11 Answers to 11 Questions

  1. What would your dream vacation be?  probably taking the girls to Ireland or Europe when they are older and can appreciate it
  2. If you could go anywhere for a week without the kids where would it be? we just did it haha we just spent 10 beautiful days in Alaska!
  3. What is your favorite "me" time indulgence?  probably getting my nails done, I have to put my phone down and just zone out
  4. What was your favorite subject in High School? English, which is why I enjoy doing my blog so much
  5. What is your favorite dessert?  That's a tie between Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream and Red Velvet cake (YUM!)
  6. If someone handed your $5,000 with no strings attached what would you do with it?  Probably split it in 1/3's with 2 of those 1/3's going into the girls separate savings accounts then take the last 1/3 and use it for me and hubby to enjoy and I might even take a portion and donate it...karma will come back around
  7. Have you started Christmas shopping yet? No! I hate Christmas shopping, I never know what to get anyone but I should get started.
  8. Do you shop on Black Friday? If not, why? No...well only online but even that's risky because so many people are doing it your computer can crash, I just can't stand the crowds
  9. What's your favorite Thanksgiving dish? Turkey...who doesn't love Turkey on Thanksgiving?
  10. What's your families favorite Christmas tradition?  I think we are actually starting that this year.  For the past 2 years we have been traveling to be with family but this year since Hannah is old enough to get the concept of Christmas I want us to be home.  I want to get everyone comfy PJ's, read a book on Christmas Eve, and watch "A Christmas Story" like I did when I was a kid then on Christmas morning have a good breakfast with opening gifts and a fire in the fireplace!
  11. Have you decided what you will be for Halloween? If not dressing up will you hand out candy?  We will probably do both!  Since Savannah's birthday is about 2 weeks before Halloween and her party is a Cowgirl theme we will probably use the same outfits/costumes for that then go trick-or-treating early and come home and give out candy, Hannah will enjoy giving out candy on the porch.
