Friday Five

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... 

So, I love Christmas. Always have, always will. Like, spent the day cutting out Christmas props for our office Christmas.. sorry.. holiday.. party (Twice, to be exact, because I realized too far in that I should have printed them on card stock...) and making detailed party planning spreadsheets kind of love. 

In honor of my favorite time of year, my Friday Fives for the month of December will be holiday themed. This week will be my top 5 all time favorite Christmas songs, which was extremely hard for me to narrow down (in no specific order - that would be way too hard). I usually strictly abide by the day-after-Thanksgiving rule when it comes to Christmas music, but I have to admit, I cheated a little this year. 

Baby, It's Cold Outside. Specifically, the Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey version. I know, I know, the relationship is over, but it's still one of the best versions out there, hands down. 

All I Want For Christmas Is You. Obviously, this is a no brainer. Whenever I hear this song, I have a specific memory of belting it out with my best friend in her kitchen when we were in middle school, which makes me love the song a little more. 

I'll Be Home For Christmas. I never really cared about this song until I went to college, and all of a sudden I couldn't wait to go home for Christmas break and see my family and old friends. Ever since, it's become a favorite. 

All I Want For Christmas Is A Real Good Tan. I'm all about a white Christmas (but on Christmas only) but I think I may be more about white sand on Christmas. Kenny Chesney nails my feelings of spending Christmas on a beach in this tropical tune which is now a Christmas classic for me. 

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas. Every single time I hear this song, I think of my grandpa. I can still picture him and hear him singing this as he would walk into my parents house during Christmastime, or when there was fresh snow on the ground, and it always makes me smile. This song always gets me into the Christmas spirit. 

And for a bonus song - Baby! It's Christmas by Jessie James Decker. It only came out this year so I felt like it didn't have the right to make the official list, but this song has been on repeat. Especially in my car. Such a good belt out song. 

What's your favorite Christmas song?
