Christmas Survey All About ME!!

I'm done with my shopping, baking & cleaning!!!!! I had to wake myself up, I was in fantasy land there for a second!!! I've got so much to do, but it's my Christmas Break & I just want to ... well... do nothing! But while I'm sitting here, I thought I might as well fill out the Christmas Survey that has been floating around that several bloggers have completed, including Kristin over at A Teeny Tiny Teacher. If you continue to read my survey, you will notice that on #24 I really didn't have an answer, because she already gave me my Christmas wish! Okay, now to a survey all about me!!! How fun!!
  1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Both. If I’m wrapping a gift for my hubby, it is definitely wrapped. Although I must confess, it is more for me, because I usually forget what’s in them and I’m almost as surprised as he is when he opens them. For anyone else it is usually in a gift bag.
  2. Real tree or artificial? Artificial. I love the smell of a freshly cut pine tree, but it does weird things to my body.
  3. When do you put up the tree? Usually the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd weekend in December. It basically depends on when my husband decides to get everything out of the attic. Last year, I decided to keep all the stuff in our spare bedroom, so this year it was up the weekend of Thanksgiving! 
  4. When do you take the tree down?  No rules about that at our house. I’m the one that takes it all down. Maybe this year, I’ll leave it up until my husband decides to help. Probably not!
  5. Do you like eggnog? Absolutely! But when I drink it and I start to think about the word “egg” it bothers me a lot. Are they raw?   Never mind, I don’t want to know, because if the eggs are raw...I will definitely stop drinking eggnog...just like raw cookie dough, cake mixes, etc. I don’t wanta know so don’t leave any remarks about it...because I’m not going to read them!!!
  6. Favorite gift received as a childA Chatty Cathy. I loved that doll! I miss her so much. I wonder what happened to her???
  7. Do you have a nativity scene? Nope. I refuse to get one until I get the one that I really want- Precious Moments...Probably never going to happen. 
  8. Hardest person to buy for? That would be anyone I'm buying for that isn't my husband.
  9. Easiest person to buy forDefinitely my husband. All year long he tells me “that would be nice for Christmas” – I wish I could remember some of the stuff he wanted...hmmmm
  10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Neither, I really do have good intentions every single year. I have the cutest Christmas cards that I must have bought...hmmm. I don’t know about 5 years ago. Every year I get them out, but never get around to sending. As a matter fact, they are on my table, within reach...but it's probably too late to send them out now!!! I suppose I'll just have to call everyone!
  11. Worst gift you ever received?  I'm sure I've received my fair share, but nothing comes to mind right now.
  12. Favorite Christmas movie? Christmas Story (for sentimental reasons).
  13. When do you start shopping for ChristmasAll year long - I'm definitely a bargain shopper!
  14. Ever recycled a present?  Absolutely not! Sorta, if you want to include white elephant gifts. But I do recycle the gift bags...which can get you into trouble, especially if you give it to a secret pal and the name tag is still on it. What was I thinking????
  15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?  Divinity – never make it except for at Christmas (I don't have a clue why that is)
  16. Clear lights or colored lights on a tree?  Both 
  17. Favorite Christmas song?  Silent Night
  18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Home – usually... This year we are traveling to a nieces house (although deep down we both want to stay home)
  19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? Of course!
  20. Angel or star on top of the tree?  Angel. My grandmother made it for me... I’m sure it will always be at the top of our tree.
  21. Open the presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?  Christmas Day
  22. Most annoying thing about this time of year?  Being bullied Giving $$$ or food to people that have been naughty all year!!!!
  23. Favorite ornament, theme, or color?  My favorite ornaments are on my “special” Oklahoma State Christmas Tree. I decorate it with all OSU ornaments. Can’t pick just one. They all rock!
  24. What do you want for Christmas? I really don’t care. In fact 2 years ago, we didn’t even exchange, we just drew pictures of what we would have given each other if we would have bought something. Seriously!


  1. Hey! Chatty Cathy was my favourite gift, too and I STILL HAVE HER!! But she doesn't work and she's missing her panties and one shoe -- ha ha.
    Merry Christmas!

  2. I know what your worst gift was...a certain secret pal...and no it wasn't ME!!!

  3. Love your survey! And loving the fact that you are following me! Yay! Hope you have a wonderful holiday! :)

  4. @Barbara - I'm so jealous that you have your Chatty Cathy!!!!
    @Klinger Cafe' - I have NO idea what you are talking about (it must have been so horrible that I've blocked it from my memory!!!)
    @Betsey - You are so sweet!

  5. I totally agree with you about the tree! Growing up we ALWAYS had a real tree, but I think that is part of the reason we all have such bad allergies now! :)

  6. Dear Delighted -

    Thanks for stopping by the Corner this morning - I'm certain that my caramel corn is NOT as good as your cashew delight that Tammy has made me long for . . . here's a deal for you. You send me a sample of that sweet treat and I'll send you a batch of peanut butter balls! Just sayin' . . . oh, and I cannot believe you still have your Chatty Cathy. I SO wanted one. I also wanted a Chrissy doll . . . the one whose hair could grow . . . funny memories.

    Merry Christmas,


  7. Thanks for following my blog! I am now following you too. I hope you have a great holiday break!
