* Holiday Celebration * Name your favorite Christmas movie!


There are so many great Christmas movies out there that it’s often hard to pick just one favorite. For me, the one that my family watches over and over again and never fails to laugh hysterically at time and time again is CHRISTMAS VACATION. We kick off the Christmas season by watching it on Thanksgiving night, and often watch it at least another time or two before the holiday’s are over. Yes, we are some of “those” people who go around quoting lines as they’re happening. We regret nothing! ๐Ÿ˜€ย 



Like Christmas music though, I’m a big fan of movies too, so I watch them quite a bit each year. Here are a few of my other favorites …



I could go on and on! ๐Ÿ™‚ What are some of your favorites?


* Holiday Celebration * Let’s go caroling!

Who else is a sucker for Christmas music? I can listen to it over and over again this time of year and never get tired of it. I like the classics, the new twists that are always being released even on the classic songs, and some artists put out those original songs that just melt your heart with all the feels, am I right? So let’s share some of our favs!

Classic wise, you have to love Bing Crosby and White Christmas.


Newer renditions … here is a really great version of Silent Night by Kelly Clarkson, Trisha Yearwood and Reba McEntire.


And my personal weakness … tearjerker holiday songs like It Won’t Seem Like Christmas by Loretta Lynn.


What are some of your favorite holiday songs? Have an album you could listen to over and over? An artist you particularly like their version of a song by? Share!

Well, I hate to break the news to you, but … I didn’t win my millions last night. ย *sigh*

The good news is … neither did anyone else! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll have to try again on Saturday. ย The Powerball jackpot was up to over $500 Million for last nights drawing … and they’re saying it’ll be over $600 Million by Saturday. ย I don’t play normally, but when it gets into the hundreds of millions of dollars, I decide to roll the dice … just in case!




Wishing you and yours a happy, healthy and prosperous new year!

I’ve vowed to blog more this year …ย not just Reviews, but life in general, likeย something that makes me laugh or something I want to vent about. ย You know … all the good stuff! ๐Ÿ˜›

I feel like 2015 really got away from me. ย I was sick in the Spring, then recovering from surgery through Summer and before I knew it, Fall was here and we all know that once those evenings start cooling down, Christmas is going to be here before we know it. ย And boy was it!

Today as 2016 kicks off, I am happy to start fresh and look forward to enjoying everything life has to offer! ย I hope you’ll have lots of happiness coming your way this year!

DAY 14

Day 14 ย – ย 100 Days of Happiness

Today’s happiness was watching and hearing the rain through the window. It’s been way too dry here in Maryland for the last couple of months or more, so the rain was much appreciated. Grass and trees have been turning brown way before it was time for them to be since fall hasn’t even hit yet. #100DaysofHappiness
