Currently Coveting Entertaining Fashion & Beauty Lifestyle

my grown up christmas list.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7| 8 | 9 | 10 | 11

When I was little, I knew Christmas was around the corner when the Sears Wishbook arrived in the mail. The extra-large catalogue would show up on our doorstep chalk full of all the toys a small child could dream of. After fighting over it with my little brother (and obviously winning. superior being and all ) I would excitedly go through it, diligently cutting out every item I hoped to find under the tree come Christmas morning.

I like to think that my taste has been somewhat refined since the era of popples, play-doh hair salons and newborn nancy dolls. While I no longer tear through a sears catalogue around this time, I do manage to get excited for the anticipation of what’s to come and couldn’t help but paste together a collection of items that are on my radar this year.

    All I’ve ever wanted was a Kitchen Aid mixer *sigh* Great layout! It’s so pretty to look at.

    I want that mixer! Some friends gave me ‘Seasons’ for my birthday last year – the food is amazing and the photography even better.

    I totally used to do that with the Sears catalog as well! I guess not much has changed, in that I still find myself coming up with an extensive wish list every year of things I didn’t even know I wanted until AFTER I perused available lovelies. Only now I do it online and the wishes are much more expensive. Haha. Great list!
