me. myself. and I [5]...

1. What are your top 5 favorite movies to watch during the Holidays?
-Polar Express [goodness that movie never gets old!]
-How the Grinch stole Christmas [the "real" people one!]
- Happy Feet [hey, it has snow in it right?!]
- [um...is it bad that I've never seen It's A Wonderful Life...yeah, true story...]

Kid at heart?!

2. It’s the month of giving thanks, 
what are you most thankful for?
The hubby and I were just talking about this last night! There are always the cliche answers, and although all of those ring true [every single day] I'm extrememly thankful this year for my health, financial stability, and the ability to travel. It has been a little crazy the past couple of years for us, and we have been so incredibly lucky to be able to get back and forth to Idaho to be near family, to let Hudson know his Nana and Papa, and to look after our house. Can I get an "amen" for southwest rewards points!?

3. If there was a quote or verse to
 describe your life, what would it be?

4. Who in your family are you most alike?
I have seriously been thinking about this question for weeks...and still I can't come up with an answer.
And although I'm a twin, it just doesn't come that easy.
But I can only hope that I'm as...
- adventurous and risk-taking as my Dad.
-hard working and determined as my brother.
-patient and self-less as my Mom.
-Smart and beautiful [inside and out] as my sister.

5. What is your favorite drink to order at Starbucks? 

Caramel Frap...
Chai Tea...
Steamed Milk...
or a Caramel Apple Cider...
Honestly, it depends on who I'm with, where I'm going, what I'm wearing,
the weather outside, and how I'm feeling...pretty much a check off list! :)


  1. My favorite drink is iced caramel macchiato and second is caramel frap! I love starbucks. Yes my husband and I need to make a list of things I am thankful for. I think it is very important to say thank you :)

    Following you from GFC blog hop. Pls kindly follow back if you don't mind. Thank you! :)

  2. Such a fun post! Hope you have a great Thanksgiving!


  3. Cute post! I love Elf too! Have a great Thanksgiving!

  4. I love the Grinch and Polar Express! Elf is good too! :)

  5. I loved this post. Polar Express <3 and the Grinch! A woman after my own heart. :)
    My favorite Starbucks drink is the White Chocolate Mocha with no whipped cream and skim milk. Yummo!

  6. The grinch is mine and my husbands favorite christmas movie as well. I bought it for him last year at Christmas because he wanted to watch it. That way we could watch it every year for Christmas...yay! :)

  7. love the quote and doesnt elf just make you happy! xo annalizbeth

  8. I love the "real people" Grinch movie better than the cartoon one! I also loved your answer to #4! That you included a little bit of everyone!

  9. I love your movie picks! I am really wanting to start watching Christmas movies now.
    That was so sweet that you listed such wonderful attributes of each of your family members :)
    I have a funny feeling I am going to be headed straight to Starbucks this morning after I get ready.

  10. I really think you'd enjoy It's A Wonderful Life. It's a great holiday classic. I loved Happy Feet. I'll, admitit -I cried. =]

  11. Ok! It is your duty, after becoming a new friend of mine that you must see It's a beautiful life. It is by far one of the loveliest movies everrrrr! Deal?


  12. Love your answer to number 4!!! Your family sounds like a great group of people.

  13. I've never seen It's A Womderful Life either. Thought I was the only one!

  14. Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday. This was the perfect post for me to get to know a little about you!! Can't wait to catch up and read your older posts.

  15. Elf is fantastic. Never gets old :) I did a post a few days back about some of the things that I am thankful for, and I love reading other people's lists! Thanks for sharing! Ps, my new fave starbucks drink is a cinnamon dolce latte with an extra shot of espresso. Yummmm :) In the summer I like iced coffee with a pump of caramel.

  16. First, I LOVE your wedding pic! Second, "Buddy the Elf, What's your favorite color?" I could watch Elf all day long. Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  17. I too have never watched It's a Wonderful Life... well at least not all the way through...and if I have watched it all it's been in different segments throughout the years (it's sooo long....)
    I still have yet to watch Elf all the way through though... it will get done. :)
    Love your wedding picture!

  18. aw I so didn't know you were a twin and your Starbucks drink list is so yummy :) You are just too cute! Thanks for linking up!

    Happy Tuesday!

  19. adorable answers.. :) i loved reading them. by the way, thanks for being my newest follower! I am following your blog too.. :)

  20. My drink of choice varies too bust most of the time its an iced double tall soy no whip mocha! ha! I am loving peppermint right now, though!

  21. I have never seen "It's a Wonderful Life" either. Also, I have only seen parts of "Elf". I have never watched the whole thing. I'm surprised they let me blog, given the severity of that transgression.

    Your family sounds incredible! So glad you can appreciate each and every one of them.

  22. Love your wedding dress! And I can totally relate to your indecisive drink answer, haha!


  23. Howdy! I understand this is somewhat off-topic but I
    needed to ask. Does building a well-established blog like yours require a large amount of work?
    I'm brand new to blogging but I do write in my journal every day. I'd like to start a blog so I can
    share my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if
    you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers.

    Appreciate it!
