Catching Up on Some December Dailies

Dec. 12

Dec. 13

Dec. 14

Dec. 15

No holiday party is complete without: sparkling grape juice

My favorite Christmas song/album: I am quite a fan of "O Holy Night" by Sandi Patti and "Joy to the World" by Mariah Carey

My favorite seasonal recipe: chocolate chip pumpkin cookies

The perfect New Year's Eve outfit includes:  my pajamas

At the parties, I'll be drinking: We enjoy sparkling grape juice out of plastic wine glasses

Eggnog, good or bad? I don't know if I've actually ever HAD eggnog. 

Did you ever take pictures on Santa's lap at the mall? There is actually a picture of me as a child on Santa's lap on our mantel.

Gingerbread Latte or Peppermint Mocha: What about the Caramel Brulee Latte? Starbucks brought that back, didn't they?

Worst gift I ever got: I have no idea.

Best gift I ever received: I get a lot of good things as gifts. Uhm, last year I was kind of obsessed with our popcorn machine.

My family has this weird tradition: We always make a stop at Walgreens to pick up some random ingredient we forgot to buy beforehand.

My best bargain find for a gift this year: We redeemed credit card reward points to get Amazon gift cards and then we used the gift cards to buy people presents.

If I could only buy all my gifts from one place, I'd shop at: Target

Rudolph the Red-nose Reindeer or Frosty the Snowman: Frosty

My favorite holiday memory: putting up the tree

My favorite Christmas movie: White Christmas - so bad it's good!

The best part about holiday decorations is: the lights - I like things that twinkle

Rip off the wrapping paper or neatly pull off the tape: rip it off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Miracle on 34th Street or It's a Wonderful Life: Miracle on 34th Street, although it bothers me that Natalie Wood's character is supposed to be so smart and advanced at her "progressive school" and yet in the letter that she writes to Kris Kringle, her handwriting is ATROCIOUS and she can't even spell the word "believe" correctly. OKAY??

It doesn't feel like the holiday season until: I start wrapping those presents and watching the Christmas movies.

All I want for Christmas is: scrapbook supplies and clothes


  1. Your 'all i want for christmas' response sounds IDENTICAL to me! That's all I want every year lol

  2. Hehe, I like to just rip it off, too - can't stand when people are so neat about it lol!

  3. Totally having a hard time staying up to date with DD photos! Your look great!
