    I love shopping for gifts too! That's probably one of the reasons almost all of mine is done. I need to see if there's still a tree lighting ceremony in my area. I used to love going to that in our little town back home! Off to check out the mashup!

    I love pulling in to my neighborhood after work and seeing all the houses that are lit up on the outside, or have thier trees in a window. It makes my heart so warm. I love all the Christmas things!

    I have yet to pick up our tree this year! It's a must this weekend. As for the Lake Eola tree lighting – I'll be there too! Always down for some food trucks.

    Even in Paradise looks SO good (and I love that Gatsby-esque feel). I need to read it!

    I heard that the mashup was out, but I haven't actually listened to it yet. Excited!! I love this time of year too. We are in full blown holiday mode right now and I fully expect to get nothing that doesn't pertain to the holidays done before the new year!
