Wednesday Wishlist/December's Favorite Things...



Beauty and the Greek

What an exciting's Annie and my first Wednesday Wishlist for December AND I'm also teaming up with Emily & Kylie for their monthly link-up.  Seeing as this is my most favorite time of the year I have A LOT of things I'm excited about.  So without further ado, these are a few of the things I'm wishing for/excited about this December!

My Favorite Things...December

1) Bath & Body Works Fresh Balsam Candle - Favorite Thing! I love the smell of a good fresh balsam candle...just adds to the already amazing smell of a real Christmas tree.  Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. 
2) Scrooge - This is the original & best (in my opinion) version of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. It has Albert Finney in it and it's the most beautiful musical version; "Thank you very much, thank you very much, that's the nicest thing that anyone's ever done for me!" It was a family tradition in my house to watch this on Christmas Eve before bed.  It is a favorite thing...but also a wish that my heart breaks for every year. 
3) Love Actually - Favorite Thing! My husband and I both love this movie, it never gets old.
4) How the Grinch Stole Christmas - Favorite Thing! I LOVE Jim Carrey...I don't know why, but I think he is just the funniest.  His facial expressions and voices make me laugh - it's so silly.  
5) Holiday/Christmas Cards - Favorite Thing...and Wish! Getting snail mail has always been a favorite of mine. Especially now as an adult, it's so nice to get an invite, thank you, birthday card, etc...instead of a bill!  So I check my mailbox every day with kid-like anticipation.  Today I'm wishing for our first card...;-)
6) The Polar Express - Favorite Thing! I've loved this book since I was a kid.  I've already read it to Wake, but can't wait til he can actually understand it. 
7) Christmas Wreath Cookies - Favorite Thing! These are basically glorified rice krispie treats, but remind me of my childhood.  I make these every year! Stay tuned because I will be sharing all my favorite cookie recipes (including this one) on next weeks "Taste of Tuesday" post ;-). 
8) SILK Dark Chocolate Almond Milk - NEW Favorite Thing! I just discovered Dark Chocolate Almond Milk this week! It got me thinking...I like Starbucks mochas but can't afford to buy one every day...hmmmm.  Therefore I have come up with my own concoction; put 1/4 - 1/2 cup of dark chocolate almond milk in a coffee mug and heat in microwave for 30 secs.  Then take the 9) aerolatte and foam up your milk.  Add coffee and enjoy!
9) Aerolatte - Favorite thing! I got mine at Bed, Bath & Beyond.  
10) Poinsettias - Wish! I love decorating with poinsettias during the Holidays...what a simple way to make your house beautiful and festive! I'm wishing I could cover my entire front porch and fireplace with them.
11) Slippers - Favorite thing! As long as my feet are warm, I'm warm!
12) The wonder & magic of Christmas to children - Wish! I'm so excited about teaching Wake about the birth of Jesus and the magic of this season. Believing is such an amazing thing! I know he won't really understand it all this year...but I'm wishing to see the wonder in his eyes.
13) SNOW - Wish!  I'll be heading back home to Michigan over the Holidays to see my family and I'm really wishing that it snows.  I love seeing it snow (since I'm there for such a short amount of time) but more importantly I want Wake to see snow for the first time.
14) Skiing - Wish! I won't be home long enough to head North to hit the slopes BUT I really wish I could. I LOVE SKIING!
