Monday, December 12, 2011

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper, definitely.

2. Real tree or Artificial? I've had a real tree my whole life. So grateful I'm not allergic.

3. When do you put up the tree? Usually the day after Thanksgiving.

4. When do you take the tree down? A day or two after Christmas.

5. Do you like eggnog? Not really sure...

6. Favorite gift received as a child? B*Witched cd {still listen to it...} or the matching make up sets my sister and I got.

7. Do you have a nativity scene? Not my own, unfortunately. Wish I would have bought one in Salzburg.

8. Hardest person to buy for? Dad. I feel like I only buy him books...

9. Easiest person to buy for? Levi. That kid is easy to please.

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? MAIL. Nothing as charming as snail mail.

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? According to my mom, it was the afore-mentioned B*Witched cd. She hates Rev It Up to this day.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? The Family Stone or Home Alone. We watch them a few times every Christmas break.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Two weeks before Christmas. Lovely, I know.

14. Ever recycled a Christmas present? Hmm...yes, probably.

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Breakfast, which is usually homemade egg mcmuffins.

16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? Depends on the decorations. My mom's pink decorated tree has white lights.

17. Favorite Christmas song? Baby, It's Cold Outside; Oh Holy Night; Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Stay home. I love cozying down into the familiarity of everything I know.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? Of course.

20. Angel on the tree top or a star? I think we usually have an angel, but I love stars.

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? One present on Christmas Eve, but all the others in the morning.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? Stress. There should be no stress, it's such a happy time.

23. Favorite ornament, theme, or color? I love my mom's tree -- pink, white, and silver. It's magical.

24. What do you want for Christmas this year? Check out the pinterest board...
