Mountains, Christmas Morning, and Persuasion {AMT}

1. Beach or Mountains? Where would you rather be?
I do not know that I can choose between the two. I love both of them. I guess if I had to pick one over the other for the rest of my life I would choose the mountains, although I would miss the beach.

2. Which is more fun: Christmas Eve, or Christmas morning?
Christmas morning, of course. Waking up with my family, watching my boys open their gifts, eating a yummy breakfast, and then going to Mass. It is the best morning of the year, well, other than Easter morning!

3. What’s the most embarrassing childhood outfit you remember wearing?
I do not remember ever feeling embarrassed while wearing and outfit, but I am sure there were many times that I wore a skirt without a slip, but I needed a slip because the material appeared sheer in natural light. I cringe when I think about it!  

4. Your house is quiet, you don’t have to do work (housework included). What do you do?
Read a book, write a little, or turn on a movie or audio book and listen to it while I knit, cross stitch, or craft jewelry. 

5. What movie do you want to watch when you’re feeling under the weather?
Persuasion   I love it! It always makes me feel a little better when Anne's silly sister Mary complains, "I am so ill I can hardly speak." Then a few minutes later she is talking nonstop and stuffing her face full of ham! Anne really does cure her when she comes to visit. 

6. Did you have an American Girl doll when you were little? If so, which one?
No. I had Cabbage Patch Kids, My Little Ponies, and Strawberry Shortcakes, and Barbies.

  1. You know, I said I liked beaches better, but to be honest, I've never been to the mountains. Perhaps I might rethink that one day. :)

    Glad to have found you from Answer Me This!

    1. Hi! I love the beach! We live about 15 minutes from the coastline, but the fancy vacation destination beaches are about 50 minutes away. The mountains are a couple hours away, but we try to visit them as often as we can manage the time away. :)

  2. I've never heard of Persuasion...but it look like a movie I would like! I always watch movies like that with my sister when she visits so maybe we can see about watching that one this summer!

    1. It would be fun to watch with your sister! Persuasion is my favorite Jane Austen novel, and the 1995 movie version that I linked to is by far the best adaptation, in my opinion.

  3. Now I want to see Persuasion too. :) And I totally agree about the mountains!

    1. Amanda Root and Ciaran Hinds are wonderful as Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth. :)
