Y’all know my thing for airports run deep. I love them, I would live in one, the Chili’s Too establishments are always of high quality, I just have no complaints about airports.

So I’m traveling home to WA this weekend. I’m giiiddddddyyyyyy to see my boo boo – it’d been two weeks. While in Mem, my mom bought me a couple new tops. Kewl, righteous.

I put together a really cute travel outfit. New top tucked into some gr8 jeans with a lil sweater and booties and necklace. I’m feeling myself in this airport. Just strutting up and down these terminals. Side note: my ultimate travel goal is to be mistaken for a model on her way to an exotic shoot. This has never been achieved. Perhaps because I only travel to Memphis and Seattle, or maybe because I am not cute enough. Anyways, I get through two airports and am on plane #2 of the day. I’m sitting next to a fella in flannel PJ pants. He’s kind. He watches Manchester By The Sea (worst movie of my entire life – will save for different post), I read a book. About 20 minutes to landing, bruh leans over and is like, “Hey, I just wanted to tell you your tag is still on your shirt.”

Sweet Potato Poutine

It’s that time of year again.

The time of year when I go home for Christmas & let my parents fawn all over me & tell me how much I am loved & adored. *Sigh*

Are you guys as spoiled as I am & still get 800 presents? No?? Oh.

I didn’t even ask for anything huge this year. When I was little, if there wasn’t a giant, unwrapped present near the tree on Christmas morning, my world would explode. “WHERE’S MY BIG THING?!” is recorded on more than one Christmas video, let me tell you. Again, this is not my fault, my parents should have procreated more.

Like, all I want this year is a fit bit & a blank check is that even too much to ask for??????

 

P.S. Christmas calls for a two week blogging detox. I’ll miss your sweet faces but will be back with fresh recipes & ridiculousness on January 4th. Smooches & safe holidays to all of my little dumplings!
