My Grown-Up Christmas Wish List: 10 Things I’m Wishing For
As we grow older and change, our wants and priorities change along with it. Here is my grown up Christmas wish list. (If I actually made one, this would be it.)
My grown up Christmas list (cue whichever version of that song you like) has a few materialistic things and a few other things that aren't exactly tangible.
This is something I need to work on -- giving myself more credit. It's always good to strive for greatness but it's also good to give yourself props. It's a crazy life we live and you and me both deserve mad props for living it.
This is highly ironic that I'd choose gift cards for my Christmas Wishlist, because I use to refuse to give them to others. I thought they were highly impersonal and now I understand their appeal. Let me do the thinking (cat food or clothes?) you just do the gift card-ing.
Another form of basically giving someone a gift card, is giving them that cash money. These dolla dolla bills y'all, I do accept y'all. Plus it's another low maintenance gift for others to give you -- or me.
'Spa Day' already sounds expensive, so I'll take a facial, massage or mani/pedi. Anything that leaves me feeling relaxed and pampered, is something I'm really wishing for this Christmas.
Judge it down as in tone it down with the judgement. Every single person is different, from how we think to how we feel. I wish everyone could be less judgmental of each other. I think it's one of the worst qualities out there.
I've been thinking about a Cajun Filet Biscuit with Bo Rounds and sweet tea since I left North Carolina. If a Bojangles' could just pop up somewhere in Grand Junction, specifically near the Safeway on Horizon, that'd be great.
I absolutely love scratch off tickets and it seems like Colorado does too. Conveniently, there are a lot of Christmas themed scratch offs out there right now. If only -- I could scratch them off.
More reliability is something I'd really like from others for Christmas. I can't stand it when you're listening to someone, knowing that what they're saying won't come to fruition. Or relying on someone and getting letting down, let's stop that.
I never thought I'd actually want these for Christmas, but here I am putting socks and undergarments on the list. And if you're unsure what kind to get -- it's time to get gift card-ing.
In my dream I had last night I literally dreamed about paradise. In Colorado, I've got the forest surrounded by snow-capped mountains covered, but I've been missing the beach. I saw white sand beaches with crystal blue waters. A trip to the beach is definitely on my Christmas wish list.
