A Holly Jolly Holiday Roundup

     It's no wonder why the last few months of the year happen to be my favorite out of all twelve of them.

     It all begins with the graceful transition from summer to autumn.  When the foliage blossoms into vibrant reds and sparkling golds.  When the sunlight filled days turn into cozy afternoons spent by the window, watching as the raindrops have a race down the glass panes.  When coffee shops trade in their sugar induced beverages for tranquil teas and smooth, spicy lattes.  When the days get colder and shorter, and the outfits get warmer and, in my opinion, cuter.

     But let me get to the real point of this post . . .



     C H R I S T M A S ! ! !


     My apologizes, I get a tad bit overly excited at the mention of this particular holiday.  Apparently my family and I are "Christmas fanatics". *pfffttt* Nonsense.

     So today, in honor of the season, I thought I would share what holiday festivities keep my occupied during the weeks leading up to Christmas Day {and just a whole bunch of holiday related topics in general}.   

     Now, let's get to it, shall we?

     My Holiday Playlist:


         My Holiday Essentials:

    •    All things and everything red and green
    •    Fuzzy socks {bonus points if they have a cute pattern or animal on them!}
    •    Sweet smelling treats baking in the oven at all times
    •    And Christmas music playing on repeat  
    •    Loads of sparkly, glittery, shimmery lights in all sections of the house {they're more than just an accessory for the tree!}
    •    Matching jammies for the family
    •    My super soft, super fluffy, super, duper comfy, cozy, knitted scarf worn in this post {and this one!} a couple of years back
    •   Snow.  Though, unfortunately, I've never witnessed a white Christmas. This shall be the year, however.  I feel it!  

         My Favorite Holiday Traditions

    •   Baking the most delicious cookies that make the house smell like heaven itself and decorating them all Pinterest-y like {and failing miserably}
    •   Watching "A Charlie Brown Christmas", "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and "It's a Wonderful Life" every year with my family
    •   Dragging out the Christmas decor the week before Thanksgiving
