Cannot remember name of movie?

I cannot remember the name of the movie or the name of the actress. But I can tell you the plot. It was a Hallmark or Lifetime movie, I think.It was a christmas movie. It was about this woman(she sort of looks like Connie Sellica) you know black hair, thin, and late 30's(at time of movie). She worked very hard in a big department store. Her and a friend made out some sort of Santa wish list and for the fun of it, they put it in the santa wishlist box. Then starting the very next day, she was getting all of the things she asked in the list. She split a raffle ticket with this like 10 year old kid, and they end up winning it(a car). Then she gets a promotion at work, then she wins this whole new wardrobe, and so on and so forth. Course during this the 10 year olds father and her start to like each other. So as it goes with that lfetime/hallmark type movie.

Please if this rings a bell I would love to see it again this season.

    The Christmas List (TV 1997) Fantasy ,.

    Director: Charles Jarrott Writer: Marie Weiss Stars:Mimi Rogers, Rob Stewart and Stella Stevens

    The story follows the life of the 35-year-old Melody Parris (Played by Mimi Rogers), a skilled perfume girl, who is living a somewhat flavorless life in Seattle, with a pompous, pushy boyfriend named George and an overbearing mother who lives right next door to her, who is obsessed with her getting married. It starts with another unsatisfactory day at work for Melody, but on the bus, her best friend Naomi tells her to make a Christmas list for selfish fun. She starts to but receives a call from George, who is on a flight home from a business trip. During a talk with her mother that evening, she asks her if they could try to make their Christmas "Dickens-Style"; however her mother is reluctant to do this. Another neighbor's daughter, Amber Mottola, is a supermodel, and her mother harps on how Melody's sister is married, and so Melody storms out, saying that she's sorry she's not anything that makes her mother proud, missing her mother saying that she is proud.

    The next day at work, Melody is passed over for a promotion to the head of the perfume department at the department store where she works for a younger, less skilled co-worker, April May, who's main objective is to sell, not to serve. Melody finally decides to finish her Christmas list, and the next day, she takes it to work and (after some playfullness with Naomi) Naomi puts it in Santa's Mailbox at the department store. Then, things begin to change. She meets Danny Skylar, a boy who wants to buy a perfume that was similar to the smell of his late mother, and when he can't pay the full amount, Melody loans him the rest, and he puts her name, along with his, on the entry form in a sweepstakes at the store to win a new car.

    Danny drags his father to attend the drawing for the car, and his father is surprised when Danny and Melody win. Melody gets into trouble because store employees cannot enter drawings, but Danny explains the mixup and pledges to give her the car until he can drive. Melody is attracted to Danny's father, Dr. David Skylar, and while she gives them the car, her boyfriend intervenes and they work out a schedule so that they can share the car, which offers opportunities for Melody and Dr. Skylar to start to share a close bond. That same night, a tree appears in Melody's apartment, and Melody's mother changes as well, becoming more maternal and says that the whole family is going to be celebrating Christmas Dickens-style.

    When Danny goes to make another payment on the perfume, he asks Melody to go to lunch with him, and George comes as well. However, at lunch Melody and George argue, resulting in Melody pouring a bowl of Creme Brulee onto George's lap. A woman named Faith (Marla Maples) is dating Dr. Skylar and wants to eliminate any competition, so she fakes her engagement to Dr. Skylar, buying a fake ring and bragging to Melody. Upset, Melody gives the car to the Skylars to keep. When George proposes clumsily, Melody declines, and when they start to fight, Melody's mother recoils at George, and we find out she put the tree in Melody's apartment, and acted the way she did because she wanted for her daughter to know that she was proud of her. David finds out about Faith's treachery and dumps her. He and Danny drive to Melody's apartment building where David proposes and Melody accepts, much to Danny's delight and approval,.
