Open Letter to Santa + 11th Day of Blogmas

Hello dear friends! I have been very busy moving ACROSS the country. My husband and I traveled over 2000 miles spread over 3 days to get to our new home. We are tired and sick of junk food and do not want to go on another road trip for a LONG time. 🙂 In other news: CHRISTMAS IS ALMOST HERE! If you are still needing last-minute christmas gifts, check out my gift guides here and here and here.  Now that the stockings are hung by the fire with care, and the smell of Christmas cookies are filling your home, I’m writing my letter to Santa, and inviting you to join me.

Open Letter To Santa

*ps I promise to leave you an extra cookie if you read this

Dear Santa,

I hope this letter finds you feeling jolly (as usual), and not stressing too much about your sleigh ride tomorrow night. I know that it is a busy time of year for you. I studied hard for my finals and wasn’t too snippy when the girl messed up my hot chocolate right before my big test (it was a one time offense I SWEAR). 

I have a couple of things that I would love for Christmas this year, and I hope they aren’t too much trouble. I know I am coming in a little late to the party. I hope you’ll forgive me. Here goes:

  1. The ability to cook more than chicken noodle soup + anything frozen. My poor husband is suffering. Think of our future children. 
  2. Perfect hair. I know this is asking a lot, but this winter is taking its toll on the little hairs on the top of my head. Some volume and maybe a natural wave? I’ll leave it up to you.
  3. A puppy. My husband keeps saying “no” and “we already have one pet” and “how many more animals do you need” 
  4. A husband who understands my need to have a small zoo. Just, like, push him in the right direction. 
  5. The will to actually start working out in January. Somehow the motivation I feel on January first gets shoved aside when I see a cheesecake?? My thighs are saying “please stop” but my brain says “you have no self-control”. 
  6. An interior decorator. I am about to have to fill my new home with furniture. I’m exhausted just thinking about it. Please send someone who can do it for me. 
  7. A personal dish washer. It is my least favorite chore. If you do NOTHING ELSE ON THIS LIST please do this one. 
  8. Endless supply of sea salt + milk chocolate truffles. You know, because if I’m going to be working out I need a reward. 

I know it’s asking a lot. But like I said, I’ll leave extra cookies. And extra milk. I gotchu.

    This is such a cute post! Congrats on the move and I hope you enjoy your new home and your new community.

    Oh my goodness, I could copy and paste almost all of these onto my wish list. Minus the desire for more pets. I have two dogs that left a their Xmas presents on the carpet this morning. I will gladly donate them to the Taydam Zoo.

    • Taylor Mobley | 23rd Dec 16

      LOL. We miss you guys! Cannot wait to see you!

  3. Mimi | 23rd Dec 16

    Oh my gosh, hahahaha that was fabulous! We added a kitten to our home last month, and I STILL want another dog to go with the dog we already have because she needs a little brother. My hubby keeps asking me when we’ll stop adding living creatures to our home. Stop? What does that mean? Perfect hair, I’ve been waiting for that all of my life. And I’ve always wanted an Interior Designer to help my sad little home.

  4. ellie | 23rd Dec 16

    I am right there with you on the Perfect Hair girl! I cannot, for the life of me, make my hair look all glam and fabulous! I end up straightening it to be done with it lol! And that interior decorator, I need one of those too!
    Have a Wonderful Holiday Season!


  5. candy | 23rd Dec 16

    Interesting wish list. I am sure you will cook more, maybe find an cookbook you love and go from there. Good luck on the rest of your list.

  6. Sheila Jo | 23rd Dec 16

    Nice wishlist! Mine includes: could it please not be sleeting or cold and drizzly when I need to take the trash down the driveway this winter? 🙂

  7. Ashley | 23rd Dec 16

    Congrats on the big move! I’m with you on the puppy thing as well 😉

  8. Chrissy | 23rd Dec 16

    What a sweet idea! I would wish for snow, but it doesn’t look as though that will come true. Happy Christmas xxx

  9. Erica @ Coming Up Roses | 23rd Dec 16

    “I want perfect hair.” LOL SANTA come to my house for this one, too!

  11. Neely Moldovan | 23rd Dec 16

    I too would love a personal dish washer and perfect hair!

  12. Holly | 23rd Dec 16

    This letter is so adorable! And girl, I totally feel you with the will to workout in January…it’s on my list too, haha! Have a great holiday 🙂 xx

  13. Lauren I Glitter & Grandeur | 23rd Dec 16

    This post is so cute! I love it! I always enjoy your writing but this is so honest, fun, and playful – that it is probably one of my favs. I hope you get to rest now that you have moved. Moving is the worst! I’m dreading doing it again. Happy Holidays, love!
    xoxo Lauren I Glitter & Grandeur

  14. Cassie || The Brunette With a Blog | 23rd Dec 16

    I love this post! I especially love the falling snowflakes — I thought I was imagining things at first!
    I’d love perfect hair, too. *sigh* One day..
    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  15. Jenny | 24th Dec 16

    Such a cute letter. I want my husband to understand my need for a small zoo as well.

  16. Jean | 25th Dec 16

    Oh my gosh, my letter would be so similar to yours! I’m desperate for a dishwasher, but the husband says no. The same also goes for a puppy! 🙁 I hope you have a lovely Chrismtas x

  17. Tara Holland | 25th Dec 16

    I agree with #1-7, I wish Santa had brought me those things too. We actually have a small zoo but can’t help but want more.

  18. Kristin | 25th Dec 16

    Volume and a bit of natural wave…Now that’s my dream hair hair every day…I do have wave, but it’s crazy wave. Haha!

  19. Reshama | 25th Dec 16

    “Interior decorator” Amen to that! I would SO love a hand in this department, i never seem to get it “just” right.
    Super cute letter ! hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

  20. Yulissa | 25th Dec 16

    Love your list to Santa!! I nees too an interior decorator and dish washer.

  21. Bianca @LadyWiser | 26th Dec 16

    Cute letter…..I like you could use a little more willpower when it comes to working out. Merry Christmas

  22. Courteney Noonan | 26th Dec 16

    I love this post! I’m praying 2017 is kind to my hair – the winter is making it so dry and dull and no matter what I try there’s no improvement

  23. Amy | 26th Dec 16

    Haha! This is such a cute, REALISTIC wish list. Kids want toys, us women want endless supplies of chocolate, puppies, and great hair. I hope you received some of these!

  24. Carol | 27th Dec 16

    Ha, I love your list. I’ll take an interior decorator too if Santa is handing them out. I’ll take most of the things on your list actually!
