Winter is an amazing season filled with amazing things. I wanted to compile a list of my top 10 favorite things about winter that make it my second favorite season, following fall! I hope you enjoy this Gif story.
1. CHRISTMAS MUSIC
I'm gonna Jingle Bell Rock Around The Christmas Time Is Here Comes Santa Baby It's Cold Outside all month!
2. WE CELEBRATE JESUS' BIRTHDAY!
I absolutely adore everything about Christmas, especially carols and re-tellings of Jesus' birthday. Even though most scholars agree that Jesus was probably born in the Spring, I still love celebrating his birth around this time each year!
3. THE FOOD OF THE SEASON
4. CHRISTMAS LIGHTS!
Listen. I'm in love with all of the Christmas light events happening this year. I want to go to all of them!
5. COOL WEATHER
Anything but snow, because it literally turns to ice in 2 hours where I live, and I'm not trying to fall!
6. GIVING GIFTS I KNOW THEY'LL LOVE
I've always LOVED giving gifts because it gives me the chance to show the people I love that I'm listening and really want to provide them with something they can use and will love for years to come!
7. HOT COCOA
Need I say more?
8. CHRISTMAS MOVIES
Don't worry, you can expect a TON of Christmas movie reviews and suggestions right here on TheOpinionatedOne.com OR on Twitter!
9. TONS OF GET-TOGETHERS
This time of year features tons of get-togethers for me at least. The hubby has a Christmas thing, I have two Christmas things, then we are going home to have even more Christmas things. So EXCITED!
The cold weather is the perfect time to snuggle with your favorite person, or animal.

Yet another month has gone by, so now it is time again for another monthly favorites blog. Keep reading to find out more about the products, services, or entertainment I've loved this past month!
I always like to try a new beauty product or two each month to see if I like something more than I like the product I'm already using.
E.L.F. LIP EXFOLIATOR, SWEET CHERRY | $3
DOVE BODY WASH | $8.94
Here are a few things in the entertainment category that I've loved this month:
As for the YouTube channel I've loved most this month, that would have to be Daz games. I've always been a huge fan of Daz, but I've gotten into watching him more lately. He does use some language, so be advised before watching this with younger children. He's really funny and I love watching him play horror games because of his reactions.
Thanksgiving is all about the food. Here is what I loved this month:
Not everything that I loved this month was visible, so I wanted to share some of the things that have helped me this month that aren't tangible.
I don't talk about this too often because I strongly believe that we are now in a place where God is moving and working during each church service. That's not to say that I never felt anything in our old church, but this is something different. I come out of each service feeling emptied of my woes and feeling God so strong in my heart. I'm so thankful for that!
TIME TO JUST BREATHE
November was an insanely busy and stressful month for me. We remodeled and cleaned my mom and grandma's rooms and I had a huge project that I only had about two weeks to work on. I'm thankful that everything went off without a hitch, but I'm even more thankful for the time I had following the project where I could just relax and take it easy. If I was going full-speed like that all of the time, I don't know what I'd do.
As I said, it was a busy and stressful month, so that's really all that I have for you for this month's favorites blog. Since December is next and I'm sure I'll be getting some new presents, I am sure the monthly favorites blog will be much longer.
Don't forget that blogmas is coming and I'm participating. I'm also doing a Tweetmas tag in December. You can find details about that on my Twitter feed. I hope you'll check it out!
