1. What is your winter "must haves"? (Feel free to show off something from Polyvore!)
Well, let me be honest- I don't like winter. I know some people thrive on this time of year, but I surely do not. I love summer and everything about it, so this time of year I cringe. I work in a drive thru at a bank too, where whatever temp it is outside, it is in here. So that doesn't help that I sit all day at work with frozen toes and fingers. It's irritating.
But, let's see. For the sake of the question, my winter must haves are:
-Gloves. (For at work mainly, fingerless gloves so I can still type!)
-Coffee. This one isn't just for winter for me, but I do tend to drink it more throughout the day instead of just in the mornings. Can't go wrong with a cup of coffee with some hazelnut creamer. #yum
-Chili. Chili is one of my favorite things. I love my mom's and for a long time, wouldn't dare try anyone else's, but recently I've discovered other people besides her CAN actually make it to my liking! ;)
-Socks. I know this sounds like a no-brainer, but if you know me at all, you know I hate socks. They annoy me worse than anything else, but in the winter (and working in a freezer basically) I'm forced to like them.
2. What is on your Christmas wishlist this year? (I know this has been asked, but I wanna know!)
-I don't know if mine qualifies as even a list, but I did a post on this a few days ago. You can find it right here. :)
3. What is your favorite holiday coffee/tea/alcoholic beverage?
-Just plain coffee with my hazelnut creamer, or hot chocolate. I love me some good hot chocolate! Which reminds me, I need to buy some more! ;)
4. Top 3 must have holiday desserts?
-Martha Washington candy. My mom has made it every year I've been alive. This won't be any different! ;)
-Pecan Pie. I die, I die, I die. I love a pecan pie and thanks to Pinterest I can now officially say I'm a Pecan Pie Mastermind. ;) Mom wants my recipe. She isn't getting it. She will outdo me. I need my proud moments too! ;) ha!
-Fudge. What about this is there NOT to like? I love chocolate. I love being a fat kid with chocolate. It's bliss. :)
5. What time do you get up to open presents from Santa with your family? Do you clean up right away or do you leave it there in a huge pile until it's the night before trash day?
-Christmas with my family is on Christmas Eve, at my house. This started 4 years ago when I moved into my own home, and it's a tradition I'd like to keep as long as I can. It's special to me that my family gets to come into my own home and I get to play hostess. I don't ever have company, so it's nice to get to entertain! :)
And as far as cleaning up, I do it right away. I'd freakishly OCD about trash. It HAS to go or I'll lose my head!
6. What is your New Years resolution?
-I'm never good with NY Resolutions. I always end up breaking them. So this year I am going with: "I will stick to my goals. Whatever they are, whenever they are." And to elaborate on that, I'm setting a new goal for myself. I'll be just over 9 months from my wedding day to the man of my dreams, so getting in better shape so I can ROCK that dress is on the list. And with that goes my actually exercising and making it a part of my life, not just for a few months. I want to keep a good physical appearance that way when B and I do have a child, maybe my post-birth weight loss will be easier. I am pushing 30 you know, so this will be harder on me than most of you who are popping out beautiful babes early in life!
And another goal is to actually do the reading the Bible front to back in a year. I've got a plan on hand and I'm anxious to start. And I'm tossing around the idea of making this a group thing. Any interests??
I like this coffee talk stuff. I'll be back next week, with my cup of joe in hand! ;)
