Pass the Popcorn: Favorite Holiday TV Movies from the 90's

Hello friends! Well, this week was kind of a bust in terms of holiday movies. I had zero chance to sit down and enjoy a movie. Sad, right? Since I don't have any new or recent movies to chat about today, I thought I would take a trip back in time and talk about my three favorite holiday movies that were on TV in the 1990's. It has been years since I've seen these movies and I would give anything to see them again. I wonder if they are on YouTube...

Mistletoe, holly, and cowboys, oh my! Christmas in Texas has never been sweeter.

Years ago, Chase Morgan traded in his dusty cowboy boots for the shimmering lights of New York City and a fast track up the corporate ladder. But when his shiny life is turned on end just in time for Christmas, Chase knows he needs to reevaluate even if that means going home to Texas to endure his least favorite holiday.

When Mr. Tall, Dark, and Smoking Hot walks through her door at the Magic Box Guest Ranch, Faith Walker sees just another handsome, rich exec looking to play cowboy for a week—at her expense. She’s sure the grumpy, but sexy as hell Scrooge will put a crimp in her holly jolly plans. Until a sizzling kiss has her seeing him in a new light.

Chase is haunted by secrets, and even though it goes entirely against her “hands off the guests” rule Faith is tempted to help him leave the past behind. As the magic of the season swirls around them, she is determined to succeed because it because now she is certain one sweet, cowboy Christmas will never be enough.

Just one more case…

After her father’s death, FBI Special Agent Toni Blades promised her fiancĂ© she’d step down as an undercover agent. But that was before the biggest case of her career landed on her desk – a large scale, sex trafficking ring and she’s tasked with finding its leader.

It’s only one last undercover job, what could go wrong?

Las Vegas Detective Leo Castellano made the same promise to Toni and planned to keep his word, as soon as he closed his last missing persons case. But when his case overlaps with hers, it takes a turn neither was prepared for. The future Toni and Leo imagined is suddenly jeopardized and now, neither can walk away.

Will they find the ringleader before it’s too late, or will Toni’s broken promise turn deadly?

Pass the Popcorn: Pets, Royalty, and Ice Sculptures... Oh my!


Holly Jolly! This past week turned out to be a Christmas romance marathon. Between the HoHoHo Readathon (which I sadly had to take a break from for a prior commitment) and the multiple Hallmark Channel movies I watched, it was Christmas non-stop here. And I'm not complaining one bit! Although I would like to read something with a bit more Fall, so if you have any suggestions please leave a comment.

For more information about each movie (including air times), click on the movie posters and you'll be sent to IMDB.

As the weekend continues, Sean realizes that after a lifetime of being the hook-up king, he’s ready to find happily-ever-after with Lotti. But is she ready to open her heart once again? As Christmas sweeps through the little B&B, love and magic are in the air.

It's Christmas in Copper Ridge, and love is waiting to be unwrapped… 

Falling for a bad boy once is forgivable. Twice would just be foolish. When Sabrina Leighton first offered her teenage innocence to gorgeous, tattooed Liam Donnelly, he humiliated her, then left town. The hurt still lingers. But so does that crazy spark. And if they have to work together to set up her family winery's new tasting room by Christmas, why not work him out of her system with a sizzling affair?

Thirteen years ago, Liam's boss at the winery offered him a bribe—leave his teenage daughter alone and get a full ride at college. Convinced he wasn't good enough for Sabrina, Liam took it. Now he's back, as wealthy as sin and with a heart as cold as the Oregon snow. Or so he keeps telling himself. Because the girl he vowed to stay away from has become the only woman he needs, and this Christmas could be just the beginning of a lifetime together…
