Pop Culture Give Away Winners...

Ok, as corny as this may sound, my #1 wish this year is that me and my family spend some really special moments together...You know those moments you feel like a kid again and get that warm fuzzy feeling inside, the one that seems to fade as you get older. Other than that, I just want to see my family get all the things they are hoping for. ;)

#1 on my wish list is some good luck baby dust so that I can be a mama next year....my hubby and I are starting to try after Xmas.

Number one on my Christmas list is a red pea coat.

These products look so cool :)
*****************************************************************
Send me your addy's and you'll be getting a fun present in the mail sometime next week.

Thanks for the fascinating Christmas wishes. Its true that we all have these little lists in our minds of things that would be such a treat and its kind of fun to not feel guilty about them at Christmas time because they may actually be possible gifts. I think we all also have those images in our minds of what the perfect Christmas season would be and how some of those aren't possible due to health, time, distance, hurt feelings, finances, etc.

This Christmas my number one wish is for my husband to be successful in the goals he's setting for himself so that we can have our own place soon. The house part has been #1 on that wish list in my head for about two years. Its not been a tormenting wish but a hopeful one. I severely look forward to decorating my own two-story, Craftsman style home with a cement front porch and tall trees in the yard. I need an old house with the history it holds to paint and fill with blankets and happy sounds. For now we are thankful for where we are and the ways its made life a little lighter.
Its a little chilly inside today so I've cut up some oranges and apples and covered them with cinnamon, brown sugar and a drop of vanilla and stuck them in the oven for the afternoon on 225 degrees. Its filled the house with a lovely Christmasy smell and warmed up the kitchen a little. Its one of those things I look forward to doing at least once every December. We've also been playing Sufjan Steven's 'Songs for Christmas' album on repeat all week. If you haven't heard of him or are looking for some new Christmas tunes, you should give it a try.

Love to all and warmness on the inside!
