Since I was a little girl, I have been a fan of Elvis Presley. Why? I don’t know. He died just under three years before I was born. But there was something about the way he moved, the way he performed, the way he sang, acted, his mannerisms. I don’t know what it is about Elvis Presley that has always made me love him.

Now, I’m not a very holiday person. When I was younger, I loved Christmas because all of my cousins got together and it was just fun. As an adult? It’s kind of just another day that I now have off work thanks to my new job. 

I’m also one of those people who isn’t praying for a Backstreet Boys Christmas album. Now, before you throw anything at me, I’m just typically not into Christmas music. I love “It’s Christmas Time Again” because it’s original and it’s the boys. They could sing the phone book and I would love it. 

But while watching a preview of the boys on the Penatonix Christmas special, I got to thinking about the fact that one day they may record a Christmas album. 

What songs would I like for them to record? Here are five that I think they would sound amazing covering. 

“Blue Christmas” by Elvis Presley

If anybody could sing a Christmas song and make me like it, it’s either the Backstreet Boys or Elvis Presley. This song, with the boys harmonies and AJ’s sexy voice, it would be killer.

“All I Want For Christmas” by Mariah Carey

It’s probably totally insane for me to even LIST this song, but I would love to hear the Backstreet Boys’ take on it. I think Nick’s voice, singing a range higher like he does he some songs lately, would be amazing. Plus Howie’s falsetto? Yeah

“Last Christmas” by Wham!

I have always wanted to see the Backstreet Boys sing “Wake Me Up (Before You Go Go)” for some unknown reason, so it’s only natural for me to want to see them cover Wham!’s “Last Christmas.” Did you know it made it onto the Billboard charts this year for the first time EVER? It was released in the early 80s!

“Christmas Means I Love You” by Garth Brooks

I know this isn’t a traditional Christmas song, but it’s cute and fun, kind of like “It’s Christmas Time Again.” Except, well, it’s got a little twang, but hey, they won a country award so they can do this! Even better if it’s with Mr. Garth Brooks. 

“I Won’t Be Home For Christmas” by Blink 182

Okay, so it’s pretty much an anti-Christmas song, but wouldn’t it be interesting, fun and down-right entertaining to see the boys sing the lyrics to this song?

It’s Christmas time again
Time to be nice to people you can’t stand …

There were no updates last week because frankly, I had way too much going on. But I know that this site is a big part of who I am and I felt empty the entire week from not posting, writing, etc. I worked last Sunday by going on a work trip and worked all week

Me on my work trip to Rome last Sunday.

and I was just give out by the weekend.  Then I had to go two hours away yesterday for something and it just made my day blah. I came home and watched “Suicide Squad” and “Justice League.”

You know I love that Ben Affleck.

So this is what’s going on:

The cruise is paid for! PRAISE HOWIE! Now the only thing left to buy is a few theme accessories and that’s pretty much it! I keep changing my mind on a few theme ideas, so I need to finally settle on it. But I can’t wait until May gets here!

Dream Come True! One of my biggest dreams is coming true two weeks from today – I’m going to Memphis, Tenn. and to Graceland with Lacy! We are staying at The Guesthouse, which is Graceland’s hotel and it’s going to be an emotional experience. I probably won’t wear eye makeup because I’ll be crying the entire time.

Me in the press room.

Sugar Sugar: Still getting my blood sugar under control. It’s tiresome some days and this weekend I was bad with what I ate. It’s high tonight and I feel weird. I’m getting it under control. Slowly.

Moviepass! <3 So I was skeptical at first, but one of my coworkers signed up and Hannah signed up and I finally signed up for Moviepass. Do you know what it is? It’s a program where you pay $9.95 a month to join and you can go see any movie (except 3D things) as many times as you want, as long as it’s one movie a day. I did it for the first time today and I loved it. Seriously, going to the movie one time is basically paying for your monthly subscription. I had planned on going to the movies yesterday, but something was wrong with the one e-ticket place here in my town (I haven’t received my card in the mail yet) and so I didn’t get to. Today, I saw “Game Night,” which I wrote a review for.  So expect to see more movie reviews soon!

My Mom: My Mom found out Friday that she will be getting her prosthetic leg like really soon (three weeks or so) and her goal is to be able to walk in May when Hunter, the little boy she started babysitting when he was six weeks old, graduates from high school. I told her it won’t be easy, but she’s determined. I’ll just be glad when I don’t have to do all this running around for her, like grocery shopping or medicine, etc. She’ll be able to go herself. That’s what makes me really tired a lot is all of that.

But that’s pretty much been it the past week.

Goals for the upcoming weeks:

  • Stop with the sweets. STOP IT KARAH. Get sugar more under control.
  • Try to walk more and get a little workout in.
  • Finalize my theme outfits.
  • Try not to have an emotional breakdown at Graceland. It’s bound to happen.
  • Work on my future (cryptic message).
  • Look more into online grad school because I really want to do that.
  • And help prepare everybody for the most bad ass cruise of all time!

Have a good week, guys. I’ll leave you with a sonnet I wrote in my poetry writing class in college that I just found.

Thought he was the love of my life
That’s why it hurt me so hard
In twilight gloom, it ended in strife
So-called love twisted with my mangled guard

Guilt, pain, all I felt was sad
Bruises, heartache, all that showed was tears
Dreams of that night that turned out so bad
And loosing him was my biggest fears

Years go by, it wasn’t love at all
No calls, no visits, no e-mails so I pray
Obsessions and confessions that made me fall
Making me wonder where my heart went astray

Somehow if only the world could see
All I want now is my heart to be free
