Daddy/Daughter Christmas Day!!

Every year my dad takes my sister and I Christmas shopping! It is a day we look forward to all year and This year was no exception. We always get to pick out presents for ourselves and for my mom. This year we decided to go out to La Cantera Mall. Its an outdoor mall that's absolutely gorgeous. Everything was decorated so beautifully and really made it feel like Christmas (even in the 75 degree weather) We started our day at Starbucks. For those of you who don't know, let me tell ya...... My dad is OBSESSED with his Starbucks! Not in the "oh I like my Starbucks in the morning" kinda way but the "Yeah... this is my 4th Starbucks TODAY" kinda way. I am a Starbucks fan myself and he is constantly buying me Starbucks gift cards and reloading money on it so I can have my Starbucks too. LOVE him!

Today I got a Venti Non-fat with whip Creme Brule' Latte! YUMMY!

Then we went on to Nordstroms. I love this store! Its so pretty and the customer service is always so great and they always have the cutest clothes!
Here is my sis and me in front of one of the trees in the store.
We ended up going to a TON more stores and I found a couple of shirts in Buckle that I wanted so my dad bought me those. My sister took a little longer trying to find something that she wanted until we went to Vera Bradley and she found the cutest ipad cover. Here she is outside of the Vera Bradley store. She thinks taking blogging pics is "awkward" ha!
We headed out to leave and on our way out we saw a sign for "Mexican Hot Chocolate" in the Nordstoms Bistro and just had to try one

After that we drove down to North Star mall to go eat at The Cheesecake Factory. We have eaten there every year and didn't want to break tradition. I absolutely love this place! It might just be my Favorite! Right now I am really into the Barbecue salmon with corn succotash and mashed potatoes.
And of course we had to also get the Red Velvet Cheesecake (which is TO DIE FOR!!!)
As we were leaving to go home I saw a woman getting her hair curled in a little kiosk in the middle of the mall. Her hair looked amazing and I had seen this curling iron before so I stopped and asked about it. The sales woman sat me down and told me about this....The Grande professional Curling Iron
Its a ceramic curling iron that curls your hair very easily. I have been using my "Chi" to curl my hair but that can cause damage to the hair. This iron makes your hair feel so soft and natural.I ended up talking the lady down from the price and even got a free shampoo and conditioner out of it! Here is a picture of one side of my hair straight and one side done with the "Grande Professional"! I love it!

Today was so much fun! I feel so blessed to have such an amazing dad that will always take the time to do fun things with his girls!
