UglyChristmasSweater.com

I have found the best website for holiday lovers!! Never mind the term 'Ugly', it is not what it seems. Ugly Christmas Sweater is enough to get you festive in feeling Christmas cheer!
I love Ugly Christmas Sweaters so much that I asked my boss if we could wear one each Friday in the month of December. He heartily agreed but reminded me to keep it clean. Not my strong suit, I'm afraid. I chose a sweater that I won't be able to wear to work, but luckily there is still time to get another fast!
Let's see what Freda chose....

Warm, soft and fits like a glove. It is very true to size. I absolutely love it!! For those who know me, will agree it is perfect. I may be a lady but swear like a sailor. 😁 

There is such a variety of holiday wear, not just sweaters. The sweaters are beautifully made though, and I can just imagine how soft and warm the pajamas are....



Go to Ugly Christmas Sweater and spend the next few hours of your life picking out the things you want for the loves …

Happy weekend to you all!
You'll be happy to see I am off Harry Potter. In lieu of Nonfiction November, I went with a memoir of sorts. You will all know who she is, another member of the 27 club. (R.I.P.)
I'm posting early since I'll be at work.

#Win The Incredibles 2 #Movie (US)

In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.

Catch my review, or watch the trailer... or do both. :-)

As Lord Voldemort tightens his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds, Hogwarts is no longer a safe haven. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort's defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information. Even as the decisive showdown looms, romance blossoms for Harry, Ron, Hermione and their classmates. Love is in the air, but danger lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.


My book review for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

REVIEW: I liked this adaption. I hated one part with a passion though. The same part that got me so choked up while reading, they completely ruined and altered for the film. I didn't appreciate …

Discover Donna's (Meryl Streep, Lily James) young life, experiencing the fun she had with the three possible dads of Sophie (Amanda Seyfriend). As she reflects on her mom's journey, Sophie finds herself to be more like her mother than she ever even realized.


REVIEW: Great story and sing-a-long!!
Cher singing Fernando was literally everything to me. She is freaking amazing!!
I was surprised at how great the actual story was in addition to the singing of Abba's songs. The songs coincided very well with whatever was happening at the time too.
I loved how the film floated between the two eras and story lines. One being the current day with the daughter finding out why her mom went to Greece in the first place, and then back in time when the mom was young and arrived with her choices that led up to everything.
It was so good. One of my favorite musicals to date now.


5/5

REVIEW: What a fun movie! One for the whole family, the kids will love the superhero aspect while the parents will get into the adventure and story. The first one was slightly better but it was filled with action, laughs and wild antics. I really enjoyed the superheroes becoming villains for a spell. It w…
