Happy Friday Eve sweetums. We are on the downhill side of the week, thank goodness, and I, for one, am SO happy that tomorrow is finally Friday again. After having short weeks for the past 2 weeks due to our grandson being born and then Thanksgiving, it has been tough having to work a full week again - ha ha ha
Anyway, I was trolling around some of my favorite blogs and stopped by to see what Jenn over at Going the Distance had up her sleeve today and she decided to do a Holiday Questionnaire and invited us to all play along. Since I love any and all things related to questionnaires because I always enjoy learning about other people, I thought I would join in on the fun too! Feel free to snag her questions below and play along too! :)
A holiday tradition: Since we've moved to the Houston area, it has just been my husband, myself and our son. So we always have our Christmas dinner when my son is going to be home from work, whether that be Christmas Eve or Christmas night. Either way, once we have had dinner, exchanged gifts, we always take off to one of our favorite neighborhoods and drive through looking at their lights.
What you'd love to see Santa bring you most this year: Well, he's already brought me a new car, so I'm not sure what else I could really want/need, but I would love to see a monogram necklace, some monogram earrings, scarves, CC beanie hats, massage package just to name a few.
What's your go-to stocking stuffer item: When I am buying for my men's stockings, it usually consists of their favorite candy/treat, their favorite deodorant, cologne, gift card to their favorite store, etc.
Who is the hardest to shop for during the holidays? Probably my husband. Since we live out of state we always send gift cards to the rest of the family, he and my son are really the only ones I truly buy for. My son always has a list for me, so he's easy.
Favorite Winter Accessory: Scarves, vests, boots and CC Beanie hats are my all-time faves
Christmas Tree lights: colors or all white? Definitely all white - it just looks so much nicer to me, though I love looking at other people's trees who do the color lights - they always look so nice too
Favorite Holiday Cocktail: Hmmm... I guess this would be wine or spiked egg nog :)
Favorite holiday food: Any and all homemade candy, pretzels, etc. I usually make homemade chocolate chip cookies and red velvet cake balls - yum
Do you have a good white-elephant gift idea? Not really, but when we still lived back home, us and our other 3 sets of friends had a White-Elephant party every year and ended up doing a lot of gag gifts that got recycled year after year - it was a blast and something I miss terribly
Do you have a funny picture of you and Santa as a kid? (Post it if you do!) Unfortunately, I do not but always enjoy seeing everyone's kid's pictures - especially the ones who are screaming to get away from Santa - actually, like this one of my nephew this year:
Hot Chocolate....marshmallows or no marshmallows? DEFINITELY marshmellows and the more the better
Favorite holiday song: Baby, It's Cold Outside - and my favorite versions are the one sung by Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson as well as the one from Glee - I LOVE that. Oh, and I want a Hippopatamus for Christmas
Favorite holiday movie(s): Hands down my favorites for the holidays. It just doesn't feel like Christmas until I have broken these babies out:
A funny holiday story: Hmmm... I can't really recall any off the top of my head at the moment
Have you ever been on a sleigh ride? No, but this is something on my bucket list
A fun holiday memory: Cutting down our own Christmas tree every year in the woods behind our house when I was growing up. I miss those days and remember how much fun it was to do that with the family
Well, there you have it - my answers to the fun little questionnaire. Feel free to play along and let me know if you snagged the questions so I can come learn about you too! :)
