Me Myself and I

Hello, hello!

Today isn't a usual post day but it's a short week and I wanted to get in with the lovely ladies who host the Me Myself & I link-up.

I think this is a great idea since I enjoy reading the random tidbits about other bloggers. And I feel as though this gives you a more diverse "picture" of me. Things I wouldn't normally mention or talk about.

Here are this month's questions:

1) What are your top 5 favorite movies to watch during the holidays?

This is super easy...
a - The Year Without a Santa Claus
b - A Christmas Story   
c - How The Grinch Stole Christmas
d - The Holiday 
(the one with Cameron Diaz and Jude Law)
e - Nightmare Before Christmas 
(oh it totally counts)

2)  It's the month of giving thanks, what are most thankful for?

Other than the generic health, job, roof over my head, etc. I am truly most thankful for my niece. It's been a very difficult year and she has truly been a blessing in disguise. I look at her adorable little face and I see hope that things will eventually get better. I'm also thankful for my boyfriend. He has truly been a rock this year and I'll forever be grateful to him.

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

"Even through the darkest days this fire burns always"

This quote is very near and dear to me. They're lyrics from a favorite band (do you know it?) and I feel it's a testament to who I am.

4)  Who in your family are you most like?

My mom - no question. We look and sound alike. We have the same fashion tastes/dislikes and the same odd sense of humor. I'm happy to call her my friend.

5)  What is your favorite drink order at Starbucks?

Hmm... I'm not a Starbucks junkie like most of you but I do have a favorite or two. In the summer I'm kind of obsessed with the green tea frappucino. In the fall it's all about pumpkin spice latte of course. And in the winter I'm a big fan of the peppermint latte. if I want regular coffee, you'll find me at DD.



    One of my favorites of all time. "Snow Miser/Heat Miser" may be my favorite Christmas song. It's such an off-the-radar movie. Everyone freaks out over Rudolph and Frosty and I'm always like, um, I'll take the Miser Brothers, thanks.

    How the Grinch Stole Christmas (animated, I'm assuming) has always been my favorite, though. My Twitter bio should probably just read "has all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile," because obviously, I do.

    I just relate to the Grinch. Some people are Jack Skellington fans. I get that. It's totally a Christmas movie. But me? Nope. The Grinch is my holiday anti-hero who redeems himself after wrecking Christmas, thankyouverymuch.

  2. We are almost spot on with our Christmas movies! Love this post. You and your mom are so beautiful! I'm not a big Starbucks fan either - I go maybe... once a month. ha!

  3. This Fire Burns, Killswitch Engage! I think. I love that song.

    think I'm yet to go into a Starbucks. I just can't bring myself to do
    it. You can't make me go in there. Oh and Nightmare totally counts as a
    Christmas movie. The Grinch is awesome too. 

  4. YAY!!!!!  Someone who knows it!!!!  I love it too. That line is tattooed on my back. Don't worry about starbucks, you're only missing overpriced flavored coffee. No one goes in there for a "cafe americano".

  5. Aww thank you! That's about how often I go... if that.

  6. You have just solidified yourself as my blog bff. NO ONE knows who the Miser borhters are. As I was looking for a picture of them I of course was singing it. My mom bought me the movie last year for Christmas.

    Animated. Always animated.

    Isn't it wonderful when your mom becomes your BFF? I love that! Great movie choices. After hearing everyone's Starbucks favs, I'm definitely heading out to try the Peppermint Mocha... noms!

  8. You and your mom look so much alike! You're even wearing similar outfits in that picture! That's awesome that you are able to call her your friend as well :)

  9. I love the Green Tea Frapp! I actually used to drink those when I was hungover. Haha. You and your mom are so cute!

  10. Let me know how you like it!!
