Holiday Wish List Meme...

Mama's Holiday Wish List Meme

TodaysMama and Provo Craft are giving away a sleighful of gifts this holiday season and to enter I'm sharing this meme with you.

1. What 5 items are on your holiday wish list this year?

*Victoria Secret's new Miraculous Push-up bra. Dude, have you seen this thing?? I want one SoOoOoO bad!

*Snuggie.....yes, really.

*Gift Cards..you can never go wrong with gift cards.

*Paint. I really want to paint some walls in my house. I have been staring at Mushroom Basket walls for almost seven years...I'm ready for color.

*Jeans. All my jeans show my crack..maybe it wouldn't be a big deal if it was a cute crack, but really it shouldn't be showing its self off.

2. What is your favorite handmade gift you have received?

I am so bad at remembering gifts. I know I have gotten some good ones. The first one that pops into mind is the pillowcase that Marcus made me one year. Before we brought Christian home, Marcus had a job that made him travel a lot so he was gone for weeks at a time. He didn't want me to get lonely while he was gone or have to sleep alone, so he ironed a transfer of his head on a pillow case. I am still traumatized by the whole event.

3. What handmade gift have you always wanted to tackle?

I want to learn to make the cute little hats and scarves that are so popular and cute right now. For some reason, I can't knit...my brain just doesn't work that way.

4. What was the best Christmas gift you received as a child?

They always say that when you grow up, you aren't going to remember the actual gifts you received; you will remember things that you did and the fun you had. This is so true for me. I don't remember a single present I got as a kid, but I do remember all the fun we had. I have always loved opening presents so when I was younger, I would get stuff I all ready had and wrap it just so I had more stuff to open on Christmas morning. Yes, I know...DoRk!!

5. What items are on your kid's wish list this year?

Emma told me the other day she wants games, band-aids and fruit snacks. I asked her if she wanted anything else, and the smart little two year old that she is said, "No, that's plenty."

Christian wants every toy he sees on TV right now.

6. What is your favorite holiday food?

That's like asking a mom to pick her favorite child. I won't choose and you can't make me.

7. What will you be hand-crafting for the holidays?

I'll be lucky if I get my cards made this year.

8. What is your favorite holiday movie?

I don't have a favorite one, but the one I HaTe with a capital H is Christmas Story. I don't know what it is about that movie, but I can't stand it!!

9. Favorite holiday song?

I love Christmas music...just after Thanksgiving at least.

10. Favorite holiday pastime?

Eating, shopping, eating, spending time with family, decorating, eating, baking...I love it all!!

So my friend got the bra. And yes, it's freaking miraculous. Seriously.

I am so glad to find someone else who HATES the Christmas Story. I don't think I've ever been able to watch it the whole way through. Annoying!
