My Christmas Wishlist 2014

I thought it would be fun to put together a little holiday wish list. I remember laying and staring at the toy catalog for HOURS circling every ridiculous toy I could find when I was younger. Kids can be so clueless when it comes to understanding how much things cost. 

As an adult making this list seems equally foolish. We just aren't gift givers in the Newman house. I think of the 8 Christmas' Russ and I have spent together we have exchanged presents once. And let's face it even if we did decide to exchange gifts the chances of me getting a few things on this list would be pretty slim. 

But just like the little girl with her red marker and toy catalog. A computer and Google 25 years later is equally fun. 

1. Garmin Forerunner 15

After a year of running I definitely envy Garmin wearing runners. I like the Forerunner 15 because it can serve as a running Garmin or a fitness band. Two birds, one stone.

2. Canon EOS Rebel T3I

Definitely a far fetch item. The thought of a DSLR has makes me giddy, but I just can't bring myself to pay that much for a camera. I have had my eyes on a Canon DSLR for about 11 years now. Maybe someday I will make the purchase. 

3. Lauren Conrad Slim Bootcut Jeans

Hands down my favorite jeans EVER. They fit me perfectly and I pretty much live in the ones I bought last year. Another pair would be great.

4. Plaid Infinity Scarf

I adore this scarf. SO cute and perfect for fall/winter. I would probably wear it all the time so maybe I should get a couple in different colors. 

5. Cow Creamer

Okay, I know this one seems a bit weird but I have wanted one of these goofy cow creamer things for years now. Why have I not bought one?! I have no clue, it isn't like they are expensive. It just seems like a silly purchase and I try to avid those. I think the only way I will ever get one is if someone else buys it for me. Kohls has them in some really cute colors like this yellow. 

6. Brown Boots

Yup, I still want a new pair of brown boots. Eventually I will cave in and get some. 

7. Purse

I have been purse shopping a lot lately. I know exactly what I want but I can't seem to find it and if I do I don't want to pay what it costs. That combination is like spinning your tires in the mud. You get no where. This one is pretty much exactly what I am looking for. 

So there is my 2014 Christmas Wish list.

What's on your list this year?

  1. love the boots and scarf! so comfy yet so fun looking! As for the camera have you looked at the Sony nex-6? it's what I use and is a super compact dslr and more affordable and does some really cool stuff! Hello erin uses it too if you've seen her amazing photos. it's the only camera I need and I carry it almost everywhere.

  2. Love this! I want a new camera too!!!

  3. Looooove your list!! I really need to make one as well! Eric says he's got me covered but has no ideas to give family... oops!

  4. I just love seeing what other people put on their lists!!! This one is great!! I have jeans and boots on my list too!!

  5. I love everything about that line at Kohl's. I purchased an egg holder a while back & purposely skip that section when I'm there because I would scoop everything up if I could. :) Love the crossbody bag too!

  6. Do you have a running watch??
    Those boots - LOVE!
    I have a pair of Hunter rain boots on my list. They're something I'd never buy on my own. Here's to hoping Santa gets my list this year. :)

  7. I love looking at lists like this! I want practically everrrrrything on your list. I'm definitely the same type of gal in the sense that I will want/need something but will make excuses as to why I don't need to purchase it right then. Even if it is something as silly as a cow creamer. ;) Do you use creamer in your coffee btw? Also, what if you looked at refurbished slr cameras or even open box? It would be a great investment for your entire family :) I'd wear that scarf daily too!

  8. I pretty much love everything on your list but I am especially LOVING that plaid scarf! I have many scarves but not that one. Here's hoping if I put it on a list, Santa Seth will get one for me!

  9. Cute purse. Adore the cow creamer! I've only made a list as I've blogged, because it is fun. I've rarely gotten things off of it and it doesn't matter. I asked Chris for one thing this year I've had my eye on for a while, and i think it is 20ish bucks. The rest of my wishes are just a little absurd ha. Actually last year's was pretty reasonable! I guess I just went nuts this year.
