Making my list. (And checking it twice).

Did you know that Christmas is pretty much next week? It is, my friends. I've been seeing these "100 days of cookies" or "100 days of holiday recipes" in magazines and online, and I have to admit, it's freaking me out a bit. Department stores are dusting off Christmas decorations as I write this post. And as soon as you have your last trick-or-treater, you'll see neighbors hanging up their Christmas lights and flanking their yards with inflatable deer and snowmen.

Anywho, if you are like me at all, I never know what to tell my family when they ask what I would like for Christmas. I never have anything in mind, and I always just tell them I'll get back with them and let them know later. Well this year, dearest friends and family, I'm armed with a list. Without further adieu, I present my Christmas list:

I'm happy to report that the #1 item on my list was purchased today by my wonderful husband! I have been telling him that if he waits until after Thanksgiving that there won't be any Uggs at ANY store, in ANY city. He was hesitant, but I softened the blow by telling him that he has his Christmas shopping done now!

I think this pretty, lightweight scarf from Gap would transition nicely into spring!

My next camera lens! A 50mm auto-focus, perfect for portraits.

A non-stick pizza crisper. So we can quit putting pizza directly on the oven rack, causing cheese to fall to the bottom of the oven, burn, and set off the fire alarm.

And lastly, a subscription to BHG. You may or may not remember this subscription was on my list for Mother's Day. I've gone from "casually" dropping hints at the grocery store newsstands, to flat out telling my husband that I'd like a subscription, to actually HANDING him a subscription card that's filled out with my name on it. Y'all, sometimes boys just don't get it. So for that reason, it's still on my list!
Anyone else have their list made? Shopping started?

good luck on that magazine subscription! lol We haven't even started our Christmas shopping, it's scary to think that it's so close though! We just moved into a new house this weekend so I'm sure I'll finally be able to come up with some gift ideas for people this year! :)

Ohhh love it! I wish I were asking for a lens for christmas...gotta get the camera first! I asked for real simple and Every day food subscriptions I might have to add BHG. I think I'm going to have to sit down and make my list!

that's the lens I'd like to have next too. I'll get you the magazine subscription, so you can cross that off your list.

My list is not even close to being started, nor have I started shopping! I have to get through the FIVE December birthdays first!

I am just so relieved that we decided to draw names this year--it's going to make everything so much more managable!
