Holiday Playlist

Dec 20, 2012

Christmastime has never been that big of a deal in my family. Thanksgiving? Yes. Birthdays? Loads of fun. Christmas? We were always at my grandparents or traveling somewhere. Even as an adult, I've never gone out of my way to do anything spectacular during this time of year. Case in point: Last year at this time I was headed to California.

This is what Christmas in Cali looks like. Pretty sweet if you ask me!

I even spent New Year's Eve on a plane. (I learned my lesson about NYE years ago.)

It never occurred to me that this might be odd until The Boyfriend came along (henceforth he shall be called "The Boyfriend" -- no more "unicorn" talk out of respect to his masculinity). The Boyfriend views Christmas the way I view cheese (which is funny because he hates cheese; I don't consider it a flaw because it leaves more for me): The Best. Thing. Ever.

While I spend the next week learning about what I've missed out on for the past three decades (read: I'm going home with him for Christmas -- EEK!), I'd like to point out two things I don't need help with: 

Food. I love me some holiday fare, especially when we're talking about Trader Joe's seasonal treats. (I'm currently munching on Mini Peppermint Waffle Cookies, and I have chocolate cheese -- YES, CHOCOLATE CHEESE -- in the work fridge for a snack later, plus plenty of Peppermint Joe Joe's at home.) I'm stuffing as much of it in my belly as I can before January 2nd when I will quite literally turn into a pumpkin. Mmm...pumpkin... (As far as I'm concerned, pumpkin season is still going strong!)

Music. The point of this post. Some of my favorites below. Happy Holidays!
