Five Question Friday

Be still my heart! TWO posts in one day!

I love this week's questions. Create your own and link up with Mama M!

My Little Life

1. Are you a Black Friday shopper?

I went to Kohls ONCE on a black friday, and I vowed to never do it again! I can't handle all the rude people. I enjoy the holiday shopping when people are happy and joyful, when people aren't parking in "non parking spots", and the Christmas cheer is actually in the air. Perhaps the only time I would be willing to go shopping on Black Friday is if I wanted something large, like a TV, and could save a massive amount of $$.

What was your favorite childhood toy? (Think Easy Bake Oven, Cabbage Patch Kid, Shrinky Dinks, etc.)

I played with my barbies for WAY too long! I just loved dressing them and doing their hair. I had the pink convertible and the hair salon. I was big into Polly Pocket as well.

However, NOTHING tops my most favorite toy. I had many Cabbage Patch kids. Loved them! My most favorite one was the infant Cabbage Patch. She was the cutest little thing! Bald and always wore a pink jammie outfit. She is still in my attic in case I have a little girl one day. :)

Favorite Christmas movie?

Mama M and myself are very similar here. I LOVE Elf. Typically I do not like Will Ferrell, but he's brilliant in this movie.

and.......go ahead and start laughing now....

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.

I love the scene when the bandits come in the house and slip on paint, gets bricks thrown at them, get stapled, etc...cracks me up!

What is the "must have" item on your Christmas list this year?

Nothing major. I do need new sneaks. I have a hole in the top of my Asics.

Do you go all out with decorations or do you keep it simple and classy?

We tend to do simple. Our tree usually have gold ribbon, white lights, and gold and silver ornaments.

Your simple tree sounds like it's beautiful! You must post pics!

What were you thinking, Kohl's on Black Friday? That place is a zoo on a regular old Saturday afternoon!!!


Stacey said...

The tree sounds very pretty. I never had a cabbage patch kid. I think I was too old for them when they came out.

I must admit that I've never watched the whole movie "elf" but I've seen a bit here and there. Its cute!

Your decorations sound elegant! I think we're headed towards popcorn garland or paper rings for a while :-)

I never thought I would be a Black Friday shopper but was talked into it with my daughter and the then free gifts were an added bonus. I do like some of the deals available but if the line is toooooo long to check out, I leave it behind. I usually have all my shopping done by Thanksgiving so I can spend the holidays stress free. This year I have been sidetracked with our remodel and my daughters wedding and don't have as much done as I should. Depending on what is on sale and it's deal that is left on my list, will depend if I go out this year.

I'm surprised at how many "Elf"'s I'm seeing!!

Guess we have good taste! And, I love me some Home Alone, also!

I used to play with Barbie, but I had this thing with cutting their hair. Like I was a stylist or something. I thought I was giving them these cute new hair styles...yeah, right!

Hey! Total side note: I just read your profile thing really all the way through. You said "not together" regarding pomegranate and advacado eating. I may be about to change the way you see guacamole forever! You know how some people put tomato in? Well, instead of tomato, put in pomegranate seeds. It is SOOOOOO good. It is a more traditional Spanish way to make guac. You must try it!
