I’ve Been Tagged – 4 Things

So, my hottie pants friend Crunchy VT Mommy tagged me to do this survey-ma-bobber. I don’t normally do these things, but since it’s Saturday and I’m going to be cleaning my kid’s butt and finding new and exciting ways to entertain her all day, I figured why not take on something that requires minimal thought? Enjoy.

4 things in my handbag:

  • Sinus medicine to help get rid of my sinusitis.
  • A Verizon bill.
  • A pad. (You know, a sanitary napkin?)
  • A portable hard drive (for all the top secret super spy work I do)

4 things in/on my desk:

  • Picture of Nellie
  • Box of Kleenex (to help with my sinusitis)
  • Coffee mug with members of my quartet & me dressed up like elves, courtesy of ElfYourself.
  • A small figurine of Cinderella & Prince Charming.. With Cinderella missing her head.
4 Favorite things in my bedroom:

  • Clothes. All over the floor. Everywhere.
  • Probably, a cat.
  • An acoustic guitar that I never play.
  • Baby cradle that was my husband’s, that Nellie slept in for the first 2 months of her life. My cat Hannibal has now deemed it HIS bed.

4 Things I have always wanted to do (but haven’t tried yet):

  • Gotten a tattoo.
  • Fit into a size 6. I think if I tried it right now the pants would actually laugh at me, then spontaneously combust.
  • Learn to swing dance.
  • Conquer a small country.

4 Things I enjoy very much at the moment:

  • Pumpkin spice EVERYTHING.
  • Sleeping.
  • Napping.
  • Dance parties.

4 Songs I cannot get out of my head:

  • Like a G6 – IDK who the hell sings this song.
  • Check It Out – will.i.am & Nicki Minaj
  • There’s A Party In My Tummy – Yo Gabba Gabba
  • Backin’ Up

4 Things you did not know about me:

  • I have a scar on my left cheek that came from being impaled on a tree branch. Yes, impaled. As in, from the inside out.
  • When I eat potato chips I lick each side to see which one is the saltiest.
  • I’m terrified of tsunamis.
  • I’m actually a marsupial.
Now it is my turn to tag four bloggers:

Ho Ho Ho! No, I’m not calling you names. It’s a Christmas Survey!

I snagged this Christmas survey from my friend Melissa at Baby Wanted.

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? – Wrapping paper, though I am terrible at wrapping.
2. Real tree or artificial? – Though I love the smell of a real Christmas tree, I opt for the conveniently fake pre-lit ones.
3. When do you put up the tree? – When we have one (we didn’t last year because we weren’t going to be home for Christmas, and won’t this year because we’re broke and somehow managed to lose our Christmas tree from two years ago. I know, how the hell does one lose a Christmas tree? Beats the hell outta me, kids) we put it up the day after Thanksgiving.
4. When do you take the tree down? – Josh likes to take it down the day after Christmas. I prefer to leave it up until New Year’s Day.
5. Do you like eggnog? – Vomit. …So, that means no.
6. What about Fruitcake? – I have never in my life tried fruitcake. It honestly looks like something that someone cooked, ate, threw up, cooked again, threw up once more, molded into a cake shape and cooked again.
7. Favorite gift received as a child? – I loved Littlest Pet Shop toys, Barbies, and other dolls when I was young. When I got older, I liked board games and video games, creative stuff like “do it yourself pottery kits”, etc and once I got even older, money and giftcards.
8. Do you have a nativity scene? – Nope.
9. Hardest person to buy for? – My dad
10. Easiest person to buy for? – My hubby – he makes me a list. LOL.
11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? – I plead the fifth.
12. Mail or email Christmas cards? – Mail, when I find the time to actually do it.
13. Favorite Christmas movie? – Christmas Vacation. Hands down. I cannot get into the holiday spirit without watching this movie, which I usually do either on Thanksgiving or the day after.
14. When do you start shopping for Christmas? – If we have the money for Christmas gifts, we like to start sometime in November.
15. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? – Not that I can remember.
16. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? – Everything in sight.
17. Clear lights or colored on the tree? – Colored
18. Favorite Christmas song? – It’s a tie between Happy XMas (War is Over) by John Lennon, and Star of Wonder by the Roches.
19. Travel for Christmas or stay at home? – We almost always go to Chicago to see my family for Christmas.
20. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeers? – DasherDancerPrancerVixenComitCupidDonnerBlitzenRudolph. So, essentially, yes.
21. Angel on the tree top or a star? – Star.
22. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? – One gift on Christmas Eve, everything else on Christmas.
23. What is the one present you want most this year? – For Nellie to remain growing big, healthy, and strong.. If she wants to make her debut into this world early, she must wait until after December 27th (that’s when we reach 37 weeks).
24. Most annoying thing about this time of year? – People EVERYWHERE. Can’t go anywhere near a mall without going nuts.
25. What I love most about Christmas? – Everything. The lights, the music, the feeling of togetherness, family.
