Holiday Themed Q & A

Happy Monday friends! I love a good Q&A session...getting to know other people and sharing a little bit more about myself are some of my favorite things, especially in blog land.

Today I'm linking up with Andrea and the ladies of The Blended Blog for some holiday themed fun.

1. Real or Fake Tree?
While I love all the nostalgia and act of picking out a real tree, the mess has deterred me the past few years. So I'm going with fake...for now ;)

2. Favorite Christmas Cookie? 
My Mom's Italian Ricotta Cheese Cookies...if you've never tried this Italian goodness you are really missing out! It sound crazy adding ricotta cheese to a cookie, but it's the best thing you will taste this holiday season.

3. Home on Christmas Morning or Travel?
Home for sure. We travel on Christmas Eve and usually later on Christmas Day, but the memories are made in our home on Christmas morning. I love taking it easy and letting Ethan open his presents and hanging out together with our little family before joining the rest of the family for activities later in the day.

4. Clear or Colored Lights?
Clear lights scream classic Christmas to me, although I did add colored to one tree this year. I love clear lights the most.

5. Send Christmas Cards?
Yes, yes yes! It's one of the most daunting but at the same time, fun things to do!

6. Favorite Christmas Present Received?
I'm bad at questions like this, but any of the bags Charlie has bought me- he has great taste for things like that. Also, Ethan got me this snowman in a cupcake ceramic piece at one of his Christmas shops at school and I absolutely love it because it's so me.

7. Favorite Christmas Present Given?
The year we surprised Ethan with the Disney Cruise to the Bahamas was absolutely the best. I think Chuck and I were hyped for months on end, and Ethan was a little confused when he was opening clues and got the phone call from Mickey. Once we showed him pictures online and realized he would get to live out his dream of swimming with dolphins, he was over the moon! It was the best feeling in the world :)

8. Stockings or No Stockings?
Stockings for sure! Some of my favorite Christmas shopping is finding fun stuff to put in the stockings and love them for the whole family.

9. Christmas PJ's?
Yes! I always got Ethan some through the years, although he isn't in to it anymore. He sleeps in Nike shorts, so until they start making themed ones...he's out. But, it will be fun to start the tradition with Bella again.

10. Favorite Christmas Carol?
I have always adored Little Drummer good :)

11. Favorite Holiday Tradition?
There's so many- but driving around to see Christmas lights with the family is my top one and finishing up Christmas shopping and grabbing a gingerbread martini from the Outback with Charlie is another good time.

12. Early Shopper or Last Minute?
Typically I'm the early shopper...I pick up things year round and am pretty much all done by the time December hits, but not this year. I think I have a good excuse though ;)

13. Favorite Christmas Movie or Show?
Home Alone, hands down! My brother and I used to watch it every day after school when we were younger, so much we wore out the VHS tape and recited every line. I love it so much!

14. Favorite Holiday Beverage?
That gingerbread martini from Outback Steakhouse is my favorite-so good! I need to get the recipe and make them at home, although that could be dangerous.

15. Cookies and Milk for Santa?
Of course, how else is he going to get fuel to deliver all those presents?!

Answer one question in the comments for me- I want to know your favorite holiday drink or movie, or any of the above ;) Happy Holidays -have a great week!
