Sunday Social: Holiday Edition!

I LOVE this week's questions!
Sunday Social

1. What is your favorite holiday season tradition?
Ever since I was little, my favorite tradition has always been decorating the tree. I love going through the ornaments and thinking back to where they came from and why we got them. When I got into high school I would tell my mom that I wanted to have a fancy tree like in the magazines, with a theme/color scheme. My first couple of trees when I was on my own were like that, but since the Mister and I have been together, I have loved starting our family tree. One thing that we have done is to buy an ornament for every vacation that we have been on.

2. Do you have a certain holiday movie you watch more than others? If so what is it?
My mom and I would always watch these two. But they have to be the originals and in black and white.
I also try to watch these every year:

3. Show us your favorite decoration or pinterest decoration you wish you could have:
Yesterday I realized we don't have a Nativity set. I have a single wise man (maybe I will share that story later), but I really want a whole set.

I love the Willow Tree collection, and I think this Nativity set is lovely.

4. What is your favorite holiday song?
It's not a very well known song, but hands down it is Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds: Christmas Song.  I legit listen to this year round. 
5. What is your favorite holiday dessert?
6. What is on your wish list this year?

fantasy christmas list
These are things I won't be getting:
1. A fancy pants camera
2. A housekeeper (this is literally on my wish list every year)
3. Frye Riding Boots- aren't they pretty?
4. A trip to Australia
5. This $150,000 Tailgate Trailer from Neiman Marcus. It comes complete with leather furnishings and a flat screen TV. Glamping anyone???

I am posting a more realistic look at my Christmas list tomorrow, but I thought I would have a little fun with this one :)

We also buy an ornament from every new place we go on vacation. I love that tradition!

I'm also dying for a fancy pants camera.

Buying an ornament on each vacation is such a good idea! We don't have that many ornaments, but I don't want to have to go the store and just buy ones I like. They're so much better when you have meaning behind them.

That is a beautiful nativity set! We don't have one either and we really should.
