Holidays and Life Goals, 5 ? Friday

Fun on Fridays is a 5 Question Blog Hop.  Once you have read my answers, head on over to Mama M’s and check out what others have to say.

1. What’s on the top of your holiday wish list and why?!

A serger I think.  I have been sewing a lot more recently and a lot of projects suggest using a serger.  No, I would rather have time to run.  We got a treadmill for our anniversary gift and I am really enjoying it.  Soon I will have to go back to work and it will be harder to find time…Yes, time to run is what I want for Christmas!

2. What is your favorite Christmas gift from the past?

My oldest daughter rolled over for the first time the week of Christmas.  That was a cool gift.  I was so afraid she would do those first things at daycare, so was thrilled when she did that at home with me!  My other fave was the year my hubby bought me a freezer.  Yup.  I was nursing and pumping for our oldest daughter and was worried about storing my milk.  It meant a ton when he got me a deep freezer for storing pumped milk.  Who knew a question about Christmas presents could be TMI, huh?

3. If you had life to do over, what would you be when you grow up?

I am so proud, this is the question I suggested for 5 Question Friday!  Now on to my answer, I would be a Certified Nurse Midwife.  I am tempted to go back to school now, but with my English degree I would need to basically start my degree over, get my nursing degree, then my masters in midwifery.  So my second choice is to become a birth doula.  I have taken the classes, now I just need three births to attend.  Do you know anyone having a baby who would like to have a doula?  Please let me know!!!!

4. When do you put up your tree?

We don’t put our tree up until about a week before Christmas.  It drives me batty to tell the kids not to touch it, so we wait…less time for the tree to stress us all out.  But we have started the outside decorations.

5. What is your favorite Holiday?

I like Easter.  I like celebrating the resurrection of Jesus and I love knowing spring is here or just around the corner!

A special thanks to Lori at Dolly Outfitters for restoring my blog design.  I know she is crazy busy with her business right now.  I really appreciate her taking the time to redesign my blog a few weeks ago and then yesterday she restored it after I messed it up!

Survive til you Thrive!
