Christmas Themed 5QF!

TGIF! This week draaaaaagged on. Tuesday felt like Wednesday, Wednesday felt like Thursday and so on. BUT it's Friday now and that's all that matters! 

This weekends events include...

Tonight - Cooking a yummy dinner for Cameron to celebrate him getting his MBA from the Citadel

Saturday - Getting my hair did by Kady, picking up our new couch (yay!!), and an oyster roast.
Please disregard the hideous Southwestern pillows.

Sunday - Painting kitchen cabinets (second and hopefully final coat) and hopefully lazy couch time! Super exciting, I know.

1. Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?

Both! We go to my step-grandmother's Christmas party on Christmas Eve for a few hours and open our presents from her, then we go to my Grandma Charlotte's house for dinner with my dad's side of the family and open presents from that side of the family. 

Christmas day we (mom, dad, sister) wake up and open presents from each other, mom cooks breakfast casserole and people drop in, then we head to my Grandma Anna's house for an early dinner with my mom's side of the family and open presents from them. And after that we (Cameron & I) make our final stop to Cameron's parents house for yet another meal and more presents. A great, yet tiring, day!

2. What is your favorite Christmas cookie (or candy)?
Candy canes have always been a favorite of mine. I love all things peppermint!

3. What's the worst Christmas gift you've ever received?
I don't think I can share this info juuuuuust in case the person that gave me the gift stumbles across my blog. ;) It was a family member and they were shoes. That's all I'm saying. How can someone go wrong with a pair of shoes, you ask? Oh, how I wish I could show you!

4. Christmas song that you love?
I don't even have to think about this one!! Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas." Even when it's not Christmastime, I love this song! It makes me do a happy dance.

5. How many trees do you put up?
One is all I need. 

Have a great weekend, y'all! 


  1. Mariah Carey's is definitely the best. I love the new couch, but those pillow are hideous. So funny. Glad you said to disregard those. :) What are you making for dinner?

  2. hands down...MC's christmas song is THE BEST! i could jam out to that all year round.

  3. We open presents on Christmas Day... we make (or rather, Santa makes) a treasure hunt out of the presents with little written clues hidden all over. It is very stressful to put it together, but the excitement and joy is well-worth it in the end!

    I love really good, buttery, sugary, frosted sugar cookies cut into Christmasy shapes.

    I cannot think of a "worst" Christmas present. Maybe it was the Nothing I got year before last?

    I love Santa Baby sung by Eartha Kitt... but I especially love listening to my daughter sing it... so cute!

    Just one tree! Last year it was fake... the kids made me promise not to do that this year. Still need to go get a real tree...
