This is a meme from Roots & Rings and I was inspired to do it via Allison. I’ve been getting the urge to blog more lately so I’m trying to take the first steps toward that goal. Probably blogging will be in my New Years resolutions again, like it was last year. Anyway, I digress. On to the questions!
1. What are 3 things that are on your Christmas wish list?
A KitchenAid Artisan Mixer (5 qt) was my main wish, and I have actually received it already from my mom (thanks Mom!). I am so excited to make stuff with it! Not sure about anything else I really wanted.
2. What’s your favorite Christmas song?
Um, not sure I have a favorite. In general I usually find Christmas music annoying, but that’s because it’s played everywhere and nonstop during this season. I have nothing against the music itself, just the repetitiveness of it’s airtime.
3. Do you have a favorite band or singer that sings it especially awesome?
5. What are 3 books you want to read?
The Hunger Games, I’ve heard such good things about this one and there’s a movie coming out soon; Girl with a Dragon Tattoo, I’ve seen the Swedish films and loved them so the books are now on my to-read list; the rest of the Kushiel’s Legacy series, which is one of my favorite fantasy series but the books are so long I haven’t read them all yet.
6. Do you hunt deer?
7. Have you started Christmas shopping? Are you completely finished?
Yes, and I’m not done yet. Some people are so difficult to buy for!
8. Did you shop on Black Friday? What was the best deal you got?
I did, I went to Macy’s at midnight with two friends and it was actually quite a bit of fun! Best deal I got was on a bed set that was originally $400+ dollars. It’s part of the Martha Stewart collection and I fell in love with the metallic grey damask pattern of it. It came with everything, too! Comforter, sheets, decorative pillows, shams, even matching curtains! And the best part was I only paid $150!
9. What’s one holiday tradition your family has?
When I lived at home, we’d split Christmas Eve/Day up between my dad’s & mom’s side of the family. My dad’s side got Eve, so we’d drive upstate and see my paternal grandparents, aunt, uncle, and cousins. My step-grandma would make dinner, too. For Christmas Day my aunt (my mom’s sister) would throw a big party for extended family and her friends so that’s where we’d go after opening presents at home in the morning.
10. How many blogs do you read? Do you subscribe/unsubscribe often or do you purge every once in a while?
Too many, I have them sorted by categories in Google Reader. I purge every so often.
