1. Do you prefer cotton, silk, or flannel sheets?

I love really comfortable sheets of all material.  My favorites were a set we got as a wedding gift and they were sateen, so super soft, but not shiny like satin.  Sadly the fitted sheet got ripped, but I still use the pillowcases with another sheet set that matches the color.

2. What time zone are you in?

Mountain STANDARD, daylight savings for me :)

3. What is your favorite part of the holiday season?

I think being with family and the whole ambiance that Christmas brings.  I love that feeling, it's the pinnacle of the year.

4. What is your favorite "wintry" drink? (It doesn't have to be an "alcoholic" drink!)

I love eggnog, but I also love my mother-in-law's apple cider:

6 cups of apple cider
3 cups of cranberry juice
1/4 cup brown sugar
6 cinnamon sticks
1 TBSP whole cloves

Add all the ingredients and simmer for at least 10 minutes, remove all the spices, then keep warm in a crock-pot, awesome for parties!  I'm sipping some at the moment!

5. In your opinion, what is the worst job in the world?

 I have a coworker who is in social services and he is being ostracized for a decision he made concerning the welfare of a child.  I think that would be incredibly difficult and emotionally exhausting, to try to make a difference and make the world a better place and be shunned for it.


  1. You live in Colorado? My dad lives in Denver. We are just biding our time, waiting until my husband's enlistment is up, and keeping our fingers crossed that he can get a job in his field at that time, so we can move to the mountains! Every home until Colorado is just temporary. :)

  2. I will have to try your mom's recipe, sounds yummy. Social Services would really suck at times. I know a police officer, and people don't always realize how much it can affect their personal lives to have such a public job. I can't wait for daylight savings time this year. It seems to be really late this year. Must be hard though to remember what time it is in places. Have a fantastic weekend!

  3. No daylight savings? You're so lucjy!

  4. I would def. not want to be a social worker! I think I would get too attached!

    And I love Christmas...everything about it at this point! :)

  5. I'm gonna have to try that cider recipe. I'd love to take the jump and make my own.

  6. oh THanks for linking up... I love apple cider.. Thanks for sharing this I so have to try it.. Happy Sunday..
