Five Question Friday

I love blog hops! They really get you in touch with some fabulous bloggers! That's how I found all of you lovelies to stalk blog with! Time for Five Question Friday from My Little Life for today.

Questions for Friday, November 20th:

1. Are you a Black Friday shopper?
Not really. Gasp, I know! I just A)hate getting up that early on my "vacation" and B)would rather freak and get all my Christmas junk in one fell swoop later on. I know, it's so Un-American.

2. What was your favorite childhood toy? (Think Easy Bake Oven, Cabbage Patch Kid, Shrinky Dinks, etc.)
OK, if I could remember the names of the crap, I would list it; but I did LOVE some Shrinky Dinks. Sidenote-about 3 years ago I found one at KB Toys and bought it for my sister. It was Hello Kitty too! Radical! We baked Shrinkies till the sun went down. I also loved my play kitchen from Little Tikes. Remember those-they were made out of plastic and had all the "real touches." And Barbies. And my first Walkman.

3. Favorite Christmas movie?
Home Alone-no question. I still can quote the entire thing. (So can Sissy) Maybe tied with National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.

4. What is the "must have" item on your Christmas list this year?
A friggin' car radio-for the love-it's been broken since July of last summer. Maybe an incident with a drink spilling on it. Yeah, and now NOTHING but AM talk radio comes through. My iPod won't work in it either. Death by boredom in the car. I can't wait to drive four hours on Monday. Rad.

5. Do you go all out with decorations or do you keep it simple and classy?
VERY simple-we are gone for like 2 weeks, so there is no point in blowing it out right now. I have about 23 decorations, and we get a live tree. That is it. We will do it up "right" once everyone starts coming here to celebrate with the Emmster.
Join in ladies, let's hear what you do!
Happy Weekend!


  1. I hope you get your car radio! I like me some Home Alone too and my kiddos love it.

    You'll have to play car games on your 4 hour times!! ;-)


  2. Did you forget "charmkins?" Was that what those little things in the little house were called? Yes, you and your sweet, precious, darling sissy fought over them all the way to Nashville!!!!
