Get to know That Foodie Girl: A holiday survey

Hello foodie friends,

My apologies for the lack of posts lately, but I just had surgery on my foot yesterday (elective surgery) so I’m just trying to get over the pain etc and just get around! Since I will be on the couch for quite a while, I’ll have lots of time to work on my blog now. Yay!

I do have a Dallas restaurant review coming up, but for now, I just wanted to do a fun little “25 Questions” I found on a few other foodie blogs.

25 Questions: Holiday Style

hot chocolate. with peppermint.

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
he does both. sets them under the tree and also does some wrapped–all in the same wrapping paper.

Colored on the tree!

4.Do you hang mistletoe?

5. When do you hang your decorations up?
The day after Thanksgiving!

6. What is your favorite holiday dish (excluding dessert)?
Sausage cheese bread. My mom makes it every year and we have a few loaves made. I almost get more excited for the bread than the gifts!

7. Favorite holiday memory as a child?
Running to look at our stalkings. We have our stalkings in another room, so once we’ve ripped through our presents I remember being so happy there were still surprises left!

8. What is on your Christmas wish list?
A brand new camera. Perfect for the blog!

9. Do you open a gifts on Christmas Eve?
No, but we do “reindeer presents” starting 3 days for Christmas. My parents wrap up 4 gifts (one for each kid) and label each one with a reindeer name (Dasher, Prancer, Rudolph, etc.). We get to pick them up, shake them, etc, and guess which reindeer we are. We only get one guess each day, and if you guess right, you get to open the gift. Guess wrong, you have to wait til the next day. It’s always a fun tradition!

Lights, random ornaments & an angel on top!

Love it, but we don’t get it over here in Texas on Christmas!
