(Almost) All I want for Christmas...

Can ya'll believe that tomorrow is December 1st? I can't! And you know what that means? Christmas is only 25 days away! I'm not READY!!! Guess how many gifts we've purchased already? ZERO!!!!!!!!!!! We don't even START shopping until the week before. Get this...our wedding anniversary is on the 17th of this month, right? Hubby and I usually spend this day together...alone...Christmas shopping for the KIDS!!! What a tradition, huh? So, with that said, we've got plenty of time :-).

Anyway, I totally feel that Christmas is all about the kids and all about giving. However, that doesn't mean that I can't have my own wish list, right? Well, I've come up with the things that I think would really be nice to have this year. Here's a few of the things that I'd LOVE.

Ok, let's start small (relatively speaking). I'd like to upgrade to a platinum princess cut diamond engagement ring. This year we will celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary. I think it's time for an upgrade.

Alrighty, now I really LOVE Dr. Pepper. Although I don't keep it in the house (unless we have guests over or something) And on occasion, if I'm out shopping, I will treat myself to a nice cold one. So, an unlimited supply would be nice :-).

Ok, now we're getting to the bigger stuff. A few years ago, I actually owned a Chevy Tahoe. However, in order to save some money, we had to trade it for something more affordable. And now, considering how much gas costs, that was a great decision. But I'd be lying if I said that I don't miss it. And NOW...they've come out with a new body style and I LOVE it!!! I'm not really picky about the color, but this black is pretty HOT!!! I'm not normally one who drools over stuff. But don't let me see one of these baby's driving down the street......

Now, being that I'm a stay at home mom, my cash flow is a little....uhhhhh, shall we say, non existent? Don't get me wrong, I have access to the family account. But I do stress out a little when there's not enough there for what we need and sometimes want. I'd LOVE to have a constant flow of money that can take care of all our needs and some of our wants. Fortunately, I'm a very frugal person, especially when it comes to my own desires. So, if we did have the money, we wouldn't want a bigger house or extravagant vehicles (except that Tahoe...which isn't really extravagant...just HOT!). We'd pay off our debts, pay monthly bills (always on time) and have "play" money. Oh, and maybe add a little addition onto the house (a craft room).


Ok, so, how did I do? That's not asking for alot, is it? hee hee. Now, for those of you who think I SHOULD have some of these things, please send your generous donations to........

HA HA! Just kidding (obviously). Alright, it's your turn. If all was right in the world, and money was no object, what would be on your Christmas list??? Share, share.....

Interesting challenge. I accept. :)

As far as Christmas shopping goes... I'm in a weird quandry. I have over purchased for my daughter in-law and I haven't bought a thing for my dad and a piddly little thing for my mom. And I totally blew a great deal for something for my brother on Black Friday. I went back to check on it yesterday and it was twice the price of the Black Friday price. Woe is me.

Hmmm I know this is going to sound like horse crap...but I can't think of anything I would like...I'm not saying I have everything I want but I am very happy with my life right now....ok so maybe i'd like for the basement to be finished instead of partially finished but i really am happy.

Oh and the new GMC body is off the hook...we have a leased suburban...but when the lease is up we plan on buying a suburban...we're praying we can afford the new design...it looks so so nice!!!

I so am LOVING your list. I think it's time for an upgrade too, 18 years in our society is a blessing. Happy Early Anniversary!

There are tons of stuff I would like. But the only thing that gives real joy is doing stuff for Ava. But of course, scrapbook stuff is always cool, a new purse, and a SLR camera would make my yuletide right and tight...LOL
