Dear Santa...

A friend of mine posted her "Top 10" list for Christmas on her blog the other day. I began thinking about what I'd like for Christmas this year and I did come up with a few tech-y things. And I know I should be doing something besides thinking about things that I want. For instance, I could be doing laundry or unloading the dishwasher or reading or sleeping. But I thought this might be fun!

Eddie and I have decided we're not really doing Christmas gifts between each other this year. We have about 100 things around the house that we want/need, so we're sticking to that list. (I did buy him something fun for about $20 but I'm not going to tell you what it is in case he reads this!)

So, in honor of Black Friday, here we go:

1. iPad. This is no secret amongst my family members. I've tried to get James to say "iPad" so that his Papa will buy him one.

2. Silhouette or Cricut. The possibilities with these things are endless. I. want. one.

3. iPhone. Why am I obsessed with Apple? Dunno. (This will really have to be a Valentine's Day gift, I think. Verizon's edition hasn't come out yet.)

4. A BluRay player. I bought one for Eddie and he returned it (I'd bought one in a banged up box) and he keeps making excuses why he doesn't want to get another one. I'd love one that we can get Netflix through. Convenient!

5. This sweater from Old Navy.

6. Personalized stamp.

7. A cleaning service twice a month. BAHAHA! I can dream, right?

8. A buffet for our dining room.

9. Kitchen chairs!!! This really is a need instead of a want. I love these from Potterybarn:

10. A shopping spree at Ballard Designs or Potterybarn so that I can get all of the rugs and curtains that I need for our house! Rugs fall under the need category as well.

11. The best exercise pants in the world. Too bad I don't know what they are. I really need a pair that fits, doesn't stretch out, and doesn't look sloppy.

12. Nike Free Runners...

For the record, I'm not a huge fan of those colors (the one on the right isn't terrible) was just the only save-able picture I could find.

13. These pretty earrings from Stella & Dot.

14. A gym membership!

15. Lowe's gift cards for Eddie so that he'll buy a storage house for the backyard, move all of his yard stuff out of the garage, and I can park it in!

Too bad most of my list isn't affordable, huh? ;)

What's on your Christmas List?
