Who Spiked the Eggnog?

Straight No Chaser just released their first ever music video! It’s holiday-themed, which obviously pleases me to no end.

Here’s the video for “Who Spiked the Eggnog?” a song off their latest Christmas CD, Christmas Cheers.

I love this acapella band and own both of their Christmas CDs (highly recommended). The happy, upbeat music always ups my Christmas cheer.

Straight No Chaser: Christmas Cheers


Lunch today was a ginormous salad featuring lots of random veggies, fruit and cheeeese.

Tuesday's Lunch

I topped a bed of fresh spinach with leftover green beans and broccoli from last night’s dinner, mushrooms, homemade cranberry relish, feta and goat cheese. I used Annie’s Naturals raspberry vinaigrette dressing for added sweetness.

All Tossed Up

I’m on track to meet my veggie-quota for the day!

A Rare Appearance

Today I randomly snapped a pic of my elusive morning snack. As you may remember, I usually do not take pictures of my snacks, but today I was feelin’ pic-happy.


I made a quick microwavable quesadilla. I just placed a stick of string cheese on a whole wheat pita an microwaved it for 45 seconds until the cheese was melted. Easy, warm, delish ‘dilla!


I will be leaving work early today for yet another Invisalign appointment with my orthodontist. IΒ  actually don’t mind these appointments (I have to go once every six weeks) because my orthodontist is amazing and is engaged as well! I love all the wedding talk! πŸ™‚

After my appointment, I am hoping to make it home early to take Sadie on a walk with Ryan before dinner. Then I’m hosting our weekly girl’s movie night! We’ll be watching Elf, one of my favorites.

"I'm Buddy the elf! What's your favorite color?"

My sister and I quote this movie year-round. It’s the best!

What’s your favorite holiday movie?

My top three holiday favorites are:

Click here for MovieFone’s list of the top 25 holiday movies. Somehow How the Grinch Stole Christmas, A Charlie Brown Christmas and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer didn’t make the list! I’m confused.

  1. My fave is definitely Christmas Vaca. I am pretty sure it is on every night this week on TMC. I watched some last night.

    Also, cheese quesadillas are a staple for me. I’ve always loved them.

  2. I think they didn’t make the list becuase they aren’t movie length? Or weren’t released in theaters? I could be wrong though!

    I love Christmas Vacay and the Christmas Carol with the muppets (uhh is that embarrassing?)

  3. My favorite holiday movie? I am going to go with “A Christmas Story”! That movie just makes me laugh out loud every time I see it. But I built it up so much that when I finally got my husband to watch it he thought it was just okay! Bummer!!

  4. I love Elf, such a cute movie!

  5. ahh straight no chaser is from IU, i love their christmas stuff!!
    gotta love elf πŸ™‚

  6. Oh I love Elf so much! Another favorite of mine is Love Actually….not a real Christmas movie but a good part of it takes places around Christmas. Love Hugh Grant!

  7. I used to love watching “The Santa Claus” with John Lithgow and Dudley Moore. It’s such a strange movie – where they eat the candy canes and it makes them fly. Does anyone else remember this movie? My current favorites are Christmas Vacation and Elf though!

  8. Elf is my favorite too! I My sister and I always will laugh and say “I know HIM! I know HIM!” year round. Oh, how it would be nice to live closer and hang with you to watch it. πŸ™‚

  9. I love Home Alone 1 & 2. It makes me think it doesn’t matter about presents as long as you get to spend Christmas with the ones you love. I’m soppy aren’t I? πŸ™‚

  10. Oh how fun!! That is totally my fave Elf quote too! hehe! Have fun tonight!!

    I think A Christmas Story is my fave. Does Love Actually count as a holiday movie? I LOVE that one!! πŸ™‚

  11. I’m recording Rudolph, Grinch, Shrek, and any others I can find for us to watch when you are home! I think Christmas Vacation is my favorite, but I have a few others that come very close! xo Mama

  13. I LOOOVE Christmas movies! My top 3 favorites are Elf, Home Alone, & Christmas Vacation. I also like How the Grinch Stole Christmas (with Jim Carrey), Miracle on 34th Street (the remake), and any & all Christmas movies made for T.V.
