My mind is filled with Christmas movies, last minute to-do items, and work stuff so I can’t really think of anything new to share. So when I saw this post idea I thought it was a fun way to share some Holiday favorites and traditions.
A holiday tradition: We go to Maine for Christmas By The Sea. My most favorite weekend of the year. Much needed girl time! I also spend the night at my brothers which is fun because I get to see the girls first thing in the morning when they see their gifts.
What I would love to see Santa bring me the most? I am most looking forward to a new power tool. Are you surprised? Yeah I didn’t think so. The project list I have planned with this bad boy is long!
Who is the hardest to shop for during the holidays? My Dad! He doesn’t have a lot of hobbies so he is a hard one.
Favorite winter accessory: I am a scarf queen so I am wearing one on most days. These are from my Christmas Wish List post.
Christmas lights – colored or white? As a kid we always had colored lights. Within the last few years I have tried to switch to a red white and blue theme so this year it was blue and white lights with some red ornaments.
Favorite holiday cocktail: I love a mug of Gluhwein or mulled wine. It just warms you and the alcohol is condensed so it knocks you on your butt with just a glass or two. For the recipe I use click here.
Favorite holiday food: We don’t really go all out for Christmas in terms of food but my Dad does make a ham which is one of my favorites. I might make some magic bars though.
White elephant gift idea: I usually go to the Walgreens section for As Seen on TV gifts. They are genius gifts. One year I did a bear with a nerf gun that you shot into it’s belly, and another year it was an Uncle Si Chia Pet head. Amazon has a list of White Elephant gifts under $20 which has some great ideas. *Not an affiliate link
Funny picture with Santa: I’ll just let you soak in the brown boots and the crushed velvet blue coat with fur trim. My brother is also rocking some mean plaid pants. Oh boy!
Do I like candy canes? Yes. I like the traditional peppermint ones but flavored ones are fun too. I do admit though I haven’t had any this year.
Hot chocolate – marshmallows or no marshmallows? Umm this is New England we add Fluff.
Favorite holiday song: Mariah Carey – All I Want for Christmas is You.
Have I ever been on a sleigh ride? Yes, we just went on a horse drawn sleigh ride while we were in Maine.
Thanks to Jenn for creating the questionnaire.
