EYM, Celebrate, Dream Dream Destination

Express Yourself is a weekly Meme dedicated to getting to know YOU better.

Jackie and myself what to know:

What holiday film(s) do you plan on viewing this season?
A Christmas Story - Mandatory
How the Grinch Stole Chrismas - with Jim Carrey
A Charlie Brown Christmas - Of course, it wouldn't be Christmas w/out it.

Every week some us like to share the small things that we have accomplished. Thanks Viklit for giving us an outlet!

God answered a prayer last night and at the perfect time. I gave it to Him after I tried and tried and He came through like always. Two thumbs up to the Big Guy! Christmas will be even more wonderful!

Our work Christmas party is tomorrow and I'm super excited! Bonus: I get to spend it with Jackie over @ Bouquet of Books because my cousin (her husband), my husband, and myself all work there! Casino Night!!
My oldest son had Chemo injected into his fingers to help kill his "aggressive" warts. They are hoping that the Chemo will not only kill them off but also jumpstart his ammune system to start fighting the virus on it's own.

Thanks to Lexa and Julie for throwing such a great Bloghop when it's so cold out!

My Dream Destination would have to be Australia or New Zealand. I have always wanted to go there. I heard the travelling part is long and sucks (this is the part of the travelling where I would medicate myself) but I would do it so I could experience the beauty of the country. My husband said he would never go to the Outback... who ever said I had to take him.

My second runner up for DD... I would LOVE to visit Easter Island. There is something about that place that I find fascinating and magical.

Hope everyone has a great Friday and weekend!


  1. Woot! Can't wait for casino night and to spend time together! :)

  2. Have a great time at your Christmas party! Mine was last weekend, and it was really fun :)

  3. New Zealand is a popular choice!
    We always watch A Christmas Story. Our Grinch movie is the original though.
    And God always comes through!

  4. Great holiday films! Have fun tomorrow ;)
    And yes, God does come through <3

  5. Cool! We have the same dream destination--New Zealand! I'd love to go there to visit to my cousin--and Australia too as I have good friends there. :)

  6. I remember watching the Olympics when they were in Australia - delightful destination indeed! So glad God answered your prayers, and offering some up for your son from my end too. Happy holiday party to you!

  7. Hope the chemo works. Yup How the Grinch stole Christmas (both cartoon and Jim Carrey movie) are must sees at my home every Christmas holiday. Glad to see the December meme is finally up Dani. Yes celebrating the week is awesome and enjoy your weekend.

  8. As far as Christmas movies go, don't forget "Gremlins"-- that's a Christmas movie, too! I hope your son recovers quickly and doesn't have any recurrences. You in the Outback, yes, I can picture it now! You with a pith helmet against a background of kangaroos. Sounds like fun! Thanks for joining the hop! :-)

  9. Australia is near the top of my list too.
    Have a nice weekend.

  10. Lots of people picked New Zealand. Not so many for Australia though. I wonder why.

  11. Like you, I would love to visit New Zealand and (especially) Australia, one of the coolest and most beautiful countries in the world.

    Great post!

  12. I hope you enjoy your work Christmas do. I must say, mine is usually dire but I've managed to get out of it this year, woohoo!!!

  13. Australia would be a fabulous place to visit. (So would New Zealand and Easter Island!) If your hubby doesn't want to tackle the outback, I'm sure he could find plenty of other things to float his boat there.

    Casino night for an office Christmas party sounds like a blast. Have fun!

  14. Oh, Easter Island, yes, very cool! My hubby has camped out in the outback when in Australia for work. I'm jealous that he got to do that (and goes out there regularly), but I have no particular desire to camp there. I'll happily visit the outback, though! I'd like to visit Uluru (Ayer's Rock).

  15. What do I watch. A version of A Christmas Carol usually ends up being watched...especially thanks to Netflix. And, laugh if you like, Die Hard. Because a friend reminds me every year that it's actually a Festive film. "Now I have a machine gun. Ho-Ho-Ho"

  16. Praise God. New Zeland might just be the top destination for this hop. Australia is a good choice and I hope you enjoy yourself when that trip happens.

  17. New Zealand is a popular choice.
    Easter Island? Now I'll have to Google it.

  18. Hope your Christmas party was good! :)

  19. easter island would be awesome! i was actually considering getting married there once....! plans changed however lol

  20. Um, if your husband won't go to Australia/NZ, give me a call, I'd love to go! :)

  21. I've always wanted to visit both Australia and Easter Island too. When I was younger, I even wanted to move to Australia.


I heart me some good comments... and pumpkin spice latte's too!
