Is it really already December? I can't believe how fast time flies.
I love the holidays! It really is the most wonderful time of the year!
These are a few of my favorite things...
I have been listening to the N'SYNC Christmas album every year since I was in the 7th grade! And Mariah's "All I Want for Christmas" is a classic. Two of my new favorite Christmas CD's are Michael Buble and Dave Barnes. I have been listening to them nonstop!
Every year I watch a different holiday movie every night leading up to Christmas. Home Alone is my all-time favorite...I could literally quote every single line from that movie! I'm sure my sisters are sick of hearing "look what you did you little jerk!" and "when I grow up...I'm living alone!" Lol. And The Santa Clause & Christmas Vacation are definitely classics!
I am obsessed with anything that lights up, so this is the perfect time of year for me! I love driving around looking at people's Christmas lights on their house, and I honestly get a little sad and disappointed in all the houses with no lights. I squeal like a little five-year-old when I drive by a place that is all lit up! Sometimes it scares the crap out of Corey when he's driving, but I can't help it!
There are no pictures that could demonstrate the feelings I associate with the holidays. I love the energy, the warmth, and the goodwill that comes with Christmas. Every one is running around like crazy, buying gifts for everyone but themselves. And I love how excited little kids get waiting for Santa Clause! There's nothing like the holidays.
I love everything else that comes with Christmas, including baking cookies, wrapping presents, and spending time with family. I love candy canes, cinammon-scented candles, secret santa gift exchanges and poinsettias. I've always wanted to go carolling and I still believe in the spirit of Santa!
It truly is the most wonderful time of the year!
Now would probably be a good time to start my shopping!
