So. Here we go.
1. Are you a Black Friday Shopper?
I haven't been in awhile on that day. If i happen to make plans for shopping that day, then it's fine & all. But if not, that's okay too. I remember going one year in particular & loving it - we had a great time. I LIKE shopping with crowds & Christmas music, all that excitement in the air! The ONLY thing i am AGAINST on Black Friday is getting up at 5 am (or worse!) to stand in line for some toy. Um, no. I really don't think i will do that even when i have kids! I just think there is no toy that my kid HAS TO HAVE. I don't know. Maybe i'll change my mind after i have kids. But i like my sleep. For example, i am a Twilight fan. I can't wait to see New Moon. But was i standing in line for a midnight showing Thursday night (Friday morning)? HECK NO! HA! I NEED & CHERISH my SLEEP! Haha! Same with Christmas Shopping. =)
2. What was your favorite childhood toy?
Oh, but there were so many!! A child of the 80's? What do YOU think?! Here were a few:
I LOVED My Little Ponies! I had a whole tin of them & loved to play with them!
POPPLES! Do remember these?!
Cabbage Patch Kids! (Gosh, now i got the theme song stuck in my head! HA!)
3. Favorite Christmas Movie
Yep. I'm a sucker for the old classics. My favorite is Miracle on 34th Street. The original one.
4. What is your "MUST HAVE" item on your Christmas List this year?
Well, i blogged my wish list awhile back, but none of them are "i must have this!" items, really. Just things i would like. I'd say the "must have" item would be the camera, but that is definitely something i'm going to have to save up for on my own! I would love some new pj's, like the one i mentioned in the wish list blog. Or the Emma bowls.
5. Do you go all out with decorations or do you keep it simple & classy?
Last year was my first Christmas to really decorate. The years before i was on my own & i always let my roommates do that! Last year we had JUST gotten married when it was time to start thinking about Christmas decor, so we really didn't do too much. I put up a wreath & our stockings & a tabletop tree. It's just a mini one & we put white lights on it & some tiny ornaments. I think it was simple & classy. It looked nice. We were planning to get a regular tree this year, but recently decided we'd put up the mini one again! I think we'll keep using the mini-tree until we have some kids!! =)
So there's all of my answers to the 5QF! =)
