2015 Christmas Wish List

Dear Santa,

I want you to know that our wedding was this December and we got so many wonderful gifts. We were also surrounded by family and friends and that alone was gift enough. We were showered with so many gifts for our home and are so appreciative. We have decided to only do Christmas stockings for each other this year. So my list of Christmas wishes is only a list. I don't need any of these items and I am not expecting them. We feel very blessed to have had our wedding, being able to have our friends fly in from all over the country and most of all have been able to spend time with my mother. I will be so happy if Skype doesn't crash on Christmas day. We also feel very blessed to have a roof over our heads, food in our stomachs and to be able to pay our bills. So really... this list is just a list of non essential items I'd love to have one day.

1. Vera Bradley Bag
Turn Lock Satchel in Impressionista
There was a point in my life where I only carried Vera Bradley bags. I use to love, love, love them. They were light, easy to clean and not super expensive. They also show off super cute colors and patterns. Then it was like you saw them every where you went and it was like Vera Bradley was on overload. I still have all of my VB bags but I haven't had a new one in probably 10 years. I saw this one online and thought it was super cute.

2. Daily Agenda Planner.
I'm old school and do not put all of my appointments in my phone. I like to take a pen and write it on paper and be able to flip through the pages and go back and look at things that I've wrote down. I like having room to write down, I like to take a pen and cross things out that I've finished, etc. Last year I got a burnt orange color one and even though it's a little big I carry it around in my purse every day. My life is busy so I have to keep it organized or I will forget what time I'm suppose to show up or where to be.

3. If I Can Dream- Elvis Presley
This is the newest Elvis cd to hit the stands. It was released in November and I've been hearing some of the tracks on my satellite radio. It's so good! They took Elvis' vocals, isolated them and had the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra do the back up for the music. All of the songs were hand picked by Priscilla herself and she did a good job. The songs were ones special to him and her. They were each chosen for specific reasons and it's some of the best versions I've ever heard.

4. Hallmark Christmas Movies

I am a sucker for all of the Hallmark Christmas movies. Seriously, I watch them all. I will probably cry when they go off once the new year starts. Our DVR is busting at the seams with them that I've recorded and refuse to delete. I need to get them all on dvd so I can just watch them through the whole year until the start them back up. I think my Amazon wish list is overloaded with all of them on there.

5. Michaels Gift Card
I'm all about knitting scarves. Plus I go in there and stare at all the cake supplies, ornaments, home d├ęcor etc. Who am I kidding? I'd buy yarn.

I am beyond obsessed with Hallmark Christmas movies! I could literally binge on them nonstop. Would love a few on DVD too!

Also, that VB print is lovely.
