    What are you getting your SO for Christmas? I got him a new Batman ring since the one he has is too big and he loves the thing. I may also get him a tie clip if I can find one I like in my price range.

    How often do you wash your hair? Like every other day or so. I don't like to wash it too often because it gets frizzy. The natural oils does it some good especially in the winter.

    --------------------------------------------

    BF asked for one too, and I told him no more than 3 game systems in the house. Right now we have the Wii, Xbox 360 and then Xbox One after Christmas. Granted, when he plays, I can get a lot done (watching Netflix, knitting, sleeping) but still, it's a lot of shit to dust.

    I tried to get into it, when the last Assasin's creed came out (the one set during the American Revolution) I wanted to play it. I got annoyed at all the freaking buttons. Then while I'm playing, I have Monday Morning Quarterback over my shoulder: "YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG, I'LL DO IT" so then I just gave him the controller. And that was the end of my gaming career.

  • What did you ask your SO for for Christmas this year? I didn't ask him for anything, but he insisted. I know he spent enough on the pony, so I asked for a lot of little things, I know I asked for some stuff from @livleighton's Etsy store, and some interchangable circular knitting needles.

    what should I do while we're snowed/iced in this weekend? Sex and board games.

    What pet would you have if it could be any animal in the world? I always say dolphin, but that could be expensive, so penguin for a back-up

    What did you ask your SO for for Christmas this year? Really nothing. I know he's saving up because he wants me to have that aquamarine ring I showed you ladies yesterday. He did however pay to have my grandmother's chain fixed on my necklace and I think he's doing something else tiny.

    How often do you wash your hair?
    I try to go every other day. Now that it's short and I curl it most days, I feel like I can get away with doing this. I have really oily skin/hair so it's hard for me not to wash it. 

    If you had $10000 to spend on a vacation with your SO/Spouse/FI/etc where would you go?
    Oh that's a tough one! I would love to go back to Africa but since we just did that, I guess I'll go with travelling around Europe. I want to see Ireland, Italy, and Spain. H and I have been to Germany and France but I'd love to go back to both. 

    What pet would you have if it could be any animal in the world? 
    A lion

    What should Coco do while snowed/iced in this weekend?
    Play board games, have a movie marathon with snacks, sexytimes

    What did you ask your SO for for Christmas this year? 
    Yesterday I hinted that I want black wool TOMS. Apparently they're sold out though

    What pet would you have if it could be any animal in the world? Realistically, a horse. But if I could have anything, a penguin and an otter. 

    @kait I've tried to get my mom to drink wine with me, but she usually doesn't like it. She'll do a little spritzer now & then, so I might try to get her to do that with some moscato or riesling over the holidays.

    1) What is your favorite gemstone?

    I love me some aquamarine…although the lighter sapphires are pretty awesome too!<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

    2) What's the best part about the holidays?

    I love eating the goodies, and exchanging gifts.  Especially with my FI.

    3) Favorite dessert?

    Oh man that’s a really tough one…I think my favorite is Loaded brownies, where you add marshmallows, chocolate and peanut butter chips, and chopped walnuts.  Then you serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream with a hot fudge and peanut butter drizzle and a small dollop of whipped cream.  Also it is super easy to make since you just add all of the stuff to a normal brownie recipe!

    4) Do (or did) you use mechanical or regular pencils?

    I prefer mechanical pencils, since I tend to write hard I need the thicker lead, but I HATE sharpening the pencils or when the point breaks in the middle of something.

    5) Sweet or dry wine?

    Meh, not a huge wine fan, but I prefer sweet.

    6) Favorite fast food place?

    I think Five Guys is my favorite.  Although I love me a Sheetz Run they aren’t exactly a fast food restaurant.

    7) Have you ever attended a masquerade ball?

    No, but I want to!

    8) What are your feelings on wine tastings?

    It’s cool, but since I’m not a huge fan I don’t really care.

    9) By @Swazzle What are you getting your SO for Christmas?

    I am getting my FI a bunch of things for Christmas.  His biggest gift is a portable FM transmitter so he can broadcast his favorite music to everyone in his office…I think the boy would have been a radio DJ in an instant if he felt a company would have hired him.  I am also getting him some practical gifts, like new work-out tees, and a fun Tetris themed desk lamp that lights up and can re-arranged.

    9) By @tuarceatha How often do you wash your hair?

    I wash my hair every other day.  Every day over dries it, but any more than two days and it looks and feels all greasy :/

    9) By @buddysmom80  If you had $10,000 to spend on a vacation with your SO/Spouse/FI/etc where would you go?

    I would take a month or two off from work and do a driving tour of America.  I would start by going to Maine, and then make my way across and back down and cover every state I could.  Then once I got home, I would fly to Hawaii and Alaska to both visit my best friend and then see the final state on the tour!

    9) Add a question!

    If money was not a problem, what is the ultimate gift you would want someone to give you?

    My Answer: I would just love to open the tiny box under the tree and find keys to a brand new car!  It doesn’t even need to be fancy, just something more reliable then what I have now…

    1) What is your favorite gemstone? Sapphire. My birthstone is the ruby and they usually look too pink to me. I like deep colored stones like dark blue sapphires and garnets.

    2) What's the best part about the holidays? Giving gifts. All the decorations. Setting up the Christmas tree with my family and then doing our own with my BF.

    3) Favorite dessert? This is so hard. I really really love ice cream. Also my mom's triple chocolate raspberry cake.

    4) Do (or did) you use mechanical or regular pencils? I prefer regular pencils. I'm constantly breaking the lead in the mechanical ones.

    5) Sweet or dry wine? Dry wine. I don't care for very sweet wine. Sweet wine was what got me interested in wine and my palate has developed? changed? a lot since then.

    6) Favorite fast food place? None. I never go out for fast food.

    7) Have you ever attended a masquerade ball? No but I think it would be a lot of fun!

    8) What are your feelings on wine tastings? I love wine tastings! I just wish we had more wineries in our area that offered dryer wines rather than moscatos and muscadine based wines.

    9) What are you getting your SO for Christmas? Haven't decided yet. I'm planning on making a visit to this woodworking shop in our area and quizzing the guys there on what I can get him that won't break the bank.

    10) How often do you wash your hair? Every single day, no exceptions ever. I can't stand going without washing my hair. I tried "training it" in college and couldn't get past how greasy, itchy, and dirty I felt.

    11) If you had $10000 to spend on a vacation with your SO/Spouse/FI/etc where would you go? BF and I discussed this the other day. We'd take it and do a two week long trip to Europe and just tour everywhere.

    What pet would you have if it could be any animal in the world? I'm so traditional. I really love just having my dog. After that, it's always been my dream to own a horse.
     
    NEW - Do you and your SO have any essential things that you just agree to disagree on? Or do you find a way to compromise on everything? For us we pretty much compromise on everything. However, BF feels incredibly strongly that there is nothing after death. I'm more hippy-dippy than he is and I do feel like we have a soul and that we're all linked in some way to everything and everyone. We're both ok with each other's feelings regarding the whole after death thing even if we disagree with each other.
