I've been Tagged!!!

Southern Cinderella has tagged me in a little game! I have to answer her 8 questions, then tag 8 people to answer 8 NEW questions that I make up :) Sound fun? Come join the fun!

Here's Southern Cinderella’s questions that I have to answer.

1. What is your favorite holiday and why? Any traditions that you have that make this holiday special?
CHRISTMAS – I love this holiday. Not for the gift, but for spending time with family and friends. For the past 10 years my parents have hosted Christmas Eve at their house. We have a big feast with some not so traditional traditions. My dad and mom will take anyone in that does not have a family to share the holidays with. I think in total we have 12 people that are not family that come every year. My dad always says, “Family is not always blood”. And that is so true for us. The guys have started a tradition that is now known as Christmas Tequila shots. Basically the night flows like this. Everyone arrives to the house around 4pm. We have cocktails and appetizers. Then we all go to church together. After church it is dinner time. Then we have more cocktails, dessert, and a ton of laughs.

Christmas day J and I wake up exchange gifts together and head to my parents house. We open gifts with my sister and parents. Then after we are all done with gift, we call my dad’s side of the family over. We eat monkey bread, drink spiked coffee and open more gifts. After those gifts are done we eat this egg casserole that grams makes every year and fried apples. I love this holiday!

2. What is a favorite Halloween candy that you liked as a kid, or even one you like now?
I have no idea what they are called but they look and taste just like candy cigarettes. Those things are so yummy!

3. If you had $100,000,000.00what would you do with it?
Ok I am super practical, so my list are things that I would love to have now!

*J and I would start our own businesses.

*Buy J and me a nice home with… 4 bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, a large dining room so seat everyone in our families, a man’s room for J, a craft room for me, a dream kitchen, laundry room, living room, a family room, 2 door garage with a little extra room, and a nice size back yard. That is our dream home!

*Then I would get the truck he has been wanting for a long time, the Nissan Titan. I would get me the perfect mommy SUV, the Honda Pilot.

*I would give our siblings enough money to buy a home, or build on to the home they have now.

*Set money aside for college tuition's for our future kids and my Nephew (Carson) and Niece (Abby).

*Then I would by a home in the mountains. A place that any of our family and friends could use for a vacation.

*Put money away so J and I would never have to worry about medical bills, or dept.

*And spend money on all of the MAC makeup, Tiffany Jewelry, and LV purses I wanted 

4. What's your favorite food to get at a festival/fair?
One of the biggest festivals that we have in Florida is the Strawberry Festival. They make everything you can think of with strawberries. I would have to say my favorite thing to get at the one is the Super Strawberry Shortcake! It is so delicious!!!

5. What's your dream outfit consist of? Including accessories!!
I can honestly say that I have never thought of this question. I love dresses; it’s they only thing that makes me really comfortable. So I think my dream outfit is a sundress (blue) with brown cowboy boots. Then I would style it up with gold accessories.

6. If you were given a round trip ticket to anywhere, where would you go and why?
Ireland. From what I here it is breath taking, the people are so nice and love to have fun, and it is cold! I hate being hot (I know, I live in Florida!). My dad went there for the military once and said it was beautiful. Everywhere you went had a view.

7. Why did you start blogging?
Because I am a military brat and we moved around so much. I would try and keep all of my friends up to date but it was not that easy. So I figured I am going to start a blog, that way they can read it when they want to.

8. What's your favorite celebrity hairstyle?
Reese Witherspoon, Carrie Underwood & Jennifer Aniston
