Christmas listing...

Yesterday, I listed a bunch of things I'm thankful for...which means that today I show my gluttonous side. That's how Thanksgiving works, right?
Just kidding...

I wasn't originally going to make a Christmas list this year, but my mom asked me what I wanted and then Scott asked me what I wanted, so here we are...

Kindle Paperwhite. I have an iPad (from 2011) that is in good shape and I use it for everything, including reading on the Kindle app. It's just so inconvenient to take places because it's huge, so mostly it just sits on my nightstand. A Kindle would be a breath of fresh air.

Planner --Either a Plum Paper planner in the new year but I can't decide on a cover I like.

Or a Happy Balance Planner. They come in 6 month installments, which is perfect for me. 

Pilates ring.--what I'd love is a reformer but I don't have a thousand dollars lying around or the space for such a contraption.

Slippers. I think I like these ones?

Northface fleece. This one looks nice and fuzzy on the inside.


I'm linking to Pottery Barn just because they're pretty, but I'm not picky. I love new throws. 

A new Penn State sweatshirt (or two). When you live far from home, people represent themselves by their "home". I need something new to wear to work on Fridays. I was wearing my Happy Valley t-shirt at Costco a few weeks ago and a man with a PSU shirt on said "Class of '86...I'm on the alumni board". It brings you together, with complete strangers, in a new place.

This one. 

I'd like socks too, but I'm going to put that in small letters because last year that's all I got from both my parents and from Scott.

In reality, this is just a list of things that I would like and will likely eventually buy for myself. I would really REALLY like a new dishwasher (the one in this house is from 2003) and I would really REALLY like new living room furniture. However, when Scott asked me what I wanted and I said, "What's something WE want?", he laughed and said, "Oh, is that how new furniture happens?".

Fingers crossed.

What's on your Christmas list???


  1. My Christmas list is really slim this year... candles, bath bombs... lame stuff ;) BTW, I was using my iPad to read Kindle books but really didn't like it, and I got a Paperwhite and it's LOVE. It's perfect.

  2. I've already bought a Happy Planner for 2017 but the concept of the Happy Balance planner sounds amazing! Six months at a time makes so much more sense for long term planning!

  3. YES to the planner! i've already made my list ... muay thai gloves (because new training gear is always welcome), GCs to my fav stores (including etsy GCs!), boots and craft stuff!

  4. I hope you get your planner! I know that is something you could probably really use as a teacher :) and new living room furniture of course!

  5. I had a hard time with my list this year. My parents always want some guidance. I sent my mom a link to my Amazon wish list. haha And there wasn't a lot of variety on it. Usually, I have a huge list of books I want, but I just didn't want any this year. Weird.

  6. I usually got slippers every Christmas in Michigan--but no more! Things needed change a lot based on climate! I also love cozy fleeces and blankets.

  7. I am loving those slippers! I think I need a pair as well.

  8. I can totally relate to you wanting to represent with your Penn State sweatshirt. I'm lucky because my brother and his family still live in our university town. So, if I ever ask for something from there, it's an easy gift for them and a win for me!
    I'm a big fan of new blankets too.

  9. I LOVE reading on a digital format instead of an actual book. My biggest pro is the lack of book storage needed. Thanks for linking up with us! XO

  10. I use an ipad mini for my ebooks which is perfect most of the time-- but sometimes it's too easy to get distracted by other apps, so I'd really love one of the basic kindles too. I'm definitely in need of a new fleece, mine has seen better days! haha.

  11. I need a new planner soon for 2017 and I can't decide if I want to stick with my normal Erin Condren or try something different! And give me all the blankets for Christmas! I'm so glad you linked up!

  12. I read on the ipad too and have been really thinking a kindle would be so much handier. Amazon has had some amazing deals lately.

  13. Love your list! I need a tablet period! I still lug my dinosaur lap top around and it is just on the fritz. I loved my old Kindle. They are so inexpensive now too!
