Music Monday: Christmas Is A-Comin'!


Well, that was quite a weekend for me, folks. I spent most of Thursday writing the first draft of an essay I hope to have published, got badgered by my doctor about losing weight on Friday and later had a panic attack at the grocery store. Nice, right?

I will admit that even though I'm planning to make nifty food gifts for everyone this year, I am not feeling Christmas spirit at all. HUBS and I tried to remedy this by getting five holiday films from the library this weekend and watching all but one so far. The result? I now want to stuff my mind with as many cheesy Christmas movies as possible. Here's what we've watched so far:

1) Jingle All the Way (Sigh...)
2) Arthur Christmas (Nice, better than I expected.)
3) The Santa Clause (Possibly the most boring Christmas movie I've ever seen.)
4) Santa Baby (Notable mostly for the fact that Jenny McCarthy's chin is broken out for the whole movie. Look, girls! Sure, she's got a hot body, but she's also got acne! She's just like us!)

Next up is the live-action version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The Grinch has always scared me a bit, so I'm a bit nervous about my response to this, but I'm diving in anyway! Any recommendations for holiday films we should watch to prep for the season?

OK, let's get to the music!

What's the silliest holiday movie you've seen?

I am still a big fan of The Christmas Story. I even have the leg lamp.

Gosh I haven't even started Christmas shopping yet... Sigh! However, I have been cooking allot... LOL. Love the play list. Happy Holidays, :-)

Crafty: My husband loves that movie, too. He had me watch it with him last year. I have to say, I did not get the appeal. But, it's always good to have a go-to holiday movie to get you in the mood!

Susan: Since I'm baking all but one of our Christmas gifts this year, I'm able to forgo all that what-to-get-whom anxiety. It's so nice! Glad you like the tunes, Happy Holidays to you as well :)

Kristen: The night after we watched it the sequel was on tv and I thought it was way more enjoyable than the original. If you like that one, I'm with you there!

I like National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. It's just so over-blown in all the stupid things Clark Griswold does. I could watch it over and over again. Kinda makes me feel like less of a putz when comparing myself to that character!
