Fill in the Blank ____Day :)

1. Holiday spirit is better in a small town. People run at a different pace of life, and although there is still an element of madness in the air people laugh a lot more and have a lot more fun.. It's as if the season hasn't gotten lost in the retail chaos that pays my bills ;) it is rather refreshing!

2. The holidays are incomplete without hot cocoa, family, Christmas trees, pjs, movies and naps :)

3. My favorite things to do around the holidays is bake. Cookies. Cinnamon Rolls. Holiday Treats. Classic meals for around the table. I like shopping for other people.. although not much for myself. haha

4. A holiday tradition my family and I have is non-existent. Buck and I have started one of our own though: we sleep in, get up and make breakfast together, eat while watching a classic Christmas flick and by then end of the meal the child in each of us is cringing in excitement for opening presents. What good feelings!! I can't wait to see what traditions form once baby girl is here!

5. Holiday music is just something I've come to love. We gradually increase our holiday themed music at work the closer it gets to Christmas- but I love the classics, the remixes and the ones that make you giggle! I don't listen to it anywhere else though, it's quite enough 40+ hrs a week!

6. This year, I'll be spending the holidays at my house with Father in Law visiting :) Parents are in FL, but we got lucky and in-laws moved about 3hrs from us. It'll be the first Christmas we've had together with family, normally it's just Buck and I--- and Sariah ;)

7. Holiday wish list: Oh my gosh this is soo hard! I have no idea what I want... So I will just list some things on my to-list before baby (WHICH IS ONLY 4WKS AFTER CHRISTMAS~AH!). 1. Gift cards to fulfill my baby registry at Target. 2. Pretty highlights and flattering cut to look so pretty in all those first pictures. 3. My nails done 2 more times, and 1 good pedicure before baby comes. 4. Solid days with my husby to keep both of our sanity through the holidays and crunch time. 5. A new camera.. I would LOVE a dslr BUT I think thats a little far-fetched, so even a new higher megapixel zoom Nikon will suffice until I save away what I need for a fancy-pants cam! 6. New scriptures and case- the story of what happened to mine is sad and for another day! 7. 2 more fluffy pillows for our bed- I'm ALL about comfy right now.
I feel like my list is very pamper-y, somewhat expensive but somewhat realistic. We shall see, but I will be soo grateful for whatever finds its way under my tree! :)

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
