Okay, okay.... I will be 41 years old in March, but I am not too proud to admit that I do have a grown up Christmas list!! I love Christmas! I love giving gifts and I love the little surprises that as adults, we really only get two times a year... Christmas and birthday!
Now, let me start by saying that I do have some non materialistic things on my list. In fact, those will always trump anything that can be bought in a store, however, the little girl in me still has the twinkle in her eye at a few choice items every year.
The past few Christmases have been pretty rough around here, I am not going to lie. Due to the issues that Garrick and I have been battling, recent Christmases have been marked with some tension and stress to say the least. So, YES... the first thing on my list is a safe, joyful, peaceful Christmas with God in the lead. My heart cannot take another stressful Christmas, so really and truly, this is numero uno for me!!
BUT... I will share with you today a few little items that I have on my "fun list" this year!
1. North face hoodie- I really didn't know I wanted this until I was scoping out Brads Deals (a great website that gives you the best current deals on all things!) and I saw it listed! I thought to myself, I do not own a hoodie, I won a lot of fleece zip ups but no hoodies. I am chronically cold in the winter and often sleep with a sweatshirt on! And, if it is not TOO cold out, I run outside and this would be PERFECT! Ergo, it made the list. Now, I hinted around to my spouse a few dozen times, even sending him the photo, but we shall see if there is a box waiting for me to unwrap!
2. Philosophy Lotion and/or Shower gel- I usually get this every year from my mama and I always look forward to it! I love bath and body items and Philosophy is a little more costly, therefore, I seldom if ever buy it for myself. So I look forward to getting it as a special gift!!!
3. Pajamas- I LOVE pajamas! Yes, I have way too many! And yes, it is a tad ridiculous, but I can't help myself, cozy, warm and fun jammies are just my favorite! You can never go wrong buying me a pair of jammies!
4. Fun scarves and pieces of jewelry- My sisters buy me these types of gifts often and I love them! Last year my older sister bought me this small silver bracelet that says, "one day at a time," I am not sure if she knew how fitting this was for me, but it could not have been more perfect. I love meaningful little gifts like that. Another year, my younger sister bought me the cutest, most elegant looking scarf. I get so many compliments on it and I have never seen one like it! To this day, it remains one of my favorite scarves!
SO THAT'S IT!!! Those are at the top of my list!!!
I will keep you posted if any of them end up under my tree!!!
Peace and Blessings
