Okay I am a total Christmas junky. Tree is up, presents wrapped, lights on the porch, cards addressed and stamped. As I am stuck home w/ the funk I was thinking about what I want for Christmas. So what do you guys want?

Besides world peace, a healthy colon and clear sinuses...I want a Chanel purse!

Ya' know, I'm not sure what I'd like. I do know that I have 17 days off at the holidays, and that's a nice treat in itself....**sigh**, no waking up at 4:30 am. I went and got myself a little living Christmas tree and puts some lights on it, so it looks really cute. It will be fun this year because I actually have gifts that I bought for people so I can put them under the tree. This year will bring totally unexpected things, all new traditions with someone new.

I'm a total Christmas nut myself. I LOVE X-mas! I don't have my tree up yet but I've been itching to get the decorations out. I think I might do that this weekend with the kids and hubby. But there a lot of things I want for X-mas :) Mainly I want a diamond circle pendant though. Right now I have a diamond heart pendant with floating chips on the inside but it's way too much maintanence because I have to keep taking it up to get clean out. The floating chips are sandwiched in between two clear plates. I love it but like I said, too much work! Oh and not to mention I want season one of Heros - I'm so addicted to that show now that I want to know what happened in the first season.

I am a total Christmas nut, too!  My trees are up and my cards are done... just finishing up my shopping and then on to the gift wrap.  It's hard to say what I want this year.  I already feel so blessed to be pregnant with our son after many years of trying that I can't imagine wanting much more.  Of course, if someone insists on buying me something, I wouldn't mind having a new Louis Vuitton bag!  tongue

I second the coach purse motion!!!! My boyfriend bought me one for graduation and then I bought one this fall with what was left of my grad money and now I'm a coach junky!!
I think what I really want is my mouth to be healed by Christmas!! I'm having my wisdom teeth yanked out of my mouth on the 14th so I'm hoping I can get normally by the 24th!

I would really like someone to come to my house and decorate with all of my favorite Christmas things - so I can just enjoy them! I really don't like the decorating - or undecorating - part.

I do have my eye on a new Dooney&Burke handbag though - since we're on the handbag topic ;-)

I just want to stare at my christmas tree all day long!
I can't think of anything i want for Christmas. I am really a very happy, satisfied person. I love Christmas. I love the lights, snow, family, cookies, really everything about it. I don't need anything really. A new colon like everyone else. I suppose DVD's for those days when i just don't feel well enough to go out. I love tv on dvd. That would be great. And snow. Lots of snow.

All you snow-lovers are welcome to have mine...I hate it!

Thanks to the snow and crappy roads I got rear-ended today, I know that can happen regardless of bad roads but obviously it does increase the risks of it happening.

That's what I want for Christmas - to spend it on a hot beach with a Santa running around with a cooler full of beer. lol. =)
 
pb4 - Sorry to hear you got rear-ended. Did you get hurt at all? I hope not. I absolutely hate driving in snowy, icy weather. It is so scary. All the roads around here are covered with ice.
 
For Christmas, I want some new tennis shoes...I'm trying to start working out and hoping those will help motivate me. And, yes, what I want most of all is my colon to get healthy again.
