    Love osb! Mine is scheduled for next week but I think we have very similar answers- Kelly Slater, JT. Peppermint/chocolate. Magic. Now if I had all those at the same time? That would be pure magic!

    Love Old School Blogging! I think I’ll have to join the holiday cheer this month. That first picture of you getting your yoga on in front of the tree is beautiful. And I love the paper chains on the tree. I need to make those with my 4 y/o. She’s into anything and everything that involves paper, scissors, and glue/tape, so that would be right up her alley. And who wouldn’t want to find JT under the mistletoe?!

    And that Christmas Cookie Extravaganza looks wonderfully insane. I need to have one.

    The Family Stone is a great holiday movie!!

      Yes! Please play along. The cookie extravaganza is wonderfully insane. I mean, you should see how they go all out on the cookie decorations! I’ll have to post pictures after this year’s event :-)

    Favorite magical moment from a holiday movie: In It’s A Wonderful Life, I love when he comes back and is running upstairs and the knob for the stairwell comes off in his hands (again) and he kisses it. LOVE THAT PART!

    I wanna go to Costa Rica too! I know so many people who have gone and loved it.

    I really love the paper chain on your tree. My kids and I need to make some of those for their Christmas trees in their rooms, so cute!

    And yes, mint chocolate chip is SO good!

    Thanks for linking up, girl! Merry Christmas!

    Fun! I love that seen with SJP, too. Great movie. And we are so grinch here when it comes to decorating–I should take the lead and do better, but it’s just not me. I love your pear tree idea. Kelly Slater? Also a good idea!

    Last night was my son’s band concert where they played a mix of Christmas and Hanukkah songs. After I was telling him how much I really love the traditional Jewish music–it’s so soulful, I guess. Anyhow, he laughed b/c as he reminded me, I really don’t like Christmas music. Maybe I was born to the wrong religion?

      haha. That’s pretty funny. I do love traditional Jewish music too. It’s really the kids who take the lead with decorating. My mom sent us a big box of stuff that the kids insist on displaying whereas I would prefer that they stay in the box :-)

      YES!! Best day ever. I swear, I was shaking like a 12-year old girl and could hardly speak when I met him! They held one of the ASP surf contests in NYC about 2 years ago.

    Ahhhh, The Family Stone is so good. A tearjerker, though.

    Kelly Slater is dreamy. I think I’d have to be all boring and unoriginal and answer Robert Downey Jr. to that question.

    I love Old School Blogging! And I love The Family Stone. I was just talking about it the other day. My husband and I saw on one of those dates when you see whatever movie is playing during the time that the babysitter is available. We had no idea what we were getting into. A real tear jerker but a great movie too !

    Oh, those paper chains on your tree bring back my own childhood memories! I think I made those and popcorn and cranberry garlands every year — or maybe it just took a really long time one year! ;-)
