Blogmas: Top 5 Christmas Movies to Watch in December

It’s December, it’s almost Christmas, it’s cold enough to cuddle with blankets, so you best believe that I will be watching my Christmas movies (and binge-watching Disney+) with pleasure!

So grab your own blanket, slip on those fuzzy socks, pop the corn, and take a seat with me. Take a vote and tell me below which of these five is your favorite!

5. Frozen (the first one, I haven’t seen the second one yet!) (While it is not technically a “Christmas” movie, the snow and ice is enough for me to consider it a December must,

 

4. 2003 ELF  (I’m not always a fan of Will Ferrell, but he nailed this role!) Plus, Buddy is pretty much a modern-day Rudolph (the comparisons are solid, trust me, I did the analysis).

3. 1990 Home Alone (Yes, he is a total brat in the beginning who needs a good spanking, but you gotta love his ingenious booby-traps and the humor. Plus, he learns his lesson! Kind of…)

2. 2000 How the Grinch Stole Christmas (I swear this is one of Jim Carrey’s finest roles! I usually watch this movie multiple times during the holiday season. Plus, you have to enjoy the humor snuck in there just for the adults.)

1. 1994 The Santa Clause with Tim Allen 

By far, this is the best Christmas movie. When I imagine “Santa Clause,” Tim Allen is the only face I see. For all I am concerned, he IS Santa Clause. It deals with real life issues like divorce, it has holiday joy, it has snarky sarcasm, and it leaves me with a happy feeling inside.

 

What do you think? Am I missing any of the classics? What is your top holiday movie?

Today is the Day: Graduation!

That’s right, today is Graduation Day!

(Legit: I think my hair looked just like Anna’s this morning when I woke up)

I’m super excited to walk across that stage in just a couple of hours!

Even though they’re going to hand me an empty golden tube with my fake “diploma” in it, that golden tube represents everything that I have accomplished! It represents sleepless nights, feeling of insecurities, moments of triumphs! It reminds me of my family and my friends who have supported me through it all. I could not be more blessed. I have been in school all my life, I never took a break moving from high school directly into college, graduating and then moving forward into the Master’s program. So this graduation is going to mean a bit more than the ones before. This time when I walk, I will be leaving school. While I may return to education later on in life for a Doctorate degree, momentarily I will be saying goodbye, or possibly see you later. . .

I will be moving on to a new stage in my life and I am ready to welcome this adventure with open arms!

Anywhooo . . . . . .

I wanted to share with you my graduation cap design! I thought long and hard, went back and forth between ideas but here it is!

I wrote/drew everything by hand so I’m pretty pleased with the result (especially since I messed it up twice and had to redo it 😥😅). While I debated between doing something like “Mischief Managed” or “May the Odds be Ever in Your Favor,” I decided that this quote was more apt. Words truly are our most inexhaustible source of magic! – Albus Dumbledore

Oh and a HUGE THANK YOU to all my new and old followers! I was just notified that I’ve reached 500 followers! What an awesome Graduation Gift! Thank you!
