Day 12

What are you grateful for this Christmas?

This year I am so grateful for my family. I have gotten so much closer to my dad this past year and that means a lot to me because we haven’t alwasys gotten along. We are just too similar so we bump heads a lot but now our relationship is pretty strong and that makes me happy. I love my relationship with my mom. She has always been my best friend and she still is. I am thankful that my boyfriend is in my life for another year with many more to come. I am thankful that I was able to see my very best friend that I haven’t seen in 4 years (!!!) at her wedding reception! So happy I was apart of it. Ah so many good memories this year. It was a good year. I know I am dealing with some minor depression, but there are so many simple things to be thankful for.

Last, but certainly not least, I am thankful for the blogosphere. Everyone I have met here has been so helpful and I am so glad I have met some of you. Your comments and kind words always mean so much to me! Thank you for following me. Love you all ❤

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and I’ll see you again with my next post.

Until next time,

Day 11

What is your favorite childhood Christmas present?

I honestly can’t remember too many of the presents I received.

But I think my favorite has to be all the Barbies my parents would get me. I used to love Barbies and my mom used to get mad at me because I would want a new Barbie every time they came out with a new outfit or something. She would tell me they would just buy the outfit for my Barbie and I would tell her it wasn’t the same. 😉

My favorite Barbie:

I absolutely love Esmeralda and I think she is so underrated. Her Barbie was the most beautiful and I wish I still had her 😥


Okay! Thanks for reading and I’ll see you tomorrow for the last day!

Merry Christmas Eve!

Day 9

Who will be sitting with you for Christmas dinner?

My family, obviously. My mom and dad will be there with my grandma and grandpa and uncle. We are keeping it pretty simple this year since everyone branches off and does their own thing so our dinners aren’t as busy and big anymore, but this is still fun. Plus my boyfriend will be with me too so that makes me happy.


 

Day 10

Favorite Christmas Movie or song

My favorite movie is:

NationalLampoonsChristmasVacation

I already said How the Grinch Stole Christmas so now I’ll mention a comeday. This movie always cracks me up. Oh and I like Just Friends. I watch that every year.

Favorite Song:

All of them.

I don’t know! I really really like:

Carol of the Bells

What Child is This

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

Winter Wonderland

Sleigh Ride

Mary Did You Know

Last Christmas

OH! Santa Baby

and Baby, It’s Cold Outside

…yeah. I can’t just choose one. Sorry!

I’ll just leave this here for you guys too… 😉

 


Well there you have it! I’ll see you guys tomorrow for day 11.

Until next time,

day 8

Share a local christmas tradition in your town or country

So I admit I am awful and don’t know much about Christmas traditions for where I live or even in the US.. but I googled it and I found one of the cutest traditions ever. I think I got a little teary-eyed just looking at the article that I found. So at the community hospital here where I live, all the newborn babies born in December leave in STOCKINGS! HOW ADORABLE IS THAT?!?! Oh my gosh I am smiling so big looking at all these pictures! They have been doing it for 84 years and I never even knew!

Here is the article


 

I still think this is the cutest thing ever. It may not be a huge Christmas tradition by any means, but it was the cutest thing that I saw and I loved it too much not to share. Well, thanks for reading and I’ll see you tomorrow for day nine.

Until next time,

These are just a few photos from the last time my boyfriend and I went to Disneyland during Christmastime. I always loved Disney during Christmas and it makes me sad that I don’t have my annual pass anymore. 😥 It’s just so expensive! Oh well, there is also a Christmas-y photo of one of the cutest Christmas books I’ve ever read. Who doesn’t like My True Love Gave to Me right? ❤


Well thanks for reading and taking a look into my awkward self. Come back tomorrow as I tackle day 8!

Until next time,
