#Blogmas Day 3: Christmas Movies

What’s Christmas without Movies??

Every year around this time I look forward to Freeform’s (previously ABC Family) 25 Days of Christmas. It’s basically all the greatest movies showing everyday until Christmas, exciting, right?

Here are my Top 6 that are a MUST see every time –

As much as I enjoy these movies I also share my TV time with Hallmark Channel. Their Christmas movie program is also one to keep up with; good movies showcasing everything you love about the season.

Soften cream cheese in a large bowl
Add eggs one at a time and combine
Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth

#Blogmas Day 1 : Holiday Wish List

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me ……..

A Wish List of her heart’s desires

Hey guys and welcome to my 12 days of Blogmas

Why 12 days?
Well, we all know how difficult it can be to come up with, edit and publish posts daily.
So I figured I’d narrow it down to 12 days:
12th December – 24th December

What better way than to start with a wish list?

Dear Santa,

holiday-wishlist

  1. Kipling Ravier Backpack
  2. PUMA by Rihanna Creeper
  3. Crush by Rihanna
  4. Nikon D3200 *or any other model*
  5. Betsey Johnson Rose-Gold Watch
  6. Passion Planner

 

Hopefully I’m on the nice list. 🙂

What’s on your wish list this holiday season?
