Five Question Friday! – December 3

by Carrie with Children with 8 comments

Hooray for Friday!  The countdown is on until Christmas!  Have you started decorating yet? We are starting the process this weekend!  Yay!

Just a reminder, I’m linking up with others for Five Question Friday and I don’t make up the questions. Click on the button below to see a linky list of others also participating.  Be sure and share your below too!

What’s on the top of your holiday wish list and why?!  I need (okay, I want) a Flip Cam! Just imagine all the amazing things I could get video of for my faithful blogging community!  🙂   Santa….are you reading this?  I hope so. 

What is your favorite Christmas gift from the past? My first Christmas with my now husband, he bought me diamond earrings and a diamond necklace. I think it was probably the first gift he ever game me…therefore, I treasure them.  (Plus, holy crap…I’d never had *real* diamonds before! lol)

If you had life to do over, what would you be when you grow up? I’ve already had an awesome job in public relations  Now, I’m pretty happy with being a mommy. I always thought I’d have a job in sports PR…until I actually had an internship doing PR in sports.  B-O-R-I-N-G!  I love sports, but working around it all day, the last thing I wanted to do was come home and watch ESPN and games.  I missed sports being fun.  (Yes, I realize that most females don’t think sports are fun, but I do!)

When do you put up your tree?  If I can convince “someone” to getting everything out of the attic, I’ll be putting up our decorations this weekend!  Notice I used the word “I”..  the other adult in this house is a Scrooge when it comes to putting the tree up.  (ps. I hope he’s reading this post! Hi Honey!)

What is your favorite Holiday?  I’m not just saying this because it’s Christmas….but my favorite holiday is Christmas! Now that I’m an aunt and a mom – I understand how awesome it is to watch kids get *so* excited about Christmas.

    Hello from a fello Christmas Lover. Good luck getting that tree up!
    I may be emailing you in about 10 years…my 9 year old son would want nothing more than to be an NFL player…and after that work at ESPN! LOL!

    When you're a kid, Christmas is fun. But, you're right…having kids makes Christmas even MORE fun! I have teenagers and they are still stoked about Christmas and get like they did when they were toddlers. Even my highschool freshman boy, who is so even-keeled and never shows any emotion and is taller than his dad gets excited and (almost, not quite) giggley. Kids – even big kids – get struck by the magic.

    Now, if only Scrooges could melt that way…

    We have a Flip and LOVE it! I hope you get one!

    Good luck w/ getting your tree up! 🙂

    Oh Carrie- I totally get the Scrooge-like husband…if I'm going to decorate I want to enjoy it for as long as possible (BEFORE Christmas).
    I hope you get your Flip- I have the Mino though not HD- I use it almost everyday. Now I just have to organize the clips- make sure you do that because before you know it you'll have a zillion clips all over the place!


  • CarliAlice

    I dream about a Flip…but my credit card would flip if I put it on there :).

  • LeeAnn

    I hope you get your Flip! I got one from Wet Ones a couple weeks ago (check out my blog for the cool science experiments we did) and I absolutely love it! We're going to *attempt* to get our tree up tomorrow…it just depends on whether or not we can get the "playroom" relocated. LOL

    Have a great weekend Carrie!

  • Aimee from Classified: Mom

    Followed ya from Swingin by Sunday blog hop- hope you'd swing by mine 😉

  • Eastlyn and co.

    I love your answers, Carrie. I get a little too long-winded at times with these things, but it's all in good fun. I dragged my tree down from the attic but haven't put it up either. It'll be up before Christmas Eve, I promise!
