** Christmas Connection **

It's Almost CHRISTMAS!! 
Honestly, I wish it was here now.. right now.
Almost though. 

I must say so myself, that I got everyone some PRETTY amazing gifts this year.
I can't wait to share with you all some of my favorites.
Because let me just tell you. they are pretty good.
Yep, everyone in my family is prettttyy luckky this year.

I've really caught myself getting SO excited though.
It's Thursday night now and I am done with that thing called,
Yuck, I know!!
If only now I can get up from this couch, quit looking at my Christmas tree
and get up and PACK. Things would be easier.
But since I still have no motivation,
let me fill you in on my Christmas plans.

Last night was my second Christmas party with friends.
The first one was in the WKY and it was so chill and amazing!
We filled up on Mexican, came back and watched the CATS game and then opened presents.
It's amazing how thoughtful my friends are!
My gifts were wonderful.

Last night got a little {WILD}
Someone,  ME, thought it was a good idea to have it a restaurant.
Not just any restaurant, but the one that has HALF priced bottles of wine.
Yeah.. needless to say to many bottles of vino later....
Anyway, my head still hurts and its 11:00 pm..
WOW. Got to love those girls those and I got some prettttyy amazing jewerly.

NEXT up. Family Christmas starting. umm tomorrow!!

But here are a little answers to some questions..

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Well, the Family has egg nog. My step granny loves it but I always pass.
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Santa wraps at my dads but sits them under the tree at moms. Mom used to tell me that she told Santa that was okay. She didn't want to over work the elves. She's precious!
3. Colored lights on tree/house or white?  White is all we have now. But I remember growing up and my mom always had colored on the tree. We would always decorate the tree together. I miss it now!

4. Do you hang mistletoe? Personally, NO! But my mom does at her house. It's a tradition she started after I turned 16 (I'm the youngest)
5. When do you put your decorations up? After Thanksgiving ALWAYS. Usually after the first week in December or when I can find the time.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish? WOW. I can't even tell you! I love my Mom's homemade dressing. Doesn't matter what meat it is with. I also love Ham. Snacking on it through the next couple days especially.

7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child? WOW! I have so many!!! Seriously. But probably most of all waking up at my moms house and RUNNING into the living room and finding all the gifts laid out for us to find.
 I LOVE my stocking!!
Mom's house this year with all of our stockings!!!

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? I remember I found a receipt for a gift that "Santa" bought me on my mom's desk at home. I demanded the truth!
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Usually I do! My brother and I are usually switching from my dads to my moms on Christmas day. So we usually open everything up on Christmas Eve.
10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree? Growing up my mom always had the sentimental ornaments, that she still has. Love her heart! I go back to childhood as soon as I see her tree every year. I still love walking around her tree and talking about all the ornaments. At my house, I just have red and gold ones. That will change once I have a family and kids though!

11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? I LOVE snow! If it's going to be that COLD I would rather snow be everywhere!! But I kinda like the fact it was 60 today in KY. 

12. Can you ice skate? NO! ... I wish I could. They just opened a new outdoor Ice Skating Rink here in Lex. So I hope to learn! 

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? It changes every year. Seriously! But this year so far my picture blanket from Ali! It is so warm and I feel so loved every time I see it!
14. What’s the most important thing about the Holidays for you?  Spending time with family, laughing and enjoying each others company. Remembering the reason for the season and being thankful for all the blessing. And being lazy at my mom's house. (what I am looking forward to this year)
15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert? Easy, My Nana's coconut pie or my mom's iced sugar cookies!! MMM!! 
16. What is your favorite holiday traditionDriving around looking  at Christmas Lights at my mom's house. We all pile up in the car and ride around all over the city. We listen to Christmas music and my brother always gets car sick. 
17. What tops your tree? A star
18. Which do you prefer: giving or receiving? BOTH! I LOVE giving. I get excited and it's really hard for me not tell people what I got them. Because I am so EXCITED for them to open it. I also love opening gifts and being surprised.
19. Candy Canes: Yuck or Yum? Just okay..

20. Favorite Christmas show? Christmas Vacation (tradition to watch) && Elf! && the Grinch
  21. Saddest Christmas Song? Mariah Carey.. All I want for Christmas is you! Refuse to listen to it now. Personal reasons but pretty much it lost it's meaning.

22. What is your favorite Christmas song?  Wonderful Christmastime or Where are you Christmas?!!

Well I am getting off here!
Maybe I will pack.. but I will probably go to bed!
Be safe!!
