five question friday



1. How long does your Christmas tree stay up?
I typically take it down on New Years Day but I've already started the process of taking it down this year. I've had too much time on my hands for one... and for two... we are having people over tomorrow and I'd rather have all of the Christmas stuff put away so that I don't have to worry about it later. I've already taken down the ornaments and B is taking the lights and tree down tomorrow.

2. Do you have plans for New Year's Eve?
Yes, I am hosting a small get-together. It will be just a few of us but I'm making all this food and I'm getting pretty excited about it. Plus, B got a firepit from Bass Pro Shop and it set up outside already.

3. Do you have any New Year's resolutions?
I've never really been one to make New Year's resolutions... if I have in the past, I'm sure I've never kept up with them. Sad, I know.

4. How did you spend New Year's Eve when you were younger?
I don't remember ever really celebrating New Years Eve when I was younger... except maybe shooting fireworks off with the neighborhood kids.

5. What was the best way you've ever spent New Year's Eve?
I think my favorite New Year's Eve 2002. I was living in Dillon at the time but me and Chapell, her boyfriend at the time, a few of his friends, and her cousin Whitney all made a trip here to the beach. We rented a hotel suite, went out to dinner, and spent the evening celebrating at Broadway. It wasn't anything extraordinary but I remember having lots of fun!

  1. 1. How long does your Christmas tree stay up?
    It usually goes up somewhere between Black Friday and December 10th and comes down sometime during the week after New Year's.

    2. Do you have plans for New Year's Eve?
    Yes, I am going out to dinner with my family.

    3. Do you have any New Year's resolutions?
    The ones my doctor would like me to have - exercise more, eat healthier. Easy to say, hard to put into practice.

    4. How did you spend New Year's when you were younger?
    I've been spending New Year's Eve the same way for about 30 years. I always go out to dinner with my family.

    5. What was the best way you've ever spent New Year's Eve?
    One that I remember is when we got an ice storm and every inch of the trees were covered in white with their limbs heavy and hanging across the roadways. It was a very beautiful sight. The type of snow you usually only see in holiday movies.
