Christmas cracker tag

Casey and Sarah over at Real Suburbia are trying to get me to be a better blogger and tagged me in their Christmas Cracker post. I don't mind, it gives me a reason to blog, and I happen to like those ladies a lot.
Enjoy a little Q&A fun!

One: My Christmas list was unusual this year. Being so far from home, and not getting to spend time with our families, B and I did not make any lists. Normally I send my Amazon list to everyone and hope for the best. In years back, I would create a list for each part of the family so there wouldn't be any overlap. My family knows to stick to the list in order to make me happy. I am a bit of a control freak in that way.
Two: Christmas day B and I plan on sleeping in until whenever we decide to get out of bed, then mosey out to open the small amount of gifts I brought back from our family on my weekend trip to San Jose. I think I'll make breakfast and we will lounge around like it's just another day off. We wanted to go see a movie, either The Hobbit, or American Hustle, at one of the dine-in theaters around here, but it looks like most of the showings are either fully sold out or so full we'd be sitting in the very front row. Not really our style. We might find a regular movie theater, but after going to the fancy dine-in one, we are spoiled.
Three: It is Christmas Eve, and I still owe my little sister and my sister-in-law gift cards. I am thinking of just sending them virtual gift cards tonight.
Four: I. Hate. Surprises. Billy says it's stupid to surprise me because I'm so picky, and I hate them.
Five: I put up the tree on Black Friday. I bought a small fake tree for my apartment a few years back, and replaced it with a large fake tree this year. I like to keep the tree lit as long as possible, it makes me happy. I do take the tree down around New Year's though, it's the one Christmas-y thing I like on my birthday.
Six: Leggings and a comfy t-shirt! It's jammies all day with B and I, unless we decide to go out for a movie. 
Seven: Boxing day is December 26, and I do believe Ms. Casey and I will be hitting up Costco to load up on healthy food for our transition into healthy eating. We are going hard on 2014, and starting early. 
Eight: I can't remember when I stopped believing in Santa, but it had to be pretty early, like first grade or so? I had older family members who sucked the fun out of everything. Also, I have always hated surprises, and would hunt down the presents "from Santa" that my mom hid. It wasn't hard to figure out that Santa was just my parents.
Nine: I love the Nordic Pine scented soy candle from Target. It makes my fake tree smell fresh! I also love pumpkin scented candles all year long, they're delicious. 
Ten: Christmas is a really tough holiday for me, and not my favorite by any means. I struggle with my December funk, my birthday being overshadowed, and usually hate the stress it puts on me. I think my favorite part {and also the worst part} is the month long sweets binge that becomes not only allowable, but also encouraged. I am also a fan of going to a movie on Christmas, but I don't do it every year
I would like to tag:
