Five on Friday - My Christmas Wish List

Happy Black Friday, all!  I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving Day yesterday.  Not sure how many will actually even be reading this post since it’s a busy day for many, but I’m running out of days to get everything posted, and I figured since today is the biggest shopping day of the year that it was the perfect day to share a few things that are on my Christmas wish list.  Clickable links are below each picture in case you see something that you need for yourself.  ;o)

O N E – Things

I’ve been in love with that gold S’well bottle since I first laid eyes on it, but I refuse to buy it for myself because of the price.  I’m in desperate need of a gym bag and I am loving that pink one.  A new iPhone is probably #1 on my list this year because the battery life on my iPhone 6 is horrible these days.

Have y’all seen this meme yet?

Yeah, that’s me all day erry day now.

T W O – Clothes & Accessories

I’m all set for fall and winter clothes-wise, but I’m always up for some new accessories.  That necklace and that ring in silver (not gold) have both been calling my name for about a year now… both are just gorgeous!  In addition to needing a gym bag, I’m also in desperate need of new running shoes.  I’ve been wearing mine for around four years now and I’ve walked probably hundreds and hundreds of miles in them.  The tread is starting to wear out on the bottom and my pinky toe is starting to ache after my treadmill walks.  I’m loving the way these look, but I really like to try mine on first before purchasing.

T H R E E – For the Home

We have been using the same bath towels for over nine years now and they are stiff and crunchy and just plain gross.  I’ve tried the ol’ white vinegar and baking soda trick several times, and while it usually gets them feeling fresh after that load, they seem to go right back to being gross shortly after that so I’m ready for some new ones.  Plus, now that I’m a grown up and all, I think I it would be nice to have something a little more luxurious.  I never really thought that it was necessary to have nice towels until just recently… the older I get, the more important quality becomes… and our Target towels just aren’t doing the trick anymore.

I’m also wanting some new champagne flutes… ours are about 12 or 13 years old and they have blue stems which I’m not crazy about anymore. 

I recently started baking muffins more often and I would love another set of silicone baking cups… I have 12, but the last time I baked muffins I realized it would be nice to have 24 for the times that I’m making a double batch.

That silver round tray – I die!  Want want want!  And that three-tiered metal tray – NEEEED.

F O U R – Books

All three of these are at the top of my list, hardbacks only, please!

  1. Lol! I literally laughed out loud to the landline joke. So true! I need to read the new Nicholas Sparks book, too! I'm obsessed with him!!

    1. I am, too! I've read every single one of his books except for this new one. There's never been one that I didn't like!

  2. Haha the landline meme is so me too! Those nike shoes look cute - I have a few pairs in that style and love them! Also, love that silver tray - I know exactly where I could use that! Thanks for sharing :)

    1. Ah so glad to know that you like them! I might try to find them in a local store and try them on first to make sure they're comfy. Thanks for stopping by! XO

  3. So much fun friend. My bff has that exact iPhone and adores it. I hope Santa is good to you this year. That tiered tray is amazing too. I would LOVE one of those myself.

  4. Great list Linds! You'll have to let me know what you think about the iPhone 7. I have the 6s. Hope you guys had an awesome thanksgiving!

  5. Yes to so many of those. I really want an iwatch this year! I love that necklace you listed. I saw a similar one at Loft last week that I almost bought but held out. Great list of things. Love that meme.

  6. Isn't it funny how things like quality towels become so much more important when we are older!

  7. The iPhone 7 is on my wishlist, too! I love that meme! I am constantly plugging in my phone because I have an OCD with it being fully charged. Giftcards are the perfect gift.

  8. Bath sheets are my favorite - I love that they feel "enough" when you get out of the shower or bath and help dry you off faster!

    1. I think so, too! We may just have to get those this time instead!
