REVIEW:
Hours, no, days of fun!!!
I love coloring. Have loved it my whole life. It's calming, you create beautiful things, and you feel happier seeing the beautiful pictures in color.

I sat down to watch a movie, pulled out the coloring book and pencil crayons, and a couple hours later, couldn't tell you what happened in the movie. It just so happened to be National Coloring Book Day when I started this one, and that was cool too.
These intricate designs take a while to color. It's been over a month for me. I color for a bit, become more relaxed and at ease, then set it aside. I always came back to it when I felt stressed and needed a back from the norm.
Now, I've almost got the first page done.
Okay so I went a little overboard on the colors. The hubby said it was busy as heck, but like I said it was done in pieces and whatever felt good to me at the time. I will have to limit my colors in the next piece.
It was as fun as when I was a kid though. Time flew by, and I am okay with what came out. With coloring books for adults being a big thing right now, this is one people will definitely enjoy for its' designs, and that it will take you some time to get through. This is a great book for taking your mind elsewhere or nowhere at all. 

5/5

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
