I burst with excitement over Christmas.  I love the sights, the scents, the sounds.  I love just everything about it, I get giddy with happiness!  I love giving gifts to my family, and in all honesty…I love getting gifts too πŸ™‚

I spent part of the afternoon yesterday wrapping up some gifts for our daughter and my nephews, and as I was busy cutting and taping, my husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas.  That prompted me to sit down and make a wish list.

We’re keeping Christmas fairly simple this year.  With our move this summer and some unexpected, additional expenses that we ended up having with our house (sigh…), we’ve opted to keep more in the bank than under the tree this year.  So even though I know some of these things won’t be wrapped up for me, it was fun to think about what I might get if money were no object.  I mean it’s called a wish list for a reason, right?!

So here are a few things on my wish list.

1. An Apple MacBook Pro.  <– that’s definitely a wish item there πŸ˜‰

2. Keurig K-Cups <– pretty sure that a box or two of these will be waiting for me Christmas morning.  And believe me, I’ll have a smile on my face opening them.

3. Chocolate Covered Strawberries <– neither my husband nor my daughter like strawberries, that means I don’t have to share πŸ˜‰

4. A Grumpy Tervis Tumbler <– for my morning coffee πŸ™‚

Are you counting down the days until Christmas?  Well thanks to Double Duty Mommy for hosting and Excedrin Migraine for sponsoring, we have a group giveaway for the chance to win a $100 American Express Gift Card to get you started on your Christmas Wish Lists.  Good Luck!
