Happy New Year!

Happy New Year

 

In lieu of today’s Plinky question of the day, I wanted to wish you a very happy and safe New Year.  Thanks for sticking with me in 2011.  I’ve got some changes and surprises in store for you for 2012.  I’m excited to for what the new year is going to bring.  Something tells me it’s going to be a good one.

My Bookworm Santa Reveal (#BookwormSanta)

The Magic Attic
I’d like give a big THANK YOU to Michelle and Bree for hosting this amazing event.  I was looking for a way to participate in some holiday fun and this turned out to be the perfect event.  On to the big reveal…


WHAT I GAVE

The name that was picked out of the Santa hat for me was Angel over at Book Flame.  I sent Angel the following books from her wish list:
The Hunger Games  City of Glass
I hope she doesn’t already have copies and that they’re picks she really wanted.  *crosses fingers*


WHAT I RECEIVED

Whoever my Secret Santa was I want you to know that I think you’re made of AWESOME.  Here’s a pic of what I received:
My Bookworm Santa
I was rendered speechless.  Thank you so much for the amazing package.



*UPDATE*

I just found out my Secret Santa was Peggy from Pawing Through Books.  THANKS AGAIN PEGGY!!

Plinky Question of the Day

plinkybanner

The Plinky Question of the Day is a weekly feature I added to the blog to get to know you guys better and vice versa.  Sometimes the questions will deal with books or reading but, most of the time they won’t.  Because, let’s face it, there’s more to us than what we read.

 

What are your most and least favorite things about the holiday season?

 

Okay so I’m kind of cheating this week because I just did a post about my top 10 favorite things.  I know, I know…apologies but, today’s going to be hectic so I need to minimize my online time.  So here goes…

 

 

Some of my MOST Favorite Things

Spending time with family

Decorating the tree

Christmas music

 

 

Some of my LEAST Favorite Things

Mall crowds (especially obnoxious ones)

Scrooges

Christmas music (What can I say?  It’s a love hate thing)

25 Days of Jubilation – Day 16

Jubilation 2

 

Hello party people!  Welcome to Day 16 of the 25 Days of Jubilation!  I’m stoked to have you here.  Today I’m sharing my top 10 favorite things about the holidays.  So kick back, relax and get ready to feel all warm and fuzzy.

 

MY TOP 10 FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT THE HOLIDAYS

 

10.  Fun Holiday Reads

Two of my current faves are…

Sweet Inspiration  Sweet Magik

 

9.  Decorating the Christmas Tree

I’ve always enjoyed decorating the tree with my Mom and sister.  To be honest, I kind of miss them now that I have to decorate it without them.  Shhh!  Don’t tell them.  They’ll think I miss them or something.

8.  My Aunt’s Holiday Cookies

The woman can cook and bake just about anything, but one of my favorite things is her holiday cookies.  There is no end to her imagination.  Like that one time she made eggnog cookies.  Holy crap those were good.  What am I saying?!  They’re all good!

 

7.  My Dad’s Hot Chocolate

It can revive the dead it’s so good.

 

6.  Finally Getting to Enjoy Some Cold Weather

Living in Miami you don’t really get to experience “cold weather” per say but, I can’t help but get excited when it dips into the 70’s and the humidity stops relentlessly beating the crap out of us.

 

5.  Watching Everyone Get into the Holiday Spirit

One of the best places to witness this is at my job.  It is a full on war to see who can decorate the crap out of their desks / rows.

 

4.  Finding the Perfect Gift for the People on Your List / Watching the Giftee’s Face Light Up with Surprise and Joy

It gives me such a feeling of completeness to finally find that perfect gift that I know such and such will love and then seeing the joy on their face when they open it.

 

3.  Christmas Music

Crazy, right?!  But I love the stuff.  Especially this little ditty.
 
 

2.  Giving to a Good Cause

This year my job did a pajama drive for a local orphanage.  I donated two sets for some for the older kids who sometimes get overlooked because of the younger ones.  It feels good to be able to give back.

 

1.  Spending Time with Family

Nothing makes me happier during the holidays than to be able to spend time with my amazing family.  It’s what the holidays are all about.

 

 

Thanks for stopping by and spending some time with me ladies and gents.  Don’t forget to stop by our host ladies’ sites for a complete 25 Days of Jubilation schedule and for information on their awesomesauce giveaways.  Speaking of giveaways, don’t forget to enter my giveaway for a book of the winner’s choice from the Book Depository.  You can enter using the Rafflecopter form below.

Plinky Question of the Day

The Plinky Question of the Day is a weekly feature I added to the blog to get to know you guys better and vice versa.  Sometimes the questions will deal with books or reading but, most of the time they won’t.  Because, let’s face it, there’s more to us than what we read.

 

Name your favorite old movie.

 

It’s a toss up between:

 

Casablanca Movie Poster

 

Casablanca Happier Times  Casablanca Piano scene

Casablanca Bar Scene   Casablanca

 

 

Casablanca makes me sigh out loud every single time I watch it.  What?  You haven’t seen it?!  Okay stop reading and go check it out.  Seriously.

 

 

Sound of Music movie poster

 

Sound of Music meet the kids   Sound of Music gazebo dance

Sound of Music Favorite Things   Sound of Music mountaintop

 

 

This was my grandma’s favorite movie and it always reminds me of her when I watch it or listen to the soundtrack.

 

 

My inquiring mind wants to know. What are some your favorite old movies?
