The Blended Blog Asks............

And, once again, the Blended Blog gals have come up with some great questions to kick off the month of December. 

1. Candy Canes? Yes or No

I do like Peppermint a lot but I cannot remember the last time I ate a candy cane.  I diffuse Peppermint oil, love Peppermint Bark and Peppermint mixed with chocolate.  But, guess the candy cane would not really be a favorite.  I always buy a few and have them here for the Grans.

2. Christmas morning early riser or sleep in? 
I am up between 6:00 and 6:30 but we do not have anything going on at our house Christmas morning.  We do go over to our son's and see what the girlies have gotten from Santa and then have breakfast with them.  Typically I am an early riser, 5:15 - 5:30.

3. Did you shop on Black Friday? Yes or No
I could not tell you when I have ever been shopping on black Friday until this year.  My sister in law was here and we did go to a couple of places but neither place was crazy or insane.  We got what we went after and came home. 

4. Christmas Tree up in November? Yes or No
Here's a sneak peek of our tree. (I'll be doing a post on our Christmas decor this week)  I put it up on November 29th and will take it down on Christmas day.

5. Do you get Holiday ideas from Pinterest? Yes or No

I do like/enjoy Pinterest but I do not use it all that often.  I have not looked at it in a couple of months, so I sure haven't gotten any holiday ideas from it yet. 

6. Christmas Glam or Ugly Sweater?
I'm not into ugly sweaters at all.  Give me a pretty glamorous Christmas sweater and I'll enjoy wearing it.  I have 3-4 very attractive Christmas sweaters that I enjoy wearing.

7. Stocking Stuffers: Wrapped or Unwrapped?

I use to go all out with Christmas stockings but haven't in recent years.  I would fill Christmas buckets for the kids with all kinds of goodies, unwrapped. It was fun and they loved it but once Grans came along the focus became more on them.  I might do them stockings one day but for now, I do not do them for anyone.  I do have beautiful needlepoint stockings for our family like the ones show above. 

8. Traditional or Modern Christmas Songs?
I will take a mixture of both because I enjoy all Christmas music.

9. Fruitcake? Yes or No
I have never, ever cared for regular fruitcake.  Now, icebox fruitcake is another story.  I love it but only as long as it just has cherries and pecans in it.  Don't ruin it with raisins or dates or any other strange ingredient. 
~picky, picky~

10. Is your Christmas Shopping Finished? Yes or No?

Yes, I am finished but still have a few to wrap.  I was staying caught up with the wrapping but the gifts got ahead of me last week.  I probably have about 6-8 to wrap and I'll be through.  

11. Is there Snow in December where you live? 
This was our backyard and the pond about 3 weeks ago and it was mid November.  So, I suppose it certainly could snow in Dec. 

12. Classic Show: A Charlie Brown Christmas or Rudolph?

That's a tough choice since they are both such classics.  But, I'd have to go with Charlie Brown, just because.

Have a great first week of December!!!

I have been so busy decorating that the wrapping has gotten behind me, they are all in boxes with tissue but oh my. A least I do love to wrap! I loved reading your answers and I am so excited for your decor posts!! Happy Monday most beautiful lady!

    1. Five weeks ago my boyfriend broke up with me. It all started when i went to summer camp i was trying to contact him but it was not going through. So when I came back from camp I saw him with a young lady kissing in his bed room, I was frustrated and it gave me a sleepless night. I thought he will come back to apologies but he didn't come for almost three week i was really hurt but i thank Dr.Azuka for all he did i met Dr.Azuka during my search at the internet i decided to contact him on his email he brought my boyfriend back to me just within 48 hours i am really happy. What’s app contact : +44 7520 636249‬

  2. This was a fun meme this morning and I enjoyed your answers. I feel like a scrooge reading yours and other blog posts. I don't decorate my house very much, I don't buy a lot of gifts and certainly don't do much gift wrapping. Our gift giving has taken a different direction this year, and I'm still kind of struggling with that, and hope it will work out. Enjoy your week.

  3. Your tree looks beautiful! My gifts have been arriving but are all still boxed up in my front room. I need to get a new tree skirt and haven't gotten around to it yet.

  4. Lea, I enjoyed reading your answers. I haven't done stockings in years either. Your decorations look lovely. I haven't begun yet but it will get done soon. I am definitely going to play along. Have a great week.

  5. Enjoyed your answers and loving the tree. Here are my answers.
    1: Yes on the candy canes. I keep them all during the holiday season.
    2: No kiddos on Christmas morning so can sleep in. Though I normally don't.
    3: No mam. Did go to a couple of stores on that Saturday while in Ga. I have bought almost every single thing on line this year.
    4: Yes, Night before Thanksgiving
    5: I do. Love browsing Pinterest. Though I seldom do anything I pin. LOL!
    6: Ugly sweater party would be so fun but I do like the GLAM!
    7: Yes all my stocking stuffers for my grands are wrapped.
    8: Traditional
    9: Not too much. Just give me the fruit cake without the fruit. LOL!
    10: Except for 3 gift cards.
    11: No but I do wish we could have a little snow.
    12" Rudolph. Love his nose.
    This was fun Lea. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  6. ***** Your backyard is like a fairy tale setting! *****

  7. Hi Lea... I love all of your answers! I am almost done indoor decorating, have done no wrapping, and need to do outside decorating. You and I feel the same way about fruitcake. Have a wonderful week.

  8. Cute questions! I'm with you on fruit cakes.. or anything that has raisins or dates. Yuck. I haven't started shopping yet, but all we get are gift cards for the grands. I don't care for candy canes either. Have a good rest of the week!


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
