#backthatazzup Christmas Edition {Part 2}

Before we get around to my actual post today, I just wanted let everyone know that I not only got up incredibly early this morning to go to the gym, I also popped out of bed right away.
I did not press snooze.
I did not sit at the end of my bed and stare at the floor.
I did not sit at my dining room table willing a banana to open itself.
I also did not forget to go outside early to start my car and get it warmed up.
Then I got to the gym and worked my booty off. Well not yet, not technically, but you know what I mean, right? Anyway, I'm amazed at myself.

So, back to business!
It's Friday and it's December, guess what that means-

#backthatazzup Christmas Edition!
You can view Part 1 here!
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 

Today let's begin with one of my Grandma's favorites! Pretty Paper by Willie Nelson
It's a sweet little song and my Grandma loves it, so I love it too.

Next we're gonna go with one of my favoritest favorites. You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch.
This is the ORIGINAL version! I love all versions, but this is the one that started my love, so here you go!

For my 3rd choice this morning, I'm going to choose... Happy Christmas (War Is Over) by John Lennon!
To be totally 100% honest, on my personal Christmas playlist I have the version of this song by Maroon 5. I just felt a little bad about using that version, especially when this version is just as good! 

Oh next we have The Christmas Waltz by Frank Sinatra
Again, lots of versions of this song (all christmas songs for that matter) but this is the only one you need to hear! Frank is the best! The. Best. Don't argue!
"It's the time of year when the world falls in love. Every song you hear seems to say, Merry Christmas, may your new year dreams come true!"

To finish off for today I choose Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Michael Buble!
I actually love, love, LOVE a version of this song that's done a cappella and really slow and I can't find it anywhere! Seriously, I can't find that version anywhere and it's THE BEST! So if you find it PLEASE let me know!

That's all we're going to have for today because I have lots and lots of weekend plans and I need to get started on all of them right this minute!!

Be suuuuuuure you link up with Whitney for #backthatazzup

And while you're over there, grab one of her shirts.
Basically, Whitney is the super star of blogging.


  1. I love the ones you picked. Not ones that would pop in my head immediately but really good picks especially Mean one Mr. Grinch! :)

  2. I may or may not have belted out Mr. Grinch all the way to work yesterday. And by that I mean I most definitely did.

  3. I did none of those things this morning! Slept with my contacts in, snoozed through alarms and have half-assed hair today! Hooray for Friday!

  4. gym + christmas music! my favorite.


I love you people! Let's be friends.
