Hoo Are You? Tuesday

So this is actually LAST week's Hoo Are You...but I was a little busy last week with a very sick toddler, so please forgive the late posting!

1. What is your favorite part of the holiday season?
a. spending time with the family
b. giving and receiving gifts
c. sleeping
d. eating and drinking

Definitely A although I enjoy all 4 things. But spending time with family is by far my favorite part of the holidays!
2. What is your least favorite part of the holiday season?
a. spending time with the family
b. giving and receiving gifts
c. sleeping
d. eating and drinking

Of those, if I had to choose a LEAST favorite, it would be the gifts, only because that's not reason for the season for me...

3. Do you bake goodies during the holidays? If so do you eat them, give them away or both?
Always, Always, Always... And I eat them and give them away, both. Some as gifts, some as extra treats for special people and some just because. And I absolutely try and give away more than I eat! 
4. Are you already for Christmas?
I was mostly ready this year. If my toddler hadn't come down sick the week before Christmas I would have been completely ready, but caring for a 2 year old with sinus and ear infections kinda took precedence...
5. What activities do you do on Christmas day?
We have a fun moment where our daughter (and next year both was too young this year!) come down the stairs to see what Santa left them, then we have a yummy brunch of some sort followed by play time with the new toys and some clean up, then a mid-afternoon nap followed by a yummy Christmas dinner. This year it was all at our house for the first time and we had a great time!

Hoo Are You? Tuesday

Are you ready for another week of Hoo Are You!


1. Do you like to listen to Christmas music?
Yep.  Sometimes find myself turning on the Christmas music in July...especially when overly hot in Texas!
2. Are you one of those people who get all their shopping done early, or do you do most of it in December?
Well, I TRY and get it done throughout the year, but with two littles in the house, it's not always possible.  Almost done this year though!
3. Do you set a budget on how much you spend on each person?
Sort of...Nothing concrete, but we do try and stay within a certain amount
4. Do you send out Christmas cards?
Absolutely! And I LOVE to get them in return as well!
5. Do you enjoy this holiday season or does it stress you out?
A little of both I think. Sometimes I forget the reason for the season and that's when I get stressed, but if I stop and take the time to remember why we celebrate and who we're celebrating, I regain my sense of peace.

Hoo Are You? Tuesday

It's time for another "Hoo Are You?" Tuesday...


1. Do you ever burp out loud in private or public?
Not if I can help it, and then only if I excuse myself afterward.
2. How often do you get sick each year?
Truly sick, like from the Flu, not usually at all, but allergies and sinus keep me sicker than I'd like quite a bit as do the occasional migraine.
3. Would you rather paint a room in your house yourself, or have someone else do it for you? I get to choose the color? If so, then let someone else paint, as long as they get it done!
4. If you get 30 minutes to yourself, what do you do?
First choice: Sleep! Second choice: Read or FB :)
5. Do you allow people to wear shoes in your house?
Yes, although I don't mandate it nor do I personally wear them
