If I had a Christmas List




Every time someone asks me what I'd like for my birthday and Christmas this year, I tell them that I've done my wedding registry and that is my list. This is very true--Christopher and I do truly want every item we've registered for, and I'd be thrilled to be gifted any of the items off the list. But the grandmothers want to know about something "fun." A "real" Christmas list.

Okay, fine. I've thought about it. It's not long, or glamorous.

But it's a few little things I'd really like that are fun. 

1. Will & Grace DVD Box Set  I am a major TV junkie. Prior to switching to just Netflix/Hulu, I would watch Bravo, the Today Show, Bridezillas, and other not-so-educational shows 24/7. Somehow I never discovered Will & Grace until two years ago. But let me tell you, Karen Walker is my spirit animal. W&G comes on some channel practically all day every Saturday, and Christopher and I used to watch it together. So without real TV, I've decided I just need the investment of the complete series. Also, complete series are a lot cheaper now than they were back when I wanted all of Gilmore Girls...
2. Harry Potter DVD Box Set  Another thing Christopher and I started watching in order but never finished because 1. No real TV and 2. Christmas on ABC Family only lasts for 25 days. I want to watch all the Harry Potters in order from start to finish. I've only kind of done it once, in middle school, right before the fourth or fifth one came out--me and the girlfriends watched all the previous ones in an order before going to the premier. There is something about these movies that make me feel kind of Christmas-y {Thanks, ABC Family}, but it's not an outright Christmas movie and I think it would help get over the post-Christmas blues while snuggled up away from the cold. 

3. Selfie Stick Okay, I don't want this because I'm a big selfie-r. But because in all reality, once we're married, it will be just the two of us. With no one to take our picture. So it's practically a necessity to get one of these things now.

4. Anything from my "Registry" Pinterest board  I created this board as a place to pin all of those things I'd love as wedding gifts, but couldn't really register for because they came from Kirkland's or an online website or something. Lots of monograms, Christmas ornaments, home decor, cookbooks, and more.

My Christmas List posts are always one of the most popular things I write about. My first Christmas list post in 2013 got over 500 views! Some of those things I still want, and some are things I now can't live without--check it out here. What's on your list this year?
