It wouldn’t be the holidays without … My mom shaking every Christmas present (no matter size and weight) and asking if it’s a bowling ball!
Favorite Christmas present I’ve ever gotten … my Dyson hair dryer!
Best gift I’ve ever given … a denim Prada makeup bag for my sister.
Most wonderful Christmas memory … We have one Christmas that we jokingly call “the worst Christmas ever.” Everyone ended up walking home from church in silence after a series of attitudes, miscommunications, and unfortunate events. And it was SNOWING! Needless to say, this was during the teenage years. The story is infamous.
For our holiday meal, I especially look forward to … My family always makes a big Christmas breakfast that we cook together. Homemade biscuits, sausage, bacon, and mimosas!
My family’s most cherished holiday traditions are … silver ornaments for every year.
The first song I put on my holiday playlist is … “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” by Kacey Musgraves.
Best place to spend the holidays … I like Christmas in Amarillo, where I grew up, followed by a relaxing beach vacay!
Good organization for giving back … My hometown has an organization called Eveline Rivers Project that collects coats and warming items and delivers them to the community.
My greatest wish for the new year ahead is … more time with my family and friends!
