Christmas Wishlist 2011

It's that time of year again to drop (obvious) hints to my Near and Dear (that's you, Hubby). This year I've just thrown some things onto the list, but it's only to get him thinking, not necessarily things I must have. Last year he knocked off multiple items off the list(!) - although I didn't get one of them until months later because he hid it in behind a co-workers whiteboard so that I wouldn't find it. Too bad he had forgotten about it... But I mustn't forget that I did receive an early gift that dragged swept me by surprise. We'll see what this year brings. We even bought stockings for each family member despite having no place to hang them!

Item #1
Ugg Mini Kimono in grey (size 6), (6pm.com, $89)
Why I like it
(1) My current and only Uggs are reaching the end of their life.
(2) They keep my feet warm in the winter.
(3) They are one of the few closed toe shoes that I'll wear.

Note: It's now out of stock. :(

Item #1
Louis Vuitton Stephen Sprouse Leopard Scarf (brown), (2008 LE, $1350)
Why I like it
(1) I suppose it doesn't have to be this particular one, but it's cute and warm.
(2) It's a versatile piece.
(3) It's purrrty (puahaha).

Item #2
Calphalon Nonstick Pots and Pans (Macy's/Williams-Sonoma, varies)
Why I like it
(1) My stash has been fairly abused with metal utensils and high temperatures by others in the kitchen.
(2) Cleaning nonstick is non-stressful.
(3) It's an investment that allows me to serve my family daily.

Item #3
West Elm Charity Mug, ASPCA (westelm.com, $10)
Why I like it
(1) Husband won't buy me a real French Bulldog.
(2) Mugs are practical.
(3) It's for a good cause.

Item #4
Western Digital External Hard Drive 3TB Passport, (staples.com, $150)
Why I like it
(1) I take hundreds of pictures each week.
(2) My computer is slowing down.
(3) In case of a fire, I can only grab two things, Selah with my left arm and this in my right.

Item #5
A 3br 2ba House, (Bay Area, $400-600k)
Why I like it
(1) I would like our own washer/dryer for the several loads of laundry each week.
(2) White walls are getting boring.
(3) Selah needs crawling space, and it's a long term investment? 

I'm noticing quite the difference between this year's list to the one from last year. I need to get a bigger Christmas stocking.

What's big on your Christmas wishlist this year?
