started with a victory (I was awake at 3 am for the Live even if the clock has called me at 8 am for go to work) and I hope that is a symbol for personal life.
    For my new year’s resolutions I don’t know, principally I’m agree with yours…
    I don’t use much Twitter (not trending in Italy) but I’ll continue to follow you.
    Love you Brie & Nikki
    Simone
