All we want for Christmas...

The Regulator's head is about to explode because Lisa keeps sending her gift requests. Apparently she can't make up her mind. She wants riding boots, then Uggs, then yoga pants--the ones that will give her six-pack abs.

Ever since we were playing around with Polyvore for Kate, I've wanted to chuck my entire wardrobe out the window.

So here are a few of our top holiday picks this year. Too bad our husbands don't read the blog.

1. Riding Boots. It's no secret that fashion makes its way around to Cleveland approximately 2 years after NYC and 10 years after Europe, but we like them and we want them.

2. Miracle Yoga/Dress Pants. Guaranteed six-pack abs. End of story.

3. But...if those don't work, there's always this.

4. Stella and Dot Charm Necklace. We're digging the gold leaf, letter charm and birthstone. So pretty!

5. Fingerless Gloves. We're cold blooded gals forever layering sweatshirts, socks and jackets to keep warm. Heat is expensive. These are not.

6. New Uggs. See number 5.

7. And, of course, this. And this. And this too.

8. Finally, 1 Sleeping Baby. Or a six hour stretch. We'll take what we can get.

What's on your list this year?

Oh, sleeping baby...yes. One of the most precious gifts. Sleep deprivation is so rough. I think it should be called a handicap. Seriously. (My #4 child did not sleep through the night 'til he was 20 freaking months! WTH>>)

And yeah, Maine's pretty slow on the fashion front. We still wear shammy shirts. Hah...

Matthew Rush said...

Mostly I want books. And an iPad, and an agent. Socks and underwear are good too.

Lydia Sharp said...

I would love a sleeping baby, too. But alas, it did not happen for us this year. *le sigh*

Uggs? Definitely. My toes are numb no matter how many layers of socks I pile on.

Anne Gallagher said...

Definitely Uggs. And those Miracle Yoga pants if they'll give me the abs. (Of course they'll have to work with the fat blockers to see the abs.)

An agent would be nice, and maybe a couple of good books.

Oh, and Peace on Earth. I always want that.

The cover for "Across the Universe" is gorgeous. I don't usually pick up a book based on the cover (I look at the title and back cover summary first), but that cover would definitely make me pick it up!

1. My poor post-neutered dog to heal quickly he's already had the complications now he needs to heal.

2. A fast laptop that will last for more then 20 minutes on battery life, that doesn't overheat and doesn't weight a ton.

3. A whole new wardrobe xD.

4. Bookshelves! My books need proper homes.

5. Bedroom furniture that matches.

6. Someone to do my Christmas shopping for me.

7. A thicker sweater because the office is too cold.

I'm buying a HUGE a stocking today so that Santa can leave me an agent under the tree this year. :D

Little Ms J said...

Eight hours of uninterrupted sleep, a wand to make smarmy business men do what I want and vacation to get here already. Mr. J already gave me my Christmas present - a beautiful diamond pendant necklace. As much as I kid, I can't want for anything else. Seriously. He told me that would make me a total brat.

K. M. Walton said...

I REALLY want #7 second 'this' too!!!! And I'm asking for Nook Color and the complete LOST series boxed set : )

Creepy Query Girl said...

All I want for christmas is a Lit Agent
A lit agent

All I want for christmas is a lit agent. Fa la la la la

Mariah Irvin said...

I'm going to China in January, I suspect that all my gifts will be related to that. I know I'm getting a new winter coat, because it's gonna be flippin' freezing!

yabooknerd said...

you mean besides the Liar Society? :D

Dara said...

I want those yoga pants. I'm at that point where I'm outgrowing my normal clothes but can't get into the maternity ones yet. Yoga pants would be great. Especially those, where I might be able to get away wearing them to work.

Anyway the only thing that was on my list this year was a Nook, and I was there on Black Friday when my in-laws purchased it :)

Marsha Sigman said...

This is so weird. I was just thinking the other day that I wish I had a pair of those gloves with the fingertips cut out. But 'fingerless gloves' is so much easier to say. I love them.

And those boots would fit in nicely with my collection. I want way too many things for Christmas.

Elana Johnson said...

Oooh, my vote is for the sleeping baby! Uh, good luck with that? Yeah, good luck!

Nicole Zoltack said...

Definitely sleeping baby. Anthony got up 4 times last night. And he had been only getting up 1. *cries*

Although I wouldn't mind a tummy tuck. Is that cheating? I think hubby thinks so but it's probably just because he doesn't want to pay for it. Not that I would seriously get one.

Krispy said...

I hope you get at least some of the things on your list! :) I love boots, especially riding boots like that.

Thanks to your Polyvoring, I went to Polyvore, which lead me to Modcloth, and now I want a bunch of new coats and dresses.

So in other words, clothes and shoes and books and sleep are also on my list this year. At least I already have fingerless gloves (definitely get some!).

Sara B. Larson said...

Ooh, I loved Across the Universe and Delirium. Can't wait to own them. And I can't wait to get Anna. I've heard such great things about it.

As for me, well, I think you know what I want. ;)

Lola Sharp said...

I admit I'm spoiled. I don't have one single thing on my list, because I have everything I want. Husband has been begging me for a list, but I seriously have everything. I was hoping for something on your list to spark my interest, but either I have it (Anna and the French Kiss, 9 pairs of Uggs, 2 pairs of Fryes, plenty of yoga pants...though not those. Let me know if they work...then I might be interested.) *sigh*

Nicole L Rivera said...

An agent would be nice. And, if they come two for one a pub deal wouldn't hurt. :)

Kathi Oram Peterson said...

First I asked for a Kindle, than an Ipad, then a Kindle. Can't make up my mind which one I would use the most. Poor Hubby doesn't know what to do. I'd be happy with anything except red, flannel pjs. ;) But then again . . .

Colene Murphy said...

Checking those things out! Great list! I want a pair of Uggs too! So cute!!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Digging those riding boots. Super cute!! But, okay, you left something off your list. Just sayin.

Wish I knew how to link it, but I'm lame. Still. You don't want to miss it. The shoulder pads could go, but the abs? Oh GAWWWWWD.

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
