Christmas In July

Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I could have my house decorated for the holiday all year long. People think that you lose the magic if you have your house decorated for the holiday too long. I completely disagree with that. For two years, I left one of those 3 ft. table top Christmas trees decorated in my bedroom and I loved it. I loved turning on the lights at night and looking over and seeing it. I would get that warm, fuzzy Christmas feeling all over. It really is the best time of the year. At least to me it really is.

Now if I had Christmas decorations up all year long people might think I was a little nutty. Plus my fiancĂ© refuses to let me decorate any day before Halloween is over. So this July, I've decided to celebrate Christmas in July and will be posting about Christmas all month long. I figure since I can't decorate my house for another 4 months, I'll get my fill on here. So let's get this Christmas Party started with some of my personal Christmas photos!

Welcome to Christmas in July! It's going to be a month of fun posts!

Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that means it's Theater Thursday! I love movies and almost every Thursday on here you'll find me talking about a movie that's available to watch at home. Since yesterday was my Birthday, I'm going to pick one of my favorite movies that I loved watching when I was a teenager. Who am I kidding? I still love watching this movie. This week's featured movie is, My Father The Hero.
My Father The Hero came out in 1994. I was in middle school and totally wanted to be Katherine Heigl. TI was obsessed. I wanted to dress like her, go to the bahamas and stay at the resort that she did (that still rings true) and I was loving the music. I totally knew who the Baha Men were years before they got a big hit (Who Let the Dogs Out!). If you haven't seen it then you need to watch it...

The movie follows Nikki (Heigl), a 15 year old girl who is headed to spend her yearly two week vacation with her estranged father Andre (Depardieu). Andre lives in Paris, France with his girlfriend. This time he's come to New York to pick up his daughter and head to the Bahamas for the two of them to spend some quality time together. This year though he's noticed how much Nikki has grown up in the past year. Nikki wants nothing to do with this vacation and she is determined to let Andre know that fact.

Once they touch down in the Bahamas, they arrive at their plush resort (The One and Only Ocean Club) and she immediately runs into Ben (Dalton James). A local guy who works at the resort. She is instantly smitten on and what happens? She runs into a table in front of him. To try to impress him she lets on that she's a runaway and Andre pretends to be her father but is her boyfriend. Ben doesn't know what to think but he likes Nikki and wants to help her. He pleas with her to leave Andre and stay in the Bahamas with him.

When everyone around the resort starts to hear that Andre is her boyfriend and that he's basically with a child they start to shun him. He has no idea what is going on until it gets to be too much for Nikki and she comes clean with her dad.
And that's when things start to get really interesting... If you want to know what happens you have to watch!

If you've seen this movie and have questions come ask me on instagram! You can find me at jmomiller. I'm telling you this movie is fun and campy and I still love it!

Birthday Wish List

As I get ready to turn another year older, I thought I'd mention a few little things I'd love to get this year for my Birthday.

1. The Christmas Vacation Village.
Department 56 is doing the National Lampoons Christmas Vacation houses and they are too cute! Since I love the movie and I'm obsessed with Christmas it's a perfect match. They also have the sled shack and the kids playing on the saucers. Be warned... the set is expensive and each piece is priced individually.

2. The Chocolate Truffle Christmas Tree.
I wanted this tree last year for a new themed tree in my house but I just didn't end up getting it. This year I'd like to add it to my collection and make a whole new display. Since we are in the new house and have the room it would look perfect! It's an unlit tree and I already have the perfect lights to go on it. It can be found on Treetopia.

3. Grey.
I read all of the Fifty Shades of Grey books and saw the movie. I hadn't heard anything about another book until this past week and I immediately wanted it. It technically doesn't come out until the day after my birthday. I can't wait to get it and read it. I love that this book is from Christian's perspective.

4. California and West Virginia Pillows. Ok... and the Tennessee.
I first saw these while we were on a weekend trip in Las Vegas. They are completely embroidered and they are so cool. It has things that are local to each state and includes landmarks. I think these are great but their expensive! Like over 100 dollars for each pillow. Maybe I'll have to just wait and ask Santa for these.

I'm sure that no matter what, I'll have a good Birthday. For the first time in a few years, I'm actually going to work on my Birthday so it doesn't really feel like I'll be celebrating it that much. Maybe I'm just not into it this year. Usually, I'm more excited about birthday but this year I just feel kinda blah about it.
