My Christmas Wish List

Hey all!

I've been super busy lately between trips back and forth to Indy (I still work every once in a while in the ER back home).  My poor mama also broke her ankle and tore her ACL when some turd knocked her down, so I've been hanging out with her a lot after her ankle surgery.

Anyways, I thought I'd share a few things on my Christmas wish list.  I had a really hard time coming up with a list this year.  I feel like I have a lot of what I need, and the things that I want are mostly baby things, haha.

So here it is:

1.) Gap Super Soft Leggings in Gray Buy it here 

I can still wear my pre-pregnancy leggings, but the waist band can be a bit uncomfortable.  I like how maternity leggings typically have a wider waistband, so they don't cut into your sides.  This pair from the Gap has gotten rave reviews, and they typically always have awesome online coupons.

2.) Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture buy it here

I'm a huge Andy Cohen fan.  He produces the Real Housewives, and Watch What Happens Live is one of my favorite shows.  I know that his new book just came out, but I figured I'd get caught up and read his first one.

3.) Liz Lange Maternity Pullover Sweater Buy it here

Ok, first of all...these are on sale for $13 right now.  I'll take one in every color.  Bonus: it's long enough to cover that pregnant booty, so you can wear it with leggings and boots, and you're good to go.

4.) Benefit: They're Real Mascara Buy it here

I'm a HUGE fan of this mascara, but it is on the pricier side.  I feel like I go through mascara fairly quickly, so I end up needing a lot of it.  When I don't feel like shelling out the money, I go for drugstore...but it's just not the same.  My lashes are ready to have this stuff back!

5.) Super Soft Crew Neck Maternity Tee Buy it here

I'm in LOVE with these shirts from Gap.  They're super soft, give enough stretch for a growing belly, but are thin enough to layer.  I don't like scoop or v necks in the winter, so this crew neck is just perfect.

6.) Peace for Pits Donation Check Them Out Here

I follow Peace for Pits on Facebook, and these little faces just get me every time.  They do a lot of work with pulling dogs from Chicago Animal Care and Control, which is very high kill and crowded. These people do amazing things for pit bulls and need all the help they can get.

7.) Lush Bath Bomb buy it here

We have a big beautiful bathtub, complete with TV, and I've only used it once.  I have a feeling that as I become more rotund, I'll enjoy baths more and more.  These bath bombs make your skin super soft and don't stain your tub.  No one wants a heavy clean up job after a bath!

8.) The Terrible and Wonderful Reasons Why I Run Long Distances buy it here

I'm a HUGE fan of the Oatmeal, and his comic on running was absolutely amazing.  I've read it several times.  Check it out here.  I'm super excited to see an entire book of this!

9.) Women's Rollover-Waist Jersey Lounge Pants in Tall buy it here

These look SO comfy, and I'm always trying to find lounge pants that are long enough.  These come in petite, regular, and tall.  The rollover waist looks perfect for pre or post baby, and I'm sure I'll end up owning these in every color.

So that's all I have for today.  What is on your Christmas list?


  1. You'll really enjoy Andy Cohen's book. It's so funny! Come link up today!

  2. I bet Andy's book is really funny. Baths are amazing, I really need to take more of them.

  3. I read the Oatmeal book and thought it was pretty hilarious (and so many true things about running!).

    I had a hard time coming up with things I wanted too. My baby is due in January and I mostly want things for him! Adult life! Lol

  4. Great list! Love all the maternity tops! Great deals too! I have a few shirts in the Liz Lange brand and I love them!

  5. Hope your mom feels better soon and has a speedy recovery! I LOVE the Benefit mascara. I had gotten a sample from Sephora 3 years ago and I never looked back. The price is a little annoying, but SO worth it.
