I love shopping for gifts.

I love giving gifts.

This time of year makes me smile. Wrapping papers, ribbons, bows, lights, decorations, carols.

Even this Jewish girl feels the holiday spirit.

[I promise my background will be a post all in itself one day soon]

But just like you, I have a wish list too!

Here’s what I am lusting after right now:

Kindle Fire

This hat (even though I live in Texas and it is never this cold! ha)

Indianapolis Colts Women's Breast Cancer Awareness Uncuffed Knit Hat

The newest Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child

A Bichon dog (puh-lease Keith…..pleeeeease!)

And the holiday season begins! What are you lusting after this holiday season?

    My mom just bought a fire and I am SO jealous! I love my old kindle though!

    I have the original Nook, and am lusting after the Nook Tablet. If only it had a camera!

    a kindle is on my list too!! the fire had a crazy black friday sale for $123!
    The Fire reviews aren’t very good though, especially compared to the iPad. So, since we already have an ipad, I am asking for the basic kindle for Christmas. Can’t wait to finally be able to read when i want (ebooks are so much easier to download from the library) without fighting over the ipod with my bf! not to mention, blogs too 😉

    I was playing with my mom’s Kindle (not the fire) and it was pretty cool. Although, I have to say I’m really lusting after a new Macbook Pro.

    I get you on the holiday thing. I always got into the Christmas spirit even though I don’t celebrate it.

    Ahhhhh, I hope Keith gets you that dog!!! How sweet is that face?

        coincidence? I think not!

    Awww! Bichon’s are so cute. And hypo allergenic if you have any friends or family that have pet allergies. We were going to get one when we were looking for a family dog but wound up with my moms maltese/shitzu instead.

    Believe it or not Kelly, I’ve seen people wearing hats like that on my college campus already.

    • November 29, 2011 12:11 pm

      Oh I always wear them even if the weather doesn’t warrant it…haha!

    I want a new camera and a new laptop. It makes me laugh because when people ask what I want for Christmas, I just say ‘nothing’ because anything I want is so expensive! Haha!

    Honestly? Nothing. I’m the lamest of lame. 🙂

    I want a juicer!! I think I could sneak a lot of nutritious stuff in Trent’s diet. 🙂

      I want a Juicer too! My friend Debra (remember her? She did the marathon training with me??) anyway she has one and she used to make the best carrot juice! It was surprisingly sweet.

    GAH! that puppy! If I wasn’t such a clean freak, I’d get one TODAY! But my kids make enough messes.

  12. November 29, 2011 12:26 pm

    you really should get a puppy, they are the best ❤
    And I have no idea, I'm having a really hard time coming up with things, other than gift cards to Lowe's. What happened to my life…

    Aw, I hope you get a pup! 🙂

    I don’t really have anything on my list – but that’s because we’re trying to buy a home! That’s quite the gift in itself! And a huge money pit hah

    I absolutely hate giving gifts AND getting gifts. I think I’m the only person in America – but I try to put a smile on my face and just go for it during the holiday season!

    But that puppy is incredibly cute. 🙂

    That doggie is so stinkin adorable! I just want to squeeze him 🙂

    Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was
    wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
    code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
