10.) Spending time in a new city.
9.) Baking Christmas cookies.
8.) Staying in a quite suburban neighborhood. Don't get me wrong I love where I live but it will be a nice change to have deers outside my window rather then drunks.
7.) Taking a long relaxing bath (I would never attempt to do this at my current home).
6.) Sharing some beers with my dad.
5.) Tea with mom.
4.) A roommate free environment and four blissful days with my own bathroom.
3.) Free home cooked meals (my mom can throw down in the kitchen).
2.) Spending quality time with the three pups: Ruby, CoCo Puff, and Hawkeye.
1.) And last but not least I am looking forward to hugging my parents. Skype is a wonderful tool to keep in touch but nothing beats the real thing.
