Mama's wish list

Come on. Let's call a spade a spade (am I old for saying that?) The cute "gift guides" that I keep seeing in blog land are clever disguises for "here is what I want".  It is fun to look at them, get ideas for everyone and of course, do a little dreaming myself! Typically, my list has a LOT of clothes on it. But this year with a bun in the oven, things are a little unique. If I handed my list to Santa today, here is what would be on it...do you have any of them or have them on your list?

Canon Elph 330 HS camera- Everything I've been looking for to complement my DSLR. Wifi capable, smaller, good in low light. Thanks to some amazing sales on Thanksgiving, I have a feeling it might be in Santa's sleigh already ;o)


Plush blanket- We need another layer on our bed in a color that won't get destroyed.

Infantino Sash Mei Tei carrier- Since I returned the Moby, Ergo, and Bjorn last time around, I'm hoping this is the answer for wearing Baby Boy around this Spring.

Mooseberry iPhone case -Since my monogram changed, it is time I update the phone. And I love this wintery case!

Adobe Photoshop Elements- I've been wanting it for a while and finally the price has been cut in half. I hope to make lovely mood boards (instead of inserting one picture at a time into blog posts) and help bring the photos of my kid(s!) to another level. Advice?

Maternity pajamas- I have no link for these because I can't find anything that doesn't make my blood boil. Long sleeve tees and knit pants, anyone? And for a reasonable price? 

Hunter boot socks-  Love my Hunters, and I'm excited to make them transition from rain to snow boots!
No Slip Sparkly headbands-   I think these will do the trick for rushed mornings. Who doesn't love a little sparkle? I like the silver, black, and gold.

A few Winter reads- The girl who fell from the sky, The book of lost things, Sarah's key, The pillars of the Earth, and Kite Runner have been on my must-read list for a while. I will never be able to read all of these any time soon, but it is nice to have a book ready to go when I have some time.

Charming Charlie anything!  Have you been yet?  It is the perfect place to find gifts for every girl on your list. I love it because everything is organized by color and accessorizing is such an easy way to change your wardrobe. And since I'm not buying clothes right now...



Clump Crusher black mascara- Thanks to Kate, I have a new favorite beauty product!

Starbucks gift cards- They are like gold. I actually deleted a gold watch off of this list and added this.

And the seasonal chocolates! Holy caloriefest, this is my favorite time of year for treats like Ghiradelli squares, Peppermint Hugs, Ferrero Rochers, and the new Dove Peppermint Bark Promises.

So there we go, a few of my favorite things and perhaps some ideas for you and your girlfriends!
