SELL OUT ALERT: Cape Ann Symphony Holiday Pops TOMORROW (SAT)!

Once again, we’ve got you covered with a sell-out alert while you can still get tickets. Sunday is sold out, but if you act fast, you can get into tomorrow’s Cape Ann Symphony Holiday Pops Concert. BUT … they won’t last long so CLICK HERE and get them now!

I’m a Total Sucker…

I’m a total sucker for those incredibly sappy Hallmark Channel Christmas Movies.  Seriously can’t get enough.

November and December is clearly all about the boys and making the holidays special for them…but, after they’re tucked into bed…give me a pumpkin beer and a completely cheesy Hallmark movie and I’m in it to win it.

As if the movies aren’t excellent enough…the Hallmark commercials = total warm fuzzies.

So, here’s my public service announcement for you all ….

The Count Down to Christmas Hallmark Holiday Movie Fest!  (I may have added part of that title)

Entire Schedule HERE!!
