Christmas Wish List

Spread the love

Ever since Sunday Night dinner this last weekend and Earl talking about misspelling Christmas to Chritmas (she got distracted), that’s how I seem to want to say it.

Don’t worry, I know the reason for the season and I’m all about Christmas and not Xmas however I did have someone show me how the X is a Roman or Greek or something (I forget now) symbol that stands for Christ somehow… but anyway I’m still all about spelling it out!

Anyway since Christmas is Sunday and I’ll bet some of you still haven’t run out and bought me a Christmas present yet, I’ll do up my Christmas list for you…

1.  Back in junior high, a kid that sat next to me in Science class was always in to these foreign sports cars.  I learned at a young age what a Lamborghini was, and so I’ve always joked that I would like one.  It wouldn’t be very practical for me, but heck, a girl can dream big right?!?!  Then a couple years ago I made a deal with some guy at work that he’d buy me one if something happened (heck maybe hell had to freeze over, I don’t really remember the deal), but I told him I wanted a lime green one.


2.  Now obviously the Lamborghini won’t pull a horse trailer, so I’d also like one of these please


2011 will work, the 2012 would be better, but I would like a F350 Super duty, King Ranch, Crew Cab, 4×4.  I really don’t want a dually, I prefer the single wheel although if you want to get me the dually, I won’t object!  And have you seen the interior of a King Ranch?  It’s the Cowboy Cadillac of interiors!


3. Now, as I walked around the Futurity a few weeks ago and oooh’ed and ahhh’ed about the living quarter trailers, I’m torn.  My mom has always said, if you’re going to “go on vacation” because showing horses is fun, why have to clean up after yourself… so she has a point… so I’m not sure if I’d like a trailer with living quarters in it or not…  But I would like a 5 or 6 horse slant trailer please.  I won’t be picky and you decide if you want to buy the living quarters or not for me, k?  I do prefer an aluminum one though… lighter weight, better gas mileage for the truck 🙂


4.  Now that we are decked out to drive to work, haul to horse shows… let’s move on to a new house.  I would prefer a thousand+ acre ranch, but I won’t be picky.  I’d settle for 250-500 acres.


5.  I also like a good Tiffany’s anything.  Can’t go wrong with Tiffany’s!  Ask Holly Golightly (Breakfast at Tiffany’s played by the lovely Audrey Hepburn)


6.  I would take a trip to here:


Or here:


Here is good too:


Here is good as well!


You can always send me back here! Any island will do!


But the truth of the matter… I went extreme extreme here.  What do I really want for Christmas?  I want my family.  All the money in the world can’t bring what really matters to me for Christmas.  Yes Money is nice and helpful but let’s not lose sight of the TRUE reason for the seasons.  With the economy the way it is these days, not everyone can afford a lot of things, and it’s ok to say, No, I can’t or won’t buy you that.

That’s not to say that if someone gave me one of these or all of things I would turn it down… LOL… So please send all presents to me…

Haha, but truthfully remember what the reality of this time of the year is and never lose sight of that.  We really need to teach our children this too so that we never lose sight!

Christmas is just 5 days away!  Are you ready?

Merry Christmas!

  1. That truck is gorgeous! And I'd take any number of those trips too. Haha

    Family really is the reason for the season… I'll take them to Hawaii with me! 😉

  2. I don't even know how big 1000 acres is! It's probably my whole neighborhood. Ha! I want someone to give you a trip to NY too!! LOL

  3. I am soooooo ready!!

    20 years ago….I would have loved all those cowboy things on your list. But now I”m a city girl!

  4. haha! I'm big on Extreme Christmas lists…this year, I asked for a house (on the water), a Mustang, Sens season tickets, and a husband. Not too much to ask, right?! 🙂

  5. Awesome Christmas list! I'd take everything as well, except for #1. Just make it two trucks instead. 🙂
    And what's fun for me…..I have been to all the destinations you mentioned. Traveling for work {and one college study abroad opportunity} can be fantastic! 🙂

  6. Your list is impressive! I hope you get at least one of those trips too.

    I want my family too. Now that we're growing, the only day my immediate family could all get together (with parents and my brother and his family) is the day after Christmas. I don't like it. Now my aunt and her family can't do that day. It's a mess. All I want is for my family to get together like we used to. But something from Tiffany's would surely make me feel better since the sickies took off with my body yesterday.

    Thanks for linking up with us!

    P.S. Yes! I'm finally ready for Christmas (minus my baking)

  7. This list is very impressive, I would like several of those things too. Are you willing to share? My oldest want a King Ranch so bad, I just don;t she her in, she drives a little convertible now, that's a big difference!

    I've wanted to go to Australia since I was a little girl, one day I'll make it there!

    You have a very Merry Christmas, or Chritmas, and thanks for linking up!

  8. Love Chicago! I did grow up there though- so I'll take the trip to Australia!

    But yes, family is what it is all about.
