My Christmas Wishlist

We're keeping it pretty low key around here this Christmas. Instead of buying each other gifts, my Husband and I are having a date day/night in the city next week! There will be a little shopping, but mostly we're looking forward to a nice dinner out and the Symphony that evening.

But, that's not to say Mama doesn't have her very own Christmas list. ;)

ONE.
First on the list? This baby right here. The Canon 6D. Now if I was being greedy, I'd be listing the Canon 5D Mark III. But, the 6D would give me an upgrade from what I have, and suit my needs just fine. I just really need a full frame camera.

TWO.
Hunter Rain Boots. I actually just bought a pair of less expensive rain boots. But I've kinda always wanted a pair of these. I've heard nothing but good things about them. Hunter Boots come in all kinds of awesome colors, but I'm loving this color, it's called Lagoon!

THREE.
I am in love with this dress! I don't even know where I would wear it, but I want it. I'll take that necklace she's wearing, too. ;)

FOUR.
Last Christmas, I got the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette, and I LOVE it. It's the only eye shadow I ever use! It's not cheap, but definitely worth every penny. And this year, the Naked 3 Palette has yet again, made my Christmas wish list. I'm loving the pinkish colors.

FIVE.
Sketch Leaf Duvet cover set. Like I mentioned this previous post, I crave change. Anything I can change easily. Like, my duvet cover. But the thing is, my Husband kinda despises my obsession with constantly changing out our bedding... so I highly doubt I'll get this from him. lol. But I'm just really into orange lately!! Our room is really soft colors (white, grey, blue), so I think the orange would add a nice pop of color!

SIX.
While we're on the topic of bedrooms, I really really want a new dresser. The Hemnes 8 drawer dresser from Ikea, to be exact!! When we first moved into our house, I got sick of all of our brown furniture, so on a whim, I bought a new white bed, and had the hubby paint our brown nightstands white. I also bought new lamps and painted our walls because I just wanted LIGHT & BRIGHTNESS in our room. The only thing I haven't replaced yet, is our brown dresser. So... this would be would make my bedroom dreams complete.

And that's my Christmas wishlist. And I call it a WISHlist, because honestly, most of this stuff is more than we need to be spending right now. But I WANT it all. lol

What's on your wishlist??

I once saw a girl wearing those exact boots! I had asked her if I could take a picture because of how well she pulled rainboots off with the outfit. I blogged about it, haha. She felt special though.
I'd love to get a DSL camera!

I want the 6D so badly! I'm hoping they come out with a MKII for it next year or something so I can get the 6D for a cheaper price. But that's just wishful thinking lol. I've been using the 5D MKI and I love it but it's just old and I need that new fancy technology lol.

Ashlea with an a said...

Love your list! I myself have always wanted a pair of hunters and that exact dresser!!! I wouldn't mind the urban decay as well Haha

Stephanie Clark said...

Mandy! Sometimes I think we are the same person... this could so be my list. New camera - full frame (not happening this year!), I hunter boots in black I sent my mom on the 'hunt' for, bought the naked 3 palette for myself (birthday month at sephora -woot woot), I picked up a black and white dress like that (3/4 sleeve) at target saturday night for my "holiday party" dress - I'm not sure what kind of glamorous life I think I lead, so I didn't get it. anyway, Happy Monday!

Anne U @ hot coffee mama said...

Agreed with new camera, it just gets so dark here in Wisconsin in the winter and I need higher ISO capabilities, I'm sure you can relate.

Jodi said...

Good list! I would like the camera, boots and Naked 3 too please!!!

Joy R Mac said...

I had the brown version of that dresser and i really liked it!! good pick!

Laura said...

I would like a full frame camera too. Saving up!

Whitney M. @ The Married Me said...

I'd love to replace some bedroom furniture myself! Our bedroom is the one place we have really invested nothing into since we moved in. Mismatched side tables, cheap bed frame, cheaper mattress, random dresser (you get the picture)

Eva Marie Taylor said...

I love that you guys are making your gifts to eachother a nice night out on the town! So much more memorable, I'm sure! I also would LOVE a nice camera rather than all my photos taken from my iPhone!

Ariel @ Dreams To Do said...

I just got the 6D for my birthday!!! Normally I don't get anything quite that big, but it was the big 3-0 so I went for a camera instead of the vacation I was craving. :) HUGE upgrade for me from the Rebel. Now I just have to get a better lens and figure out how to use the thing!

Kate @ Another Clean Slate said...

Love, love that dress! And I would be lost without my Hunters especially on days like today so I think you should order some... like right now :)

The girls said...

I'd like anything really. Last Christmas, my husband got me absolutely nothing. Nada. Of course, I got him and our daughter presents, but I was left out. If you can't tell, I'm a little bitter about it.

And yes on the full frame camera! That's my dream gift - all holidays and birthdays combined. For years.

Courtney said...

I really, really, really love the color of those boots! I'm also jonesing for that naked palette as well. Great list!

Love that list! An upgraded camera is on my wishlist. I'm a Nikon girl (sorry) ;), but I really need ANYTHING better than my D5000. ANYTHING. I've had it forever and I'm just ready to move on. We don't exchange gifts since we pretty much just buy whatever we want and my husbands birthday is on the 21st so I buy him a birthday gift instead (which is still hard to think of). I'm a horrible gifter. Anyway. ;) You have a great list going~

Kenzie @ Life According to Kenz said...

The Naked 3 palette is on my wishlist, too! LOVE the colors!

Laura @ The Everyday Joys said...

Oh, I love your list! I'll take one of each of these as well, Santa. :)

Fran said...

Love your list! I wrote mine a couple of weeks ago (http://www.freeborboleta.com/2013/11/christmas-wish-list-2013/) it's pretty low key, though I could totally go for a new camera! haha

Whitney H said...

Thank you for sharing that dresser! I'm totally in love with it. We're in serious need for a new one, so I'm totally sending this to hubby. :)

Erika Lee @ A Tiny Rocket said...

Love your list.. Hunters were a at Costco for $75... which is almost half off original price. :)

Stephanie said...

I love all of these items!

I was at Costco, and wanted to buy the Hunters that they had for $79, but I already have boots in good condition, so I couldn't justify it. I LOVE the Lagoon color!

I bought the original Naked palette about 4 years ago, and ended up returning it because I already had similar colors. I still second-guess that decision to this day! It was great quality and I love Urban Decay.

I actually have 3 of the same white Hemnes dressers in my house. 1 is in Aiden's nursery, and the other 2 are on either side of our fireplace in the living room. I created a "custom" built-in look. I love those dressers!

Jordan said...

The Naked 3 is on my list as well! I just love the pink shades!!

Krista said...

I just saw a girl wearing Hunter boots today and I loved them!! Also--you're definitely making me want Urban Decay makeup. I did ask for a gift card to Utla so...we'll see. I'm kinda stuck with my Nikon D5000 but I'm hoping for a 35 f1.8 lens :)

Kiara Buechler said...

Um where the heck was that duvet set when I was redoing my bedroom a year ago it is EXACTLY what I had been looking for. Target must be inside my head. Your wishlist is great, so many nice things! Which symphony are you going to see?

Mason's Mama said...

I too want the Naked palette and the Hunter boots! I am a Nikon girl...but some days wonder what Canon is like!! Great list!

Stefanie said...

We just got both Hemnes dressers and... I love them! They look great in any room and make it pop. Highly recommend!

Emma said...

We have the same dresser but in black. I love it. We have the wardrobe and bed to match. Great list!

Kate Rogers said...

Love those Hunter boots as well!! Hoping maybe for my birthday I can get a pair!
