Fa Ra Ra Ra Ra! Christmas Tag! and pictures

This is a tag and a picture post! Enjoy

1. Favorite Christmas Movie? Obviously by the title, my all time favorite Christmas Movie is the Christmas Story! It has always been a tradition to watch it all day long on Christmas day. Where ever we went, it was on. I still leave it on till this day, I refuse to watch anything else! I do have others though. Ever since Elf came out, it has been one of my favorites. I remember the year it came out, I was a semior in high school and my best friend lived with me at the time and we were in our xmas jammies all day watching it, playing with our new foot bath we got for Christmas. Another one I have is Meet Me in St. Louis and I never realized it was a Christmas movie until recently. It does have some Christmas scene's in it but I never categorized it as one. My mumum (dad's mom) loved Judy Garland and I always watched it with her since I was little.I cannot leave out Bad Santa either. It's freaking hilarious

2. Are you on the Naughty list or the Nice list? I would say the Nice list because its about progress not perfection (:

3. Have you ever had a White Christmas? Yes, I live in Ohio! But honestly, we haven't had one in years. Lately it has started snowing in like February. It has been on the "fall weather" side during this time of year for like 6 years now. I remember when I was little I would pray for it to snow on Christmas every year, haha! Children's prayers are so jaded.

4. Where do you usually spend your holiday? I usually go my Uncle Mitch's house on my dad's sides on Christmas eve, because we are Italian and we celebrate with seafood on Christmas eve. On Christmas day, we usually stay home. This year we went to my Auni Lori and Uncle John's

5. Favorite Christmas Song!:  I like the song at the end of The Christmas Story! I just like any Christmas Music

6. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve? We open 1 but this year we didn't open 1.

7. What holiday tradition are you looking forward to most this year? I did my christmas cookies but that is what I was looking forward to. I did Cake Batter Fudge, Truffles w/ Butterfinger, Pop Rocks, Sprinkles and I put some of them in a hard chocolate shell and they are amazing by the way. I also did English Toffee and Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons

8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake? We have had the same fake Christmas tree since I was born. I don't know anything different.

9. What's your all-time favorite holiday food and holiday sweet treat? Favorite food would be Lobster on Christmas Eve and sweet treat are my Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons. I wish I could virtually send one to you

10. Be Honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better? I love the shopping and putting the gifts together and that lasts for at least 2 weeks. Once I get my presents, they are all opened in one day so I wanna say giving. But I am not being honest with you if I do not say that they are a true tie

11. What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season? Not sure. I like being home but if my whole family and all my friends could go somewhere I would love to go somewhere Tropical

12. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably? Pro-Present wrapper! I wrapped the red polka dots and the blue polka dot w/ snow flakes ones!

13. Most memorable Holiday moment? When I was younger I would wake up at my mom's b/f's house with his daughter Tina and we would open up all of our stuff and it was seriously the best day of my life. Afterward, I would go to my Grandma's and get presents and play with my cousins then I would go to my Mumum's (dad's mom) and un-wrap all of those presents & play with my cousins. I was always a little sad once it was all over but I would usually stay the night at my mumum's and I remember always being exited for the full day and each year is memorable so I just always loved Christmas in itself

14. What made you realize the truth about Santa? Ha! When I was 6 or 7 I was suspicious about Santa so when it was my turn to sit on his lap I knew I was going to ask for nail polish! I asked for that because I didn't ask my mom and I wanted to see if I got it. When Christmas came, I un-wrapped all my presents and there was no nail polish to be found. I confronted my mom on the situation Christmas morning and she was speechless for a moment but then quickly reminded me that Santa goes to Mumum's and Grandma's house too. touché mom. Needless to say I didn't get any polish that year so that was when I knew he was fake.

This Sally Hansen's Strobe Light. For $2-$3 it is a great glitter polish. I needed around 3-4 coats to cover my whole nail which is awesome for so cheap.

15. Do you make New Years Resolutions? Do you stick to them? I always make the same ones and I always try my best to stick to them. Save 20% of what I make (I accomplished that one) Lose weight and stay healthy (it was touch and go this year as you can see if you read my blog) I will have more this year but I am one of those people that write in journals, and make lists, document everything, brainstorm on my life and what I want to accomplish and all that so I will do a blog post about it. If you have read Smart Women Finish Rich then you know what I am talking about.

16. What's your favorite holiday drink? I have been making it almost every morning. Regular coffee with french vanilla cream, truvia, and candy cane hot cocoa mixed in. To mix it all together I take a candy cane and go to town! It is delicious

17. Candy cane or Gingerbread men? Candy Canes of course. I dont like Gingerbread men. I just like building the house but eating it is another thing.

18. What's the weirdest gift you've ever received? When I was like 18 or 19 I was re-doing my room so I told my bf that I wanted a white mirror. He got it for me but wrote all over it things like "damn girl you look good as fukc" and "your ass is sexy" when I opened it on Christmas day, my Grandma was there and I could have died. Also, It didn't go with my new decor in the least bit. It just looked trashy. *face palm*

19.  Have you ever made a snowman? Yes of course

20. What is your favorite winter fragrance? This year, it has been Candied Sugar Plum. Omg! I have wallflowers and candles galore in this house

21. What is at the top of your list this Christmas?The Naked Palette palette was at the top of my list and I got it! I am going to do a post of what I got this year! I gave good gifts and I got some great ones! so be looking out for that soon


Here's the rest of my Christmas....

Jewelmint came and I am going to do a review type of thing soon but I will just tell you that I am extremely impressed!
