my holiday requests.

For the last few years my mom has requested that my sister and I create somewhat of a Christmas wish-list. For some reason I am having a tricky time with it this year. Truth is, I have a longer list of 'holiday requests' rather than items that I would like to see under our Christmas tree. Here are a few of the things I am hoping to eat/drink/enjoy over the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

  • My dad's egg nog. I am not a fan of regular egg nog at all but my dad makes the yummiest stuff you'll ever have!
  • A shopping trip with the fam. I don't even care if I buy anything, I just love spending the day shopping and having lunch with my family. (Yes, my dad is included in this one. He isn't a major shopper but almost never passes up a trip with his girls!)
  • Fresh, homemade apple pie. My Grammy makes a pretty incredible pecan pie but my dad and I are apple pie professionals.
  • Mani/pedi with Mom and Jenn, followed by lunch at the famous Sandy McGee's! 
  • ESCALANTE'S! I cannot tell you people how badly I miss this restaurant and everything about it. I am more than okay with enjoying this treat in November and December.
  • I'm not sure what movies are coming out soon, but I would love to go see a super girly one with any gal pals that would like to join. I try not to drag Kyle to these movies so I have to take advantage of the opportunity while I am home.
  • This last one should go without saying, but I'll say it anyway. I cannot wait to spend time with my family and friends back in Texas. 
I'll be back tomorrow with pictures from our anniversary date and the evening we spent with Aisha Tyler!
