My Birthday/Christmas Wishlist

Happy Black Friday everyone! 

All week I’ve been talking about how Cam and I were getting ready to host our first Thanksgiving (see here, here, and here) and yesterday, the big day finally came! I’m pleased to say that it went extremely well, and I’m so thankful for my husband as he did an amazing job with cooking many of the dishes we served as well as doing the majority of the cleaning after dinner was done! Seriously awesome. The day was filled with way too much delicious food (seriously I’m still full) and I’ll definitely be sharing some photos and recipes with you very soon. 

But since today is the biggest shopping day of the year, I thought it would be the perfect time to share my holiday wish list! (In case any of you are planning on sending me presents) Not only do I love the month of December because of Christmastime, but it’s also my birthday month! I can hardly believe that I’m going to be turning 25 in less than a week…crazy. 

Being a December baby, there’s this pressure to think of all these things you want at one time during the year, and I kind of always envied those June birthdays who had things a little more spread out. At the same time, I do love having my birthday during the holidays because everything is all decorated for Christmas and everything seems so much more festive and special. 

Here are a few things I’ve got my eye on this year: 

Christmas List

1. A ski helmet–safety first!
2. Cozy shearling
–perfect for snowy days in Tahoe!

3. Mountain

Hardwear Power Stretch Gloves–for cold weather runs
4. Ski

poles–I know nothing about ski poles, just that I need some…


Better Sweater in Feather Gray–cute yet warm!
6. Benefit

High Beam–love this stuff to perk up my pale winter skin


Face Get Down Jacket–perfect for skiing, and I love the belt


Decay Naked Eye Palette–I’ve wanted this forever
9. A
new pair of jeans
–I’m still searching for the perfect pair…


A second bowl for my Kitchen Aid mixer–for those complicated

Obviously our upcoming move is heavily
influencing my list this year, as I’m hoping that we’re going to be
spending a lot of time on the slopes come 2012! 

I promised myself I was going to get all my Christmas shopping done
early this year, but here we are post-Thanksgiving and I haven’t bought a
single gift yet. Whoops. Now that Thanksgiving’s over, I plan on diving
in to Christmas head first, and I know that everything will get done
eventually. I really just want to enjoy the holiday season because it
truly is my favorite time of year.

Instead of getting
up at the crack of dawn this morning to go shopping, we’re going to take
a family drive up to Rocky Mountain National Park. I’m hoping to stop
and get a Christmas tree on the way home, and I’m really looking forward
to getting the Christmas decorations up in the apartment. My mom, my sister, and I may
go out and do a little shopping later this afternoon, but I really just want to enjoy
the time I have left with my family and I’ll worry about getting
Christmas presents later.

I hope that y’all had a great
Thanksgiving, and if you are out shopping today I hope that you’re
finding some fantastic deals! Xoxo
