Five Question Friday

Head on over to Mama M's and join the blog hop!

1. What is your favorite part of a Thanksgiving meal?

Mmm its a toss up between the turkey and the mashed potatoes.

And I honestly love the Ocean Spray cranberry in a can that comes out still shaped like the can.

2. Are you a host or a guest for Thanksgiving this year?

Both! We had some extended family in town last weekend, so I cooked for the 6 of us. Yesterday we went to my in laws to eat and spend time with family.

3. When you think of one Thanksgiving tradition, what comes to mind?

Talking about what you are Thankful for. And the mom of the house spending 5+ hours in the kitchen making the entire place smell amazing!

4. You have two pieces of pie in front of you and you HAVE to eat you choose
pumpkin or pecan?

Pecan please! This jersey girl use to pronounce it "pea-can" and all the southerners laughed at me. I know now the correct pronunciation is "pa-con".

No offense pumpkin pie.. I just prefer you in cheesecake form, specifically from Olive Garden.

5. Are you a Black Friday Shopper?

As in wake up at the butt crack of dawn on a day I don't have to get up? No. I am not. I have gone mid day on a rare occasion, but the crowds, the messy stores, and every awful driver giving me panic attacks is NOT my idea of fun.

Maybe my attitude will change when our little man is old enough to want some high priced, sought after electronic, but right now, there is NOTHING I want or need bad enough to deal with the madness.

You can catch me on Cyber Monday looking for some steals online... and seriously folks.. you know that come the last week or two before Christmas, everything goes on sale in the stores...

Russell the Sheep - Holiday Gift Guide Week 1

I'll be linking up with Mama M. for the next 7 Mondays participating in her 'Holiday Gift Guide'


This week edition is: Off the Beaten Path Children Books.

My pick is a silly read that my 4.5 year old loves.

Russell the Sheep.
by Rob Scotton

A cute sheep has trouble falling asleep. He tries many different ways to help him fall asleep, looking for the perfect place, counting stars,and taking a walk. The pictures are delightful and funny. The story is a good length for preschoolers attention span. Check it out, you won't be sorry. And just maybe it'll help your bedtime routine go quicker too.
