Christmas Tag 2016 : Fun Tag To Do For The Holidays

Christmas Tag 2016 : Fun Tag To Do For The Holidays

Hey you guys and welcome back to my blog!  With Christmas being in a couple of days, I thought it would be a fun idea to do the “Christmas Tag”.  While roaming the internet a couple od days ago i found this tag. It made me think to myself ” This would be a great idea to do for my blog.”   With that being said, I hope you all enjoy and happy holidays!

1.) What is your favorite Christmas movie? 

When it comes to Christmas movies, I have a lot of favorites which include : Home Alone, The Night Before Christmas,  Dr. Seuss How The Grinch Stole Christmas, Elf, This Christmas, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and etc. 

2.) Have you ever had a White Christmas?

Yup plenty of times!

3. ) Where do you usually spend your holiday? 

I normally spend the holidays at home with my mother or with family.  This year though my mother, the the rest of my family and I are going on a 10-day  cruise to the Carribean Island. So yes this is not my first time going away for the holidays because I have been to Aruba, and The Bahamas. 

4.) What is your favorite Christmas song? 

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire by Nat King Cole. 

5.) Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve? 

I use to wait to open like one or two on Christmas Eve when I was younger, but now I try my best to wait until Chistmas Day to open them. 

6.) Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer? 

 I think the names are Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and Rudolph! 

7.) Which holiday traditions are you looking forward to this year? 

I’m looking forward to getting away this year and having a nice vacation. Also one other  thing that my mother and I do every year is make cookies.  My mother is known for making her  homemade cookies and I love eating the cookie dough.  She always has a list of people waiting to get their cookies every year.

8.) Is your Christmas tree real or fake? 

It’s real, but my mother and I have not put up our christmas tree in years.

9.) What is you all time favorite holiday treat/food/sweet?

I would definitely have to say some Egg Nog and a nice helping of some delicious cookies. My favorite type of cookies are oatmeal raisin, chocolate chip, and sugar. 

10.) Be honest, do you like giving or recieving gifts better? 

I do like giving because it always nice to put a smile on someone’s face  during the holidays, but truth be told I do like receiving gifts a little bit better.  Yet at the end of the day, it does not really matter.   Since I have gotten older, I do not care too much receiving gifts. I guess I have matured some lol. 

11.) What is the best Christmas present you ever recieved? 

It was the year that my mother got me my first Ipod Touch. She totally shocked me with that present. 

12.) What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season? 

I would probably have to say Paris. Though New York would have been my first choice, I already go their enough as it is. 

13.) Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?

I wouldn’t call myself a pro but I’m not that terrible.  I mean the gift is still going to get wrapped,  but it just may just look like the wrapping paper has gone through some struggle lol.

14.)  Most memorable Christmas moment?

It would have to be when i found out the truth about Santa Clause.  Definitely not something I was looking forward too, but I guess that’s what makes it memorable i guess haha. 

15.) What made you realize the truth about Santa? 

Well if you guys want to know, Ill leave a link  below to a youtube video I made in which I talked about how I found out the truth about Santa.  This way you guys will know what made me realize the truth. 

16.) What makes the holidays special for you? 

Spending time with my mom and the rest of the family.   Enjoy being alive and living everday to the fullest.

Food Hacks In Under Ten Minutes

Food Hacks In Under Ten Minutes

Hey you guys and welcome back to my blog!  So for this post I wanted to share with you guys some quick and easy food hacks that I enjoy to make.  Food hacks are a great way to whip up a quick meal or snack fast.  They are not only simple, but in less than 10 minutes you can have yourself some delicious food.  Feel free to use these tips and tricks to put a spin on some of your favorite dishes!

  1.) Adding Fiber

Adding a sprinkle or pinch of chia seeds is great way to add fiber into any meal. Whether its a smoothie, oatmeal, yogurt, salad, a bowl of cereal, or even your pancake mix you won’t even be able to tell the difference.



2.) Grilled Cheese Bags

Want a easier way to cook a grilled cheese sandwich in the toaster oven without having to deal with the mess?.  If so, then you should definitely get your hands on these non-stick reusable grilled cheese bags.  Not only can they be used multiple times, but they are also dishwasher safe too. You can find these bags on, at Walmart, or any other store that sells kitchen supplies. 


3.) Fluffy Scrambled Eggs

A great way to add some fluffiness to your eggs is to add a splash or two of milk into your egg mixture.

Once you try this, your scrambled eggs will never be the same again!


4.) Taco On the Go

Get a  bag of  “Fritos” corn chips and open them open.  Once opened, take a bowl and pour the chips into it.  

After pouring the chips in the bowl, you then put the bag to the side. Next, you want to have all of the ingredients that you would normally put in a taco separated in bowls. For example: Your seasoned beef, beans, salsa, sour cream, cheese, lettuce, avocado, or whatever else you would like to use.   Next you grab a spoon, and start dipping out your ingredients into the empty “Fritos” bag. Once you have all your ingredients in their, you close the bag at the top and shake it up for a minute.  

After shaking, you then take a spoon or a fork and dig in!  Optional: Take some of the chips that you had set off to the side and either crumble them in the bag on leave the chips whole.  That way you will have a crunchy topping!
