Santa Claus is Coming to Town...

So, what’s on your Christmas wish list this year? You know those commercials that have been airing lately, featuring the Lexus wrapped with a giant red bow, waiting to surprise a lucky someone on Christmas day? Well, guess what? That won’t be happening at my house.

Soooo, let’s discuss a more reality-based Christmas wish list. (Hubby, if you’re reading, or paying any attention to my oh-so-subtle hints at home, like “Hey, I want this!” here are some things to consider.)

And, just like me, my wish list is all over the place. :)


First, I’d love a pair of rockin’ Western boots (and if I get these puppies, perhaps I’ll even break down and buy of pair of jeggings. Or, not. We’ll see.)

I love this gray flannel bag from kate spade. Super-cute.

I’ve held off from buying the last of the “Girl” series from Stieg Larsson (it’s never been available at the library or else I would have checked it out by now), so I’m hoping Hubby, I mean, Santa, finds a copy of it for my stocking.
I am loving this Branching Cables cardigan from the Sundance Catalog. Would go perfect with my boots!
These artisan hooded mittens, also from Sundance, are fun. Plus, when it gets really cold in the winter and I’m freezing at my computer (yes, it’s like that every year where I work - my hands and nose get so very cold!), I can wear these Bob Cratchit-style mittens and stay warm.
Aveda products always make a good gift.


And, of course, one cannot forget my sustenance that gets me through each day, Starbucks. It's not only a welcome gift, but because I consider coffee a food group, I would say it's a necessity.

What's on your holiday list this year? Any special goodies, clothes or gadgets?

And, so I don't sound like a complete materialistic dolt, later this week I will be posting about worthwhile charitable organizaitons and crafts that support third-world countries that should be considered this holiday season.

My mother in law worked at a school in a little village in the early sixties and she is very proud because the seven year old Stig Larsson spent his first grade with her. He was living with his grandparents but when his grandfather died in 1962 he moved to his parents.

two things, first my sister-in-law gave me the cutest cow boy boots5 years ago when I wasn't into cow boy boots. Then my borther-in-law who worked for yeasr as the creative director for Aveda gave me a ton of shampoo which I used as bath bubbles because I had too much. If I knew then what I know now...
