My Most Played K-Pop Songs In 2016

I recently have been watching videos from JREKML  where they post reactions to k-pop videos and top favorites. JRE put up his top 16 k-pop songs of 2016, all of them new releases from 2016. I thought I'd piggyback off of his post and post my own top 10 songs of 2016. But mine doesn't include new releases because I got into k-pop hardcore so I'm still discovering new music.

Here's the most played k-pop on my spotify (in no particular order):

1. Red Velvet- Dumb Dumb 

2. Red Velvet- Happiness

3. Girls Generation (SNSD)- Lion Heart 

4. BlackPink- Whistle 

5. BlackPink- Boombayah 

6. Big Bang- Bang Bang Bang 

9. Akadong Musician- 200% 

10. Seventeen- Pretty U

Must Watch Christmas Movies for Our Family

So now that Jayse is old enough (2 years and too smart for his own good) to understand what happens in some movies, I've been looking more into Christmas movies for the holiday season especially since I have a whole week off with him (yay being a teacher!) to have fun, bake, do crafts, and watch movies. As I was looking for movies to watch with him, I realized that we have a long list of movies we watch as a family, ones that my sister and I watch religiously every year, and ones that I just watch with my husband.
