Favorite Things Link Up - Christmas Wish List

Rob, I hope you're paying attention. This one goes out to you. ;) I'm joining some great ladies for a festively fun link up. Today I'm sharing some things I'd love for Santa to put under the tree for me. I'm also hoping to find a few good ideas from some other bloggers. So here it is, my list.



Tiny Tag Necklace. These necklaces are perfectly understated. I don't wear a lot of jewelry, so something simple and personalized like this is right up my alley.

NIKKOR 50mm Lens. I'm trying to get away from shooting in auto, and it's become quickly apparent that my kit lens is not so great. I'm hoping this one makes it into my stocking.

Starbucks Gift Card. To help feed my coffee addiction. Enough said.

Joules Navy Spot Wellies,. I have a pair of Hunters and love them, but I think these need to be in my closet. One of the main reasons I want them is so I can buy matching ones for the kids. How cute would Harry be in these?

Steve Madden Emojjii Boots. I have a couple pairs of black boots and would love some brown ones to wear too. I love the buckle detail and overall simplicity of these.

Sweater Socks. These look so comfy, my feet need to wear them. Maybe in all three colors.

Marc Jacobs Take Me Tote. I definitely don't need this purse. But what is a wish list without something you want but don't need? I saw this while walking through Von Maur the other day and was instantly drawn to it. I am a devoted Coach fan, but this MJ purse could make me switch brands.

Calphalon 8 Quart Multi Pot. My standard dutch oven isn't doing the trick anymore. When I make soup, most times its right to the brim of the pot and very often boils over. Time for an 8 quart.

Columbia Veloca Vixen Pants. I had a pair of Columbia snow pants I loved. They somehow got lost when we moved three years ago. Last winter I had to wear Aeropostale track pants from high school with UA compression leggings underneath every time I shoveled snow, which was a lot. This year I need some good snow pants, especially since it's already snowing!

I usually have a very hard time coming up with a Christmas Wish List. My parents have demanded lists from us since we were little, and still insist they get one every year by November 1st. With this in mind, I've been putting off buying a few things I need so I can have things to put on my list. I've needed a larger stock pot for months, but I've been holding off.

  1. I LOVE those Joules Wellies! I've seen the matching kids boots and they are so cute :) These will definitely be on my list for next year! Also, I would love a better lens for my camera too. I've been using automatic for a while but am slowly trying to get away from it!

    1. Getting away from auto is tough, but I'm liking the results the more I learn.

  3. I ALWAYS ask for Starbucks giftcards to help pay for my addiction, too! I feel so much less guilty paying $5 for coffee if I can rationalize that it was a gift! great post!

  4. My parents and in-laws have also been hounding me for Christmas lists - it's a lot harder than I thought it would be. That being said, I love the wellies on your list :) Merry merry!

    1. The older I get, the tougher it gets. I wish it were as easy as opening the Sears Wish Book like it was back in the day.
