When I was working on these One Word Holiday posts, I wanted to share with you, my readers, my family, and friends.
But over the past five years, I have had readers that have become like family and friends.
Antonia is one of those readers.
She is what I refer to as a “lifer”.
She has been here since almost the beginning of the blog in 2010 and it wouldn’t be the same without her Facebook comments, her messages on Pinterest and her comments here on the blog.
I am so excited to share my first reader turned friend today on the blog!
What one thing annoys you the least about Oprah?
The least? PSHHHH I would have to say it annoys me the least when she is QUIET and NOT on television or anywhere. Do we really need “Oprah Tea” at Starbucks? GO AWAY…..rant over.
SEE?? THIS IS WHY I LOVE ANTONIA.
Who is your favorite family member? Why?
I didn’t wanna participate because this question is POOP! I guess my favorite family member is myself, hahaha! Really though, I love my entire family so much, even the irritating members that always dish out their unsolicited opinions. I’m talking specifically about my immediate family.
So what you’re really saying is I am your favorite family member.
What is your favorite blog and why? (not mine)
I used to read, like, 10 blogs, I’m down to two, SOMETIMES three. I just got tired of the fake-ness of some blogs. No one ever talked about the real stuff. The real things in life, and if they did it was still oh so perfect…..FAKE.
So what you’re really saying is I am your favorite blog.
What holiday food item would you take a bath in if no one was looking?
Hmmm…maybe Rice Krispie treat mixture before it hardens. Or turkey and gravy. ONLY if I can get them in the same bath…..this just took a weird turn,
Indeed it did.
BUT OMG YES TO THE RICE KRISPIE TREAT MIXTURE BEFORE IT HARDENS.
ALL DAY LONG.
What one present do you hope to receive this year?
Well, I just got married so I am on cloud 999, could I ask that that cloud never comes down?
You sure can.
If you only had the money to make one-holiday dish this season, which one?
Probably a turkey. Since this will be the second time we have ever made one I’m not going to share the recipe because I don’t have one. Hahahaha.
Oh, Antonia, I love you so much.
And I have never cooked a turkey and I have been married almost 10 years so I don’t have a recipe either.
What one celebrity is your absolute favorite?
Julia Roberts. You never hear of her being an asshole or flaunting her famous-ness. She “seems” like a normal gal. Kate Winslet too.
YES. To both but definitely to the not being asshole thing.
And the whole “annoying Oprah” question stemmed, for me anyway, from her always flaunting her “famous-ness”.
If you could have your own television show, what would YOU give your guests as your big giveaway?
Ummm a family trip to the happiest place on Earth: Disneyland/Disneyworld depending on where my show studio is.
I totally see you in Cali.
I will bring plenty of Purell because Disney is dirty.
In an infectious way.
Not a slutty way.
What one thing (besides any religious belief) is your favorite part of the holiday season?
Spending time with loved ones. Making memories, Hanging out, laughing, poking fun of each other, watching silly Christmas movies, singing Christmas songs. Yes, we do all those corny things and I love every minute of it. That qualifies as “one”, right?
And it isn’t corny, it is amazing.
Your family sounds like mine.
If you could say one word to describe my blog, what would it be?
FUNNY, REAL, HONEST, RELATABLE, TRUE, NORMAL, FABULOUS AND MY FAVORITE!!!
I had tears in my eyes when I got to this last question.
I LOVE YOU ANTONIA.
See, THIS is why I love blogging.
Thank you so much, my friend.
You are so amazing and special and wonderful.
I am so glad I sat down to the computer five-plus years ago.
Because if I hadn’t I would never have met YOU.
