Gloomy Day

by Meghann on November 16, 2012

I love the weather outside right now. It’s overcast, slightly chilly, and gloomy – it feels like fall! I can’t wait to curl up on the couch tonight with a hot mug of cocoa and a made-for-tv Christmas movie.

Yes. Christmas movie. This popped up in my Facebook newsfeed this morning.


As well as this.

It has pretty much become a tradition that every November and December I overdose on holiday movies, music, and anything else that’s seasonally themed – I love this time of year! (hence why my wedding is in January and snowflake themed) Plus, the made-for-tv movies are the best – the cheesier the better, am I right?! ๐Ÿ˜‰



I wish I had some soup on hand for this weather, but the eggs did the job just fine. The scrambled eggs included peppers, ham, and spinach with avocado on top.


A blue flax tortilla quartered and served on the side.


And carrot sticks just because.


People voted Channing Tatum as their “Sexiest Man Alive” in this week’s issue.


Who would you put at the top of your list for Sexiest Man Alive? (yes, you may include husbands, boyfriends, or fictional characters in your answer )

I love holiday movies! Especially the old ones =)
And I, of course, say my hubby. And I promise I am not bias! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hands down, Matthew McConaughey (but not in his current condition for his new movie!!!). The pictures from a few years ago when he was running with Lance Armstrong just about killed me….

I am a sucker for ANYTHING Christmasy!!
Sexiest man {besides my hubby} is Ryan Gosling. Why, oh why, did he get overlooked a 2nd year in a row?!?!?

I wish I got the Hallmark Channel! ๐Ÿ™ I love cheesy Christmas made for tv movies. So putting the Mistle-Tones on my calendar to record (though it feels like an attempt to capitalize on Glee and Pitch Perfect’s popularity).

Ryan Reynolds & Ryan Gosling!

The cheesier the better is definitely the motto in my family! I love the made for tv movies but they certainly can be really bad:) I’m so excited for the Christmas season!!

Aside from my husband, it would definitely have to be Matthew Mconaughey!

After finally seeing “The Artist” last week, I have been crushing on Jean Dujardin. Yes at the age of 37 I still get crushes regularly, though not really on the guys that are usually on those sexy lists. I have eclectic taste and I’ve never cared for young men even in my 20s. To me men don’t reach their peak of attractiveness til at least their late 3os and even more so into the 40s. Now that I’m in that age bracket that’s no issue anymore ( though I had no problem dating an older guy in my 20s ).

i’d have to say ryan reynolds, ryan gosling, and derek hough for the sexiest man alive. but now i need to get my hands on that issue of people because channing tatum is up there too! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Having watched Coldplay on tour, I reckon Chris Martin deserves a mention!

14 Jules November 16, 2012 at 6:45 pm

I’m a Grinch. Not a big fan of Christmas movies and I don’t even really like putting up the Christmas tree. My mother was the same way and I used to make fun of her, now I’m the same way.

I am a country girl and I really like country boys. Kenny Chesney is YUMMY!

Oh man…can I marry Channing Tatum PLEASE?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I am a HUGE Christmas fan and love all of the cheesy movies. I am not a huge Channing fan so I would have chosen Ryan Gosling or my all time favorite, George Clooney. He keeps getting better with age ๐Ÿ˜‰

I also love this time of year. I am the same way when it comes to overdosing. I say why not? I don’t have a pick for the sexiest man unfortunately. I just like men in general most of the time. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yahhhhh Channing is not the sexiest man alive. Ryan Gosling? Joseph Gordon Levitt? Yes to those!
