Blogger Men Tell All Part IV

It's that time of month again! Time for another "Blogger Men Tell All" hosted by Becca, Melissa and Samantha! We have somehow managed to participate all four times. My husband is a champ (and I enjoy adding my own commentary). 





1. What is one thing you really want for Christmas/the holidays this year?
I would love a safe trip to Wisconsin. There is supposed to be a storm coming in and I would just love for us to get there safe. However, a Kelty Oriole HipPack would be stellar! Funny that I'm just now posting this because he filled it out on December 23rd. Since then we have had a successful trip without snow AND I had already bought him that HipPack! Ha!

2. Does your family generally do Christmas Eve or Christmas Day (or other sorts of) celebrations?
Since Cassie and I are still figuring out our traditions, I can't really say what we do with our family. Growing up, however, it was Candlelight Service on Christmas Eve, presents and breakfast and church in the morning of Christmas and usually a day to the movie theatre for the afternoon. I'm working on traditions. Suggestions are welcomed. 

3. What is your favorite part about the Holidays?
Family is easily my favorite part of the holidays. Seeing family, being around family, worshipping with family, it all counts. "Being with my wife..." was supposed to be in there, it might be invisible though. 

4. What's your New Year's Resolution?
I probably won't make any just because I know I am not good at keeping them, however, I would like to push myself more on my bike and commute more next year and ride farther, both in one ride and in total over the year. I've never seen anyone live for goals like this guy does. 

5. Where will you be at the start of 2015?
Probably in my bed, fast aspleep. I think he was already "aspleep" when he was writing this.... and no he's not kidding about being asleep before the new year. We are thrilling.

AND we are back for another month of In the Word in One Year. Please be sure to grab January's calendar so you will be all caught up! If you're still participating, how is the study going for you so far? I'm admittedly quite a bit behind, but I am determined to finish out the study!

  1. Where in WI? That is where I'm from...the La Crosse area. :) I wish I could be asleep before the new year, but we're having people over so that probably is not going to happen, lol. I just found this blog not too long ago so I'm excited about this calendar to follow! :)

  2. I feel his pain - we will be aspleep too probably lol! We're newbies to the block of trying to figure out traditions too. Anything I find that works I'll share with you :)

  4. These are hilarious, and I particularly love your comments at the end of each one, ha! I'm with you guys on the sleeping on NYE (well, not WITH you guys - you know what I mean). I don't think I've made it up until midnight in years. I'm just that cool!

  5. "We are thrilling" too. Hubs said the same thing about being asleep at the start of the new year HAHA. Such exciting lives we lead!

  6. My husband is normally a stay-at-home-who-cares-about-new-years guy, but I've somehow convinced him to a nice fancy dinner in Atlanta. We'll see how it goes--I'm sure we'll be home before midnight! He'll probably be asleep on the couch!

  7. We're trying to figure out our traditions too. That's hard in the newly married period where you still kinda do the events you did when you were dating, but know things will probably change when there are kids. I want suggestions too!

  8. Exactly. And it seems like right now we are just spending a lot of holidays away from home so I look forward to the day we do the holidays at home so that we can create our own traditions!

  12. We were in Kenosha! Yay, so glad you found me! if you look back in my archives or search "bible study" you can start at the beginning! It's a chronological study!

  13. RIGHT! I remember when staying up was the only option!

  14. Figuring out traditions can be so tricky, especially when they include both families. It can be so hard to make sure both sides are equally represented.

  15. He was supposed to say being with my wife LOL Cassie, I heart you!

  16. Hahahahah I'm glad you find it humorous

  17. That's the truth. Luckily I think both of our families were pretty lame tradition-wise, so maybe it will be easy? I'm going to keep telling myself that...

  18. Coming up with new traditions is so hard. I think keeping it simple is best, though... That way if you can't do something it's not too disappointing!
