My two front teeth!
Okay, so I haven't been able to truthfully sing that song since I was 6 or 7, but I distinctly remember how cool I thought it was to be able to do so.
This year I didn't really know what to ask for. My parents always set a limit for me and my seester, so there were a few things that I knew couldn't be on my list because they were a bit too expensive.
So what were some of the things I asked for?
Michael Kors Shiny Rose Golden Watch
I know that Rose Gold has been all the rage this season, but that's honestly not the reason I chose it. I really didn't have much of a choice. Michael Kors originally sold this watch in gold, but it has since become unavailable except for eBay, of course. Fortunately, Rose Gold looks really good on my skin tone. And besides, it would be a nice change from the golden, round, faux Michael Kors watch that I wear nearly every day.
BOSU Balance Trainer
|Available numerous places, including Target|
I first tried one of these at the gym and it was pretty fun. Balancing on it while doing squats was certainly an adventure the first time, but I got the hang of it quickly and have been wanting to do more exercises with it. I just don't particularly like the thought of someone watching me while I try to balance on one, so I thought it would be nice to have one for home. Not sure if the parents bit on that one or not, but we'll see!
Lindsay Phillips Flats

|Robin Gem Snap|
I already have a pair of Lindsay Phillips leopard flats that I discovered at TJMaxx, but I love them so much I asked for another pair in gray flannel, too. Not to mention that I have the option to change the flower snap on top! So I asked for the Robin Gem Snap, too. Whether or not my mom broke down and bought them online remains to be seen, but if she didn't, I'll be getting them for myself the day after Christmas!
I desperately need a new set of tires. As much as I hate to admit that I've let them wear down so far without replacing them earlier, I have to tell you that they're nearly bald. I'm pretty good about the upkeep of my little Veronica, but tires are expensive! And I've also had a few other repairs to take of recently. So, I told my parents that they could contribute to getting me a new set of tires. I'm fairly certain this one didn't make their list of things to get me, but with the extra days I'm working this month, I'll be able to afford new ones just fine.
A Polaroid Camera
|The Impossible Project|
I know it's difficult to find working Polaroid cameras, but The Impossible Project has made it easy to obtain a refurbished one and they even sell film! This particular model is one that falls into the price range for parent Christmas gifts and is a Polaroid Sun 660. I've bought film from Impossible in the past when I purchased an SX-70 camera on eBay back in early 2010, but then I had to return the camera because it wasn't working properly. I'm planning on getting another one in the future, but with Impossible's prices on those, I'll have to wait.
Even though it's possible I won't get any of these things, I'm just grateful to have a wonderful family to spend Christmas with. The only thing that would make Christmas even better is if my boyfriend were here to share the day with me...luckily he'll be here a few days after and we'll be able to have another little Christmas of our own.
