Lucky Me, Lucky You!

Remember that giveaway I won at Pots and Pins? Well, CSN contacted me to do a giveaway, too. I ended up getting a nice santoku knife and some other cool kitchen stuff with my winnings. CSN doesn't just do kitchen stuff, though. They have a huge variety of stores that stock everything from baby bottles to corner tv stands.

My winnings saved the day as far as potato mashers in our house, because Alex used my potato masher/pastry blender to mash potatoes recently and broke it in four places. He is very muscular. Now I have one of those awesome squiggle wire hard core ones. Potatoes beware.

For a chance to win a $45 gift code, just leave a comment with your favorite holiday movie title or quote, and I'll do a drawing on Friday.

My favorite holiday movies are Elf and White Christmas. The first for the fun; the second for the memories.

My personal favorite holiday movie is "White Christmas" and "A Christmas Carol". The kids favorite is probably "The Polar Express".

My favorite is It's a Wonderful Life. But I also enjoy the comedies like Elf and Christmas Vacation.

I like the Movie Serendipity.
It opens and it closes in Bloomingdale's at Christmas time.

Oooo! I love my santuko knife and squiggly potato masher. It's excellent for making refried beans.

Oh yeah...Muppet Christmas Carol all the way!

I can't go through December without watching Elf!

"Watch out for the yellow ones, they don't stop!"

The Stratton's said...

Elf. For sure. And I think every line in that movie is classic!!!

Linz said...

A Christmas Story!!

"Daddy's gonna kill Ralphy!"

"Fragile. That must be Italian!"

"You've always been jealous of this lamp!"

I could go on... ;)

The Lemmon's said...

Always the classics... "White Christmas", "It's a Wonderful Life", "How the Grinch Stole Christmas", and "A Christmas Story". Though, finding a free night to watch them is getting to be a trick! :) Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!!

"Lord help the Mister who comes between me and my sister,
And Lord help the sister who comes between me and my man!"
- White Christmas
Love it!

I always have to watch While You Were Sleeping at Christmas time, and this probably doesn't count, but it's my favorite Christmas Movie (They have Christmas in that movie, so I think it counts.) And it's not a quote (wow, this is a stretch....) but there is a scene where a kid is delivering newspapers and he's on his bike, but he throws the paper so hard the he throws the bike out from under him too. Pretty dang funny in my book.

So, if that doesn't count, I love Elf particularly the line "let's make quiet your new favorite". :D

I'm scared for your Mashed Potatoes! They are SO gonna get it!

I love the opening of "Love Actually," which opens on Heathrow Airport with Hugh Grant's voice:

"“Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around.”

I hope.
