Saturday 9: Santa Baby


Santa Baby

Saturday 9: Santa Baby (1987)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) In this song, Madonna refers to Santa as "baby," "honey" and "cutie." What's the most recent endearment someone called you? Sweet Heart, by one of my co-workers. I am no better, I call people Sweet Pea.

2) At the top of her list are a fur coat, a new convertible and a yacht. If you could receive any of those luxury items, which would you choose? A new convertible

3) She would like to decorate her tree with ornaments from Tiffany's. Do you have a favorite holiday ornament or decoration? My ornaments are all special to me in some way. I have handmade ornaments my Granie made... ornaments from online friends and real life friends and also from the kiddos over the years. I try to tell the story of each ornament each year.  Here is a picture of my Hallmark Corgi ornament.  I got this one for my corgi Mandy.

4) "Santa Baby" was written in 1953, before electronic payments. While her wish list includes blank checks, a 2017 survey revealed that 51% of consumers felt check writing was "a pain." Who received the last check your wrote? Who most recently gave you a check? I cannot remember the last check I wrote, but probably paying a bill. My mom probably wrote me a check for a gift or something.

5) Madonna has been a successful singer for decades, and 1985's "Into the Groove" is her top-seller. What's your favorite Madonna song? I like Material Girl, and Vogue. I liked Madonna a lot when I was younger, but not so much anymore.

6) Madonna was born in Bay City, MI, and traveled to New York City to find fame and fortune. When she first arrived, she supported herself by working at Dunkin' Donuts. What's your standard DD order? I am never able to go to Dunkin' Donuts or any other donut place for that matter.

7) The only Christmas card Sam has received so far this year is from her dentist. Have you received many cards this year? I have only received one also from a friend at school. Don't get me started on how no one sends Christmas cards anymore. I think it is sad.

8) Will you wrap many presents? Or do you prefer to use gift bags? I will wrap as many as I can. I like people to get to open a gift wrapped present, but I hate wrapping them.

9) Madonna recorded "Santa Baby" to benefit The Special Olympics
. Here's your chance to plug a cause or organization that's near and dear to you. Convoy of Hope is a local organization that helps out people during natural disasters.  You will see them after hurricanes and tornadoes.  They go all over the world taking food and water to those that need it.  


  1. That corgi is too cute! Just looking at the photo made me smile.

    I love getting cards, too. Even more, I enjoy sending them. My mom put a great deal of care into writing the ones for our family and I try to keep her little traditions alive: "Dear [Name]" on each card and special postage stamp on the envelope.

  2. I enjoyed your answers today.
    Love your adorable Corgi ornament picture, thanks for sharing.
    Have a good Saturday my friend.

  3. That corgi ornament...

    Convoy sounds like a great organization.

  4. I enjoyed your answers, Convoy sounds like a good thing, smiles. Have a beautiful day friend.

  5. I am hoping to wrap my husband's presents this afternoon while he is out of the house. I'm not very good at it, though.

  6. My family still sends out Christmas cards anymore but they are all post cards with a photo of the family with Merry Christmas. I think they have them all printed up with the addresses printed on them already all they do is stick the stamp on them.

  7. Your Corgi ornament is very cute! That seems like a good charity that you support! God bless them and all others who help people in need! This is another fun Saturday 9! I enjoyed your answers!

  8. I love wrapping presents but usually go with gift bags from the Dollar Tree.

  9. Madonna was a lot cooler when we were younger. Convoy of Hope is a great charity! They do such a good thing. Have a great weekend, Lori!

  10. Ah, so sweet the ornaments from friends and family. I have ornaments from my grandmother’s tree, and my childhood tree, as well as ones our kids made. The tree stays up for months around here. It makes me happy, and hurts nothing.
    🎄 Merry Christmas, to you and yours! 🎄

  11. I have several pet ornaments from having 3 dogs. I got Minnie an her mom Rey an ornament for this year. I just need to find a picture for it. I am behind with my cards since I was sick a week. Today is the first full day out of bed. Happy Sunday!
