Five Question Friday!

1. What Christmas song do you loathe?

To be quite honest, I LOVE Christmas music! There is no song I do not love, nor one that I am too afraid to belt out a the top of my lungs! (And I am a terrible singer!)....I live for Christmas music, and during the year when I am feeling down, sad, upset, or just not like my chipper self, I will listen to some Christmas music.

2. Do you and your significant other cuddle at night or sleep on opposite sides of the bed?

So no one gag, my sister teases me about this, but my husband and I sleep facing each other. Usually we fall asleep talking to one another, and holding hands. We have had a king-sized bed on vacations, and they are horrible for us! We end up chasing each other around the bed, and neither one of us sleep very well. I am pretty sure if it wasn't taboo or weird, we would share a double.....guess we just sleep better when the other is nearby. (I sound like a Hallmark card!)

3. Have you ever had surgery?

When I was three years old, I had to have ten crowns placed on my baby teeth, since my parents allowed me to sleep with a bottle in my mouth while sleeping....I remember the hospital robe and my mom making me scrambled eggs when I got home. Then when I was 17 I had my wisdom teeth pulled out, and I hope and pray that is the extent of my surgeries. I ended up healing over the stitches so they had to reopen the sutures and I was MISERABLE! I had to eat baby food and yogurt for 3 weeks...on my tiny frame, those were precious pounds lost.

4. When do you typically have your holiday shopping done?

I DESPISE shopping....and yes I am a woman. But the act of shopping has forever been lost on me. Something I have never understood is how people can go from store to store to simply look at what they have....ugh.
Since I refuse to meander around stores, my Christmas shopping gift search begins while everyone is thinking about flowers, chocolate bunnies, fireworks, and BBQs. I begin the hunt for the perfect gift early on, and usually, if I can get away with it, buy the gifts online. This year, my husband and I moved 1200 miles just two weeks ago, so the shopping has been trickier than normal. Other than a few homemade gifts, one more on-line order, and finishing my hubby's gift, I am all done!

5. If money were not an issue (and you HAD to pick something), what would your ultimate luxury item be?

I work from home as a writer, and if I could have absolutely anything, I would have a top of the line computer to work from (If you notice, I don't even know exactly what kind...I don't look at things I can't afford :) Makes appreciating the things I have a little easier!

May this find everyone in the best of health and happiness this season....all the blessings one blog can hold.....

Jaclyn, you and I share the same philosophy when it comes to Christmas music. :) It makes me feel good, so why not listen to it ANY time of year? It's kind of like Christmas movies. I don't reserve those for December-only viewing either!

I read the part about the wisdom teeth and realized that I forgot to list that one. Had that done when I was 22 and it was pretty horrible. I got dry socket and they packed it full of gauze soaked in clove flavored medicine. EGAD! Everything I attempted to it reeked of cloves! Ever have clove flavored mashed potatoes? Or clove flavored Jello? YUCK!!!

Hope you're having a beautiful day! :) The sun is attempting to make an appearance as I type this. We still have fog hanging around from this morning. That's unusual for us.

I too am a fan of Christmas songs throughout the year. It just makes me giddy.

First timer to your blog! :)
