I don’t usually make a list, but there was really only one thing I wanted for X-mas, so I emailed it to Mr. Spaniel: a pair of pearl stud earrings. I just got my ears pierced back in August, and I only have my piercing studs and a fancy pair of chandelier earrings, and I need something in between! πŸ™‚

Ooh I always make a list πŸ˜‰ I’m wishing for a fancy new camera, a new bottle of my perfume, a Lilly Pullitzer Tote, and maybe a monogrammed Vera Bradley garment bag and duffel…(my b-day is around Christmas, too!)

It’s funny, I think this is the first ever Christmas where I don’t want anything, and I never thought I’d hear myself say that!

We just got married in September, and when we tallied up all our wedding gifts, and the stuff we bought with the cash we received, and a few things we bought ourselves, we have everything, and I feel completely content as far as material possesions go.

One thing I’m holding out for is a second “anniversary” band to go on top of my wedding and engagement ring because the bands are so thin, but I have a feeling I’ll be waiting a long time for that πŸ™‚

My mom forces us to make detailed Christmas lists and we just use them to give to everyone.

This year…I asked for running stuff (tights, shorts, socks, tops), clothes, boots, shoes for work, pretty boring stuff overall ;o)

It’s a yearly tradition for us all to make Christmas lists after Thanksgiving dinner so that my mom, aunt, and grandma know what to buy when they go Black Friday shopping. It’s a pretty fun tradition, but I have no idea what I’ll put on my list. I mainly just want clothing this year – more winter stuff (scarves, tights, etc.)

I’m wanting new running shoes and a yoga mat big time. It’s been so hard to resist the urge just to go buy them for myself!

ugh. Fiance and I were really hoping to get a Wii, he told his Mom that’s what we wanted and she said no, bc it’s not practical and we’re moving into a house soon. I told this to my mom. FI’s mom calls me today to tell me she bought him a Wii and she wanted to make sure I don’t buy one for him. I call my Mom (can we all see where this is going?) and tell her, she gets upset because she bought one for us. UGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGH. She’s so bummed and I think it SUCKS.

sorry… this just happened and it’s bugging me!

Spaniel, I wear my pear studs almost every day!

I asked Mr. KM for a pair of diamond studs before changing my mind (I didn’t realize how expensive they were!). I asked my mom for a pair of boots I LOVED, and a cricut machine. Mr. KM is sad now, cause he wanted to get me the cricut but I DON’T want him spending that much when he should be saving some a little something for my left hand.

@Ottawa, that really is shady! I’m so sorry. Is his mom like that a lot?

 

There are oodles of things I can think I would love to get but, and I know this sounds cheesy, I don’t care to get any presents to unwrap because I’m getting to go home for Christmas (hubbie’s coming with of course) and spend it with my family and that’s all I really wanted.

My list is mostly stuff for wedding planning or for the day- gift cards to make-up places
(so I can actually afford to buy make-up at Sephora or Bare minerals!), a set of professional make-up brushes, Gift cards for spa or nail treatments at local salons (I’d love a free message and a mani/pedi the day before the wedding!), gift cards for clothing shops I like to frequent (so i can buy wedding related outfits!), jewelery from etsy I have my eye on (my Fiance has hinted this is one of the things he’s buying me! Yay!), a Wii with Wii Fit (hints have been dropped this will appear under my tree this year! Yay!), books (my list is so long for this I just point everyone to my Amazon wish list!), the P90XDvd set (which I hear is amazing!), a Flip HD 120min 8gb digital video recorder (I want to give this to a friend during the wedding to record the ceremony), new pillows, amd comic books (also on my amazon wish list).

 

Most of the stuff i want is for the wedding in some way- to get fit for the wedding (I want my fat arms and belly to go away!), to look fab for the wedding, to look fab for wedding related parties, and to record the wedding. My family thinks my list is werid because I never wear make-up- what’s the sudden interest? heh.

I don’t really have a list, since I’m getting married 6 days after Christmas.  The FH and I decided on a $200 budget for Christmas/Wedding gifts to each other, so I asked for a snowflake brooch for Christmas that I can wear day of wedding.  My parents haven’t asked if I want anything yet, but I would probably tell them no.  They are contributing $4000 to the wedding and mom already told me what she bought for a wedding gift.

I want a Bakerella tee!! And socks. I’m easy to please.

And Ottawa – That is quite a frusterating mess. I’d tell your mom to sell it online for a profit. Seriously. The closer it gets to Christmas, the more money. Tell her to give the extra earnings as a wedding gift if she can’t figure out what to do with the extra cash! πŸ˜‰ I’m amazed they were both able to get them. I’d tell Fiance about it, but not until after Christmas. You’re lucky you have parents who can and will do those things for you!

@purduegrace – i think it’s just an unfortunate mixup!! i think his mom was just trying to throw him off. she’s a very nice lady and definitely didn’t mean to cause this!! πŸ™‚

@whitesonnet – we are very lucky!!! that’s part of why it sucks, my mom didn’t think we’d ever suspect it bc it’s unlike her to buy something so impractical, she was so excited to hear our excitement when we opened it!! *sigh*
