It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Happy Wednesday! We're halfway through the week! Thank goodness today ended up better than yesterday! Everything went so smoothly today. God just said, "Ok, no more testing you, you've proven that you can handle it." Thank goodness he did because I was just about at my breaking point. 

Anyway, enough about that, let's talk about some fun stuff! Christmas, maybe?? I'm thinking we're all getting in that spirit from the looks of yall's blogs. I know what some of you are thinking right now. "What happened to Thanksgiving?" Little 'ole Thanksgiving just seems to be forgotten, agree? But for some reason I just lump turkey day right in there with Christmas. Thanksgiving is when I really REALLY start getting in the holiday spirit. Ok, I give, maybe I'm already REALLY in the holiday spirit, but Thanksgiving is like the starting line, and when the meal has been eaten it's like "ready, set, go, Christmas!" So, today I wanted to talk about some of the things that really get me excited about the holidays.

 I went back to B&BW today (remember they were sold out on Saturday) and stocked up on some of my favorite holiday scents!

I'm pretty sure I could watch this movie in the middle of July and get excited about Christmas! The leg lamp, the bunny suit, the 'triple-dog-dare,' the Red Rider BB gun, well I could go on and on. I love this movie!

My family has watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade for years! I look forward to this every Thanksgiving. And the Rockettes can put anyone in the holiday mood!


I started listening to Christmas music a couple weeks ago (don't judge, you know you did, too). Kenny Chesney's Christmas album is one of my favorites! "All I want for Christmas is real good tan...."

When our house (well, this year my house too!) is full of the scent of yummy cookies and desserts I know it's the holidays! My mom and I are constantly baking during Christmas.

Cute Christmas shirts always put a smile on my face! I picked up this fabulous Liz Claiborne (desgined by Isaac Mizrahi) shirt today. Isn't this so cute?!

Are you excited about Christmas now?? Oh, I can't wait to start decorating next week. I have picked up so many great things for my first big girl Christmas!! And there will certainly be pictures to document! 

So, what puts you in the holiday spirit?

The Vanilla Bean Noel is amazing! I like watching Love Actually at the start of the holiday season! I'm also one of those people who puts up the Christmas decorations right after Thanksgiving (while the eggnog cheesecake cools, of course)!
