Wanted to take this time to wish all of you a very happy and safe New Years! I will write more when I get back home about my own year in review. I accomplished a few things this year that I never thought in a million years I could ever be capable of doing.  This past year I really focused on making my physical body better, I think in 2013, I will focus on my spirit and mind.  What are some of the things we are most proud of this year?

Joy To The World!

I hope everyone had a wonderful day yesterday! Sorry, this is a day late. I was too busy playing Bey Blades, Angry Bird Star Wars Jenga and Apples to Apples. I also had the pleasure of going to see Les Miserables (review to follow at a later date) with 2 of my favorite people.  Our celebration continues today with my Sissy and her family.

Joy To The World: Aretha Franklin (my favorite version of this song)


1 More Day: Oh Holy Night….

is quite possibly my favorite Christmas hymn. I can’t help, but always tear up when I hear this song at Christmas Mass.  I have enjoyed many versions of it. Here are some of my favorites, traditional and non-traditional. I have to thank my BFF for helping me discover many of these version through her Christmas compilations.

Jennifer Hudson’s version

Neil’s Diamond version.

Weezer’s version

Tracy Chapman’s version (this is very lovely)

One of my favorite things to do today is track Santa on NORAD with the boys. I think I get more enjoyment out of it than they do. If you would like to check it out click here.

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas Eve day and night. I hope your day and night is filled with joy, laughter and love! Enjoy the ones around you, especially the little ones. It is great to see all of this through their eyes. xoxo


Day 3: Baby, Please Come Home

For those waiting for love ones to arrive!

An extra clip and songs for all U2 fans out there. If you scroll to minute 5, you can see the fabulous Do They Know It’s Christmas video. It has such a great showcase of the 80s fashion and all the magnificent coif’s of that time.


4 & 3 Days Until Christmas: Wonderful Christmas Time and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Sorry, yesterday was busier than I anticipated and I didn’t get a chance to post the song for day 4.  As we approach the last few days before Christmas, please take the time to breathe and enjoy the company around you. These past few days, I have been able to see and hang out with some of my favorite people and it has been wonderful! Looking forward to having s’mores this afternoon with my family and my oldest, oldest friend and her husband!

Day 3: Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas by Billy Joel (My favorite version)
