I've been feeling a little Grinch-y this year about Christmas. And I don't really know why. I just feel like I am being forced into it, like it's coming so fast and I can't stop it. And I normally love the holidays. But this year?? Not so much.
So I need to focus. Get into the Christmas spirit. Shake off the Scroogieness. Think about all the things I love about Christmas. Things like...
... My Christmas Tree - Which is so beautiful!
... All my gorgeous ornaments that make me happy.
... Seeing a tree strapped to the roof of a car.
... Watching Love Actually.
... Listening to Uberman sing "I feel it in my fing-ahs!" after watching Love Actually.
... Boo singing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer in the shower.
... The smell of wrapping paper and ribbon.
... My SIL's fudge. It's a party in your mouth.
... Frank Sinatra singing Jingle Bells.
... Breakfast at my MIL's on Christmas morning (which usually includes Uberman's Nana's homemade chorizo).
... Christmas Cookie Yankee Candles.
... Watching The Family Man.
... Baking cookies.
... Christmas parties.
... My pearl snowman earrings, a gift from MIL's best friend Patty.
... Christmas cards in the mail.
... My new True Shimmer Peppermint Rush chapstick.
... My Aunt K's no bake cookies. She makes them every year on Christmas day just for me.
... Watching Home Alone with the kids.
... Dean Martin singing Baby It's Cold Outside.
... Balsam and Cedar Yankee Candles.
... Bath & Body Works Mistletoe soap.
... My red, faux fur trimmed Christmas purse.
... My comfy flannel red plaid Mickey Mouse Christmas pajama bottoms.
... Watching Elf.
... Johnny Mathis singing It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas.
... My sparkly silver ball earrings.
... White twinkle lights.
... Making Wonder Mix for the neighbors. (And Uberman, who hates sharing it with the neighbors.)
... Watching Christmas Vacation.
... Seeing Uberman in his "Merry Christmas, Shitter Was Full" t-shirt.
... Getting all dressed up to have lunch a few days before Christmas with just my mom and Boo.
... Mint M&M's.
These are a few of my favorite things......
