A Bit of Me(Me) 12/10/11

 We all leave our “footprint” on the world, in one way or another. In our daily lives, we each do something or are someone that makes the world a little better simply by being ourselves. Danielle from There's a Book  created this wonderful, weekly meme to learn a bit more about bloggers in this blogging community we all have come to love. The idea is to share our lives outside of books. Each week a question will be posted. Your job is to answer in the following week’s “A Bit of Me(Me)”. You can link up here with your post that answers Danielle's question from last week.

We understand that some of you are skeptical about putting yourself out there on the internet and completely respect that. If ever a questions is posed through this meme that you feel is too personal for your liking, feel free to post something else. We don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable with what they share and promise the kids will always be “kid-friendly”. Really, this is a primarily children’s and young adult site, you know?

So, let’s get started!

Do you put up a Christmas tree? If so, what kinds of decorations do you like? Are you a one color light kind of person, multi-colored, blinking ones? 

I love getting a Christmas tree! Although we are not able to get one every year, when we do, it just makes my holiday perfect.  When I was 25 my husband and I got our first Christmas tree together and I went and raided all of my family's ornaments taking a bunch of the ones from my childhood.  So, when I decorate I fill my tree with memories. 


This year, for example, we will be away for 9 days during the holidays so we opted out of a tree, but last year we got one.  It is one of my favorite holiday memories from holidays with my spouse.  I sent him off to get a Christmas tree and he decided he wanted to get his very own Charlie Brown Christmas tree.  He went to the tree tent with $13 in his pocket and left with a sad tree that was lopsided and had been burnt on one side.  But we loved that tree! 


As for lights, I love all lights, but if I could get exactly what I wanted it would definitely be colored, blinking ones. I am all about the fun!
  
Now, your turn! Link up below and tell everyone “A Bit of You!” 

Next week’s A Bit of Me(Me) will be hosted by Danielle at There's a Book where she will provide the link-up and the next question for the following week. Thanks everyone! See you next week!


Next Week’s Question (link-up with your answer at Danielle’s site): If you celebrate Christmas, what traditions do you and/or your family have at Christmas time?  If you do not celebrate Christmas, what holiday traditions do you and/or your family have in general?

Have a question to add? We love suggestions! Just leave them in the comments and I’ll share them with Danielle so we can think about adding them in as we go! Also, feel free to grab either of the buttons for your own “A Bit of Me(Me)” post (or create your own), but make sure to link back to There’s A Book(You can also resize these down to a smaller size if you’d like.)
