We Want to Know Wednesday #12

Wednesday, December 7, 2011


If it's Wednesday, it is time for We Want to Know hosted by Mamarazzi, Queso, and Crazymama.

Here are this week's questions:

What is your favorite cookie to eat?

Definintely Nestle Toll House Cookies, warm right out of the oven.


Have you ever done a cookie exchange?

Yes, and they are so much fun!  I don't know whether tasting the cookies or actually getting and trying the recipes was best.  When the children were younger we all had more time for activities like that, but now I am just a Mommie Taxi Service!

How are you doing on your holiday shopping?

Not very well.  I got some done on Cyber Monday, but I will finish it and mail out of state presents by the middle of next week.

What is your holiday shopping style? (A little at a time, or power shopper? Early in the season or last minute? Online or part of the crowd?)

Mostly online, but I also shop at some of my local favorite stores.  I do not like crowds, and I never shop on Black Friday.

And a random seasonal 3 part question...
Light you put them on your house? What is your style and your fave kind to see? 

Here are the lights on our home:


I like subtle fairy lights, and I think colored lights should be banned.  ;P

But I also like displays like this:

Thanks, Queso, for this week's questions!

Until next time...

  1. beautiful home, I don't completely agree about the colored lights, I much prefer the white ones but when driving around at night I do enjoy the colored ones, I'm right there with you about the cookies though, mmmmmmm.

  2. I like any kind of lights, but I'm really liking the colored LED lights--the colors are so intense, they look cool.

  3. Your light display is beautiful!! And that cookie picture kind of made me want now!! haha!

  4. OoOoOo.....I love your fairy lights! I'm all about the "less is more" approach, especially on cool brick homes. :)

  5. Your lights look lovely.

    Thanks for linking up
