A Few of My Favorite Things

Every year, my mother asks me what I want for Christmas to which I reply the usual, “nothing”. In recent years, I’ve even taken the extreme approach of the advent conspiracy theorist, ranting about how grossly commercialized Christmas has become, how wild horses couldn’t drag me into a mall during the month of December, the tragic influence of Western consumer indulgence on the next generation, blah blah blah.

Lady Lullabuy’s 2010 Holiday Wish List

That voice! Such passion. Such bitter affliction. I tear up every time I hear it!

I love all things London, including this London big print by Blanca Gomez. Check out her Cosas Minimas collection on Etsy. This one happens to be my favorite, but there are so many adorable prints to choose from.

As I mentioned in my Cold Feet post, it is FREEZING in Charlotte, and you can never have enough warm socks.

I mentioned these to Christyn yesterday and she thought I was using profanity when I said I wanted some MUKLUKS for Christmas. Must have been a bad connection.

    I wasn’t going to post this, but figured I’d give you and your readers a laugh. My most memorable Christmas present (not best but memorable) was from my grandparents. Drum roll please…Susan Sommers thigh master! My cousin and I both got them. How’s that for self esteem when you’re 11!
