When I was a young child mom (Santa) bought me a stuffed horse. I slept with that horse for years. It has since been passed on to Erin โค
6. If you could have any Christmas wish come true, what would it be?
Other than like peace on Earth everyone to actually love one another, it would have to be to go to bed and wake up every morning next to the love of my life.

Jerusalem

    1. Thanks for the nomination! I meant those kind words, by the way ๐Ÿ™‚

      I almost did skip it but that knowing feeling of having to be real…said no, you need to do it.

  3. So fun! I enjoyed so much reading through your answers! And how sweet that you kept your stuffed horse and that now Erin is the proud owner of it – warms my heart! ๐Ÿ’• And cereal for a gift?! Youโ€™re onto something here. Iโ€™m doing my Christmas โ€˜shoppingโ€™ Friday for my kids – send help please! ๐Ÿ˜† Iโ€™ll have to do something along the cereal lines, for the husband. Although, Iโ€™d personal love that! Iโ€™m a โ€˜Honey Bunches of Oats with Almondsโ€™ kinda gal. I can eat it anytime of the day, everyday. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ
    Thank you for the nomination, so excited to do this!

      1. Love that! Did you ride, or were you just fascinated with horses?!
        Oh I know! My husband gets paid Friday, and between wanting to move to another place, having to save money for the move and gifts for the kids, we were finally able to budget and tackle the gifts with this check of his thatโ€™s coming – not the entire check now! Oh dear Lord no! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคฃ

        Yes! Itโ€™s soooo good! We always have some on hand. I recently saw Jennifer Lopez doing an interview, she said she eats chocolate chip cookies with milk at night – every night. Thatโ€™s the almond cereal for me! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ We all have our habits!

        1. Yes, I rode horses, collected model horses, drew horses, and read a lot of books ๐Ÿ™‚

          That’s awesome that y’all were able to budget the gifts. I can only imagine…

          I could definitely do Oreos and milk every night โค
