Best Ugly Holiday Sweater EVER!

But…of course…these are not the kind that Grandma would get you for Christmas, so you’ll have to go get ‘em yourself. I’ll take TWO please! 🙂

Why are we so addicted to Hallmark Christmas Movies?

Believe it or not, I asked that very question to my friend yesterday. I mean, really! They’re cheesy and we know it. They have virtually the same plot and we know it. But for some reason, we can’t seem to drag ourselves away from them at this time of year. Amirite? Or am I the only one?

Maybe the bigger question should be what kind of chocolate goes with Hallmark Christmas Movies? Oh I knowwwwwww the answer to that one.

All of it.

Christmas Story Fans!

The Deranged Easter Bunny pajamas are for sale just before the holidays. Stay warm and toasty in this pink nightmare while celebrating good tidings and joy with the family. They may want to have a couple of egg nogs first, tho.

BTW, saw a guy walking around the store wearing his. Guess he couldn’t wait. Haha!

Christmas Prince! Part 2!

I watched the original last year on Netflix. Yes, I know it’s cheesy. Yeah, the acting is kinda bad. Yeah, same plot as every other romantic Christmas movie, but gosh darn it! I LOVE them! It gets me in the Chriss-massy mood!

TOMORROW, November 20th…Christmas Prince, The Royal Wedding! Gotta get my snacks and wash my fuzzy pajamas!

I know I’m not the only one.

Where Angels Hang Around

I had the pleasure of visiting the wonderful St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis this past weekend. I cannot tell you the love you feel when you walk through those halls. It is an experience you will never forget. You are never the same after you visit. It is the place where miracles happen. It is the place, as James Otto sings, where angels hang around. God bless St. Jude. God bless you, the Partners in Hope who keep those miracles happening.

Nope. Not another crappy cellphone moon pic.

This was the brightest star in the morning sky at 5 am. Actually, this is not a star. According to my Night Sky app, this is Venus…and was she ever beautiful. I zoomed in to capture this pic. Grainy, but still awesome!

It’s Never Too Early

So my daughter says, “it’s too early for pumpkin spice lattes in August but it’s not too early for Christmas movies in October?”

And I said to her…”priorities.”
