Holidays

1.  What are you plans for Thanksgiving this year?  This year my husband and I are having Thanksgiving at our house. It will be a small get together with Amelia, my Grandma and my older sister Erica. I'm looking forward to the day!
2. At what point to you begin celebrating the Christmas season? I would love to have already decorated! but I will wait until the day after Thanksgiving. We usually get our tree the weekend after Thanksgiving, but I think I'm gonna ask the husband to put up the lights this weekend. 
3.  Do you celebrate Christmas, or do you celebrate another holiday? Christmas
4.  If you could have one present (you know, a material good, not love or world peace) what would you want?  This is really hard this year! I think I would want a new camera. I love my DSLR, but it has been having some focus issues that are not operator caused. I've been incredibly frustrated with it lately so I'd like a new one... but I can tell you that's not going to happen.
5.  Share an idea or two that you can plan to do for someone who may need to feel loved throughout the holiday season.  Amelia and I have a list of 'Pay it Forward' ideas that we are working on this year (click HERE to see my post on it). 
6.  Would you rather spend the holiday season on the beach or in the snow?  Snow all the way! While I do love the beach... once Fall hits I'd rather be in the mountains. 
7. What is your favorite Thanksgiving food?  My mom and I make this cranberry sauce that is to die for! That and stuffing are my favorite. I'm not a huge turkey fan. 
8.  Will you participate in Black Friday shopping?  Not sure yet. I WILL however be shopping on cyber Monday. There is something so awesome about sitting in my recliner with a cozy blanket, cup of tea and shopping on the computer. I don't even have to get dressed for that. 
9.  Will you travel for the holidays or stay at home?  If you’re traveling, are you flying or driving or making alternate plans?  We will be staying local this year. Thanksgiving will be at our house and Christmas will be at my Grandma's house (15 minutes away). 
10.  List at least 5 things for which you are currently thankful.

  1. My family! That little girl who is my everything, my wonderful husband, my amazing mom and sisters, the perfect Grandma and all of those extended family folks that I adore.
  2. My Faith. I'm so proud to have been raised Catholic... and am glad I get to share that with my daughter. 
  3. Friends... I have a few friends that qualify as #1. I love that I'm surrounded by great people.
  4. A roof over my head, clothes on my body and food to eat. Some people aren't so lucky. 
  5. Crafting! I'm obsessed.

    1. Here in Oregon we get a lot of rainy and nasty days at the beach. I do love watching the storms come in, but I do prefer the snow this time of year.

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I LOVE crafting! I'm an addict... if only I used up all of my supplies instead of just buying more and more :) I'm excited for Thanksgiving, but I really want to decorate for Christmas so I'm ready for it to be here and pass by.

  5. I love cyber Monday! You won't catch me out of the house on black Friday though.

    1. Thanks for stopping by. I've done the black Friday thing several times, but it's become increasingly difficult to get out of the house with my 4yo daughter. My husband usually has to work that day. Cyber Monday is pretty much the best shopping invention ever!!!
