Last week I shared one item on my holiday wish list via “The 12 days of Holidays” blog series hosted by Shannon at What’s Up Whimsy. Here’s a few other items on my wish list this year… funny, usually I don’t have a wish list.
1) Married to an Olympian drives my effort to celebrate and support Olympic athletes. I would love a pair of these Olympic Red Mittens… aren’t they fun? 2) I would also love a new purse, one that I can strut when I’m sans kids. I’m fancying this one from COACH but the price tag is something I would never pay for a purse, which leaves me thinking - I’ll just wait to until our trip to Florida in the spring and visit a COACH outlet as I did last spring.
3) Our existing Jamie Oliver T-Fal pots are showing their age so I’m hoping for a new Jamie Oliver Stainless Steel pot set. I also like the Gordon Ramsey set by Royal Dalton but the price tag is over the top. 4) This initial coffee mug seems like a fun way to enjoy my morning cup of coffee ~
Finally, we all know that it’s better to give than to receive and this year we are giving to two charities. We are donating to Yellow Brick House.
We always like to donate to local charities in an effort to help, some way, to those who are near. This shelter provides emergency shelter and outreach services to women and children of abusive relationships… so it just seems like a good thing to do. We have donated to them before.
We are also contributing to Staci’s, from Staci Edwards blog, “Fill A Stable For Christmas” Donation Drive.
Last month, Staci started an amazing donation drive through World Vision. Her goal is to raise $3,600 to purchase three stables of farm animals for a community in poverty, in Uganda. What a great way to share the some holiday cheer… to donate, visit Staci’s blog here.
What’s on your wish list this year? Are you donating to any charities?
