Finish the Sentence....Christmas Edition

It's been a while since I have participated in a link-up, but Jake and Holly are back at it again!  Thankfully this one is all about Christmas and I love Christmas.  A win-win in my book.  Here goes nothin'!


1. My favorite Christmas was....the year my aunt and mom arranged my grandparents’ light up deer in their front yard to make it look like one was mounting the other…  My grandparents’ street has a tradition where each house puts a cardinal with Christmas lights on it in their front yard, and a lot of people drive through their neighborhood to check it out.  We all started to realize that people were driving by extra slow in front of their house, but figured they just really liked my grandparents’ decorations.  I can’t remember how my grandparents found out about the “act” that was taking place in their front yard, but my grandma flipped a biscuit when she realized and we all learned a very valuable lesson that day.  Never mess with grandma’s sh*t!!! Sorry grandma….

Just kidding, my favorite Christmas was last year because it was Kamden’s first, and I have never felt such a sense of family as I did last year.  The holidays are much more fun and meaningful with KB here. J

2. The worst Christmas I had....was when my family thought it would be hilarious to give me TRAINING BRAS in my stocking for me to open in front of EVERYONE.  Along with that being super hilarious, was the fact that I never even thought I needed a bra (I was like 7 or 8 or something) and that was how I was told.  Yeah, that totally happened.  And also, what Santa brings a kid a training bra?  Probably the creepo Santa that works in the department store to support his boozing habit. Worst part was that my cousin, same age as me, was getting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle figurines, candy, etc. in his stocking and all I was pulling out was training bra after training bra.  I die.

3. That one gift that made me scratch my head and say, "Hmmmm" bras (see #2).  Side note: Are training bras a thing still?  Or are they just called sports bras now?

4. One year a My Little Sister doll and my cousin got a My Little Buddy doll.  Anyone remember those?  I loved my doll but told my cousin that his doll was Chucky from Child’s Play.  He was so easy to mess with and totally believed me.  I am pretty sure he set that doll outside his bedroom every night with his door closed for at least 5 years.

5. I think the worst gift to give is....TRAINING BRAS!!!! Duh…

6. At Christmastime I typically....pretend that I am going to work out more and eat extra healthy to offset the holiday food consumption on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve….but in reality I end up working out less and eating my weight in chocolate and eggnog.  That’s why leggings are a must around the holidays.  J

7. Typically, family Christmas....happens the weekend before Christmas (for my side).  It’s so hard to get everyone together when there are spouses that celebrate with their families, etc.  We decided celebrating the weekend before makes it easier on everyone so they are not hopping from house to house on Christmas day.

8. If I could change one thing about the Holiday would be that we all had more time to spend with family.  I know things can get hectic and a lot of people can’t wait until all the madness is over, but I always feel like I am rushing from place to place to actually be able to enjoy myself.  So, employers just need to give everyone that week off and we would all be a little less batty.

9. It is so hard to buy brother.  He’s 12 now and I have no idea what 12 year old boys like.  Plus, he lives in Arizona so I only see him maybe 2 times per year.  He is so smart and so mature that every gift I come across seems too childish for him.  Even gifts that I would personally love myself seem too childish.

10. My favorite Christmas tradition is....eggnog.  I love eggnog and the only time I get to drink it is at my grandparent’s house for Christmas.  It may be the only drink without alcohol in it that I am most excited about.  I love the stuff.  My grandma puts ice cream in hers.  MMMMmmmHmmmmm that stuff is yummy!

11. Santa, baby, bring me a....winning Mega Millions ticket!  I want to fly all of our asses out of this deathly cold weather and lay on a beach in the sun until we turn into beef jerky.

Tan Mom: Ruining beef jerky since 2012
One more week after tomorrow and I am off until after the new year.  I will make it to Christmas.....I will make it to Christmas......
