Eek…is anyone else freaking out that December starts on Wednesday?!  Where did the year go?  It’s been a pretty good year for me though:  got married this summer (6 months tomorrow…Woot! Woot!!), got published a couple of times in work related periodicals, and had tremendous success with my team on the work side of the world.  But now it’s time to think about the holidays and I’ve got three questions for you:

  1. How are you and your honey handling gifts?:  Last year we didn’t have to worry about it, because we weren’t married yet, but now I suppose we’ve got to come up with a plan so that we’re not shopping all willy nilly.  Are you guys going to set a price limit to what you’ll spend?  How will you decide on how much to spend on each family member?  Like, if I spend $100 on my mom…should he spend the same on his?  FYI: I’m miserly.
  2. Online or in-store?:  I’m an online shopper myself.  I can do without the crowds and pushing and shoving.  Plus, I feel like the deals are just as good online as in-store.  What’s your preference?
  3. How will you divvy up your holiday time?:  This year is going to be a bit different because we won’t be able to fly down to see my fam for Christmas…this is literally the first time in a decade that we won’t be together during that time.  (Unless I can convince The Mister to drive down there…tall order, though.)  How do you guys decide how to split time with the fam?

I can’t wait to hear how you guys tackle these situations…hit me up in the comments!
