Happy Monday!!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I’m linking up with MIMM today, so a big thanks to the Healthy Diva for hosting!
Christmas is fast approaching! Can you believe it’s only 2 and 1/2 weeks away!?! Yikes! I did some Christmas shopping over the weekend (I’m so behind this year) and Justin and I put up the tree and did some decorating on Saturday (more on that tomorrow). It’s such a magical and wonderful time of year, so in the interest of getting into the holiday spirit, I thought it’d be fun to share some of my Christmas favorites with all of you.
My Favorite Christmas Song
Carol of the Bells. When I was in grade school, I sang this song at my winter concert and ever since then, I’ve always loved it!
My Favorite Christmas Movie
Irving Berlin’s White Christmas. This is a movie I never get tired of – I make a point to watch it every year during the holiday season (sometimes multiple times!).
The Night Before Christmas. My mom used to read this book to my brother and I when were little around the holiday season. I can still recite the entire story from memory.
My grandma’s Ricotta Cookies. These are another one of those foods that would be made during the holiday season only. This picture is from last year when my mom and I made them together. Sorry about the poor quality of the pic (it was taken with the old camera), but essentially the base of the cookie is ricotta cheese with a powder sugar icing topped with some sprinkles. They’re a very cake-like cookie, but SO delicious.
Melty Mints. Oh man, how I love these candies…so addicting!
The first Christmas after Justin and I got married, I bought this ornament at Hallmark. It’s a great reminder of our first Christmas as a married couple!
This is a very special decoration to me, as my dad bought it for me in 1992 (I was 9 years old at the time). He inscribed the bottom and saved it for me to put in my house for Christmas.
I absolutely love snowmen. This is a very tiny version of my rather large snowman collection. They’re just too darn cute – I can’t resist!
