1. Share your Christmas Eve traditions.
Christmas Eve is always spent at the Farmhouse with my mom's side of the family. After we eat and open presents, and just generally hang out, my immediate family goes back to my parents', where we open our presents from my parents, which always includes pjs. I usually stay the night there and get up early and go to Mass with my mama.
2. What was the best book you read in 2010? (we're not going to include The Bible here)
I'm a huge Jen Lancaster fan and her newest book, My Fair Lazy, was pretty great! I wish I had done a lot more reading in 2010! Maybe 2011 will teach me better time management?
3. Do you have pets and if so do you allow them on the furniture?
Delilah pretty much goes anywhere she wants! I'd like to think that I could stop her from getting up on things, but I totally know better.
4. What event from 2010 are you most thankful for?
I'm thankful for so many things that I don't even know where to start! There have been so many wonderful things in my life this year. I'm so thankful to officially have my sister-in-law in our family, for great changes at my job situation. So many blessings!
5. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before.
This was the year for me to begin developing my skills as an event planner. I still have a lot to learn, but I think that Project Graduation went off without a hitch. And I helped with Michael and Lauren's wedding, which was certainly a learning experience for us all! But it was beautiful (if hot) and at the end of the day, they were still married no matter what.
6. Brussel sprouts...friend or foe?
Never actually had one. Though I don't really feel the need in my life for them either.
7. Who would you nominate for man/woman of the year?
I kind of think this man/woman of the year stuff is for the birds. I mean, there are certainly people we all recognize that do great things because of their position. But I also think that being able to have influence comes with a position of power. I think that the people we really need to recognize are the ones who work tirelessly in their community to make the world a better place, even if no one ever sees or knows about it. Those are the people that need to be honored by the rest of us.
