Me, Myself, & I: on Holidays, Quotes, and Starbucks

I'm lacking some original blogging content today as I sort through and edit more photos from our trip to Paris last August. So, thanks to Jenna & Breanna (among other fabulous bloggers), you get to learn more random nonsense about me. Stop your eye rolling. ;) Go link up and meet new bloggers!

Oh, and I forgot to mention this yesterday, but I'm offering 25% OFF ALL AD SPOTS from now until Friday in honor of this month of Thanksgiving. I'm so thankful for all of you, my smart and sassy readers! Use code GIVETHANKS and get your spot today! Oh dang, one MORE thing...if you haven't seen it already...go check out my Handmade Holiday Gift Guide!! It's filled with lots of fantastic handmade shops and gifts suited for every person on your shopping list this year! AND each shop has offered up discounts so you can save some serious cash this holiday season. Go shop till you drop, y'all! Wait, but first read these questions! (I'm all over the place today. Nap time is imminent.)

What are your top 5 favorite movies to watch during the holidays?
1) White Christmas (all time favorite...and an absolute must on Christmas Day!)
2) Home Alone (but just the original two movies)
3) Love Actually (Christmas and British people, be still my heart!)
4) The Holiday (there's nothing more to say but...Jude Law)
5) Elf (duh)

It's the month of giving thanks, what are you most thankful for?
-My sweet husband and weenie dog--my family back home in North Carolina--my friends, old and new--the opportunity to live in Germany--my health and the health of family--financial stability--my relationship with God--this blog and my wonderful, faithful readers--technology that helps keep us connected to our friends and family back home--and pizza.

If there were a quote or verse to describe your life, what would it be?

Who in your family are you most alike?
-If we are going off looks, I'd most definitely say my sister. Hands down. 9 times out of 10 people think we are twins. 
What do you think? 

But if we are going off personality...my cousin Ashley and I are insanely similar. My sister from another mister. She's just as quirky, adventurous, and nuts as I am! And yes, I was picking something out of her teeth at her sister's wedding and the photographer caught us. That's just how we roll. Oh, and thanks for the photo bomb Uncle Bob! Gotta love that guy.

What is your favorite drink order at Starbucks?
-In the fall (when I'm back in America)? A tall, non-fat, Pumpkin Spiced Latte, no whip.
-At Christmas? A tall, non-fat, Gingerbread Latte, no whip.
-All year round? A tall, non-fat, White Chocolate Mocha, no whip.
Whipped cream can get lost as far as I'm concerned. Now, who's up for Starbucks?

Happy Tuesday, friends!


  1. Yay for Love Actually!
    I may just need to blast our A/C, pretend we're somewhere cold and have a Hugh Grant Christmas movie (I count both Bridget Jones movies as Christmas movies) marathon!

    Also, I was so excited to see holiday cups here...but sad to see they offered none of the holiday drinks.

  2. Holy cow you and your sister are ridiculously similar! If I didn't already meet you in real life I wouldn't know who was who! Crazy genes you guys have!!

    Okay, now I really want to watch Elf while drinking a caramel apple spice, but I sent the movie to my husband yesterday. #FAIL

  3. People often think my sister and I are twins also, but she's three years older! And The Holiday? Definitely one of the best Christmas movies there is :) New to your blog! xoxo, eliza

  4. you guys look SO much alike! love the quote! xo annalizbeth

  5. OMG you and your sister ARE twins...especially that last photo. And I love your Christmas movies! Elf, Love Actually!

  6. Love your movie and drink choices! Where in NC are you from? I live in SC! It's nice to find other bloggers from my area, even if you're living in Germany... Which is so awesome! My boyfriend is in the military with a deployment coming up, it's unfortunate it's not somewhere nicer than Afg.

  7. Home Alone is so funny! Definitely in my top 10! Love it :)
    Happy Tueday!

  8. I love the quote and you and your sister could pass as twins. Yall are gorgeous :) Thanks for linking up with us!

    Happy Tuesday!

  9. love the Holiday!! and now I want sbucks!

  10. Definitely can't get down with a Starbucks drink sans whipped cream -- that's crazy talk! -- but love all the holiday movies you mentioned! :) "The Holiday" is a hands-down favorite. It's so underrated, and I just don't get it. All-star cast? Awesome plot? Beautiful scenery? Hot dudes? Nothing not to like!

    And yes, it's crazy how much you look like your sister -- whoa! I would definitely believe the two of you were twins. My sis is three years younger, and we look very little alike. Our skin tones and coloring are completely different, actually; I'm very dark-featured while she is incredibly fair!

  11. Oh my gosh! You and your sister really could be twins! My sister and I get mistaken for twins, too, but honestly that one kind of baffles me!

  12. All of your answers are great! You and your sister do look like twins!

  13. Love this post, I feel like you can really get to know people from this! Those starbucks drinks look yummy!!

  14. oh I'm so missing the pumpkin spice latte. They don't bring them out over here in Australia. But I did just discover that they have brought out the gingerbread latte so I am going to have to except that this is as close as I will get for now.

  15. I love The Holiday! This little girls talking in their british accent melt my heart every time. Ah!


  16. I like your blog. Love your pictures! You and your sis are crazy look-alikes. I just can't understand the no whip thing. I cry for you. What is it? Why do you reject such a delicious topping to the would-be perfect coffee? I myself am a peppermint mocha addict. Found you through the hop ;)

  17. Enjoy your top 5 movie list for Christmas. Mine is quite different but the ones you listed are definitely fun to watch.

    I can totally see how people think you and your sister are twins! Wow.

  18. You and your sister are GORGEOUS!! You do look ridiculously similar.

    The Holiday is probably my favorite holiday movie ever. I LOVE all the main characters and that's unusual for me!
