Music Monday // Alabama Shakes!

I’ve mentioned several times how much I love when people share music with me, especially when it ends up being good.  But what I also love, is when people share music with me that turns out I already knew but totally forgot about.  That happened the other week.  My sister sent me an email asking if I knew about the band Alabama Shakes – yes, but I forgot!

It’s the little things in life people.
And it led me to spend the week reminding myself how good that band is.  And because you may not know them; or maybe you forgot you knew them; or maybe forgot how much you enjoy them, Alabama Shakes is this week’s Music Monday.

 I love this song.  It’s so fun and energetic – just.good.music!

Anyway, I spent the weekend getting into the holiday spirit.  We’re hosting our family Christmas Eve party at our house this year and I’m trying to help my mom plan and get ready for it.  We went out Saturday afternoon shopping for table favor supplies and I spent some time Sunday working on them, Christmas shopping, watching Christmas movies and just getting excited for the holidays.

 

I’m trying to loose my Grinch-y attitude bit by bit. Speaking of, I totally watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas Sunday night on ABC Family.  Don’t judge.

Have you gotten into the Christmas spirit?

What are your favorite Christmas movies?

  1. I keep hearing good things about the Alabama Shakes.. guess I should check them out! My favorite movie to start the holiday season with is Love Actually :)

  2. I totally listen to Alabama Shakes! I love them, they have such a good sound.

    And P.S., I totally have a Grinch-y attitude towards Christmas music. Not a capella, at-home/church versions, but the radio edits. I CANNOT handle one more tinsel-y redo of ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’! Does this make me a humbug? :)
