Monday Listicles

Hi list makers!

Thank you so much for joining me over at Kim’s last week. I am so chuffed and amazed by your thoughtfulness. You rock.

Next week the topic will be chosen by Amanda. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find her blog among the lists and see what she wants us to write about. To make it a little easier on you: Amanda is a busy mom of a pretty girl called Lilah and a wife to a wonderful man. Also she takes beautiful photographs. I just made it very easy for you!

In the mean time, let us share our Christmas wish lists.

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!

10 THINGS I HOPE FOR THIS CHRISTMAS

1. To sleep in on Christmas morning.

2. To wake up to a spotless house.

3. For Santa to pay elves major overtime for cleaning my house.

4. To not put any weight on and eat all I want over the Holidays.

5. To unwrap a new lens.

6. For my son to continue being as obedient throughout December and into New Year.

7. To make people smile, on camera and off.

8. For someone to invent a dog brushing machine.

9. Warm and cozy socks.

10. For no child to ever die of thirst or hunger.

    A dog brushing machine is a great idea. You should work on that.

    Your list is awesome :) They all sound perfect to me…except the dog brushing one, but that’s only because I don’t have a dog…but I’ll wish for one for you :)

      Thank you Jen. I brush my dog for hours and no closer to him looking anything but shaggy. I suppose it is good for my biceps :)

    That’s a pretty good list. I think I agree with darn near every one – except a don’t have a dog, or a camera. Maybe I should wish for some?

      Start with a camera, no need to walk it or pick up after it. But I think those pretty Manolos should still be priority.

      Been eating lots of Sour Patch. Not sure if that is due to flying solo or not ;) We deserve lots of sock, right?

    I really need some new cozy holiday socks. I pulled out the few pairs of festive socks that I have, but most of them are pretty thin on the bottom.
