Meet Me On Monday

It's Christmas week!  Is everyone excited?!  We are!  PLUS it's MONDAY and time to link up with Java at Never Growing Old for Meet Me On Monday!  Come on y'all- join in the fun!


1.  What will your Christmas dinner consist of?  It's going to be more of a smorgasbord this year. We will have brunch with a breakfast casserole, Charleston (or Carolina) grits (which means smooth and creamy not gritty grits), an artichoke and wild rice casserole, a cranberry orange loaf and a couple of new dishes.  Then, for later in the day, we will have turkey, oyster dressing, squash casserole, broccoli, etc.  And, of course, we'll have all the homemade Christmas goodies just to snack on throughout the day like cheese and olive balls, homemade fudge, sausage balls, cheese wafers, cheese candy, fruitcake bars, shrimp tarts, crabbies, and on and on.  There will be quite a crowd here!

2.  Do you watch commercials or flip through the channels? I flip through unless it's a commercial that I like. 

3.  How long will you leave your Christmas decorations up? I leave them up until the day of Epiphany, January 6 (the day after the 12th day of Christmas)...which is also my birthday. 

4.  What movie makes you cry every time you watch it? Just one????  I won't even attempt to watch PS I LOVE YOU anymore because I just start crying my eyes out from the beginning.  And FAMILY STONE; LOVE ACTUALLY; any SCROOGE movie; LEAP YEAR; AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER; the list could go on for quite a while...I'm a romantic and a softee and that's all there is to it! 

5.  Do you have a Facebook?  Yes I am on facebook.  I was actually invited by my daughters originally.  I stay on there because it keeps me connected to family/friends and reconnected with old college friends.   A lot of my daughters' friends have 'friended' me on facebook too!  


  1. Love your answer about the movies. Do you know I've never seen Forrest Gump? Because I can't stand that the kids are cruel to him at the beginning. And I want to see PS I Love You, but I'm afraid to--I know I'll blubber through the whole thing.

  2. Yes! I always cry during An Affair To Remember. "If you can paint, I can walk." OMG!

  3. Just stopping by to say howdy from
    Meet Me On Monday (Love to read the answers)

    Great answer on the movies. I cry a lot of movies, I just don't admit it. hee hee

  4. Wow!! You guys go all out in the food category! I was thinking I needed to have snackey food available for folks while we're waiting for the big meal....but that may be something I don't get accomplished at the rate I'm going.....

    Merry Christmas!

  5. Beverly--you might want to avoid PS I LOVE's HEART WRENCHING!!!

  7. Should be a great dinner. I FF through commercials. I love the Family Stone! Have a great week.

  8. Your menu sounds so good. We spend Christmas dinner at Evelyn's house these days. Her choices and mine for Christmas dinner aren't exactly the same; but the company makes up for it. Love your selection of movies as well.

  9. Happy Monday!
    I like the idea of eating all day. Some of the menu items sound yummy! I like the pic of the t-shirt! I need to get one of those :) Drop by my blog and have a look at my answers!

  10. Sounds like your smorgasbord will be great!
    Have a wonderful Christmas!

  11. I too love LOVE ACTUALLY. I need to pull that out for this week.

  12. I keep my decorations up until Epiphany as well. The Family Stone is one of my favorite movies...I always cry at the end! Oh, and PS I Love You: I'm the same way...I cry through the whole thing!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
