Leopard Print Coat
A few years ago, I saw a leopard print coat at Ross. I thought it was the cutest, but I couldn’t justify buying it — mostly because I couldn’t think of a single place I’d wear it. (A holiday party? Maybe?)
I now realize that was silly. Where can’t you wear a leopard print coat?
I’ve already worn this beauty to church and to the library. I also wore it to pick Matt up from his last final, and I felt like a Real Housewife of New Jersey (or anywhere, really) rolling up in my leopard print coat.
I’ve been kind of bad this year about buying Christmas gifts for myself — instead of just sending the link to someone else to buy it for me. And this coat was one of those purchases. But in my defense, I had a gift card. So it was kind of like a really late birthday present to myself.
On Monday, I talked about my family’s favorite Christmas movies, and today, I thought I’d share my “awards” for the Christmas movies I’d watched on Netflix so far this year. (Very important.)
Note: I’m excluding the “real” movies from the list (the 3 Santa Clauses, The Grinch, While You Were Sleeping).
Best Christmas/Halloween Mashup: The Spirit of Christmas (She falls in love with a ghost at a haunted inn.)
Most Realistic Plot: Naughty and Nice (An LA radio DJ is suspended and has to go to a sister station in a small town. And then he falls in love with the local morning DJ. It could actually happen.)
Best Repetitive Plot: 12 Dates of Christmas (She relives Christmas Eve over and over and goes on the same first date many times — maybe 12.)
Best for Fans of the Royal Family: A Christmas Prince (She goes to report on the party boy prince — and then falls in love with him.)
Best Awkward Elevator Encounter: A Christmas Kiss (As you might suspect, the kiss happens in an elevator.)
Most Obvious Product Placement: A Christmas Kiss II (Sponsored by Jared and The Leo Diamond. Apparently.)
Best Beauty and the Beast Rip Off: Christmas Belle (They’re not even subtle about it.)
Most Obvious Plot Twist: A Holiday Engagement (Surprise! She falls in love with her fake fiance.)
Also, apparently Haylie Duff had a small career as a Christmas movie star. She’s in three of these movies. (Matt actually wanted me to rank each movie from 1 to 5 Haylie Duffs.) I think Naughty and Nice was her best movie, and I also really liked Christmas Inheritance and The Spirit of Christmas (which don’t have Haylie Duff).
Thanks for reading!
