{Link Up} Christmas Wish List 2014

Well ladies, it's that time of year again. Jingle Bells, Silent Night, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer all playing on repeat. Newspapers packed with advertisements. Twinkling lights and greenery everywhere. A multitude of red and green and all things sparkly. You know it... it's Christmas and it's by far my favorite holiday of the year! Now don't get me wrong, I know we haven't gotten to Thanksgiving yet. I don't plan to skip it by any means. I'm all about some homemade food, a multitude of desserts, and stories being swapped between family and friends. That's what it's all about ladies, that's what it's all about. But I'm not going to lie and say that Christmas doesn't have it's perks. Waking up Christmas morning to see what's under my tree hasn't gotten any less exciting with age I'll tell ya that. So what do I hope to find under my tree this year... here's my wish list. 

My Grown Up Christmas List

Zara Blanket Scarf
I have absolutely fallen in love with my two Zara blanket scarves. This fall I purchased the tan tartan plaid and the black plaid. After seeing this autumn blend blanket scarf, I knew I had to add it to my collection as well. I intended to wait until Christmas to see if Santa brought it to me but I just couldn't wait until then so I may or may not have purchased this already for a Christmas gift to myself. You ladies do that too, right?

Proud Supporter of Messy Hair and Sweatpants Tee
Story of my life. So why not advertise it proudly with this cute baseball tee and a pair of leggings? I think so my friends. I think so.

Monogrammed Rain Coat
This has been on many of my wish lists throughout this year but I've yet to pull the trigger on it. I figured why not add it to my Christmas wish list. Someone may get it for me, someone may not. But I can promise you this. If it's not under the tree, it'll definitely be in my closet by Spring!

Hunter Boot Socks
As many of you know, I really debated long and hard on whether or not to purchase my Hunter rain boots this fall. Forking out $150 for a pair of rain boots wasn't necessarily an easy decision but it was one I made regardless.  After having them for a couple of months now, I'm not sure why I ever debated the issue. I am in LOVE with my boots and seriously am considering purchasing another pair in navy or red. I wear them constantly. They are super comfortable to be a bulky shoe and they keep my feet nice and toasty. Since I'm pretty sure I'll be wearing them almost daily come this winter with all the snow that's predicted, I definitely want some of these adorable fleece and cable knit boot socks to rock with them.

Tan Suede Ankle Boots
Hello, my name is Sara and I have a boot buying problem. I just can't get enough of them. Because of this I steer clear of boot aisles at shoe stores but after seeing these cute babies at Old Navy... well, I need them! I don't own a single pair of ankle boots and since these are less than $40 I think it's not too much to ask for...

Monogrammed Ballet Flats
As a teacher, flats happen to be my best friend. When I caught sight of these cute flats with a monogram, it was love at first sight! I'll take them in any color.

Willow Tree Nativity Scene
I've never really been a person who collected things but after seeing Kevin's aunt's Willow Tree nativity scene collection, I have to admit that the idea of collecting this beauty definitely came to mind. I absolutely love nativity scenes. The story they share is one that everyone must know. They tell the story of our precious Lord and Savior and how He came to earth so that he could save us. A love like that can't even be described. The fact that this nativity scene is a neutral color that can be displayed all year long is the reason I have to have this one. Unfortunately, I can't spend $600+ to have the whole thing. So my plan is to ask for pieces each Christmas until I've completed the set. This Christmas my plan is to just get the basic 6 piece nativity set. I plan to display it in a glass cloche on my mantle. Needless to say, it'd be nice if Santa somehow dropped this off early... as in right about the time we pull out our Christmas decor (;

Well that's what's on my list. What's on your list this year? Be sure to link up and tell us!
