Hi everyone, Debbie from Debbie’s Library tagged me to do The Winter Wonderland Tag. Be sure to check out her blog, very cool stuff. When I saw this I got extremely excited. I am one of those people who believe the Holiday season starts November 1st. When my local radio station started playing Christmas music on Friday at 4:05pm you better believe that I was ready just like I’m ready for this tag.
Do you like the cold?- okay okay okay okay. So unless you live in Russia, some of those most extreme winters are found in Midwest and upper North America. I do not like when the temperature is -7 degrees Fahrenheit and with the wind-chill it feels like -20 degrees Fahrenheit. I do not enjoy the cold where I can’t walk 5 feet outside with wet hair and have it be frozen. I do enjoy colder weather. I like being able to see my breath in the air and being able to go out comfortably with a hat, gloves, coat, and scarf. I don’t even mind when my nose is red from the cold. So, I like the cold, I just don’t like the extreme cold Chicago and Wisconsin choose to bestow on me most days from November to April
Favorite part about Winter- Going to the German Christkindlmarket every year with some family and friends after breakfast at Seventh on Heaven.
Does it snow where you live- DOES IT SNOW?!?!?!? All I can say is hell yes it snows.
Favorite clothing item in winter- Scarves. I can wear them with sweaters if it’s somewhat decent of a temperature outside or with my winter coats for when it’s a lot colder
Your favorite winter memory- Probably last winter when I came home from San Diego and seeing my sister because of how excited she was.
Favorite hot drink- Peppermint Mochas from Starbucks. Soy milk and no whipped cream of course.
Best winter book to read curled up in a blanket- Milk and Honey- Rupi Kaur
Best winter movie to watch- How the Grinch Stole Christmas, the real version not the cartoon one. It is hardly ever on anymore and it is always a treat when it does make its appearance on ABC family.
Do you do any winter sports (skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating)- Okay, story time.
A. No I cannot do any of these things. When I was in fourth grade, my best friend had her birthday at an ice skating rink. Her mom and my mom (she was our neighbor so it was convenient) piled 10 girls into their minivans and we made our way to the rink. Like most of the other girls who went, I also had never ice skated. A bunch of my friends and I stayed on the edge holding onto the railing so we could get the hang of skating. As I was trying to skate I stepped too far forward or the girl in front of me stopped quickly (I don’t remember it was 10 years ago) and basically we linked skates and both ended up on the ground. She was fine but I ended up falling directly on top of the other skate, piercing my butt. My butt was bleeding, my pants had ripped, I was crying, and finally ended up with a bruise the size of a softball and couldn’t sit for weeks.
Favorite Christmas/Holidays/New Year tradition- Every year on New Year’s Eve, I go to one of my two friends’ house and we do a secret Santa gift exchange and then wait until midnight to ring in the new year together with a ton of super cute photographs.
Hope you guys all take part in this and can’t wait to see what you guys say!
