Fall Playlist

I love, love, love a good playlist. I have them saved in my phone for everything, for holidays, showering, cleaning, drinking on the patio, dance parties for the kids, everything! And one of my favorites, is always my Fall playlist. I know things are super slow around here lately, and I so hope to be posting more frequently again one of these days. But for now, I’m sharing a few of my favorite jams of the season & hope these songs give you lots of cozy Fall vibes like they do for me.

Have a favorite? Be sure to share!
Happy Tuesday loves! XO

It’s Just a Bunch of Hocus Pocus

Happy Halloween Eve!!
 
So many exciting things happening over here, getting our Halloween party set up ready, baking goodies & putting the finishing touches on our costumes while Harper is upstairs snoozing… “while visions of Sanderson sisters dance in her head.” 
Ladies & Gentleman. Ghouls & Boys. It’s time for a little Hocus Pocus Drinking game action! Sadly, I cannot partake this year, but I hope that you will carry on without me! ๐Ÿ˜‰
“ANOTHER GLORIOUS DRINKING GAME”

The Garvin Family Official Hocus Pocus Drinking Game

What you will need for this game: an excessive amount of beer & a witch hat
 
Take One Drink Every Time:
  • Winifred calls for her “Boooooook”
  • Mary smells a child
  • Sarah says something stupid
  • Dani cries or whines about something
  • Billy Butcherson loses a limb
  • Thackary Binx loses a life
  • The witches fly on their brooms… or mops or vacuum cleaner

Additional Rules:

The entire group must all drink a full beer during the “I Put a Spell on You” performance.
 
Anytime someone in the group starts to chug their beer, everyone must chime in saying “amok! amok! amok!” Last one to catch on has to take a drink.
If anyone says Zachary Binx instead of Thackary Binx, they are automatically beer bitch for the entire game.
“Damn, Damn, Double Damn” is the only curse word allowed during the game. If anyone says anything else, you have to take a drink.
 
First person to spot the Christmas Vacation house that is in the background during one scene of the movie gets to give three drinks. (Mind blown? I know, mine was too. Read more here.)
 
Anytime someone misquotes a line in the movie, they have to wear the witch hat until it gets passed to the next person. When the movie is over, the last person wearing the witch hat has to shotgun a beer & finish by saying “Makes me Sick!
 

If you are watching this movie on VHS, you are a badass, but you also must chug a beer while you rewind the movie at the end. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think it’s safe to say that this might be Harper’s reaction to me craving a beer so badly & watching Hocus Pocus empty handed this year. She knows there is a very good chance I will be up at the crack of dawn making her a festive breakfast instead of trying to sleep in with a witch of a hangover! ๐Ÿ˜‰
Hope you all have the BEST Halloween tomorrow!!!

Christmas Vacation Drinking Game

Ladies & Gentleman, today is Christmas in July!
In the spirit of this festive occasion, I am so excited to share a Garvin Family Tradition with you today. I’ve mentioned before that we love making up drinking games to our favorite movies & this is the drinking game of all drinking games! We made this up in college & have been adding to it ever since.
It’s time to celebrate Christmas in July like a Garvin Griswold.
Christmas Drinking Games
“JOY TO THE ‘WOLD!”

The Garvin Family Official Christmas Vacation Drinking Game

What you will need for this game: an excessive amount of beer, a Santa hat & a single shot of your choice (preferably a lime jello shot topped with cat food).
Take One Drink Every Time:
  • Ellen calls Clark “Sparky”
  • Someone is wearing an ugly holiday sweater
  • Clark does something awkward
  • There is singing or music
  • The swimming pool is referenced
  • Clark is wearing a sports team article of clothing, unless of course, you are wearing a Chicago Blackhawks jersey, then that means you are a complete badass & you get to give drinks at each of those parts.

Additional Rules:

The entire group takes a drink whenever an advent calendar door is opened.
You must yell โ€œShitterโ€™s Full!โ€ any time you leave to use the restroom, otherwise you must finish your beer when you return.
First person to say โ€œGet me somebody! And get me somebody while I’m waiting!โ€ when Frank Shirley appears on screen for the first time chooses a person to finish their drink.
First person to stand up & fully complete the โ€œknock on the door, peek inโ€ฆโ€ correctly WITH hand gestures during that scene gives two drinks.
At any point in the movie, you can point to someone & yell “RUS!” If they do not respond with “Right here, dad” they must take a drink (max once per person, this could get excessive).
Anytime someone misquotes a line in the movie, they have to wear the Santa hat until it gets passed to the next person. When the movie is over, the last person wearing the Santa hat has to shotgun a beer & finish by saying โ€œAhh, Itโ€™s good, Itโ€™s good. Itโ€™s good.โ€
Whoever ISNโ€™T up for watching Home Alone immediately after the movie ends has to take the SHOT!
Please Note: The game is best enjoyed while wearing bathrobes, fur trapper hats & smoking cigars. EMBRACE YOUR INNER GRISWOLD!
Now rally up your friends, family or even Todd & Margo this evening & get your drink on! ๐Ÿ™‚

Merry Christmas in July!
