1. Is there a special dish you prepare that you are famous for?
Hmm... I don't think I'm "famous" for anything cooking wise??  Family can chime in, but I can't think of anything.  :)

2. Are you (did you) go Black Friday shopping ?
Online currently.  :)  Bath and Body Works had their wallflowers for $5 per 2 pack vs normal $12.50 AND then I found a 20% off coupon online so I got 8 wallflowers and 5 hand sanitizers for about $30. Woooot!  Right now I'm looking at The Limited's website - everything is 50% off.  That's huge for The Limited - I really love their dress pants but I refuse to pay full price.  

I've gone once in the middle of the night (aka 4 am) - never again. Nothing is worth that much to me.  I've gone in the past later in the afternoon and it wasn't soo bad.  I just still prefer sitting in my comfy clothes, eating pie and shopping on my MacBook. 

3. What are your strangest holiday traditions?
I don't think we have any "strange" traditions?  Lucas' family sings Christmas Carols on Christmas Eve - I thought that was strange when I first experienced it. Now its pretty normal to me.  

4. Pecan, apple or pumpkin pie? 
Oohhh, I've recently started loving Pecan Pie - I don't know why because I don't like nuts in my food.  I've always been a lover of pumpkin pie - in fact Mom whipped out a pretty good one this year.  I just had a piece for lunch.  :)  Apple - eh, I can take it or leave it.  

5. When will you put up your Christmas tree?
I always do it Thanksgiving weekend.  I'm thinking Saturday night or Sunday.  We'll see how motivated we are!


  1. I'm pretty stoked for your pulled pork at Mark Family "Christmas". Don't know whether it comes straight out of the bucket into the crock pot or if you do it from "scratch" or what, but it's delish!

  2. LOL - I guess my pulled pork is decent. Funny thing is I put different seasonings in it every time. :)
