Hi, y'all! Guess what? It's Christmas Eeeeeve and this makes my heart feel so so happy! I'm so excited to open gifts with my family, to see their happiness (I hope) when they see what I've chosen for each of them. And for the first time in, like, ever, I have no idea what my husband got me.

So anyway, last year I took a bloggy break between Christmas and New Year's, and this year, with the exception of a couple guest posts, I'm doing the same. I'm really excited about reading a bunch of "me" books I've been purchasing like mad. I'm also hoping I don't spend this year sick like last year. Ugh. That sucked.

Also like last year, I'm doing this Happy Holidays post, Love Actually-style. It's my favorite Christmas movie, and I can't resist sharing my love.

Sigh...To me, Andrew Lincoln is perfect. I much prefer him looking all clean, happy (albeit heartbroken), and not running from zombies. I like to pretend he's holding that sign for me, instead of the dummy, Juliet.

Billy. I love that old perv.

I loved these two. Striking up a friendship/romance while standing-in (naked) on a movie set? Priceless.

I had the biggest crush on Colin Firth.

Awww...Prime Minister Hugh Grant and "His" Natalie

Now, the music...

Happy Holidays!

  3. Oh my god!!! I knew I loved Andrew Lincoln but I did not place him at all! Thank you so much! I'm a huge fan of The Walking Dead but only watch Love Actually about once or twice a year and I had NOT put this together. Funnily enough I was sitting there looking at the picture that you posted and I was staring at him trying to place exactly where else I saw him. You have saved me from three hours of trying to figure that out! Thank you!!

    Now I must go watch this movie! Have a great Christmas! Don't get sick this year! :D

  4. I love that movie!!! Great post babe! I hope you and your family have a happy holiday!!

  5. You know, this is horrible but I don't know that I have watched Love Actually. If I did I don't remember. So I will check if its on netflix and make sure we watch it tonight or tomorrow. Happy Holidays!

  6. WASN'T LOVE ACTUALLY LIKE THE BEST FREAKIN MOVIE EVER!!!!! *sigh* It's definitely at the top of my list for Holiday movies, and I can't wait to watch it again this time around! Thank you for sharing this thoughtful post, Andrea! I hope and your family have a wonderful Christmas/holidays and warmest of wished from me! :D

  7. Enjoy your end of year blog break, Andrea - you deserve it! I also have the urge to just read books that I have bought/been sent without the need to review them or take notes!!

    And I loved this tribute to Love, Actually!!

    Also, thanks for the really sweet comment on my vlog last weekend :D <3 <3

  8. I hope you had an awesome holiday!! I've been spending all my gift cards on Amazon sales on some great deals/books! Cheers, Happy New Year and enjoy the break. :D

  9. Have a nice relaxing break! I'm relaxing and catching up on quite a few books I've been meaning to read.

    I have to watch Love Actually! I've never seen it and everyone tells me I HAVE to. It's not on Netflix.
