Baby It's Cold Outside

As I was driving into work this morning, a Christmas song came on my iPod. Yes, I am still listening to my iPod because I still do not have a radio in my car. Not. happy. I only have one Christmas song in shuffle and it is my very favorite, Baby It's Cold Outside. This is my favorite version. Maybe it's my favorite because it is on the Now That's What I Call Christmas CD...the only holiday CD I own, but still, I love it. Oh I also love the hippopotamus song, but that is a story for another day.

Yes, I listened to it and it gave me that happy, Christmasy feeling inside...just like the one aisle of Christmas decorations in Costco on Sunday gave me. Now, I am usually very anti early holiday excitement. The fact that there are really Christmas decorations out before Labor Day does sound ridiculous. But you know what? I'm totally into it this year. Now don't get me wrong. I love me some summer. All this talk of fall on the bloggies is lost on me. It has been such a cool summer here and this morning it was 49 when I left the house. 49! I am just not ready for the warm weather to end. But I am ready for the holidays!


Matt will tell you, I am decorating obsessed. I'm constantly forcing him to stop and look at Christmas sales throughout the year, especially after Christmas where they have great deals! I listen to exclusively Christmas music during the holiday season (yes, before Thanksgiving) and it puts me in such a wonderful mood. It is impossible to get road rage when listening to this stuff! I'm ready for that mood. But listen winter, I do NOT NEED SNOW for that mood. Well, only on Christmas...and then you must disappear before everyone steps in you and you get dirty and gross.


So here's wishing the holidays come a little quicker, the weather stays a little warmer (at least give me 70's!), and heck, if I'm wishing for stuff, the weekend comes a little sooner!

!!!!!!!! Baby it's Cold Outside is my favorite Christmas song, too!!! Followed closely by (don't judge) Mariah singing All I Want for Christmas is You. I can't help it. I love it. Totally brought on by Love Actually, naturally.

I LOVE THE HOLIDAYS!!!

I was updating my iPod this morning and paused over my "Merry Mix" wondering if it was too early to put it on the 'pod. I decided it's never too early for Christmas :)

"my mother will start to worry, my father will be pacing the floor, so really I'd better scurry, well maybe just a half a drink more"

oh wow I am totally a Christmas nut! I too listen to Christmas music as soon as the radio starts playing them, which in the last few years has been weeks before Thanksgiving! Love me some holidays and Christmas carols! We've had great weather here for the last week too, no a.c. and all the windows open, this is Kansas for petes sake! It's still supposed to be in the 90's! (please note that I am definitely NOT complaining about the cooler temps!)

I do indeed love Christmas and the holiday season - especially snow and all of the skiing that comes with it - but I am still all about the fall! I love the temps when you wake up and its chilly, slowing warming themselves until they are comfortable and perfect to be in. It makes Fall just that much more enjoyable than the Christmas season. But I am totally looking forward to Christmas! Like you, I am always listening to Christmas music and cannot get enough of the sales, decorations and more! :)

I'm excited for the holidays because it will be that much closer to my hubby coming home, but other than that, I just *love* fall. :)

Oh, and my fave Christmas music -- I just recently became a fan of Josh Groban's christmas album :)

I had the same feeling when I walked down that Costco aisle last week. And on my beach trip in July, the only thing I bought was a Christmas decoration I found on clearance. Ahh I love Christmas. But I hate snow. I am like you, snow on Dec 25 and then goodbye please.

Is it too early to put up my tree?

I love that song!!! My mom had the barry manilow version when we were little and now EVERY year we whip it out and belt it out at the top of our lungs.

Can you send some of that cool weather my way? I could listen to Christmas songs all year long!
