These are a few of my favorite things...

I've compiled a list of my favorite holiday movies, songs and treats! It just wouldn't be Christmas to me without these things:
Love Actually (2003)
BEST Christmas movie EVER!! :) Just warms my heart. I try to get Mase to watch it with me every year and every year I finish it on my own as he snores away. Oh well, I will continue to watch it again and again, by myself if I must! ;)
Starbucks Peppermint Mocha
As you may remember, I was not a fan of Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. I am, however, quite a fan of this tastey treat. Whip cream, peppermint sprinkles and all...Mmmm!
"Santa Baby"
By far the sexiest Christmas song of all. Makes me want to buy a cute little Santa dress and prance around the house, while singing... "Forgot to mention one little thing, a ring... I don't mean on the phone!" ;)
A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
Merry Christmas Charlie Brown!!! I LOVE when this comes on! Cute little Charlie and his pathetic little tree! "O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree". My fav part though is when Linus tells us what Christmas is all about!
Peanut Butter Blossoms
I make a batch of these delish cookies ever year right before Christmas! They are the perfect blend of Chocolate and Peanut Butter! I'll post the recipe another day...

White Christmas (1954)
An oldie, but a goodie! Such a sweet little Christmas movie that I love singing along to! A friend and I even choreographed a dance to the "Sisters" song for theater class during our sophomore year of high school! Wish I had footage of that! Ha!

"Baby It's Cold Outside"
Another one of my all time fav Christmas songs! And don't judge me, but my favorite version of this song is the one that Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey sang together. I know I am soooo lame! ;)
Bluebell's Peppermint Ice Cream
Peppermint bliss.... this delicious concoction made by Bluebell is only sold during the holiday season, making it even more crave-worthy! Go and getcha some, you won't be dissapointed! ;)

Mariah Carey Merry Christmas Album

Released in 1994, MC still has the best Christmas Album around, in my humble opinion! Just can't beat "All I Want For Christmas"!

So there ya go...just a little sampling of what I'll be viewing, singing, and eating this holiday season! What are some of your Christmas favorites???
