What's on your Christmas list?

In lieu of the holidays and it being TEN days until Christmas.. I was wondering what everyone was asking for???
I had a bit of a hard time this year giving ideas to my parents and David, but I feel like I asked for just what I wanted, and would have probably bought myself - which may be why I couldn't think of what to ask for.

Heart of the Matter by: Emily Giffin
Erin and I love Giffin's books and have read all of them! This is Giffin's newest delight and I cannot wait to see if Santa brought it to me so I can dive in!

Lauren Conrad is quite the fashionista but she is also an amazing author! I have also read all of her books thus far and have been patiently waiting for this! Of course, by the time I thought to finally purchase, Christmas is right around the corner!

I love love LOVED this movie and it recently came out.  It is among a few movies that I'm craving to watch bundled up eating snacks with David.

Of course my little gems that I hinted to David about cannot be shown because the site will not let me save them but one can be seen here :)
This 'Torque' ring is so fascinating and I feel like it is so unique!

We'll see what Santa brings!!!
Share with me your gift ideas!

Keep A Child Alive

Buy Life
"There is a profound difference between living and life. Living may extend time for another day. But life is far more than sleeping and waking. Life is more than merely existing. And, although it would be easier, life cannot be bought in a pill. That is why Keep A Child Alive buys more than just the pills needed to fight HIV/AIDS in Africa and India."
You may have seen celebrities posting their last tweet, post, or blog recently in order to raise money for an amazing cause.  Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian Odom, Usher, Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga and many more have given up their digital lives until $1,000,000.00 is raised for the Keep A Child Alive organization.  It is an amazing cause and it is really easy to donate, not to mention it's the coolest charity I've ever seen!

There are MANY ways to donate!
