We Want to Know Wednesday

This week is turning out to be a crazy full one and I am scrambling to find time to get anything done so thankful for Kenzie and Scriptor's We Want to Know Questions.   Don't forget tomorrow is Week 2 of the Review Extravaganza!   Thank you to all who have linked up, love reading the recaps.

1) Dinner and a movie: What do you eat and what kind of movie do you watch?  
   If we are talking about going out to a  movie, it is probably an action movie- something that would benefit and is better on the big screen.  Movies are so expensive and then paying for a babysitter on top of that- it has to be worth it to see on the big screen.  So a lot of the drama/romantic comedies can wait to be rented.  
   Dinner will vary from sushi to a really good burger place- we like it all.

2) Name your favorite actor and actress:
    Actor- Hugh Jackman- I am always amazed when I go back and watch an older movie and realize, woah Hugh Jackman was in that.  The variety of roles he plays, the ability he has to really become that character so you almost don't even realize it is him.   Plus I have always loved loved X-Men and Wolverine is awesome!

Actress- Reese Witherspoon- Love Legally Blonde and Sweet Home Alabama and she just seems like the girl next door and someone who overall has her head on right

3) Will you watch any old Christmas movie or do you stick to the classics?  
   I will definitely watch whatever, there is just something I love about the cheesy made for TV movies.

4) What is your favorite holiday movie?
    I would have to say The Christmas Card.  It is a Hallmark movie that Eric and I watched one year, and something about it just made me fall in love with it and it is the one I for sure watch every year.

  5) Tell us one holiday tradition you have?
    Our biggest is probably our Christmas Eve traditions.   On Christmas Eve we reenact the true Christmas story with the fireplace crackling in the background and drink egg nog or hot chocolate while wearing the new Christmas Eve Pajamas the kids just opened.

How would you answer the questions?  What is your favorite Holiday movie (always looking for a new one)?


  1. Hmmm I soooo need to find this Christmas Card movie! Mark and I have been watching Hallmark movies like crazy.

  2. I'm such a sucker for those Hallmark movies. My husband keeps asking why I watch them since I usually end up in tears.

  3. I am so with you on the movie having to be worth it, it's such a hassle to find a baby sitter that we choose our movies wisely ha ha.
    Hugh Jackman is such a hunk! I love him in the X-Men movies :D
    I don't think I've seen the Christmas Card.
    What a neat holiday tradition!

  4. Yes, Jackman is a perennial favorite. Thanks for linking up!

  5. I love The Christmas Card, too! I have so many Christmas movies recorded on DVR that I need to get to.

  6. Ahhhh, I love Christmas movies! I will have to look that one up! And I love traditions. We used to go to my in-laws every Christmas eve to watch home videos of past Christmases, but that was before the accident. Now we are starting a new tradition of Christmas Eve brunch at our house :)

  7. I have a long list of Christmas favorites, but at the very top is definitely 'It's A Wonderful Life'. I LOVE that one. It makes me tear up every time. :o) Other favorites would be Elf, Love Actually, Christmas Vacation, and those old school Christmas cartoons like Rudolph and Frosty the Snowman. I've been watching those for almost 30 years now!
