What's on Your Wish List?

Missy here. With the craziness of the holiday season, I've been the queen of lists. Of course, some of those lists are provided to me: the kids' Christmas wish lists. My daughter even did hers in green and red markers with fun drawings scattered all over the page. My middle son texted me his list. :) And my oldest, the poor college student...well, he just asked for money.
But a couple of days ago as my oldest son and I were out shopping, he turned to me and asked what I want for Christmas.
I had no idea! Then as we were heading out of the jewelry store, where we'd been shopping for my daughter, I spied a watch. A beautiful watch! Which, of course, I had to try on. :)
I had my son text my hubby to ask if he'd bought me anything yet. We never heard back (he was in a meeting), so we decided we should help my hubby out by going ahead and purchasing it. I mean, how easy is that for his shopping this year? I'm the only one he shops for anyway! LOL
So I'm getting a watch for Christmas. It's under the tree calling my name. And my husband was very grateful for our thoughtfulness. :)
What's on your wish list this year?


  1. Same story here. My oldest son asked what I wanted for Christmas. I didn't know. Now if I'm out shopping, usually alone, I can spot lots of things I'd like to have. But can I remember them when I get home? No. See, if they'd just go with me... Oh, and then there are those times when I see something, tell them, and they don't act. Or more to the point, they act too late. They're learning though.

  2. Good question, Missy : ) By the time I finish finding all the gifts to give on my list, I can't think of a thing I want for myself. Rumor has it that hubby made my gift this year...I can't wait to see it!

    Great post, girlfriend!

  3. Mindy, we just need to start making our list early in the year while we still have a brain cell. :)

  4. Audra, I can't wait to hear what it is!!

    By the way, where did you hear that rumor?? Overly-talkative kids? :)

  5. I'm still needing peace! And lots of sleep. Quiet! No demands from anyone!
