Hey girls!

I just finished typing my Christmas list!

I organize it so well so that my mom and dad can see exactly what I want, how much it is, what color, and the and/or phone number where they can order it is attached too...basically NO EXCUSES I give every option! Haha!

I really don't need a thing! However, I am asking for my tanning machine, that would be a huge plus, especially because I got asked if I was sick twice today! My lips were really pale...and oh so was the rest of my body! I get so white in the winter, if I was sitting still I would look dead. Its really disturbing! Glad I have blonde hair, so at least it looks a little normal.

I also asked for a lot of other things! I always make my list extra long so there is a lot to choose from! I definitely don't expect everything but my parents do take extra good care of me and my brother and sister each Christmas, I feel so blessed!

My favorite part of Christmas is waking up to the alarm I set every year for 3am, and going to see what I got, then sneaking back to bed until 6 when my brother and sister wake me up. Its a good day!

I really cant wait for Thanksgiving and Christmas and just being at home with extended family, and spending time with my family for over a month! I am so excited! My cousin Morgan is coming from Florida for Thanksgiving. There should be over 20 of us at the lake, and I always love seeing her!



Here are some of the books I am asking for, they look so good!

-What Would Audrey Do?

-Jane Austen's Guide to Good Manners

-Essentially Lilly: A Guide to Colorful Entertaining

-Better Than Beauty: A Guide to Charm

-As A Lady Would Say : Responses to Life's Important (and Sometimes Awkward) Situations

-How To Be A Lady A Contemporary Guide To Common Courtesy

-How to Live Like a Lady: Lessons in Life, Manners, and Style

-The Art of Civilized Conversation: A Guide to Expressing Yourself With Style and Grace

-Taste: Acquiring What Money Can't Buy

-Suck Your Stomach In and Put Some Color On!: What Southern Mamas Tell Their Daughters that the Rest of Y'all Should Know Too

-The Complete Manual of Things That Might Kill You: A Guide to Self-Diagnosis for Hypochondriacs

-Beauty Confidential: The No Preaching, No Lies, Advice-You'll- Actually-Use Guide to Looking Your Best

Have a great Thursday!

The Lilly book is wonderful! I saw it at Mint Julep just the other day, and I've been nagging Mr. Newlywed to pick me up a copy...
