Holiday Fun!

I wasn't going to post today, but as I was making my daily blog rounds I saw this survey on Peanut Butter Fingers and decided I just had to steal it. It's December 15th which means 10 days til Christmas! Time to get in the spirit!

25 Questions: Holiday Edition! 

1. Egg nog or Hot chocolate?
That's a tough one, I'm going to have to say hot chocolate- even though both would kill my stomach!

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
Santa usually brings the big gifts and he just sets them out!

3. Colored lights or white?
White, without a doubt.

4. Do you hang mistletoe? 
No, but both of our parents do!

5. When do you hang your decorations up?
Usually the weekend after Thanksgiving.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish (not dessert)
Potatoes Au Gratin that my grandma makes, even though I am completely allergic to all the cheese and milk! 

7. Favorite holiday memory as a child?
Dancing with my dance studio every Christmas at the "Festival of the Trees" 

8. What is on your Christmas wish list?
Kitchen Aide mixer and new gym shoes! (Please oh please Santa, I've been really good this year and I really need both of these!!)

9. Do you open gifts on Christmas Eve?
Sometimes... This one is all up to Mom!! B's family opens all their gifts on Christmas Eve though so I get the best of both worlds!

10. How do you decorate your tree?
It's pre-lit so all we have to do is add our ornaments and star on top!

B and I at Zoo Lights!

11. Real tree or fake?
Fake. Makes everyone's lives much easier.

12. Snow. Love it or dread it? 
Love it, but wouldn't want to live in it.

13. Do you remember your favorite gift?
Oh man, I've had so many great gifts over the years... I think I cried when I got my Mac laptop though. 

14. Most important thing about Christmas?
Spending time with family.

15. What is your favorite holiday dessert?
A candy cane usually does the trick :)

16. What is your favorite tradition?
I love Christmas morning! We always wake up really early and have to wait at the top of the stairs so my mom can take a picture... then we get to run down and see what Santa put in our stockings. (Stockings are my favorite!!) 

17. What tops your tree?
A pretty gold star

18. Do you prefer giving or receiving?
Giving, of course. I love the anticipation of a loved one opening a big present!

Ice Skating last Christmas... I found out I'm not very good at it! 

19. Favorite Christmas song?
N*Sync Christmas CD or Jessica Simpson Christmas CD. Don't judge me!

Usually at the mall, but I did get a couple people presents on Cyber Monday this year.

24. Christmas letter or Christmas Card?
We always do Christmas Cards. Here is ours from last year

25. What do you leave for Santa?
Cookies and milk and a letter... he always writes back too! :)

Now your turn! I want to know some of your answers! 


  1. Ah I just watched Elf the other day!! Best movie of all time! Um Backstreet Boys 'Christmas Time" - best song ever.

  2. Really B.... Really? Out of all the desserts in the world you picked a CANDY CANE?!?! And I thought we were friends :(. Lol. Mine would definitely be cheesecake... Yummmm. Our Christmas tradition is getting up reallllyyyy early (4am early) and my three sisters and I would pick a corner of the room, divide out the presents and stack them around us like forts. Once they were all stacked perfectly, we would go watch movies until my parents woke up. :)

  3. You and Big B make the cutest couple!
    How did u guys meet? How long have you guys been dating and when is he gonna put a ring on it?! LOL.

  4. Jovana haha!! I like other desserts like pumpkin pie and chocolate chip cookies but I'm always too full! Your Christmas morning tradition sounds like fun :)

    Whoever posted the Anonymous comment I love you and I'm showing this to B tonight!! haha We met just through mutual friends, we had a million mutual friends and were both in greek life at ASU but somehow didn't meet until he had already graduated and I was in my last semester. We've been dating 2 1/2 years and I have a funny feeling 2012 is going to be a rough year for his wallet ;)

  5. You have a beautiful family little B...I see where you get your good looks from! :)
    Footbaall fan family I see...very cool photo.

  6. Oh my gosh! I am totally stealing this from you!!! SO much fun! Also, your fam is so stinking cute!!! :)

  7. That Christmas card is epic. I'm going to have to steal that idea if I ever send out cards. :)

  8. "19. Favorite Christmas song?
    N*Sync Christmas CD or Jessica Simpson Christmas CD. Don't judge me!"

    Girl, you make me LOL on "Don't judge me!" tehehe

    I love all your posts but this one made me feel all warm and fuzzy!! :-) Loved it!

    Your family is GOR.GE.OUS.
    Absolutely gorgeous.

    I have to completely agree with you on the snow. I love love love watching it fall and love to see a pretty layer of it on the ground and trees, but I don't like for it to stick around very long or make the roads un-drivable (is that a word? lol).
