Holiday Wants!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Mine was great, with a little hiccup of a minor chest cold. Ugh...seriously. I'm going on 1 illness per month for the past 3 months. NOT COOL. Vitamins, sleep, exercise, washing my hands....what more can I do? Anyway, at least it wasn't too bad, all that remains is a stubborn cough that I, and I'm sure Jared, could do without.

On to bigger and better things, it's nearly December and that means it's almost time for my favorite holiday of the year! With all the blogs I follow, I see so many things I want, it's really not healthy for my finances. :) Perhaps I can ask for a few of these from my family. Here's just a few items that have caught my eye this season:


I love me some chai! This special blend of chocolate and chili added to a traditional chai spice is offered by David's Tea, and it has certainly piqued my interest! The added spice is sure to act as an immediate warming agent on a frigid Kansas winter day. Typically, spicy foods are not my favorite, but over the past 2 years my tastebuds are doing a 180 on me. I think I need to try this version of a chai, just out of pure curiosity.


This adorable blue gemstone necklace from Elephantine on Etsy. As much as I love all the fun, enormous (and cheap) jewelry from my Forever21, sometimes I just crave something a little more simple. Something that I can wear with almost anything. Lately, finding a necklace out of my oversized options has been more of a task than usual, and many times I've opted to boycott all of them. Time for a change.


My poor little phone has been begging for a makeover. :) I love the lavender shade of this case. Maybe I'll get around to making a new ringtone once the outside gets a change as well. It's amazing, strike that, embarrassing how excited I get about a new phone case.


Taking my dream of opening an Etsy store of my own another step further, one of these is certainly on my wish list. My back AND our new coffee table would certainly appreciate it. This is a dream item, as I'm sure I could find many more wishes to be granted towards items for our new house instead. But hey, this is what the blog is for right?. Sound off, 1-2-3-4...


While blogging, I am reminded of how much I need one of these lap desks. Is this the most glorious looking option? I doubt it, but it certainly fits the bill. This, or some form of this would be a blessing to my burning legs. Does anyone know of any cuter options out there?!

That's all for now, there are plenty more where that came from though. :) Enjoy the rest of your holiday break everyone!


  1. Try taking echinacea (sp?) for your cold. I take it at the first hint of a cold, and it really works.

  2. Thank you for the advice, I will definitely try it! Hopefully I won't have to ANYTIME soon. :)
