1. What is your favorite Christmas cookie?I don't know if I have a favorite, but hubby and I made some chocolate chip peanut butter cookies last weekend that were unbelievable. I won't even admit how many I have eaten! I will say that there has been much tasty delight in so many days this week marked by such shameful lack of self control. haha
2. What's your favorite holiday movie & why?I've had two Christmas movies since I can remember and they are The Santa Claus and Miracle on 31st Street. I've watched them so much that I'm pretty sure I could quote the lines independently. Somewhere along the line they became part of the spiritedness of Christmas.
3. Is there a gift that you bought for your kids that you wish you hadn't after they opened it?Can't say there is considering we don't have kiddos currently. Hubby and I don't exchange gifts, so no worries there (phew!). For everyone else we give gifts to we receive a detailed list from them weeks prior, so that cuts down on the risk of them not liking it or us wishing we'd done something different.
4. What is the messiest room in your house right at this moment?Oh dear. It might be a toss up between the kitchen and living room. I finally visited the public library where we live (we've only lived here 8 mo), and came away with a stack of books. Needless to say my nerdy book-lovin self was in a very happy place. So much so that my dirty dishes are still needing loading into the dishwasher, counters washed, and trash can liner replaced. On top of that my living room currently looks like a library threw up because of all the books scattered about. Ugh, I'm so embarrassed and ashamed now that I've not only pulled my head out of the books and looked around, but also that I've shared my mess! Oh well, such is life. Today shall be a cleaning day that is for sure. haha
5. What is the furthest you have driven for the holidays?
Last year we spent the holidays with my husband's family who live about 6-7 hours away from us. Currently, we're still close enough to each side of family that we can drive to spend the holidays with them. We know it won't always be the case, so we're grateful for these opportunities presently.
