    What do you want for Christmas?

    DH keeps asking me this question and I have no clue. This morning he asked Levi, what he should get me for Christmas. Levi responded a phone that will keep me from getting cranky. I guess I need to give the poor guy some sort of answer. What do you all want?

    I've asked for a bottle of my new favorite perfume and a ski jacket (Patagonia Pipe Down) that I can use on the slopes and off. I also hinted about a Vita Mix and new Toyota headphones for the kids to use in my SUV.

    I'm so boring...

    the top of my list is a George Foreman grill -- our outside grill finally fell apart (literally crumbled) after 6 years and 3 moves but we will be moving this summer so I don't want to buy a new one until we get settled (it really is gross to move them) so I want a George Foreman or something similar so we can still "grill"

    the next one on my list is a good hair flat iron, maybe a Chi or the like. My cheapo Revlon from Walmart doesn't cut it for every day use, and since I'll be student teaching next semester & thus need to be put together all 5 days of the week I need something else

    and then I want the new Harry Potter Lego game for the Wii, I don't really play video games but I got the first one last year for Christmas and I enjoy it when I do play on the Wii (every 3 or 4 months, ha!)

    otherwise we are trying to stay low-key for Christmas. DH and I are flying to San Diego 4 days after Christmas and then then 4 of us need to fly back to Kansas next spring to buy a house so we are trying to save money

    We have kept Christmas really low key between the 2 of us for the last several years.

    New running shoes, hot pink Nike Shox.

    And a Coach.

    I saw things I wanted and sent DH links to them. Not much of a surprise but I get what I want!

    DH and I used to exchange gifts, but a few years ago we decided that was silly. So we said we would start buying a bigger gift for the both of us to share. This year we are getting a Nikon DSLR camera, this one to be exact:

    It's already shipped and I can't wait to get it in the mail! I need to snap some pictures for a Christmas card! With 3 boys under 5, I'll never miss a photo op again!

    I'm dying for a necklace made from antique typewriter keys. Some super cute ones available on esty. I also want a french press coffee maker. I always ask for some sort of spa certificate so I can get a facial or a massage....ahhhhhhh...

    Last year I got...a color printer. I will not be happy with some sort of functional practical gift this year!

    seeit2 responded:
    Maybe I'll ask for one of those phones Levi is talking about.

    I made a wish list with books and gift cards on it. Pretty tame, but at the moment I'm spending my free time sorting junk out of my house and getting rid of it - accumulating more is the last thing I feel like doing.

    I'd really like and Xbox with Kinect for the family to share. DD would like some of the games, I think. I would like some of the dancing games to use them to get in shape - got to be more fun than some boring old exercise dvd. DH could play some of his weird fantasy games with his brothers.

    DH usually gets me a Spa giftcard, which I love, but it's all he's given me for the last several Christmases, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. I would like to have something that I could keep to remember what he got for me instead of just getting services, regardless of how wonderful those massages feel at the time.

    I seriously do not really want anything in particular. A few sweaters maybe. But I got a new car that is my present for quite awhile

    I personally would loooove an engagement ring...long story. But starting January 1, DF is going fulltime with his own business and it scares me to death. I am dreaming if I asked for the new suv I've been eyeballing/test drove/priced.
    So I guess I'm not really asking for anything I'll get. Heavy sigh-yes, I know that sounded self centered.

    DH and I don't exchange gifts, but our parents like to send some for us... I asked for an immersion blender. That's it. We're moving this summer, so I've been purging like a madwoman, and we just don't need more stuff. We had to reign them in on DS too...

    But if you are asking what I would really WANT to ask for... I really want the Silhouette Cameo craft cutter. But for $300, it's just not practical, OR in the budget, LOL!

    Steph, how about jewelry, perfume, books, music, artwork...?

    DH and I decided we do not need more stuff so we adopted a cat from the shelter. He is all nestled in my lap happily taking a snoze. the girls(our other 3 cats) on the other hand are sulking in our room.

    DH & I always exchange gifts, but tthis year, there realy isn't mush that I want.

    If he could magically make my belly fat disappear without excerise dieting or surgery, I would be all in, but barring that, it was really hard coming up with a list for him this year- we always make lists to point the other one in the right direction- or even to spell out exaclty what we want-last year DH wanted some CD but it had to be mono, not whatever the other choice is! I gave him a picture of the coat I want- I haven't gotten a new 3/4 length wool coat since before I had the kids.

    This year my list had socks featured prominently- not romantic or cool, I know, but everytime I pull a pair out of my drawer they seem to have holes- no one else in the house has this problem!!! Plus DH buys cool socks for me.

    I also asked for exercise stuff-weights and workout pants and my yearly bottle of perfume- it seems to last exactly one year! I just like having something to open, but have no space or time for anything else since 2012 is the year I will get the baby weight off!! If that happens, next year's lsit will be full of lingerie and sexy clothes!!

    I got a new digital video camera early so that I could video Christmas morning. DH also has a surprise for me - I have no idea what it is.

    We also got a used Suburban. It's a 2004 with only 60k miles so it could not be passed up. It is our new family vehicle.
