i am a sucker for tradition.   i went to texas a&m, for pete's sake.  i love the holidays for this very reason.  two of my favorite holiday traditions happen to be girls only.

a) annual girls christmas party = great excuse to drink alot of wine:
every year my girls get together during the holidays to do something a little more than just meet for happy hour.  we have a tradition of donating money to some really great charities.  and to celebrate our good deed, we eat pizza, drink too much wine and exchange funny gifts.  it's so much fun (even sober).

 {i am genuinely excited about this gift.  so is my son.}

b) family girls trip to neiman marcus downtown for the holiday buffet.  yum.  we dress up.  we eat too much.  we laugh at each other.  we sniff perfume and make wishlists.  while it's happening, i never want it to end.
