I'm dreaming of a White Christmas...♥

Woo-hoo!! Now that I am off work for the day I am OFFICIALLY on vacation for the next few days and I am soooo excited! I've only been working at the bank since September but I already feel like I need a break from that place. Dealing with people's money is waaayyy more stressful than you think, and especially around the holidays people get very nasty and rude! I guess all those scrooges get extra angry around Christmas, but who the heck knows...?

All I do know is that I'm gonna sleep in this week, get our Christmas cards printed up and mailed out, wrap presents and ship them to our families, and finish up the last of my Christmas shopping. Hopefully by this weekend I will have accomplished everything on our list! :) I only wish my hubby were gonna be on leave as well, but since he cant take his until January it looks like I'll be on my own this week.

Anyway I have been on a Christmas movie kick this week and so far I have watched, "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Miracle on 34th Street." When I was a kid my mom always made us watch these classic Holiday movies along with "White Christmas" but my absolute favorite has always been "Holiday Inn" with Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire and Marjorie Reynolds. The more I think about my love of all things vintage, the more I realize I have my Mom to thank for that. (She also used to make us watch all her Elvis movies! lol). So heres a little clip of one of my favorite songs from the film, I hope you enjoy it! :) The song is a remix but the clip is still good! And if you have never seen Holiday Inn, go watch it! Its funny, charming and just down right fabulous! ♥



  1. I always think I'm the only one who watches old Bing Crosby movies! White Christmas and Holiday Inn are two of my favorite Christmas movies.

  2. I looove it!! =)) I wish I owned those movies... seriously need to invest in them. And yes, Mom is to thank for our love of all things vintage, I'm sure. =)) I think I'm going to netflix those two movies next since they aren't available for instant queue. =(

  3. that's a great movie!!!
    and I love those old Elvis movies!! My favorite growing up was Kissing Cousins. My grandma was obsessed with him. :D

  4. Love the blog.. def. going to check out the movie!! : )

  5. I don't think I've seen "Holiday Inn"! Just last Christmas, my love's family introduced me to "White Christmas," and I loved it so much that we bought it this year and will be making it part of our Christmas tradition. "It's A Wonderful Life" is another of my family's favorites!
