Since I missed Friday favorites last week instead of waiting, I decided to do them today. lucky for you guys!

The Mindy Project‘s Christmas Episode: I think we’re all going to have to accept the fact that this show will be included in my favorites until the season ends. Wreath Witherspoon, THAT GREEN DRESS (which looks so much better on TV than it does on instagram), the almost proposal, the recommendation letter! ugh.

Welch’s Peanut Butter and Jelly snacks: Ok, I know it sounds gross – peanut butter covered fruit snacks. I wasn’t too sure about them either but seriously, I’m addicted. They come in either grape or strawberry, creamy or crunchy. My favorite is creamy grape. Try them – you’ll love it!

Winter programming: All of my usual “stories” are going on or have gone on winter hiatus. It’s killing me, but at least now there’s all new shows swooping in to fill their place. Lifetime has a new reality show coming out on New Year’s Day about plus size dating called Big Women:Big Love. This should be a beautiful train wreck. I’ve been in the trenches of the war on love for the bigger girl (president of the “friendzone reporting for duty!)  and I can’t wait to see how it’s portrayed. And, BONUS JONAS: SallyAnn Salsano, of Jersey Shore fame is involved. Like I said, beautiful train wreck.

Christmas commercials: I’m not going to lie, the commercials this year have not been the greatest. However, I really like the one with Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard. They’re really cute together and I have no doubt in my mind that this is 100% them.

To round off this list, I have some not-so-favorites

Christmas gifts: In my family we do a secret Santa since we don’t have any children left. I went shopping and basically after a whole day at the mall, the only person I bought for was my secret Santa. Now it’s almost 3 weeks later and I can’t find the gift. ANYWHERE. It’s mind boggling because I also lost the stocking stuffer gifts I bought for my cousins. It’s like they fell into a Christmas black hole. Hopefully they turn up soon or else everyone is going to just have to accept a smile and a big Christmas hug from me this year.

My face erupted: I’m not prone to breakouts. So tell me why (ain’t nothin’ but a heartache), all of a sudden, my face turned into break out city. ugh. It’s probably all the stress about lost and unpurchased Christmas gifts.

Gray hair: After Thanksgiving, I noticed that I had a few more straggly gray hairs than usual. Upon closer inspection, I realized they’re all over the place! rude. Premature grayness runs in the family, or so I’m told, but still ain’t nobody got time for this. At least I’m not balding.

I think that’s about it. Talk to you soon!
