Hello blogger friends! Happy Thursday! At least I think that it’s Thursday. Can’t someone please make it Friday already?
First off, I would like to tell you about a really great giveaway over at the Fitness For Foodies. They are giving away a Nathan hand held water bottle. If you have never heard of them, you should go check them out. They are great. I’ve been using one for about a year now and I’m totally in love with it. They fit very nicely in the palm of your hand and you can pull the strap tight enough that the water bottle doesn’t move. It also has a great little pocket where you can put your keys or a couple of gels.
Next, I was tagged by Molly of I'm A Sleeper Baker to answer some questions about Christmas. So here goes:
Have you started your Christmas shopping?
Yes, I started last Saturday and I’m almost done.
Tell me about one of your special traditions.
We don’t really have any specific special traditions.
Are you a Black Friday Shopper?
I would rather stick a hot poker into my eye and pull it out through my mouth, then to go shopping on Black Friday.
When do you put up your Tree?
We usually put it up the weekend after Thanksgiving. We are a little behind this year. It is up, but not decorated.
Do you Travel at Christmas or Stay home?
Sometimes. My family lives in Missouri and Rick’s family lives in Texas, so we sometimes visit them over the holidays.
What is your funniest Christmas memory?
Can’t really think of one. How pathetic is that?
What is your favorite Christmas Movie of All time?
I can think of a couple of things here! Miracle on 34th Street, It’s a Wonderful Life, and A Christmas Carol
Do you do your own Christmas Baking, what’s your favorite treat?
I hate to bake! I love to cook, but HATE to bake. Plus, the raw dough never makes it to the oven; most of it usually ends up in my stomach.
Fake or Real Tree?
Fake. Rick is allergic to the real trees. I used to get real trees, but they were a pain in the neck. I have a tree that comes in three parts and the lights are already on the tree. I'm lazy.
What day (as a mom) does the actual panic set in to get it all done?
No panic. Why panic?
Are you still wrapping presents on Christmas Eve?
I’m usually still wrapping on Christmas morning. Or just sticking the damn thing in a Wal Mart bag.
What is your favorite family fun time at Christmas?
Driving around looking at Christmas lights.
What Christmas craft do you like the best?
Again, I would rather stick a hot poker through my eye then do any type of craft.
Christmas music. Yes or No, and if yes What is your favorite song?
Depends on what mood I’m in. Santa Claus is Coming To Town! I got the Victoria’s Secret Christmas CD last year, I got it free when I bought a bunch of crap that I didn’t really need. It was pretty good.
When do you plan to finish all your shopping?
When I finally force myself to put my credit card back in my purse.
I'm not going to talk about my training today, I am too tired to talk running. I'll be back. :)
