Holly Jolly Holiday Tag

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Long time no see, huh? I know I know…I have no excuse. I promise to try and do better.

Anyways, I found this Holiday questions tag online and liked it so I thought I’d give it a try. I “tag” you all to answer them as well. Merry Christmas Everyone!

-Favorite Christmas movie?

White Christmas is a family favorite. I love The Grinch with Jim Carrey and I always have to Watch Santa Baby on ABC Family every year.

-Are you on the Naughty list or the Nice list?

Nice 🙂

-Show us an embarrassing Christmas Card photo!

I don’t think my family has ever done Christmas card pictures…soooo, sorry!

-Have you ever had a White Christmas?

Yes, they are my favorite. Living in Ohio we get our fair share of snow so I get disappointed when we don’t have one. This Winter has been on the warm side and it is supposed to be around 55 degrees on Christmas Day. I may be the only person who is disappointed in that fact. Sorry, but Christmas should be cold.

-Where do you usually spend your holiday?

We go to my Grandma’s house or one of my Aunt’s houses.

-What’s your favorite Christmas song?

Oh, I have so many…I love Christmas music. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas (I love the message in this song and it makes me think of when I was young and Christmas was this truly magical time), Baby It’s Cold Outside, and of course, All I Want for Christmas is You.

-Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?

Nope. I’m a Christmas morning kind of girl. I do still like to get up bright and early though. J

-Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?

Dasher, Dancer, Donner, Blitzen, Comet, Cupid, Prancer, Rudolph…wow 8, that is pretty good! I went and looked to see who I missed…it was Vixen. Damn.

-What holiday tradition are you looking forward to most this year?

It’s simple, but I like putting up the tree at my mom’s house, we play Christmas music and it is fun going through all the old ornaments and remembering past Christmases. When my dad was in kindergarten he made this elf ornament and it somehow became tradition that it is always the first ornament we put on the tree and we take a picture. It is old and falling apart but I love it.

-Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

Fake. It’s always been fake. I just think it is easier and now it is kind of tradition.

-Hands down, what’s your all-time favorite holiday food and holiday sweet treat?

I don’t really know…Christmas Cookies? Like Christmas shaped sugar cookies with icing and Holiday sprinkles. Or Starbucks’ Chestnut Praline Lattes!

-Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?

I like giving gifts of course but I’m not going to lie I like getting them too J

-What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?

Alaska maybe? I’ve always wanted to go dog sledding there.

-Does your family have a special holiday recipe you like to help make?

No, not really.

-Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?

I fail. My family makes fun of me sometimes. I just get annoyed and rush it.

-Most memorable Holiday moment?

So let me tell you a story, when I was 2 I really wanted a Waterbaby baby doll because my cousin had one. If you aren’t a kid from the 90’s and you don’t know what a Waterbaby is, it’s a rubber baby doll that you fill with water and it makes it fell like a “real baby”. (Disclaimer: Now that I am 25 and have actually held a real human baby, I will tell you that from what I remember the Waterbaby actually feels nothing like a real baby.) Anyways I digress; I finally got it for Christmas and was so unbelievably excited I screamed. It is on video and I used to love watching it. I should dig it up and watch it again…But then I would also have to find a VCR…not an easy feat in 2015.



-What made you realize the truth about Santa?

I remember just asking my mom one random night if he was real and she reluctantly told me the truth. I still make her put “from Santa” on some of my presents, forever a child at heart.

-Do you make New Year’s resolutions? Do you stick to them?

Sometimes, but I know I never stick with them so it’s not very serious.

-What makes the Holidays special for you?

Being with my family and being able to catch up.


That’s all. I hope everyone has a great Christmas with their family and friends or whoever they spend it with!

Hello world!

Hi, it’s Michelle! This is my first post on my very on domain, yay! I am so happy to finally be here on Word Press. I’m coming over from Blogger and I will be posting some of my old content from over there; so if you didn’t get to see it there you will be able to here. I came to Word Press to get more control over my blog and to make it more “official” if you will…

I want to  become even more serious about blogging. I will be posting every Sunday, so make sure you check here then. I’ll be updating/customizing the theme and background for a while so be patient and I promise it will be spectacular in the end.

I am a firm believer that Starbucks coffee and a good lipstick can get a girl through anything. So if you are into makeup and beauty products, or if you just want to see someone else go through life without any idea of what they are doing then come along on the journey with me!

love you_mean it.♥
