What I’m Loving {Christmas List Edition}

by Lauren on November 25, 2012

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, most of the world is starting to become engrossed in the holiday spirit.  Christmas music is being sung, decorations are being dusted off, and crowds are forming every and anywhere you go.  It’s definitely that time of year.

For most, this is a cherished time.  People anxiously wait all year for the few weeks leading up to this most beloved holiday. What’s not to love; cookies, carolers, parties, Bing Crosby singing sweet little reminders to “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”  Yep, it’s a glorious time of year.

So then why in the world can I not get into the Christmas spirit? 

This is very unlike me, but this year, I’m just not into it.  I’m hoping the seasonal bug hits me soon because it will come and go before I know it.  I have no desire to decorate, no desire to start shopping, and no desire to turn on the Christmas tunes.  It’s sad. I know what you’re thinking, “what is wrong with this Grinch,” and you have every right to.

Even though my Christmas joy has yet to make its appearance, I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t started to think about my Santa wish list.  Let’s be honest, I’ve been pinning my Christmas wants all year, and now I feel sort of guilty even showing you this after I just confessed my aversion for all things festive, but it’s all I’ve got.  Maybe next week I’ll have some pictures of our decorated tree or a plate of freshly baked cookies, or maybe I’ll just live this holiday season vicariously through all of your Instagrams.  Either way, I’ll start to work on my cheer.

    Those boots are killer!

  2. Love the boots, bag, and yoga mat! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday! 🙂

  3. i’m not in the mood to go shopping this year either! I’m hoping once I put the Christmas tree up I get more into the Holiday spirit… I have been listening to Christmas music though nonstop! (: I love 101.3!

    Checking out your wish list: I love those Toms! I have an iPad and love it! You would definitley love yours too!

    We have started to decorate…i like christmas…i just love summer so much more ;). Those toms are adorable. We are talking about finally buying a real camera for christmas

  5. I know this is going to sound so dowdy, but for Christmas this year, I really want some cute house slippers! This is something I will never buy for myself because I’m too cheap (ahem) frugal. 😛

  6. You’ve have some great stuff on your wish list! The Christmas spirit will find you and having a wishlist always helps.

  7. The big item on my Christmas list is a Garmin Forerunner 10. And I’m preeetty sure I’m going to get it from my parents… woohoo!

    I know what you mean… there’s so much else going on that I just haven’t quite gotten swept up in Christmas festivities yet! Since we’re moving, though, I’d love things for our new place.

    Ugh, I wouldn’t expect anything less from you than a post like this. “I’m so not into Xmas this year but…here’s a list of what I want.” It would have been nice to acknowledge what Xmas really means, etc, in spite of your lack of holiday cheer this year but no, let’s cut to the chase and let me tell you what **I** want… do you know people in this world are suffering? You are so narcissistic, spoiled and entitled. I can’t stand to read this blog anymore.

  10. I purchased those TOMS back in August to wear at my best friend’s wedding during the reception. They matched our dresses perfectly and went along great with her black, grey and white color scheme. I hope you get them, because you are going to love them!

      Ohh so glad to hear! I’ve never owned a pair of Tom’s but figured it was a good Christmas-list item.

        I have four originals and one pair of wedges – HIGHLY recommend. I hear however that the flats aren’t that comfortable. If you get them let me know and I’ll share some of my cleaning secrets with you 🙂

          Oops…that was me, not Anonymous 🙁

  11. My Christmas list this year is clearly the list of a fitness enthusiast…I’m pretty sure 90% of it has to do with fitness. Hehe 🙂
