Jolly Blogger Award


I received some Christmas love from Yari's Adventures  by being nominated for The Jolly Blogger Award! In order to keep this a little more interesting, I decided to answer these questions while on the phone with one of my very best friends and share her answers along with mine. We have been friends since the sixth grade and it was fun to see what her favorite things about the holiday are. So, instead of sending this out to other bloggers, I have decided to nominated every blogger that reads this and challenge them to share this little bit of fun with a friend. You never know what you might learn! ;) 

-Xo, Light & Love


1. Do you open your gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?

Christmas Day... as if this should even be up for debate. Santa flies all through the night! ;)

BF: Christmas Eve, sometimes before because people can't wait to give gifts to me. 

2. Favorite Christmas Song?  

I love the feeling the Trans-Siberian Orchestra gives me every time I hear them.

BF: O Little Town of Bethlehem 

3. Favorite Christmas/holiday Movie? 

The ever so classic Home Alone

BF: Four Christmases 

4. Favorite Christmas decoration?

The Christmas tree. It is so serene to sit around it all month. 

BF: My Christmas tree is usually put up before Thanksgiving.

5. Favorite Christmas Food?

Homemade oatmeal raisin cream pies...did I mention the cream cheese frosting!

BF: Ham and Rolls

6. Favorite Holiday/winter drink? 

Being the tea enthusiast that I am, this is the time of year I can't get enough Chai and Chai lattes! 

BF: Whiskey.... I mean hot cocoa. ha!

7. Snow or no snow?

Since the snow I get is more like a winter horror, I will go with no snow. But, I love looking at it. 

BF:  Snow, if it's going to be cold and you can't do anything then it should be pretty.

8. Do you send out cards or no cards? 

Not currently, but I have already been thinking about adding that for next year.

BF: I think about it every year!

9. Do you secretly still believe in Santa Clause?

Yes, I believe there is a Santa deep down in all of us.

BF: Yes, I agree.

10. Your favorite winter clothing item? 

Over-sized sweaters and boots! 

BF: My hoodie 

11. One beauty product that you cannot be without this winter? 

Cashmere Glow Ultra Shea Body Cream from Bath & Body Works. I just love the smell and how soft it keeps my skin that I stock up every season. 

BF: Chapstick

12. Best Christmas Memory? 

This one is hard... I graduated with my undergraduate degree right before Christmas and not only was it really special, but it was also one of my last good Christmas's spent still living at home. 

BF: Christmas 2012. It was the last Christmas with a very special person in my life.
