Finish the Sentence - Christmas Edition

Happy Thursday everyone! I'm only 6 school days away from Christmas Break! Hallu - freaking - llujiah. It's already complete & utter chaos around here. Thus, I'm grateful that Jake & Holly are back with another edition of Finish the Sentence. That's just about all my mind can handle today...

1. My favorite Christmas was.... last Christmas. Everyone says that Christmas is more fun with a kid. They're totally right. It's definitely more expensive & slightly more stressful - but seeing her open gifts, even though she was basically only interested in eating the wrapping paper, made my entire year. I cannot wait to see her in action this year! 

2. The worst Christmas I had... was the Christmas Eric & I spent apart. "We were on a break." It only lasted a month, we got back together on New Year's & were engaged 6 weeks later, but it makes me sad knowing I missed a Christmas with him. 

3. That one gift that made me scratch my head and say, "Hmmmm" was... anything from my mother - in - law. She finds the weirdest stuff. For instance, footy pajamas (last year), head massager that looks like it could poke your eye out (2 years ago), and a table cloth the year that I was still living in a dorm. I just roll with it... 

4. One year I.... spent Christmas day with my family then promptly headed to the airport with Eric. We boarded a plane to Miami & spent the next 10 days with his uncle. It was amazing! Sadly, Uncle Jeff lives in snowy New York again... 

5. I think the worst gift to give is.... anything from Bath & Body Works. I worked there during college & I can assure you that anyone who is in there purchasing a gift basket is doing so because they have absolutely no idea what to get the person. It's totally impersonal & rarely used. Just get a gift card to a restaurant instead - everyone loves to eat! 

6. At Christmastime I typically.... gain 5 pounds from fudge, cookies, and oreo balls. Oh... and booze.  

7. Typically, family Christmas.... is my favorite. Our family Christmas consists of my immediate family & my Aunt Babs' immediate family. I adore my Aunt Babs & her family too. So it's one of my favorite days of the year.

8. If I could change one thing about the Holiday season.... I'd have a treadmill & wifi at my parents' house. I'd feel a lot less guilty about all of the crap food I was eating if I could at least run it off. And a house without wifi - absolute torture. My cell service sucks too, so I'll pretty much be MIA whenever I'm there. 

9. It is so hard to buy for.... my mother. She buys herself whatever she wants, whenever she wants. Apparently that's the joy of having an empty nest - you get to spend your money on yourself. 

10. My favorite Christmas tradition is... singing! I love to sing Christmas Carols. 

11. Santa, baby, bring me a .... new pair of Hunter wellies, a designer handbag, and the whole J.Crew holiday catalog. Oh, and world peace... 



  1. "we were on a break" love it. and no wi-fi?? miserable...thanks for linking with us!

  2. I completely agree on the Bath and Body Works stuff. I also worked there one year seasonally. Everything is so over prices, and the sales are really not that great.
