Friend-Makin' Mondays and LAST Baby Paxton

All right! Back into the swing of things. I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving! My husband and I couldn't afford to go visit family, so my grandparents came to visit us. We had a really good dinner (at a restaurant because I have no table and the exterminator was coming again the next day) and got to spend some time with them since we won't see them for...quite some time now.

So Friend-Makin' Monday is another survey! I love surveys for some reason. If you want to join in, please feel free to visit Amber.

1. Favorite website
Hmm...I like to read my friend Vashti's blog or The Uniform Project is really cool. Also, my guilty pleasure is This Is Why You're Fat.

2. Favorite color
Cerulean blue. It's a crayon color

3. Facebook? {Post a link or share your name if you want some new Facebook friends!}
I do facebook, but I'm trying to limit it to close friends and family. I used to have something like 400 facebook friends and they were mainly people I spoke to ONCE in high school and people I wasn't even friends with. And I felt like I was just stalking too many people and it was bad for my soul.

4. Favorite Christmas song?
Hmm...I LOVE the Dolly Parton/Kenny Rogers Christmas duets, but some of the songs are just plain creepy. I LOVE LOVE LOVE to sing 'O Holy Night' though. It makes me ridiculously happy.

5. Christmas tree: Real or fake?
I miss having a real one. We had one almost every year, but it's been 3 years since I had one that was over a foot tall. Since we aren't at home (or at my parent's home) on Christmas anymore, no real need for one, you know?

6. Hottest celebrity?
Hmm...Mac from It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia? I don't it weird that I don't really think about that?

7. Favorite restaurant?
My favorite expensive restaurant is Peter Luger's. And my favorite non-expensive restaurant is either Nomado 33 (NYC) or Sakura (Akron, Ohio). I guess I'm just a sushi girl.

8. Favorite magazine?
I don't really read magazines. I used to like Gourmet, but that's gone now.

9. Favorite thing to drink around the holidays?
I love Reisling! Mmmmm. But I need to get back on the wine/liqour. I need to fit into a bathing suit for Christmas!!

10. Favorite Christmas movie.
OH MY GOSH!!!!!!! IT'S THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL!!!!! It's a tradition for me to force anyone I know to watch it with me. I need to ask Steve to pull that out. :)


Baby Paxton is HOME!!!

How great is that?

I was going to put the Chip In for Baby Paxton, but it looks like it's over! They were able to raise $679 for Paxton and his Ma Ma. I don't know if it's too late to join in though. Maybe not? Cause if you do, you could win these little suckers.

If you want to read up on what Baby Be Blessed does, you can always read here.


  1. Parton/Kenny Rogers Christmas duets are fabulous!! HAPPY FMM!

  2. I have not seen The Muppet Christmas Carol in years! I'll have to get it for my kids! They will love it!

  3. Yeah, it's hard to justify buying a tree in those situations... I never decorate for Christmas because I leave to visit family. It's good to leave, but it's sad to miss out on decorating.

  4. Cerulean blue, I knew exactly what that was. I'm an adult, and I love to color with my daughter!...And The Muppet Christmas Carol! I'd forgotten that. Now I have to watch it. Thanks for the comment on my site.

  5. Yes... it's is Shakespear's in PA! I want to say Ellwood City. It's a 45 minute drive for me but always worth it. One time I got this pumpkin bisque soup. I thought it would be weird but holy cow! It was the best stuff I ever had!

    Small world that you would stop by my blog on Friend Makin Monday and totally know what I was talking about haha.

    As for facebook... I feel the same as you! I am constantly downsizing. I feel like the more people I have on there the more drama there is in my life because I have to read about EVERYONE'S problems. I like how you said it is bad for your soul... that's a great way to say it and I think I will borrow that from now on. :)

  6. Great list! I'm gonna have to make the kids sit and watch The Muppet Christmas Carol. I haven't watched that in a loooooong time.

  7. That this is why your fat is very interesting, might have to go back to that later :)

  8. The Muppets! Loved that show as a kid! I adore O Holy night too, such a beautiful song. Happy Monday!

  9. Muppet Christmas Carol is outstanding! That's one of the few versions of A Christmas Carol that I really enjoy. Well, that and Scrooged.

    Bill Murray is the epitome of the holiday season!

  10. I read through a bit of your are such a cool person! Very insightful. And open.

    Glad to meet you!
