Wednesday... & I have a Dancing with the Stars hangover...
Worth it though... GO MELISSA! 
I was just glad Kelly didnt win
... I get grumpy when I have a TV hangover & the person I dont care for wins the whole thing

1.  Which do you prefer-pretty gift wrap with a bow or a pretty gift bag with/without a bow? What percentage of your holiday gifts are currently (as in right this very minute) wrapped in some form or fashion?

I like pretty wrapping... I just wish I could do it.

My wrapping starts out as wrapping, but the closer it gets to Christmas, the more I break out the bags & say, "Screw it"
... or I put things in bags that I cant find boxes for.
I refuse to wrap something if its a weird shape & not in a box.
It never turns out pretty.

Right now - my wrapping?  0% finished.
I'm going to have a wrapping party Saturday while the Hubs is at work.
& by party, I mean me dodging around dogs laying around my feet.

2. What is one item on your Christmas list this year?

To lose 25 lbs...
What?  Christmas miracles can happen - right?
Santa can do anything - RIGHT?

Honestly - I dont even have a list.  I havent given much though to what I want this year.  I'm blessed... have everything I need already.

That being said - I really want/NEED new running shoes, but know its not something anyone can go pick out for me. 
But Christmas miracles can happen - right?
Santa can do anything- RIGHT?

3.  What makes a home?

4 walls, a door & a roof
...that was an easy one...

4.  Motown founder Berry Gordy celebrates his birthday today...are you a fan of the Motown sound? If so who's your favorite Motown artist and/or song? Here's a list in case you're stuck

If its not Rap, I like it.... (Notice I didnt say COUNTRY?... you can thank the show Nashville for that)

I love all things Supreme... Diana Ross - the original Diva
Love all things Jackson 5... when Michael Jackson could get away with acting like a kid

But did anyone see #59 on the list... Lionel Richie "All Night Long"... isnt that an 80's song?  How is that on Motown list? I call "Motown Fail" on that!

But give props that #41 is "Super Freak" from Rick James!

5. Red or green...which one is more prevalent in your closet?
Both... I actually have a lot.. I mean A LOT...of green shirts/sweaters

But I do love red accessories.  Purses, shoes, scarves... I love red touches.

I blame Stacy & Clinton from "What Not to Wear"

6.  True or false-bacon makes it better? If you answered true, what's your favorite dish made with bacon?

This is why I dont eat meat...

I actually started not eating pork first... why?  Because I saw a momma pig with her babies at the fair... & it was precious & sweet & my heart melted... I cant look at bacon the same now

7. Share a favorite holiday memory.
Which to pick?  So many great ones...

I think my favorite memories now are the memories of Christmas's spent with loved ones that have passed away... grandparents... friends...

When someone leaves this world, you appreciate the special moments of Holidays that you got to spend with them... makes those Holidays precious...

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I'm so excited on the stocking I found for Ricky this year...
Yep - that there is a KISS Paul Stanley stocking! :)
Next to my Belle stocking.... that picture right there describes the two of us perfectly :)


  1. I'll say it, again...those stockings are the cutest things I believe I've ever seen! I couldn't agree more with your answer for #7. Oh, my goodness...after seeing that little piggy picture, I might have to give up eating bacon, too! We saw pigs at the fair...I never realized how adorable they are! Have a Happy Wednesday, my friend!

  2. I thought the same thing about Lionel Ritchie and Motown. Who knew? But Rick James' Superfreak is a classic. We used to roller skate to that, at the roller rink with all the lights and big hair and 80s stuff ;)

  3. Love your answer to #7.

    And I just love that picture of your stockings!!!

  4. Love the little pig in the cowboy suit, but it doesn't stop me from eating bacon! haha

    Cute stockings!

  5. The memories of the people who are no longer here are always more precious.

  6. I didn't begin as a vegetarian. As year progressed I would look at something on my plate and envision it as a baby. Totally turns my stomach.
    I'm not a true vegetarian though, I will eat a small amount of meat, if I can get past the 'baby' mental faze.

  7. I am dying at those two stockings because you two are SO opposite it's not even funny, but it sooooo works, lol!!!! :)

  8. I love the stockings. teehee.

    I didn't know we could ask for weight loss...I will be making some changes to my list now : )

  9. I roo was happy to see Melissa win DWTS last night! And, I felt the same way about Kelly ...and syrupy Val. She rarely smiled and he couldn't keep himself off of her. Gross! It was too much.

  10. If you lived closer, I'd come help you wrap. I love to wrap, but we don't exchange gifts. My son will receive a few from us, but those always go in his Snoopy gift bags, we've been using those for about 15 years...over and over and over.


  11. On the rare occasions that I have played trivia games, every music answer for me is Diana Ross and the Supremes or Hall and Oats.....pretty evident I am not a huge music person.

    It's gift bags all the way for me! I cannot wrap and anyone who knows me, knows that. I once gave my sister a gift in a white box and wrote "pretend this is wrapped pretty, that's what I did!"

  12. That picture of the piglet is too cute! But I still like bacon. lol

  13. RIGHT! Santa CAN do anything! That's my story and I'm sticking to it. (At least til Christmas morning. :P) #3 made me laugh. And yes, those memories with loved ones long gone become so very precious now. And those stockings! Too cute! :)

  14. Those stockings are Awesome!!
    I love music and grew up listening to Country but also enjoyed other genres. I live about an hour away from Nashville and Love the new show "Nashville"!!
