My favorite Christmas songs

Friday, December 19, 2014

I am a firm believer that music can really effect your mood.  If I listen to sad songs I will be in a sulky mood for a while, but when I listen to happy songs, I can't help but smile and dance.  That's what Christmas songs do for me.  They really help get me into the Christmas spirit!  I definitely have my favorites, but I enjoy listening to just about all of them.  Although I must admit, there is one song I will change every single time it comes on.... "The Christmas Shoes".  It's a beautiful song, it really is but MAN, does it bum me out and kill the mood for me.

My ultimate favorite song is: "Rocking Around the Christmas Tree" - Brenda Lee

If that song doesn't get you in the mood than I don't know what will!

A close second to that one is "Baby, It's Cold Outside".  I just love how flirty and fun it is.

I will also listen to anything Christmas-y by Michael Buble, Josh Groban, Pentatonix, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and Dean Martin.  Don't judge me!  I'm all over the place!

What are some of your favorites??

Currently I am...

Loving all of the Christmas movies that are on tv and hearing all of the Christmas music everywhere I go.  Sooo excited for Christmas!!

Reading all of my magazine subscriptions that I've gotten behind on.  Seriously, I still have 4 to read!!

Feeling tired!  I stayed up a little too late last night browsing the internet and wrapping gifts.  I completely lost track of time....darn you, Pinterest!!

Watching "The Holiday" for the first time ever!  It's so funny, I love it!  Definitely adding it to my holiday movie watch list every year.

Writing a bunch of new blog posts!  I got a bit behind because of all my crazy migraines last week...but I'm catching up!

Listening to the rain hitting my house.  It's so relaxing...and it's making me even more sleepy.

Wanting to get my house clean but I just don't have any energy.  Where's my coffee?!

Needing to figure out how to keep the migraines away.  This was definitely a bad month for my migraines.  Sometimes I only get a couple but this month it was just nonstop.

Hoping my husband and daughter love all of their presents I got them!

What have you been up to lately?

Last week I was fighting migraine after migraine so I didn't wear too many exciting outfits, but I did end up changing out of the sweats for a day or two!  I decided to keep it comfy with leggings and a tunic that I picked up at a thrift shop a few months back.  It was only $1, and it's sooo comfy!

I think one of the things that I hate most about migraines (other than the pain and nausea, of course) is the "migraine hangover" afterwards.  My whole body aches and all I want to do is sleep.  And sleep during the day is impossible with an almost two year old running around. lol!  Lately I've felt like by the time I recover from one migraine, another one is starting.  It's been pretty miserable.

On a lighter note, I did get to wrap all of the presents, so it's looking really festive in the house with all the presents under the tree.  I also made a ton of new ornaments for the tree, so that's fun.  We also went to a holiday party over the weekend and had some fun.

What did you do this weekend? Did you do any Christmas crafts this year??
