CHRISTMAS TAG

  1. What is your favourite Christmas film?
    • THE HOLIDAY…Elf, and The Grinch too, of course!

  2. What is your favourite Christmas song?
    • Merry Christmas Everyone – Shakin’ Stevens
    • Driving Home for Christmas – Jonathan Roy
    • ANYTHING from Celine Dion’s Christmas album celine.jpg
  3. Where do you spend your holiday?
    • At home, by the fire and everybody I love
  4. Have you ever had a white Christmas?
    • I live in Canada, so it’s very rare to not have a white Christmas (even though this year might not be!)
  5. Where would be your dream place to visit for Christmas?
    • New York City…without a doubtnewyork.jpg
  6. What is the best Christmas gift that you’ve ever received?
    • After my brother passed away, I claimed his baby blanket and slept with it every night. After the blanket turned about 30 years old, my mom went out and bought me a replacement. When she was diagnosed with cancer, that blanket used to sit at the foot of her hospital bed. Now, I sleep with it every night and I’m so thankful for it (I still sleep with my brother’s blanket too…not ready to retire that one either).
  7. Do you prefer giving or receiving gifts?
    • I like the spirit of gifting. I love wrapping the gift and tearing it open. What is inside of the gift doesn’t have as much value to me as watching somebody I love pick apart the beautiful wrap job!
  8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
    • Fake! Because I put my tree up way too early for it to be real.
  9. What is one thing you asked for this year?
    • A puppy…and she came three weeks early. Her name is Benny and she is beautiful!
    • benny.JPG
  10. What is your favourite type of Christmas treat?
  • I love ham for Christmas dinner! I also love a good eggnog drink!

 

SIX DAYS! Can you believe it? 

Merry Christmas, lovelies!

Holiday Date Ideas

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Whether you’re in a relationship or casually dating or committing to some single-time and looking to enjoy some Christmas cheer with your girlfriends, I have come up for a list for you to check off this holiday season!

  • Volunteer! – in Edmonton (Alberta, Canada…brrrr), we have an organisation that puts on a toy delivery for families in need. I did it this past weekend and it was worth every minute of my Sunday.
  • Sleigh ride – bundle up
  • Drive around and look at Christmas lights – go and look at the neighbours hard work
  • Christmas concert – whether it’s your children’s, a church, or one by the local theatre
    • Edmonton had The Singing Christmas Tree this past weekend and it was divine – if you’re in the area, add it to your TO-DO list for next Christmas

  • Christmas movie binge watch 
    • See my last post of Christmas movie recommendations here.
  • Ugly sweater Christmas party

  • Build a gingerbread house – do we ever get too old for this?

What are some things that you do for the holiday season?

Must-Watch Holiday Films

How I haven’t made this blog post in the history of my beloved blog is beyond me. I am a Christmas fanatic. Really. All November and December, I eat, breath and sleep Christmas.  So here, I present to you a Holiday watch list by a (self-proclaimed) professional.

Home Alone

  • No doubt to get a couple of laughs from the fam when you’re watching a much-cuter version of Macaulay Culkin.

home-alone

Santa Clause

  • Tim Allen is like a Christmas movie king. He even stars in Christmas with the cranks as (once again), a grumpy old guy that finally sees Christmas spirit.

Elf

  • Oh Will Farrel…THANK YOU.
  • The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.

The Grinch

  • Did you know Taylor Momsen played Cindy Lou? Because I found that out like two years ago and it threw me for a loop. Still a classic though.

Step Mom

  • Okay, this is just one of my all-time favourite movies ever. Susan Sarandon and Julia  Roberts are: A) beautiful and B) guaranteed to make me ugly-cry. Every. Single. Time.
  • DO NOT FRET – this movie is not black and white.

stepmom

Family Stone

  • Award winning cast who includes Diane Keaton (yes), Sarah Jessica Parker (double yes) and Luke Wilson (drool). Oh, and also will MOST DEFINITELY make you ugly cry.

The Holiday

  • You don’t have to ask me twice about that Christmas fettuccini, Kate. A wonderful and heart-warning drama about love, friendship and the holiday’s.

What Christmas movie are you settling in with for a long winters nap?
