It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

December 15, 2009

I love 'things to be happy about' lists. When the Christmas season arrives it's super easy to get bogged down in the shopping, buying, eating, drinking and everything that the season encompasses, so here's my top 17 things I'm happy about -  but this time, a Christmas version:
  1. Christmas Trees. One day I will be at the National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony as well as visit all the major trees around the world. Feel free to join me.
  2. Roommates, Villa Malibu, Malibu, Pepperdine - everything that encompassed my last 4 years.
  3. Christmas music - everything from 'NSYNC, Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey, to Nat King Cole & Barry Manilow. 
  4. Christmas at Starbucks, even if they start celebrating before thanksgiving.
  5. Smores - 'nuff said
  6. Gingerbread houses, tacky sweaters and wayyy too much candy.
  7. The decorations, lights, smells and colors of the season.
  8. Watching A Christmas Story on repeat starting at 8pm Christmas Eve all the way until Christmas Day
  9. Taking a nap by the fire on Christmas Day.
  10. Celebrating my moms birthday.
  11. Changing the Advent Calendar every day.
  12. Mistletoe.
  13. The change in the weather, just cold enough to wear scarves, boots & comfy jackets.
  14. Christmas baskets filled with cookies, candies, cakes & fudge!
  15. Christmas Specials - especially ones dedicated to old SNL bits  like 'schweaty balls' and those featuring Mary Katherine Gallager.
  16. Christmas presents, wrapping paper, santa bags & lots of ribbon.
  17. Everyone being together, celebrating together and just enjoying one another.
