I'm Dreaming of a White July?!

Nope, it's not snowing here or anything like that. My sister came to visit this past weekend and I suggested that us girls (my mom, sister, and I) should go to the outdoor classic movie on Friday night. Now, my mom and sister are not fans of classic movies so I was completely shocked when they agreed to go. The movie of the night was White Christmas. Everything around put me in a Christmas mood: Christmas cookies at the concession stand, a brass quartet playing Christmas favorites, and the temperature dropping to a record low. When the movie ended at 11pm, I could no longer feel my body, but all I could say was "I wish it was Christmas..."

I've definitely enjoyed having all these days off work, but they flew by too quickly. I have to go back tomorrow, unfortunately. Luckily, I'm going on vacation on Sunday, so I won't have to work too much. I meant to have a rather royal post out last week, but once again, time seemed to evaporate. I hope to have it up soon and don't forget to vote in the new poll!

Do you remember in the 90's ABC used to always play Christmas movies in July? (like the stop-motion ones from the 60's) Now every year at this time I really get in a Christmas mood!

White Christmas here I come :) (though I wish I could see it on the big screen too!!)

Wow, that sounds great! From time to time they'll show outdoor classics here, but never with a band (or concessions!) fun. :)

White Christmas made a Rosemary Clooney fan outta me. Great movie.

Kate: I do remember that! I loved watching those old Christmas movies in the middle of summer! Its sad they don't do that anymore : (

Juliette: Yeah, its nice having the band and concessions. Although the food is a bit pricey.

I really like Rosemary in White Christmas too!

Carrie: Haha, I know! Its pretty sweet. They've only been doing this outdoor movie series for three years so I still get super excited about it.
