**When Life's Kicking Your Butt, How About a Theme Song? ~ December**

Happy December! As y'all know, my pal, Robyn, over @robgirlbooks, issued a challenge for 2014. She wanted us to come up with a song - one a month - that we turn to when life is getting us down...when we need a pick-me-up...when we need motivation...well, you get the picture. :) Well, 2014 is almost over and we've created a fabulous playlist. This was a fun challenge. I've been introduced to some new music, which is always nice. And I've enjoyed sharing some of my family's favorites. I hope you've enjoyed them as well!


This month's theme is... Holiday of course! ;)  I hope these songs put a little pep in your step and some holiday spirit into your day!

My Picks
I couldn't choose just one. :) Obviously, I like instrumentals. And since my kids and I always participate in the Polar Express Night every year @B&N, I couldn't resist sharing Hot Chocolate!

James' Pick

Sky's Pick

Berk's Pick

Jax's Pick


  1. Feliz Navidad never fails to get me in the mood and bust a few cha-cha moves.

  2. Very nice selection, Brandee! Between you and Robyn, you just might get me in the Christmas mood yet ;)
    Happy Wednesday, my friend. *BIG HUGS*

  3. I love almost all Christmas music so just about anything you picked would be a win for me :) Thanks for sharing!

  4. I feel ya, Naomi. I work at B&N and we start Christmas music before Thanksgiving...I can get tired of it. I think I've learned how to tune it out somehow...*ha*

  5. I'm glad you enjoyed our picks, Lorna!

  6. Music really does help set the mood, doesn't it? I'm nowhere near ready for Christmas but listening to these put me a little into the holiday mood. :) Happy Friday, Lexxie!! **BIG HUGS**

  7. LOL I loved that Jax picked it, Braine. I remember belting it at the top of my lungs and dancing to it when I was little. :)

  8. I love the choices! I just reserved Polar Express after this post. And now I want to listen to more instrumental Christmas music. I don't have any in my collection. I'll have to play Feliz Navidad for Will. That would rock if he started singing along! Thanks for the Christmas cheer Brandee! I love the songs!

  9. We always watch the Polar Express every year - holiday tradition...we watch Christmas movies every night leading up. :) Let me know Will's reaction to Feliz Navidad...I hope he belts it!


Now you know what I think...what are your thoughts??
