Monday Mingle: What's on my holiday wishlist?

If you'd like to join in the fun, do a short vlog on your blog answering the week's questions (however many you choose), post the above button on your site and link up at Eighty MPH Mom. Visit the other participants, learn about them and have fun! Trust me, if I can do it, then you can.  Plus you can send in your questions to Jennifer for the next mingle via the form on her site. Come on jump in!


I'm hoping the video will load, but if not I'm typing my answers as back up!

1. What three things are on the top of your holiday wish list?

I don't keep a wishlist as no one buys me presents. I'm used to that so it's not really a big deal. However I'd love to have a laptop. I don't need one, but would like one especially for traveling. If not the laptop then a smartphone. And a swingset for my children. I'd totally love to have one of these for my kids.

2. What are you doing for the holidays? Any special plans? Going out of town?

We aren't going out of town this year. We usually visit the parents in law in AZ, but they went to AK this year. So we are saving up to travel to AK early next year. 

No special plans either. We go where we are invited to parties or other social/family/charity events. Or stay home and enjoy the time with family.

3. What is your favorite holiday cookie?

I don't have a favorite holiday cookie. I love them all :) Cookies are cookies right? :) 

Thank you for visiting. I hope you will have a fabulous week!

  1. I would love a swingset to for my kids too! Right now we have 1 swing hanging from a tree. It works great but a swing set with a slide would be so much fun.

    I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family!

    I don't have a favorite holiday cookie either. I like whatever I make with my daughter!

    Merry Christmas Callie!

  2. I'd love to have a backyard to have a swingset for my kids. We just have a little backyard in our townhouse.

    My plans are simple too... I like it that way.

  3. Well if you have in-laws in AZ you will have to let me know next year woman! I live in AZ!! Would love to see and meet you in real life.

    A laptop and the playset are great gifts to want. Enjoy your holiday love!

  4. So nice to put a face with a name. Loved the vlog! I agree a cookie is a cookie :)

  5. Did they like the parade? My kids love them until their attention span gives out or the weather is too hot or cold.

    That's a good wish list. I've thought about a laptop, but then if I had one, I'd NEVER get off the computer. lol

    The kids would LOVE a swing set. :)

    COOOOOOOOKIES!!!!!!! Nom nom nom nom nom nom. I love cookies!

    Happy Holidays, Callie!

  6. thats so awesome you do charity work. nothing like a christmas parade. my camera is dead in the bottom of my purse.
    I wanna laptop too..
    happy hollidays, its nice to see you on the mingle :)

  7. Merry Christmas! Glad it finally loaded!

    figures when you need a camera you forget it. Sounds like me.

    i just want me and my family to have good health this Christmas season...

  9. Just got a laptop for my birthday. It is hard for me to get off. It gives me too freedom to surf and do other things at the same time. It makes life distracting. I still love it though. I hope you get one.

  10. I'd like to have a place to put a swingset LOL.

  11. this is cool-will try

  12. I LOVE parades! Too bad that you forgot your camera but hey you got the experience and that’s what counts!

    I am addicted to logging on too :D If I had money enough I’d send you some gifts this year.

    I think sometimes it’s easier to stay home for the holidays and get the rest in! Traveling can be such a hassle and usually we get sick when we travel.

    I LOVE COOKIES TOO! Our answers were the same LOL I love it!

    Have a wonderful Christmas Colette and I’ll see you when I see you too!

  13. Yay - it loaded! I love to see your mingles!

    Parades are a blast - you are a nice mom!

    I hope you have a wonderful holiday - I'll see you next year (or possibly before!)

    Thanks for mingling!

  14. I'm like you.. I love ALL cookies!
