Don't tell my husband...but, I have a list!!!


The hubs and I have a long standing tradition of agreeing to not buy each other Christmas gifts.  Instead, we pool our money we would have spent in addition to any we receive as gifts and buy a joint gift that we both can enjoy.  So..whenever he asks (because he still does;)) I simply say..."uumm, nothing I really want."  But, we all have a list and so I thought I'd join in with Becky over at "From Mrs. to Mama" and Aly at "Analyze This" for the "Show Me Christmas" link-up and share my secret little list.

Hunter Boots
I've never owned a pair of rain boots and up until recently haven't really been interested but I'm pretty sure I *need* these Hunter boots.  Ooohh...and those cute pink wellies that are lapping over the top..I *need* those too...because I live in Va Beach and we get ssooo much snow (insert sarcasm here) that surely these would make the perfect snow boots too.

Shark Steam Mop
Imagine the horror if my hubs actually gifted me a cleaning device for Christmas...ha!  I don't really get wrapped up in that type of stuff but I've seriously been eying the Shark steam mops for some time.  I've heard awesome things about them and my house is entirely hard wood, tile, and laminate flooring...the broom and sponge mop are getting old (cue the swiffer commercial...)

Williams-Sonoma place setting
Our current everyday place setting is nearing the 10 year mark...and although they've held up remarkably well...I've been dying to get my hands on my very own crisp and clean Williams-Sonoma place setting for everyday use.  Boring...I know, but these little things make my day...yep, I'm simple.

Clothes from Ann Taylor LOFT
Lets see...its been almost 2 years since I've REALLY shopped for myself.  As soon as I knew I was going to be welcoming a baby girl into my life its been much more fun to shop for her.  Plus...with all of the added body weight...shoes and handbags are really all I can enjoy shopping for.  BUT, I am in serious need of a wardrobe overhaul...and I'm pretty sure those that see me on the regular are sick of my "standard uniform" that they ALWAYS see me in.
And last but certainly not least....

A WHITE CHRISTMAS...a girl can dream right?!?!
the view from our front door
And it is possible...see the pic above is from the crazy snowstorm we had the day after Christmas last year (yep, 14 inches of snow in good ole' VB)....see, I do NEED those Hunter Boots!

I'd love to hear what you guys are wishing for...so, head over and link-up with the girls above or go check out what everyone else is wishing for...maybe you can find some ideas for those "hard to shop for" people on your list....you know, the type that always respond with "uumm, nothing i really want."

I love the title of your post! I also could use some amazing Hunter boots. I have the very basic shark mop, and it's nice, but I think I'd prefer to have a different brand or the more powerful shark ones. Merry Christmas and hope you get something from your list!

I'd love a white Christmas. And if I am being honest, another baby (ha!) I really don't need anything other than new clothes, but that always stresses me out.

I would love a pair of rain boots!! I've not heard of Hunter before, but the pink is adorable!

Paige said...

What a great list! I love those boots, and a girl can totally dream for a white Christmas!

Natalie said...

My MIL has the Shark and loves it...you should definitely get that but not until you've gone clothes shopping for yourself!

Laura @ My Thoughts-Uninterrupted said...

Ok so the Shark steam mop seems to be a big hit with people. Maybe I need to add that to my Christmas list! Oh and I totally have those hunter boots on my wish list, but in red!

You NEED the boots. Need em. Yep, I'm an enabler.

You actually do need the steam mop too - oh - and wouldn't S want you to get the new place settings? Doesn't he hate the bowl/plate issue you have? Ha ha ha!!! :)
