    1.  What are your Christmas plans this year?
    We are driving up north (45 min away) to spend Christmas afternoon/evening with my mom's side of the family (aunts, uncles, grandma, cousins, etc).

    2.  Do you take turns with FI and your Families?  How do you ration "family time?"
    We are supposed to, but this year we couldn't go to GA to spend time with FI's family because we are saving $$$$ and paid time off for the wedding and honeymoon.  We alternate Christmases between our two families, but spend Thanksgiving with mine every year since they are local.

    3.  What did you get FI for Christmas this year?
    I got him a framed Tim Lincecum collage, Lincecum went to UW and FI is a big Giants fan, and a Huskies fan... so I thought it was something good and unexpected.

    4.  What do you think he got you?
    I think he got me something naughty...
    Embarassed He mentioned that it is something I shouldn't open in front of my mom.

    5.  Did your office have a Christmas party this year?
    Nope, we haven't had one for the past couple years due to budget cuts.

    6.  What are your NYE plans?
    Staying at home with FI and the furbaby, FI has to work on NY day.

    7.  When was the last time you went out/hung out with friends/partied/etc?
    Apple Cup, went to a friends house, it was fun.  I NEVER go out any more, it's sad.

    8.  What's is your favorite restaurant?
    I really like Bandolero in the Tangletown area, FI and I have been going there for brunch and Happy Hour.  It reminds me of a more casual version of Peso's.

    9.  What is the ugliest BM dress you've ever seen?  Online and/or IRL

      These that I found online months ago, and emailed my BMs as a possible dress idea/inspiration Wink  They are all kinds of shiny, easter-themed types of wrong!


    10.  What do you think of the show Bridalplasty?
    I like it, but I like trashy reality shows.  I'm rooting for the girl who got the boobjob, Kristin, I think...

    11.  Why don't you post on this board more often?
    The board is just slow in general, but I try my best to post on most of the threads and start my own on occasion

    12.  What type/color of shoes are you wearing right now?
    Boring black work flats, with a little black floral detail on the toes.

    13.  What is your favorite Starbucks/ etc drink?
    A Grande Nonfat Dirty Chai

    14.  What are you having for lunch today?
    Bagel with cream cheese

    15.  Who's making your dinner tonight?
    FI, it is extremely rare for me to cook.  He gets home way earlier than I do, and he is a way better cook than me.

    16.  What is your regular Wednesday night show you always watch?
    Top Chef-Champions round on Bravo

    17.  What's your guilty pleasure?
    It was watching Sing Off, but the season is over now... so Bridalplasty?

    18.  Do you think it will snow again this winter?
    No, at least I REALLY hope not.

    19.  How are you wearing your hair today?
    Ponytail, it was the best I could do, my hair is having an off-day.

    20.  Who is your favorite poster and why (on this board or another)?
    jennlin, she's been around the longest and still posts sometimes, and I admire that.

    OMG... Love this! I love long polls/random surveys. They make me happy :o)

    1.  What are your Christmas plans this year?
    FI and I are having my parents over for dinner. That's all. But it will be our first year making Christmas dinner. We went shopping last night and it will be delicious!

    2.  Do you take turns with FI and your Families?  How do you ration "family time?"
    Not really. Last year we spent Christmas with FI's family. Ideally we'd like to do that every other year but there may be some years where it's too expensive. His family lives in Alaska and it's super costly to get there.

    3.  What did you get FI for Christmas this year?
    I got him a laser level, a new bag for disc golf, and a gift card so he could buy a bunch of stufff online that I didn't order in time.

    4.  What do you think he got you?
    It's from Amazon and I'm hoping it's a Kindle, but I'm not sure.

    5.  Did your office have a Christmas party this year?
    Yes, but I didn't go.

    6.  What are your NYE plans?
    None right now. We stayed home last year so it would be nice to go out!

    7.  When was the last time you went out/hung out with friends/partied/etc?
    We had a Christmas party at our house on Saturday, but it was small/low key. It's been a long time since I've gotten dressed up and gone out.

    8.  What's is your favorite restaurant?
    Maya's on Rainier... best Carne Asada.

    9.  What is the ugliest BM dress you've ever seen?  Online and/or IRL
    Okay I had to Google this:



    But on a sidenote, check this out:

    10.  What do you think of the show Bridalplasty?
    I actually haven't watched it. It doesn't interest me.

    11.  Why don't you post on this board more often?
    Nobody responds. Except for like 5 of us... and I appreciate those 5! It's sort of weird how everyone just dropped off the face of the board!

    12.  What type/color of shoes are you wearing right now?
    None, I'm at home.

    13.  What is your favorite Starbucks/ etc drink?
    I don't drink coffee, but at Starbucks I LOVE the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate. However, I have to say, it doesn't hold a candle to 7-11 Hot Chocolate. I'm not even kidding :o)

    14.  What are you having for lunch today?
    I had a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich.

    15.  Who's making your dinner tonight?
    My mom, we're having Lasanga at my parent's house.

    16.  What is your regular Wednesday night show you always watch?
    Ooh, I don't even know! I think Wednesdays are DVR catch up days.

    17.  What's your guilty pleasure?
    This is so terrible: The Bad Girl's Club.

    18.  Do you think it will snow again this winter?
    Yes, it can snow all it wants except for the week before and after February 20th :o)

    19.  How are you wearing your hair today?
    Ponytail

    20.  Who is your favorite poster and why (on this board or another)?
    Ooh, good question! I guess I have to agree that I definitely appreciate the ones who've been around and still post every once in a while. They've got good advice!

    4.  What do you think he got you? I'm hoping hoping! for a kindle. He procrastinated on my stocking this year so I know that everything came from Amazon so he could do two-day shipping :).
