Sequins and Sea Breezes: Holiday Questionnaire

Holiday Questionnaire


Happy Tuesday loves! Yesterday was hectic so I didn't get to write the post I had originally planned but then I remembered this fun questionnaire Jennifer did so I figured that'd be a fun post to do before Christmas! I literally left my house yesterday morning at 6:30 am and didn't get home until 7:30 pm then I had to make dinner and make rice krispie treats for my work Christmas thing so needless to say, it was a LONG day! So on that note... here we go: 

A holiday tradition: I honestly don't really have any holiday traditions. For as long as I can remember my dad would make sausage balls around the holidays so I've kind of adopted that tradition. I actually stressed out over the weekend when I realized I hadn't made them yet so I ran out, got everything and made them Sunday!
What you'd like to see Santa bring you most this year:  There's not much on my wish list this year that I can't live without! I got to see my parents before the holidays so that was nice and definitely would have been something at the top of my wish list.

What's your go-to stocking stuffer: Probably lip balm. I have an obsession with the stuff and I know it's pretty helpful during the cool, dry winter season.
Who is hardest to shop for during the holidays: Hmm... I think it depends on the year. I do my best to pick up on clues and mentions throughout the year for gift ideas so it depends on who gave me the least to go on throughout the year. But usually guys. 
Favorite winter accessory: We don't get much of a winter down here so I'd have to say boots or scarves! I love getting to break out my boots and booties. I'm determined to get a cute beanie this year and then go some place cold so I can wear it. Or just rock it on a 60 degree day here LOL

Christmas tree lights; colored or all white?: All white, all the way. My entire tree is decorated in gold and silver ornaments with all white lights. 
Favorite holiday cocktail: Umm... probably cider. Or champs of course. But that's all year around!
Favorite holiday food: My sausage balls. Hands down.
Do you have a good white elephant gift idea?: Probably something funny. Who doesn't like a good gag gift, right?
Do you have a funny picture of you with Santa as a kid?: Nope, can't say that I do! 
Do you like candy canes?: YES! I love mint in general. But like Jenn I also love ribbon candy during the holidays.

Hot chocolate; marshmallows or no?: Wait. What's the point of hot chocolate without the marshmallows? Ok, I guess whipped cream works too but bring on the marshmallows!

Favorite holiday song: Hmm... probably All I Want For Christmas but there are a ton of great ones! I love Where Are You Christmas too.
Favorite holiday movie: How the Grinch Stole Christmas
A funny holiday story: 
Have you ever been on a sleigh ride?: No :( But I've ridden on an elephant. I know, it's not the same.
A fun holiday memory: The Osborne Lights are always my favorite holiday memory. I've been going to Disney to see those lights for years. I can't believe they're getting rid of them.

Hope everyone has a fabulous day!
