Top 10 Holiday Songs

ho ho ho

My holiday season is not complete without this Top 10!

I’m certain that no two people would have identical lists, perhaps one or two of the same songs. However, we all have those artists that make us remember what the holiday truly means. My list may not be your cup of tea, but I get in the spirit of the season when I hear these.

Lay back and sip the spiked egg nog…

Let It Snow – Boyz II Men

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause – J5

Another Lonely Christmas – Prince

Ave Maria – Stevie Wonder

Silent Night – Temptations

The Christmas Song – Nat King Cole

Oh Holy Night – ANYONE

One Little Christmas Tree – Stevie Wonder

Santa Baby – Eartha Kitt

This Christmas – Donny Hathaway


Happy Holidays!!

Top Ten Holiday Movies


We all have them- favorite holiday movies. Whether we own them or not, I look forward to these films to make me laugh, cry, sigh and remember. This is my top 10.

10. Best Man Holiday – Obviously new to the list.
9. Frosty the Snowman – It is technologically dated, but still a fav. It reminds me of Christmas as a kid.
8. A Charlie Brown Christmas – The Peanuts gang of course! I forgot Lucy was rough!
7. Four Christmases – HI-LA-RI-OUS!!!!!
6. The Santa Clause – This was an original take on the Christmas movie. A new twist for the holiday.
5. Prep and Landing – A great story and chance for kids to see the process and execution of global present delivery.
4. Olive the Other Reindeer – My daughter and I loved this one. How could you not know about Olive?
3. This Christmas – Rife with family drama, laughter, sex and healing, not to mention some awesome actors, I love this movie. Idris Alba. Only drawback is Chris Brown singing a Donny Hathaway classic…you just don’t… Did I say Idris?!?
2. A Christmas Story – Do I need to explain why?

Drum roll….

1. How the Grinch Stole Christmas

In case I have to say it, the original. The cartoon version is the only one as far as I’m concerned. The Jim Carey grinch is downright scary!!! The Ron Howard production does not register for me ( and I’m a Howard film fan).

Unattractive and Unfriendly



Washingtonian Magazine readers rated DC as the least attractive city. San Francisco was tops.

There are no words to describe his life. He is finally at rest.

My Bad


I have been remiss as a blogger,  neglecting my post(s)…ha, ha…

Anywho, senior year is kicking my ass and it’s not even mine!!! Scholarship apps, essays, senior pics, fees, homecoming- it never stops.  Yet I’m trying to keep my eyes wide open because I know she’ll be off to her new life before I can blink.

In between time, I have been working on a personal project that’s long overdue: a series of poetry books. The last few weeks, I’ve been editing, tweaking and writing; now, I’ve just secured the perfect designer to infuse his artistry with my passion. I am soooo excited!!!

PR has been my professional gig and career but writing, that’s for me, it’s mine. It balances and nourishes me. Seriously. I’d be way wackier without it. So if there are any poetry enthusiasts, stay tuned…
