Here are a few of MY favorite things this christmas holiday season that cheer me up whenever I'm homesick and make me even more excited to go home : )
In no particular order...
Starbucks Holiday Drinks
Pathetic, Little Apartment-sized Christmas Trees
I present to you my sweet little christmas tree, standing at about 5 feet. It's decorated by all things Ikea and Canadian Tire (the tree itself cost only 30 bucks from Canadian Tire). I love my little tree... of course I wish it was bigger and well, real, but it fits quaintly into my sweet little 550 sq ft apartment. My cat, however, has a love-hate relationship with it... he goes from curling up underneath the tree, to ripping it down to the floor like he was GODZIRRA and the tree was a building in Japan.
I don't have a picture of Biggie (the cat) in his Godzilla phase, but there is a picture of him looking quite innocent underneath the tree. My handsome little cat seems to have his mind confused... Friend or Foe? To me, this little bugger of a tree is my FRIEND. Cheers to PATHETIC LITTLE TREES! ...Just look at that "snow" at the bottom. Brutal.
Unexpected Christmas Displays
Vancouver Christmas Pride
Songza. They have apps as well for iPhone and iPad, probably for other smartphones/tablets, and they have numerous playlists to listen to. Favorite christmas song of all time? Well... It's... .....
MERRY CHRISTMAS, BABY!
excuse the weird imagery in the video... and just enjoy the audio : )
