12 Days of Christmas - Day 7

Wow - this has been a hard one to find! I'd like some new PJs. I get cold way too easily, and buttons all the way down the shirt drive me crazy. I usually sleep in PJ pants and a sweatshirt, but would love something cuter.

Aren't these neat? They're the Nick and Nora Women's Union Suit from Target. This is the Downhill Monkeys pattern, but the Aqua/Penguin would be nice too. Unfortunately, of all the measurements they give for determining size, they don't include a height, which to my mind would be pretty important. I'm 5'8", so I'm guessing I'd probably want a medium, based on everything else.

I'd considered a traditional footie PJ, but I usually take my socks off to sleep. Having my feet not only covered, but with seams on the ends of my toes, doesn't sound very appealing. Besides, how would my new slippers fit on over the footies of new PJs?

12 Days of Christmas - Day 6

You're heard me go on about my love for my ErinCondren.com life planner, right?

The next item on my wish list is the address book she makes. I would like mine with the Rad Plaid cover in pink/green. It's on my wishlist with the personalization I want and everything!

By the way, if you want anything from ErinCondren.com, please use my link and it will get both of us $10 off our next orders!

12 Days of Christmas - Day 5

I love, love, love this stuff. It's the Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm from One Love Organics. I originally received a smaller size of it in a Birchbox beauty subscription a couple years ago, then accidentally left it in a hotel room and had to buy another.

I bought the big one, and it's lasted me nearly a couple years! Yay! This is what I use to take off my eye makeup. It says not to use it on your eyes, but I've been doing it for a couple years and haven't had any issues. It doesn't burn, but does completely remove my waterproof eyeliner and mascara (with a little help from a washcloth in the shower).

This is one of those things that is sort of questionable on my wish list, because if I don't get it, I'll go buy it. It's a must have for me as a beauty supply, and I don't have many of those.

12 Days of Christmas - Day 4

One of the downfalls of starting this earlier is that I may see things I wish I'd mentioned after my list is supposed to be done. I guess I'll deal with that if it happens ;)

I think I've had something on my list every year having to do with Shaun of the Dead or zombies :) This year I saw this hoodie a few weeks ago.

I would love to rock this in a small, I think (since they're unisex hoodies), in the Dark Heather color ($29.99). What do you think?

And more importantly, have you seen the movie so you understand the references? If not, please do. You won't be sorry.

12 Days of Christmas - Day 3

I saw these mentioned in Good Housekeeping last week and thought they looked really cool! They're Flash Tattoos - temporary tattoos for grown-ups. They look like jewelry - my favorites are the Lena or Josephine ones that are like bangle bracelets.

I'm not even sure where I'd wear them, but that's why they'd make a cool gift. I doubt I'd buy them for myself, but I can sort of imagine wearing them probably in summer? (Annddd.. now I hear the voice of Olaf the snowman in my head, "in SUMMER!!!")

Sorry. The snow is already driving me a bit batty.

It looks like most of the sets I liked were about $22, plus shipping if your order totals less than $43 (weird number - okay).

Back to the Tunes!

As I'm sure you would expect, I am not pleased about the snow we've gotten already this year.

But I am happy to hear the holiday music. I'm one of those people who turned the local station with the holiday tunes on as soon as they started playing them. I wouldn't be opposed to hearing someone plunk out Jingle Bells on a keyboard or the selection here (of course the cuteness of Jack trying to sing along would help even more).

In reviewing my posts from last year, I see I never got to hear my favorites! Hopefully they'll get around to the hippopotomaus and the donkey song before I need to learn them on the guitar and play them myself. I'm afraid that would detract even further from their appeal ;)

12 Days of Christmas - Day 2

I have a little counter in my kitchen where there's usually a Scentsy warmer/scenter. I have a candy corn one, a birdhouse for the spring, an Easter egg, and a Santa suit. But I don't have anything for between Christmas and Easter... How about this guy:




I think he'll be perfect! Back before we had kids, I had a holiday tree just decorated with penguins. Our holiday tree still has lots of them, but we've added other things as our history has grown. You can get this dude for me at my friend Brandy's Scentsy site. I think there is usually a bundle to get him with some of the smellies - nothing floral, please!

12 Days of Christmas - Day 1

Well, as previously discussed, I'm starting this a little earlier this year. Most of the things on my wish list are available online so in all politeness I should allow time for shipping/delivery, right?

If you're looking for ideas to give me for holiday gifts this year, you'll find a bunch right here - my 12 Days of Christmas wish list. :)


This? Has 'me' written all over it. I'd like it in a size M, please. I LOVE hoodies, and I DON'T love winter. See?
