We Almost Ate at Hooters...

1. Do you re-gift...and if so, do you have a re-gifting horror story?

I know that Oprah says it is a no-no, but I have re-gifted in the past. I mean, we like chips and dip, but we got 3 chip and dip sets for our wedding. If you can't figure out where to return it, you may as well pass it on to someone who can use it. No horror stories, but I did once sell an item at a yard sale that still had a wedding card attached to it, oops..

P.S. - If you gave us a chip and dip set for our wedding, yours is totally the one that we kept...

2. Do you know what you are getting for Christmas this year?

Yep, pretty much. I loathe surprises...hopefully everyone has remembered this and stuck to the list.

3. Who brings the most gifts in your family, you or Santa?

No kids here, so no Santa...Mom still gets us a stocking though, full of toiletries for the coming year. The Rev and I both had a momentary panic last month, when we realized he had gone through his ration of shaving cream (I caught him using mine, that's how I knew) and I had no more razors. We had to break down and buy them for ourselves. Sad day, indeed...but we're still using the toothpaste and deodorant that we got in last year's stocking.

4. What store do you love to buy jeans from?

The only thing I loathe more than surprises are jeans. I can never find a pair that fits "right," so consequentially, I never wear them. Denim trousers are as close as you will see me come to jeans. I am convinced that they either don't make them for my body type, or if they do, they cost way more than I would ever spend on one pair of pants.

5. Christmas meal: Big, All Out Meal or Snacks and Apps?

Big Christmas morning breakfast/brunch, tons of snacking throughout the rest of the day. When we lived in the city, after my family would load up to go home, the Rev and I would try to grab something to eat before we got on the road to head to his parents house (3 hours away). One year, our only open choices were a Chinese Buffet and Hooters--I told him it would be the only time I would offer to let him eat at Hooters--the boy is no dummy and we burped Chinese for the rest of the night!

I regifted the skinny Santa on the old fashioned, big wheel bicycle (that I mentioned last week). The person ultimately rejected it and it ended up on my mother's dresser.

The stocking full of toiletries is a great idea, something i'd like to get

i often have to try on 15 pairs of jeans before i find one that fits. i wear levi's but just because i grab 10 all in the same size and style doesn't mean all ten are going to fit. it's a huge effort to go jean shopping
