Ten on Tuesday: December


1.What do you order at Starbucks?

I’m a huge fan of the Caramel Machiatto (hot or iced). I just learned from a friend who works at Starbucks that I should order them “upside down”. Best. Tip. Ever. I also like Peppermint Mochas, and Caramel Frappuccinos, double blended.

2. Where is your favorite place to eat breakfast?

I don’t think we have a favorite breakfast spot. Just thinking about this question, I’m having dreams of brunch. Eggs, sausage, biscuits, hash browns, and French Toast. So really, any restaurant that can do all of those well.

3. Are you on Twitter? Why or why not?

I am indeed! I believe the official term for twitter is “microblogging” because you have to say what you want in 140 characters or less. It’s a great way to keep up with friends and colleagues. I find great links to blogs, recipes, and articles. And it’s easy to have a “conversation” right there.

4. What is your favorite Christmas movie?

I love Love Actually, and sometimes I forget that its set at Christmastime. I also love Miracle on 34th Street, but the newer one. And a Muppet Christmas Carol. It’s a classic. At least in my book.

5. Are you a good gift giver?

I like to think I am. But a little wish list never hurt to help drum up some ideas.

6.  What are your plans for the holidays?

Christmas in Savannah and New Years in Dallas.

7. How do you make the plans for the holiday? If you have a significant other, how do you decide which family to visit?

Since we got married, we’ve been doing “tradesies” with our families. Last year, we did Thanksgiving with his family and Christmas with mine. This year is the reverse. Next year, we hope our families will come visit us.

8. Have you ever been to New York during Christmas season?

Nope, but it’s on my list! I’d love to New York at Christmas, especially since Cent has never been to the Big Apple.

9. Are there any items that you are completely brand loyal?

Fossil purses and watches. I don’t know what it is, but I love their stuff.

10. Who is your favorite public speaker?

Does Ira Glass count? Because I love listening to This American Life, and while I know that technically he’s a radio show host, I think he totally counts as a public speaker. It’s public radio, right?

    I would love to see NYC at Christmas time too – but I would not be excited about the cold (hello- thermals in my suitcase!) Brandon also has never been – he would love it!
