I thought I'd include two media pieces in this Friday's post. One being a photo of me from last night after I'd just gotten home from a day of Christmas shopping, thrift shopping (found an AWESOME bag for $6), the library and a little outing to pick up some Christmas decorations and some cocoa, cider, cookies, etc. Basically all the things you would want or need if you happened to be snowed in. The other media piece is a Bright Eyes version of Blue Christmas. I love listening to different band's and artist's Christmas albums. I love Harry Connick Jr and Michael Buble but Justin Bieber's and Never Shout Never's are great too. I just love all Christmas music pretty much. It's kind of a coin toss as to whether or not we're going to get snow this weekend. My phone weather app says it's going to snow all weekend but weather.com says it's just going to be sunny and cold. It's been SO cold - like in the twenties and thirties! This weekend is supposed to be the coldest weekend in the greater Seattle area in FIFTEEN years. The last time it was this cold I remember, I was like seven or eight and the snow was deep it was almost as tall as I was. I have the memory in my mind of not being able to walk down the steps of our front porch because it was just like a wall of snow. We're probably going to get our Christmas tree this weekend and do some gingerbread house building! So everyone stay warm, stay cozy and be happy!

I'm normally pretty wary of sequels but this one looks awesome. I just love the cast, it even has that guy from Chronicle, which I also loved.
