Sunday Social!

Sunday Social is a fun & simple way to help your readers get to know you a little better.
You can link up with your blog at ashleyscarnivalride or acompletewasteofmakeup and join in on the fun! :)
 Holiday Questions!

1.  What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Simple, just eating good food and spending time with the family!

2.  Favorite holiday movie?
Home Alone is a classic, and my absolute favorite is Elf!!

3.  Favorite decoration, or Pinterest decoration you wish you could have?
Both of these are from Pinterest :)
A gorgeous Christmas mantle and a seaside porch with a lovely tree!

4.  Favorite holiday song?
Definitely "Last Christmas" by Wham! I love George Michaels & 80s music!

5.  Favorite holiday dessert?
Italian cookies!!
ESPECIALLY Pignolis ("pine nut" in Italian) and Rainbow cookies :)
Pignolis are simple, chewy cookies made with almond paste & crunchy pine nuts on top.

Rainbow Cookies have 3 thin layers of colored almond-flavored cake with apricot preserves in between,
all covered by a layer of semisweet chocolate!

6.  What is on your wish list this year?
I really hate when people give me gifts, so I never have a real wish list.
But I guess if someone were to ask what I wanted, I would like a Diamond Candle.
I just heard about them today & apparently they are quite popular!
 They're fairly cheap, about $25 (sometimes you can find coupons online)
Each soy candle has a ring hidden in the wax, so as you burn the candle, it reveals your treasure!
The rings are worth between $10 and $5000 dollars (wow).
Even the cheap $10 rings are beautiful!
I think they would also make a lovely holiday gift if you're not sure what to get for someone :)

What are some of your holiday traditions & wishes??
