Is it just me, or did this week last for basically a decade? I know I can't be the only on! It's like time slowed down because it knew next week will be short because of Christmas, so it had to drag out this work week in total agony.

Despite this week taking forever, it was still unusually busy in the evenings, so I'm going to make this a quick post for Five on Friday!

1 // I love Chelsea's post about her top 15 photos of 2015! Thanks to feedback from her readers (i.e. me and Elyse), she made it a link-up, so we can all join in on the fun! I'm planning to post mine next week, because it will be tough to choose my top 15 when I have 15 million Millie pictures to choose from.

This picture definitely needs to make the list, right?
2 // My co-workers (somewhat) surprised me with the sweetest baby shower last night! Lots of  our volunteers came out as well, and we enjoyed some sweet treats and a very delightful hot chocolate bar. I'll have to do a roundup post for my showers before Aida actually arrives!

3 // They just released the teaser trailer for Fuller House, and I confess I almost started sobbing when I watched it. Could be pregnancy hormones, but more likely it was Miranda's song, "House that Built Me" playing in the background, plus the appearance of what looks to be the Comet of Fuller House.

4 // I'm jealous of all my teacher friends who get a two week break after today (and you ladies deserve it!), especially because I've still got three more work days until my holiday begins. However, I am grateful to have a job that gives me paid holidays, and plenty of vacation so that I can take a few days off between Christmas and New Year's, and still have enough for maternity leave.

5 // Matt and I watched the Bill Murray Christmas special on Netflix the other night, and it did not live up to my expectations. However, it did have some good lines in it, and I love a good Christmas sing-a-long, especially when it includes Fairytale of New York!

And that brings me to today's song for #JAMPackedHoliday. One of my roommates during college was Irish and she introduced me to this song, and I've loved it ever since! It's very crass, and contains about zero Christmas cheer, but I still listen to it every year. Sometimes, Christmas songs explore the darker side of the holidays, and that's okay (I discuss that briefly in another post here).

Hope you all have been enjoying following along with #JAMPackedHoliday! What are some of your favorites at this time of year?

All Love,
